SERIOUSLY! It's CREEPY so can you CUT IT OUT FOR JUST FIVE MINUTES?!!!

Oh that made me laugh so hard!!!

I am sick of carpal tunnel, my crappy cell phone, and all the dang housework. I want a stinking dishwasher!! I don't care how un-green it is. I Oh and I am really tired of my hands going numb and hurting. Did I mention that carpal tunnel is a real pain? I also wish an answer would come to me as to where I am to have this baby *sigh* Oh and last, but certainly not least...I hate carpal tunnel. Oh and I am forgetting the Reynaud's syndrome. Frozen nipples are so NOT fun!

My official complaint today is amberskyfire. What she's cranky about is what I'm wanting. You know I'm kidding...right? I am seriously jealous though of your super clear skin and active little one. I'll take a little bit of that off your hands if you need me to.

I want to know why Dunkin' Donuts makes their lattes "scald the skin off your tongue" hot?!

And why do I always get stuck behind the people buying cigarettes - always the obscure brand that the clerk can't find - and 30 lotto tickets?!

How many times can a 4 1/2-year-old tattle on her twin sister in an hour??

Hehe, I can understand that I was a total wreck before feeling baby move for the first time.

But seriously. You CAN'T focus while having "special time" with DH when your belly is jumping around like a bean! It's disturbing, like the threesome from hell.

It feels like we aren't "alone" when we're alone...

I do understand what you mean. I feel light movement but have an antierior placenta (I'm pretty sure) so the movements are muffled. But the first good thump I did feel was when I was in a compromising position to say the least. And what do you do?! "Wait!! Stop!!! The baby just kicked!"

I'm not really sure but I would bet a million bucks she can figure out things to tattle on for every single one of those nanoseconds! She's on a ROLL today!

My hubby just HATES it. We'll be right in the middle of something and I'll just burst out laughing uncontrollably (which I can tell you right now can ruin a mood!) or I'll yell "stop that!" and hubby will be like "what? What did I do?" and I'll have to say "no, not you! I'm talking to the baby." There. Mood ruined. :

I love this thread!

E, my little 3 year old, do you HAVE to lie on mommy to go to sleep? The baby does NOT like it and neither do I!

O colleague at work, why didn't you do your job today so that I wouldn't have to lose the work time I cleared for my project by staying up late all weekend reading to do it for you?

O students, do you all have to have crises and want to come see me? I am sick of it! Go have a crisis somewhere else! I don't have time!

O no, I just forgot, I have to fix your Halloween costume big D! I promised! No more internet for me!

Why is it that *I* have to call the new babysitter and set up a meeting with her when she will be coming over when *I* will be out of town? Why can't dh the sahd do it?

Omega 3's are so important to me and my growing baby. So, I take them. Every day. Faithfully. But seriously...the fish burps?! Ewww!!!!

Why can't Grey's Anatomy be 2 hours long instead of just 1?

Sweet baby: I love, love, LOVE it that you are moving around so much now, and I can feel you dancing. But would you please lay off on head-butting my cervix, just for a little while?

Hey, I get Omega-3 capsules from Trader Joes. If you have one near you, they make two kinds, and one is "odorless". My experience is that taking one before a good meal means no fishy burps. Taking one with a snack means slightly fishy burps. Eeeew.

My complaint of the day: Why does my endodonist have to have such huge hands. OWIE OWIE OWIE. My whole mouth hurts from my stupid root canal today. Childbirth is easier, I tell ya.

I want to whine because today I feel very defeated.

I had to drag myself out of bed early, on only 7.5 hours of sleep, not nearly enough for me. It was cold enough in the house that I finally broke down and turned the heat on. Shower went nicely enough. I needed to make some muffins quickly to take to a halloween brunch/playgroup. I added too much flour and they turned out less than stellar. And DS put up a huge fight with putting his costume on.

DH's car's alternator broke on the way to work. At least he got there without my help. He called a coworker to come give his car a jump and made it the rest of the way to work. His car is at his work parking lot tonight so he doesn't have to tow it. We're just barely finishing paying off credit card bills for car repairs we did a few months ago. Not happy that we need more. And his muffler needs a repair as well. Dumb car breaking at every turn. It's too old.

After the business at playgroup/brunch, I was too tired to do *anything* today. The house was such a wreck. The kitchen was a mess from a day's worth of dishes piling up instead of going into the dishwasher, and then there was the mess from muffing making on top of it. So I didn't want to cook anything.

And then I had to go pick up DH from work, so I couldn't snooze on the couch and lose track of time. At least I got to the post office to drop off some bills before their mail pick up time.

Got home and made slightly successful pumpkin pancakes for dinner. They were a little mushy and could use some tweaking, but at least they were edible.

Finally I got to doze off on the couch, boy did I need it. Only to have DH loudly groan and call my name, saying I really needed to get up and help, because DS had pooped, stuck his hand in his diaper, and smeared crap all over the walls. And the toilet in the master bathroom. And toothbrushes. And the elastic on our cloth diapers has worn out, so while we stuck him on the hard bathroom floor to do a quick cleanup of the carpet, he wiggled around a lot and some poop even managed to fall out of his diaper, out of his pants, and onto the floor. All right after I had just barely started snoozing on the couch.

Makes for one grumpy mama.

DD asked why I'm grumpy. I told her that sometimes, when you're growing a baby and feeling really tired and nothing goes right all day and then someone smears poop all over the wall, you get grumpy.

She says I should try harder.

My DH thought it was a great idea to go camping this past weekend. It rained and was freezing cold. Not to mention sleeping on the ground while pg is not fun. I didn't get any sleep due to being uncomfortable and cold Then some animal was dying in the forest and making a ton of noise in the process. Monday I woke up from my nice soft bed with a chest cold. Now I am miserable, and can't take anything to make me feel better.

I spent most of yesterday yelling at my kids from the couch. I had NO energy and just wanted to go back to bed.

Today I am feeling a bit better, but the no patience and no energy is really getting to me. I feel like all I am doing all day is yelling at my children, then I feel guilty for yelling at them and for putting so much stress on myself and the baby.

But I swear somebody is going to get hurt if they fight over a toy one more time. They have a whole room full of toys, just pick out another one!!!

My delightful 2.5 yr old shared her cold with me. It came with a killer sore throat.

All of the appealing looking herbal teas that have nice things on the box like 'throat soothing tea' or 'congestion ease tea' also say DO NOT USE IF PREGNANT. Boo Hiss to that!

I refuse to read the vicks vaposteam bottle. I'll cry if I'm not allowed to have that too!

My complaint of the day....

Why, oh why, ye devils of Nestle must you make Butterfingers so good? And why did my children get SO MANY of them yesterday? Hey, at least I didn't BUY them myself!! Right......?

This baby is going to gain 2 lbs. of it's own by the time this candy is gone. And at the rate I'm eating it, that won't be long at all!!!
