Anybody else feeling extremely irritable lately? I know I am. Everything/everyone seems to annoy me and it's getting hard not to go off on ppl. I'm normally pretty laid back, but the last few days I've really had to fight the urge to flip out on ppl. Yikes!
I am a qualified dog groomer, I've been neglecting my poor pooches so I set today aside to groom them.
I swear, if I done this for a living I would shut down during pregnancy I was so narky with the dogs, bless them.
Alfie kept pulling away and I was like AHHHH, and you can't leave him half cut My neglect resulted in some matts, I felt so bad (Even though he is my Mum's dog!) So Mum came over to calm him down, and she does this thing when she is concentrating, with her tongue, I can't describe it, and I could.. HEAR IT. I swear I wanted to take the scissors and lop her tongue off.
I practically live with earplugs in nowadays. I can't sit with my dear OH having something to eat without them in. Infact I can't eat with anyone.He makes a rackett when eating and I can't stand it. I cringe. I get this.. stare.. like.. "*** CAN'T YOU HEAR YOURSELF"
I've had only about 3 hours sleep, all broken. So I'm completely in a mini rage anyway...
BUT I CAN'T NAP BECAUSE ITS TOO LOUD OUTSIDE!!!! AHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!
Yeah me. I'm worn out and cranky. I haven't completely lost it yet but I'm been rather short with DH this week. Mostly covering my eyes with my hands and breathing deeply is enough to calm me into rationality and scares my DH enough for him to just do something about whatever is stressing me instead of saying/asking stupid stuff when I have much more important things to do.
One example(typical man here)was me getting ready for bed and I asked him why some clothes hangers that were arranged in a cascade down our bedroom door were there. Now I knew that the cascade was created by our ds who just loves to chain things together and build things. I'm not so stupid as to think my DH did just for giggles. But I also knew ds couldn't have started the chain at the top of the door so I knew DH started it. So DH says that ds did it. Well yeah, duh, but that doesn't explain the hangers at the top. What I asked was "Why are they there?" The implication here was that DH was 3 feet from the closet and hung them on the door instead of in the closet. But he has the maleness to reply "I didn't know where he got them from". That's when I covered my eyes. Seriously? Maybe, just maybe, hangers belong in a closet? Whoa, rocket science there.
Ok, I'm done ranting.
Most of the time I am okay, but I did get pissy with huby over the weekend. We bought stain LAST FALL to restain the play set, but we didn't get around to getting it done before the weather got too rainy/chilly. If I was pregnant, I would have stained it by now, but I've been trying to hint at hubby to get it done. I woke up Saturday with the urge to get it done, despite the 90*+temps, and straigten out some stuff in the garage. He did not want to do it, said it was too hot, etc. I not so nicely pointed out that the last 3 weekends we have been at the airport for various things and he went flying in the same heat and if I told him to go again he would, but yet I ask for 1 thing and it doesn't get done. It ended up getting done and it looks great.
That's really the only hing so far. Most of the time I'm still okay.
I have fought with my husband 3 days in a row! I was actually going to post this exact same thing. lol I really want to injure people. The dogs are annoying in the extreme. Everything isn't right. And I keep crying! Argh!
We had to be around my horrible horrible nasty in laws on Sunday because my husband INSISTED I go. Well, his nasty brother screams CONSTANTLY for fun! Just to make people and the dogs jump he like to shreek. This is a 30 year old man that acts like a 3 year old. The first shreek made me and the baby jump about a foot in the air. I yanked the crap outa my hubbies ear to get him to say SOMETHING! I then started crying. ugh.
Yes!!! I'm so glad it's not only me.
I feel like such a grouchy b**** lately!! We've also had a lot of money stress thrown on us all at once so that's not helping matters whatsoever. In fact that's the sorce of most of my tirades. But I just feel like a grouch lately and a bit down in the dumps too. Definetely not my usual self, I hate that.
My in-laws have been causing a good bit of friction between DH and I lately too. I'm just tired of being stressed out. DH called about yet another financial blow (this is the third one in the last week we've received, what fun!!) and we ended up getting in an argument over nothing. I thought he was being rude, he thought I was being rude. I finally just hung up on him and my phone is now sitting next to me turned off. I just can't take it anymore I feel so stressed out all of the time.
Today's been particularly bad because of my poor sleep last night (and I'm a HUGE sleeper, so that's never good and it'll be challenging when LO gets here). BUT... yes... I've been very grumpy with DD, and then I see her sweet little face look at me with tremendous confusion and a bit of hurt, and I realized I have to be the bigger person here! So I just did my self talk and am really working at moving myself to a better mental place.
not easy when I just want to sleep and say screw all this cleaning!

I'm been extra grouchy too. Mostly it's my 3 1/2 year old son who drives me crazy. He is in the stage where he asks questions 24/7 and they are all questions I cannot answer like "why did that blue car turn left?". Um it's not my car I have no idea stop asking me!
