Don't Be Such A Scrooge

Can you forgive a pig-headed old fool with no eyes to see with and no ears to hear with all these years?

As it's getting closer and closer to christmas I'm noticing I tend to be getting crankier and crankier, I've also noticed this with age but we'll save that for another day.
Yesterday at work I was talking to a co-worker about another co-worker, ok I was complaining about this other co-worker and guess who walked in? I felt awful and I still feel awful. I'm not totally sure if the co-worker heard what I had said about them, and honestly it is something I would say to their face. I'm just not the type of person to start confrontations, stir the pot if you will. I'm also not the type of person to be negative and I find myself being this way a lot lately.
And the other day, I got mad at Darric because I couldn't find Jordan's hat and lately I can't find his mittens and Darric is the one who picks him up from the daycare most days so I was getting snappy at him and then when I got into my car, there was Jordan's hat sitting on the passenger seat. So, I had forgotten it in my car from the day before. D'oh, my bad!
And I've also just gotten reactions from people lately making me realize I've been snippy, sarcastic, & complainy. And for those who know me know that's not me at all. The miss mary sunshine isn't so sunshiny lately, so I just want to appologize if I've snapped, been sarcastic or complained around you lately. Starting now, I'm going to be cheery, positive, and my ol' miss mary sunshiney self.

didn't you just come off vacation? if so, that's always a cause of irritation for me, to know i spend more time being with a random group of people who can act like idiots, than spending time with people of my own kind that i love. it's just a phase. normal for the workplace, i think. you'll get over it. or you'll go insane. i think you'll get over it.

Thanks Leigh-Leigh, I know I'll get over it. I just gotta keep thinking about what the true meaning of Christmas is anyway, I mean Linus said it all....

Charlie Brown: Isn't there anyone who knows what Christmas is all about?
Linus Van Pelt: Sure, Charlie Brown, I can tell you what Christmas is all about.
[moves toward the center of the stage]
Linus Van Pelt: Lights, please.
[a spotlight shines on Linus]
Linus Van Pelt: "And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, 'Fear not: for behold, I bring unto you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the City of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.' And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host, praising God, and saying, 'Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.'"
[Linus picks up his blanket and walks back towards Charlie Brown]
Linus Van Pelt: That's what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown.

Oh Stupid, stupid emotions.
