Black Friday

I had to call a sick day today. Well, actually, it was yesterday. (Thursday) I woke up feeling like I had been run over by a semi truck. Spending the day in bed is no easy thing for me, but I genuinely felt like poo, and things around here have turned into a 3 ring circus over the past week. I am sick of dealing with Nick and his girlfriend. They're both getting on my nerves. Nick and his anxiety, Jennifer and her immaturity. I could go into a whole big rant and rave about it, but I just don't have the energy.

I slept until 4pm this afternoon, when Jake and Heather were due home from school. Since then, I've determined that getting out of bed was a huge mistake. The events of this evening have made this past week seem like a walk in the park. I would really like to go back to bed and shut off my brain for a while; Unfortunately, after sleeping all day, I can't seem to sleep anymore. It's now 4AM, and even though I feel even worse, my body refuses nod off to dream land. I've tried everything.

I have a feeling things are going to be ugly today. I'm cranky, I feel like shit, and really I'm pissed off at all the other (alleged) adults in this house. The whole lot of them are due a major ass kicking - They have all pissed me off this evening in a big, big way. It's quite likely that there will be blood.

I'm going to try, one more time, to catch a few hours sleep before I have to get up and send the kids off to school.

Wish me luck,
Susan

Awww hon, sounds like you need a personal day or two from life. Hope today was better than you feared and that you don't feel so rough. Sending hugs your way.

I lost my crackers this morning as well, because I am grumpy and have run out of patience and I desperately need just time to myself for 10 minutes!!

Sending you a hug and hope things are ok....and yeah, maybe it won't hurt to kick some butts to get them to snap out of whatever they are doing!!
