What are you thinking? What do you feel a little guilty thinking?

*I really really really want a lettuce-wrapped cheeseburger and onion rings from Biggieís.

*I hate wearing a mask, want a haircut, and am sick of being responsible.

Can I have a "Yell it out loud" Wednesday even though it's not alliterative?

I'm so irritable this morning, I just want to yell Shut up at every person around me! Not PT people, don't worry, but everyone else! They are all driving me crazy.

Sometimes all the extra precautions and all that seem to heighten my anxiety and I want to say, "to heck with it" and pretend that nothing is wrong, and live life as normal. Don't worry I'm not doing that though.

Steroid injections may calm the pain but they release a need to eat everything in sight and then some. They trigger wild dreams.


The sun is shining and it is suppose to warm up to 60.


My mind says yo be productive today, but gravity is holding me to the couch.

Irritable? You haven't seen irritable until you seen me have steam coming out of my ears because of some passive aggressive comment by my sister. I need a break from her. I wish she'd go on vacation.

And then I spilled a drink on my keyboard last night and I had to shut down and stew about it.

If I survive today without blowing up, I'm going to have a raspberry bliss blizzard for dinner.

I ran out of body wash. I got a bottle out of a fancy gift basket I received on my birthday. The body wash is in a glass bottle.

This made me totally irrational. I don't want to put clothes back on. I don't want to use a glass bottle in the shower. I don't have a container to transfer it into. I just want to take a shower.

And I have no one here to complain to.

I am sick of sewing masks. But I feel like I need to keep doing it. I've supplied family and friends. I've donated some to my doctor's office and my pharmacy. So right now I'm trying to sew enough to fill a box to send to the Navajo Nation. But I'm sick of sewing masks and will take a break after that to sew some fun stuff!

I am trying so hard to be patient with my mother, who is 91 and living with us now. My idea, so no one to blame, but sometimes I get tired of repeating everything and her wanting to know every move I make. I will get through it, it's ok, but sometimes my sister will say she's watching you tube, or painting something, and I barely have an hour to myself. It will be fine. Just whispering.

I have been asking for 3 months what I'll be teaching next year. I just want to say f-it and be done with teaching.
I wonder if my family would miss me if I were gone or just having food prepared?

I'm part of several FB teaching groups. The Google Suite one I belong to has been overrun with people creating Google Classroom headers using bitmojis...and I whisper to myself, "Who has time to create several of these cute, adorable, and life-like reproductions of their actual classrooms with their bitmoji selves doing things like eating popcorn and sitting at their desk with their feet up on it? And are their students actually inspired to do their assignments because this is on their Google Classroom? And, heaven forbid, will I be expected to join the craze and create one for my classrooms? Oh, I'm feeling the pressure."

Zoom church meeting

I just hosted a Zoom meeting with Bible study women. We've met for about 5 years. I feel a strange sense of discouragement when we have discussions. Some members have a sense of being in the church's in-group. I'm going on a walk to blow away these negative thoughts. It most likely is these crazy circumstances that are fostering my negativity.

The sun is supposed to be out all day for a change!

We still have a month to go :-(

My hips and back side are really starting to ache from all this sitting :-(

When will this crazy wind go away?

Still about 15 degrees below normal Temps. I need it to warm up!

Over half my class doing very little and constant offers of help get ignored

Please don't let the fall look like this too...

Iím grouchy I had to put off needed dental work and now Iím in pain and itís an emergency. (Going in this afternoon to get everything fixed.)

Iím grouchy that what I thought was a fun project for students was one many couldnít bother doing or follow directions on. I should have just assigned an essay!

I am really annoyed and upset by the idea we might not go back to school in the Fall, but will continue online learning and teaching. I pray that doesnít come to pass!

I miss my mom and would like to go see her. My sisters, too.

I'm so tired of feeling tense and stressed at the grocery store where I used to enjoy shopping.
It was a relief to see everyone was mask compliant when I went there yesterday evening.
But I still worry. Was I careful enough?

I miss just running to the store and not having to call my mom and my mil to get their lists, shopping with a mask, and then sorting and delivering their stuff.

I am a natural food hoarder. We were new empty nesters this fall and I was just getting comfortable having "less" of everything around. That feeling is 100% gone... I want to buy dehydrated food and MRE's now. (I'm not)

I love my DD(19) but I am very excited she's going to spend the next week with her sister. We need a break from each other.

I just want to eat chips and chocolate.

I am done with this whole thing. I did have dinner in the park with my 2 adult children last night. Holy cow! I miss doing things like that!

Been going in to work a couple hours each day this week in an effort to get a few things done. People stop in and stay their distance, but it is so nice to see them!

Next week I will work every day as we finish up the school year. A part of me is really looking forward to it.

The last week has been awful. I've been overly stressed which impacted my physical health. Budget cuts, grief over closing out the year in such a strange way, Mother's Day, and the unknown have been my triggers.

I'm tired of cooking. I'm tired of doing dishes. I don't want to do laundry. I started to lose it last night and DH took over the dishes, at least for now.

Today is good. Weather is beautiful so the house is opened up and a nice breeze is blowing through. Window shopped at the local fabric store. Picked up snacks at our favorite local market and ice cream shop.

I splurged on a pair of shoes. They arrived today. I am in love.

I might go buy cupcakes from my favorite food truck. It's been over 2 months since I've had my favorite strawberry cupcake.

My FiL died about 7 years ago with very rapidly progressing alzheimers. Over the last year or so I have been seeing several things in DH's behavior, actions, and words that have me concerned. I brought it up to him and asked him to make a dr appt for a consult, just to ask questions. He got really pissed that I would even suggest this. This behavior and action is very similar to his dad at the beginning.

We also own a business in addition to DH and I having full-time jobs. So far we have been able to stay open, but now some shortages of needed supplies might jeopardize that.

DS#1 (almost 32) is a pita. He is critical of everything I do. I am not happy with his comments.

I am so looking forward to the end of the school year.

I really want to retire so that I can work at our business.

This house is a disaster and needs a serious cleaning intervention.
