Friday Feel Good...

I've noticed that a lot of bloggers have "theme" days and that a lot of other bloggers connect with them on these days. A lot of them have to do with fashion, which I am not nearly as stylish and cute as all of them so I've decided to take a different route and hope to find some people who will connect on my "theme".

My "theme" is Friday Feel Good. I am going to vent about all of the things that made me grumpy, sad, overwhelmed, mad, frustrated, etc. throughout the week. I want to clear it all out of my head and heart and enjoy my weekend with my husband, girls, rest of the family and friends. I want to relax, people. I need to relax!

So, get ready. I'm letting it all out...

1. Safeway had Coca Cola products on sale and an additional coupon in their weekly flyer but what was the onlyCoke product that was empty on their shelves and end caps in not just one, but two of their stores?! COKE ZERO! I am a loyal shopper of both Safeway and Coke Zero. In my opinion, they should just set aside a whole pallet of it and mark it as "sold" with my name all over it.

2. I am over arguing with girls 10 years old and younger. Why is it that I can't be the adult in this situation?! Why can't I let them have the last sassy word and move on?! Because I am a sassy girl myself, that's why! Am I proud of it? No, and I am trying to work on it but sometimes I just want to come back at them and say, "I am rubber and you're glue and whatever you say bounces off of me and sticks to you!".

3. Laundry! It never stops!!! Four people in this house and we are active. So, that means there are usually our presentable clothes for the functioning part of our days and then our athletic gear for workouts and sports. I'm thinking we should just raise our kids from birth in leaves to cover private areas and not even let them know what clothes are. You don't have to wash leaves, you just replace them with ones in your own backyard. Just think of the time and money saved with this concept!

4. Physicians who ban the use of cell phones in their waiting rooms!!! Really?! You're going to leave me waiting over an hour for an appointment with magazines that are of no interest to me?! Or if there is a People magazine it still has Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt as a happily married couple on the front?! And then tell me that I can't play a game, surf the web or check my Facebook account?! Really?!!!! 

5. PMS! Women's bodies already feel awful during this monthly physical process. Do we really need the emotional roller coaster ride that goes with it?! Why weren't we cut a break on this one?! Yes, the intelligent side of my brain tells me that it is all connected but the irrational side of my brain with PMS wants a different answer! NOW!!!

6. Mother Nature! I didn't choose to live in an area with this much rain and grey days that go along with it. I chose to live in area with mostly sunny days with beautiful views of the water surrounding us. I can't see those beautiful views through the fog, heavy rain and pessimism.

Whew! I could feel my mood lifting with each word I typed. I am feeling so much better. I guess this is why so many therapists prescribe writing your feelings down in a journal. It feels good to purge and let go! 

Okay, I'm off to enjoy my weekend. Please feel free to vent your negative feelings here and then GO ENJOY YOUR WEEKEND :-)

I like your leaf idea. I had been thinking of disposable clothes, but leaves would be even easier.

Ok, seriously, there are two adults and two babies in my house. And none of us are all that active. So... I'm trying to figure out what our excuse for having so much laundry is, and I can't. I hate laundry too!! It wouldn't be so bad if I just had to do it like once a week, but what's with this three-or-four-times-a-week business??

Laundry seems to be the #1 on my vent list. My friends that commented verbally agree with my leaf idea too.
Thanks for stopping by Sme, Shell & Naomi!

I'm happy you all liked my Friday Feel Good. I'm looking forward to getting it all out tomorrow. It actually starts lifting my mood just thinking about what I am going to put on my vent list. I know that once it is out in cyberspace that I will be all smiles again!
