Willing a Good Day

Today is going to be a good day.  Today is going to be a good day.  Today is going to be a good day.  Today is going to be a good day.

I will make this day a good day.  I’ve been sick with a terrible cold for a week, I haven’t gotten enough sleep and haven’t made it to the gym yet this week…all these things make for a crabby Julie.  When I am crabby, the small things that I would normally dust off myself pile up.  Today I am letting it all go and willing myself into having a good day.  It hasn’t been easy though.  I stopped at Starbucks on my way to work this morning and became was annoyed by the woman with over processed hair who took 4 minutes and 17 seconds to fix her coffee this morning.  Normally I wouldn’t care but she spread her pursue, car keys, bagel and herself all over the coffee fixing station (not sure what to call it) s no one else could fit.  All the while she bragged about her lineage to a man sitting at a nearby table.  I normally wouldn’t care about this or even listen to what she was saying but her lineage included several generation all haling from Burlington.  That’s your claim to fame?  That your family has eaten at the Dandelion Green for generations?  Just finish fixing your coffee lady so I can get to work.

Work.  Ech.  I wanted to take today off so I could extend the 4th of July three day weekend into a nice little 4 day weekend but no such luck.  Reasonably, everyone who works where I work cannot have the day off.  There were two of us who were on the fence about the day and I conceded. The other person looking to take the day is a nut and generally a jerk so I figure he needs that day more than I do.  Plus my boss will be off and most others too so I’ll just have a nice quiet day.  So off to work I go but when I arrive, the jerk is here too.  That is annoying.  It would be less annoying if he didn’t sit right next to me.  I could have been home lounging around in my hammock or still be in bed or anywhere else for that matter but no, I came to work so the jerk could have the day off, yet the jerk has come to work.  (That rhymes and made me giggle)   It’s only 8AM and I’m annoyed but determined to let it all go.   These little things can’t bring me down.  I’ve got some things to get done.  So over processed hair lady, just make room for someone else and jerk, go home so I don’t have to look at you all day.

Today is going to be a good day.  Today is going to be a good day.  Today is going to be a good day.  Today is going to be a good day.
