And there is no good reason for it. I just am a crank, and have been for the last 3 days. I don't know why, I don't care why, I just want to stop being ruth the Grouch. I think I'm cranky just for crankiness' sake. Grumble, mumble, kvetch, grouse, complain, whine.
Whine. Oooh, I can do that big time today. Naa naaa naaaaaa.
We did have a lovely weekend up in MA visiting the kids and the grands, but I was grouchy there too.

And now I'm going to get my act together, and prep some yarn. Maybe I'll dye some quarrelsome yarn. Heh heh heh.
Love, and grouchiness to you all,
ruth the Irascible!
kv - A vacation would be nice around now. Not a family visit, but a real vacation with no one to consider but each other. Family trips are very nice but not vacations. Plus, I have cabin fever. Grump, grouse, kvetch, etc. etc.
itsJUSTme-wendy - Nice try, Wendy, but I'm as irascible as before. The poor Hubbo better run and hide from me today. The vengeful ruth is on the rampage. Good thing the Olympics is on; this way I can rant at them, too. grouchy giggle!
baby face - That's because I grabbed a thesaurus for synonyms. Hey, they librarian may be retired, but she still thinks like a librarian.
Vaughnde - Nope, long past menopause. Nah, I'm just in a crabby mood. I'll get out of it eventually. But it is so much fun to grouse about it in a blog! Look at all the responses I'm getting. And we are all grouchy today. Cabin fever! I wanna go to Cape Cod and not wear a winter coat. Grumble, complain, whine, etc, etc.
