Crazy Town

This is the story of my visit to Crazy Town.

If you read my previous post, then you know I stayed home from work with my sick baby on Wednesday.  I know all the teachers out there reading this will agree that it is a pain in the behind to miss school.  

Every time I am out for the day, I come back to a room that is a mess, a list of names of kids who acted a fool, and something is not working.

So I shouldn't have been surprised when I got to work Thursday morning, already agitated by MY fighting children, and my desktop computer would not come on.

I did everything I could think of and nothing worked.  

At this point I can feel my face turning red and my heart beating fast and I am just getting angrier by the second.  

I rush to my coworkers room and ask her what she thinks it could be and she proceeds to tell me that the lights went out yesterday during school.  

So then I get even more mad thinking about the hundreds of student computers in the school and my desktop is the only one that ends up fried.  

I text Brent and use a few choice words.  I'm ranting and raving to my coworkers who were probably thinking I had just bought my one way ticket on the crazy train.  

I mean really, who gets this upset over a computer that wont work.  

I know it's stupid.

I get mad about the dumbest things. 

We could get in a car wreck, or have to pay some huge unexpected bill that we can't afford and I'll be cool as  cucumber.  

Then I'll lose my keys, can't find my phone, or something won't work and you would think the world was coming to an end. 

I can't explain it, but I am very thankful for the people who put up with it.

This is something I really need to work on and I think I'm getting slightly better.  This type of thing used to happen very often with me and now it's probably once every couple of months.  

Well now y'all know I'm kookoo!!

Update:  I typed this post up last Friday and then Sunday morning I had another crazy town trip when my 16 month old woke up at 4 in the morning and was crying non stop for seemingly no reason.  

So much for once every couple of months.
