I’m cranky right now. That’s about all I can say to sum it up. I have just been tired in general lately, despite a great weekend. I’ve gotten to bed too late too many nights recently and I’m paying for it now.
Also, I made the mistake of lying in bed when my alarm went off and checking my email. I got a response back from the piano studio my boys take lessons at that my first two choices for lesson times for next year (right after school, to avoid conflicts with soccer or swim practice) have “already been taken”. The options they are giving me seem like a big fat “not gonna work” on our end. 🙁
This immediately stressed me out, because with piano lessons, once you set the time, it doesn’t change for the whole year. If we get times that don’t work, we are going to be feeling that pain for a long time. UGH. So yeah, I’m just really annoyed right now and have no idea what we will do now.
I am also crabby because my computer screen just got stuck on some weird magnified mode and it took me over 10 minutes to get it fixed! (This might be the epitome of me “sweating the small stuff” but what is it about computer issues that just make people go crazy?!!)
I think this morning I am going to turn to music. I don’t always listen to a ton of music, but I’ve been trying to remember to do so more lately. It has a way of brightening my mood in a way other things can’t.
I have a couple of songs I like to listen to when I’m in a bad mood. I also have a Pandora station called “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” which will usually play lots of upbeat but light music with positive tones- lots of reggae/ Caribbean music which makes me think of being on a beach.
Here are the two that I often turn to:
1. Bob Marley- “Three Little Birds” aka “Don’t Worry About a Thing”. You cannot listen to this song without feeling good. Also, I encourage you to watch the video. His smile is INFECTIOUS in these shots (if you’re in email, click to site for videos!).
