I Have a Case of the Mondays

Today is not going well. I am trying to be positive. I am trying to find my reset button to get out of a mild state of constant panic and a full-blown state of getting nothing done.

To make matters worse, I feel like an absolute jerk for lingering on everything that is not going well and being such a grumpy mess while doing so. I got an email from a friend last night letting me know one of her dear friends passed away earlier that day.
