Ok, it was one of those days. I had a terribly frustrating morning which pretty much solidified my thought that I will never shop at Barnes and Noble again. Anyhow, my morning was awful but my afternoon and evening were pretty good. In fact, Boo and I had a somewhat giggly half hour before we ate dinner. Sully had a rough day too, we all were looking forward to a relaxing night. We ate dinner watched some TV and then things kind of went downhill from there, emotionally at least.
It wasn’t a horrid night but an unexpected phone call later and one more thing to deal with. Alone it wouldn’t be that big of a deal, but added to the pile it feels like a lot. Every time I feel like I’ve gotten a handle on things, or caught up on something or even a little step ahead of the game, I get dragged back ten steps. I could handle the usual “two steps forward and one step back” but this is just hard to deal with. At least I was gaining a step in the usual scenario.
I saw this quote tonight and it was so fitting.Terry Pratchett: “Don’t think of it as a big bucket of snakes. Think of it as one snake at a time.”
It reminded me that I need think differently. Look at things separately or at least broken down. One snake at a time…works for me.
