The way to really ruin my morning is to take away my breakfast. (And my coffee but luckily I still have that.). I gave the ultra slow Sonic by my office just one more chance to redeem themselves this morning and they were slow again. So slow in fact that they made me late to work. Late without food because I left without it. They were that slow.
So as I'm angrily driving to work (without breakfast!), I stop at a red light and I check my email (it's not a good idea but yes, I check emails and texts at red lights.) and I get this one:
I'm already freaking out about how many more Christmas gifts I need to buy and now you want me to budget myself?! Shopping is my happiness, mint - don't try and restrain me!
But of course just the thought of all the gifts I still have to buy gets me all stressed out.
Which gets me to thinking about having to split time with our families during the Holidays. I'm avoiding those conversations as long as I can but just thinking about it gets me even more stressed.
I finally get to the office (a whole 4 minutes later) and a boss who's been out of town since before the election, is there bitching about it. So now I have to listen to all political silly talk and bashing again that I was happy to have moved past last week.
I had this at home this morning.
I could still be there with her in our pj's, playing, having a grand time, probably listening to Christmas music - when we're not watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, of course.
But I have to work. Especially if I want to keep up my shopping addiction.

Don't get me wrong, I am thankful for everything I have but damn, some days just get off to a shitty start, ya know? (Literally too. My morning really started with one of our dogs pooping in the house. A rare occurrence but always a blast!)
My only consolation now is that it's still early and things can only go up from here.
Anything you want to vent about today? :D
