Debbie Downer No More!

I’ve survived another family funeral.  It wasn’t fun… but I’m still here.

Seems all I’ve been doing lately is suviving.  Surviving the heat wave.  Surviving money problems.  Surviving setbacks left and right.

Honestly, lately whenever I talk to people I feel like Debbie Downer.

You know… the character on SNL that can turn any good situation into a bad one with just a few words of sullen sad sap story, punctuated by a trombone hit with every punchline?

Yeah with three deaths in the family in one year, a non-existant lovelife, and a slew of financial setbacks, it’s easy to be the Debbie Downer in any situation.

But dammit… no more.

I’m done with Wah-Wahhhh moments.  I’m done with feeling sorry for myself.  And god knows, I’m done with funerals for a LONG TIME.  There’s only a few weeks left to this summer, and I’m going to do whatever it takes to enjoy them. 

Too bad I have to spend every other weekend in Kenosha getting my mom ready to move. Wah Wahhhh! STOP IT!!!!

OK… maybe I need a vacation… another getaway. 

Yeah but I already cancelled that cruise… seems silly to book another one now.  Wah Wahhhh!  ARRRRGH!

OK OK… fine.  But chorus is starting up again, and it’s looking to be a fun season.  I always like chorus.  It brings my spirits up… and who knows, I could meet a cute new chorus boy to date!

You know what they say about chorus dating… not too good for the soul.  Besides, I haven’t had any good luck dating chorus boys in the last few years– why start now?  Wah Waaahhh!  DAMN YOU, DEBBIE DOWNER!

OK maybe this is going to be harder than I thought… 🙂  But I’m willing to give it a good try.

Yeah well… SHUT UP, BITCH!

Ahhh… I feel better already! 🙂
