Rants and what not. I warn you, I'm crabby and have lost all control with my ability to censor myself...

This week has been less than pleasant so far. Could it be the rush of Christmas? The cold weather? All the stupid drivers on the road? Nerves? Who know, but I'm crabby dammit.

I have been beyond tired this week. Remember Monday when I called in sick from work? After a full night's rest on Sunday, I went back for more sleeping from 8 am - 3 pm. Five hours later, I was snoozing all over again. Rinse, wash and repeat. Seriously, the entire week has been like that so far. Why am I requiring so much more sleep? I think I'm wearing my mattress out. Let me tell you another thing, I'm not getting crap done at home. Laundry piles as far as I can see...


Let's see, what else to I feel like whining about.... Oh yeah...
Snow+ stupid people behind the wheel= driving disasters.
During a "white out" while driving after work, I was cut off not only once, but 3 times. I'm all okay with someone wanting to drive 20 miles over the speed limit on ice, but don't do it near me or other people who value their lives. I like my life and my new car, I'd like to keep both of them intact. Thank you, drive safely moron.

By the way, this reminds me, why do people get hummers if they are afraid of going over railroad tracks with it? Aren't those $80,000+ vehicles made for that? Wussy hummers.

You know another pet peeve I have with other drivers? Car owners who can't remember what kind of car they own, so they label it. Nothing like having Ford Mustang detailed across your windshield.

Grr..

and I'm jealous. Jealous for so many reasons. I know it's not healthy, but it bothers me. Unlike all the stay at home mom's in Jc's class , they don't have to beg their boss to let them off to watch their first grader perform in the Christmas play at 9 am. No other kids in his class are in the after school care program. That sucks. That sucks beyond words and what I can express here on my blog. It just sucks and I hate not being there for field trips, plays and having my child have a longer day away from home than most of his classmates. JC is at school at 6:30 and not home until 4:30, that's a long day for a child, let alone a child with ADHD.

See? I'm moody today...damn hormones. freakin-a. Hopefully my procedure on Friday will help with all of that. So there you go. Aren't you glad you stopped by to visit the over tired, crabby blogging, nervous,hormonal chick? Word to your Mutha.


Dreamland is coming. I will be back tomorrow with a better mental attitude. Promise. Pinky swear. Cross my heart.

One of the things i hate most about working, besides the working, is that I am missing out on huge chunks of the boy's lives. Rant all you want, I'll hold my lighter up and sway back and forth during our solo. not that you want to hear it, but you have a typo in your title. Censor. I don't drive a hummer or a mustang ....don't beat me please ;)

Ha- totally laughing about the Mustang thing. Amen. And something you might find funny- Noah came home from school one day wishing HE could go to the afterschool program with all his friends instead of coming home to me! And also, I am unable to go to a lot of the school things because of having more than one child. I do at least have the option of finding a sitter (if I had one!) rather than working, and I hate missing out on those things too.

Thanks bill. typo fixed.
I appreciate it.


Thanks steph, I was having parenting guilt late last night. It was one of *THOSE* nights.

I hear ya...I'm on the opposite end of the spectrum. I have all the time in the world to do school stuff but I got treated rudely when Oldest was in kindergarten and I have a phobia of the school building. Do you know the person who caused my school phobia had the nerve to call my house yesterday, asking for a relatives address? She forgets easier than I do.

The nuts on the road, that would take a million years of rant for me. I had my new truck a few days and some idiot truck driver was unloading stuff at the bank and would not move out of the way so I could get up the street to get my kid at school. I had to drive in the ditch to get to school...made me sooooooo mad, what a jerk!

I hear you on the working mom thing. It does suck, it sucks having to answer "why? why can't you go on the field trip with me?"...but it is our (or my) life and it is what I have to do. Even if it does suck.

I hope you are able to make the Christmas program.

Melissa said...

Hang in there!!! I hate the way people drive in the snow, too. We are getting 3 inches today and I do NOT look forward to getting out on the road...

Jill said...

I feel ya on the working mom thing - it truly sucks the chrome off a tailpipe. Being a mom is hard enough, but being pulled in two different directions by family and work is the suckiest. You have my sympathy.

My Road Rant: people who drive too slow in the passing lane. It's not the cruising lane people!! If you're not going to go faster than me, then GET THE HELL OVER!!
Thanks, I feel better now...

Okay, what's with the tired and the sick and the weird dreams...you're not are you?

my wonderful men... said...

I know what you mean about the working parent thing and missing out on stuff. Guilt train I pull is very long.

You can be crabby it's cold out and snow + driving = stupid people. It puts me in an evil mood. I just hope the nut driving 80mph passing everyone slides into the ditch and I can drive by and wave at him.

"Wussy hummers" - those exact words crossed my mind last Saturday during the ice/snow episode.

Big hugs, CE.

Lynette said...

OK - your sense of humor is really funny when your in a bad mood. I really enjoyed this post. It's good to vent and get it out.

Ann(ie) said...

Rant away, girlie. That's what we're here for. I've had several days like this in the last few months....especially the working mom part. =(
xo.

SJ said...

Hey! I've had an extra crap-tacular week this week too! Maybe it's the moon phase.....

It HAS to be.

KT said...

We are in different parts of the country, but what you're describing is going on down here in Virginia too! Everyone I've run into is dragging and feeling so blah.....it's the holidays and the Daylight Savings change at a weird time seems to have thrown us off.... I hope that makes you feel better, that you are not alone! Have an awesome and refreshing weekend!
P.S. Bad drivers in snow? You haven't seen them down here! They drive through snow like it was a beautiful sunny day! I grew up in the north so am an accomplished snow driver, haven't forgotten the maneuvers even though I've lived in VA for 15 years. I am truly afraid for my life when it snows here and I have to get behind the wheel! It's hard to learn snow-driving when it doesn't snow much, so I understand the problem, just don't like to be on the road with them! (Thanks for letting me complain about that there....I can't say it on my blog, too many southern friends I might offend! Hope I didn't offend anyone here on your blog.)

Autumn said...

Amen my sista! I try hard not to hate the women that drop their kids off at school in their little track suits on the way to the gym in the morning. And they have to get to the gym SO bad that they don't even walk their kids in to school.

I TRY not to hate them... but I'm afraid I do.

Autumn said...

Oh, and we also have a lady at the school that drives a Hummer with "HUMMER - Like nothing else" written in huge white letters across the back AND front windshields. And I think the front one may even have glitter.

She's very happy she won that in the the divorce.
