Spring has sprung [ April 22, 2004, 2:50 p.m. ]

Today is one of those days where everything pisses me off. I guess I got up on the wrong side of bed or something. The whole way to work I rehearsed telling everyone off that needed telling off. Ive been hiding out in my office today as not to subject my coworkers to my foul mood. I decided the only way to recover is to take tomorrow off.

Hopefully it will be warm enough to do a little yard work. Last weekend, R and I spent a great deal of time doing outdoor projects. I cleaned the yard and windows, R installed a screen door so the cats could gawk outside without running away. It was unseasonably warm (86) and the house was HOT inside. Ugh..I have a feeling Im going to be sweaty a lot this summer.

The screen door was quite an ordeal. First there was no hardware in the box that said HARDWARE INCLUDED! Back to Lowes for hardware. Then no instructions. Back to Lowes for instructions. Then the hardware they gave us did not fit the door we bought. Back to Lowes for new hardware. I hope those ungrateful cats appreciate it.

The yard is a wreck and Im not sure I have the energy or desire to pull it together. At least I have a few weeks before I can actually start planting. At this point Im ready to throw a few geraniums in a pot and call it a garden. Maybe its male menopause. Maybe Im depressed. I dont know.

Maybe I just need some sleep.
