I’ve wondered about my mood and productivity lately, and why it’s off-kilter. This is one of the busier times of the year at work, and it really sucks that I’m off my game right now. I’ve taken a little inventory today of when I’ve noticed that I haven’t been giving work my total attention, and have found that there are a million things in the world distracting me, namely:
Jess’s unemployment and if she’ll get a job soon.
My own struggle to be and stay sober. I know, I know.
Jess’s mother living with us.
My pills making me feel awful today.
The cat that we had to put down this weekend. I think he was poisoned or something like that. I wasn’t very close with this particular cat, but burying and say goodbye still sucks.
My mother in the hospital, and the fact that I’m not speaking to her again.
The 1,000,000 things that I have to do around the house and hard.
That cute puppy who is a total pain in the ass.
I miss my girls.
I’m not trying to have any kind of pity party, but if I’m an asshole and unresponsive via another medium, that’s why. I have a lot and I’m grateful, but it would sure be nice if something got easier soon.
Steve makes me laugh every time I talk to him.

If only Obama had listened to Paul Wolfowitz, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld in 2003 when he invaded, Iraq wouldn’t be in this mess now.
