Hurricane Weather

So today... I'm really cranky. Grumpy. Bitchy. Whatever you wanna call it. That would be me.

The day started out well enough. I only had to get up with the baby once during the night. My father fixed every broken thing in my little car, filled the tank up, and brought it over to me. I got three loads of laundry washed, folded, and put away. I started some yummy spicy chicken, black bean, and corn stew in the crock pot.

BUT. I'm tired and cranky. And I can't take a much needed nap because Tim is working today and it's not very wise to leave a four year old and a 5 month old unattended for time spans longer than say... 15 seconds?

I tried to boil an egg to go on a salad I wanted for lunch. I promptly forgot about it and when I finally remembered, the egg had boiled completely out of its shell. So then I opted to heat up some veggie soup for lunch instead. After Ya-Ya insisted she wanted some, I spooned a bit into a bowl for her, set her up at the dining room table and then sat down to have my soup. Approximately 15 seconds later I hear her start sobbing, "I DROOOOOPPPPPPEEEEDDDD IIIITTTTT!!!!" And no, I wasn't mistaken. It was coming from the living room because she decided that even though Mommy sat her at the TABLE and even though she is not allowed to eat in the living room, that she would take a HOT BOWL OF SOUP in there and spill it all over my already gloriously crappy carpet. Hooray. So now, along with various spilled beverage stains and cat hair, there are also smushed up carrots and peas and tomato broth. I HATE my carpet. With any luck the living room carpet will be replaced with some of our income tax money.

WHICH by the way, STILL ISN"T HERE! Grrrrr... It's been a week and I'm not exactly known for being patient. On top of which, I have things I need to DO with that check. Do ya hear that IRS people? Just kindly deposit my return and then back away slowly from the cranky pregnant woman!! Somebody quick! Throw her a reese's cup!

*sigh* On top of all that, I've been feeling kind of bummed and isolated lately. Some of that was remedied last night when we went to a friend's house for dinner and had a nice visit.... but for some reason people seem to think that I "don't want to be bothered," so I haven't heard from a lot of the people I normally communicate with in a couple of weeks. I feel out of the loop because I don't know what's going on in their lives and I'm nosey. So yeah....

Today is just an Eeyore, gloomy, cranky, hurricane weather kind of day.

Your post suited me just fine! Having a bit of that myself right now... topped off with waking up this morning with my eyes literally so puffed up that I couldn't open them all the way. Bizarre allergy reaction. Yippee!! Am now completely cranky, plus ugly. :) Hugs.

im still waiting on word about my refund too. its only been a little over a week since we filed, but the irs website seems to be different than it was in the past. its not giving me a whole lot of info.

i get that isolated feeling a lot too. there was a time when i liked being home a lot, and although i still do, sometimes i feel trapped and stuck and its beyond frustrating.
