I have just had a crappy day. I got some disappointing news today, and I let it totally get me down.
Needless to say, I haven’t been the happiest person today – a lot less talkative than normal and I kind of got sucked into this black hole of a bad mood.
I did treat Nick and I to a snack at lunchtime, just to see if it would help. I got a mocha (half coffee, half hot chocolate) from The Chocolate Spike – it was just as amazing as the last time I had it, but it didn’t do much to cheer me up.
Work was blah – super busy, but not much fun.
I was happy to come home and see Maggie. And very happy that dinner was leftovers, because I was not in the mood to really do anything once we got home.
We sat and watched the news while we played with Maggie, and that helped a little. It’s hard to stay upset when you have such cute animals at home ;)
We had some leftover baked pasta from last night, along with some peas.
I love leftover pasta – the flavors intensify after sitting, and it’s always more flavorful the day after.
Plus, leftover pasta dishes for dinner are just easy.
I hate when I let something affect me as much as this did, but it was just one of those things that kind of “kicked me when I was already down”, you know? And it’s hard to come back from that when you feel like there’s not much to come back to.
Anyway, there it is.
No sugar coating, no trying to act happy. I know that I’m still blessed in many ways and I’m extremely grateful for what I do have…today was just a weird/off day for me, and I’m more than ready for it to be over.
We’re going to TRY to stay awake to watch White Collar tonight, so I think a snack may be in order.
A slice of cake?
I haven’t decided, but I know I’m going to have some type of “dessert”.
Off to cuddle with my loves and have a good night!
