Anger isn't something I like to feel.
Yesterday I was angry about a lot of different things.
It was insinuated on a blog that I don't care enough about my stepdaughter to send her in new clothes to school, which is false in its own right, but none the less, the insinuation was there. That I'm somehow less of a parent because I don't believe school is a fashion show in elementary school.
How many times did I have kids in my own classroom who cried because their moms would "get mad" if they got dirty? It is about your child's perception whether you meant it that way or not.
So, I send my son and my stepdaughter to school in comfortable and appropriate clothing for learning and playing on the playground and in P.E. They don't wear flip flops or open toed shoes to school. Their playgrounds have mulch as the base and let's face it, mulch under and between your toes is gross, in addition to the potential injury factor.
That's my choice and decision as a parent.
I don't criticize the fashion show parents either.
I guess it just set me off. Sometimes that happens and fortunately, it's not all the time.
You know those moments, when one thing pisses you off and everything else in your day simply follows suit.
My husband doesn't do sick well. Crankypants.
And he's been suffering from a cold for nearly two weeks now.
We got into an argument which contributed to my anger.
In our relationship, arguing isn't destructive...there's no name calling or degrading. Just disagreement when it happens.
But, the emotion is still there.
The Anger List also included: feelings about past allegations and accusations, my ex husband's planning skills, a family member's behavior, the dvr being set to record two programs, so I couldn't watch the 3rd I wanted to watch while it was on, Amber on Teen Mom...
You know when the day begins that way, all the little things get magnified.
I don't do angry well.
I hoping today will feel better.
Oh yeah! I went to the dentist too and as I drove up, Eminem was on the radio.
