It's 84° and sunny today in Charlotte, North Carolina. It's the kids' first day of summer vacation, the neighborhood pool is open -- and I am feeling very out of sync with this beautiful day because I have a nasty out-of-season cold. My throat hurts, I can barely speak, and I'm coughing up yucky yellow slimey stuff. The injustice of it all! This isn't January; it's the middle of JUNE!
As a matter of fact, today I feel as lousy as my office looks:
Depressing, isn't it? This photo doesn't even do my mess justice, because my desk is hiding all of the piles of paperwork and memo samples stacked on the floor around my chair. I have to leap over the piles to get to my chair, which is difficult to do with an 80-lb. golden retriever sitting on my chest and my ears packed with sawdust.
While I'm on this Positive Attitude kick, let me also share that I'm out of skim milk so I can't make a latte, my shoulder and my back hurt, and my nose is sore. I'm pretty sure a pimple is brewing below the surface near my right eyebrow. And, despite how grouchy and miserable I'm feeling, I can't lie down and rest all day because I have work to get done on two different clients' projects, so I have to go feel miserable in my pigsty of an office at least until that's done.
