I barely slept last night and it made me into such a cranky grumpasaurus all day. I was really disappointed in all the negative energy I put out in the world as I griped about the weather and our alarm going off early. I snapped at Chris and got irrationally angry at my cat.
I was mad because I was feeling proud of myself for navigating the holidays and traveling and a busy few weeks at work and not really feeling stressed. Even a few days on the road (we road tripped home for Christmas…almost forty hours in the car round trip) just reminded me that it’s silly to get mad at tailgaters or other rude drivers. Driving is basically an exercise in constant forgiveness.
But last night we were in a hotel on the road. Our neighbors were loud, the wind was blowing so hard it kept whistling. We had to get up early to get home on time to drop off the rental car and worst of all, Harper gave us a scare in the middle of the night. He got really agitated around 1 am and his stomach was making crazy noises. We let him out, did some googling, and eventually we all calmed down and went back to sleep.
Hoping a good night’s sleep after this bath and an episode of Nashville will take me back to normal tomorrow. Exhale.
