blah blah BLAH!

Oh, how my life sucks. Let me count the ways!

1. Work.
2. School.
3. Chores.
4. Bills.
5. Traffic.
6. Cramps.
7. Bad moods.
8. Depression.
9. My radio is all staticy, fuzzy sounding and it's pissing me off.
10. How the hell do you spell static -y? I can say but apparently cannot spell it.

I could go on but I think I've covered the major categories. Life sure is overwhelming sometimes, eh?

Well... we now interrupt this pity party for an annoucement: at least two things are going well today! My hair looks absolutely amazing pretty good and my husband is the most stellar human being on the planet. Those two things should be enough to shake me out of this foul mood and they have, but only mometarily. I am in battle mode: between feeling like crap and feeling incredibly lucky. So, in the interest of kicking myself in the ass, here is a list of what I can do to make a difference in someone's life (mine):

Work can be changed - I can adjust my attitude and make it a fun place to work. Or I can find a new job.

School is just school. It's not like I have any control over the class schedule that is offered. I'll have to deal with it and just go when I can go and take what I can get. If I never finish, I am still a good person. And I am reasonably smart, so I am sure that counts for something.

Chores will get done. Eventually. The house looks great but my laundry is stacked high. It'll get done when it gets done.

Ditto for paying bills.

There are measures within my control to deal with traffic, cramps, and depression. As for the radio, I can turn it off and listen to the voices in my head for entertainment.

So, you see? All is not hopeless. The choices may be limited, but I do have choices.

Why don't I feel better yet? Hope your Tuesday is better than mine.

Which brings me to the question. Can static be a verb???

Ouch. Hope the week picks up a bit.

Try keeping track of the positive things that happen in your life over the next two weeks. Somebody smiled, you kept your cool instead of losing it, your kid gave you a hug without you pleading for it, etc...

Write them down - it should help improve your mood.

Or ... you can just buy a big bag of chocolates and indulge :-)

Chocolate is derived from cocoa beans. Bean is a vegetable. Sugar is derived from either sugar CANE or sugar BEETS. Both are a plant, which places them in the vegetable category. Thus, chocolate is a vegetable.

To go one step further, chocolate candy bars also contain milk, which is dairy. So candy bars are a health food.

Chocolate-covered raisins, cherries, orange slices and strawberries all count as fruit, so eat as many as you want.

If you've got melted chocolate all over your hands, you're eating it too slowly.

The problem: How to get 2 pounds of chocolate home from the store in a hot car. The solution: Eat it in the parking lot.

Diet tip: Eat a chocolate bar before each meal. It'll take the edge off your appetite, and you'll eat less.

If calories are an issue, store your chocolate on top of the fridge. Calories are afraid of heights, and they will jump out of the chocolate to protect themselves.

Chocolate has many preservatives. Preservatives make you look younger. Therefore, you need to eat more chocolate.

Put "eat chocolate" at the top of your list of things to do today. That way, at least you'll get one thing done.

A nice box of chocolates can provide your total daily intake of calories in one place. Now, isn't that handy?

If you can't eat all your chocolate, it will keep in the freezer. But if you can't eat all your chocolate, what's wrong with you?

And remember: "Stressed" spelled backward is "desserts".
