Meet Sue, the famous dino from the Field Museum! Isn’t she gorgeous?
Actually, as my brother and I walked past her on our visit last weekend, my first thought was that she bears a remarkable resemblance to my face before I’ve had coffee in the morning.
Honestly though, this may resemble my facial expression at the office every day this week after working for hours on the press release to end all press releases, and after reading a snippy email.
And this may resemble my reaction last night after glancing at Facebook right before bed and seeing a really nasty status and subsequent conversation thread about someone else between two rather oblivious “friends.” My response was rather explosive.
Today I’m nursing what I’ve come to recognize as an anger hangover. It’s not pretty.
And so I’m just going to be honest with myself, with you, with everyone who might ever fall victim to my wrath and insecurity.
Sometimes I am not a nice person.
Sometimes I handle things badly.
Sometimes I tweet my problems.
Sometimes I need to suck it up and deal.
Meantime, here are some encouraging links for your perusal. Have a wonderful weekend, friends.

Can I just have Jess answer all my emails from here on out?
What are your happiest moments?
