I am pretty grumpy today. It does not seem like something worth blogging about, but I feel like the antelope in the picture. As I get older, I seem to get grumpy less and when it happens I usually know it is happening and know why. On the flip side, it seems to last longer and I seem to be grumpier when it happens. Perhaps I need to golf or hike a mountain or take a nap or just have some time off.

I am grumpy because I have been worn out by some situations and am unhappy with one particular situation involving a friend and an organization I am involved with. As a result, I did not get a lot of sleep and then at 5 am I got up to work out. That made me grumpy too because it was not really that fun and my lifting partner had too much fun with the little fun I was having. It has gotten better, then worse, then better throughout the day. I am reminded that self-knowledge can be a powerful tool and that we are all subject to moods, mistakes and the frailty that is our sinful, human, potential filled nature.
