PMS Fairy Attacks!

So, that's why my ranting is up and my coping skills are down! I should have looked at the calendar earlier. I woke at 3 a.m. feeling so tired, so achy, so totally out of sorts, and could not go back to sleep. After tossing for an hour, I gave up trying. I don't know why I'm going to work today. Oh, that's right, because there's an answer due in a major case and I'm thinking Boss might not remember. He may be the only human being I know with a right to feel shittier than I do, he had TWO very long road trips back-to-back.

I will try to curb my ranting and perhaps talk about more sane things this weekend. I need to move a lot of stuff that will be in the way of the carpet installers on Monday. I need to finish the endless touch-up painting, then say screw it, that's as good as it's going to get. I have yoga tomorrow, and I plan to leave work early and hit the gym this afternoon. My stomach has been in knots all week - I am not prone to stress stomachaches but these are not ordinary times. Today I will baby my tummy with homemade yogurt and rooibos tea, and exercise, and watch a movie this evening, and knit. I haven't knitted or crocheted all week - I feel like this week was just sucked away in a gust of Other People's Problems.

I need a long vacation, far, far away.

Did you do something good for yourself after all?

Need a break far far away....as long as you don't also want five star luxury, blue skies and sun daily and can cope with driving on the right side of the road which happens to be the left:0) There's a small country called Wales you could always visit where there's a spare bed for intrepid travellers:0) Long time reader first time commenter.

Sounds so nice, but I'm not sure I can afford Ft. Myers Beach! :-)
