One of Those Days
We never even bothered to change out of our pajamas this morning.
The same old toys are loosing their luster.
The same old books, same old activities, same old routines…same, same, same…
We’re slowly stagnating today.
The diagnosis: Acute Cabin Fever.
The treatment: We’ve got to get out from within these four walls, breathe in fresh air and bask in sunlight.
The view from our windows is dreary, uninspiring.
A brittle beige lawn, dotted with mud puddles, littered with downed branches and half-decayed leaves.
The damp, heavy, dingy gray blanket of a sky looms overhead, appearing so uncompromisingly, unwelcomingly cold.
I’d rather stay holed up here in our apartment. The walls may be closing in on us, but at least we’re warm and dry.
And bored. Mind-numbingly, unbearably bored.
Tomorrow we’ll rediscover our sense of adventure.
Tomorrow we’ll escape these four walls.
Tomorrow will be a better day.
Today…well, today has just been one of those days.
What do you do to improve your attitude when you’re having “one of those days?”
