I need to bitch. What, I've done a lot of bitching lately? *sigh* Yes I know. I don't know what it is. I was all set for this to be a GREAT YEAR! The year! Good things and all that. Seems like it's just been one damn thing after another.

The job's great though. That HARD THING from before? I so don't miss it. I don't miss taking Advil's every day cuz my head was pounding so hard (think it was stress? me too) at the end of the day. I don't miss feeling rotten and grouchy and just ugh. Nope not one bit. I'm quite happy to be done with the whole lot of that.

On the other hand, we have today. Today went by pretty fast. We got an ice storm last night which yielded a nice 2 hour delay. Which translates into missing 2 reading groups in the morning and let me tell you, that's a great day right there. School was good. I had a nice walk home. It was raining, but it was 50 deg..and can you really complain about that in January in the great north? I think not.

I got home. Did some chores, did some other stuff, checked email... so far so good right? And then I walked around and shut all the blinds etc, as it's getting dark out. And when I went into my guest room to shut the blinds.. it happened! I turned that little spiny handle..and WATER! WET! Running down my arm!!! What the hell?! I don't know where the leak is coming from. I don't know if it's the window.. or the wall..or what? We just did slat-board work over the paint job in the fall... there should be NO LEAKS. I am NOT HAPPY! I feel like this year is out to get me. Maybe I should go crawl into bed and stay there until next year. No one would notice..right?

*I* would definately notice if you were gone, and I'm quite positive I'm not the only one....but I think I'd be tempted, too, if I were you. xoxoxox sending lots of love your way and praying for better, brighter days for you in the NEAR FUTURE.

I so know what you mean. I was waiting for after the holidays for things to slow down so I could get some rest and more importantly get a lot of stuff done. Well, let me tell you, that ain't happening my friend. It has been a month of misery so far. This was supposed to be my time, right? And I feel like I can't handle one more thing...a leak in my house would send me right over the edge right now. And I'm tired of constantly bitching about it. Hang in there and I'll try to too. Wish you were closer so we could commiserate over a cup of tea!

*sigh* I'm tired of it too. I'm glad I have my blog to bitch in.. some days I feel like a raving lunny. We need a cyber bitch fest...or a chat! T- try and get some rest. I wish I could come help you out (and sneak in a belly rub too!)

Well, Bethers, did you find out yet where it's coming from? I'm hoping it was something easy to fix, not a hole in the roof or some other such catastrophe that would be even worse. Crossing my fingers for you.
