A family's story

Crabby Patty

Today I feel like a Crabby Patty…a Grumble Gus….a “Moner” Lisa. (Like that one?? My mom coined that one years ago…)

It is well known in our family that when I don’t feel well, I become a total Grumpus. When I get a virus, it’s like the damn thing invades not only my bloodstream and causes headaches, runny nose, sore throat, sinus pressure, and a chest pressure…but it invades my brain-space, too. I am miserable through and through….I want to complain and groan and lie around in a pool of my misery. I’m short with my family and quick-tempered. I just want to be left alone to wallow in my crabbiness.

I hope this virus leaves me soon, because right now I don’t feel like doing much of anything other than be crabby…and that’s not good for anyone. I get the “poor-me’s” too, which can be a slippery slope. I hope to feel better soon….but wanted explain my absence here…I just don’t have anything nice to say…so I’m following the Disney quote and “won’t say anything at all”.

  1. I do like the Moner-Lisa name. 🙂 Feel better friend.

  2. It doesn’t seem right to “Like” this post. I hope you feel better soon. I feel like I’ve had a cold forever and I just want it to go away. Shoo, virus!

  3. Sending virtual chicken soup… feel better soon!
