Brags & B!tches - post here!!!

Where should I start?  OMG

B!tches - I think I'm jinx!  Had car problems (stalled at red light) that the mechanic couldn't duplicate, so nothing was done to "fix" my car.  Rental car got flat tire yesterday on my way to pick up xrays and meet DH and Jos at ortho.  Luckily the dealer brought me a new car to drive like a mad woman to the ortho appt just in time.  Jos broke her leg!  We go back tomorrow morning and hopefully will get a cast put on, so her leg is more protected.

Brag - besides the broken leg, and loss of sleep, we're all healthy.  Thank God!

Re: Brags & B!tches - post here!!!

  • mia, you crack me up. ?you truly are the sweetest nestie there is.
    [the bliz-og]
  • LOL!  Thanks Wan!  I'm just heavily medicated.  LMAO!
  • Mia is the sweetest Nestie there is!  Anyone who can come on here and make light of all of the craziness going on in her life is awesome in my book.

  • Mia is sweet, because she's full of red velvet cupcakes. Love Miss Mia!

    I don't know if this is a brag or b!tch...I'm thinking of going back to work FT, and putting Madi in daycare. We always said, in an ideal world I'd stay with her until she was 1, and that's less than 2 months away. I have the luxury of being picky, but I'm torn whether I want to go back and leave her in the hands of others, or whether to continue staying home. So I'm bragging that I've been fortunate to be a SAHM, and I'm b!tching about being indecisive.

  • I know, Mia, you are awesome.

    Brag - Jordyn turned 2 yesterday!


  • I second the motion that Mia is the sweetest of nesties.YesDrinks

    B!tch: I've been nursing sick baby all weekend & got confirmation yesterday that yes she does have an ear infection-probably from the week long cold she got while in daycare-ugh! I've been sick with this horrible cough that makes me sound like a bullhorn (heheheh maybe a b!tch horn) and now I am stuck in bed useless. My body has waved the white flag of defeat.   Wilted Flower

    Brag: Dh took hold of all my morning duties: got Rj to daycare, Celeste sleeping, both kids fed, and took the dayoff to be Mr. Mom. I heard some screaming or crying of two kids in the haze of my medicated sleep but all must be well because the house is now quiet.  Yes

    On a side note: I am afraid to see what the downstairs living area looks like. Indifferent 

  • Anyone who still sees the silver lining despite whatever craziness might be going on is awesome in my book :).

    B!tch - It's football season, which means I am as usual, a football widow.  Weekends and Monday nights, DH is basically out of comission...all he cares about is watching whatever football game is on.  That and his fantasy leagues...yep, that's right leagueS, he's in 3 I think.  I am running around like a chicken with my head cut off trying to take care of Ethan and doing chores around the house, while he sits there and watches hours and hours of football. 

    Brag - Despite the fact that he gets football obsessed in the fall, DH did manage to book a vacation for us this year!  We're going to Maui in November...woot!  I can not wait!!!  Anyone out there have tips for traveling with a toddler?

  • Mia you are the best!

    B!tch: Waiting for the state to send me my test results! ?No one wants to take days off so DH can't get any overtime which we need in order to pay our bills. ?No childcare for me to actually get an office job for the interim until I get my license. ?Well my mom but,... ?I really don't want to use her. That is a whole other can of worms.

    Brag: ?Jacob really loves school and life, I wish I could be more like him, he always wakes up in a great mood smiles and gives me the biggest hug in the world, that makes me feel like everything will always be OK! ?

  • B!tch--I am beyond burned out. DH and I really could use a vacation (it's been about a year since we got a weekend away with just us two), but we'd have to have extra $ to do that.

    Brag#1--At least we've been able to swing paying the bills while I'm starting my company.

    Brag#2--I get to come on here and read posts from one of the nicest, most awesomest people in the world--our very own Mia! 

  • B!tches:  none.. all is good.

    Brags:  Yesterday when I was reading Julian's fav book, he finished one of the sentences in the book before I was able to say it.  Our architect spoke with someone yesterday from the planning office and he said that our plans look fine and we should get a letter of approval in 4 to 5 weeks.

