Serious Case of the Blahs

What's wrong with me lately? I am so grumpy right now, it's ridiculous. I'm not PMSing (only day 19, people) so I can't explain it. Currently I'm pissed because I was all excited yesterday about some art being sold here and even set my cell phone alarm to go off at 6:30 (which is the 7:30 Eastern Time when they release the art each week), ran to my laptop and turned it on at the right time, saw that there were still 13 prints left, clicked on the purchase button, struggled to remember my PayPal password for a minute before I ran and got my credit card to just pay that way, paid and was happy. Until. I got to work this morning and got an email that they refunded my payment because it sold out before they received my payment. GRRRRR. Then they tell me that I can just go to the artist's site and buy it there. I'm like, "duh, but it's $150 there, as opposed to $40 for the miniture ones that I've been trying to get from your site for months, but it's always sold out!" Gah!

I've been coughing for over a week and am sick of it. I've been fighting with Huz on and off for days and now he's leaving tomorrow for a conference in Texas for 4 days. Saturday night we went to a friend's house with another couple for dinner (they were all theology students) and the conversation on theology and philosophy completely excluded me and I left sobbing like a child. I went to career counseling yesterday and got all introspective and cry-ey and was told by the second counselor (since the first one I started with last month has since had a baby and is on maternity leave) that I need psychological counseling because it's more than choosing a career that's ailing me (I interpret this as, "You're PSYCHO, woman!"). I'm bloated. I don't want to be at work. It's cold and rainy outside. I mean, come on. What's NOT wrong? (I got a positive ovulation test on Sunday morning. I guess that's all that's not wrong right now. But, of course, right after I got it I looked on the internet for "what if's" and found that it could easily be a false positive. Way to burst my own bubble.)
