It's almost like I have PMS, except that I don't.Oh, there was *plenty* more bitchiness left inside of me, but I stopped there, tired of the whine in my own voice and didn't bother posting it because I saw no point in inflicting that kind of me on all of the kind yous.
I'm just overwhelmed by all of these boxes. I'm annoyed that I am not sure if I even packed my silverware because it isn't in any of those overwhelming boxes. I didn't feel safe leaving in the ice yesterday. My kitchen is smaller so that things don't fit, and I'd like to get to the store to get some hooks or shelves or something, but the temperature is still below freezing, so it's still a sheet of ice today, and I feel trapped, which means that I'm here with the damn boxes. I shouldn't spend any money anyway because I'm sure the money situation looks really icky with all those road trip meals followed by more of the same for a week since an empty apartment is limiting. I'd rather just not even know how bad the money situation is, so I won't look.
This morning I kind of roll my eyes when I look at it and am thankful that we are usually lucky enough to get another day with which to have a better, less whiny, less negative kind of day. Sometimes "problems" themselves just work out, but sometimes it's just an attitude change.
I unpacked *a lot* yesterday, and while I still have much to go, it's starting to feel like home, and it occurs to me that gratitude for all I have would be more appropriate than just hating all those
Today is mine. I'm still kind of stuck inside until tomorrow due to the ice in the parking lot, and I still have some complaints about the apartment complex, but if those are my biggest whiny ass complaints, then I've got it pretty good compared to lots of folks this season. I have a latte in hand, ideas for a few Christmas gifts in my budget that I can buy on Amazon (I'm ususally done shopping in November but haven't bought a single gift yet, yikes!), a plan for something I like for lunch and as many boxes as I feel like unpacking. Or not unpacking today. Whichever.
