Flameless Friday!

Re: Flameless Friday!

  • (I must be anxious for this...)

    Body:  Ok, glad I was losing weight, but what happened this week? Gain a pound? Ok, I wrote everything down-worked out a little bit... drank the water-WTF, Body of Mine?... ugh. There's always next week... although no scales at the beach... thank God!

    DH: I have nothing too significant here--you've been moody-let's hope that's over with cause you aren't a moody person. Now, I will tell you to be nice or else you'll be cooking your own food, Mister! 

    Oh, I did forget... Um, when we're scheduled to have the kids, why do you let BM plan stuff for them!  it's our wkend with them and yet we get them late today... typically, she takes one on a Saturday for something or other... and then... yeah. You do realize she's playing you?  She needs to plan these on HER time.

    Miss Scarlett: Come on out!!! We are sooo ready to see you! Why are you hiding?  Ok, it's probably nice and warm in there, but come on out! Lots of us are anxious to meet/see you!!!

    Contractors that I KNOW: You promised the quote TWO days ago. I have not, nor will call you.  If you do not call in a week then I will do the work, myself.  Sad thing is that I have other work for you... Idiots. You do realize the business I'm in?! whatever. (how hard is it to spackle, anyway?=))

  • Body- Would you prefer that I stop eating all food, huh?  It's been hard to work out with the hellish work-weeks lately, but I'm still eating really well.  What's the deal?????????

    Work- You really suck right now.  The scheduling is awful.  Thanks for everyone relying on me to do ALL the work this month.  I really appreciate it Angry

    Weather- Seriously, the humidity and heat need to go right now.  I can't take it anymore.  I'd like to be able to at least breathe when I walk from the front door to my car.  And, you're even affecting the gym...I still feel like I'm running outside in humid weather even when I'm indoors.  Go away.

     

    Baby Birthday Ticker Ticker
  • DH- I know you purposly "forgot" to turn and take me to work first cause you know I have to clock in and you don't. And that little comment you made..."Well you were the one being slow this morning so why should I have to be late.".... made that perfectly clear. You don't have to clock in GENIUS so there for if you are one min. late no one notices, and you don't loose your "on time bonus"....UGH!!!
  • Evil Scentsy Rep:  You DO realize you signed up with a cook who just happened to take your information for the county fair, right? And I went through all the right channels, and somehow it all got screwed up. Instead of saying "hey, there's been a mistake, how can we work this" you attack me and scream at me - I hope that today and tomorrow is sucky weather and you get no sales. 

    Fair patrons:  thanks to whoever decided to just steal stuff from my display on the one day I was allowed to have it up (see above). There were samples, there were catalogs, and there was clearly a display of actual product.  There was no "mistake" - you stole.  Karma is a b*tch and I hope you get bit in the @ss - oh, this goes for Scentsy B*tch too.

    New computer - WTF?  Why are you not installing Office or my printer drivers? I really, really, don't want to have to call HP support again.  Just do what the magic disks tell you to!

    Daughters:  I love you very, very much.  But you are not on vacation any more and it's time for real life to continue.  Stop with the whining and eye rolling every time you're asked to do a chore.  You know how it works, get with the program.

    DH: Realize that YOU are a big part of my stress and my "problem" lately. You moved me out into the middle of a frickin' cornfield and expect me to play farmwife, with no help from you.  I don't care how long you work in the fields, I am not going to pick up after you.  And I am sick of being the one to deal with your ex wife and the baby mama, oh, and yeah, I'm not a lawyer, I can type up documents but I'm not sure what needs to be in them.  They're your kids - you need to do some of the work.  You have things to do here, too, and if they don't start happening I will seriously go live in my parents' basement.  And you know how desperate I would have to be to do that.  So buck up, or kiss my @ss goodbye.

    Self:  Try to stay calm and deal with it - a major freak out in this small town would not be good.

    I'm sorry this is so long, ladies, I really needed it.

  • I used gift cards given to me and DH for our wedding to buy a gift for my friend's wedding...we registered at the same store.

    money is money right?

  • Self - I am so highly disappointed in you.  You were doing so well with the weight loss and now it's back to sh!t.  Granted you are still doing well with HOW MUCH you eat, but WHAT you are eating.  You've also quit drinking water during the day, you drink NOTHING, baaaad girl!  You also stopped exercising.  Swimming in the pool for 15 minutes doesn't count either so stop making excuses and GET THE FVCK WITH IT!  Then you question why you're fluctuating (sp?) up and down between 5 lbs.  WAKE THE FVCK UP!  GDI get back on track and get healthy. 

