I had such a rough night that I'm tempted to swear, except I try not to. My back was hurting so bad that I got out of bed and got into the recliner with the heating pad. This normally will take the edge off things to the point that I can sleep and might have worked if not for a little kitty who wanted treats and kept whining and patting me on the arm trying to get treats. I woke up to a bad storm... which sort of explains the back pain that woke me up. Bad weather = arthritis flare = muscle spasms + pain = grumpy Monday.
Seriously, I very nearly just got up, took another ambien with a nyquil chaser and made this a "sleep it away Monday". Instead, I poured me a big cup of coffee... cuddled up with the Oscar dog and decided to try to find some Reasons to Love Monday. Help me Jesus.
10. Ten years ago yesterday I started working for State Farm. Other than my unintentional sabbatical this year, it's been my career, my identity. It wasn't what I "wanted to be when I grew up" but it's been a good way to make a living and even though it's going to hurt.... even though it's gonna be a struggle... getting to get up and go to a job I love is a HUGE Reason to Love Monday.
