The stress post below asked what stresses you the most - the big or the little things. I need to start doing a study on if when you are under a big stress, the little things just seem more obvious and bigger or if in fact, a big stress turns the balance so decidedly to the bad side of things that little stressful things actually do start to add up.
As part of my case study I will include this morning when I woke up to quiet home since The Boy is at his grandparents. The humidity has broken so I set up a chair, coffee and a book outside under the big oak trees. I was there 5 minutes when the service that mows the lawn shows up.
They never show up on Saturdays.
So now not only is my moment interrupted, but I have to clean up the toys from the yard of course dropping the kiddie picnic table on my foot in the process. Also, the windows in the house now need to be closed as I am allergic to cut grass and already battling a cold complete with lost voice, headache and runny nose.
Eventually one of these seemingly little things is going to absolutely cause me to crack.
At least there is a movie featuring Teh Clooney on tv.
