I’m tired today because I stayed up too late last night catching up on neglected tasks. I don’t function well on 4 hours of sleep. Aside from nearly falling asleep at my desk during the after lunch lull, I was (am) a bit cranky. I found myself thinking “whatever” several times today. To me, “whatever” signals that I’ve stopped listening and the person needs to go away.
After an eleven hour day (from the time I left this morning to when I got home after my son’s gymnastics class), I should’ve been happy that my husband had dinner ready. Instead, I was annoyed because he used an entire box of pasta and a whole jar of alfredo sauce. If we were having a block party and planned to invite 10 of our closest neighbors, this would’ve worked out great. Instead, we’re going to be eating pasta for the next two days because I don’t want to waste it.
Even more frustrating is the fact this was an encore performance and the same thing just happened a few months ago. Grrrrr. Don’t get me wrong, even when I’m not tired, this type of thing really annoys me. But it’s been 3 hours and I’m still dwelling on it. That tells me I need a nap 🙂
There. Now that I’ve got that off my chest, I can be happy that I got to eat and didn’t have to cook or clean tonight. While I’m looking on the positive side, I can report that he has learned something after 13 years of marriage: he didn’t dare ask me if it was “that time of month”. (no, it’s not) That’s a good thing, because I just don’t have time to plan his funeral right now.
