I came here with the intention of writing an angsty and over-due work rant but I figured, Crap. Why even get into it? Nobody wants to hear me being cranky and going on about stupid shit that I can’t do anything about. And yeah, it feels good to get it out but it doesn’t accomplish anything. I’ll be positive instead. I have no idea what I’ll write about but that never stopped me before.
Just one thing, today was my last day of working reduced hours (9-hour days) under a doctor’s supervision. And the last day that I can (with a clear conscience) park in the reserved spaces in the parking lot at work. So I’ll be partying like mad until 8pm when I should probly go to bed so that I can get up at… Oh wait, no ranting!
I am totally baffled at the fact that tomorrow puts us into September. I’m trying to be positive and I love September but I miss June and July and August something fierce. But I love to smell the crisp fresh Fall air and seeing the Autumn skies which take my breath away this time of year.
I always get thoughtful and introspective this time of year, too. I’ll think back over times past and look forward to slowing down a bit- that is until the holiday rush starts and then there are other things to look forward to. But Fall is special. Sometimes it feels good to put warm, fuzzy socks on and a sweatshirt and jeans. To quit worrying about your tan fading. I will find myself more than once curled up on my porch swing with a blanket and a cup of hot coffee. It’s nice to actually sit in the house at night with the lights on, too, something that we rarely do all Summer.
I’m consciously blocking out a lot of things like having to crawl out of a nice warm bed, to have to warm the car up in the morning, to pay high gas bills, to step out of the shower and dry off your goosebumps and even worse… to scrape ice off your windshield, to have to wear hats that flatten your hair… Oh wait, I didn’t just write all that.
Fall food is good too. Pumpkin. Chili. Homemade vegetable soup. All that good hot stuff that you didn’t cook all Summer to keep from overheating the kitchen.
Ok. This is all the positive you’re going to get from me today. I’m all happied out. It’s Monday, what did you expect?
Have a good one.
