But today, I’m also in search of silver linings, if you happen to have any in sight. Mine? Wimbledon Week 2 is here! And that helps everything, even though I missed last week’s incredible 11-hour match with its extraordinary 70-68 fifth set!
So here is my contribution to Monday morning moaning and groaning. And then let ‘er rip! This is a free zone. Everything is fair game – no complaint too small!
So what’s driving you crazy??
Whining and dining
What have I got to bitch about? (Oh, there’s always something, isn’t there?)
- I haven’t seen any Wimbledon! Last week was so busy and all-about-kid that I missed the record-breaking John Isner win, and the Queen’s first visit in 33 years. And everything else!
- I need Andy Roddick, with or without shirt! How could I have missed my Andy Roddick fix?? And Clijsters or Henin? Who do I root for? (Pretty lame as complaints go, I know.)
- I am seriously sleep deprived (Okay. Legitimate complaint.) Nights and nights and nights. Brain function has been reduced to irritable blips. Patience is nil.
- There’s no food in my fridge! (Does Five Guys deliver, avec peanuts?)
- Every muscle in my body hurts after a weekend trip of planes, trains, and bumpy shuttle buses. Serious stair climbing (college dorms, university tour) offered a special bonus for my beleaguered back and limbs. I am in bed. Movement is unlikely for awhile. . .
Now my silver lining
Silver linings abound (also known as perspective).
- The weekend was tiring but went smoothly. Flights were delayed but the universe gave back in entertaining fellow travelers. I’m home! And honestly? In a great mood (and really no complaints).
- I will have THIS week to enjoy Wimbledon 2010! (I’m immobile anyway.) May all wardrobe malfunctions please occur in the next days. . . and some fantastic play!
- I have half a tuna sub in the fridge and it isn’t moldy. Hell – I can live on that for two days! And I have coffee, Motrin, coffee. It sounds like a plan to me.
- My kids are doing great. And when that’s the case, I’m happy. What’s not to love about that?
Your turn – what’s bugging you? And is there a possible silver lining?
