Easily Offended

I think I am too easily offended.  I read something tonight that shouldn't have offended me, but it did.  Maybe it's my current state of mind - my life is full of drama right now, and it's filling every part of my life.  So excuse me if I'm crabby, excuse me if I'm offended, excuse me for whatever.

Just know that the guy who cut you off this morning on your way to work?  Maybe he's not really a jerk.  Maybe he's rushing to the hospital to be with someone he loves.  The woman who cuts in front of you in line?  Maybe she's late for work and really just needs to buy those bananas and get out of the store.  The person who writes something that you don't like?  Maybe they're going through stuff that you wouldn't have a clue a little compassionate, people.

Oops Take 2

I just realized that I wrote my original "Oops" post almost a full month ago.  Oops.  Gosh, I just haven't been good at writing lately.  I haven't been good at much of anything lately, really.  I don't say this to get a bunch of comments telling me "yes you have!"  No people, really, I haven't.  Everything seems to be getting a little overwhelming lately, so when I think of writing I tend to not do it because either (A) I don't have anything useful to say or (B) I don't feel like I have the time or energy even though it would only take a few minutes.

But here I am...finally writing.  I will try to get a few catch-up posts done tonight or tomorrow.  Not that I have a ton to catch anyone up on, but I'm sure I'll come up with something!

Okay, so I just realized it's been 6 weeks since I last posted anything.  I completely skipped over the month of February.  Oops.  I completely blame it on school, work, internship, LIFE.  

The past several weeks have been a little crazy for me.  I feel like I can't get caught up on anything.  As soon as I get caught up in one area I feel like five other areas have fallen apart.

School has been rough this semester.  There is just so much to do at times I don't know where to start, and the classes seem crazy this time 'round.  I feel like two of the classes are just rushed and that I never quite know what's going on.  The good news is that I only have 2 class sessions left - in 3 weeks I will be done.  Granted I start my new classes 2 weeks after that, but just to be done with these classes will be a relief.

I am still doing my internship and will be for at least a couple more months.  I love being at CPA and working with the kids and other staff, but I would be lying if I said I wasn't looking forward to being done.  Unfortunately, it's become just another thing to worry about.

Our house is a mess.  Honestly.  It's not Kristin's fault or my fault.  In fact, I blame it on our cats.  After all, they're the ones home all day, right?  Just kidding.  But really, we've both been so busy it's been hard to keep up with everything here on the home front.  Kudos to Kristin for doing the laundry this weekend and keeping us fed with yummy dinners, though!

Another note on the home front - my nativities from Christmas are STILL up.  Kristin gently reminded me of this last night (look kitties, mommy's nativities are STILL up and it's almost MARCH!) to which I answered "I'll put them away tomorrow, promise."  It's now 11:20 p.m. and they still aren't put away.  I guess that will have to wait for another weekend... :(

I've thought about taking a day off work to just stay home and clean but figure the cleaning wouldn't actually get done, and I'd spend the day sleeping or doing homework.  Maybe it's time to hire someone...?

There is other stuff going on, but I won't get into it now.  I think I've complained enough for one night.  I guess I'm just feeling like so many aspects of my life are swirling out of control right now which makes it difficult to get anything done.

Bottom Line:  I'll try to get better at writing.
