Grumpy Bear

I didn't sleep much or well at all last night, despite prescription medications that are supposed to help me with this problem. I also woke up with aches in pretty much every joint in my body, a headache, and feeling exhausted. I'm not sure if there's anything more frustrating in the world then waking up already exhausted. 

I felt so gross and grumpy this morning that I was surly at APL and then cried about it before even getting out of bed. I did manage to force myself out of bed to school, but only made it through one class before realizing that I hadn't even had energy for that. So APL picked me up and drove me home on his way to an appointment. After he left I laid on the floor and cried for 20 minutes.

Awesome start to this day/week.

At least APL understands that it's not him I'm actually upset with. And River was there to lick the tears of my face. 

And at least law school will be over soon...if you can call two weeks of classes, one presentation, one 20 page paper, and 3 three-hour exams upon which my whole grade depends "soon." Grrrr.....

So sorry to hear you had a crap day – hope tonight you sleep well and tomorrow is better.

P.S. Having River around to lick your face sounds awesome!

Do not be sad, little bear!

Wish I was there to give you a big hug and bundle you up, mainly to get you off the floor. Crying on the floor is in many ways worse than crying on say, a sofa or in a hammock. Why, you ask? Well, because you're crying (obviously) and on the floor (ditto) and then you REALIZE you're crying on the floor and that's deeply upsetting in its own right. I think it has to do with Freudian regression, but maybe that's just me.

Perhaps more pertinently, if your floors are anything like mine, you end up a huddled mass of drying tears and dust.


Feel better, little bear!

Oh, I'm sorry - what an awful day. I'm glad APL and River were there for you.

I hope you're feeling a little better soon, or at least that you're able to get some rest.
