I’ve been reading blogs for over a year now, and can relate to one thing- bloggers will tell you the great things about their day. Sure, we might share one or two things that might have dampened our day, but for the most part, our blogs are upbeat and cheery. This isn’t so you think we live perfect lives, or at least that’s not why I do it. Instead, I do it so I can cherish and remember those happy moments and days, because that is what I focus on in life. I don’t want to dwell in the negative, and be stressed about things that are in the past.
However, with that being said, let’s back up to how my weekend wasn’t so marvelous.
I had a breakdown on Saturday with my mom over all the stress coming at me in the next few months. I feel like I am a burden to everyone with wedding planning, so I have done it all myself, or with my mom’s help. I know people are more than happy to help me, but I am not the type of person to ask for help. The whole house hunting thing is stressing me out TO THE MAX, and I am completely over it. I don’t even care where we end up at this point, because it is just adding to the stress. My wedding to-do list should be dwindling, but it really isn’t. Thankfully, my mom made me feel better, mostly from listening to me, and after I told Aaron all of this, he finished up the registry for Sears (that’s his registry with tool related things on it) and came over to help me with some things on my to-do list.
- My Sunday run and my attempt at a run yesterday were both terrible. I hated that it hurt so bad and that I didn’t get to enjoy the warm weather and enjoy my run at the same time.
- This whole kitchen remodeling is terrible. It takes me at least an extra 10 minutes to find things, and Monday morning was especially bad. I start every morning with 2 cups of Green Tea. One in a mug that I can drink when I get to work, and the other for a little while later because it stays warmer longer. Well, the hot pot wouldn’t work. Then I tried the microwave because I was running out of time. OH, that didn’t work either. (We moved the toaster oven, microwave, and hot pot to the dining room!). My mom turned the circuit back on, the microwave worked for 30 seconds, and then shut off. So, I had semi warm tea. Great. I know the end result will be fantastic, though!
- I hardly got any sleep on Sunday night because I didn’t have a job for Monday, and I was incredibly hot. I even wore shorts and a t shirt to sleep, and just felt uncomfortably hot all night. So, I was up every hour, and then from 5 on. It was a great start to a Monday morning.
Am I telling you this to complain to you? No. I am saying it to remind everyone that bloggers have their ups and downs, and I am no exception. I know we need these bad days to remind us of the good in our life, but I would much rather not tell you all about them! I’d rather tell you happy, and cheerful things, with maybe something upsetting that happened in it as well, but not solely focused on me complaining.
Do any other bloggers feel this way? Is there something you have on your mind that you want to share? Do you have bad days sometime and keep them to yourself rather than blog about them?
