I'm not sure exactly why I'm cranky today, but I am. It might be because Husband has a tummy ache and he isn't so pleasant to be round when he isn't feelin so well. It might be that we have A LOT of people coming over for Easter on Sunday and I haven't really cleaned much. It might be because I feel like everything is being done at the last minute and I'm going to go CRAZY on Saturday and Sunday. Or it could be that I was getting a class out of my cupboard this morning and I had a flash of my mom's face. It was weird. I'm sure it has to do with Easter coming up because that was always a big holiday in our house growing up. We would shop for weeks for the perfect Easter dress for my little sister and I. We'd have the shoes, tights, hat, and even a purse. We would go to church and then go to a relatives house for dinner and egg hunts.
Easter was the first holiday we had after she passed. We had to get over the first one in order to move on. Well, THEY had to get over the first one in order to move on. For me, this is my first one. Hopefully, it will be a good thing that EVERYONE is going to be at our house on Sunday and I won't end up in a puddle of tears on the kitchen floor gripping my wine bottle. Although, that would make a lovely holiday tradition. Oh how it would make my MIL frown and be SO concerned because she thinks I drink too much. Hmmm maybe I'll do it, just to throw a wrench in the day. Lets see how my ham turns out first. If I burn it, I'm going to end up on the floor clutching my wine bottle. If I don't, I'll play the "perfect DIL role".
Jenn has been making a gratitude list all week long. She's been in a bit of a funk herself and wants to list things she's grateful for. After reading her list today, I decided to steal her idea and make a list of my own. Hopefully I'll be able to get over myself and change my mood around. It's worth a shot!
I am grateful for:
1: My phone. If I didn't have my cell phone, I would be able to text randomly about nothing.
2: Chapstick. Without my chapstick, my lips would be so dry and cracked.
3: My bloggy friends. Without you, I wouldn't have anyone to whine too or celebrate with.
4: My friends IRL. Without them, I wouldn't have a social life and I'd be even MORE of a crabby bitch then I am right now.
5: My husband. Even though he isn't in the best of moods right now, it will pass and we'll be laughing and joking again.
6: My body: Yes, it's failed me many times, but there have been times when it hasn't failed me. Like being strong enough to run a MILE!
7: My cute coffee cup. It's a to-go cup and it keeps my coffee warm so I won't dump it out and waste it.
8: The grocery store. Where I can buy yummy delicious foods like kiwi fruit...mmmmm
9: Our hot water heater which allows me to take a HOT bath or shower after a long workout.
10: My ipod. I can plug the ear buds into my ears and block out everything else and get over myself!
Well now, that wasn't TOO hard. It improved my mood slightly, but hey, I'll take it!
