It definitely started out as one of those days. The hormones in full on attack mode and the caffeine cowering in the corner of my psyche. It was all going fine until I got to work. Well, I suppose the little things actually started annoying the entire crap out of me on the drive in. You know, getting stuck behind the 18-wheeler and no one willing to let me over, or the big mows the grass on the side of the road thingie in my way (yes, that IS a technical term) and people in general not acknowledging my complete ownership of the road. That's not weaving, that's me marking my territory!
So anyway, I have been mulling it over trying to decide just when my brain turned into the Incredible Hulk. I am now most certain that calling the IRS for the business I work for was my undoing. Y'all~I try to be nice to everyone, really I do. To the point where I wonder if I surpass niceness and and am becoming the doormat. Yet, 5 minutes of electronic menus, 15 minutes on hold listening to baaaaddd music, to get someone who tells me that they cannot help me is REALLY frustrating. I mean really. I guess 20 minutes in the scheme of the universe isn't so bad, but dang it, it is MY 20 minutes and we ARE talking about the IRS-nuff said. Grrr.
I was so bad (hangs head in shame). I had to make a run to the post office and the nice civil servant asked how my day was. Typically my reply would be "Great, and yours?" Instead today I said, "Shoulda stayed the hell in bed". What did that poor woman do to deserve that? She was just trying to do her job, but here comes Mrs. Hormonal with a stick it where the sun don't shine attitude.
Well, I fed the hormonal beast lunch and threw another pot of coffee at her and am now back to pseudo normal. I think the beast was mostly just hungry, although she was put in place a bit by this: "We also pray that you will be strengthened with his glorious power so that you will have all the patience and endurance you need." Colossians 1:11 (NLT). Ahem. Thanks, Lord. I needed that. (I wonder if maybe I should be concerned that I am referring to myself as two different personalities. Do me a favor, if y'all feel threatened, get me a straight jacket, mkay?)
So now that the beast is properly contained, here is some really cool stuff I found at some of my favorite blogs and want to share!!
