THE CAMEL
It's really hard for me to climb on top of my quivering pile of motivation to write something when I'm angry or upset or sad or stressed out. Taking deep breaths doesn't really help. Straightening my back and consciously lowering my shoulders only works so long until the next time, minutes or hours later, when I realize I'm hunching or slumping again. Some days are just full of Suck and some days that start out fine and putter along at a pleasant speed are suddenly derailed by an unexpected turn of events: something done or not done, expectations not met, an attitude collision, or just the breaking point of too many things to deal with.

Patience swells and snaps. Tears threaten and glimmer. A storm of sighs and stomping, swearing and slams ensues. Frustration mounts and then stands at the edge shouting that it can't take it anymore; it's going to jump! FINE, I shout, BE THAT WAY. Then the melodrama makes me laugh and suddenly, there is a space where the straw can settle, and the ruffled, but steady, realization reveals that for now, the back remains intact.

Had to be done, even though in a normal month, I wouldn't probably have shared :)

It's times like these that you need be-boppa-rebop-rhubarb-pie! (sorry, channeling Garrison Keillor for a moment, there...)

I sincerely hope that tomorrow is better. :-(

On the bright side, I bet you didn't find mouse poop on your desk this morning! ;-)

I always need rhubarb pie. Mmmm pie!

I hate days full of suck. You have such a positive attitude about it though! I am sending you a bunch of HUGS and positive vibes so that your aggravation can be dissipate and you can be calm and happy once more! I hope everything is okay...xoxo

Re: From Megsie

I didn't have a positive attitude in the middle of it, that's for sure. ARGH.

I'm so glad that you always find your way back to laughter. You learned that trick young and it still is the very BEST way to go when the road is rough. Love & Hugs, Lizardmom

I'm glad, too. It's an excellent defense mechanism!

Hope today is a much better day!
