Insufferable But All Right

Tuesday, October 18, 2016

First, let me say thanks to all my friends who commented on my last blog that was probably a pretty annoying whine. I'd been sitting on those feelings for awhile, so when I let them out, they were very agitated, and they agitated me.

I had a wonderful actual birthday. I didn't get to do anything super-special, but I had some friends over for pizza, cookie cake and games, but games didn't happen, because we sat around talking until close to midnight. That was nice.

But the really good parts came earlier. My husband was offered a promotion for which he'd interviewed on Thursday, and my sister's boyfriend proposed! WOW!

So life has its ups and its downs. Of course. You grown ups don't need to be told that. I, as a grown up, should be able to recognize that even in the throes of a childish tantrum, but no one's perfect. =)

    Don't be too hard on yourself, our inner child just needs to have their hissy fit from time to time. emoticon

    Happy to hear you had a wonderful actual birthday. Life DOES have its ups and downs. Sometimes they can feel a bit extreme though and a good whine does us good. I say better to get it off our chest than to bottle things up inside.

    Congratulations to both your husband and your sister. Exciting news!
