Yesterday I just spent the whole day building up to a eye-twitching, hair raising, stomach aching mad. First off, I got super stressed in the morning, due to a paycheck error my boss made a couple weeks ago that I didn't find out til yesterday-and it's partially my fault for not paying more attention to my account balances. Needless to say, I'm still working that one out. But, I felt so uptight that I ate a bit too much sugar and drank to much coffee. Also, work was stressful and it continued through the day. I came home with a frozen storebought lasagna and french bread because I had to process some pickled red cabbage. I put dinner in the oven and started canning. Hubby made a few comments, combined with son-in-law and I started to simmer. Then, they ate ALL the lasagna and bread. Hubby said "oh, I didn't notice you were busy and didn't eat". Then, of course, a couple of jars broke, dogs got in a fight, a couple more comments re: me cleaning the kitchen were made (as hubby relaxed on the couch) and I just wanted to let 'em have it. However, I am wise enough to realize that I am starting menopause (cycling for 12 days and having hot flashes the whole time is enough to drive me crazy) so I kept my mouth shut. I wasn't tired, so I stayed up facebooking. Then I heard from someone that the facebook page I maintain for my work had a nasty comment on it, so I got madder, deleted it and felt good. Then, about 30 minutes later, boss texted saying don't delete that post. Whoops! So I got nervous and stayed up way to late trying to retrieve it. Steve gave me grief re: doing work at home, which made me snarl.
Today was a repeat of the same sort of stuff. Full moon, definitly. People who were, um, difficult at work, upset tummy (stress-related, I'm sure) and when I spent lunch with Steve, he kept joking and it was making me madder and madder. Also, a lot in my lap at work and of course, I have set the precident by not saying anything.
One big plus was son-in -law stopped and asked what he could get for dinner-hmmm, maybe he's not so thick after all, huh?
We have another big series of storms blowing in and we had a lot of flood damage in local low-lying areas, so people are nervous. What irritates me though, is they are blaming our city police department for not "keeping them aware of the flood situation, etc."
Maybe it's all hormones, or maybe everyone in my life really is an idiot right now?? Lyndsey has picked up on my mood (unlike Steve) and is steering clear of me. Boy, I need the Christmas spirit to hit me right between the eyes right now.
On a plus side, though...
