Does God have bad days?

There's so much joy
in completion;
such delight,
when something's finished
and off your plate;
tied up and delivered
and somewhere close to perfect...

I wonder if God feels that way
at the end of each day --
all those tasks accomplished,
all those lives enriched,
all that beauty created...

and does God have bad days?
Days when everything goes wrong
and the sun seems permanently stuck
behind the clouds of failure and remorse;
days when it seems that no-one will ever
understand or appreciate
all God's hard work?

I've always wondered if he can feel sad? Then I've wondered if when I notice, only me, does that make him glad? :) Childish?
