Life sucks, and then it sucks some more

Warning: a whole lot of whining going on in this one, all whiners welcome

The top ten reasons why my life sucks right now, in no particular order...

1. Did I mention, I don't have a job for the summer? Oh, I guess I did.
2. Our Jack Russell Terrier has some sort of sinus (do they even have sinuses? I don't know) issue that makes her go through long snorts in reverse every hour on the hour while we are trying to sleep at night.
3. Nothing seems to be making her any better.
4. Our dogs make their own poop snacks while we are at work. Apparently they get hungry during the day. Unfortunately, they leave some for us when we come home. Thoughtful huh?
5. The refrigerator door doesn't close all the way anymore. As if we need to chill the house any more than it already is.
6. Pregnant 20 year old sister will be finding out the sex of her baby next week. AND, her mother in law is buying her and MIL's son a house soon. She is "like, soooo excited".
7. No job, excessive loans, and a bankruptcy in my history means there will be no house-buying in my near future.
8. I am enormous! I wear pants bigger than Husband's AND I weigh more than he does. At my OB visit a few weeks ago, I weighed in at 185 pounds (about 84 kilograms). I am HUGE.
9. I continue to suffer from foot in mouth disease and I am not pregnant, I wonder if the two are related.
10. And for the grand finale....I still have a urinary tract infection and now a hint of a low grade fever. Excellent! Gotta go pee into a cup so I can take some more pain meds.

Nothing tragic, just pathetic.

I hope things start looking up soon! Sorry about the pooping dogs, UTI, and annoying prego sister. Hugs Nicole!

Ol' Lady said...

poor baby :( I wish my magic wand wasn't broken...then I would wack you on the head and fix all of your problems...

BerryBird said...

I'm laughing about your thoughtful dogs saving some snacks for you. Dogs are so sweet and loving!

About #5, can you call the landlord and file a report? Maybe they will fix it or buy a new one. We had a fridge die at one apartment and the landlord grudgingly replaced it. I hope yours will do the same.

Aurelia said...

Well, berrybird had a practical suggestion! Seriously, we all still love you, and your feet aren't in your mouth.
And don't worry about no jobs and debt & bankruptcy, I know loads of people who bought houses after all that. It will all come out in the wash, even the dogsnacks. LOL
Go pee in a cup and here's hoping they do all the tests...a couple of times, I swear to God I had yeast THERE, no where else, so the antibiotics did me no good.
Drove me nuts...but the painkiller will work

Well, that is a lot of whine worthy material.


Decidedly Bookish said...

Ack, that's an unfortunate bunch of stuff. My sympathies.

BiPolarGirl said...

Sorry things aren't going well. Hang in there.There does come a point where things can get no worse and they do start to get better.

As for the UTI, are you drinking cranberry juice? I have chronic UTIs and cranberry juice does seem to help. I get organic 100% cranberry juice at Trader Joes.

I would tell you I am going to pray for you but as you know prayer and I do not mix. Instead I will be sending some chi your way :)

Teena said...

Things can always be worse.

Here's a minute for you :)

Renee said...

sounds like you need a stunt double for all of this sucking of life. don't'cha wish we could get one?
hope things are better soon for you.

Bumble said...

Whinga away, whinge away, you know I love a good whinge. I hope it all starts to sort itself out! If not, get yourself a nice glass of wine... You'll feel "like soooooo much better"... xxx

Sara said...

Hey, even our Evil Landlord replaced our fridge. Admittedly, it died completely in July and we lost everything in the freezer and they replaced it with a POS that was half the size and had broken racks inside the door... but they replaced it!

When I was pregnant with Primo I watched a Discovery channel show that freaked me out, about children born intersex and all the problems with assignment surgery, etc. Maybe you'll luck out and LIttle Sis will be birthing a hermaphrodite? And why are they buying a house? What part of "They are in the military and will be moved around a whole bunch!" don't they get?

And dont' be afraid to take up space! The world doesn't want women to take up space because it makes it easier to subjugate us. You, m'lady, will not be easily subjugated.

I am so sorry.Is it cold where you are? Can you go for a walk? Sometimes just being in the sun can REALLY cheer you up when blue :(.
