10/20/2015 Grumpy Tuesday

Today I recognize that I am in a bad mood. My work was beyond frustrating today, my grandmother is still terribly ill (some messages relayed through various channels make it sound like she will not live long, others make it sound like she is slightly better, etc), my husband is grouchy because of his work, and I just had a hard time wanting to be nice to people. I know that I am blessed and have nothing to complain about in the grand scheme of things, but everyone is allowed to have an "off" kind of day, and today is one of those days for me. To vent a little: I find it very aggravating to listen to the petty and useless things that people complain and make in to such big deals. I find people's level of selfishness to be just astonishing. I think that people tend to only care about other people when they are directly affected, and just to care and check on how someone is doing is just something people don't do anymore and I don't think that is right. Lots of times people don't care about anyone unless they want something from that person, or if the other person NOT doing a thing will mean more responsibility for them. Otherwise they could care less, and although maybe it is human nature, it is very discouraging to me. My final gripe is that people nit pick things to death...some things that truly just don't matter just get picked to death, and I really just don't have it in me to care right now, so it is harder to be patient and listen.

In other news: My son had the first day of his testing to be in the gifted program today. He said he thought it went well. He has been tested 3 other times in different grades but never quite made it. He is always disappointed in himself if he doesn't make it, but I don't want him to be put in there if he isn't ready for it, so I'm ok with it.

I got my flu shot today. My arm hurts worse this year than it did in previous years from the vaccine. I wonder what the difference is. Maybe my coworker stabbed me extra brutally with the needle this year, or maybe my muscle was more tense... who knows?

After work I mailed my dad's birthday package to him and was told that it will even be delivered on time! I found a cool picture frame and had some pictures of the grandkids and his dog printed and put in that...it is a neat style of frame that will suit my parent's house-they are more outdoorsy type of people and this frame looks a little rustic without being cheesy...so I am happy about that and will consider it a success!

Ok-time to go sleep off this grump that I have slipped in to!

    Today I feel grumpy. I know that part of that is because I did not sleep well. Also people who are self centered are really dragging me down. Other…

    Last night I had a terrible dream that Abby fell down the stairs. I was close enough to see but far enough away from her that I couldn't stop it. She…
