No one likes a complainer.....

....but it's my blog so I guess that gives me the privilege of a grumpy day.  It reminds me of my friend Britt's little boy Alex. He woke up one morning and after about an hour of whining looked at his mom and said "I'm fussy."
Yeah well, I'm fussy today. I didn't sleep well at all. Whichever side I laid on became stuffy.  When I woke up on my left side, it felt like that whole side of my face was ginormous. Sinus congestion....ugh!  I pride myself that I rarely get sick. Maybe that's my problem... too prideful.
I went to bed last night and left a sink of dirty dishes that had to be reckoned with this morning, not to mention the pile of laundry that was still on my couch.  Seriously, my family is getting a steal of a deal on a maid. Last I checked I get paid.....nothing!

I got on the scales yesterday and realized that there is a reason why my pants feel tighter.....I'm steadily gaining back all the weight I lost last spring.  I also realized that I gave away all my "fat" clothes and that I have about 2 months to get back into my spring/summer wardrobe from last year.  I have not run in two weeks.  I think that always makes me feel bad too. Moral of this story.....in your excitement of weight loss, don't give away your fat girlclothes, pack them up and put them in the attic.

Having teenagers is tough. I feel like they are slipping through my fingers.  I want to hold on to them, and they do not want to be held on to.  Do you ever want to hit the pause button?  Knowing that every day brings changes, and while that is not bad, it'll never be the way it is today?

So Alex, this Tuesday morning you are not alone. I'm a little fussy too.  Can't quite put my finger on it. Tomorrow will be a better day.  Thanks for listening to me whine, I feel better.

Your entitled to be a little fussy - I have been fussy all of February so far! Hope your fussies don't stay for too long.

You're allowed to be fussy every now and then. Of course, on my blog I just listed you as one of the most positive people I know! Hope your day turned around quickly!

Fussy day was Tuesday for me. A life of ease on the ski trip. I had Noah to keep up with and sometimes Nick, but still. When I got back it was: Bath x3,bottles x2 laundry for x5. Noah made a comment when we were leaving, "I want to stay here forever!" ha, I now agree! I missed my babies by Sunday and was ready to see them, not so much all the work that comes with it! :(
