Because some days you just have to vent…
Today has been a really crappy day… Starting with the biggest thing, my grandmother has Alzheimer’s that has come on rather quickly and her delusions are terrible. My mother is basically being forced (by my grandmother and her delusions) to call law enforcement and have her commited to a home against her will. Which is awful for everyone involved. I feel so bad, and I’m 2,000 miles away so I can’t really help anything.
On top of that we got home from vacation yesterday and I noticed one of our cats has a swollen eye/face. He’s acting normal (though standoffish, which he usually is after we’ve been gone), eating etc. There’s no discharge or obvious trauma, but it’s definitely not good. I called the vet and they basically said call back tomorrow if it isn’t better.
AND our air conditioner just broke (or broke a few days ago while we were gone) and leaked water everywhere… The carpet in our guest bedroom is all wet and we don’t have an AC at least until the repair guys come and fix it… if they can. Not to mention the high for today is 91. UGH.
Also, we’re TTC and we traveled when I was supposed to O, so now I have no idea what’s going on with that whole situation… which isn’t so terrible, but just annoying on top of everything else.
Anyone else have anything they want to vent about?? Do it here!!

Sorry you’re having a bad day :(. I’ve had several clients no show me today — not terrible, just disappointing.
However, I’m dealing with some in-law drama that just refuses to die down. DH and I are emotionally exhausted from it.
I’m also sorry to hear about your grandmother. Mine was recently diagnosed with lung cancer, and will be starting radiation next week. Even though she’s in her late 80s, it’s still so sad and upsetting to see her health decline.

Ugh, today sucks. I just saw on facebook that this girl I used to work with is pregnant. We have been TTC for 27 cycles and she didn’t want kids. What the f*ck?

I applied for an internal position almost two weeks ago and haven’t heard a darn thing. Trying hard not to get discouraged.

@littlemisst08: Same here. I applied for a position that I had the perfect references for and was totally qualified for and…they just relisted it. Bah.

I have a son with OCD&ADHD and this week has totally sucked. It’s been a real challenge everyday. I want to crawl back into bed a cry but I have to be strong!!!!!

Two weeks ago my pony got attacked by a bear and no we’re treating upwards of 5 hours a day, plus travel time for me as she’s at my Mom’s, which is 45 minutes away. Its been stressful enough as it is and then lightning struck my pickup on the highway in Alberta on Tuesday and killed it on the spot. I feel kind of like the universe is super mad at me and I don’t understand why it is doing this to me!!

I don’t have anything to complain about (TODAY ONLY…check back tomorrow!) but I just wanted to say I’m sorry to all of you!! I wish babies, jobs, easy parenting, clients who show up, healthy family, healthy cats, fixed AC’s and for your inlaws to stop being assholes.

@Coral99: Aww, thanks! If my inlaws actually could stop being assholes, this week would go from awful to amazing! Fingers crossed

- Wedding: March 2014 - Brazil Room
I’m among a whole site of nearly 200 people that are getting laid off in the next couple of months. As the time gets closer, it’s getting more and more depressing. I work for one of the head bosses and everyone thinks I know information about the layoffs… but I just don’t. I also don’t have a real plan for after since my FI is planning to support me until I find something else to do. I just hear so many negative comments everyday that I feel like I’m going to lose it. Today is especially bad and I almost want to call out sick and go home and bury my head in my pillow 🙁
Also, I can’t get FI to make solid decisions about the dang wedding. We’re 9 months out and still haven’t picked colors or taken engagement photos for our save the dates. He even tried to bail out of the engagement photos because he thought they would be too “staged”. This is of course after everything has already been arranged and he’s been saying for months that he would do them with me. 🙁

@Coral99: thanks, the job postings haven’t been taken down so I optimistically hope they are waiting for enough applicants to apply before having interviews.

I was writing getting my addresses ready to print and I saw my Grandmother’s. She passed away suddenly a couple weeks ago and I cannot bear to take her off the list.
I am tempted to just send the invitation to the address anyways (in Kentucky). Or I could take it to her grave since it is literally a block away from my house. SHE WAS SUPPOSED TO BE SITTING IN THE AUDIENCE not in the ground the next block over. Gah.
**AND what do I do with her Corsage – cancel it?!? I can’t deal with this.

My Dr stressed to me yesterday that I should try to have kids ASAP bc of a chronic condition I have. We were planning to TTC in about 2 years and I don’t know if I want kids right now, but what if we wait to long and then can’t? I’m so angry at the universe.
AND my stupid puppy mill supporting SIL says flippantly that if her dog doesn’t ‘calm down’ she will find it a better home when they get pregnant. how is it supposed to ‘calm down’ if you keep it in a crate all day?
Also, there is a HUGE difference between ‘we can’t afford it’ and choosing not to spend you money on something. like when you brag about what shows you are going to see in Vegas, while not being able to ‘afford’ to take the kids to Disney for 1 freakin day like you promised them multiple times in our presence.

Add me to the shitty day list!
– Work sucks. I can’t stand my boss and I’m just done… time to job hunt, again!
– It’s raining. Like, really raining. We’ve had rainfall warnings for two days and it’s cold. I want summer!
– I was so mad at work stuff today that I forgot to eat lunch and now I’m starving
– I feel like crap
– We still don’t have a photographer for the wedding and I’m getting really tired of looking
– I don’t know how much more baby/child comments I can take. We’re not pregnant and won’t be anytime soon, it’s out of our hands and there’s nothing we can do about it. It would just be nice if someone would focus on something other than how we have to have kids soon or how great they are or how our life will suck without them
Wtf, why am I crying?! I need to go home.

@MrsEdamame: oh no! Sorry about the in-law drama! That’s never fun.. And I’m really sorry about your grandmother. Mine is 84 and although she’s lived a long life, this isn’t how she wanted it to end (and she makes that known constantly). It’s just terrible. I mostly feel bad for my mom who got deemed her only “good” child (she is convinced the other two are stealing from her… they are not, that’s just the disease talking) and has to try and pick up the pieces constantly.
@Birdee106: That’s a big blow, I’m sorry hun! I know it doesn’t help (and you’ll want to smack me for saying it… I get it) but it will happen eventually, and if not, there are other options; so eventually ya’ll will have a little bundle to enjoy.
@littlemisst08: & @vorpalette: that would be really frustrating! Hope you both hear something soon!
@Holly77: I’m so sorry! It has to be difficult trying to stay so strong all the time! ::hugs::
@lalalyanne: I don’t even know what to say, that is HORRIBLE! I hope your pony gets better quickly and will insurance cover a new(ish) car? That is some crazy luck. Hope you are staying safe up there, hasn’t the weather been crazy?
@NovaGrey: aww, that’s really rough. That’s a LOT of people! I’m sorry! And if it helps at all, my DH was NO help during wedding planning and had zero opinions on anything… I ended up just buckling down and making the decisions myself and the wedding ended up being beautiful (and he was VERY helpful for the actual getting things ready part)… Sometimes boys really just don’t care about that kind of stuff, but they will appreciate all the work after the fact. 🙂
