I am all over the place this week. Yes, it is Feel Good Friday, but here is how I feel:
I feel sick and tired of having workmen in my house. There is a whole long post devoted to that one. Don’t even get me started… I told Tyler that I was ready to (you-know-what) slap someone soon.
I feel cold. The weather here is windy.
I feel completely and utterly discombobulated. We are packing and storing items to get ready to put our house on the market. We have boxes everywhere and the house is a mess. I hate things that are messy. This drives me nuts. I know that soon we will be done packing and everything will be perfect.
I feel like I want to throw everything away and start from scratch. At the rate my memory is going I won’t even remember that I put precious items the girls have made into boxes to look at “someday.”
I feel good that I haven’t “yet” gotten the 24 hour bug. Let’s all knock on wood for that. Mm, K?
I feel like I need lots of fatty food.
I feel happy that I got to be the room mom in Sarah’s Class for her party this week.
I feel ecstatic about my new advertisers and also rushed because it means more work.
I feel livid after dealing with phony, condescending people regarding our new house. Oh and you can bet I will be writing about this. It will be a pip of a post.
I feel happy anytime I can use the word “pip.”
I feel deeply saddened that the simplest concept of politeness and honesty seems lost in the world. Sometimes it is a hard decision to take the high road.
After all of these feelings that I am having I stop and remember this song that I heard on the radio this week.
It spoke to me.
It is like this song and I were meant to be. I hum it in my head when I am feeling frazzled and then…
I feel calm.
The song is called “Head Full of Doubt/Road Full of Promise” and that is exactly how I feel.
Specifically these lyrics calm me:
Decide what to be and go be it.
Like a bird in a cage I broke in and demanded that somebody free it”
