Grumpy Gus

Yesterday was rough. It was one of those days where you’re just in a shit ass mood and nothing is really going to change that.

It didn’t help that we had to start the day with a work meeting to discuss our issues with the new kid at work. In reality, we should not have kept him past his 90 days but our boss likes to give people approximately one million chances. I can’t stand people who cannot take constructive criticism as the new person, twist incidents to make themselves look better and straight up deny the shit that they do. I’m positive that he’s sexist as well so you know just how high he ranks in my books. So of course, I had to shut that shit down and I left the kid dumbfounded.Β That felt good.Β But, it was first thing in the morning and I don’t like arguing as soon as I get up.

This coffee mug accurately represents me first thing in the morning:


The rest of the day was boring as fuck. We were dead at work and the new kid made it awkward all day. Boss sent me home early which should have lightened my mood but it didn’t. The rest of the day I was stressed about financial things and couldn’t let it go. My sister-in-law told me to go take a bubble bath, light some candles and read a book. I should have listened to her but books near water make me antsy and I couldn’t find my bubble bath. *Cue extra cranky*

Alas! Today is a new day and I will grump no more! Lots of cleaning to do as we’ll have the sister, brother-in-law and nephew over tomorrow. (Cleaning is not fun of course but needs to be done) There is baking in my future and that always pleases me now. It pleases me even more when people are excited to eat the things I bake. I told my sister-in-law that I would make her any bread she wanted (lemon blueberry) and I am excited to try a new recipe.

Today I will be as the praying mantis that was waiting for me on the hood of the vehicle the other day; patient and wise. Should that fail, the mantra will change to ‘fuck it and eat it.’ Look out husband.

  1. I really dig that praying mantis mantra. πŸ˜› Grumpy days are the worst, so I’m glad today is looking less grumpified for ya. Also, on an unrelated note I may or may not have been getting Christmas shopping ideas for you today. Just sayin’. πŸ˜‰ I have one thing in mind that just screams your name.

  2. Embrace the grumpiness mwahaha. Oh you thought I was a good influence? NEVER! In all honesty ugh, I hope you’re at least off on the weekends so you can recoup from that shitty Friday. Make something yummy. You’re making me again want to scour my Pinterest dessert boards and whip up something sweet and bad for me. Maybe fudge…I’ve got a ton of recipes for those.

    1. I do get the weekends off. I only have to work one Saturday a month, so there’s that. Plus, I wanted to switch shifts this week with my coworker to go see Black Sabbath and my boss told me just to go ahead and use a vacation day short notice. So next week I’ll work 2 days, have 2 days off, work 2 days and have 2 days off thanks to the holiday weekend lol. I made baked goodies yesterday and I’m making some more today. My pinterest account gets hit hard these days. πŸ˜›

      1. I forewent any dessert making to make my husband pick up pre-made cinnamon rolls from the store. They’re pretty epic hehe. I’ve actually been neglecting Pinterest lately, but I need to work on organizing my pins. I can’t find anything D:

      2. I’ve done it before and they’re annoying. You have to roll out all the dough and layer on melted butter and cinnamon and sugar mixture. They never turn out quite as moist as the store bought either.
