This is kind of neat, from Sylvia’s blog: (You use your birthdate to find what tree you are)
Weeping Willow (Melancholy) – likes to be stress free, loves family life, full of hopes and dreams, attractive, very empathetic, loves anything beautiful, musically inclined, loves to travel to exotic places, restless, capricious, honest, can be influenced but is not easy to live with when pressured, sometimes demanding, good intuition, suffers in love until they find that one loyal, steadfast partner; loves to make others laugh.
Hmmm…that’s not bad, although traveling to exotic places is a little off base considering I damn near break out in hives if I have to leave New Hampshire, and go into full anaphylactic shock if I have to leave New England.
But I needed a feel good moment today. For as long as I can remember I’ve fought insomnia–I can actually remember lying awake in a toddler bed–and the clock changes are hell on me. I am literally snarling at people today, so I’m just sitting over here in the corner. The change affects the short kid, too, so we’ve had a challenging day. The husband and the tall kid are impervious, the peckahheads.
The husband’s ever-so-sympathetic response is always “Look at the clock–that’s what time it is.”
So, anyway. I’m under my not-fit-for-company rock today. :snore:
