It's been one of those weekends. Nothing has really gone wrong and honestly I have nothing to complain about. But I've just been kinda pissy. Plus, because I know I have no real reason to be pissy, I've been trying to mask my mood which is making me even more irritated. Fortunately, blog land is an excellent place to air your petty grumbles since someone is always willing to listen.
Random Things Putting Me in a Bad Mood
*Jay's been working so much lately, which I should be used to by now because this always happens when we move somewhere new, but it's been extra frustrating here because we live in this cool town that has so much fun stuff to do, and my husband's never around to enjoy it with me. I know this is only a temporary problem and he's already hired some new people so his schedule will loosen up soon, but I'm just kind of wallowing at the moment because he was supposed to be off today, I had made loose plans for us to do something as a family, but he ended up having to work.
*Last night I couldn't sleep so I watched some of Showgirls. Why did I do this? This movie was comically bad. Seriously, boobs everywhere. Constant, gratuitous boob shots. How do people have everyday conversations with their breasts hanging out?
*I'm on the hunt for new jeans. Most of you remember that I bought no new clothes last year. This year I've only bought a few things here and there. I need jeans. (Well, as much as someone can need jeans.)Specifically, I've been on the lookout for a new pair to wear for dressier times (i.e. not the grocery store.) Um, jeans are really scary looking right now. Skinny jeans with tapered legs? High waists? No thank you. Strange washes and colors? When did acid wash come back? Ugh. The whole process has left me overwhelmed and feeling older than I am.
*I haven't gotten used to my oven. It's electric, I'm used to gas. Most everything I've baked since moving here has come out just a bit off in one way or another. Very frustrating.
*My son has a new obsession with Beavis and Butthead. He's watched hours of it this weekend.
*I've been craving bagels. Good, chewy bagels. This morning we went to the bagel chain nearest our apartment. I was not impressed. I need to find a Jewish deli. Do you think I'm asking too much?
Again, I know all this sounds totally whiny and I really have so little to complain about and I'm otherwise quite happy with my life right now. It's just been one of those days. Honestly, it felt really good to get it all out. Maybe now I can focus on the positive.
