I have been so grumpy lately and unfortunately I tend to to take it out on the people I love the most.
Last night Nick and I started bowling on a league together and I cannot count the number of times I snapped at him. First, I was annoyed because the league started so late (9:45 pm) then I was annoyed because he didn't remind me to get cash to pay for it, then I was irritated because he kept saying in my ear, "don't be grumpy, smile."
Between some issues I have had going on at work and lots of preparing for two weeks with back to back tests and presentations I have just been sleep deprived and irritable!
I don't know what to do... but I know I need to do something to snap myself out of this funk. I was thinking of trying to get myself on a more structured schedule where I try to go to bed at the same time and wake up at the same time everyday with the goal being walking or running in the morning. I know the natural endorphins from working out will boost my mood, but I am so horrible at getting up in the mornings I just don't think it will happen. I know I should at least try though! Working out in the evenings is really not an option for me... it just won't happen.
I need some sort of incentive program to get myself up! Maybe everytime I wake up and work out I put a $1 or two in a jar and buy myself something that I really want. Maybe the sticker program would work well for me... I know it did for Lesli (at least I think she did something like earning stickers...). Ahh, who knows. Maybe I just need a good vacation.
Have you ever been in a funk like this and how did you snap yourself out of it?
