One of those days...

Did you ever have them? Sure you do. We all do. I'm having one of those days today. I'm crabby, tense and miserable. I see red doors and want to paint them black. Funny thing is, I've just had a lovely summer. The family is all good--healthy, growing and in happy places. Sure there are anxious situations like arthritis and allergy trouble, elephantine ER bills, mammoth tuition bills, choices and consequences, employment dilemmas, a friend to whom I'm confidante in an intolerable situation, etc. Husband is coming out of a decades-old bout of anger and bitterness. So I'm in a place where I'm less physically busy and more emotionally overworked. And there's a change of focus, of interaction and of communication patterns underway.

So what's the deal today? It's a holiday but feels more like a work day. We can't get our much-needed porch project done because it might rain. It will if we start it and won't if we don't. The husband and I would, of course, rather be playing. But the monkey on our backs tells us to get that porch done. And so, being the loving couple we are, we fight about it. I'm mostly serious. Serious that we are a loving couple and not so serious that being so means we fight. I tell myself all happy couples deal with stress by squabbling. But I think that's more misery loves company. Whatever I need to sleep at night, right?

And speaking of which, I'm not. I have sleep apnea which was in remission and which I stopped treating with the CPAP which was doing more harm than good. But it seems to be back now. I'm tired all the time and the dreaded depression which was so nicely manageable is also back and how. So I'm not all sure what's legit frustration with people, what's exhaustion and what's the emotional strain from everything.

I am pretty sure of a few things. 1) taking it to a blog is better than sharing on Facebook. Ain't nobody got time to listen to my whining and I'm not comfy airy dirty laundry even if they had. Been there done that and won't do again. 2) rainy days are heavier because the barometric pressure is lighter and makes me feel more dull and negative. 3) the full moon does really have an impact on emotions but I'm not sure what. 4) something is making me less patient, more irritable and
inclined to pick or engage in a quarrel. 5) I will not go on antidepressants again, period. 6) !!!this too shall pass!!! So we end with the GOOD NEWS!

Sofia Vergara poses nude, talks weight loss, plastic surgery in Women's Health

  Colombian beauty Sofia Vergara did something surprisingly out-of-character. The "Modern Family" star posed nude, as in completely unclothed, for a magazine. So, you're asking, what's odd about a sex symbol baring all? It was the magazine, plus her age and reason for posing that were unexpected. Sofia, 45, shared her assets in Women's Health to encourage women over 40 to accept themselves as they are. The 45-year-old's incredible curves prompted folks to wonder about plastic surgery or rigid dieting.
