In That Case The Dog Is Tucked Up In A Bedroom, THEN I Answer The Door

December 27, 2019

It’s funny how one can discover one’s limits.  For instance, I have no problem scooping up a wiggling and yapping little dog and tucking her under one arm when I answer the door.  But as I discovered yesterday, I will not answer the door like that when said dog has been dressed in a ballerina outfit by the girls.

Years Of People Attempting To Force Feed You Something Can Have That Effect

For good or for ill, recently I’ve realized that while I will still always make time to hear grievances, I just can’t stomach any more griping.

How Bad Was Yesterday For Me? This Bad:

I have alerted my household that if anyone needs my help with something they can’t do for themselves, I will help them as part of the process of teaching them how to do it for themselves.  In all other matters though . . .

Until further notice, I’m on strike, so even if you won’t excuse me, I’m off to play games, watch videos, and otherwise do absolutely nothing that I don’t want to do.

And Then It All Made Sense

One of the things I particularly have to watch out for is falling into the fallacious belief that something won’t effect me.  (By that I mean things like other people’s moods or shifts in environmental conditions still within human tolerance, not things like gravity or flying bullets.)  Over the years I’ve gotten better at not making that mistake (Because there’s nothing quite like parenthood to teach you about your limits.), but I still fall into the trap from time to time.

Case in point, today I spent too much time trying to figure why I was having so much difficulty focusing.  Granted last week took a lot out of me, and this week promises to be just as draining, but I didn’t feel bad, just indefinably . . . off.

Then I realized that today is one of those days that isn’t gray enough to be depressing, but neither is it bright enough to perk you up either.
