Sorry, I just have to rant a little and all my outlets are unavailable to me. Why? Because my MIL finally joined FB (gee thanks - the one place I could at least suggest frustration), and I feel bad sending my hubby a rant email about his own mom. I'm staying with her 6 hours from home to be on moderate bed rest and closer to the hospital. It's been over a month and I'm going INSANE...
- when you have two animals that shed, one should CLEAN. Cleaning entails vacuuming on a regular basis, dusting, keeping the animals out of the kitchen/off the counters/etc. And OFF the furniture. Now, this is a tad hypocritical b/c I have two dogs that are allowed in the kitchen, but they can't reach the counters and are not encouraged to beg b/c they don't get table scraps except once in a blue moon. Yes, our dogs are allowed on two pieces of furniture, but we vacuum regularly!
- most people do not eat with their mouths open or make noises while they eat. Argh! A trait I am so glad my hubs did not inherit!!
- WW will not work if you have no self control. With triplets I'm supposed to be eating quite a bit daily. Sometimes I even bring in things that most wouldn't such as chips or cookies. I try to keep them in my room, but if I ever bring them out it's like the vultures circle. Today she was in the back room talking on the phone so I brought out a few pringles - when she came into the living room i hear "PRINGLES!" and she rushes over to grab some. She buys me food, then eats it regularly. UGH!
- it is 2011. You do not need to yell into the phone to be heard. I can hear phone conversations from anywhere in the house. This am I was trying to fall back asleep, which is not an easy feat for me at the moment, but instead all I heard was her talking to my SIL at 7:30am!
This all gets exacerbated because she was supposed to have hip replacement surgery which meant she wasn't going and doing anything. She had been a pretty active retiree, but the hip changed all that. It was initially scheduled for 4-25 but postponed to 5-13, and now postponed indefinitely because of a heart blockage issue. I do truly feel for her, but having two people basically bed ridden in the same house is making me crazy.
I just want my life back. I miss my husband. I miss my house. I miss my dogs. I miss my cooking, cooking with my husband, and my husbands cooking. God give me the strength to get through the summer. Thanks so much for giving me an outlet for my frustration. I'm just extra cranky today.
