Yesterday was a really crappy day.
Not only did I infuriate myself by eating that muffin, but I also went apeshit on the clerks down at Troy City Hall. You see, good old Troy decided to go ahead and install parking meters in very hidden places and then leave the old "2 Hour Parking" signs right where they've always been. A little misleading, eh? I had no idea the meters were there and parked in my usual spot. Someone came in and told me that my truck was overloaded with tickets, and sure enough it was. So, I closed the shop and went down to City Hall (which just so happens to be in the same building as my old Verizon office, so you can imagine how badly my skin was crawling) and went totally berserk. I probably should have calmed down before entering the building, but, as I mentioned, yesterday was a crappy day so whatever.
::just as a side note here, it just dawned on me that I'm posting a lot about going crazy on people lately, and I don't want anyone to think I'm a total lunatic here. I just fly off the handle quickly. I'm working on it.::
Anyway, I was told to "get used to it", and the fact that customers have to pay to shop in our stores and employees and owners of said stores have to close their shops up to pay the meters or move their cars every hour or two, is part of "the NEW Troy". Makes you want to come right down here to shop, doesn't it? I'm fed up. I'm also not renewing my lease when it's up early next year. More on that soon.
So, I've moved on to a new day. I'm parking in the next town over which gives me the opportunity to get some exercise in the morning. It's a brisk walk over a bridge with gorgeous scenery, so things could be worse. I'm not allowing myself to think about what I'm going to do in the winter...just enjoying the new routine as much as I can. I'm trying to think positively about life as of late. I've had a few realizations that have changed my outlook on things, and I'm trying to savor them before my mood sours again. I've also decided to up my exercise intake in addition to the morning walk because I think this will help to pull me out of my slump and maybe make me not hate myself so much the next time I indulge in a chocolate muffin. God those things are fantastic.
I'm sorry for being such a crab here lately. I hope you guys don't blow me off for not being all roses and daisies all the time. There are an awful lot of those perky, happy, cheery blogs out there and I wonder how these women live lives like that day in and day out. Life isn't all roses and daisies all the time and bad days happen. Thank you for sticking with me through times like these. Things are looking up and big changes are ahead!
