I Am Having An Excellent Day

When I was little, I used to have this picture book called I Am Having An Excellent Day.  The gist of the book is that this cat is planning on having a great day with his friends, but each thing that he plans ends up falling apart. The flip side of this is that every time something ends up falling apart, something better happens. The only one of these I can remember at the second is that he wanted to eat some of his favorite cereal, but it was all gone. So, his mom made him some pancakes. Every time that this basic turn of events would happen, the line would reoccur- "I am having an excellent day."

The past week has been a bit of a roller coaster for me. Very few, if any of you, know what's been going on lately, and for the sake of just plain integrity on one part, and for the reason that I just don't really want to share the other one, I won't expand on that here. If you need to know, you do know. So, anyway, to summarize- Week = Meh. The past two days in particular have been pretty hard. And yet, yesterday I was in an okay mood. I'm not usually like that. If you know me, you know that I'm a big baby and like to cry about my problems and I'm extremely guilty of vaguebooking (I'm trying to stop that, though. It's annoying.) So, while the fact that I was in a good mood yesterday is weird enough, the even weirder thing is that today, I was in a most excellent mood. Like, I was skipping. It's not a pretty thing for me to skip, so I try to reserve it for steps where it's less obvious. So, I was skipping.

And I was grinning all day. Yea, even unto flat out smiling big. I have laughed a lot. I have just been downright chipper.

Stuff has not changed. I still have problems, but for some reason, those things don't seem to be a big deal right now. It's the weirdest thing. I'm not like the cat. Nobody is looking at my mess pile and making me pancakes. And yet, I am having an excellent day.

There is no hidden whatever going on. I don't have a secret. As far as I know, nobody has slipped me happy pills. And yet, I am having an excellent day.

So, now if you don't mind, I'm going to go make people suspicious of me.

Because that's what you do when people are smiling for no reason.
