Things that put me in a bad mood:
Adjusting to new meds. ARGH
When Spring plays games with us. ARGH
Massive, all the way up the back diaper blowouts when the baby is wearing a fresh clean white onesie (right after I have bathed her and put lotion all over her) leading to another screamy diaper change and bath-ARGH
Bunny diarrhea all over the kitchen floor (she snuck some dog food again)-ARGH ARGH!
When my kids fight about ridiculous things-GRRRR
When Ella bites me-OWWWWWW
When people leave their clean laundry in the kitchen instead of putting it away-GRRRRRRRRRRR
A messy bathroom-GRRR
My husband snoring like a chain-saw-ARGH I know he can’t help it, but still AARGH
When my kids are playing with Ella and she gets hurt. –
But mostly, adjusting to new meds. –AAAARGGGGGGGHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!
Things that kind of sort of soothe my bad mood but not enough to make you want to actually live with me:
My husband taking all the kids out in the cold to watch soccer and leaving me to watch a couple of episodes of Downton Abbey in peace-Ahhhhhhhhh
Ella’s sweet smile (she has turned super sweet again (whew!), long live NOT TEETHING) and goofy grin.
Creating order-ahhhhhh. I am reading The Happiness Project and because I am adjusting to new meds I am finding it to be mostly insufferable naval gazing. But there is a chapter in there regarding decluttering where one of her friends mentions that she keeps an empty shelf in her house. Today I created an empty drawer. It is a little bit empowering when you are feeling claustrophobic because you live in a house that is MUCHTOODAMNSMALL.
Sea salt truffle caramel ice cream in a sugar cone with a cup of tea. ………..
(Until I weigh myself-AAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH)
Seriously, can I just be quarantined on a deserted island for the next week or two? I think that would be best for everyone.