    Summer - Sure, now that you are more than half over you suddenly decide now you can act like summer, wtf is up with that?  You are my favorite season and this year, not so much.  I'm sick of the rain, so I thank you for making it disappear for a while now.  Also it's AFT for it to be warmer than 70 degrees up in this b!tch.  Now I understand that 70 is pretty warm, but to me that sure as fvck ain't summertime warmth.  So I thank you for the 85+ temps we've had the past week and looks to continue.  I DO NOT however, appreciate you kicking in this awesome weather until AFTER my vacation...FVCK YOU I say!

    IL's (all 4 of you) - Fvck you all too.  DH is right when he says the family has "lost their balls".  We are SO sick and tired of all the drama.  MIL, please, for the love of all that is holy, stop b!tching about SIL and her FI if you aren't going to do anything about it besides just b!tch to other people.  Didn't you learn when you were younger to say sh!t to peoples face and not behind their backs?  You also need to realize that their child is just that, THEIR'S, not yours (like you keep saying but b!tch about).  If they are too lazy to go out and get her necessities doesn't mean you ''have to".  You keep contradicting yourself, STOP.  She's their child and if they want to be the way they are it's their life, as long as her life is not in any harm it doesn't matter.  You need to realize everyone parents differently, stop trying to tell them how they need to be parents, frankly I wouldn't want them raising her the way you raised your kids because they are spoiled rotten (yes, I am referring to my husband!).  I could go on forever about you and this bullsh!t drama but I won't.  One last thing though is to SIL - I will say this till I'm blue in the face, the world does not revolve around YOU!  Seriously can't wait till we get our own house.

  • I actually have nothing right now!

    Check back later in case weather delays DH's flight from JFK to Norfolk and I have a hissy fit.

    I would do the same thing. . .

  • Neela: WTF is your problem? DH and I are right here! If you needed to go outside, stand by the goddamn door! signal that you need to go outside! DON'T freak out cause daddy closes the bathroom door on you (cause you're not allowed in there!) and pee all along the hallway!! WTF!!! You're 8 months old, you're supposed to have potty training down! I wanna kick your little ass right now!!

    I just wanted to say, that when we were potty training our dogs someone suggested to hang some bells from the door knob (at paw height) and show the dog how to ring them and how the door will open when you do. I bought some pretty ribbon that matched the house, and tied two medium sized jingle bells to it (two pieces of ribbon for maximum sound) and it works like a charm.  Oh, and it still took us close to 2 years to totally potty train our dogs, some dogs are just dumb.

    I have seen this work too!  You might try it.  The only thing that was suggested about it is to make sure it doesnt get rung to play just to potty. Daisy is not a good potty trainer either. Silly dogs!

  • Dear Car:

    After owning you for a month, I knew we had been sold a lemon, as we dropped $1300 to replace your engine. 

    Since then we have replaced the compressor on the air conditioner, messed with the neutral switch several times, replaced the starter and the rear O2 sensor, only to have the "service engine soon" light on reappear after b/c stupid auto parts store told us to replace the wrong sensor. 

    Now you won't start unless the battery is jumped---please please please only require a battery replacement and not another costly repair of replacing the alternator. 

    I hate you, and I hope you explode when I'm not in the car, and the insurance company smiles upon me. 

    That is all.

  • DH:  The floor on your side of the bed is not the laundry hamper.  If you want your clothes washed, put them in the dirty clothes pile.  I am not your maid! 

    Tweaker at Work:  Only one more shift that I have to deal with you.  I hope you realize when I come back from maternity leave you will NOT have a job!!!  We hired you as a temp . . . don't get too comfy!  :)  I will be so glad when I am not working with someone cracked out!

    Baby:  Please show up AFTER Tuesday of next week.  Your Nana has to work a bunch until then . . . lets keep that in mind and stop these annoying contractions that keep popping up.

  • Honestly so exhausted cannot even vent.  Oh, who am I kidding, I can always vent!   

    Mom, I already know that when I see in a week you are going to make comments about my weight.  Just don't.  You're wrong Hubs doesnt mind that I gained "so much weight" after the wedding, I am NOT FAT, and just to let you know living up to your impossible expecations most of my life is now why I am so heavy.  When my doctor found out how much I was eating compared to how much I exercise and for how many years I had been doing it, she about died, and told me if I had any hope of getting pregnant then I NEED to eat more than 1000 calories a day and I had to stop running so much.  So there.  OK, maybe I did gain too much, but when you starve yourself for years on end, you would be SHOCKED at how much weight you gain when you finally eat again. So please, if I have a churro at Disneyland, I don't need any sideways glances or snide comments about cellulite. Oh and not for nothing, but you were no super model at 34 either.  And while we're at it, I know that I am not getting any younger and need to get pregnant if I ever want to have babies.  I AM WORKING ON IT.

