life's not always a picnic...



no...
life isn't always a picnic...
but do you ever just wake up grumpy?
for no apparent reason?
i mean, it doesn't happen very often to me...
but i REALLY don't like when it happens.
and honestly,
there's GOT to be a reason for it.
there can't just be "no apparent reason"...
right?

so.
i'm taking inventory.
i've gone down my list of all the things that seem to be irritating me.
- things that i CAN do something about.
- things completely out of my control.
- things that are ridiculously inconsequential
and frankly...
bottom line is this...
i just need to change my attitude today.
because i have a lot of things to be grateful for.
so what if nothing, over the weekend, seemed to turn out the way i envisioned.
it's no big deal.

- the picnic that ended up to be crazy-windy and a bit chilly WITHOUT a whole lot of pictures i love.
- the treats i was trying to prepare that were SO completely frustrating and not working and ugly.
- the treats that DID turn out a bit cute but were eaten before i could take pictures. (a lot of them eaten by ME...by the way...*grin*)
- frustrated about house-hunting...banks taking too long for answers (c'mon...it's been MONTHS).

little things...really.
little things in the BIG scheme of things...
i just need to put a smile on -
you know...
just fake it for a little while.
eventually the smile will induce feelings of happiness.
right?
because seriously...
there's nothing to be upset about.
not REALLY.
it's just one of those days.
BUT...
i do intend to change that...

because despite the crazy wind and the pictures i DIDN'T love from our picnic over the weekend...
there was LOTS of sunshine...

and sunshine makes me incredibly happy!


so...
happy monday...
despite my grumpiness. *wink*
who's with me?
