So I started off my week by finding out that the clerk at the base where my FI will be deploying out of (it is the other side of the country from where we live) just decided to book his flight home this coming weekend since it was easier for her to find him a flight on that day. Even though… he is cleared by his captin to fly out as soon as his admin work was complete, which would have been Wednesday this week. When he spoke with her, her comment was “oh, its only a couple of days, who cares?”.
Only a couple of days extra to spend with your loved ones before deploying to a warzone?
To boot, the half of my family that doesn’t live in our city is coming to town and throwing a BBQ to meet my FI for the first time on Saturday, which he will NOW MISS!
He is ‘pulling’ rank and seeing if he can change the flight on his own (its a non refundable flight though).
Needless to say, I am spitting nails and not a happy camper.
So I’m trying to think of something good to balance out the bad (besides the “I’m healthy, I have a job and a roof over my head stuff.. cause that ain’t cutting it right now)
-Boston Rob won Survivor last night
– It’s almost noon on Monday which means I get to leave work and go home in 4 hours
– I got a seat on the bus on the way to work today
So what made/ruined your day?

Sorry to hear that! Some people will never understand how just one extra day can mean so much to someone. I hope they get it all worked out.
What ruined my day is that I had a mammogram come back abnormal so now I have to get an ultra sound done. Breast cancer runs in my family, so I’m trying not to freak out. Trying to stay busy as much as possible, I guess that’s why I’ve resurfaced from lurkdom and decided to comment on your post. 🙂

SO Shitty! Good luck and I am sending your all the good vibes I have that it’s nothing.
What is your ‘made’?

I’m extremely sorry about your situation. I hope several more things make your day today and all subsequent days!
Today I have had quite a few things make my day!
I get to work from home tomorrow!
My mom snuck by my office and paid for my lunch!
I’ve started eating only clean foods and it has honestly made such a difference in my overall mood/feeling.
I drove to work at 415am so I didn’t hit traffic and I get to leave in less than 3 hours 🙂
I get to play on WB to pass the time. I refuse to put anything negative in this post!

I woke up with a headache and the advil doesn’t seem to be doing a whole hell of a lot for it. Just feeling a bit off today…
It’s close to noon, which means lunch and then only a few more hours of work! and then I see my FI and we can chill.
I think I’m going to have a phone date with a really good friend (one of my BM’s, who I haven’t chatted with in too long!)

I got my wisdom teeth out last thursday, so on the upside I’m feeling a hell of a lot better today than I did last week. But on the downside, it’s still achy and hard to chew certain food. BOO
I have finished 47 invitations, only 18 more to go! But on the downside, ugh I have to make 18 invitations and the pocketfolds are so tedious!
All in all, life is good, it’s a beautiful day and the sun is shining, I’m gonna count my blessings!
@tomboypink: definitely thinking about you today, just said a little prayer for you!

@tomboypink While I can’t say everything will be ok, I have been in the same situation. It runs in my family as well and I’ve had to have ultrasounds for abnormalities. I can only offer support and send you cyber hugs. It’s scary, but you will get through it.
I woke up this morning and forgot that I had zero gas in my car and my tire was almost flat. Not a good start to the week, but it could be worse. My Advil isn’t working, either.

@stellablue5997: Advil took the day off?

Made: Three of my best girl friends will be here for a 4 day visit on THURSDAY! SO excited.
Ruined: Not really ruined but I swear my FH’s ex wife is just the biggest pain in the ass ever and I greatly look forward to the day she finally gets a boyfriend or (I can only pray) gets remarried so she has somebody to share her problems with that is NOT her ex husband.

Ruined: I woke up this morning aching all over and with a sore throat (I was the same all last week but it came back even worse this morning), hauled myself out of bed, went to work…and found out no one else in my department is here, so I should have just stayed home sick.
Made: Last night I finally got DH to draft out the thank you notes for his side of the family (I still had to write them out nicely on the cards, but at least he did the legwork for me since I haven’t met most of them) and I get to pop them in the mail today on my way home and be rid of them.

I’m so sorry they’re putting you through that. Only jerks don’t know what another day with your SO means:(
What ruined my day was that I found out that out health insurance dropped me and my DH and I are ttc. There is no way we can afford to pay $20,000 + out of pocket.

Wow, that is so horrible of her! I can’t understand how someone who works with the troops doesn’t understand their huge sacrifices. I work for the troops indirectly and I understand immensely!

Ruined: (weekend, not day) Mom bitched me out for basically being excited for my bridal shower. I asked to see her invitation (I didn’t get one, wtf? It’s not a surprise party, either). When she found out that BM S sent a pic of it to me (because I REALLY wanted to see it!) she threw it at me saying “have fun, I’m not going” and then went on to call me a huge manipulator and I have to control everything. She was going to throw me a surprise shower, but blah blah blah (going on and on about how I have NO idea how I come off to people). Then my dad called/texted and emailed about Saavi formalwear not having our wedding listed (he lives OOT), and we talked on the phone in a VERY cold manner, making me believe that he is STILL bitter about our drama from a month ago.
Made: I GOT MY WEDDING DRESS TODAY! =) Oh, and it fit. haha
