Tough Day

I had one of those days yesterday where I felt off right away and it continued and escalated throughout the day. I ended my work day fuming and it seemed like nothing was clipping along smoothly and was just getting in my way deliberately.

Of course my rational mind is saying that no, it isn't all about me, it is just one of those days where I am not totally in control of all the moving parts and I just don't like that feeling so I instinctively want to quit and get on a plane and go away somewhere to decompress.

I am happy to say I don't get too many days like yesterday anymore. A large part due to prioritizing our finances thus decreasing our need to rely on every single penny of our income to live. I also find forcing myself to focus and taking a step towards a goal grounds me during an emotional time -- so I got rid of another pile of papers.


  1. Argh! I hate days like that, but I'm glad to hear you're feeling better!

  2. Sorry you had a bad day. Did you have a better day today?

  3. Hi Northern Living Allowance & Sandra!

    Thanks for your support! I am feeling better -- not even totally sure what triggered it -- luckily I'm not into pity parties... :)

    If I were a Dr (which I'm not!) I'd say it's a mild touch of the 'post travel blues' setting in.

    After the highs of a great trip to return to a regular routine (until the next adventure) always seems to create an off day or two. At least this has been my observation over past travel experiences.

    Be thankful it's short lived. Have a great Easter weekend... the weather is going to be phenomenal.

  5. @ I'd rather be sailing -- I believe you are highly accurate on this one -- hadn't dawned on me!

    Have a great Easter yourself! It is supposed to be a blast of summer.
