Rant #1: Today is the day before Thanksgiving and the roads have been packed since yesterday afternoon. Since when did people start their Thanksgiving traveling on Tuesday???? It really irks me (is there such a thing as a Thanksgiving scrooge?)
Rant #2: I live in a relatively small beach town and we only have one highway that connects the "town I live in" to the "city I work in"... yesterday, I spent 20 minutes traveling a distance that should really take no more than a minute and a half... I am teaching a class tonight and I am dreading the annoying traffic...Ughhhhh!
Rant #3: I have to teach a class tonight... Why in the world didn't I have the good sense to cancel the class and have an alternate assignment?
Rant #4: I began wrting this post over 4 hours ago.... I wrote rants 1 - 3 earlier this afternoon when I was feeling "ranty". Now I am not feeling "ranty" and don't know what to write...
On that note... Now that I am home and I am sitting on my couch (with a great bowl of split pea soup cooling off in front of me) reflecting on my successful class this evening, I realize that I feel Thankful...
I am Thankful for many things... too many to mention right now (because my pea soup is beckoning me) but I am glad to have this feeling... It reminds me that when I get those pesky "Rants In My Pants" maybe I can step back, take a deep breath and remember that life is only as hard as I let it be!
Happy Thanksgiving Eve!
