I had, overall, a pretty good weekend. Saturday we trimmed trees and had a failed birdfeeder attempt (it was poorly constructed and will be returned soon). We picked up birthday treats and hung out with friends, ate pizza, watched Hallowe’en specials, and traumatized people who had never seen “God of Cookery”. Got home about midnight to a party down the street. Thankfully it did not keep me up, although hubby was displeased.
Sunday I was off all day- I’m not used to late hours anymore. Factor in cramps and just general fogginess and it was a odd day. By 7 pm we’d only had one group of four kids come to the door. Then, the first wave arrived. And the second. Candy gave out middle of the third wave- I’m lucky we didn’t get egged. Apparently we live on a major trick-or-treating route for our area. This makes me *very* happy and I will be better prepared next year.
Other, annoying things happened this weekend. I’m not going to go over them here because, honestly, I just have to let them go. I was hypersensitive and cranky and I hate feeling like that. I know it’s not how I normally am, but it’s so hard to break out of a mood when it’s happening. Beating myself up about it isn’t going to change anything, so I’m practising letting go. I need to forgive myself more often. Not only am I only human, but I have a few extenuating circumstances that I need to learn to make allowances for. If I screw up, apologise, fix it, forgive myself and move on.
That said, I am aiming for a fresh slate this week. There is some doctor angst going on that I am also trying to not beat myself up over. The next 2-3 days will be dealing with that, some housework that didn’t get done, and the usual post-Hallowe’en letdown (although I did not go all-out this year, so it shouldn’t be too bad). My goal is for this week to be better than last week.
