Next time, I’ll watch VEEP

So, my loyal followers may have noticed that I haven’t been posting as much lately.  And to be frank, I have been in a bit of a mini funk for the past two weeks.  Nothing earth shattering, just a random touch of blah.

This morning, I had an unexpected dose of fun and serious laughs with a few close friends on Facebook before I began my day.  The giggles and lightness of our exchanges put a little zip in my step and I could feel the return of what seemed like my long lost mojo–it really wasn’t long lost, it just makes a better story.

Ever the thinker, I remembered how a few days ago my husband asked me to watch an episode of VEEP.  ( I get a kick out of Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ portrayal of an awkward and very human Vice President and I think the other characters are well written too.)  I said no to VEEP.  I wasn’t in the mood.  I didn’t feel like I would laugh, and I didn’t want to waste the episode.

At the time, it felt like the thing to do.  But maybe I was wrong.  Maybe my mood would not have tainted VEEP.  Maybe it would have happened the other way around and VEEP would have tainted my mood–for the better.

Next time, I’ll watch VEEP.

  1. I like this because it is real and honest.
    I don’t think we always do the same thing and that is ok. This time you said no to veep next time you may say, yes. Sometimes we are down and sometimes we fake it until we make it kind of deal.
