Photos speak louder than words

These are two panels from the infamous Mrs. Mustard's BabyFaces.  One side showcases about six really pissed-off babies, the other side shows them happy as clams.  We used to show this book to Max when he was a baby because babies love looking at themselves (it's true!) I've kept it because I love it, too, and today, I admit, I could be the babe on the right.

Why am I in a bad mood?
1. I haven't had time to do my own writing which makes me crazy and cranky.
2. I've been sick which makes me nervous and cranky.
3. It's getting colder! (OK, I admit, I like the cold...)
4. Did I mention I was still sick?

You need some time off, girl! I bet if you could sleep as late as you want, then work on your own writing - just for one day - you'd be better in no time. Could you swing that?

Feel better, Caroline! I have had the same sort of day (and that kid on the right is upstairs right now, whining at her father.)

Must be a common theme -- I, too, feel exactly like those pissed off babies right now! (Not because I'm sick, though. In my case, it's because I just sat through the first movie in the history of my life that made me so bored, I wanted to go steal a car and/or slit my wrists in order to get away from it, and now I hate the world for making such a film possible and for taking $10 and 2.5 hours of my life away from me in the process. But I digress.)

Anyway, thanks for the well-timed visual of so many of our moods! Hope you FEEL BETTER and get some much-needed time for your own writing! :)
