I’ve been the Meredith Brooks lyrics “I hate the world today” all week. The combination of little sleep, stress, oppressive heat, and frustrating students have left me with bags under my eyes and shaking an angry fist at the universe. F-you world!
I’ve been grumbling, grouching, slumping my way to the weekend with the hopes that if I made it to Friday, everything would be all better….and then I woke up at 4:45 this morning for no other reason than my body hating me. Even Cooper has been in a bad mood all week and pouting and giving me the cold shoulder by hiding out under the bed.
Determined to snap myself out of this funk, I am taking the afternoon off and curling up with a book. No chores, no work, no e-mail checking. Just escaping into another world and not coming back until I like people again. If that doesn’t work, only 15 days until my vacation!
