I am so cranky.  Up and down with depression & stress.  Ok, then miserable, then better, then don't want to move ... I'm taking Prozac ... maybe it's time to try the Cymbalta my dr suggested .....
I have about 198746 tiny little things driving me nuts today ... from a new cold sore on my lip, to the fact that my husband just left to go to a super bowl party.  I have to go to work tomorrow, have to take my kids with me, they hate that, mom is mad at me for not calling in, who needs their mom mad at them .. no matter that I AM 38!  no plans for supper, sore everywhere, feel like i'm coming down with a cold, son # 2 is mad because I won't let him go snow boarding tomorrow with a family i don't know .. he's NEVER been before ... they go all the time, so are experienced ... we have no gear ... and it costs over $50 for the lift ticket and rentals ...  and since i let son # 1 go to GF's house tonight, I am MEAN for not letting him go to the ski resort tomorrow.   i have been snowed in all weekend, not able to go to town, obviously .. so don't have materials for class tomorrow .. supposed to make Valentine's mailboxes for the class ... looks like we'll punt and decorate brown lunch sacks instead.  found out i have a staff meeting tomorrow at 6:00 ... hubby not happy because i asked him to get the kids from my job (since they will be with me from 7:00 AM til he picks them up) and he doesn't want to miss our Dave Ramsey class.  AND he's miffed because I didn't do his GYM laundry yet this weekend .... and needs it before 5:00 AM tomorrow.  It's ALWAYS done on time.  I have NEVER 'forgotten' it in 8 years.!!!!!  Like EVERYBODY ELSE'S freaking laundry in this house!!!  You know, I still have all the same "job's" associated with our home and family care AND a new full time job, and it's always expected that I will take care of stuff.  It's so ANNOYING!!!  He was GOING to the party tonight, then not sure, then was, then asked me to call and confirm it was still on due to the blizzard, then AFTER I did, I told him I wasn't taking the kids because it's always so late and he is the only one who likes football, And Clara has food allergies and it's hard to take her to parties where she can't eat anything, and it's hard for the kids to entertain themselves that long and be quiet and not disturb people watching the game, so then he says he's NOT going since I won't.  and THEN changed his mind AGAIN.  DANG!!!!  And then on his way to this darned party, he said "I'm supposed to take a snack.  What have we got?"  We told our daughter she couldn't go (she knows these folks and loves them), but then he invited son #2 to goIN FRONT OF CLARA  ... since he was sulking about missing out on snowboarding .... ARGHHHH.....  I didn't kill him, but I thought about it for a minute. or two.  THen ... on  the way out the door, he asked if he could take MY car over there?!?!?!  WHAT?!?!?!?  He is nuts. 
grumble moan fuss .... sorry ... if I don't absolutely EXPLODE tonight it will be a miracle. 
so ... anybody want to tell me something to make me laugh?  it can be a really DUMB joke ....  I'm a blonde .. I get those jokes.  lol

Please, no jokes.  We had a problem with that a while back.  But, here is a site about fibro fog that will make you chuckle.

Just want you to know that I'm thinking about you. You do have your hands full. Sometimes I miss the days of my kids growing up and the busyness, but for some reason now I'm thankful that my husband and I are just home (empty nest). Some day you will have an empty nest and things might be a little too quiet. I know you need a joke, but your post was really pretty entertaining to me. Thanks I needed it. One thing that really helped me then and now - was asking if what was happening had anything to do with eternity. Or will it matter a year from now. You're going to make it. It's time for hubby to wash his own gym clothes. My husband still likes to pretend he doesn't know how to run the washing machine. (But I know better)

Boy did that bring back some memories of the days of raising a family. smhair  You know there were somethings my children and husband just knew better than to do or ask me and washing his gym clothes would have been one of those things that my DH would have been smart enough to ask me to do on a day like you had. skull
Hope it gets better.
luv and hugs
