Anger Sharks

My anger sharks are swimming inside me this morning. For starters, I am having so much trouble with my writing project this semester. I have to keep revising a 60 page paper and with so much revision, I don't know where to start. Usually I just sit here and stare at my monitor. Then, Corey is totally sick and has to get up every hour to hack up phlegm. So I can't sleep at night and lie there thinking of my paper instead of getting refreshing sleep. Also, the kitchen is full to the brim of dirty, disgusting dishes. I can't bring myself to wash them and now there are sooooo many I wouldn't even know where to put dirty ones while I make others clean. Plus, even though Corey is sick, it is not my TURN to do these dishes. And I just can't make myself help him out when I do so much else domestically around here that I feel like I should get a uniform and ask for a Christmas bonus. Even those dishes in the dish drainer are dirty. We just put them there because there was nowhere else to put them. I can't even cook dinner tonight because all the pots and pans are dirty. And look at the disgusting crap in the drain!






Is it wrong that I get sick satisfaction from watching my neighbors clean their cars in the freezing cold? It's like when I watched Destiny move in the day after Corey and me. I just sat in my pajamas and watched her haul furniture in the stinking heat. This morning, I enjoyed watching Freya dig out her car wearing dress-up clothes. This is just wrong!

Your mother sounds like a very common sensical person to me--I think you should follow her advice. I think you need a vacation.Think good thoughts about Tuscany, vineyards, pasta in the summer...

Are you trying to not-so-subtly guilt trip Corey into doing dishes by posting pictures of them? BWAH-HA-HA-HA-HA!!! Good luck with that... he is immune to such tactics (thankfully).
