I’m feeling kinda snarky today. I blame it on a combination of lack of quality sleep, a head full of infectious snot, and kids who feel compelled to try and maim one another.
Sleep: I don’t think I can do much about this until (a) I clear up the snot issue and (b) Mr. G’s dad is out of the hospital which means Mr. G is home at bedtime and (c) E moves back into his own bed–he has taken up residence in mine since daddy has not been home at bedtime.
Infectious secretions: I called the dr’s office this morning and explained that not only am I not better, but that I indeed feel worse. I am still waiting for someone to call me back. Ummmm, yeah, I’m not so good at the waiting so that contributes to the snarky issue.
Children: I’m thinking I can go with beating them or locking them in seperate closets. The only thing is that I don’t want to hear the screaming that will ensue with either option. I’m working on a plan C.
So, as I was driving home from work and pondering life (yes, I do that sometimes) I had a thought (yes, that occasionally happens too). I have spent the better part of my life wishing for something other than what I had—wishing I was thinner, prettier, had a boyfriend, had a different boyfriend, had a better job, had a different job, etc. etc etc. And why? Why am I wasting all this energy on what I don’t have rather than being happy with what I do have? Right now my biggest time waster is my appearance. OK self, let’s face it, I am never going to be a size 2. It’s just not going to happen. I just don’t like to exercise that much, I don’t want to spend 1/3 of my day exersicing (nor do I have the time for that), and I really, really like food. And I don’t want to give up things I like–I don’t want to eat carrots and cucumbers when I really want a doughnut. And I have I mentioned my love for all things baked? I just don’t think life is worth living if I can’t have a slice of fresh hot bread, or cake with chocolate frosting. I don’t want to be vegan or vegetarian. I don’t want to give up sugar and flour. I don’t want to give up sweet tea with lemon or creamer in my coffee. So, what I need to do is be OK with that and the result. Right?! Right!!! Now, I gotta go fix tacos for dinner. LOL
