So today started out pretty crappy. I woke up with a headache, and it was POURING rain. I mean, buckets and buckets. In case you don't watch the weather channel, The South is being inundated with, well, rain. So, I went to work with the plan to go do some Christmas shopping at lunch, but it was storming like crazy, so I'm going to have to do that tomorrow. THEN I get a call from school, and I left my planner there last night. That planner has somehow turned into my life- if I don't have it I don't have a clue as to what is going on. So now I need to brave the weather and drive 1/2 an hour to get the thing, come back to work, finish all these projects... and do some grocery shopping for our big work Thanksgiving extravaganza on Friday. Oh, and did I mention that my computer has gotten a virus that has rendered it inoperable until I get the system recovery disk on Friday? Yes, it just gets better and better.
So naturally as I drove home for lunch I was in a pretty bad mood. Fuming about this and that, cursing the gods. Then when I got to my apartment complex the roads were fairly flooded and what do I see in front of my car? About 6 ducks! They seemed to think that the pond had just expanded and now they had new parts to explore. How can you be in a bad mood when there are DUCKS??? It is all much better now. My friend got a good report on her very premature baby, and now I've remembered that yes, things may not be all that great for me but put it in perspective and I have nothing to whine about.
I need to try to foster a more positive attitude.
