Kind of a lousy day

That’s how I would describe yesterday. It didn’t get off to a bad start, but in the afternoon and early evening I had stuff with my dear daughter. That put me in a bad mood. Later on, I thought to myself: Well, it’s 2 steps forward, one step back. Things were a bit better lately, and this episode was just a helpful reminder that I have to keep on track and not loosen up. That’s it.

To improve my mood, I decided to check out what was available on the pay TV. It was rather cold outside and the local movie didn’t interest me, so the home cinema was a good option. What did I find? Desperately Seeking Susan!

I’d seen that film when it first came out — was it 1984? A friend from work had an appointment early in the morning the next day — in Manhattan, and she lived in New Jersey. So I invited her to spend the night at my place. We did some shopping. She decided to buy a new dress for the next day at work. Yes, back then we wore dresses and skirts to work! And in the evening, we went to the movies.

Last night was a fun trip down memory lane. It’s a fun movie — with Madonna way back when. I also enjoyed seeing Manhattan back in the 80ies, back when I used to live there. It is a document of an era.

By the time I went to bed, I was in a better mood. It’s just another typical case of the ups and downs in life. And teenage daughters make it that much more interesting. Just because we had a prolonged argument doesn’t mean that the whole day was lousy. Just part of it.
