what to do when you are in a wretched mood

Do you ever have one of those days where you are irritable and everything sets you off?
So that was my day.

I started off the day in a fabulous mood. Dave and I went out to breakfast and ran errands together. All was swell until I got home and took a nap. When I woke up from my nap I was crazy. Irritable. Crabby. Like a young child.
Edgy ... Irritable 

Typically when this happens I can go for a walk with Polo and snap out of it. But that did not happen today and I'm ashamed to say that of course my poor husband got the wrath.

When I am terribly irritable and acting like a bizznitch, I always feel terrible about it but no matter how bad I feel it does not change my mood.

During this experience, I really felt alone. I wanted to snap out of it but nothing I tried was helping me.

Like I said, I went for a long walk with Polo.
I picked weeds in our flower bed.
I surfed the web and surfed some more.
I cleaned.
I read a book. 

I finally realized that I just needed time. I just needed to sit with feeling yuck and let it be.
I curled up on the couch with a beverage and some popcorn and settled in to watch Storage Wars and Pawn Stars.

I ended up feeling a bit better around bed time but hated that I felt like I wasted a day being irritable and not as productive as I could have been.

Do you ever experience days like this? What do you do to snap out of it? How do you cheer yourself up?

I do get like that once in a while...but everyone has their own way of snapping out of it. It's human to feel BLAH once in a while..to get in a funky mood..sometimes there's a reason and sometimes there isn't . It always helps me to have time to myself when this happens and then eventually...my mood goes back to "normal".

Christine, You are so right! Dave went out and played poker with some of his buddies on Saturday night and I had some "me" time and that really helped me snap out of it! :)

ahhhh!!! I HATE days like this!! (I am so glad that I am not the only one who has times like this!!) Usually a nap will kick me out of my funk or I will just try not to talk too much!! :)

I too get days like that, it can be so difficult to snap out of it too! Different things might work for me on different days, but there doesn't seem to be any one thing that helps sadly! xox
