My Time To Whine

The past couple of days, I have been feeling irritable and a little off kilter.  I imagine I am feeling kind of like my cat did when he had fleas.  Let me explain…

Fleas have to be one of the biggest irritants to any living creature.  This is what I imagine a flea would do to anyone…they cause itching that can’t be eased.  They get into places that can’t be reached.  And they come and go ~ one minute you’re feeling fine, the next minute you’re overcome with an itching so intense it could drive you to madness.

And NO, I don’t have fleas…

It’s my braces.  I am so over them.  I usually don’t wish time away but I can’t wait until August gets here.  My mouth is on fire!  The headaches caused by my misaligned jaw are long gone but the pain from the near constant movement of my teeth is driving me mad.  Couple that with poke-y wires, cheeks that feel like a cheese grater rolled over them and a lack of the desire to eat because it’s such a pain in the rear ~ I gave myself a recipe for a little time to whine.

But whining doesn’t do any good.  It just makes me want to whine more and I have too much to do, too much to be thankful for to sit here and whine. 

Whine time is over!

It’s time to move on and get back to normal. So, I’ll do what any normal person does to lift their spirits…I’m gonna put my iPod on the docking station, pull up my “fun song” play list and get moving.

These songs always make me smile, so to help brighten your day, I thought I’d share them with you.

First, up?  “Jenny, Jenny” (gonna get it stuck in your head so you’ll think of me all day ~ and smile!).  It always makes me giggle, just a little.

How ’bout a little Black Eyed Peas and some “Boom Boom Pow”?  Can you say “girls’ weekend?”

Or maybe some “Toes” by the Zac Brown band.  Ah, that’s good…not a worry in the world…

How ’bout a little Billy Joel and a little “Only the Good Die Young”?  A tribute to my Catholic-ness

My last one….Def Leppard!  “Pour Some Sugar on Me”!  This one brings me back to a GRAND concert where we competed to see who could lose their voices first…

Ah, there!  I feel better already!!  PHEW!  I don’t wanna to whine and be irritable.  I’ve got things to do, places to go and people to see.  No one wants to be around a whiner ~ except other whiners and that’s not a place I wanna be or can afford to be…for the love of my children!
