Why am I in such a rotton mood today?
Is it because it's grey and wet?
Is it because my children seem to have stopped listening to me?
Is it because as much as I love my family of three men, sometimes being the only female can give one a sense of otherness?
Is it because one of my children feels that solving our argument consists of explaining my character flaws to me?
Is it because the other two in the family 'didn't want to get involved' which didn't feel like uh....loving support?
Is it because it's January?
Is it because I should have taken a shower when I got up and I didn't?
Is it because I have to work a little late today?
Is it because I don't have a house concert scheduled until March?
Is it because I'm just a whiny creature?
Is it because I feel busy and frazzled and blue?
Is it because it's a Tuesday in January and it's going to be in the 60's today?
Is it because I didn't accomplish what I wanted to last weekend?
Is it because I have to work some on Saturday and some on Sunday this weekend?
Is it because I closed my sister's estate account finally last Friday?
Is it because I watched Downton Abbey this Sunday and when two sisters stood there watching the third sister die I sobbed?
Is it because I haven't heard any live music in a while?
Is it because my attempt at pan fried whole trout seemed so promising and didn't turn out well?
Is it because I have friends that are ill and other friends that have just lost someone dear to them?
Is it....well, I don't know why it is....but it is.
I'll give you this though....two cheerful items of note.
It's all I've got but it's a start.
1. the new sign up link at the top right for house concert info.
2. this brilliant video in which reportedly you can hear my beloved Sue Davis yell at the very beginning.
