There are no words.
Yet, I’m the one who chose to start a blog, so I’ll try to find some.
I AM FRUSTRATED !
(screamy yelling CAPS frustrated).
But, I can’t actually scream because you need a voice to do that, and I sound like kermit the frog after a carton of cigarettes. I have been sick for five solid days now. Remember Ms. Optimistic from earlier this week, well I crushed her. With a sinus and an ear infection. Yep, you read right. The strange stuffiness and congestion I started experiencing on Wednesday decided to go full-blown sinus infection on me. And just for kicks, my ear decided to join the party. In fact, every word, every noise I heard Thursday morning echoed in my ear drum over and over and over again. Which was actually better than how it feels now.
Ever been on a plane and the pressure builds in your ear until it actually, finally, god blessedly pops. Well, the pressure has been there for roughly 10 hours now and still no sign of release. Folks, I think she’s going to blow…..any minute now….any minute now.
Have I mentioned having a sinus and ear infection on just the right side does wonders for your equilibrium. I’ve only bashed my shin two times today, once by actually opening the car door into it. Who does that?! One of my injuries has already turned into a scab, while the other is sure to become a large dark bruise, so there goes skirts and shorts because nothing says sexy like scabby legs.
I’m sorry for the rage. Really, I am, but I much prefer anger to sadness. I’m not the weepy type unless it’s a TV show or a marathon or a song. But, when it comes to events happening in my actual life, I don’t break down and cry. Nope, instead I get pissed, and sometimes I even yell. Loudly….into pillows so the Hubby doesn’t get alarmed.
Most times, I try to deal with my frustrations in a healthy way. I usually channel my annoyances, my petty grievances, and my rage into my workouts. It’s an amazingly effective technique to blow off steam. Usually by the end of the workout, I’ve completely released and gotten past what was bothering me in the first place. Sadly, I haven’t worked out in seven days now, and I have been feeling pretty freaking lousy for five, so I’m beyond frustrated at this point. I need a way to channel my frustrations without over exerting myself.
If you made it this far into my post, thanks for listening. And please feel free to give me some pointers. I could use the help. I promise to return to my happy place soon where butterflies and wild unicorns roam freely amid the fruits, veggies, free weights and designer shoes at affordable prices.
So, how do you blow off steam? And, where’s your happy place? Are fabulous shoes there too?
