One of THOSE days

I'm having one of THOSE days.  You know the ones.  Where the alarm goes off and you think you must have set it for the wrong time.  Then you finally get out of bed and would give your right arm to crawl back under the covers.  Yeah, one of those days.

I woke up not feeling well.  Very tired and very achy, despite getting my usual 7ish hours of sleep.  And I'm not talking a little tired and a little achy, but more substantial - like the flu.  Except I don't have the flu.  Maybe it means the babe is going through a growth spurt?  Or maybe I really didn't sleep well.  I don't know what's going on.

Anyway, I dragged myself to work and since I arrived, it's been one thing after another.   I know these little annoyances are nothing, but since I feel terrible, they seem much more significant.  Like not being cc'ed on important project emails.  I should probably be up to date and informed on MY project, no?  Answering the same questions over and over (I just told you yesterday!).  Then there's this summit in October for the document management system we use.  The document management system that I know better than anyone.  And I'm not just saying that to "toot my own horn".  I designed the system, I answer all system related questions, I work with technical experts to make enhancements and improvements.  And everyone knows that I KNOW this system.  I even have a crown with the system name (true story).  So imagine my frustration when my former boss told me he'd be attending the summit and I didn't get an invite.  The best part is, I don't really want to go.  Traveling is tough on W, tough on A, and tough when I'll be 6 months pregnant.  But to not even be asked is upsetting - and maybe even a little a lot insulting.  If anyone is going, it should be ME.  And then, the other pregnant lady in the office walks by (I didn't even know she was pregnant until today).  This lady is 7 months pregnant and smaller than me and she starts talking about how huge she feels. Really?  Just shut up.

So yeah, one of those days.  Perhaps ice cream is in my future...
