have i ever been grouchier than this in my whole life? no, never

April 21st, 2010

Seriously frickin’ grouchy. I lost my uterus, I sold my house, i moved into a new house, I got unassigned at my job, which means I might (or might not!) lose my job, I lost my beloved, crazy granny, all in the last 12 months. That is too much for a 12-month span of time. Stupid grief, menopause, inflexibility, old habits, and my need to have total control over everything, argh.

I forgot it was late opening and we woke up an hour and a half earlier than we needed to. No, that doesn’t mean that I managed to work out. I did do laundry, though. (thanks Ms. Honeybutt for getting my kid to school, since I had to start work before his school day started.)

Also, I lost the DVDs that were due back at the library. (I know, I know, the irony of a librarian misplacing her library materials is not lost on me. It can happen to the best and the worst of us, folks.) (They’re renewed. For now.)

I’ve lost all kinds of little, medium and big things in the move. We have different voicemail now and I can’t figure out how to work it. (I figured it out! “Press 3, message deleted!” OK, one small triumph.)


It’s five o’clock somewhere, right? In Idaho? It’s 5 o’clock in Idaho. I’m pouring a glass of wine, see you in the moonlight.

    Sounds like you need to move back to Northeast Portland. That big house out there might just be too big. :-) Happy Hour always helps too.

    Moving always creates this extended period of crazy-making chaos. Hang in there…

    Ok, lady, so I’m a kitty and lemme tell ya about my human’s moods! Use your freezer for them there hot flashes, just put your whole freakin’ head in the thing, Ma says it helps. And could always get yourself a male, neutered British Shorthair (like me) to put a PURRspective on things? Ma looks to me for wisdom–like when to take a nap and chill and stuff like that!

    1. It’s always 5 o’clock somewhere. That’s my mantra. Seriously. It’s sometimes how I get past 9 am.

    B. (Okay, so it’s not that often, just so you don’t think I’m TOO much of a lush. Just a little.)

    * Hopefully you’ll settle in okay. And it’s fine to have the grumpy days. That’s why God created monks who invented alcohol. (Or so I’m told.)

    Moving is HARD! All of your stuff is somewhere else, and it’s just hard. It will get easier, promise!
