Mad, Sad or Glad

Posted on January 5, 2020 at 5:15 PM

Grumpy. Eyes rolled. No smile.

THIS was my face when Ben suggested we take our daily walk today. I was not in the mood. Just a bit tired, grumpy and to be honest, feeling overwhelmed today.


Hubs: Wanna walk now?

Me: No. (insert face)...Definitely no.

Hubs: *says nothing*

Hubs: *says nothing*

Me: *fine* but let's go RIGHT now... (insert dramatic sigh).


So we went. He tried to chat with me but I was not having it. I even grumbled, 'I just want to walk in quiet'. That's right.

Quiet so I can mutter in my mind 'stupid walk. stupid husband. stupid snow.'


I want to tell you that the walk 'fixed it all'. It did not.

BUT a small glimmer of a smile is now with me (an hour later)...a small goal was achieved. And even though I did NOT want to.. I did it.


I'm reminded of my mom's phrase... when there was a job to do that we had to do she would say, 'Well it has to get done. You choose if you want to do it Mad, Sad or Glad'.


So, I did my walk. With Mad. Maybe a hint of Sad (definitely ZERO Glad). So, if you have a task to do that must be done... push through. You can do it.
