Moody Monday

That title seems very appropriate this morning. It rained all day yesterday and it's supposed to rain for the next few days so the skies are gray and gloomy.

Sort of like my mood. Plus I'm tired.

I blame some of that on that blasted VH1 station, because even though I vowed that I would not watch Daisy of Love I found myself still up at midnight watching those rejects blubber over Daisy.

VH1's power over me is stronger than I thought. I wonder if there is a rehab group for reality tv addiction.

Let's be honest though. My entire Sunday was full of television. When we woke up to rain, S and I planted ourselves on the couch to catch up on DVR. We watched 90210, Life, The Mentalist and The Mentalist again when we both fell asleep during one of the episodes.

I tore myself away from the couch long enough to make dinner and then we resumed our positions in order to watch The Celebrity Apprentice.

BTW, is anyone else watching CA and hating Annie Duke? I used to like her in a way where you're proud of her success because she's a woman. Now that I've seen her in action though, I cannot stand her. She is really obnoxious.

As you can see I'm rooting for Joan.

So far I'm dark, gloomy and lethargic. Add to that a little anxiety and irritation -then it would an accurate description of me at this very moment.

Anxiety because I have a "lady doctor" appointment next week. It doesn't matter how old I get, or how many times I go, I still hate it. While necessary it's still humiliating and uncomfortable.

I hate lying there while the doctor and nurse discuss mundane topics, like what they are taking to a barbecue that weekend. That happened last time and let me just say that you don't want to have people talking about baked beans and potato salad while peering at your who-ha.

It's not a good place to be in.

Topping off my little mood cocktail this Monday is irritation. This morning I woke up after the alarm went off. The FIRST time. That never happens, but it did this morning.

I got up, went downstairs and packed up my laptop for work, then came back upstairs to shower. I was in and out before S's alarm ever went off so I was feeling a bit proud of myself.

That is until S got out of the shower and made a comment about me leaving the bathroom fan on. Say what?

It's true, in between getting up and going downstairs I cut the fan/light on when I set my towels in the bathroom. Apparently you aren't supposed to have the fan on if you're not in the shower. Or something like that.

I don't know, and frankly I didn't care. I was on time for once and I wanted to bask in the glow of that, not be chastised for cutting on the fan.

Let's just say that my morning didn't start off as I had imagined it. Thank goodness Monday is only one day...and Tuesday is right around the corner.

Welcome to Theme Week! Once again I've teamed up with Denise and together we've forced welcomed Brandy from the Buzz to mix. Be sure to check out those ladies to see their take on Moody Monday. It can't be as bad as mine.

The rain is killing me, too. I'm so over it.

We live in Forks.

But without the Cullens. So not cool.

I think tomorrow is going to be great. Because I'm going to win your giveaway. Ahem. (Ha-ha!)

The Royal Family said...

can't be as bad as yours... I did NOT sleep well and I had to wake up a few times with Hubs alarm because he slept through it and then he left the room for it to go off AGAIN... and I didn't even HAVE ROOM to post about that! Moody monday sure works easily!

:) Hope your day is better I get to go to that lady doctor TODAY, and every month for a few months until it's biweekly then weekly... so don't complain!

Denise said...

wish I could sit on the couch and watch TV all day on Sunday.. but apparently my 5 year old bought over all those rights!

Thanks for coming by to my blog!

Too Many Hats said...

Can you have a three martini lunch? That may help your outlook ;)

Mariah said...

Seriously, what's up with the dr's talking about beans while peering between your thighs. That's not cool!

Christina said...

YOu would think S would know by now to shut up in the morning. Save the back talk for a later time... or better yet.. a later date.

Nancy said...

So glad to hear you hate Annie Duke. I feel like you. At first, I liked her. Now I hate her. I do like Joan but she has really been acting a little crazy, too. Melissa put on some show last week.

Jen said...

You know what, I got sucked into that Daisy show too. Darn VH1....

Veggie Mom said...

Moody Mondays are the worst, aren't they? And the constant rain doesn't help things here, either. Tomorrow's Tuesday, though, and things will be looking better, I promise!

Carey-Life in the Carpool Lane said...

I'm a bit moody myself and it's almost Tuesday. Then what?

Here's hoping a better Tuesday for you!

DysFUNctional Mom said...

This looks like a fun place! I'll be back again to check it out some more.

Kristin said...

I'm still moody and it's Wednesday. Must get out of this funk! Hi from SITS and great blog!

Your monday sounds like my tuesday. I like Annie, I've done her hair and makeup a number of times. She's a tough cookie. It comes from being strong in a man's world. Another client of mine is on CA, Brande, she was hounding me the other night for not watching. "I'm sorry dont watch TV" dont get me wrong, I love TV, thats the problem. Is Natalie still on?
