I am in a foul mood. I don't know if it is the unceasing gloom of winter or cabin fever or the flip-flop of middle-age hormones. All I know is that my already weak and belabored teeth are being ground to nubs as I try to keep from losing it.
I just feel so very irritable. Every little thing is on my nerves, though, in my defense, they are really annoying little things.
Like, the giant globs of slushy mud I found all over my bathroom- on the rug, in the sink, ON THE WALLS!!! I guess someone came in from sledding covered in mud and decided to share.
Or, there is my son, who constantly teases my youngest. Normal stuff, right? But, I bet what isn't normal is the ear splitting, high-pitch, 135 decibel shriek that she emits when he looks at her cross-eyed. This can happen a dozen times an hour.
I could go on for forever, but I am sure you get the idea. We need a break in the weather. Yes, they play outside a lot, especially for winter. However, when it isn't freezing and wet, we all get outside for most of everyday.
All, I know is that with the number of snow days they are having here, kids will likely lose a month of summer break. Which is going to mess up my kid's summer camp, which will ruin their summer. Oh, winter...you kinda suck sometimes.
