I've noticed since I snapped over a week ago, my fuse is rather short and my tongue is rather loose. I have found myself dropping biting words, out of earshot, at anyone crossing my path who I feel has done me wrong. Andi and I just ran up to the grocery store for a quick trip for two items. I carried her in, because it was going to be a fast in-and-out, and because I don't think she's quite strong enough to hold herself on her own in the shopping cart. She might be, but, I want to get one of those protective shopping cart pads to help keep the germs away. In any case, I find myself annoyed with anyone that doesn't yield to a Mom carrying a baby. People are so self-involved and ignorant of the people around them, it makes me so mad, because if they don't pull their head out, they could bring danger to us. So, I found myself muttering down the aisles, 'don't mind me, just carrying a baby here is all...' I have so little patience for people and their self-absorbed stupidity. Given what we've been through, I can only imagine these people have their own layers of hell going on, but, still, as a parent, my view has changed and any kid melts my heart. They should come first. The yield to pedestrians sign should really be a yield to an Andi Bean sign. She should have the right of way.
