• Ever have one of those days…?

    24 Nov 2008

    I’ve experienced a day so far that would normally put me in a bad mood…may even make some people cry. But it’s been so comical that I’m now looking at it from a completely different perspective.

    1. Have you ever been fighting a cold/sinus infection for over 6 weeks that self-medicating isn’t helping and then finally break down to call the doctor proclaiming “I’m finally going in today!“…and then you can’t get an appointment?
    2. Have you ever gotten dressed and ready for work and then realized that you forgot to clean the cat litter…not just once but for the past week and this is the FINAL day before your spouse starts invoking sanctions – possibly calling ASPCA or PETA to report you?
    3. Have you ever been putting the coffee pot in the dishwasher only to miss by a few inches and the pot drops splattering the leftover coffee all over the cabinets and floor?

      …and here’s the real kicker:

    4. Have you ever been walking from your car into your office and you look down and some stupid inanimate object – a rubber glove of all things – is telling you what it thinks about your day?

    Folks, I can’t make this stuff up!

    I know, many people have had a much worse day that I have so far and I’m thankful that I’m still here to write this and poke fun at the happenings in my world.

    I just wanted to say that no matter how things are going…no matter what kind of signs (or flip-offs) you’re getting, no matter how bad your job searching is going or how much of a jerk your boss is being, this too shall pass. Find the humor in everyday annoyances and you’ll probably live that much longer to enjoy even more of them!

    Have a great week – and great Thanksgiving for my U.S. readers – everyone!!

    All the best,
