Instead of making this a post about poor pitiful me, I’m going to show y’all that I seriously try to look on the positive side. Today, I’m hanging over the edge of frustration, but I take my frustrations in stride. In other words, they don’t ruin my day – much – and my world doesn’t stop spinning.
Lucky for you, I’m going to use a bunch of emoticons as well. 😀
My ear issue is still an issue. My regular ENT is on vacation 😐
I was able to see the fill-in doctor this morning 🙂
Couldn’t find my tennis shoes 🙄
Oh, so ever thankful for my Birkenstock clogs–they are always lying around for times when I can’t find any other pair of shoes. 🙂
Car was nearly out of gas 😐
Because I have been making weekly visits to the ENT, I left early due to ongoing road construction on the route I take. Since I had plenty of time, I was able to fill up with gas. 🙂
While I have a hard time comprehending that people can’t actually see the many neon orange signs along the construction route ➡ move to the right, left lane is closed ahead, I’m polite enough to let them in. 🙂 Bonus brownie points today for my community service.
While I’m polite enough to let someone in front of me, because I’m never in that much of a hurry, rude-illiterate-idiot number 2 gave me 2 options–be run off the road or let him in. 😡
There wasn’t a huge amount of traffic today. 😀
Today is another beautiful, warm, sunny day. 😀
Tis the fourth time I have been to the ENT, and I didn’t need my GPS. 😀 Well, I didn’t need it the last time either, but I had it on to satisfy the anxiety monster in me. 👿
Two hundred dollars later, and still no solution to my ear annoyance. 😡
I wore a pair of my cat socks today–a happy pair with lots of colors–made me smile. 😀
I’m trying very hard to embrace aging and all that goes with it, but I have a stinkin’ “age spot” on my face that has recently changed. 😡
New ist doctor to see–dermatologist. 😡 crap 😡
So happy that there are doctors who specialize in skin changes. 🙂 Due to my pasty white skin, and more of my foolish behavior of baking my pigment-less body in the sun, as a teen–I need this type of specialist. 🙄
And for a roll on the floor joke, my husband and I had a wonderful time with when we heard it—well, you may not find it as funny as we did, but I’m sharing anyway.
Yankees (that would be my family), are like hemorrhoids. When they come down and go back up, they’re fine. But, when they don’t, they’re a pain in the ass. (courtesy of a Rusty-Gold-Hoarder-Texan, highlighted on the show, American Pickers) 😆
….so, let’s tally it all up…..
…for 5 mads and 1 evil, I had 2 neutrals, 2 eye rolls, 10 smiles/grins, and one laugh out loud. Life is good, and even though sometimes I seem to highlight the struggles, I’m actually not that miserable.
OH! Last night, Long-Time Girlfriend of The Dooper Doo cooked dinner for us. Tonight, Sensible Girlfriend and The Wee One are cooking dinner. So let’s add a couple more grins because I didn’t have to go to the grocery store either. 😀 😀
And double OH!
Happy Cinco de Mayo!
