Mom ... Is ... NOT ... Happy!

Mom came home exhausted an' angry this evening.  

She was ticked that her Reading classes got cancelled an' her students (the ones she likes) got absorbed into other electives.  She was peeved that the assistant principal who is in charge of her department couldn't communicate her way out of a wet paper bag ... an' wasn't gonna let Mom know what was going on until next semester.

That was bad enough to get her actin' peckish.  But today, she found out that she has to move all of her stuff from the classroom she's had for fifteen years to move to another classroom halfway across the campus.  Oh, and she has until December 12th to get everything packed so that the custodians can move things in the evening ... an'  the man who is in the room right now won't let Mom send any of her stuff over, so it's in boxes (she got some packed today after school).   An' the quarter is over in ten days.  An' she's got to proctor an' grade finals plus tabulate final grades for her students.   An' the two hundred wreaths an' centerpieces that her club students sold arrived today boxed in twenty big, big, big boxes ... an' the barrels for the San Diego Food Bank's food drive arrived today, too.  An' there are still coupons books left that students need to pick up.

Mom's goin' to bed ... I'm gonna join her an' give her some snuggles.

I think it is a good idea to go snuggle with her and send her some purrs...

That is a very bad day that definitely deserves lots of snuggles. Give her some from us.

Forever Foster said...

Oh man. We would be uber-cranky under those circumstances. When Mum has days like that, she wants to set all the stuff that needs putting somewhere on fire. We don't recommend that course of action. We are sending your mum some snuggles.

Sounds like your Mummy needs some snuggles.

Millie said...

WOw! Yeah, Mom would have been very cranky too if all that had happened to her. Good luck!

Love your card!

That is not nice at all. I shall immediately find these terrible people and go POOP on their pillows. Lucky has agreed to go with me. But she is going to POOP under their blankets at the foot of their beds.

Oh dear! I do not blame your mom for being a little bit crabilated. I hope the new classroom is much better than where she is now.

Hi Daisy Mae! Sometimes when Mom gets crabby, I just snuggle up to her. Then I try to slip her the tongue, or put my butt on her face, so it's fun for both of us, lol! But we hope it all goes smoothly for your mom.

We wanted to thank you for the card and especially for the coupon for our favorite treats! Those are the kind Dad always gets for us. Mom has your card on the mantel where she can see it from her favorite spot on the couch!

Boo-HISS! That is unacceptable for your mom. We hope you all were able to give her lots of comfort to lower her stress level. Best wishes for a better weekend. Just make it to the end of the term.

Oh my - that sounds like our humans would be more than angry too! Snuggling is good. Partying is even better - cheer her up, help her forget that stuff, bring her over to our place, we are having a party for Ruis birthday, with belly dancing!

The best cure for a day like that is kitty snuggles.

Well, phooey! In a BIG way! I'm sure sorry all those things happened and even sorrier that all I can do is purr for your mom, DMM. But, you're such a comfort for her-oh, I know! Make biscuits! My mom loves it when I do that!
