The other day I grabbed raw eggs instead of hard boiled eggs by accident to eat at work for breakfast. Luckily, all it took was one small tap and no mess for me to realize it but it was a bummer that I lost half my breakfast. I also forgot my usual water bottle which I know is really minor but having that water bottle is part of my routine and on a bad day it annoys me to no end when my routine is off even a little bit. The ATM machine in 7-11 that I normally use was broke down so I knew I'd have to make an extra stop after work and then there were two accidents on the freeway so I sat in traffic and was 10 minutes late for work. Last night I found out that El Pollo Loco discontinued my food. The under 500 calorie black bean bowl is no longer available. Don't you hate it when that happens? They make you fall in love with it and then take it away. I've never ordered anything else from there so I didn't know what to get. This morning I put on my shirt and got deodorant all over it then I flicked yogurt all over my sweater when I was putting my lunch together.
When the traffic hit I turned up the music in my car and started singing along. At least I got my coffee. At least there is money in the ATM machine for me to get. When I couldn't get my black bean bowl I tweeted El Pollo Loco. I have no hope that they will bring back the bowl but at least I enjoyed it while it lasted. Nothing really seems to phase me this week. Even tripping over MJ's shoes yet again this morning didn't bother me in the slightest. I want to bottle up this positive vibe and stash it away somewhere so that I can take it out on one of those days where I'm in the dumps or just in a rotten mood and every little thing pisses me off. You know those days where you are so grumpy in general that you are annoyed with yourself for being annoyed by everything and yet you still can't stop being annoyed? I've been struggling lately. There were no less then two meltdowns last month so it feels great to be in a good mood and feel like nothing can get me down.

I'm sure most of my good mood is because of vacation. I was just kind of whatever about it a few weeks ago but last night I was so excited I could barely sleep and focusing at work today is going to be hard. I just want out! It's been a long time since I went to NYC and I can't wait for the sheer magnitude of those giant buildings to have me standing on the sidewalk staring up at them with my mouth hanging open. We've got some really fun things planned and I just can't wait!! I won't be blogging but I will be on Instagram. The significance of our travel date didn't dawn on me until a few weeks ago. Flying to New York on 9/11 makes me just a little uncomfortable but I'm sure it's nothing to worry about.
I'll leave you with this little gem from Sunday. You might want to turn down your volume. MJ thought it would be really fun to try to give me a heart attack while I was packing, film it and then put it on Facebook. I was mad but even I have to admit that it's hilarious. And just in case you are wondering our bed always looks that way. We stopped making it everyday years ago and the decorative pillows never come out of the closet.