  • oh and ditto on the Mia is awesome declarations! lol.  

    B!tches: I have the early symptoms of a cold, but no cold. I'm exhausted and emotionally spent right now. DH's work load normally has peaks and valleys, and right now there are more valleys than peaks...we shall see. I'm trying to find a new job right now, and it is NOT easy.  

    Brags: Allison belly-laughed for the first time with me while we were playing last night and it brought tears to my eyes. She did it twice. At my doctor's appointment yesterday I was told my uterus looked great. thanks doc! lmbo.

  • okay, I have a b!tch...  I think I am getting sick.  Also, my body is just confusing the heck out of me.  I have had sore boobies for almost a week now, took a test and not pg... but now I think I am ovulating.  I wish my body would stop being so darn complicated.
  • Mia, you really are an inspiration.  I almost feel bad b!tching!

    B!tches:  We have 2 customers that are over 30 days late on their payments...one finally returned my many many messages today only to tell me that they are in finacial crisis and aren't sure when they'll be able to pay.  Another just flatly refuses to call back.  We're a small business, and we rely on every bit of cash flow to keep up.  I guess if it comes down to it, we'll just have to stop sending their cleaning crews untill they've paid.  Also, if they don't pay, we can forget about going to Vegas this weekend as planned, and our tickets and hotel room are already paid.  We won't get a refund if we don't go, and we have friends flying in from Germany meeting us there.  Our computer crashed Sunday and the place fixing it is trying to hose us.  My Mom's bday is today and I was going to meet her and my sister for lunch, but can't because we're waiting on getting those payments, and picking up the computer.  It just hasn't been a good week. Crying 
    Brag:  I finally got DH to clean the office!  I can actually walk in here now with out tripping on something.

  • I agree with everyone - Mia, you are awesome!

    B!tch: A certain co-worker has been dumping work on me.  It's not too bad, but it just got me into a p!ssy mood.

    Brag: This is the first time I'm saying on here...  I'm 11 weeks pregnant!  I haven't had any nausea or food aversions like I did when I was pregnant with Jake.  Other than being tired, I feel good.

  • Brag: My little Reese is turning 1 on Sunday!!!!

    B!tches: My kids are wearing me out. The little ones are going through phases and Michaela has turned into your typical pre-teen brat! The h is being a butthead and we got into a major fight yesterday about how he seems to think that I can do everything and forgets that I do work full time even if it is from home and on my terms and is constantly bugging me about things while I'm trying to work. I don't think he'd appreciate it if I showed up at his office and told him that the baby needed changed or that Rhian needed a drink yet that's exactly what he does to me on a daily basis!

    Oh and I screwed up a bill and forgot to set up the auto pay to our new bank account and accidently tried to pay it out of our closed account and got a nasty phone call yesterday from the company and they tacked on a late fee and a returned check fee that they won't reverse even though I've never ever been late before and then h got pissed at me about it! I'm tired of being in charge of everything!

  • Just because Mia is the best, I am going to buy her halo halo next time we lunch.

    B!tch: I have a really bad cold/cough/whatever and can't take anything for it.  I feel like crawling in the bed and not emerging for days.  Back in the hayday, I would have put a call in to my fav. PCP and gotten a script for a Z-pack. Maybe not the cure, but it definitely made me feel a whole lot better.

    Brag: Went to the OB yesterday.  They were afraid I could've been dehydrated b/c I hadn't been able to keep anything solids or liquids down since Friday night. Turns out I'm a-ok and actually gained 3 more pounds since last week. Yay Confused  Had another ultrasound and got to see our cupcake do a little dance.  Everything looks good.


  • That's right Mia is da bomb!

    B!tch: My DS won't sleep longer then 2 hours at a time and it's starting to take it's toll on me.

    Brag: Dh's new job is going great and we were able to pay off all of our cc debt.

  • I hope Jocelyn is well and will heal soon.

    B!tches: LIFE!

    Brag - None
