... for me, this time, not FROM me.
I've been in a bit of a funk lately. I'm not sure exactly why. Oh, I'm sure I could come up with a number of possibilities, if I stopped to think about it. But I don't want to think about it. I just want to feel happy again. Or, at least, slightly less irritated with the world in general.
A good start would probably be to stop watching "House Hunters International." Y'all ever watched this show? It will make you want to rip your hair out. It typically features a poorly dressed American couple (frequently the sort of people who put little hats and sweaters on their dogs - seriously, who does that?) who are unhappy in Seattle/Los Angeles/New York/Miami, so they're looking for a summer home - not a new home, but a SECOND home - in a more exotic locale - Mexico, Australia, the Mediterranean. And the typical budget is between $750,000 and $3,000,000. Shows like this make me think that the economy simply isn't bad enough yet.
Of course, I think the same thing when I see teenagers driving BMWs.
I digress. It's not just TV or dog sweaters or spoiled teenagers. It's ... everything. And nothing. I just don't feel like myself lately.
And so I ask you, gentle readers: what do you do when you've had a bad week or two? What do you do to snap out of it or to try to refocus your brain? What are one or two things that always cheer you up?
