I don't want to!

I woke up with obstinance today. As if my arms were already folded across my chest and I was shaking my head no to everything asked and I wasnt even out of bed yet. I'm stubborn. Did you know that about moi? Yep. Stubborn. I try not to be when it's not warranted. Part of this idea comes from my mom telling me I was stubborn when I was younger, and reminding me of that now that I'm older. I'm smiling as I type.

So I have the "I don't want to" attitude today. Almost like I want to answer everything asked of me with that reply. When I get in this sort of mode, to music I turn....Coldplay's "Don't Panic" is playing in my life background right now. "we live in a beautiful world,yeah we do"
Ah the Garden State soundtrack, I go here on "off" days, to visit some awesome music and remember a really cool movie.

I think I've reached a plateau where all of the things, small things mind you, that annoy me have decided to join forces and visit me on the same day. Office politics, bad drivers, too much work and not enough hours in the day, or team members,  to get it all done,  people who are rude to others for no reason other than for their own entertainment (not a fan), sarcasm that hurts someones feelings.....

So let me address each one with a postive spin, so I can uncross my arms and begin saying yes, okay?

Office Politics, you're a total waste of time. Although I will not break rules, I will no longer let you have any of my energy. You're not worth it.

Bad Drivers, I forgive you. You are also an energy sapper, and I know that if I don't forgive you, but join you, I could get hurt or cause someone else to get hurt. So again, I will let you go ahead of me, I'm in no hurry.

Too much work/not enough hours/team members, you just aren't going to go away are you? I admire your tenacity. I'm going to now cohesively let you go as well. Send you on your way. You think you won but actually, I win, because you're keeping me employed. aHA!

People who are rude to others for entertainment purposes, you have nothing to do with me actually so I am sorry I even notice you. But I do, because I care about people. Please rent a movie or buy a cd, read a book, go on a long walk, for your entertainment, instead of slamming people into invisible walls. It's so not nice. And it WILL come back to you one day.

And finally, sarcasm that hurts someones feelings. You don't deserve to be in my blog. Breakfast at Tiffany's is fun time, with fabulous food, music, maybe a movie or book, you have no place here. What I can share with you is this: please understand that when one hurts another, emotionally, the one that does the hurting will eventually find that they are no longer able to get a good nights sleep, if there is any sort of human compassion present, at all. If the compassion well has run dry, please find out why and see if you can fill it back up. You will have the greatest "at the end of the day" feeling in the world. I wouldn't lie to you, trust me on this please.

I feel better now. Thank you for listening to me changing no to yes, maybe we should write a song about it.
Over breakfast. Eggs and rice? French toast? ohhhh you would LOVE my homemade pancakes.

I adore you people.

P.S. Dear Coldplay, I'm not panicking. w00t!

Hmm. Good idea.

Day job, I'm grateful for you, because you let me be home with my kids. And even though I wish someone would pay me just to be here and take care of them and to occasionally write novels on the side, at least I get to do those things and the day job only interferes with them a little.

House that's too old and needs a major overhaul that I can't afford and that isn't the dream house or anywhere close to it, you're on the prettiest street in Kirksville and you have plenty of potential and you hold a lot of love.

I feel much better now.

My day just got better because I gave you an idea to make YOUR day better. I simply adore you. Oh and I love your house, and you're right, it's on the prettiest street in Kirksville hands down.
