Let me start off by saying that the reason I’m surprised at myself is because fiance and I have a very healthy relationship/communication, we both don’t like to fight, instead we resolve. BUT this morning for SOME reason (I actually know the reasons lol) I woke up and started in on him about slacking on things he should have had done. Specifically I said “So when are you going to install the dishwasher, it’s only been sitting there for 2 months” he went on to say that he needed to repair the space it’s supposed to fit into first and like a snapper I said “oh ok, so in other words it’s going to sit there for another couple months” lol. He was just calm and collected with a look like “wow.”
I realized later that the reason I woke up like that was just because I’m overwhelmed. We just moved to a new house and city 2-3 months ago. I have 2 bridal showers coming up that I am unprepared for (they are themed, and the hosts want me to dress for the theme and I can’t come up with anything!) Besides the wedding planning which is crunch time (60 something days) we just discovered that school for this distric starts way earlier than most, like in a week! (we have his daughter) I guess I just woke up thinking my that I have to handle all of these major things simultaneously, and my first thought was ” you asshole, you don’t even have my dishwasher installed to make my life easier” ANYONE ELSE have major bitch moments that surprise even you?

Unfortunately, I think most of use have or have had those moments. I’m sure you have apologized by now.
Instead of dwelling on that, tell us about the themed shower and see if we can help you come up with an outfit.

So…. I have stopped asking and biting my tongue now for about 3 months about when are the “H-E-double hockey sticks” are the tires going to get out of my livingroom! My wireless mouse’s batteries are dying, and they’re in that cabinet! I have 20 or so batteries in there, makes me so mad that the solution is to go out and buy one! BUT I have 20 in the stupid cabinet!!!!!arghhhhh.

O no! I’ve been there UGH. It’s like I can’t even control myself when I’m saying those things even though I know that I’m going to regret it. Fiance is great about it though, and I always apologize. It doesn’t happen too often but lately with the wedding in 3 weeks, it’s been happening more than I’d like.

First, why not post about the themed bridal showers and the bees can help you think of a themed costume? I love parties like that and it moght be fun.
Second,yes, I think we all have moments like that. I am a straw that broke the camels back type person so ai will put up woth a lot of crap, but at some point ai just explode and can’t take it anymore.

Oh yea! I had a complete and total meltdown a couple weeks back because while I’m studying for the bar, moving, and planning the wedding his only tasks were to book the hotel room, call the people who did not RSVP (4 couples) and pick a moving company. It took THREE WEEKS to get that done. I wish my life was so slack.
I think it’s natural to snap when you’re overwhelmed, it’s just a good thing that we picked partners who are calm under that kind of pressure and understanding.

0h god i have moments when i decided to let out all the things that have been bugging me. my last one was basically:
-why has the old fridge been sitting in the backyard for almost a year
-why is the oven *still* broken (again, more than one year)
– why is the old mattress still in the the yard (has been 2-3 months, im expecting it still be there next year)
– why is the closet not set up, all our clothes are in piles on the floor/bed (1 month)
i dont want to spend all my time nagging, but if i only ask once then it doesnt get done *ever*. then i brood about it, stay silent for a while and let it out in one go! and fi is like ‘where did that come from? ill do it soon”. sigh.
