Horrible day!

post #1 of 5

To stop my run-on sentence I'll switch to bullet points :P


- reporting a coworker for a sexist statement (just the straw that broke me finally, we've all complained to boss for the past year he's been here - he's a subconsultant, not an employee - he has no clue what's inappropriate in the office at ALL. and boss does NOTHING. Told HR about it)

- crying in HR over mandatory overtime hours for next 6 weeks (and my fear that I can't meet the hours asked, especially as I don't know how bad my symptoms/morning sickness will be,  but I couldn't say that to them!!)

- starting to look for a new place to live as our place is too small and was making progress on that today

- find out my husband's job - which is a 2 hour commute each way - now is requiring overtime two nights a week, saturdays, and no more working from home for the next 5 weeks....  (which I said means he'd miss our first appointment and ultrasound. But he swears he won't.)


I'm a wreck. I already hate my job and was ready to find another when we got the positive test result, so I'm trying to hang in until maternity leave and then search. Have to put all efforts on apartment hunting and moving off by two months. My husband will be gone most of the time and tired/miserable when he is home, commuting a total of 4 hours a day for 6 days a week. No social life on weekends for the next few months. I've been crying way too much today.  This has all happened in the past 4 hours.


Today is fired. :(



(I know it could be so much worse, but right now I just hate it all. And need to get this out of my system so I don't keep stressing, because then I freak out that it's bad for the baby and it snowballs.)

Breath Mama breath.  You totally have a right to vent it sounds like a crappy day.

Oh wow, WHAT a day!! If I were you I'd be curled on the couch with a movie and a snack, not moving! Like Simonsez2u said, breathe!!! Touch your baby belly and breathe.


I certainly hope tomorrow is a brighter day for you!

thank you thank you!  Got home and had a good chat with husband, venting about both our works :P at least he really likes what he's doing. I'm still thinking if I jump ship now I'd have maternity leave at a new place... but... sometimes the devil you know is better than the one you don't. And I have hopes that summer onwards I can actually cut DOWN my hours (until the next emergency :P) if I want to.


Ordered pizza and just chilling tonight. The combo and timing of everything just made it worse, and my insomnia since I've had to quit caffeine and everything this week is nuts. Hoping I can get into a better sleep schedule soon as my body adjusts to this detox :P

Hugs to you! That sounds rough! I'm glad you were able to talk it over with your husband and are feeling better.
