Monday Rant

So today wasn't a great day. At. All. Here's why today sucked ~

1. a coworker had a baby last week. All of our other coworkers have made a HUGE deal out of it, and have all called her like 100 times in the last week to congratulate her. However, when I had my kid last year, not one of them called me to congratulate me. It made me feel like a huge pile of poo basically

2. it's raining out (which I will say we NEED the rain), but it's really really cold. I went to Starbucks to get a White Chocolate Mocha with raspberry (one of my favorite drinks there even though I hate raspberry... makes sense I know). Anywho... as I'm getting ready to pay, the kid charges me $4.35 for the drink THEN charges me another $.55 for the raspberry meaning that my drink cost me almost $5.00. Now, I'm a frequent visitor of Startucks, and this is not my first time getting this drink. Never once have I been charged for the drink AND the raspberry flavoring. When I voiced this to the kid, he told me that usually the barista's don't charge for the extra "shot" because, "they're too lazy to punch in another $.55." How much sense does that make? And... I will never be going to the Starbucks in this town again... or at least not ordering that drink again. I was astonished that I paid nearly $5.00 for a COFFEE!!

3. I love my daughter dearly, I really do. But, this whole "I'm going to test Mommy to see how much I can get away with" thing is getting old. QUICK. I was trying to play with her and show her the Pooh Leap Frog that my in-laws got her. She decided that SHE wanted to rip the pages out of the book, and when I told her "no", she hit me then tried to bite me. Now, I know that she is only 1, but my word. I was so angry and frustrated with her, I didn't know what to do. I don't want to spank her, but she got like 3 spankings in the matter of 15 minutes. I've tried telling her "no hitting Mommy", and pushing her hand away, but it doesn't work. I get to the point that I'm at my wits end because I don't want her to think that I'm going to hit her all the time, but I don't know how else to convey to her that she's NOT allowed to hit and bite. Nothing else works because she's so stubborn and hard headed like her father. I try to do it a stern, but non-spanking way, and she continues to do it. I spank her, and she stops.

4. I have 8 weeks of school left, and I want to be done. Like done this second done. I'm just burnt out.

5. I'm sick of dealing with home ownership. We should have had the roofing situation taken care of. Nobody is willing to help us, and we need the whole roof done. It's not going to happen. Then, we put the insurance check in the savings account because we didn't want to have a $2,000 check sitting around the house (we thought it was a smart thing to do), but we receive a letter from the insurance company saying that since we deposited the check we now have 30 days to get a new roof, AND we have to provide them with the proof that we got the roof done.. On top of the roof, we need a new dishwasher because ours stopped working about a month ago. I'm too lazy to do dishes by hand (yes, I actually admit that I'm too lazy to do it), and it's getting on my nerves. It would be so nice to go back to renting, and have the landlord responsible for ALL of the problems that occur; and not have to ask my in-laws for more money because we have no savings account, and can't afford to fix our own house.

Ohhhhhhhh heaven help me. I need to go to bed and not wake up for a very VERY long time!

end. rant.
