Hurricane Humberto hit Texas this morning, according to this story by the Houston Chronicle. Up here we did not even get a drop of rain. The sky is gray this morning, though, so maybe it's in store for us later.

I am in a crappy mood this morning. My moods are starting to get all weird again. Last night, a small misunderstanding with Gabe caused me to freak out and start a sobfest. At night I had restless sleep and woke up a few times. My asthma flared up and I had to do a breathing treatment at 4:30 AM.

I woke up this morning with a feeling of dread, the all familiar stir at the pit of my stomach. I am going back to work after taking the day off yesterday to care for Isabel and I wonder what is in store for me, what messes do I have to clean up. I feel like a condemned prisoner walking towards the firing squad. I wish I could stay here and not have to go out at all.

When I started this blog one of my motivators was to chart my moods, in the hopes of seeing a trend in black and white, something that will help me understand better what is going on, beyond the "hormonal" label. If you look at the themes of my posts, you'll see that "Mood" has the most posts associated with it. I have been too lazy and have not done any kind of analysis of my mood trends, but perhaps it is time I do that.


  1. Ugh yes, going back to work after a day off is miserable, if only we could earn a living blogging! :-)

    I hear ya on the moods, maybe it's the change of weather, I've been a bit droopy this week too. Just when I think I've got it pretty well pulled together I hit another wave of deep water, but somehow I know that I always will come thru it again... so will you!

    Glad the hurricaine didn't reach you, I was thinking of you when I saw it in the news!

  2. I'm sorry you're not feeling great. Hope you feel better soon.

  3. Ah yes, back to work blues, are all too familiar. I think its a good idea to keep track of your moods. maybe keep track of what you ate, or how much sleep you had that day too, just to see if there is any connection?

    Hope you feel better soon.
