Stealing my joy

I know I said I'd post a recipe next but life has had other ideas. I've had a pretty great week & the past few days have been throwing stuff to try to steal my joy. It's like for every good that happens something bad has to happen. Wednesday, I found out we get to keep volunteering, which was like jump for joy awesomeness. Same day, I lost my wedding band. I take it off at the gym when it starts to dig into my hand & put it in my pants waistband pocket or my water bottle if I don't have a pocket. (As of this writing I still have not located it & it's looking like a replacement will be a bit difficult as they've discontinued the comfort fit band that I love so much.) And you know, I'm disappointed, but not down. Then Rob & I had a LOVELY day out on Saturday.Relaxed walk in the Proctor District, doughnuts at Legendary Doughnuts 🤤😍
& then that evening Ivy has an accident. Don't get me wrong, I'm extremely thankful that she wasn't hurt & Lord knows that the damage could've been much worse or others could have been involved, but it still royally sucks. I get why she got nervous & wish I could tell all cops please don't use intimidation techniques on the road. Don't follow closely, especially a night. She knew she wasn't doing anything wrong, but it still made her so nervous that she took the turn into our neighborhood too wide & took out a large rock & tore up the front passenger bumper, undercarriage, rim & who knows what else. I have been the one being followed in the past & it scared me. A single female alone a night, even if it's a cop car, it is intimidating to be followed. She's upset with herself b/c she knows she should have pulled over until she was calm rather than keep driving. But it's easy to know & much more difficult to do. So today, I'm indulging in a funk.
kitty snuggles & bunny ears ftw
I am so thankful for my supportive family who support me & comfort me. I spent the day in my pjs not counting calories, not exercising, not doing a darn thing but vegging out & watching the boobtube & stuffing my face. And you know what? I feel better. Not physically. Physically I feel like crap - b/c of eating junk food & sitting on my butt all day, but emotionally I feel better & am ready to get up tomorrow & hit the gym & take the car to the shop. Sometimes just need to remember to "Always look on the bright side of life."
