Welcome to the fifth edition of Transparent Tuesday. We remove the rosy filters from social media to reveal the pretty unglamorous parts of life. Want to participate? Tag #transparenttuesday and leave your link in the comments!
This basically has been today:
I woke up, and put my crankypants on. Actually, I didn't put on any pants. I'm still sitting in my pajama shorts that I slept in. It's just been that kind of day. Energy off, feeling anti-social, and just generally grumpy. I guess the good part is that I recognize that I'm grumpy, and have tried to temper that with any interactions I've had today.
A few other random tidbits for today:
- I didn't want to face the “Nacho car” (it's literally part of an old car, with nacho fixings in it) at book club tonight so was wavering not to go. Then I had a meeting rescheduled for this evening, so it got me out of the Nacho situation. I have been doing REALLY good on my eating and didn't want my crankypants mood to cause me to be reckless.
- I plan on plopping down in front of the TV for a good 2 hours of The Voice tonight. I fully admit that some of the stories make me cry.
- Speaking of crying, saw Philomena this weekend. It was an EXCELLENT film, but I cried for the last 15 minutes or so. What the heck is wrong with me? I'm not normally a sobby type.
- My mother-in-law broke her hip this weekend (she's recovering and will be fine) but when I heard she was at the hospital my mom passed away in, couldn't face it so I haven't gone to see her. I'll see her when she goes to the rehab facility. My husband said it's totally fine (I would have gone if it was really important to him), but I still feel horrible about it.
