Everything feels off. You are cranky and the crazy in the world seems to be following you around everywhere you go. You glance at the sky to see if it is a full moon, you read your horoscope, sure that it will tell you should have stayed in bed. You get that feeling in your belly, a tightness in your chest and that half a headache that just won't go away. You feel like you are running and running and then realize, yeah you have been running- just in circles. Days when no amount of coffee seem to perk you up and all you want to do is hide from the world. Yeah, been one of those days. The type of day when everything that could go wrong, does. The days when a normally punctual you is late for everything, including getting up on time and out the door. Days where the coffee shop screws up the same order you have gotten for the past 5 years and where everyone on the road decided overnight that NASCAR moved the races to the highway and you are now in the Sprint Cup whether you wanted to be or not. You get cut off left and right, always seeming to have some guy riding your bumper. Yeah, been one of those days.
See it all started as a bad hair day and went to hell from there. I should have known what kinda day it would be really. Raining for the 3 day in a row, totaling over 7 inches of rain since Saturday.. ahh hell make that 4 days.. See, its one of those days when I don't even know what day of the week it is. Sigh. I think everyone I came into contact today was off, crazy or just simply weird. I realized around 3pm that it really wasn't just me. Everyone was cranky, touchy and a pain in my ass. Ok, so I may be generalizing here a bit, but you get my meaning right? For no particular reason either. I slept good last night, did not have anything major pressing today, aside from the stress of a life situation I have going on, nothing to make me particularly bitchy today... but alas, I am. Locked into bitch mode and absolutely no justification for it.
Thing is- it happens. You have off days. Its not the end of the world. Well, it could be for someone that pisses me off. Just kidding. Sort of. But I mean really, you are allowed to have one of those days once in a while. Its called being human. Days when the last thing you want to do is deal with any sort of crisis, ignorant person, well to be honest people in general. Days when you want to get home as fast as you can, get into comfy clothes and just be. I am normally not a negative person, but on days like today, I have learned not to fight it. I do what needs to be done and I head to the one place that never fails to soothe me. Home. I read a book and get lost in a story. I write. I create pictures and posters for my Facebook page or a zone out and watch TV. Anything to shut my brain off and get back to being Jenn. I am not going to sweat it. It happens. I have learned throughout my life that you need to listen to that little voice inside your head. If is telling you the world has gone mad and that you need to go home and hide from the craziness, than do it.
Tomorrow is a new day. Let's hope my hair behaves..
