If I was one of the seven dwarfs...

Today, I'd be Grumpy...I've been pretty grumpy for several days. Maybe it's the rainy weather, maybe it's the rash I've had due to an allergic reaction to my deodorant...that was the pits let me tell you! (get it?) , maybe it's my hormones (and that's a whole other post, let me tell you!)...I don't know, but I've just been in a funk. It seems that almost every night, I have felt incredibly anxious - almost like a panic attack. The worst night, my arms and legs were numb, my throat felt as if it were closing, and I could have sworn an elephant had taken up residence on my chest. It scares me, you know? I've been down this road and I don't like it. So tonight, I decided that instead of sitting here moaning about all that is frustrating me, I am going to write about the things that have brought me joy!

1. I LOVE MY CLASS! There are about 4 boys in my class that keep me in stitches. The other day, they had gym. Coach always lets them get a drink of water before the end of class. I noticed that not only had they had a drink, but they had apparently taken a shower in the fountain! I decided to let it slide and walked on up the hall. We stopped at one point and I was about to get on to the group for talking when I looked back and those boys had all "fixed" their wet hair. One was SPIKED all over, one was Alfalfa style, one was a mowhawk and the other was just all brushed forward. They were all looking at me - trying to stay so serious. I tried to hold it together, but I lost it...thought I was going to roll on the floor laughing! How could I be mad then?

2. My brother and sister in law are coming home this weekend! I haven't seen them in 3 years! It will be so good to visit with them!

3. My Max and I took a little nap on the couch today. When I woke up, he was wedged between the couch back and a pillow...all nestled in and cozy.

How could I be grumpy looking at that sweet face???

3. My friend, Sydney, and I have gotten to spend quite a bit of time together this week. Last night, I went over to her house for a bit...we just sat on the couch and talked...nothing earth shattering, but so nice to just be with a friend. It's nice to have friends you can have fun with no matter what you're doing...or not doing! Today, we met for coffee after school. After having a grumpy day, hanging out with her made me happy!

4. Tonight, Mom and I ran to the mall and got a quick dinner. we had such a relaxing night...I told her stories of the kids at school and the funny things they say and do ( like give me their left over cereal as a gift!)...It was just a fun night.

I don't feel like Grumpy anymore...I don't feel anxious...I DO feel I think I will go to bed. Thanks for listening...Hope we can all be "Happy" tomorrow!
