I have felt so unmotivated recently. All I want to do is sleep, but my mind won’t shut off and I end up staying up until midnight every night. This is terrible, not good, counterproductive, crazy making stupid. For reals. It’s not helping my mood at all.
Today I had the day off and Josephine went to Ga Ga’s house around 10:30, and I, to my dismay, got (almost) nothing accomplished. I was in a terribly sour (the sourest) mood. I took my sour self to the house to screw on some light switch and plug faceplates, but when I got there Taylor told me that it would have to wait until later, since he would be switching out a lot of the plugs. Grrr. Sour mood got even sourer er er er. So I spent an hour wiping down the old faceplates (such a colossal waste of time), and sorting out the ones that were no good (why didn’t I do that when I took them off, answer me that?). Afterwards I decided to wash the dog, since Sir Buddy apparently had some ticks, and the flea medicine is apparently not killing the super strong fleas. I wrestled Buddy to the ground, lathered him up and washed him off. As soon as I was done he ran right over to the grass and rolled around in something nasty because, dammit, a dog should not be clean! (Gotta love his dedication to grunginess).
After that I decided that I was done at the house (ahem, like I’ll ever be done), and I went to the one place that everyone should go when they are in a sour mood… WALMART! Seriously, dumb decision. Dumbest decision ever. My dumbity was rewarded, however, when I found Taylor a black cowboy shirt in his size for five bucks. Almost made it worth it that I stood in long lines, was almost run over by numerous people in the aisles, and was generally a scowling bitch who was annoyed at everyone (plus I left one of my bags at the check stand and had to go back after I was already on my way home. Double grrr). Maybe I should have just stayed home and napped.
I am still in a foul mood now, so sorry for the negative ninny post. Not even Josephine and her cuteness could salvage my mood. However, I read a quotation today that I feel I should share.
“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” -Emerson
This is going to help me tomorrow, because today… well, let’s just say today can suck it.
