1) I have to run to the mall to get a bridal shower gift tonight because shipping was too slow. Blah. 

2) My nails are on the brink. They look good if you’re not focusing on them, but if you look too closely, they could use a reapplication. I don’t want to before tomorrow. Too lazy.

I ordered the wrong size phone case for my fancy new phone and have to wait an extra day to receive the new one in the correct size.

I miss salt.. and soup. I have salty food sometimes, and soup, but only when I’m on a date night really cus I work from home and eat all my media with my 11m old baby, so everything is salt free and he’s just generally a disaster with soup

The world’s smallest violin is paying a sad tune for me right now

I’ve organised to go to my first ever pumpkin festival for my birthday and it’s forecast to rain tomorrow. Ugh.

I can’t find my beloved It Cosmetics Under Eye Illuminator that didn’t come in a shade.  It’s just this awesome brightening pink stuff.  I’m gutted. Especially since I’m kind of crazy about making sure I always put things back in their proper places.  Well, it’s it NOT THEEEEEEERRRRREEEEE.

So, I just order more from Sephora, right?  Hah.  They don’t make it anymore. I ordered what they wanted me to *believe* was just as good; an illuminating concealer that comes in SHADES, which is so not the same.  But, trooper that I am, I ordered Medium.

It arrived today.  It’s waaaayyyyyy to dark and looks horrid.  It’s nothing like my beloved illuminator.

NOW WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO?  JUST STOP GOING OUT IN PUBLIC?

I hope you’re happy, you IT people.

Oh yeah.  That, too.

You just reminded me.  I have to run to the bakery in the morning because I was too lazy to do it today and I need appropriate treats for a High Tea tomorrow.

I seriously think they really mean Afternoon Tea and just don’t know the history of High Tea.  

Americans trying to be continental.

My office provides catered lunch daily. I didn’t like today’s lunch. #WoeIsMe

desertgypsy :  I too am tired from an incredible Canadian trip!

I am also bummed that

  • My custom built house full of adorable dogs doesn’t come with a concierge. 
  • We can’t just live at the fancy hotel where we got married. 
  • The mineral springs in the hotel spa weren’t as appealing because they are remodeling and one had to traipse through the castle in a robe to get from the shower into the alternate spa entrance.

The. Humanity.

Mostly though, I am totally annoyed that Darling Husband has such a weird irritating relationship with his weird irritating family that I have had to implement some bizarre social media acrobatics to hide all the awesome stuff we did for our wedding instead of bragging like crazy to prove that they are all negative nellys and we do amazing stuff and they suck. 

FWP to the max, yo.

I’ve just been complaining to Darling Husband that I’ve put on weight because my new job provides a free amazing lunch everyday.

TwilightRarity :  Bo Burnham has a song called “Straight White Male" about all the woes of that life, and this verse…

 

The church has never made me
Feel ashamed of who I am

But I get e-mails from Zappos
That Gmail doesn’t mark as spam

My country’s Constitution
Was hand-written by my race

But my wife bought me the brand new iPhone
With an iPod Touch’s case—case doesn’t fit that phone

 

It’s quite hilarious, actually, but your post just totally made me spit Monster punch out my nose, imagining you and he complaining about the same thing.

Oh I have so many right now..

-I broke my nail RIGHT after I got them done so I have to live with one nail shorter than the other for awhile

-My skin is breaking out horribly for some unknown reason

-I recently had a cold sore and the scab just will not heal so I look even more hiddeous than I already did with my acne

-We moved states a few months ago, I took some time off to get us established here and get licensed for my field of work in this state but now I’m on the job hunt and it’s so overwhelming. I don’t know anyone or really where anything is in our area so I feel like I have no idea where to start

-D H and I both recently had some rountine dental work done and the bill was WAY higher than we anticipated due to some misunderstandings between us, the dental office, and the insurance company

-I’ve had some medical issues that I’m dealing with and I’ve been having a lot of anxiety about it (google is not my friend)

 

But I know I should grateful that we got to move to the state of our dreams, I’ve even had the financial option to take my time getting established here, and that we’re fortunate enough to have medical and dental insurance to help pay for everything

The pizza I ordered “well done” is like, too well done. 

My fiance said he’d eat it while I was being upset about it and now that I’m not upset there’s like 3 slices left.

I chose a 1.25 carat flawless ring at $11k, changed my mind by the end of the day and now I have to go back to find a bigger one because there’s more room in my budget. Trip to NYC is about two hours. 

so. freaking. dumb.

I need to lose 30-35 more lbs to reach my goal weight but I’ve been too lazy to make any progress lately.
