The horrible, no good, very bad weekend.

I feel like I am going to jump out of my skin. Am filled with lots of anxiety and really need to dump it out all over this post before I go ballistic.

Issue #1 – started my period after being two weeks late. This is not a big deal, but it certainly hasn’t helped my mood either.

Issue #2 – Have been sick all weekend. Don’t know if it’s allergies or a cold, but whatever it is, it has been making me miserable. Coughing, scratchy throat, sneezing, stuffy head, stuffy nose – I’ve got it all. We’ve been running around all weekend long, so I really haven’t had a chance to just lay around and rest. Total suckage. Also I have no appetite, so instead of eating my anxieties away, I’ve been snapping at the family. It hasn’t been a good weekend.

Issue #3 – We have been watching our neighbor’s kitten since Friday and it has been VERY STRESSFUL. Her kitten and my kitten do NOT get along. They’ve been fighting all weekend long and it is really wearing on me. Also I have a feeling that her kitten has not had a trip to the vet yet – I think the kitten is only about 6 or 7 weeks old. I’m pretty sure the kitten has worms because his poo is runny and stinks to high heaven. It probably also has fleas and ear mites. I’m a little ticked that my neighbor would ask me to keep the kitten knowing this, but I’m also ticked at myself for not checking to make sure before I agreed to watch her. Thankfully the neighbor is coming home today, so the kitten will be gone in a few hours.

Issue #3 – my 13 year old son has spent the entire weekend at his friend’s house. I know this is just a preview of what’s to come in his teenage years, but I want my lil duckling home safe in his mama’s nest! My husband also got him a phone last Thursday, and we have had a small talk about texting, but we need to talk a lot more. Him having this phone is just one more thing to worry about.

Issue #4 – this sounds totally crazy, but I think watching the show “Hoarders” sets off my own anxiety. Watching all those people not dealing with their stuff really bothers me. Sometimes I really feel sorry for them and other times I think they are pathetic losers. There is a marathon on today and I watched a couple of episodes and that’s when all this really started coming to a head this morning. I wonder if seeing all their “stuff” not being dealt with makes me feel bad for not dealing with my “stuff” even though I’m not really sure what my “stuff” is.  I tell ya, the older I get the more insane I think I’m becoming!  And I just realized that I was watching a lot of Hoarders when this happened a few months ago.  Wonder if there’s a correlation???? Either I need to watch a lot of Hoarders so I can get all this out or I need to stop watching it altogether.

Okay so those are my issues du jour. I sure hope everyone else has had a better weekend than mine. At least I didn’t have to work today, so I’ve got that going for me, which is nice.

  1. Oh, my gosh, you poor thing! It’s good you vented. I’m sure it doesn’t help when I say things will get better. Being sick without rest and on your “ipad” just makes life harder to deal with.

    You don’t need a runny kitten right now. The phone issue would give me a lot of anxiety, too. I can see the benefit of being able to keep in touch with my kid, but then I think of all those stories about texting/sexting, lack of real person-to-person interaction, and the cost. (I’m not helping, am I?)

    I hope you get a chance to block the world out, read an uplifting book, and rest-rest-rest.

  2. Oh my goodness, Jillie! Will it help to tell you my pay-it-forward will be in the mail to you tomorrow!

    My advice? Stop watching Hoarders, start watching the dog whisperer (my favorite obsession) take the cat back to the neighbor’s NOW (it can live just fine for a few hours til they get home,) and take the phone away before its too late.

    Oh, isn’t it good to get useless advice from a single person who lives thousands of miles away?

    Take 2: I love you and will say a prayer for you. Be kind to yourself. Order some take out food, send Shawn to pick it up, and put your pajamas on for the rest of the day.
