I am a little on the cranky side. I have been all day. There was a time when I loved sleeping on the hard floor . . crazy, huh? Well those days are behind me now. Sleeping on my office floor was horrible last night. I tossed and turned. At least I did not wake up with the germs floating around my house, so I guess it was worth it.
The lack of sleep did not coincide with today being a catch-up day. With all the snow the last few days, I pushed a bunch of appointments to today. So I was out for 11 hours. Eleven whole hours, just knowing that when I got home to my house of sickies . . that I wouldn't be done working. I was correct. I got home and the house is a disaster area. I am putting on blinders and will not clean a thing tonight. Well, maybe a few things. And they wanted some homemade chicken and dumplings. If it helps, I am ok making it. Although I'd really rather just go to sleep.
While I was driving around, anticipating coming home to a mess, I just couldn't get myself too positive. Just one of those funk moods, ya know. I wasn't happy. I didn't care to be happy. I was just fine being cranky. At one point, a business service that I pay for made me mad. And it was actually a little therapeutic to call up and be less than polite.
When in one of these moods, it is hard to think about what to write in a thankful blog. Fortunately, there was a commercial on the radio that inspired me. So for your entertainment tonight, here are Jessie's Awards for the day!
Best Radio Commercial - goes to the Budweiser commercial about fracking. I never thought that a beer commercial would read my mind so well. But from the first time I heard about fracking, and how serious it is, I've wondered why someone would name it fracking! It sounds like a word that an elementary student made up to say instead of a swear word.
Worst Plowed Roads - Cohoctah Township. No other words necessary here . . . grrrr
Worst Driver - Semi driver passing in a no passing zone, going up a hill. I came over the hill the other way and was almost squished. P.S. Yes I swerved at you on purpose . . . idiot. I wish my horn sounded ruder sometimes.
Best Two Wheel Drive pretending to be a Four Wheel Drive - my minivan. Hooray for the baby blue beauty!
Longest Time Waiting Between Public Restrooms - Me. I get an award because Gosh darn it, I deserve one sometimes!
Biggest Snowman Family - This would be the house I saw that had six, yes SIX full sized snowmen waving to the road.
Most Unique Snowman - This would be to the people that built their snowman around their mailbox and had the mailbox door be the snowman's mouth . . . pretty darn clever!
Silliest Girls - This would be my two girls who are in here now being fever free and cabin fever-ish from being locked up, resting for days. They are a riot . . . :)
Best Audience - That's You! :)
Tonight I am thankful for some humor to brighten my day because that seems to be just what I needed.
