I'm Feelin' Ya, Alexander




I liked this book when I was a kid. I remember that Alexander snaps out of his funk somehow, but I can't remember how.

It's muggy and hot outside. I am out of allergy meds. I have a headache. I'm hungry, but food is stupid. The dog is stinky and needs a bath. The dog is stinky and has gas. I got a sugar-coated, but still demoralizing email today. The refrigerator is making sounds like it's dying, and the pets find it very alarming. I have lots of laundry to do. It's a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.

Yet, I have so much for which I should be thankful. Not appreciating all the great stuff makes me feel even worse.

Off to get some allergy meds and coffee. Then I'll bathe the dog and finish the laundry. Maybe that will make me feel better?

This was one of my favorite books when I was little. In fact, I still love it, so much so that I got a shiny new copy for my kids so that my old beloved copy wouldn't get messed up. He basically just gets over it by going to bed thinking about moving to Australia. Hope you feel better soon.

Been having similar THNGVB days myself. Hang in there.
