Just a Nasty Day

BLAH. That is how I feel.

I slept like crap last night. DH couldn't fall asleep last night so he kept me up until midnight watching ridiculous YouTube videos. Then I had to let DH sleep in while I got up with DS at 6 am because DH has to work until 2 am tonight.
My water heater is not working again. I had it fixed 7 days ago because we had no hot water, and now we have no hot water again. So now I have to sit around the house waiting for a technician to stop by. Plus I can't have a shower.
(TMI) I have diarrhea this morning. My stomach is hurting and I am having major contractions in my back.
My house is a mess.
I have overdue items for the library that I can't seem to find time to take back.
My kids are hyper and I have no energy to entertain them.
It's cold and rainy outside.

OK, vent over. Nasty, nasty day.

Thankfully my mom is taking the kids for a sleepover tonight Biggrin But she won't be picking them up until after DS's nap this afternoon - so I have to make it at least 5-6 more hours. DH is also gone all evening working (late) so I can have a bath (provided I have hot water) and go to bed early. I think I will order in supper too.

Anyone want to join my pity party?

Yesterday and now again today I'm in such a cranky mood I'm trying to remind myself to not respond to people with the first thing that jumps to mind b/c I'm probably being a total B!TCH!

Work is a disaster. They don't know who will step in for me. There is a guy I work with who is driving me bat-sh!t- CRAZY. He's the kind of coworker who can NEVER give anyone credit for doing a nice job and insists on replying to EVERY e-mail with his own opinions even if they aren't grounded in fact. It's a little better only b/c he is driving our boss crazy too. But he's likely going to have to step in at least partially for me which makes me cringe all over and makes the thought of leave give me an anxiety attack.

Then I have a wicked cough. I sound like a freaking seal. I got this cough from this girl they've insisted I work with at work -- there was some hope she might be able to help out while I'm gone but they only gave her 1-2 days a week to train and she has ZERO background in what I do so EVERYONE (except the morons in HR that apparently my boss couldn't get to understand) knew it would be way too little time to learn such an intense position. But she came in one day with a horrible cough, coughed on me for 10 hours and then went on vacation. Now I have a horrible cough, Evan has a horrible cough and every time I wake up to pee at night I spend 45 minutes coughing before I can get back to sleep.

Evan is crabby b/c he too has a cough. DH is crabby b/c his work is going no better than mine.

I sit on the board of directors as VP of the rescue organization I volunteer with and they are also a mess. Everyone is too busy to get things done so I'm trying but I want to scream and yell that I'm f'ing busy too and they need to step up or I'm not going to come back to the board next year.

I'm gaining like 2 lbs a week right now. I'm not wicked swollen but I'm retaining a good bit of water and feel gross. I'm ready to not be pregnant but have no doubt the kid will hang on until 40 weeks. Which is probably a good thing b/c he still has no bedroom LOL

I'm trying hard to remind myself the big things - the important thing - are all good. Baby is kicking away. Except the hacking cough I am healthy. This too shall pass...

Thanks guys, this is exactly how things have been going for me lately!
Minus the contractions and back pain, that was last week;)
It has been difficult because my SO's car was a week amd a half in the shop and he was using mine working all the timeand I was house bound and miserable. I cannot get my daughter outside to save my life, and so my border collie was bored too...I have been letting Mia watch way too much tv and going around achy and in a funk,

We are so not prepared for the LO TO Arrive. Last time everything was in order, this time he is sure to come early because I still have not made it out to BRU or figured out the car seat issues. We gave ours away but cannot ask for them back because my frinds baby is so tiny she is still in need of them...

Today is a little different however, we are having friends over tomorrow so I am not sure if I am nesting or cleaning because of that. I am also am in an almost good mood this hour:eek:, isn't that a labor sign,lol?

Aww-I'm sorry you ladies are having rough days/times. It sucks sometimes when it feels like crap is just piling up.
and Katie--wow!!! I never heard you write like that!!! You always seem so sweet and happy in your posts--so it must be pretty awful for you to use strong language. Smile
AFM--I am kind of in between. I am miserable some times because I am uncomfortable, have too much crap to do around this house, have a toddler who can be very toddler-ish, and a husband who doesn't really like to pick up after himself. (I actually called him on it--he left a pair of boxers on the floor RIGHT NEXT TO A LAUNDRY BASKET--I left them there for three days till I decided I couldn't take it anymore and picked them up so I could wash them.)
I don't sleep well--I was up every 45 minutes to an hour last night to pee. And I want to take a nap but I've got too much stuff to do around this house to nap right now.

I got the house picked up, DH is home from work, and it looks like the weather Sunday morning may hold out for a trip to the pumpkin patch. I do wish work wasn't such a garbled mess right now though! Oh well, I can only do so much then I will be on leave and will handle it all again 12 weeks later....right?! Smile

I have hot water Biggrin And thankfully I didn't get charged for the service visit today. He even replaced a thermocoupler and didn't charge me for it. He said he was too lazy to write up a receipt and said I was the lucky recipient of "Free Friday" LOL. So he pretty much just took pity on me, since he was just here 7 days ago.

Only 2 more hours until the kids are gone for the night!!!

My contractions and stomach pain have eased up.

I think once the kids are gone I'll run some errands (kid free!) and pick up supper (Chinese?) Then I'll come home and be a lazy vegetable all night. Maybe eat some icecream. Or rainbow sherbet. Blum 3

I had a pretty crappy day yesterday. I sent the kids to bed and then when Rob came home I cried to him how crappy a day I had.. It's pretty bad when I feel like I don't like my own son Sad Don't get me wrong I love him to death and would do anything for him, but when he is screaming at the top of his lungs over every little thing and blaming me that his lego house broke because I didn't help him right that second because I was busy with Kay. I feel so bad for even having those thoughts and then I felt even worse for saying the words "I don't like my son right now" to rob. He is only 5 so I know it's his age but it just seems to be getting worse the older he gets. And if he doesn't get his way all hell breaks loose. Crappy day plus crappy feelings Sad

I completely understand how you feel, Sandra! I am having a rough week. Besides feeling so physically exhausted, I must pack up our house to move in 4 weeks, figure out who is taking the kids when I go into labour and for how long, find another school for dd to go to once we have moved, and get her off to school M-W-F, take care of a crazy 2.5yr old.. oh, and did I mention pack up a WHOLE stinkin house? I have had a lot of offer for help, but my dh says that packing is a personal thing, and I can handle it. Umm.. I pack about 5 boxes, then have to sit down and take a break. Its ridiculous. He is starting the reno's on the house we are moving to next week, so he will be gone doing that. I am just feeling really overwhelmed! Today Noah woke up at 6:30am WIDE AWAKE.. thankfully I just gave him some dry cereal and a drink in bed and he played for an hour, but then dd was up at 7:15, comes into our room, and says "Move over, Mom"... seriously? LOL. Then by 8 I was out of bed, the kids cried/fought for an hour, and dh rolls out of bed at 9am to have a shower. By then I had left to return our dvd's to the library to avoid late fees, and then took both grocery shopping. Ugh! Now that I write that all out, it doesn't seem like a lot, but just being almost 35wks preggo, and moving in 4 weeks, and not knowing when baby is going to arrive, I just feel so unprepared!
Okay, vent over. Kids are watching a movie downstairs and I'm enjoying a cup of coffee.
Sorry to hear everyone else is struggling right now, but I am thankful I'm not the only one.

My wise friend said about her kids, I have never loved and hated someone so much at the same time. We all have days when we can't stand our kids, terrible but true. Luckily the live side is so much stronger and the bad feelings are easily scraped off the surface.
