After a week of rolling around in crabby city, I woke up in a great mood.
How can I tell? (So glad you asked!)
I started singing right out of bed.
I hugged the cats that were foolish enough to stick around after I started my “a cappella” version of a Christmas carol.
I danced into my closet.
It was very much appreciated. I have things to do and accomplish and it’s always better when I’m not grumpy.
Friends are coming over tonight and I am going to serve sangria. For my recipe, I should have put the fruit in yesterday but a few hours today will work.
This is one of the easiest groups to entertain. Everyone is bringing their own takeout food. I am providing the sangria and everyone is bringing their best holiday spirit. (Damn well better!)
I wish there was a way to pull this mood change out of the hat when needed. Sometimes I can do that by playing fun music (like a little James Brown in the car!). Sometimes I can by being silly.
But sometimes I just can’t get it going. Maybe my battery is dead and the charger can’t be found. (Probably under the refrigerator with all the catnip toys.)
In any case, today I am going to enjoy it and get as much accomplished as possible.
I have to go, my cats are asking for another song. Here is one of my favorite groups. Music starts at 30.
