Bad Mood

Happy May Day! I'm not even sure what the significance of May Day is, but it sounds good. Spring finally showed up here in KC and it will be sticking around just long enough for a good tease and then go back down into the 30's tonight. Awesome.

I woke up in the worst mood ever yesterday. I'm not even sure what the cause was, but as a result, everything irritated me. Needless to say, it was not the best day I've ever had. Also the reason for no post yesterday. I did want to do the Prom link up with Erin, but I don't know what happened to my prom picture. I'm sure it is buried in a box in the garage somewhere.

I did get to go play Dodgeball last night for Corporate Challenge, though and that was fun. I wish our team had done better. I also wish that I was as athletic as I trick myself into thinking I am. Nothing like throwing the ball directly into the hands of the other team. I might as well have lobbed it underhanded.

I seem to be hyper aware lately that I don't really have any IRL friends. I have work acquaintances and I have all my wonderful blogger friends, but no one that I can really call up and say "Let's go get a drink" or "let's go shopping". I miss that. All of my old college friends are basically Facebook friends and nothing more. Add in the fact that we only have one car and a 45 minute commute every day leaves me basically feeling like a loser hermit.

Speaking of my job, I'm pretty much over it. I have no desire to come in to work every day because I am so unhappy. I have posted for a couple other positions and one I am really interested in. It would be a definite challenge and a pay raise so please keep your fingers crossed for me.

Obviously my funky mood is still determined to linger around, so feel free to send me something to make me laugh. I find such joy and camaraderie with the ladies (and gentlemen) in the blogging world. My day just isn't complete until I've had the chance to read all my favorite blogs.


  1. I couldn't agree more. I have been feeling the same way lately. Why are IRL friends so hard? We need a whole post on that one. I hope your day perks up.

  2. OMG that Spongebob picture is hilarious.

    and we ALL have those days. I had one myself yesterday too. Everything irritated me and all the while I KNEW I was being bitchy and wanted to break out of it and couldn't. Oh well....

    Hope you perk up soon love!

  3. I know what you mean about not having many IRL friends. I have like 2 maybe 3, and they are my sister and her sister-in-law, so I don't even know if that counts.

    Good luck with the job situation. Nothing sucks more than going to a job that you aren't happy with.

  4. Oh, those days suck! I really hope something spectacular happens to put a smile on your face! And I hope you get that job you applied for! Can't go wrong with a change of place!

    Also, I feel like not having a ton of IRL friends might just be part of being a grown-up. Maybe not, but that's what I'm telling myself. Because most of my friends are either in another state or just not...I don't know...on the same wavelength as me. If that makes sense? IDK, just wanted to say you're not alone!

  5. Hope you day is better! Good luck with finding a new job. I go through phases every few months where I hate mine.


    Hey, it made me laugh. ;)
    Hope your day looks up!

  7. I was in a funk for a long time until I got a new job and it really helped a lot! Now I just need to get my husband out of his rut and everything will be right in the world :)
