No complaint too petty to share. Step into the confessional and unburden yourselves!
My list for the day:
— yesterday it was beautiful out but I didn’t go outside at all. Today I want to go for a walk but it’s raining, and is supposed to rain for the next fifteen years straight, more or less. Glad I totally squandered that one lovely day.
— I’ve been working all morning and decided to give myself a break, but none of the threads on the WB front page at the moment are really grabbing me. So here I am, with nothing to do except spend some time on the Bee, but there’s nothing that I feel like commenting on.
— I’m overdue to write a post for my blog, but I’m so unmotivated for some reason. I have several good topics I could write about, but I can’t get past the first sentence on any of them. Harrumph.
But it’s important to remember all the good things going on in life too, so … last night DD slept really well!! She slept in her own bed silently until 3:45AM, and then cried a little but went back to sleep when I brought her into bed with me so we slept until the alarm went off at 5. Honestly I don’t think I’ve slept so much and so well since she was born.
So at least there’s that!
What are your gripes? And what are you thankful for?

My biggest gripe? It’s only Tuesday :-/
Let’s see, I’m not a parent, and yet I woke up at 5 AM to a sick kiddo, then took care of another one, and now I’m doing school work (at least sort of) until I go back to the second kid then straight back to sick kiddo. I am doing what it takes right now, but working 3 jobs and school isn’t easy. Still, I’m thankful I am employed and in school.

My gripe is: I want a baby darnit! It hit me hard this weekend and now today that is all I can think about!!!
It is rainy here today too 🙁 I like it when it rains on the weekdays though because I am stuck inside working anyway so it might as well rain! Hopefully it clears up by Saturday – we are building a deck 🙂 I am thankful for that!

iarebridezilla: My gripe is that I have two ten page papers due this week because my Professor does not want to have to grade on the weekends- but I’m going to get them done so I can enjoy my bridal shower Saturday! 🙂

This one’s pretty dumb – but I want old WB back. I’m like that girlfriend who wont let go of her man even though he’s not the same guy she used to date, just waiting for that man to come back. That man is WeddingBee.
I have to work with these women this week who truly bring me back to high school days. Cliquey and cold. They don’t really do anything in particular that is unkind, but they aren’t exactly nice either. I try to make conversation and be helpful, but they have their little group and everyone else is simply unimportant. They have nothing against using my equipment that I bought with money I worked my ass off to earn and invested in to get the best I could, while their equipment is cheap and not well cared for, but they seem pained to even be polite to me. Biatches.
I am thankful for more than I could type in one sitting, so at least I have that going for me.

lexmek27: I will likely finish about a week before my wedding-next year :/
I’m getting an MHS in Child Protection so one paper is about policy and the other is about family conflict. The family conflict will be easy, I’m writing about disagreements over money in marital relationships and their are tons of resources for that. The policy paper is the 15 page one though, and I’ll def be rambling and squeezing out every last bit of information I can

iarebridezilla: My gripe for the day is that I’ve had a horrible sinus headache all day and we didn’t get a freakin delay for the snow this morning.
And I want some damn carbs. I’m sick of trying to watch what I eat and lose weight for the wedding. GIMME SOME FREAKIN CHEESY BREAD!
And I want someone to finish my wedding planning.

I’m on a diet so ^^^ I have to admire these treats from afar 🙁

I wish it was Friday!!!

- Wedding: October 2013 - Dalhousie Castle
Mine is that I am dreading the next few months. I’m writing my thesis and just cannot wait to be done with it. Then I have to do my defense and 7 days later we are getting on a plane, with or dogs and making a permanent move to the UK. We have a house full of stuff and a car to sell plus all the packing to do.
My confession is that I am looking on weddingbee because I’m procrastinating.
I’m thankful that it will be over soon and then we finally get to have our long awaited honeymoon!

It is COLD as BALLS still. I’m fed up. This time last year it was like 20-something degrees (Celsius) and it was about -10 this morning. After a winter of -40, that may not seem so bad, but I live in Ottawa and its been cold for like 6 months so I’m done. Also, guess what today is? My RSVP deadline. GUESS WHAT I STILL DON’T HAVE? All my RSVPs! People have actually booked flights and not sent in their responses yet. Animals! I am, however, grateful that my boss finally adjusted my schedule so I work actual 8-hour shifts now and I get to go home before closing time today!

- Wedding: January 2013 - Harbourfront Grand Hall
iarebridezilla: -yesterday my boss yelled at me for not doing something she never asked me to do, apparently I should be a mind reader.
-First world problem: I love my fitness classes but they’re a 20 minute drive away which carves a chunk out of my day that I could use for house work.
-I need my birthday money to pay off a bill and haven’t gotten any cards yet LOL. Probably won’t with this counting chickens before they hatch attitude.
-Oh and I just ate lunch and now my pants feel tight, so annoying!
