Sometimes all it takes is a good day of self reflection to pull yourself back up.
Besides being extremely tired, today was a much better day… although I am still feeling very ‘sassy’. There were a few moments today where the sass came out, and I just had to let it go.
Mid-afternoon the Pixie sent me a text ‘want to grab a glass of wine I’m celebrating!’
As much as I wanted to help her celebrate, I also wanted to go home and sleep. I asked for a rain check for tomorrow and it was good.
It ended up being a long night at work trying to keep myself ‘focused’ long enough to put the finishing touches on our Royal Wedding show…. my new baby.
By the time I left work, it was late, and I still had errands to run before going home… I had to muster the energy to do it.
When I got home it was 8 p.m. and I couldn’t even think about trying to cook anything for dinner, so I settled on ramen noodles.
Yes, I still pick them up from time to time because they are quick and easy… and as much as I hate to admit it, I sometimes get a craving for then.
I’m not sure if there was a higher power intervening to keep me from over-loading on carbs, but as I went to strain them, about half of the noodles slid down the drain. Perfect… but I didn’t care. I would eat what was there, and it would be enough to get me to sleep.
I decided to watch a little Gray’s Anatomy and Private Practice, I never quite know how those shows are going to hit me.. and tonight was a crap shoot knowing my emotional state the past few days.
Surprisingly I made it through without so much as even welling up… maybe I’m in the clear. Perhaps the last 3 days have just been the perfect storm of turning 40, PMS (or DMS), and the anniversary. I hope so…
