Half Empty

There were good things that happened today. For sure. But I had kind of a rough day. First, as we were practicing music for ward conference, someone asked the group of sopranos to move down to the first row. I moved, but no one else did.

So there I was the lone soprano among altos and we're singing this song that we are supposed to sing fortissimo on an F. After the last run though the pianist pulled me aside and told me that I need to blend better otherwise I stick out. Keep in mind, I was on the front row with the altos AT HER REQUEST.

Then someone else chastised me for something I said. Perhaps I deserved it. I need to learn to keep my mouth shut.

Then at a meeting someone asked me how I was doing and I burst into tears. The someone said, "Huh." Then talked about other things as if everything were just fine. So mostly I felt stupid. Plus, this person talks in a very dramatic way mostly because they like to hear themselves talk, I think.

After that, I drove around in my car for a while. I may or may not have been crying. Then I came home and had a good cry and a nap.

I'm betting tomorrow will be better.
