Help me stay calm. TW: Inane bitchfest.

I am in a mood. A big ol FOUL ASS MOOD, y'all. My past couple of weeks have just been a nasty ass shit sundae, with a bunch of work bullshit, a bunch of weekends away with other people with constant social interaction and no down time, no time for cleaning or cooking or grocery shopping, house guests, a terrible fight… » 9/02/14 10:55am Today 10:55am

I have been out of town for two weekends and hosted my parents until this morning, so I am napping and eating pasta and watching Penny Dreadful. I should be doing laundry and cleaning, too, but I am so tired. I need a week in PJs without having to talk to anyone, but my inconsiderate husband booked two house guests… » 9/01/14 1:36pm Yesterday 1:36pm

I started with sparkling rose, moved to a light cab, and ended with Pinot Grigio. » 8/31/14 12:36am Sunday 12:36am

I watched a Facebook status thread about marriage equality turn into some of the ugliest comments I have ever seen, including a man who made a biblical argument that slavery should exist today in 2014. I was astonished that the man who said it would do so openly. » 8/29/14 4:36pm Friday 4:36pm

I do much better if I enforce a schedule that incorporates relaxation and/or exercise when I am stressed. Mine is centered mostly around food and sleep. I go grocery shopping on the weekend and cook enough stuff that I can eat healthy during the week. I also take a bath and am done before 10 so I can get to sleep at a… » 8/28/14 11:59pm Thursday 11:59pm
