Most of the time when someone you meet at a store or in passing asks how you are you probably say "fine" or "good" or "okay" but do you ever want to just let it all out? Tell some stranger than you feel like crap because you are down and a little out? Pour your soul to some stranger who you will likely never see again? Or is that just me?
Life has been tough lately. Frankly I am sick to death of hearing myself whine about it. This blog is my vent space so you all are burdened with all the whining I can possibly dish out. (So sorry for that!) I am trying to pull myself up out of it. It just feels like every time I get my head above water someone finds a way to push me under. My brother who is making me the villain of his story for this week. My sister who apparently has had unspoken resentment towards me for the past year but smiled to my face the whole time. My boss who cancels my class and robs me of 15 hours and almost $2,000 because of "low enrollment". My kids who are doing their best to drive me to the brink of insanity and give me the nice push I will need to get there.
It's exhausting. Usually writing it down (here) gives me the catharsis I need. Right now it's just not enough.
I just hope that as the new season approaches it ushers in a renewal for all of us. We're tired. We're stressed. We're housebound. We seriously need Spring.
