This morning I woke up, fed Juniper, checked my email and put on the kettle for coffee. I was in good spirits as I finished up my most recent article and straightened up the living room. But by noon, my mood had plummeted. While I washed some dishes, I watched a fedex man across the street place a box on someone’s front door and suddenly wanted to cry. It sounds dramatic, but there I was — in the WORST mood, wanting to crawl back into bed. So, in an effort to make myself feel better, I tried to think of the funny cat video I saw on youtube the other day, then I went onto Buzzfeed hoping there’d be an inappropriate article to make me laugh. I was literally thinking, quick quick quick — something, cheer me up! I hate bad moods.
Friends, what do you do when you’re falling into a crappy mood? Do you have a go-to pick me up? Something that always makes you laugh? I’d love to hear. (Please don’t tell me to go for a run!) The bottom line is — I’m ready for spring.
