I am in such a BAD mood, I think this post is just what I needed. My experience right now is the opposite though. I was in a terrific mood on Saturday. We got a couple of inches of lovely snow. The heavy wet kind that really causes no problems and makes everything clean and bright. The temperatures were so warm that we were able to spend the better part of the morning outdoors in the snow. Last night a different mood struck. Grumpy, tired, like the sun will never shine again. It's conferences week here, which means two late nights of work for the Hubs and I and figuring out different arrangements for our kids. If I can just hold on, we get to stay home on Friday as a reward for surviving the week. But this morning, staring down this long week, I felt nothing but negative. I'm trying really hard to shake the bad mood, but it feels really stuck at this point!

I was in a real funk this weekend, too, so don't feel bad. The post was a pep-talk to myself! I know what you mean--when we have long, rough weeks I try and look ahead to when we're free and clear from the juggling, and work deadlines, etc. It'll happen--hang in there!
