Grumpopotamus

28 Jan

That’s pretty much been my state of mind lately. And yes, it is most definitely a word! It may be a Jo-ism (please ALWAYS remember the o in Jo-ism 😉 ) but I use it daily. I just can’t shake the grumpiness. I can actually feel a block in my brain keeping me from not being so pissy. It’s about 2 cm from the front of my forehead. I can feel it and I don’t know how to get rid of it. I was hoping our vacation to Vegas would help break it down. Unfortunately, having my parents tag along (mainly my father) made it much less of a vacation. There were definitely moments where I felt the happiness was getting through, but I think that wound up just being the wall turning into Plexiglas. The happiness was viewable, just not accessible.

I feel so horrible. I’m not being a good wife. Britt is constantly joking around and trying to have fun, it’s just annoying me more than anything. He’s constantly trying to scare me as he does Emberly. That child will be afraid of NOTHING thanks to him. It has put me on edge. I know he’s just having fun, but it makes me uneasy. Getting mad doesn’t help the matter either. I should be able to just laugh it off, but I can’t. It just grates on me and makes everything else worse. I know I’m doing it. I even try and tell myself to lighten up. It doesn’t work.

Now add in Emberly who’s 3rd and 4th teeth are toying with the idea of popping through and our house is just THE place to be. Luckily, most of her ails can be cured with Tylenol. Even a fifth of vodka and crystal light couldn’t cure me. I’ve been trying caffeine. The second cup of coffee this morning only made my head spin. Of course I’m craving a Mt. Dew now, but I’m afraid that would make my entire body just shake. Sex would be another option, but it’s hard to get in the mood when you’re also feeling yourself get fat. It’s fun times people!

I wonder why no one is calling me to hang out?

      And I with you. As long as we aren’t surrounded by bank workers wearing annoying blinky pins!

    I know exactly how you feel. Exactly. I guess that’s how I came up with the word, LOL! I’ll be feeling that way and Chris will be happy and laughing and that’ll irritate me because he should be just as miserable as I. I’m thinking it has a lot to do with the winter weather. Life is always more depressing when it is cold outside. We had a warm day last week where it hit 70 degrees and I could drive around with a window down – totally boosted my spirits. I’ll try to “win” the mega-millions today and take you on a real vacation to somewhere warm and tropical and all our problems will be solved 🙂

      I keep wanting to win the mega millions, but apparently you have to actually buy a ticket to be in the running. When you do win, I think you and I should go on the vacation and Britt and Chris can hang out together and complain about us!

    i didn’t know about the Vodka and Crystal Light mix! Is it awesome?

    • insertwittytitleheremomstired January 29, 2010 at 12:38 pm #

      Is it awesome, she asks. Um, only if you like Crystal Light. No matter what amount of vodka you put in, you only taste the Crystal Light. It’s dangerous.

      Thanks. I’ve really enjoyed reading your blog lately. And not that it was crap before, I just started reading it 😀
      Now, teach me how to use my camera 😉 I have a Canon Rebel XSi. There’s something wrong with the lens. It won’t autofocus. But that’s neither here nor there. I love your pictures.

    Wait a minute! Did I write this? I’m always so irritated. Could it be the stress of maintaining a household, an 11 month old who is cranky a lot of the time or trying to climb up on everything and falling? Could it be a husband who also loves to joke and have fun but forgets about this things called “cleaning”? Crap, no wonder I have no friends!

      This is exactly why we need to live closer together. Our husbands could be their immature assholes together while you and I drink wine and watch our kids fall down. I swear, at this rate, Emberly’s going to be bipolar. Happy and smiley one minute, crying like it’s the end of the world the next.
