Like always recently. For wanting to write, for work, for other things that confirm you’re not preggo. (Clarification: I’m not pregnant. I was just late.)
I wanted to write for Just Write yesterday. On the day you’re “supposed” to just write. But didn’t. You know, because I had to work (not in my basement!) all morning and then pick Cami up from school and then go get Baby Jedi from daycare.
DAYCARE! You would think this being my third kiddo in daycare, that it would have been easier… And probably unrelated (but you just can’t be sure, ya know) Baby Jedi had his first lay-on-the-floor-face-down temper tantrum. And he hit me for the first time. In two separate incidents.
And then after the kids went to bed I tried to work from home more, because I was given a HUGE deadline at work that is going to take way more than my 6 hours of office time in the next week. But, couldn’t, because I didn’t have the softward capabilities to do so. Ugh. Annoyed.
This whole winter setting in thing, my baby turning one and starting daycare two mornings a week, and PMS? Well, it has pretty much kicked my butt these last couple of weeks and it set in really good yesterday.
Though I did have good hair yesterday. That was a plus.
I’m feeling better today. I’m taking dinner to a family tonight whose 6 year old daughter is fighting an inoperable tumor that is a rapid moving cancer. Kinda puts things into perspective.
And, on a lighter note, I went to Trader Joe’s. I mean, who can’t feel better after going to Trader Joe’s? And I got peppermint taffy. Mmmm… Oh, and Udi’s gluten-free bagels as a splurge. (Really, $4.99 for FOUR bagels?!) And I just ate one, toasted with peanut butter, and it was divine. Definitely what I needed today.
So thanks Trader Joe’s. I bet you never knew you were a partial cure for SAD, huh?
