I‘ve been a bit grumpy this week. I admit it.
I have not been easy to live with. I have snapped and grumbled.
Growled and huffed and puffed.
I don’t know why but this week just wasn’t my favorite week.
There is no reason other than I was grumpy.
It’s been a beautiful week weather wise. Chris was home and we had some really fun time together. He went out of his way to make sure I had a good week.
So why the crabbiness?
Beats me. I let a couple little things bug me. Things that are insignificant but I allowed them to niggle away at me.
Silliness. That is all it is. Silliness.
So I am going to shake it off. Immerse myself in things that bring me happiness and soak all of that in.
You know what? It’s okay to have feelings that are not happy all of the time. But I can’t wallow and let it get to me.
Nothing good comes from that so my goal is to move on and get over it.
How about you? How has your week been? Highs? Lows? Even keel? Hope your weekend brings you much happiness and contentment.

We all have grumpy days. I like to think I don’t but my husband would say otherwise. LOL Smile, it makes the world wonder what you’ve been up to. Xo
Haha. We all do get grumpy and it puzzles me why I am but I am rising above it!
Good morning! Oh my gosh- The same thing happened to me about a week ago. I’m even going to talk about it on the next podcast (don’t worry, won’t mention you!) at first I didn’t even notice, until my son pointed it out, but I was snarky and critical. I need to be a lot nicer!
Yes! It is a real thing and I just could not figure out why! Poor Chris gets the brunt of it, of course.
I agree that we are all entitled to feel grumpy sometimes. We were created by God to have feelings and emotions. Grumpy. Happy. Sad. Whatever.
Those feelings are all there, aren’t they? I just hate to be grumpy, though. Just not in my nature so I need to just get rid of the grumps and move on!
I’ve had a distressing week….nothing involving family, just something with friends. And it’s been a very emotional week for me. I’m having to just spend more time outside, enjoying our yard and flowers. Gardening is good therapy! Hope your mood improves, soon. You’re right that we all have those days/ weeks.
Being outside definitely helps me as well and the weird thing was we were doing some pretty amazing things like taking a day in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Still grumpy! I am fine now but honestly it was disconcerting!
Some weeks are just like that. I get grumpy from time to time too as we all do. Often we’re not even certain why we feel the way we do, but identifying it and moving on helps. Better days ahead!
Better days ahead for sure!
I started the week off in a funk as well but I’m doing better now. Looking forward to a quiet weekend!
A funk is.a great way to describe my mood! I am coming out of it but whew. Not fun to be a grump.
Grumpy pants is my middle name sometimes. That is the challenge of adult life…Find joy in-spite of the monkey wrenches life flings at us. Not always an easy task to accomplish.
That totally made me laugh. How could you be grumpy pants? It had my stumped because I have absolutely no reason to be grumpy! Forward ho!
We all have Grumpy days we just have to shake them off and try again.
Exactly! That is what I am doing! Onward!
Weekends have entirely different meanings now that I’m retired. In fact, weekends in general are not my favorite now…I like it better when everyone goes back to work and it’s more peaceful around here! I get grumpy when I have to make dinner, and all the work to get ready to make dinner, including the grocery store. But other than that I’ve had a pretty good week. I hope your next week is a lot happier!
There is always something that can get in our way of happiness, right? I just allowed a couple of things to bug me and could not shake them off. This is a new week and maybe not so busy so that will help! Hope you have a great week as well.
