listening to the dishwasher
It's late, but I'm up agitated and annoyed because my day was much less than I hoped for it. I got much less done than I wanted to, and the chores left looming ahead of me for tomorrow evening are hard to swallow especially considering I have a meeting tomorrow evening.
My world feels like it is slowly crumbling. There have been no huge crashes - no tornadoes or hurricanes, just a lot of rain which is subtly eroding me.
There were good things today, and yes I am blessed, but right now I'm also a bit panicky. My day was packed like sardines in a can, but there is so much left that I actually felt guilty for relaxing when I got home.
I have cried a few tears today, and have taken some VERY deep breaths.
One of the few happenings which cheered me up today (laugh if you must) was the arrival of a new pair of shoes. They are fabulous, and not to mention, quite inexpensive. Sometimes it's the simple things that can ruin or rescue a day.
simple things that bring a smile to my face:
the inspiration wall in my office
hot cider, coffee or tea
