One of those days...

Today was one of them. One of those days that things just don't work out right and you end up getting super irritated and angry over something small and insignificant. What set me off today was my phone. For whatever reason, my phone decided to stop working for me this morning. It would make a phone call, but then the person on the other side couldn't hear me and after a couple of seconds being connected, it would drop my call. Me or the person I was attempting to call would try to call back and the same thing would happen over and over again. It was really starting to get on my nerves. I had all my little bars showing so the signal shouldn't have been the issue. To put me on the end of my nerves even more, this week is the 6th week of the first 6 weeks of the 2nd semester. Which means grades are due. I'm way behind on grades. I also discovered that I had a whole assignment missing for one class period and that assignment counted for 2 grades. That irritated me further. All day I was trying to grade in between checking student's work and teach and lead the activity for the day. It was really frustrating and stressfull. I decided that I would stay late after school and get more grading done. I settled in at my desk after the last of my students left for the day. My phone rang. It was Waylon. I tried to answer it. He, of course, couldn't hear me but I could hear him and after a couple of hello's, it dropped the call. He tried calling me right back which I knew wasn't going to work so I got up and went across the room to where my classroom phone is (it's inconveniently placed across the room from where all the plugs for computers are so my desk has to be on the opposite side of the room from my phone - which sucks.) and call him back. It went to his voicemail because he was trying to call my cell for the third time by now. I was really starting to get irritated because I could see this going on for several more times. I finally got through to his phone and was already frustrated when he answered so I snapped at him when it wasn't his fault my phone wasn't working but the situation was frustrating none the less. I quickly explained my phone issues and that I was just trying to get some grading done as quick as possible and then got off the phone with him. Five minutes later, after settling into my desk again and getting back into the groove of grading, my phone rang again. This time it was my sister calling from my mom's phone. I didn't even bother trying to answer or to call my mom's cell because she was calling me a second time and my call would just go straight to her voicemail. I called their house line instead which got me straight through. We spoke for a couple minutes then I got off the phone to get back to grading again. I was soooooooooooooooooo extremely frustrated and angry at the phone issue and how it had caused me to have to stop working to get up and go across the room. My plan was to go to the phone store and get a new phone tonight. When I was on my way home, I turned it off and then back on and it worked just fine...go figure. I should have done that sooner. By that time I was starving which is a condition that will put me in a bad mood fast even when I'm not pregnant but has an even stronger effect on me now that I'm "with child". My mood was quickly deteriorating and I called Waylon and told him we needed to meet for dinner ASAP or I was bound to destroy something or be completely, unneccesarily rude to someone. By the time I was done with dinner, I was feeling much better, but then again, Chipotle's always makes me feel better. sigh...

Now I'm about to leave to go to church. I'm feeling much better today than yesterday although still not completely well. I had a migraine that kept me up till 4 am Monday night, a cold that prevented me from breathing and my eyes hurt like crazy. I ended up leaving work after lunch and coming home to get some rest before the playoff game I had to go with the cheerleaders to last night in Decatur. It felt like the day that would never end. Now today feels that way...

One last thing. I got the test results in from the downs syndrome test my doctor did the last time I was in. Everything looked normal. I was relieved.

My next appointment is Tuesday. Hopefully I'll be able to post a confirmation that I am indeed still having a girl!

Glad that your phone is back to working again. Ahem. I noticed you didn't mention anything about snapping at me on the phone or anything. That's ok..I forgive you.lol. I hope these feeling bad episodes pass and you can start feeling better. It really sucks when you can't do anything about it. But, I promise, the end result is soooo worth it. It will be one of the greates exepriences of your life.
