My coat smells like licorice and other things I want to bitch about

So, I woke up on the wrong side of the bed today.
Most of the time I am a very positive person. The last few days have been hard in a few departments.
I spent most of last year putting on a good game face while dealing with cancer. Anyone who reads my other blog knows I can still have a sense of humour in the face of a lot of crap.
Today I am upset about petty stuff. My clothes don't fit after all this cancer weight gain and my business is slow at this time of year/ during these economic times so I should not spend money on new clothes. My hair is at an annoying length so it never looks good... and when I complain about my hair people tell me I look great, fine, really cute( ya, I love being 42 and cute)etc etc. I am annoyed I misjudged my time this morning and did not pack a good lunch. In other words I am crabby for no good reason at all.

One of my customers came in to buy something for her daughter who has MS and cannot leave the house very easily. They are spending the day trying to transport her wheelchair somewhere safely as they are planning to go away for a few days.

My crabbiness was put firmly in it's place in the face of that and I am trying hard to give the day my best.
Things could always get worse.
A happier, more product related post soon.
