Happy Friday everyone! Today was actually a half day for the students where I teach – it’s prom night! I’m sure you can imagine that the half day was super productive & everyone was just so attentive!
Although I had to stay at work for the full day, I had something fun to look forward too – a trip to the LOFT outlet near me! The other day I realized I had two coupons that were about to expire – one for 20% off & another for $20 off – & luckily they could be used together. I also had a $25 gift card that I had saved from my birthday, so I was ready to do a little shopping.
Here’s what I got:
Black capri pants
Two cap-sleeved shirts
Two knitted 3/4 sleeve cardigans
Loose-fit, short-sleeved sweater
When all was said & done, I saved $152 off of retail price… woohoo! I texted Chris afterwards & told him that while I did do a little “damage,” at least I can’t complain that I have nothing to wear.
When I got home from my little shopping excursion, I ran to the bathroom to pop my contacts out! Throughout the entire day they were irritating me, & on my car ride home I could barely keep my right eye open it was bothering me so much. After that I quickly plopped down on the couch, turned on an old episode of Bethenny Ever After, & the pug & I fell asleep for a good hour or so.
When I woke up, I was simply… annoyed. Annoyed that my eye still hurt (I guess it’s my eye & not my contact), annoyed that I had slept for an hour, annoyed that this nap robbed me of any motivation to complete the quick run I had planned for the evening.
After forcing myself off of the couch, I took Stewie for a quick walk & proceeded to get annoyed that he wouldn’t just go. I got annoyed at the neighbor that calls him “Dewey” instead of Stewie. Then I came inside & was annoyed that I had to make dinner.
Blah. What the heck was wrong with me? Are any of these things really that big of a deal?
My eye hurts. Yes, that’s a little irritating but not the end of the world.
I missed a workout. Unfortunate, but again, who really cares? Am I going to wake up tomorrow 10 lbs. heavier & out of shape? Dear God I hope not.
Ok, so I don’t want to make dinner. Just throw something together & quit being such a baby about it!
I don’t really know what the point of this portion of the post is other than to acknowledge that I can be a grumpy little thing sometimes.
Sometimes, I need to just chill out. Breathe. Re-group. Throw a frozen pizza in the oven. Plan for some extra cardio tomorrow. Put a warm washcloth on my eye… or something, haha.
Be thankful that I was able to treat myself to some nice, new clothing this afternoon. Snuggle with this face:
As it turns out, there’s really not that much to be such a grump about.
How do you “snap out of it” when you find yourself in a funk?
