Last night I slept on the couch. Well, actually, I wouldn’t call what I did sleeping. It was more like coughing…and coughing…aaaaand coughing some more. You see how considerate I am? I didn’t want to keep Adrian awake.
At midnight, I finally resorted to taking some powerful cough medicine that had been prescribed to J awhile back. It knocked her out for 12 hours straight, and although I didn’t want that necessarily, I was getting desperate. Unfortunately, it didn’t help as quickly as I would’ve liked because it took until about 2:00 in the morning for the coughing to cease. I’m not even sick, really. This cough has been haunting me on and off for about two months now. Go away, Cough!
Needless to say I woke up a tad cranky. Little things like my kids taking their time getting ready while we were running a little late for music class made me – shall we say – ticked off. I wouldn’t have wanted anyone eavesdropping on our household this morning, that’s for sure.
Then I was sitting at music class waiting to pick up the kids and listening to three of the moms talking. Just listening because I was in no mood to participate. Then, wouldn’t you know, one mom started to seriously “down” people who write in blogs!! “People who write their personal business for the whole world to read” as she put it while she mimicked someone tipping and tapping at their keyboard. “I just don’t get it”, she said. Now, I normally would’ve cheerfully admitted my blogging hobby, and pointed out the various benefits. As well as asked her if she’d ever enjoyed reading a biography. Because, personally, I don’t think blogging is much different. Well, except that I’m not famous and no one would pay to read my blog. At any rate, with the mood I was in it would have likely come out in a snarky tone along with a bitchy expletive throw in for good measure. And then I’d be ostracized because these are very nice religious ladies whose ears might have burned off at the sound off my mean spirited cursing.
Have you ever found yourself in a position where you’re defending your blogging
addiction habit hobby? If so, out of interest, whaddya say? It’s a happened a few times to me. Sometimes I go into my reasons, other times I don’t.
Thankfully, this time, I managed to keep my mouth shut and after class, the kids and I went sledding with friends. It was nice to get outside. It even cleared my head a bit. It was good for the kids as well because they’re tired, too. They played hard this weekend during our sleep-over Junior Forest Wardens event.
I’m sure it’ll just take a couple of night’s sleep to for us all to catch up and be back to normal. Then, I might even provide a nice cheery post and not the complaining sort that I have been writing lately. Hey, you know what I need? One of those purple complaining bracelets but in blogger form. If you haven’t heard of them go here: A Complaint Free World. I could switch the logo (that doesn’t exist) from one side of my blog to the other each time I complain.
But then I wouldn’t know how to make the logo, and my blog only has one sidebar, and it’d take too much effort, and….hmmm. I would’ve had to switch it three times with just that one sentence!! I guess I need to get me one of those bracelets. 😉
Well, I’m off to pamper myself with some chocolate and fluff tv. Mmmm. My comfy chair and cozy blanket are calling to me.
