Wednesday is "little things" Day.

little things: the moments that are given to a person in a rough or even good day that helps her/him get through the day.

If you follow me on Twitter, you know yesterday was a bit of a rough day for me. Okay fine, it was rough. So rough in fact that I took a moment to complain about it on publicly.

I don't do things like that.

I complain privately to a group of people and that's it. Sometimes I complain to all of them and sometimes I just complain to one of them.

I am a big "suck it up" kind of person because there is always someone who has a worse situation than you do.

But yesterday I just needed to complain.

And complain I did.

  • Excuse me while I complain... I am sick of not having nice things.
  • It must be nice not to live pay check to pay check.
  • And it must be nice to have date night not on a budget or anything not on a budget for that matter. I WOULDN'T FREAKING KNOW.
  • And it sure as hell must be nice to be worried about when your next trip will be.
  • And I would love to know what it's like to gripe about not being able to find the right furniture or designer clothes.
  • I know we're just getting started and I have a job.
  • But I'm just having a day. And I needed to complain. I'll be okay. And someday I'll be very grateful for all that we will have.
  • But that day isn't today. Today I just need to be mad.
  • #Soapbox and excessive #twitterrant over
Yeah, it was bad.

And after I got that out of my system, the little things that help me get by started happening.

My dad called me because he follows me on twitter. We had a good conversation.

Then, I started getting some texts that just made me smile for the most inappropriate reasons.

I also hadn't checked my email all day and realized I had a ton of comments and by ton, I mean 8. That's a lot for me.

And finally, the mother of all "little things" happened.

This song came on the radio.

And I knew that I would be getting a night of good rest and today would be better.

What are the little things that get you by?

Happy Wednesday.

Music def. gets me by...if I listen to Sublime or Journey it usually perks me up.

I saw your tweets yesterday but wasn't sure whether to respond or let you be. I am glad you are feeling better.

Oh man...who could that horribly inappropriate person have been? I'm shocked and appalled! (blushing)

So funny though...Your texts totally turned my frown upside down last night too. (Thank you for that!)

And I was reminded yet again that I am just so grateful to know you:)

Sometimes if the wisdom in "I like big butts and I cannot lie.." gets you through the day, I am all for it! :)

And a good wine recc - Red Bicycle...less than 10 dollars. Soo delish! I've been asking husband for white wine recommendations as I'm not a fan, but I'll get back to you soon!
