Looks Like Someone Has a Case of the Mondays

I am super grumpy today. So grumpy that I'm even annoying myself.
  • I could not stay focused at work to save my life. All I could do was stare at a Excel spreadsheet with no interest in actually doing anything with it.
  • The time change means it's super dark when I get home from work. I haven't gotten used to it yet. It's so depressing.
  • It was pouring rain when I left work today. Guess where my umbrella was. If you picked on the passenger seat of my car in the parking lot of the park and ride then you get a gold star. I had to use my jacket to protect THE PURSE leaving my hair to fend for itself against the elements. I was wet and cold the whole way home.
  • My apartment is so messy, but dishes be damned. I'm so not cleaning up tonight.
  • Kaeli gets out of school at 3:40pm. I get home around 6:00pm. Her grandma picks her up from school and keeps Kaeli in the afternoons. I realize how lucky I am to have this help. BUT - Why in the hell does Kaeli never have her homework done when I pick her up? She is there everyday for 2 freaking hours, and, as far as I can tell, she just watches TV and eats junk food the whole time. It's so frustrating. She goes to bed at 8:00pm, which means that we have 2 short hours for homework, dinner, shower, and reading. I barely get to just play with her during the week. It would be so nice to have a little extra time to just hang out, but, no matter how many times I mention it, the homework never gets done. Her grandma is a teacher for fuck's sake! Shouldn't school work be a priority?

I am so crawling into bed early tonight and forgetting that today happened!

I'm so sorry honey! I've had days like this recently and you are right - leave the dishes for another night, and cuddle up and go to bed early.

And even though your mom is doing you a huge favor...I think you could explain to her what a huge help it would be for homework to be at least started when you pick up your daughter. It's not an outrageous request in any way.

(Glad the purse is okay though!)

I should have clarified that it is her dad's mom...which of course changes the dynamic completely!!!

What Monday? What are you talking about? .. lol,

Sounds like a shit day, it's a shame that you don't get time with Kaeli, worse even that she doesn't seem to really understand. But again what Monday do you speak of? *Tomorrow, tomorrow, there's always tomorrow* !! xo

Sounds like a shitty day all around but the good news is that by the time you read this it will be a new day and hopefully you'll be feeling better. Homework is a big frustration for us too even though we are home a lot, but its just because I try to give Rayden time to just veg after school. A lot of mornings he just finishes it at the breakfast table while his brothers are finishing their breakfast.

In any case, the winter blahs are upon us all. I think its time you do something extra special to try to lift that mood and get you through the next little while. What if you and Kaeli were to plan a trip to see a movie and grab a special diner on the weekend? It would give you two some real quality time together and maybe something to look forward to.
