Very, very cranky.
I have found that I have very little patience lately. I don't know if its the pregnancy or what, but I become irritated and impatient very quickly.
At my nephew's birthday party last weekend, I found myself wanting to smack my mother-in-law's hand away when she kept rubbing my (almost non-existent) tummy bump. I don't know how I will keep my cool as I get bigger and all and sundry feel the need to give me a pat. I never thought that this would bother me...well, it does.
Also, at work yesterday, I was just about to explode because I am SO SICK AND TIRED of my coworkers taking forever to get things done. I mean, when one of them asks me to do something for them, I do it right away. Somehow, my requests to them seem to get last priority. Why, for example, does it take someone a month to edit a manual? WHY? WHY?!!! And why is it okay with my boss that it takes them so long?
I have gotten into the habit, when I send someone at work an email with a question and get no response, of sending them a second, slightly snippy email asking them to please get back to me. It usually works, and sometimes actually brings them to my cube in person. Does the end justify the means in this case, or am I making a nusiance of myself and being a bitch? You know, it's funny, but I really don't care. Maybe that answers my last question. Hmmm.
One of my side jobs is cutting hair, and as I walked into one of my client's houses yesterday I was hit with very loud, very cheesy reggae music playing on one of the cable music channels. I was considering whether or not it would be rude to ask them to please.turn.it.off. I didn't, figuring it's their house after all, and then, they turned it UP. Gaaah.
So all of this combines to make me very tired of people in general and makes me want to hibernate at home. I know that's not good. I think part of it is that I've been really tired and feeling overwhelmed. God give me patience, cause I need it. NOW.
