Mad World

Things Ticking Me Off Lately:
1. Respiratory viruses. We've all been sick off and on since 3 days after the girl started pre-school. We have gone through 4 big boxes of Kleenex and 2 rounds of cold meds.

2. The unknown ailment that wakes my son up every 4 hours. Is it teething? Nightmares? Is he concerned about the state of the economy?

3. That Ohio is a swing state. I see back to back to back ads for Obama and Romney on every channel everyday. Nothing kills my Big Bang Theory buzz like politics. So ready for November elections.

4. In a similar vein...Facebook political rantings. Like when one of my friends posts hypocritical shit about being pro gun, pro-life, and anti- Obama, when I know in fact that if that was truly the case he would have 2 more children than he does right now....amnesia, perhaps? Or just convenience of a slogan. Either way, yeah, I'm about done with political insanity.

5. Work. The {change} is happening, but nothing is set in stone, and no real plans are in motion, and no real answers to questions can be given.....yada yada yada. I told my new boss 'well, I'll just go on like business as usual until someone tells me otherwise'. He said 'good idea'. It's nice to have a vision, but execution is everything Mmmmkay? And I grow weary of talking about the unknown change with Jesus and everyone. What's done is done. I'm going back to work with eyes in the back of my head. Ready for more science and less gossip.

6. No free time. Zero. Zilch. I am laying in bed typing this on my phone praying to God the wee one isn't about to wake up. I can't recall the last time I had a true hour to myself. I keep telling myself its temporary. The kids will grow up soon enough, the colleagues will not drop by my office every 10 minutes, but in the interim, its tough. Tougher than I ever thought it would be.

Well that's my rant. I would add more but I need to call it a night before little man wakes up in a fit of crying rage in a couple of hours. Hope all is well with you guys. Happy Fall!
