and I am down in the dumps!
I'm finding it hard to be happy, up, cheerful and motivated when the weather isn't playing along. It feels as if the greyness permeates into my heart. I've been grumpy and snapping at Monkey.
Not even coffee is helping.
I am reading the Happiness Project and hoping it will help, but my motivation is failing. It feels like a pipe dream.
It's probably because I have been so psyched for the week before Christmas... I had planned mornings in Wellington and visits to Stud1 at work. I'd planned beach trips and exploration at the river. But the weather is not playing nice.
Hopefully we'll have a dry Christmas day as my menu relies on bbq-ing. But I guess the George Foreman will suffice.
At least we don't need to head into the mall for anything and I am hitting the grocery at 7am on Friday to beat some of the madness - gotta get the salads as it WILL be salad weather on Santa Day. Positive thinking and all that!
The other worry/stress I have is that my mum's Christmas present seems to have gotten lost in the postal system between here and SA. I don't mind the gift itself but the 100 photographs capturing Monkey's life and loves, makes me feel sad and like I've let her down. Logically, I know that I have nothing to do with it, but again it's one of those things that I do. Something I need to work on.
Sorry for the verbal upchuck... better out than in right?
