I'll add you to my list.

Seriously. Is it just the time of year?

Why in the heck is everyone so...testy?

I'm pointing the finger at myself also, mind you. I'm SO not in the mood for the bucketfuls of crap that have been flung my way lately. So much so, in fact, that someone stopped me in the hall today to inform me that a document has a funked up table (and I care about this why?) and I politely informed him that I would take down his name and pray for him because that's about all I can do at this point.

I'm snippy myself because of various things, none of which are very important, but all of which seem to be bothering me. I'm annoyed that my mother-in-law never responded to my very heartfelt card. Not that I thought she would, necessarily, but then again, maybe I had a small amount of hope that she would. I'm sad because I would really like to go home and go directly to bed without passing go or collecting $200 because, once again, insomnia has become my bff and I can't get that bitch to go away. But I can't. My children, bless them, are getting their brown belts in Taekwondo tonight and Lord knows I can't miss that. And speaking of $200? Looking at our budget for next year is depressing me to the point that I feel like I can't breathe. I guess the fact that my husband made $27000 less this year than last year has something to do with that.

But what can I do about any of that? Nothing.

And really. REALLY. There are so many other things going on. Real, important things that actually matter. Like the craptacular economy and those poor people who are losing their jobs. Like the freaking never-ending war. The little children who will go to bed hungry tonight. The women dying of breast cancer.

The other stuff is just minor.

Still.

I wish someone would put me on their prayer list.




It couldn't hurt.

you are on MY prayer list!! I know EXACTLY what you mean. I get all bummed out over stuff that seem INSURMOUNTABLE to me and then kind of have to kick myself and say HELLOO!!! So many people have it SO MUCH WORSE!!! Then I think, let me wallow in it anyway. It's not a contest - I don't have to win the "woe is me" war to be allowed to be sad over it.

this probably doesn't make a lick of sense.

Consider it done. Cuz I really do think you are fabulous and stuff.

Robyn said...

You got it. I don't think you need it, but you got it.

Please, put me on yours. I really need it.

All you gotta do is ask.

Captain Steve said...

I can do that.

SJ said...

Ask and you shall receive! I've added you to 'my' list....

Hang in there sweetie!

About that insomnia of yours, have you ever tried melatonin? You can find it in the vitamin section of the grocery store, it is very safe and non-addictive. My pediatrician has suggested it for my kids. They have stuff going on that makes it very hard for them to wind down at night and melatonin has been a godsend for us.

Feel better sweetie!

We all need a prayer list these days... and you are on mine.

Bethany said...

Already there, babe!

Well, my estranged family did apologize and I accepted it (though in my heart it's hard to forgive such horrible behavior - I hope they read back on my blog and SEE it) and now I'm scared to death. They're already doing some crazy shit again.

PEOPLE DON'T CHANGE. ACCCCCKKKKK.

Done!

Of course I can pray for you, and I know exactly how you feel. We just found out that next year, merit increases will be an average of 2%. And given that I'm already close to the top of my payscale means mine will probably by less. It all bites. But you're right - what can you do?

Tarasview said...

yup, you're on my prayer list too. And since we're asking... feel free to put me on yours! We are so *$%#^&*@#* broke it is crazy.

Oh, and by the way? I hate all the clutter I have too. And would be happy not to get anything more for Christmas.

Except a full night of uninterrupted sleep. That would be awesome.

KrustyLynn said...

I'll be praying. :)

PaintedPromise said...

i SO hear you... while you can't sleep, are you visiting my life? because, what you are saying, i could say...

Alpha Dude 1.5 said...

I pray for you quite a lot already.
And I thank God that you are my friend.

But I'll pray for you even more now, okay?

Bless you times two, and stuff.
