It's been awhile since I've posted. That's because I've been kind of a downer to be around lately. Generally speaking, I am not super sensitive, nor do I get annoyed at little things. Lately though, I've been finding myself annoyed by things that I know would not normally bother me. I hate feeling upset about things that I know don't really matter.

The lady that won't put her dog in the basement when I visit with my boys annoys me because then I worry the entire time about keeping the boys away from the dog--the dog that chases them around the house and bites them. Or I get annoyed by the girl that is a 100 lb lightweight whining about how fat she is even when she admits in the same sentence that she eats whatever she wants. So, yeah, it's kind of annoying. But, those things would take a lot longer to annoy me than they do now.

On top of that, everything, literally everything, is making me anxious. So, I haven't exactly had happy little things to write. Not that I have to always have something happy to write about, which you know if you regularly read my blog. I'm just trying hard not be annoyed or anxious about things so I'm trying not to write about them.

Last night I had the following conversation with Will:

Will: Mom I prayed about something in my prayers that might make you happy.
Me: Oh yeah? What was that?
Will: Well, remember when you said today that you were crappy?
Me: I'm fairly certain I never said I was crappy.
Will: No, you did. You said you were going to take a nap because you were feeling crappy. Remember?
Me: Ah, well, what I actually said was that I was feeling cranky and I was hoping taking a short nap would make me less cranky when I woke up.
Will: Oh. Well, I prayed that you would not be crappy tomorrow so maybe tomorrow will be better for you.

Hmmm. Well, I guess he's not too far off. Me being cranky is pretty crappy.

I told Mike last night that he was lucky he's been so busy with church, tutoring, writing his thesis, and preparing his presentation because then he only has to be around my cranky little self for brief periods of time.

He agreed. That's annoying.

Just kidding.

I'm annoying myself.

You are not annoying to me! I understand being anxious about everything. I am that way, and I don't like it. Jason teases me that if I don't have something that I need to worry about I will make something up!

Good luck, I hope you will feel less crappy...hahaha

You may be annoying to yourself, but your post made me laugh out loud. I don't meant that to be insensitive - the ending was just really funny.
Hopefully that crankiness will soon go away. Maybe a few days away will be just what you need!

Yep, that was a good one. My kids think I'm always "crappy". Sounds like I need a nap too. Can Will pray that I'll get one?

Will cracks me up--I was laughing out loud about you being crappy.

Thanks so much for your encouraging and thoughtful comment. I really appreciate your friendship, and I hope that life settles down soon for you. I can only imagine how stressful it must right now with so much going on and coming your way. You're completely capable, though, and I'm sure it will all work out. You're welcome to come escape at our place!

I'm sure Mike would be glad to be pregnant while YOU did the church calling, tutoring, thesis, et al.


I'm so glad you look for the humor and recognize it when it hits you!

You're great!
