My condo was condemned a little over a week ago because they found “12 cracked trusses” in the attic, so I’ve been living at my SO’s parents house, and they expect it will be at least another 6 weeks before we’ll be able to move back in.  I got an email from them today, it looks like there are 50 broken trusses, and they have to replace all 75, so now not only are we out of a house for most likely 8 more weeks, we also have to get a storage unit and a moving truck and are required to move all of our belongings out of the condo.  Growl.

I’ve been sick for 7 days now! And it wouldn’t have been that bad if the hospital I went to on Thursday hadn’t misdiagnosed me. So then I had to make another trip yesterday! I am just now feeling semi-human. I had a fever of 102 or higher for 6 straight days no matter how much medicine I took. So glad the one dr decided I deserved antibiotics! BLAH!

Positive note, I haven’t smoked since I got sick, gonna try to stick to that.

I’m student teaching this semester (I graduate in May, yay!) and we have today off because of President’s Day. The education department decided to schedule a meeting today for us education majors fully knowing we have the day off. Argh! Why can’t we enjoy a full day off without worrying about any kind of school?!

People are work not doing their part. I hate when its a team effort and one person just does nothing, so everyone else has to work double hard! ugh

I had a bad morning!!!  No sleep, stressed about work, and I was flying home from San Francisco.  Everyone at the airport was so freaking rude today and I tried real hard to just be nice through it all, but when my “group” was called to board, the flight attendant gave my “group” a dirty look, rolled her eyes,  and yelled “COME ON!” like we were f*&%ing idiots for not just moving on up to board, despite the fact that she had yet to call our number.  I was so annoyed that I kind of thrust my boarding pass at her into her hand (it wasn’t very nice of me) and it pissed her off.  And then when I took it out of her hand, I apparently snatched it from her and was on my way when she yelled at me to stop because she was calling security.  So she made me wait, called security, and almost made me miss my plane.  But she eventually let me on because I went up to her and apologized for the third time, saying I understand that she has to deal with a lot of shitty people and that it was wrong of me to react that way.

I wasn’t violently thrusting my paperwork into her hands.  She was understandably pissed when I was rude back to her, but don’t pull that power trip bullshit and almost make me miss my flight home.  There were two flights boarding at the same time and the women handling boarding were just awful – I saw the other one screaming at an elderly woman who was trying to have some questions answered.  Ugh.  I hate flying.

I woke up with inches of ice on my car.  It took a lot of work scraping the ice off my car to get to work this morning 🙁  All this while Fiance just slept (he gets to work from home on Mondays and Wednesdays).  GRRR….

@PitBulLover: Our company sucks too! Why on earth should we have to work today when we depend on the outside world to keep us busy!? Every one else in our industry is closed. I have been going absolutely insane with NOTHING to do today!

And I’m pissed at the weather. Typical Chicago weather teasing the hell out of us with two GORGEOUS days and now we’re right back to freezing rain, light snow, and BITER COLD!

Today can rot >.<

@Wonderwoman217: Hear hear! On the anxiety, I have it too.

Our final payment for our Destination Wedding wedding is due this Friday and I have yet to get the bill from our wedding coordinator. I have called four times and emailed TEN times in the last 2 weeks with no response from this girl. I’ve emailed a million questions and need to have answers by last week in order to get this all done in time. She’s driving me bonkers because she’s in damn Mexico and it’s not like I can just go marching down to her office to complain. It’s a matter of not knowing if I owe anywhere between $4000-6000 still. So frustrating!

Maybe I’m letting this planning get the best of me, but this morning I sent her an irrate email. I pretty much asked if she had been in an effing car accident or something or if she just doesn’t give two shits about my wedding. I then threatened to call the resort manager and complain of her service if I didn’t hear back from her by 4:00 Tuesday. She probably gets the whole bridezilla thing 50 times a week, but at this point I’m about to strangle the damn girl. She can’t even get my name right when she calls (she calls me my middle name), so I’m done being patient. Ugh!!

Oh and I caught my cat taking a dump in our new house plant this morning….lol.

People in my office that don’t get here on time and don’t do work. I’m here doing my job at 8:00 a.m. because that is what time we are supposed to be here but noooo Mr. Lazy Ass gets here at 8:30-8:45 EVERY DAY then leaves at 4:30… I’m sure he’s lying on his timecard claiming he’s here at 8:00 but he’s not. I wish someone would catch him lying on his time. GRRRRR.

Also pissed about everyone whining on facebook, one cousin is a teacher and whining about how it’s crappy weather on her day off, um listen beyatch I’m a private sector employee who had to actually DRIVE to work today in this crap so don’t whine to me about how you have to sit home in pjs and do nothing because of the weather because believe me, I’d much rather be doing that than be at work.

1) President’s Day. Every place I need to go/call is closed. It’s just annoying that I keep forgetting and then I pick up the phone to call an office or business.

2) I had a dress alterations apt. scheduled for tomorrow. I don’t know why it just now registered that I will be doing clinicals at the hospital ALL DAY tomorrow. I forgot I can’t be in two places at once. It’s all good though, I called and rescheduled!

Other than that, everything is great! Happy Monday 🙂

My father, for the umpteenth time, just mentioned getting some more relatives and family friends to stand up and give a toast to the bride at the wedding. Like I told him the last million times he’s brought this up, I don’t want him asking tons of extra people to make speeches! Nobody wants to hear toast after toast after toast at someone else’s wedding. Heck, this is my wedding and I still don’t want to hear all these people’s ramblings. Half of the people he wants to ask haven’t even seen me for years!

Seriously, no matter how many times I ask him to drop it, the man is still convinced we need a dozen people toasting the bride. Is he afraid I’ll look unpopular, or that it will reflect poorly on him, if we don’t fill a certain quota of nice things being said about me at my wedding? Are people going to go home grumbling about how there should have been more toasts? Will the apocalypse come early if our guests’ glasses aren’t raised at least twenty times? FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, DAD, WILL YOU PLEASE EXPLAIN TO ME THIS TOAST OBSESSION OF YOURS?