    Boss, please listen to me.  When I tell you something, I am not doing it to hear myself talk.  When I tell you that I cannot keep track of a bank account that you are writing checks on and using the debit card for when you don't tell me when you write said checks or use said card, don't come back to me two days later becasue the bank calls and says that we are SEVERLY overdrawn. Don't ask "how we can keep this from happening agian".  I already told, you.  Give me the check book and the debit card, when you need something, I will write a check for it.  I cannot be held accountable for something I have no control over. 

    House, STOP BREAKING DOWN!!!  You worthless 50 year old POS.  Last night the trash compactor (the only way I can get DH to recycle) broke, and as I was taking the recyclables to the container outside, I realize that the pool pump is running, but the cleaner is not moving.  WE JUST REPLACED THAT POS.  That is the third cleaner in as many years, I AM OVER IT!!!

     Sorry girls, I am at a breaking point.  I cried at work three times this week...Either I finally am pregnant and am having major hormonal issues, or, I am PMSing REALLY bad. Crying

    Thank you both! That's a great idea! She's not too bad, but when she does it, she pees all over the place. I will have to give this a try!

    I'm so sorry your stressed.

    I would let him know you are coming but only that, I wouldn't ask or exspect him to plan a get together. If he doesn't even acknowlage your trip, I wouldn't grace him with your presence. If he asks why you didn't come see him, just say well you never called, I didn't know you wanted me to. HTH

  • LOVE Flameless Fridays!

    Brother- You are my older and only sibling, and I love you but, could you PLEASE try and be a little more responsible- especially with your money?? I'm not trying to tell you how to live your life, but it does become my problem when you are paying our parent's mortgage and my mom is always worried that the check may bounce because you like to "impress" your friends by always footing the bill for dinners and drinks.

    Boss- I hope you are having a great time on your vacation, and as happy as I am to be off from that awful work environment, I'm NOT happy about only getting paid for 4 of the 10 days we are off. I don't think you realize that all FIVE (yes only 5) employees will be barely making it this month while you enjoy your "relaxing" vacation. U suck.

    Self- Just get to the gym.....like NOW. It was so depressing to go through all your old [cute] clothes that are now 2-3 sizes too small. I honestly couldn't believe that some of that used to fit me! I thought I was fat when I fit into that stuff, now I realize how fat I am now. Pitiful.

    DH- help me, help us. I need you help me clean up around here BEFORE you start the first of 5 baseball games on the x-box. thanks

  • H please stop telling me to not worry about the fact that you have a major drug dealer suing you because you two had an altercation when you went to arrest him.

      There are many things that I have come to accept in our life. I didn't bat an eye when we filled out your death notifications for the military,  when Tony was shot I didn't freak out.  I live my life by no news is good news.  So when I ask you to talk to me about this, because I know your dept has a good track record of throwing it's own officers under the bus, I serioulsy expect you to talk to me about it.

  • Well...I had no confession until about 20 minutes ago. An old co-worker just moved back to the state and stopped in to say hello to everyone. He has been gone for maybe 4 years. When he used to work here I had the HUGEST crush on him....

    Let me just say these past 4 years have done him GOOOOOOD! Holy hot tamale! He is sooo not my type, super athletic jock....but wow! If I was not a married lady I would be hitting on him right now! haha

    I am a bad wife!

  • Meh. ?I've got nothing. ?

  • Work: I.Hate.You.   With a passion.  With the fire of a thousand suns.  I hate the fact that there are 6 people in our other office and 1 of me and I'm expected to turn out the same amount of work, in addition to being the receptionist, part-time warehouse person and CS rep.  STRESS...maybe that is why my cycle is so messed up this month. 

     Sis- I love you to pieces, but why do you think that you deserve that d*ck?  You deserve wayyyyyyyy much better than him.  He's using you until his house is painted, decorated and done and then he will treat you like he did before you broke up last time.  Please ...see other people....and you'll see that T is not worth it!!

     House-  I really loved you when we moved in.  Not really feelin the love anymore. First the garbage disposal goes last Friday, then the dishwasher Sunday....now the a/c? Seriously??
