Some days

There is an old saying, “Some days you’re the bug and other days you’re the windshield.” Heard that one before?

Well, these days I am feeling more like the bug.

Life comes at your awful fast and there is just so much crap going on. The “windshields” of life are coming faster and more furious and avoiding them is getting harder and harder. Actually, avoiding them is next to impossible at this point. It seems I am bouncing from one to another…

Pleasing anyone and everyone seems to be impossible and there are people in my life that are supposed to be rooting for me who just aren’t. Instead, they have become the windshield and there is no pleasing them and no relief from their scrutiny or criticism. I can do nothing correct in their eyes.

It’s frustrating. It’s tiring. It’s relentless. It’s making me just want to hunker down and avoid everyone (more so than usual). The problem is I can’t avoid them since they are here, around me, all the time.

So, instead of just hiding, I stagger from failure to failure, always being told that I have yet again done something that doesn’t meet with approval or at expectation. Words of praise or acceptance? Absent. Non-existent.

Today is no different. Feeling defeated.

Fruit fly

It’s an inane subject, but I am really tired of fruit flies.

I have no idea where they are coming from and they are sticking to a fly strip in record numbers.

WTH??

They suddenly showed up and won’t go away. I feel like I am swatting at the stupid things all day long as I work. what gives?

There is nothing around (at least according to the articles I have read) that would cause them to appear all of the sudden. But, that article in the last sentence provides some helpful hints on getting rid of them quick.

Guess I’ll be working on some mass murder this weekend.
