DH is frustrated because I'm trying to finish my last assignment for my last class (ever) in the living room. I can't go to the study, because he has overtaken every.single.square.inch with some random pile of paper. I can't use the kitchen table because I can't get to the kitchen table through the pile of stuff. I can't clean up the stuff because I have a sick baby attached to me 24/freaking7.<br><br>
The baby is frustrated because she's had a diaper rash for <b>TEN WEEKS</b>, an ear infection that doesn't seem to have gone away, a cough that is waking her up/making her gag/making her throat sore/making it hard to swallow/keeping her from finishing a nap. Plus, she's cutting a tooth and doesn't yet know how to close her mouth without bumping these strange, sharp surfaces and apparently teeth touching weirds her out.<br><br>
I'm frustrated because my DH clearly values his grad school education more than either my education or our marriage or our child or our family as a whole or my well being. (I never seem to feel this way when I'm not frustrated, so the previous statement may or may not actually be true.)<br><br>
I'm frustrated because my teething DD has an incredibly shallow latch and my nips are so tired of this crap that I've developed a callous over them. Go ahead, touch them. I can't feel anything through the callous. I can, however, feel EVERYTHING on the oh-so-sore, not-calloused SIDES of my nipples. Plus, my breasts are incredibly sore and I think my mammary glands are ready to mutiny.<br><br>
I'm frustrated because DH and I had planned to start trying for baby #2 over the summer and now he's chickening out. He wants to put this off indefinitely. I DO NOT want to be nursing for the next decade. I don't like it, I want to get it all done and out of the way ASAP.<br><br>
I'm frustrated because no matter how many times I go over the budget with him and explain how we're paying bills over the summer, he claims that we have no money and that he has no idea how we're going to pay rent next month.<br><br>
I'm frustrated because I have no family nearby, and my mommy friends all parent VERY differently than I do and I don't have anyone that can babysit without me worrying that DD is crying by herself in a basement somewhere. (take that statement with a grain of salt - I might be a little delusional from lack of . . . well, everything)<br><br>
I'm frustrated because I am so deliriously tired at night that I just pull DD into bed and nurse her all night instead of helping her learn to go back to sleep. Does she need to nurse 6 times? No. Is that helping my poor nipples? No.<br><br>
I'm frustrated because I'm going to have to see my #$&*@^$%# father on Father's Day and I don't wanna.<br><br>
I'm frustrated because my #(*$&#^@ cousins are giving my brother and his fiancee drama surrounding their wedding, when really my cousins are mad at me for having a baby after one of them lost a pregnancy last year.<br><br>
I'm frustrated because I'm going to Michigan TWICE this year, and won't be able to see my Colorado friends (who are AMAZING) until probably 2012.<br><br>
I'm frustrated because I want to go to the gym and workout but I have to finish homework.<br><br>
I'm frustrated because the only time I can get to the gym is 6am.<br><br>
I'm frustrated because if DD wakes up while I'm at the gym, DH acts pissy for DAYS.<br><br>
I'm frustrated. . .<br><br>
I think I'm done now. Maybe I just need a drink. Is 1 in the afternoon on the first day of finals week too soon to start drinking and homeworking?<br><br>
</end rant>
