Oh GC, that's just awful! I'm so sorry, mama. You will figure something out. I agree, what about unemployment? I was laid off after working for just 3 months at a small poly company. I say look into it. Can't hurt.
AFM - Can I vent/whine about something that I'm probably taking way too personally? I mean, that's really my MO this pg, just taking things personally and getting offended easily, but still. I can't shake this hurt feeling I have.
I was texting with my BFF this morning, like always. We go back and forth about what we are doing that day, etc. Well, we were in the MIDDLE of a conversation, like an active conversation, and I asked if she wanted to see my latest belly pic. (She's pg too. That might help you see why this hurt me.) She said of course, so I sent it. Waited for a reply. 20 min go by. An hour. TWO HOURS. Now I'm thinking something is wrong, so I send another text making sure she's ok and not in labor or something crazy. Another HOUR goes by. Mind you by this time, DD and I are out and about and walking thru Target. My phone jingles and her response??? "Sorry. Was in BRU and forgot to look at my phone. Cute pic. Sorry."
Forgot to look at your phone? We were in the MIDDLE OF A CONVERSATION. I just feel so slighted. And so mad.
I ooh and ahh over ALL her belly pics and pics of baby clothes and every tiny little thing she sends me and tells me. I feel like I give 110% and then she just oops -- forgets about me.
AND it makes me think she just doesn't give a rats ass about my belly pic, and I feel embarrassed and want to unsend it.
I feel very blown off.
I didn't reply back for awhile b/c I was just really upset about this whole thing. Finally I just wrote back, "Ha. Thanks." and left it. B/c I know I'm overreacting a bit, but I don't want her to think I'm completely fine, either.
Thanks for reading. I know it's trivial but my feelings are hurt.
