Ok, normally my life is boring and uneventful. I so wish I could say that about this past year, but include me in the 2009 sucked donkey toes
-In July I got fired - after my boss threatening it for about 6 months. Spent those 6 months looking for a job and sending out a million resumes but didn't get many bites. Also worked my butt off at work to try and improve my performance, but the truth is that telemarketing sales is NOT my forte. Shouldn't have ever taken the job. Lesson learned. Still looking for a job. At least I get unemployment - but it's only about 1/3 of what I was making before. I've only had 2 interviews since July - and I'm not sitting @ home eating bon bons and watching Jerry Springer - I'm sending resumes out like crazy.
-My body didn't have an af between March and Sept., which would normally be a good thing - unless you've been ttc for 8.5 years. Then not so much (this actually turned out to be a blessing I think).
-In Sept. my dh of 8.5 years was rushed to the hospital while at work (he's a paramedic) at 2am, but didn't bother to call me - because he'd decided he hated me and wanted something to be about him for once - because the last time he was in the ER it was for his heart - 2 years ago on my birthday and I was worried about him!! SELFISH.
-I didn't find out about the ER visit until the next night, when he FINALLY came home after spending 12+ hours w/ his former female partner - "fixing her car". (she's an emt). And that's when he kicked me out!! Was so shocked at all of the hate and lies coming out of his mouth, that I did leave and then went to stay w/ my sisters in CA for a few weeks. Knew we were having problems but didn't know things were THAT serious and didn't know that he wanted kids so badly either (big part of this whole thing - me not wanting to do IVF). I lost 21 pounds in that time - because I couldn't sleep or eat.
-During which time he took the opportunity to move an emotional affair w/ his former partner to a full blown no holds barred, we're in love and going to run away together affair. For her part, she was 26 y/o on hubby #3 (they were married in JULY!!), and my dh was the THIRD guy she'd cheated on her dh w/ in six months. But ok, plan your life w/ her, because she's going to have a baby with you. Serioulsy?
Furthermore they had this whole fantasy world planned where he just loved being mistaken for her 2 y/o dd's dad. He said 'divorce' to me more times than I can count and I did try to get a lawyer, but on unemployment, I didn't even get enough in a week to sit down with one.
-Then the lying took over. First he lied about WHO he had the affair with, lied that it was over, lied about using protection, and lied about supposedly wanting to work things out - and completely ruined a counseling session talking about how awful I was. I of course have NO WHERE to go, so I moved back into our house - in the spare room. And about 2 weeks later, after talking w/ the ex partner's hubby figured it all out - kicked dh out. He used it as an excuse to run away w/ his mistress for one night - cancel my credit cards, change his cell phone number and clean out the bank account. He came back home for the next 2 nights (no where else to go, I guess?). I had a dr's appt on day 2 to get tested for STD's - (turns out I only got an infection out of the whole deal - two rounds of antibiotics have taken care of it, but given me a hella yeast infection). When I got back from the Dr. I expected him to be gone, but she was dumping him over Facebook IM. Classy. And thanks for messing up our marriage for that crap. Right now we're supposedly working it out, but honestly idk if whenever I get a job and get back on my feet that's going to be the case. Depends on the day. Sometimes he seems like the man I was married to for 8.5 years and he's very remorseful and some days I want to strangle him with the phone cord.
-She then proceeded to drag out a pregancy 'scare' for THREE weeks. And had the gall to text me and ask that I not tell her dh that she dtd w/ mine. I told her where to go and then she had the further gall to act like I was overreacting. Seriously?
-In that time I couldn't concentrate on my grad classes - duh!! Should have just dropped them, but was withdrawn from several and now owe my school about 3k.
-My favorite dog died on 12/02/09 suddenly. He was only 6 y/o and he was my baby - I guess not having a job was a blessing here too - because otherwise I'd have left in the morning and found him dead when I got home - not knowing why. He had hemolytic anemia - if you share your life w/ a dog you need to read up on this disease, because most people don't know about it until after their fur kids are dead.
-Oh and 2 weeks ago I suddenly developed MRSA. idk how that happened, but it was the perfect end to a truly magnificent 2009.
Now, 2009 can sink into the muck and mire for all I care. If 2010 isn't better I'm quitting!!
