Prospective employers.  The majority of them are so rude and have no respect or concern for your personal time.  I hate when you interview for a job and they take their sweet old time calling you back.

My Mother-In-Law –

This is probably stupid… but she’s driving be bonkers. Every time I email her or talk to her trying to get an idea of what time she’s having people over for Christmas, she just tries to guilt me into agreeing to spend the majority of the day with her and her family, and give the sloppy seconds to my family. She ends each email with “the holidays are going to be extra special this year, you know…” It’s irritating. What makes them more special this year than any other of the 6 years Darling Husband and I have been together?

And sorry lady, but you can’t get everything you want. If I ask you “what time is dinner” please tell me what time dinner is and don’t go on about how you would prefer that we show up for Christmas morning AFTER I TOLD YOU that Darling Husband and I would like to do Christmas morning just the two of us to establish our own traditions. Darling Husband and I are a family now and are going to make our own traditions. You need to accept that.

Gah. That felt good.

As always, I’m annoyed by the woman at work. She’s horrible and of absolutely no help to me. Plus, I’ve officially started my two week wait to see if I’m preggers and I hate that wait.

I’m annoyed that its Monday. Seriously… I just hate Mondays… the weekend feels forever-far-away. I’m also annoyed that I spent 3 years and 100k on an education to get a job that, as it turns out, I don’t really like. But I guess those are both just general annoyances not now-specific ones. 

I’d say the new things that are annoying me today are: 

– My FI’s family not letting me bring my dog to Christmas, and then sending me an email to remind me he’s not welcome

– My FI’s job. They keep telling him he deserves a promotion and he’s “definitely” getting it, its just a matter of paperwork when it goes through. And yet… buehler? buehler? No word for weeks. ARGH.

The fact that I dread the holidays b/c my mom is ridiculously unreasonable about sharing us. She thinks that b/c she gives up Thanksgiving every year, that it gives her the right to have us on Christmas Day every year. My in laws deserve Christmas Day just as much as the next person, and we’ve done Christmas Day with my parents 3 years in a row. It’s time for them to get Christmas Day.

@2PeasinaPod: why does she give up thanksgiving every year?

@2PeasinaPod – Ugh, aren’t the holidays grand?

I think we’re being perfectly reasonable – MIL’s bday is on Thanksgiving this year, so we are starting our rotation with her house this year. She gets Thanksgiving dinner, and then we’ll stop by my parents’ house for dessert on our way home. But because she gets us all day on Thanksgiving, my parents get us for Christmas morning!

We will be at my parents’ house at 10:30am, then will go to MIL’s house at 1pm when she has Christmas dinner with her extended family (she’s pissed we’re not showing up early) and exchanges gifts, then head to my aunt’s house to do gifts and dessert with my mom’s side of the family (aunts/uncles/etc).

Then next year, my parents get us on Thanksgiving day for dinner, so she’ll get us Christmas morning… I think it’s MORE than fair, but she still is finding it to be “not enough” time with us, since “The holidays are going to be extra special this year…” BARF.

My Fiance and I will not be able to buy a house in MD. We can’t afford it. That being said, we are looking to move to a growing area like NC/SC because Fiance is a teacher and they seem to have teaching jobs constantly opening. That and the cost of living is so cheap. Every time I bring it up to my mother she begins whining that I’m leaving her and “Don’t you want your children to have grandparents?” First of all, we don’t have any children yet… second of all, you and dad moved all the way across the country from the rest of the family (both sides of their families live in the TX/CA/AZ part of the country) so don’t lecture ME about that, hypocrite. 

I WANT to move, I’ve been in one place too long. I crave change, and your whining is not going to change anything. 

ahhhhh, much better 🙂

Just spent half an hour looking at real estate listings in my hometown and couldn’t help but fantasize about moving home someday…but I don’t think Darling Husband will ever go for it.  *sigh*

 

@TheFutureMcBride – Good luck!!!

@CorgiTales: Uggghhhh, we’re in the same boat w/ my BF! He’s up for this promotion, and all the talk is good, thumbs up and all, but he was supposed to hear ‘by no later than Friday, for sure’ (their words) after a week of draggin their feet. And here it is Monday, and um??????  Even if he doesn’t get it, they still have to let him know, b/c that’s their company policy. Love the ‘Ferrris’ reference, btw, it made me laugh!

@AnamCara: Egh!  I am so with you.  I didn’t even I know I wanted to move home, but suddenly I think about it all the time.  The thing is, I LOVE where I live.  It’s just not home… And my husband is NEVER going to go for it.  :o(

I am annoyed at work.  Just with everything.  ANNOYED.

@CorgiTales: I was told I was receiving a raise in August/September? Still hasn’t gone through…

I am annoyed that I was woken up at 9am on my day off by a work phone call after staying up super late watching scary movies.

Also, I have ahad a headache every day since Thursday. Some days its worse than others, but I am sick of not feeling good!
