Wednesday Vents/Confessions

Re: Wednesday Vents/Confessions

  • Confession: I have no idea what I'm going to do with all this free time for the next two weeks. Obviously watching t.v, playing on my phone, playing on the internet is going to get boring. And I really need to watch my shopping online. Maybe I'll find time to read now.

    Confession#2: I was really scared last night, I keep telling the baby, you can't come on LEAP Day! I think she might of listened for the time being, let's hope. 

    Confession #3: I'm craving tons of sweets and coffee (which is not in my house!).

  • Vent: I was very excited and looking forward to having a 4 day weekend in April home with DD, until I looked to see that the 4 day weekend coincides with Easter. MIL & FIL want to make a trip out for Easter. There goes my relaxing 4 day weekend. Angry

  • I love my schedule right now.  It's been the same since August (which is unheard of!) and should stay this way for the foreseeable future.  I get time with DH, my sister and even some friends.  But I realllllly miss the paychecks I was earning before August.  I pick up OT as often as I can but I'm earning about $1000 less a month.  It's a Catch-22.  I could switch back to my old role and earn more but I like what I'm doing now and the hours.   

    FFC: I plan to watch lots of trashy tv tonight.  Three episodes of RHofOC and Degrassi (my guilty pleasure).

  • Very late-in-the-day confession:

    The more I think about it, the less excited I am about the trip I'm taking this weekend. I don't want to leave Mia. I don't want to spend money on food and sightseeing. But it goes against every instinct I have to turn down a free plane ticket and hotel stay, and it makes more sense than Ed coming home - between having to work all day Friday and the travel time, he'd get only a day and a half or so with us before he had to go back.

    I also feel guilty because me going up there means that he won't be coming home for the weekend - and thus, Mia won't be seeing him until this whole trip is over. Which is probably next Friday. 

    I'm totally gloomy. I'm sure this is the reason for my second thoughts about this trip.

  • I feel like I'm in a rut and I'm not sure how to get out of it.  I'm not motivated to clean and take care of things at home, but I know that I should.  I think I'm just frustrated with the lack of space and yard here so I don't want to put extra effort into it.

    Don't over-analyze it! Its a great opportunity for a little fun travel and you are going to have fun. And, Mia will be in good hands. I would jump at the chance to go.

    I agree and I would jump at the chance to go too. DH and I make up "free" days sometimes and talk about what we would do. We actually made one up this morning. We were going to breakfast, then to the book store, home for a nap...

    Since you have the actual opportunity, take full advantage of it!

    I'm just overwhelmed/annoyed/frustrated in general lately. Getting the new place was good, but now my stuff is in 3 places! I've been getting up early to load up my car, go to work, drive to the new house, unload and organize a bit, then drive an hour back to my parents house and do it all over again. H has been working, but the signs of depression are creeping back in and that is not a good sign! I know it's a legit problem, but it frustrates the hell out of me! I don't understand it!   Oh and the recurring theme of I hate my job! 

    I could almost write this. We're living at my Dad's house while we're working on our new house and I'm so sick of living in boxes and my Dad is annoying the crap out of me. I'm so sick of shelling out all this money and busting our butts working on the new house only to come back to mess and chaos at my Dad's house. I'm so sick of waiting for parts for the bathroom to come in and I just want to move! Yesterday I took off to wait for the carpet guys and it seemed like every project I tried to undertake was a huge PITA. I was there for over 10 hours and only got a few things done b/c of all the hassle. I'm also PMS'ing and just wanted to scream and cry.

  • mrsremy, SarahKate - I feel the same way - I just can't get it together in terms of my appearance. Oh well

    gracie - It's still that way with our house. Everytime I try to do something, it turns into a bigger project. Maybe some day it will get easier.

    LLHR &jennygoes - I hate when DH goes OOT, but mostly because I am on 24/7 baby duty. I miss him, but I don't miss cleaning up after him or his messes.

    Vent/Confession

    DH has activities that he goes to and I tend to track how many hours he gets to do his activities,particularly least the ones that occur outside of the home. (He spent 9 hours on Saturday driving to an event, 3 hours Sunday bottling beer and another 2 hours on Tuesday). I got 2 hours of time to myself.

    He says that I should go out more and meet people. The difference is I NEED my alone time IN MY HOUSE. I have sewing and house projects that I want to do.  I don't always want   "to go somewhere and do something with people".  I want him to take DD and go somewhere.

    Furthermore, he is always trying to get me to do things with his SCA friends. I like them well enough, but there is a HUGE age difference between us. (I am already 5 years older than DH). Frankly, I want to be able to hang out with people that can relate to me, not people who are younger, childless and complain because they don't get any sleep and get to sleep in on weekends. (Have a kid THEN you will REALLY find out what it is like to function on  sleep). Also, I would prefer he not get pissy when I tell him I'd like friends my own age and maybe even ones with kids!

    I feel like my life is in a rut. My job is ok, but I hate my commute and I feel like I am just putting in my time. I'm kind of burned out and really don't feel like looking for something else, where I would work the same hours and do more or less the same things, but for less pay. (My employee tends to pay a bit more than other orgs. ) I'd like to work part-time, so I would have a better work-life balance. I'm not cut out to be a SAHM, but I could do part-time. Problem is there really aren't any positions that pay enough for me to do that.
