You know how sometimes...

...you go to bed and everything is feeling A-Okay...

...but when you get up in the morning everything feels wrong...

...and you try to figure out if it was because you were having a dream that contained alligators swimming in chocolate milk and your Grandmother pointing her bony finger at you (seriously, that's enough detail...trust me, it was a bad, bad dream...)!!!???

So you get a cup of coffee and try to shake off the grumpy feeling...

...but it clings to you in a non-flattering way like the t-shirt you wore last summer when you weighed 20 pounds less...

...and you just want to be left alone...



...instead of seeing a single, living soul including your dog and/or your husband?

AND...

...although you drop pointed hints that it would be GREAT if you had the house to yourself...


Your husband and/or your dog won't leave.

SO...

You try to avoid them, but eventually you get crankier...

...and you really, really want to make the dog and/or your husband a participant in your misery and crabbiness...

...but the dog is looking pretty cute, so you CAN'T kick him...

...and your husband is being pretty sweet, so you CAN'T yell at him...

Acccck!

ACCCCCCKKKK!!!

I hate when that happens!

How is a girl supposed to be miserable when her dog is being cute and her husband is being nice?

Acccckk!!!!

ACCCCCKKKKKK!!!!

It's not fair, I tell ya.

It's wrong.

So, so wrong.

...

...

And I'm just wondering if anything like this scenario has ever happened to you?

I'm only asking for research purposes.

Because I, personally, have never, ever had that happen to me.

And I was just curious.

Sigh...

Ha! And now you know why I take walks. :)

Diane said...

You crack me up.

I recently took up gardening but my boys still find me out there!

I found the bathroom is the best place to hide, with loud playing music so I don't hear pounding on the door :-)

Carol said...

I hide out in a corner....telling everyone I'm scrappin'!

Jeanie said...

If that ever happened to me (and I'm just saying "if") I would probably be mean to the cute dog and the nice husband....or I would leave and go to Starbucks.

What a great posting and a great find! I stumbled my way on to your blog through Theresa's and was simply captivating. No I've never felt this way but am thoroughly impressed that you could describe it so well ~ what a kick!

Are we on the same page today or what? I am soooo cranky. Mr. VZ is studying to give a presentation and (when he is not studying) is on a day after day marathon of watching the Burn Notice.

To add insult to injury, he won't turn on the air conditioner (gonna top 100 degrees today) AND the air conditioner has gone out at work.

Gonna go Summer Hot Fits Postal!

Yep, a lot. I immerse myself in a goos book. I have depression so I never know if is the disease or just a bad day. I try to work with beauty and color which also picks me up, painting, photography. But I don't always feel like it. Is this an answer to your question? Xo Jenny

Judie said...

Actually, that never has happened to me either, you nut! Hahahaaha!!!!

Jo said...

yeah, never happened to me ... i've never had to flee the house just to get some private time, why would i, they would just find me on my cell phone ... the invention that has completely destroyed any sense of privacy .... lol!

Theresa said...

Never happened to me either, wink wink;). Have a blessed day dear Jenny, hugs.

Kim said...

If I had a day like that I'd start by trying to read while reclining on the bed. And by "read", I really mean look at a page, then take a nap.

Then, if the feeling persisted, I'd probably get my purse and car keys and get a drive-thru beverage and drive to a park that overlooks the Mississippi River...it's quiet there, I imagine.

I'm so glad you helped me organize my thoughts on this...ok, so maybe I've tested my plan a few times. Thanks anyway.

ain't for city gals said...

That happened every day when I started "mental pause"...not so much anymore, thank goodness. I always said if I was my husband I would have gotten rid of me a long time ago...xo

Country Dreaming said...

I'm laughing to hard to comment.
Just saying...

Ms. A said...

That NEVER happens to me, I no longer have a dog. For research purposes, if it did happen... I'd just go back to bed, not that I EVER do that, or am ever grumpy, or cranky.

Annesphamily said...

I think this happens to all of us! You spin a wonderful story!

Gail said...

We all have our private corners here and when we feel this way, we do retreat. Sometimes someone being nice just makes it worse...sit, stay, I am going to my corner.

Dazee Dreamer said...

Oh no, that never ever happens to me. Honestly. I'm never grouchy, mean spirited, or heaven forbid, just want to be alone.

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Oh yes, it has happened. I hate that feeling of something hanging over my head and not remembering what it is. "I don't want to be alone; I just want to be left alone"! laurie

letscutthecrap said...

I think everyone has a day like this sometime but not to me (ha ha). Guess you'll have to hide in the bathroom or take a walk...I used to hide in the bathroom.

Hope tomorrow is a better day.

Sue said...

You have just described my life as a menopausal woman.

Thank you.

;)

Busy Bee Suz said...

Oh yeah...I understand this.
If only you weren't surrounded by all the cuteness!

Sue (Someones Mom) said...

Oh yes...I know exactly these kind of days. I warn my husband to just stay out of my way...I figure if I warn him, whatever happens I'm not responsible for...right?

The card about Nike was such a sweet surprise. You are truly one of a kind, thank you:)

Splendid Little Stars said...

um. It's possible.

Judy SheldonWalker said...

I'll tell you how, my dog was stolen, and my hubby is so ... grumpy. But I can take the laptop over to the kid's house. There are 4 and they all have a new baby, so I can get my fill of cuteness!
