*I stayed home from work today to try and get over my cold.
*Maybe it was my cold. Maybe it was the rainy weather. But I felt kind of down today.
*Garth Brooks may be to blame, too. Well, not him personally. But for years I have wanted to see him in concert. Then I saw the announcement that he was coming to Spokane for a concert. But the tickets were being sold the day of Mom’s service, and I thought the performances were only over the weekend, and I had my own shows. When I found out later they extended into the following week, I was pretty bummed. And to see all the photos and comments on Facebook of how wonderful the concert was did not help my mood.
*It was a productive day, though. I made a list in the morning, and all the things on the list were accomplished, so I guess that was something.
*Today was a wallowing day. Today was a “I feel like a failure” day.
*This is suppose to be about gathering the graces in my life. I did have those, too. One was sharing with Paul over dinner and tears a very big disappointment, and feeling better after I talked with him. Paul’s dermatologist appointment went well, and his skin looks good. And Paul stopped at Costco and got some yummy food. I also met with some people who are going to help me with the Christmas show at the theater. So not all was lost today. There were a few rays of sunshine in my otherwise gloomy day.
