Crankypants McGhee

23 May

tearIn addition to carrying over some irritability from yesterday afternoon, I also woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning. This has made for unpleasantness all around and if I could crawl into a dark cave for days and have no one need anything from me or bother me, I would so do it. But sadly, reality doesn’t always match desire. I am just hopeful that this is simply the doings of that bitch of a scape goat, PMS, and not the beginning of a depressive cycle, which I call going into the Black. I will be cheering for the former…GO PMS GO!!!

It is an extra long weekend coming up when you add in my day off and the holiday. I find long weekends to be daunting sometimes. We have no plans really although I’m sure we’ll find something to do. Yet I can’t help but stress about how I’m going to entertain a four year old for three entire straight days? I suppose that makes me sound horrible. Motherhood overwhelms me so often. Tomorrow I will take her to day care and go for a run I think. Maybe that will clear my head a bit.

IMG_20130522_165136_065Back to work today after what feels like a zillion days off. Productivity was negligible but I considered it a win that I even got there on time. Its the little things sometimes. My brain is all over the place which has never been unusual but it’s especially bad here lately. I’ll do better tomorrow. Honest.

I got up early and ran this morning. So there is that. Morning workouts alleviate guilt. So sez I. Will I do it again? Maybe. I’m not big on commitment when it comes to these things so we’ll see.

Hubs got a new-to-him ride yesterday. I call it his “fancy pants” car. It suits him and I can’t really explain why. I do know that the fancy pants car is way smarter than me.

Oh, I went and saw The Great Gatsby a few days ago. I read the book years ago and hated it. I don’t remember why I hated it exactly, it was just boring and pointless or somehow otherwise unfulfilling. But the movie captivated me and now I want to read the book again to see if I passed unfair judgement on it. The costumes, the scenery, the cars, the colors, the everything about it was glorious. Plus Leo and Toby? Cuuuuuties. It made me want to have lived in New York in the 1920s. Minus all the angsty love stricken drama.

And now it is 9:36pm and I must go walk the dog. Goodnight.

St. George Island fun

Hi blog

17 May

I’m still around, just busy with various and sundry. I feel like I am not consistent with anything except being inconsistent. Does that count for anything? I’m guessing not.

We just returned from our annual family vacation. This time we shook things up a bit and headed to St. George Island, FL instead of our usual Panama City. It was LOVELY. I do think we will go back there in years to come. Kiddo loved it as well, although she made a funny comment on the way home and announced that she wanted to go to Africa for vacation next year. I do hope she inherited a bit of my wanderlust and takes any opportunities she can to exercise it.

I’m off work until Wednesday so the extra few days to reenter “real life” will be nice.

Ciao for now.
