Angry Beavers

Obviously blogging wasn't one of my new years resolutions. I figure that takes away a feeling of failure for the time when my blogging is sparse.

Like now.

I really feel like I have nothing to post about. My days are busy, but not in the way others would percieve as fun or exciting. I wake up, get Emma off to school, watch a little news or New Adventures Of Old Christine (of which I've seen every episode, but still love), get dressed, do school with Mags, make lunch, go to work, come home, eat dinner, go to bed.

See, super exciting.

One new development is my anger issues. I don't know if it's the weather or what, but lately the littlest thing sets me off. I've always had a little anger problem, but my happy pills usually keep it at bay for the most part. Maybe it's because I'm working a lot and not running (yucky inversion!) that's making me angry. Maybe I just need to have a good attitude adjustment. Maybe it's my delayed reaction to things that happen in my life.

Whatever it is though, I've got to work on it. I've tried harder the last couple of days to be more patient with my kids and let the little things slide by. I've made an effort to pay attention to my thoughts when I start getting that angry feeling to see what the heck I can do to calm the crazy voices in my head.

*Just so we're clear, I'm not really hearing voices. No I'm not. No, I'm not, I swear.

So if you see me at the grocery store or the library and I have a larger than normal scowl on my face, just disregard it, and pretend you don't see me. Trust me, you're probably better off that way.

And lets pray for an early Spring, mmkay?

How bout if I see you and you have a scowly face I just kick your ass! ;) That might take your mind of your issues. lol. I'm willing to help any way I can.

Obviously I am right with you on the blog resolutions. I just can't think of anything to blog about that isn't mundane. ~sigh~

You are entitled to a scowl. But don't use one on me - I might melt! (I'm pretty sensitive, you know!)

YES! Please bless that spring comes early! Like tomorrow!

Feel free to punch a random stranger when you get angry. And then blog about it. Cuz that would be funny for me to read.

I think working and being a mom may have a little to do with that. (At least that is my excuse when it's an off day.) Smile!

If nate eats sugar on an empty stomach he gets really angry and every little thing sets him off.

Stress and hormones make me grumpy. Also not enough sleep. I hope you feel better soon. Maybe Sean could install a punching bag in the basement for you. I think I might do that for my son Isaac. Maybe I'd use it too.

January is just an irritating, complete waste of a month (and same with Feb and most of March) blame it on that...the cold/inversion/lack of sun totally sucks. I love your idea of the mileage counter and 26 miles a month!! (That reminds me I was going to put the miles I've logged on the treadmil on my calendar and I haven't. Gotta do that! Thanks for the reminder and even better to put up a mileage counter)
