the weeds under the porch


Somewhere -- most likely in the little store of useless and expensive things across the street from the Japanese bakery -- I noticed a card printed with the inspirational phrase above.

Except I misread it as: Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about cheating yourself. Which, honestly, made a lot more sense to me.

Yeah, I'm feeling kinda bitter today. What one word best describes your mood?

My husband and I have decided to try for a baby... again.

Empty.

Magpie said...

Tired.
No, that's not a mood.
Hungry?
No, that's not a mood either.
Anxious?
That'll do.

First, I LOVE that card, and that expression. Because I am a TOTAL sucker.

As for my one word mood? Hmmm. Like Magpie, I think anxious best describes my mood.

Patti said...

Anxious.

And if tired counts as a mood, then that, too.

Beck said...

Ill, sadly.

Julia said...

I was going to go with tired, but Magpie says it's not a mood. Boo. So I guess cranky will have to be it.

I've always been so bitter, that can't be what I am feeling now.
How about outraged?

On the one hand, I'm off to see VB this afternoon = happy. On the other, I'm in the middle of yet another endless anovulatory cycle = defeated. BLECH.

why bitter today?

I too want to write tired.

Instead, flat. (denial holds most emotions at bay).

unfortunately I think a lot of us DO spend a lot of time cheating ourselves out of the good things God intends for us

I read the inspiring quote on your blog as cheating, too. Had to reread it and then I saw what it really said. I like cheating better. And that's how I feel: cheated.
