It’s been a stressful week. Oddly, most of these things have not involved me directly, but I’ve felt them just the same. I’m not really one to quote prayers, but the line in the Serenity prayer about accepting the things I cannot change comes to mind.
There’s been work junk and underhanded Machiavellian moves (thanks, Joe, love that word!) and other small, random sad things. A couple blogs I dug just closed up shop and went away. One clear night, the neighbors across the street lost a tree that must have been 5 million years old. If a tree crashes to the ground while you’re taking a shower but no one sees it fall, your husband will come upstairs and ask you what the hell you’re doing in the shower. After your name is cleared, you will feel sad for all the displaced squirrels.
I know, none of this makes much sense, but this week has me feeling like an antennae for gloom and the good news is I know it will pass. The bad stuff always does. Yesterday when I was feeling blue, I told my husband how I was feeling and then walked over and kissed my baby’s big fat cheeks while she was eating grapes and trying to act annoyed with me. That’s what it’s all about.
Got my 1 year coin at a meeting Tuesday and a friend surprised me with a book on gratitude, which is funny because that’s what my last post was about, and a cake that was so delicious I gained two pounds this week. My husband got me this coin holder keyring, which I feel is very sharp.
I guess this week wasn’t so bad afterall.
