I have nothing creative to share with you today. Although I will show you pictures of my new glasses.
Anyway, I have ten minutes before I need to clock in to work and I’m just sitting here trying to make a mental list of all the things I need to do today. But all I can really do is just reflect on the last couple of weeks. Sometimes life is just hard to deal with, you know? Sometimes it all seems to pile up at once. One thing I’m grateful for is the nice things that have been mixed in with the shitty stuff. They help to remind me that it’s all good- sometimes it’s just hard and you’ve just got to learn to deal with it.
One of those nice times came the other night as Andy and I sat across from each other at Wingers. We really didn’t have time to go out to dinner. There was homework to be done and housework to be done. But we both just said “F– it. We’re going out.” I think we were both just spent. It had been such a long, stressful couple of weeks and all we could hope for was to get over the hump soon. So we didn’t talk about any of that crap. We just ate our popcorn and sticky fingers and talked about nothing that mattered at all. And it felt good.
Sometimes just saying “F– it” and letting yourself enjoy an hour at Winger’s is all you need to be able to get up the next morning and keep clawing your way through all that other crap.
