I'm too busy being Grumpet

I am having an extremely Grumpet kind of day (Grumpet clearly being a grumpy muppet).  I'm homesick. Very very homesick. 

I even tried to cover up the homesickness by eating four Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.

It helped a little.

So, um, that's what's new with me. What's new with you?


  1. Hope today is better.

    We have a cat named Grompet.

  2. Totally thought you said Grommit. Hope you get a better day today. Whats new with me? I'm starving. Being on a diet sucks major

  3. I understand how it feels when you get homesick. But the best way for me to beat it is by doing something that occupies me, like writing or blogging.

    Hope you get a better day. :)

  4. Ah.. Comfort food, don't give into it. I've had a decent day, hope you do too.

  5. I love peanut butter cups. So good.
    Hope you feel better soon :)

  6. Skype! Get your family on the horn and skype! That's what I do when I'm homesick. As opposed to home sick, where I am now, recovering from knee surgery yesterday!

  7. hahaha. Well the reese's peanutbutter cups didn't do the trick?!? I was convinced those were magical :)

  8. When I studied abroad I was miserably homesick. I coped by racking up a ridiculously large phone bill. ;) Don't know how you do it....

  9. I was doing great until I read about Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.... Now I will be miserable until I can put one in my mouth! I hope today is kinder to you.

  10. It might be the time of the year..or the weather..but everyone seems to be catching a cold of some kind around me...which means I wonder when I'll get sick.

    Sorry to hear you are homesick. Some extra cuddling might be in order from someone...& a few phone calls back home, included.

  11. Reese's always makes things better. Of this I am sure. ;) Feel better soon!

  12. Awww, sorry you are having a bad day, lady!!! Feel better!

  13. I could do with any kind of chocolate... I'm on the job hunt on a serious note. One more day at my current job is one less day I'm living! *sigh*

  14. Totally understand about having a "grumpet" day! Reese's always make my day better. Or any kind of chocolate. :) Speaking of, I just may have to go get some because this day is turning out to be crazy!

    Hope your's improves!

  15. sometimes the best thing you can do is just distract yourself with something like a feel good cheesy movie. that's what i usually did when i was homesick while living in the UK. either that or heading out for a walk in an attempt to remind myself that being away from home wasn't *so* bad.

    hope you feel better!

  16. I am having a grumpet day too =(

  17. :HUGS: Feel better :( Here's to TOMORROW being a better day!

    I have a giveaway on my blog, if that'll hep you feel any better? teehee!

  18. awww that's a cute expression!
    Hope tomorrow is more of a huppet day! (happy-muppet?) ...or maybe muppy? that could work hehe :o)

  19. Been there done that...aren't those days the worst? Fortunately, things always seem better by the next morning (usually)!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! I have been enjoying yours and your extremely witty writing...always a favorite of mine :) I like to think of myself as a clever writer but yours seems a bit more effortless :)

    I find your journey and writing super interesting and will definitely be sticking around to read more! I hope you'll consider following mine too :)

  20. Awww DEEEEE!! Don't go down the grumpet road :)) COOK something instead!! Lol, coming from me that's terrible because I can't cook to save my life but when I do miss home, I call my mum, or a friend, or a loved one and make something I only have back there :))

    Hope you feel the sunshine soon

    I love how you keep your sense of humor. Grumpy muppet = grumpet...LOL.
