Sometimes all I have to do is blog about my bad mood and it magically disappears. I guess that is why the journals I've kept over the course of my lifetime are filled with awful tear-streaked rants. I'll pick one up when I'm feeling overwhelmed and upset and will write, write, write. Should I ever happen to just pick one up and read it, I am horrified by how negative it all seems. Flashback to seventh grade: "I hate them all! I hate everyone! I hate my life!") I don't ever journal about the good days. I will go a year or more without writing and then I just open it back up to vent again. Note to self: burn all journals before I die.
What I'm saying is, I feel better today! Funk seems to be gone, for the most part. Is it that I wrote about it? Is it that John is coming home tonight and may have a day or two off (for the first time in 18 days?) Is it that the sun is shining and the kids ate outside today and the kitchen is cleaned and dinner is made? Probably.
Whatever it is, I'll take it.
Had an appointment with Becca's allergist yesterday. Mentioned the two bee stings she got this summer and the rash that happened on her trunk afterwards. Now she has to have an epi-pen. F*ck!!!
Doctor totally recommended the H1N1 vaccine for everyone, especially children. I think I may bite the bullet and go for it. Especially once he said the word encephalitis. Of course, he hadn't heard of the adjuvant in the H1N1 vaccine that I was worried about. Is it possible I've over-researched this?
(You: Oh no. Not you!)
There's all kinds of drama going on at Becca's preschool. They keep switching teachers on us at the last minute and the parents are fed up and pissed off. Everyone thinks the teaching from last year was lacking and is worried it won't be academic enough this year. And I am just kind of......not that concerned about that portion of it. I wish they did more creative stuff--how about finger painting? Or more plays/shows/songs? I am just not all that freaked out about academics in preschool? Am I missing something? Is this what our society has come to? Massive hysteria over the preschool teachers?
(Where's my cocktail, beyotches? This isn't my cup of tea.)
