Today's fortune: "Your emotional nature is strong and sensitive."
Yeah. Poor Bob couldn't agree more. Unfortunately, the cookie forgot to mention bitchy, short-tempered and all-around grouchy. There's plenty to blame for this undesirable medley of emotions that befalls me, but ultimately, it falls to me to be able to control myself. And lately I can't seem to do that. Sigh.
We got up extra early this morning to jog down to the beach to catch the sunrise. It was spectacular. The sun was blood-orange, hovering just over the ocean, and it was breathtaking. No, I didn't have my camera, and yes, I did kick my own ass for having forgotten it. We drank in the scene and moved on. A slow jog back past the house and up and back down the bridge tested what precious little there is of my athletic abilities, and by the time we got back to the house I was whipped. I should have felt great that we had gone jogging in the first place, but I was too busy being mad at myself for all the other times I was too lazy to get out there. Good mood effectively ruined. Nice job, Lauren.
I just can't seem to shake the witchy-bitchies. I think we're still trying to settle in, and I've got my kids on my mind, and money (or lack there-of)..it never ends.
But it will. I am confident of that. My dad is always full of good advice, and he always used to tell me that when shit hits the fan, the only way out is the way through. And he's a smart guy, so we'll march on.
Here's to looking forward to tomorrow's cookie.
