Wallow, wallow

I have this tendency to be depressing. I've been trying, as of late, to be more positive and not allow the "wallowing in misery." When the wallowing occurs, nobody wants to be around me. I don't blame them! I don't want to be around me either. The wallowing can suck the happiness out of everything. I don't like it. Don't get me wrong --a healthy dose of reality and pity is likely to help me work through issues. The operative word, however, is "through". Wallowing isn't working through it. Wallowing is bathing in it. Hoo-wee! That makes almost too much sense. [Has anyone seen my Thesaurus?]

However, dear Reader, my brain is mushy today, and I only have my feelings. So forgive the lack of positivism, which, strangely enough, was bright and vibrant only last night. But I woke up this morning, muscles aching, head pounding, lungs hurting, and nose running. In a nutshell? I'm sick. I'm tired. Not necessarily "Sick and Tired", though. I have 2 drop-offs, and 2 pick-ups for school today. #1 also has gymnastics, which, including driving time, translates into two hours with the kiddies in a small closed-in places. Then there's dinner. I probably should pick up the markers and crayons before #4 eats more. Oh, yeah --and that piano recital tomorrow I need to get ready for. Yes, and it's still raining outside. I don't mind too much, since it gives me a nice excuse to stay in. I think #4 is teething. #1 and #2 were sick earlier this week (thanks, girls!), but it hasn't struck the boys, yet. Maybe this is a girl-only virus? And how come Brandon never gets sick, but when he does he never complains about it? The house was clean yesterday. How does it get so messy so quickly? I have to reschedule Book Club --how come the Stake plans things on nights that are inconvenient for me?

I think I need a towel. This wallowing is going to take a while...

P.S. For those of you who might have noticed, I've been trying to use expandable post summaries. However, since switching my Template to a Layout one, I've been unable to find the place to add the "Read More" tab. Therefore, you must click on the title of the post to read the entire entry. I'm still working on it. Obviously, I was too lazy to do it on this post. But for future reference, if the post seems unfinished? Yeah, there's more. Just click on the title. Thanks! Wow, that was all technical. Maybe my brain's not as mushy as I thought?
