A Case of the Grumps

I’m grumpy. The truth is, I’ve been grumpy for at least a week. Probably longer. And it’s not like me to be grumpy that long. If I could guess at the reason, I would say it has something to do with sitting in a window-less, soul-crushing office every day of the summer with an the air conditioner that’s convinced we live in the tropics. And I have a feeling that if I dared to look underneath the growliness, what I would find is an unanticipated disappointment with my current career choice… But this post was meant to try and cheer me up. So: instead of thinking of all the things that make me grumpy, I’m going to think of all the things that make me happy. Here are some of them:

1. The smell of my husband on the bed pillows.
2. Reading a good book until 3am knowing full well I have to be up in a few hours.
3. Finding a particularly good spot in the library, at one of the big wooden tables, near a window.
4. When there is no conceivable way to avoid rain puddles: putting on my rain boots and embracing them instead.
5. Drinking coffee with my grandparents in the mornings.
6. Hugs from my little brother.
7. Knowing that my last day of work is tomorrow.

There. I feel happier.

  1. As to drinking coffee with the grandparents...

    Would surely be one of MY FAVORITE things.....say, if it occured like at noon.

    By the way, that plate of fruit Bobbi made for me, I still got it. A few hours late. Sorry I missed you! My cell phone was downstairs. I may have been hung over.
