The inevitablility of life


You know it’s going to be a rotten day when you get an email for the first time in 3 hours and it happens to be 10% off coupon for Wingzone. I feel so loved.

If you had not previously gotten the gist of my mood from my recent posts, then I’ll just come out and say that I have felt utterly BLAH lately. I don’t want to use the word “depressed” because it could imply so much. Or so little; it can be a surprisingly underwhelming term due to overuse. I’ve been feeling in a funk, much like Elliot. And his mood greatly affects my own. When you start stacking you get: a blue tarp still covering the side of our house, which is saddening each and every time we pull into the driveway, a lack of fence on the side of our house meaning we have to walk outside with out dogs for every pee and poo and for general direction, Elliot being a whiny ass little.. I mean, er, uh, a baby going through changes, and POISON IVY gets hefted on top of this mounting pile of Overwhelming Things and that is why when I get into my office these days, all I feel like doing is play Sushi Go Round until my eyes glaze over and I wipe the tiny bit of drool from the corner of my mouth, realizing it has finally reached lunchtime.

However, I am noticing that my feelings today – my range of emotions – has changed slightly for the better, despite being paid but putting a great majority of my paycheck towards bills. Were I not saving for my Chicago trip, I’d have a good bit of extra cash, and that would make me feel very good. I am trying to arrange some lunch get-togethers with people next week and I fear telling them that the extent of our choices reaches to about 10 bucks, because mama’s broke again.

I am also reading a new book, Prep, and although I can completely identify with the main character and love the overall story, I must say that it is kind of downtrodden. The main character is very sad about life – for apparently no real reasons, and I can’t help but feel all covered in ick after i read a chapter, even if I did genuinely like the writing. Weird, right?

SO, what do you do when you’re feeling this way? I know that Swistle has given advice for cheering onesself up, but what little things do you use to turn that frown upside down?
