Very timely post! Where do I start (I may post some now and keep adding to it)... I've felt we are all a little short with each other and it worries me....(I would suggest a group hug, but I don't think we are ready)..I've noticed this same thing at work and now I'm wondering if there isn't some cosmic force at work here....so..let's get it out in the open....

I'm bothered by a couple of things:
1.Someone is sending anonymous emails to members berating them for things they do or say
2.Egos..leave them at the door!
3.Cell phones!Don't talk while driving..drive while driving!

......more later!

While you're at it, while you're driving don't cut me off! Wait your turn!

Something does seem to be in the air, did someone drop a grouchy bomb on us?

I'm not grouchy.

I just like instigating problems.

I thrive on chaos.

Maybe we're in a transition time here...growing pains or something!! I'm so glad we do get along so nicely though...wouldn't want anyone to think we were mad at each other..or that we couldn't work out our problems...

Must be something in the air....
these days I detest my job (as well as some people I am forced to work with)
I am mad at my husband but for the life of me can't tell you why.
I feel deserted by one of my best friends cuz he'd rather sleep than listen (imagine that!)
My brother doesn't write cuz he's too busy with his job and his web page (which is excellent btw)
My youngest son who moved out and is on his own now wants to move back in cuz "life was easier" and that doesn't sit well with me.
And to top off everything I think my muse died but I can't find the corpse and it STINKS!!!
So....I'm not a happy camper.
Maybe tomorrow will be better. One can only hope.

Grouchy, who's grouchy?  Not me. But for the rest of the ill-contents, it can be attributed to "Spring Sting"...usually hits adults as spring smashes headlong into the last throes of winter, but can attack those still in school who hide their heads in the tomes so they can get the sheepskin [well that ages me] and head out the door to be like the rest of us adults who were wishing we were back in school so we could take off for the summer.  TaDa.

Has anyone noticed that all of the challenges made recently have been on very somber issues?  It's pretty difficult to read so many "heavy" posts and maintain an upbeat attitude.  The somber tone has overtaken this place.  I can't read all of it - and I feel badly about that, because the issues are very important ones.  I won't allow my mood to be affected by it, though - so the alternative for me is to avoid opening and reading works that will bring me down...

We need some SilliNess around here!!..

Shawna I'm with you! I've been really hurt by someone I care very much about.

I can't seem to move forward in much though going backwards is easy, and I'm trying not to do that too!  STRESSED OUT!

Nan, I think many have noticed. And a few attempts have been made to "cheer" things up. But to no avail. I can't read anymore depressing stuff either, even though they are important issues.  I can't say for sure, I know it's affected my mood to some point, but I can't say it was all that.

Sharon I think it can all be worked out, sooner or later

Well, I'm NOT grouchy, depressed or down in the mouth.
I'm one happy camper.
I love the circles of life that spin us around and make us dizzy with love of life.

Have a Coca~Cola and a smile on me !  
Love all of you .... I really do !

I am agreeing with Nan, here .. We 'do' need
some Silliness ... things 'have' been somber
as of late ... and the issues 'are' very
important, indeed ... but now that we have
grown, and continue to do so ... with most
picking up the challenges, it 'is' very hard
to read, post after post, of heartache and
heartbreak that seems never ending ...
I think we do need to have some challenges on
the happy side of the street, so to speak ...
   ...
   Let's get 'Silly' .....
Hugs to All .....

EDGEY?? GROUCHY?? What do you mean??
I'M NOT GRUMPY!


Well, if I've been grumpy around here lately, I surely do apologize. I hope everything else works out for everyone else soon.  

On the somber issues...I've stayed away from them. I tend to brood when I read too much serious stuff. I even had to give up horror novels and serial killer novels for a while because I got too paranoid. Okay..I'm rambling maybe. I hope no one is mad because I've stayed away from the more serious issues.  

NAN! What do you mean we need some silliness around here? We have you.   No one could replace you.

I can get REAL silly, but I warn you ...

Must be the caffeine in that Coca~Cola !

Thank you for not 'dieting' me !
I like the ~Real Thing~

Or perhaps we should 'doctor' Pepper !

LOL .... now who says this place isn't FUN !

Oooooh....Marge, thank you, thank you, thank you for offering the True Nectar of the Gods...DR PEPPER.

Hmm...I reckon there are several reasons for people being on edge....as I check the calendar, I can't help but notice it's near the end of the month...PMS anyone?  *cackles*

Also, it is time for paying bills...and nobody likes that....

And, as we near the first week of May, not only is it Cinqo de Mayo...a festival for wherever two or more Hispanics are gathered, but also the GREAT CONJUNCTION of the major planets.  Holst, anyone?

It bugs me to know that with all the members we have, so few take advantage of the discussion forums! It would be nice to see some of the newer people over here....I say let's invite them...every time you reply to a poem, ask them to come to Alley for a discussion!!!

What's bugging me???? Well for starters push up bras that don't come with the "push", child safety tops that you have to have a child open, spineless weasels that send me e-mails with no names, when my phone rings and there's no one there, and finally when it rains all week except on my day off....yep that about covers it....  
And Marge.....You are way to silly   and we love ya that way

Well, I, for one, am not grouchy and I resent anyone who calls me grouchy. I REFUSE to be considered grouchy! If there's anything that really gets under my skin it's someone who calls me grouchy when I'm not! How dare anyone refer to me as grouchy! I do everything I can to be non-grouchy and what recognition do I get for it? This is sickening to me. I'd better stop while I still have my pleasing disposition else I might actually become
GROUCHY!!!

Yes, I'm guilty of having the grouchy bug myself..  Someone I care a lot about has been hurting me (well, several actually), my classes at school are insanely boring and I wonder why I'm even there, my family is pretty apathetic, I have so much swirling in my brain and no one I feel I can trust with it, for gosh sakes, even my doggie is sick! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!  Okay, breathe Krista...take it one day at a time..things will get better..or they could get worse...ah!  Does anybody know of an 'off' button for thoughts?  I'm in dire need of one.....

My last post before hiatus...
I was a bit grouchy at one point, and I owe an apology to PdV.  The child abuse challenge...I never meant to come across as attacking you, never meant to cause bickering...
I am sorry.

I get grouchy when I don't get enough sleep (like tomorrow because I am still here at this ungodly hour...no time to be here for a long time and I HAVE to catch up). Generally I have been in a good mood lately, spring is here!! The sun is shining, the weather is warming and ball season is upon me. *jumping with excitement*

*moving over to sit beside Mike...whispering soothing words of comfort in his ear while stroking his beautiful white hair* There now love, no one said you were grouchy. We all love you and think you are fun to be around (stiffling a yawn).

Marge....girl your circles are dizzying me (I'm blonde and have enough trouble with being dizzy already) Would you mind terribly sitting for a moment?...lol.

I love this place!!!!!!! And all you fabulous people.

It  must be in the air world wide I think!!
Things ain't no picnic in the land Down Under too.
I feel left out of everything, misunderstood, and simply HATE being accused of things I am not!!  Innuendo and snide comments really hurt me!  I have spent the last 2 years of my life becoming a better person, pushing out the bad, and replacing with good and love.  And for anyone to think I am NOT what I APPEAR to be, really hurts me.
I've finally reached this wonderful plateau in my life, and it's like certain people are trying to hack it away, make it crumble,, so I will fall again.
No way!  I won't let 'em.  I wouldn't say I was grouchy either, more 'confused and hurt' than anything else.
And now I feel a bit better for having deburdened myself
