I have been a little moody/bitchy since Sunday. This is not normally me. I realize that a great deal of why I am feeling so crappy is that I have not had any time off since June that did not involve my mother. I tried to get a couple of weeks leave without pay in September but the powers that be said no. I still have some vacation days left so I have asked for next week off. If I don’t get it, I am going to be very upset.
So, in the meantime, I have decided that if I focus on some positive things my outlook may be different. Here is the list:
- I am grateful for my wife. I am a fortunate woman because I get to share my life with someone who loves me fiercely. We support each other and laugh so much.
- I am grateful for our dogs. Without dogs, I would just merely exist rather than live. They make me smile and laugh every single day.
- Music and the amazing dock in my office. I also have really good speakers in my car.
- The NHL Lockout
- CBC Radio One
- The end of the US campaign!
