Anybody else having a rotten beginning to their week? For some reason today I am feeling beyond stressed and just can’t shake the feeling that I just want to disappear.
It started when my dad sent me a text message asking what me and SO were doing for Thanksgiving. I’m already on edge about the holidays because to be honest, they never really run all that smoothly. Fights always ensue, blame is always doled out, and guilt is laid on thick. I guess that’s what happens when you and your SO both have separated parents and there are now 4 families to accomodate. Toes get stepped on, and frankly I’m a little tired of the less than understanding comments from certain people.
So anywho, I told him that I wasn’t sure and would like to see what my mom was doing this year as I didn’t spend ANY holiday with her last year on the day it was marked as well as she has a new husband which means knew traditions. His response? “You can do both you know”. Yes, I DO know, and thank you for offering to stress me out and stretch me in two different ways instead of just saying, oh I don’t know, “Ok, let me know what you figure out”. Instead he goes on to say that I’m making things difficult and he’s trying and some more “woe is me” garbage. How am I making this difficult? You asked, I told you I wasn’t sure, and told you what I had planned on doing, and I’m being difficult? I ended up pretty much calling him a drama king and that we would figure something out whether it meant the day of Thanksgiving or otherwise.
This then followed up by what’s turning into quite the broken record of a request, and I’m finding myself just beside…myself… and about to rip my hair out.
So, I talk with a friend for a bit, vent and get things off my chest, call my mom, the usual of what we do to calm down, and then I’m fine.
And then the work drama kicks in with people not knowing the proper procedures of things and like always I’m feeling stuck behind a glass wall watching a train wreck as I’m still in training and having to wait on the go ahead from people higher up.
C’mon 5 o’clock! I’m ready to go home!

It is 3 pm and I am still in my PJs. I cannot get my ass in gear to save my life today. I don’t want to do anything, which apparently includes a shower.
I am ready for it to be Tuesday. This Monday is a total downer.

Oh, honey I am right there with you! Mine started by my alarm going off and me thinking “Why is it going off, its the weekend – I have nothing to do!” UGH! I’ve only done that one other time, what a let down.
“For some reason today I am feeling beyond stressed and just can’t shake the feeling that I just want to disappear.” I couldn’t have said it better. Work is INSANE (why am I on here right now? LOL that just means I’ll have to stay late!)
Also, I can sympathize with you on the holiday thing. My parents are divorced, and I am also very close to one set of grandparents, so that makes 4 sets of families for us also. It’s not easy, that’s for sure. I am boycotting Thanksgiving this year though and SO and I are cooking for his mom and dad only (my family lives 2 hrs away).
Everything will work itself out. Most importantly, try to enjoy yourself for the holidays as best as you can!! If anything, tell everyone you and your SO are staying at home and cooking for yourselves and avoid the stress altogether. Tell them if they want to see you, they can come to your house 🙂 (ok, I don’t know how well that would go over… but you could try 😉

Ugh. I’ve been in an awful mood all day today. Just super “let me crawl under this blanket and let me stay here for 3 months” type of mood. I can tell Darling Husband is worried about me and keeps telling me how much he loves me which is an awesome side effect and pretty much the only thing that’s made me smile today. It took a lot of effort to get dressed today. Is today the most depressing day of the year or is there something in the water?! I’m also topping this off with a dose of PMS 😉

Well, I spent the weekend at a funeral out of state. We were practically bankrupted in regards to the transportation to and from the funeral too AND I got sick. I spent the day on the couch yesterday sleeping between spurts of being woken up by the 22 year old SCREAMING girls who live in our building. And yes I’m at work now because I barely get any vacation days (which I have to use for sick days).
AND we just heard from two of DH’s relatives that they are coming to NYC starting tonight and staying until Friday. And need to stay with us. In our tiny one bedroom apartment…
Forget about today, I”m ready for this WEEK to be over!

Oof, well you guys have made me feel better! Looks like I’m not the only one with a case of the Mondays.
Seriously though, nothing is making me happier than sitting here on my couch with my dog curled up under my feet watching reruns of Charmed… Oh, and of course all my favorite Bees!
Although, I really could’ve used that chiropractic appointment that I forgot about after work today. FAIL! I’m only about 3 months overdue…

I admit it, I’ve been a royal B all day. I have some serious carpal tunnel thats been acting up so that makes me irritable & the fact that I’m on a computer all day certainly doesnt help. Fiance was in a pissy mood, so lunch (which I look forward to ALL morning) was crappy, we hardly even spoke to each other. I can tell I’m getting sick (my throats been killing me all day). I almost fell asleep on the highway driving home today and now FI’s playing Black Ops when we should be watching reruns of How I Met Your Mother…
Happy friggin Monday!

Bad case of the Mondays….I was super tired this morning and thought stepping on the scale was a good idea…oh no…I gained 7lbs in the past few weeks. 7LBS!! Then to top it off it was hard getting my pants on so I am doing lunges around the room to get them to fit. Argh. So now bridal bootcamp has begun….

I missed the bus, so I was late. My work was a mess today, I screwed way to many things up. I got home late, I have no food because we need to grocery shop.
FI’s schedule said he worked at 7:30 today. When he went to work, the main schedule said 1. And he works too far away to come home (would have been rush hour). I think he napped in the car. I don’t even know.
I feel like it’s a bad day for the universe or something.

I had a terrible day too!
First, a counselor at my high school totally betrayed my trust by telling a student that I had emailed her because he smelled! I was shocked. I did email her (and he does smell) but I needed someone to confidentially talk to him about it so that he can maybe make a friend some day. Not call me out, tell him he should talk to me about it, and admit that it would be awkward. How does anyone think that is ok?
Second, my 9th graders were totally bouncing off the wall and basically said that it didn’t matter what I tried, some of them just didn’t care about consequences. I am totally at my wits end!
