The One in Which I Throw a Pity Party

I’m going to whine; I am going to throw myself a pity party. Feel free to read and then throw your own party in the comments, or skip ahead straight to the comments and whine away.

My husband has (undiagnosed because the doc won’t see him until tomorrow afternoon) influenza.

I have had a weather induced migraine since 4 am.

It is now 8:45 pm.

My husband has been in bed for roughly 27 hours.

Our son doesn’t understand why, if daddy is home, he cannot play with daddy.

It rained most of the day and turned cold again, so we had to stay inside, out of the bedrooms.

The dog keeps peeing in the nursery, anywhere but on her puppy pads.

I am not pregnant, and I have a bad case of baby fever.

I’m training for a half marathon and my hip hurts really bad.

My son’s favorite word is “no.”

My parents are both having medical procedures next week.

I have no doctor, and any place accepting new patients has a four week wait for an appointment.

I want to eat either an entire box of cookies or the five blueberry muffins left from breakfast. Or both.

The scale hasn’t budged in a week.

So maybe it doesn’t matter how much I eat.

My two year old’s average day is 6:30 am to 9:30 pm. 45 minutes to go. Hopefully 45 minutes is all. Then maybe I’ll get a few hours of peace.


But…tomorrow is a new day. And His mercies are new each morning.

  1. Oh sucky! Hang in there momma! Daddy is sick AND you have a migraine??!! What an AWFUL day! I hope you feel better tomorrow, and I hope you get some peace and sleep tonight! Thinking of you!
    BTW, I was also thinking of you last week when the storms went through. I tried to post on your blog, but for whatever reason it wouldn't accept my comments. Regardless, I am glad that you guys are okay. We live in Nebraska and are no stranger to severe storms and tornadoes and it's just SCARY! We at least have a basement though. Anyway, so I guess I was just saying then that I've been thinking of you A LOT this week. I will say some prayers for you guys. Keep your chin up momma!


  2. Ohhh! That all sounds worthy of a pity party! Sad state of affairs! I know how those days go!! 🙂

    Might I send some totally unasked for advice your way? If your son is not sleeping past 6:30 am (not a single one of my kids ever have), then I would certainly be putting him to bed long before 9:30 pm. All four of my kids are in bed every night by 7:30. They are allowed to read or listen to books on tape…but it is bedtime, BABY!! It is for my own sanity. Very necessary. And my husband is only home before that time 4 nights a week, however I do not let that stop me. If they stayed up past 9:00, I would crash moments after tucking them in and then there would be zero time to regroup for the next 13 hour day!


  3. Ugh, sorry for the not so good day. I had influenza a couple of weeks ago and it was very very horrible!

    My pity whine: It's my mom's birthday and I'm missing her so badly.
