Even thought Iím inexplicably incapable of maintaining a good frame of mind for very long at a time, I was still caught unawares by how quickly things turned this afternoon. I actually thought I was having a good day, until all the bad news started cascading down on me. Itís all work-related, which means the details donít matter, except to say that my job is not in jeopardy. Only my sanity.

On the other hand, maybe it was the fact that I was in a good mood that made the precipitous downturn so hard to take. Youíre ambling along a country lane on your way to the old fishing hole, feeling as content as can be, when all of a sudden youíre blindsided by a grizzly. Itís not that Iíd rather have seen it coming, but maybe I could have taken another path.

Itís kind of funny, though. I get all worked up and ready to throw in the towel, and then something minor happens and Iím eager to take on the world again. It would be nice if I could keep moving steadily through life without getting too high or too low, but thatís just not me. Anyway, I had a pleasant chat with the Boss this evening, during which he casually told me to write myself a bonus check. It doesnít make the bad stuff go away, but it takes away some of the sting.
