fed up!  

Wednesday, 3 June 2009

Sorry for my short and slightly depressing post last night, it’s just been a couple of days of ‘one thing after another’

We thought Deion’s school hygiene room was sorted, but when I went to check on the work, the education department have it all so tied up in red tape, they don’t know if it will be done in time…another day on the phone and writing letters, just making sure they understand what their duty of care is.

We have builders in making a suitable place for us all to live and to give Deion his own self contained space….total nightmare, we just seems to be throwing money (we don’t have) at it and it seems like progress is going backwards.

I had a puncture, and had to wait for ever for the AA man and then pay roughly a weeks wages for a new tyre!

My tooth is killing me, I have to go and have oral surgery next Wednesday…I only care because it means I’ll probably have to miss salsa.

Money went missing from my account, and it took me a couple of hours and a few more grey hairs to get it straight.

The hospital have lost my test results, so I need to go back and redo them.

Deion has been getting tummy ache, so we went to see the bowel and bladder specialist yesterday afternoon, his bladder is hanging onto it, so he has to have tablets, if that doesn’t work he’ll need catheterising…I think he’ll hate this, but its another waiting game. And a full bladder study, poor little guy. I do feel like I am failing to protect him from ANYTHING these days.

My husband has probably worked about 60 out of the last 80 hours!

I’ve put on four pounds, and I don’t know how!!! I HAVE NOT been overeating, I guess it seems shallow to worry about it with everything else going on, but it pisses me off none the less…and I am in full self pitying mode now…

Right, I better had go, I am going to salsa tonight with Trojan Trojan's Corner and I am soooo looking forward to switching off for an hour or two…having said that I’ll probably get run over, struck by lightening or mugged the way my days have been going!!!

    Oh my goodness, it sounds like everything is falling apart for you. I truly hope they get the hygiene stuff fixed for D.

    I hope your salsa break gives you an uplift.

    Keep blogging, because we care.

    Blessings to you.

    Damn girl. You need a few strong drinks and a break!

    Get good drugs after your surgery and eat salsa anyway. :)

    I am so sorry about all of this. Fix a cocktail, sit back and take a break from it all this evening...if you can (I know that is always easier said than done).

    Sally, I'm sooo sorry. The schools always screw up everything. We moms are the advocates and protect our children.

    Have fun dancing and maybe work in a cocktail. Heck, drink an entire bottle of wine!!!!

    I know how you feel about 4 pounds. I lost a ton of weight 2 yrs ago and now that I haven't been able to excercise for 3 months, mine is creeping up and I'm depressed!

    Hang in there, we are all thinking about you.

    Someday it will get better, I don't know when, but some day, that's what I keep telling myself!

    Enjoy Salsa tonight

    Sal - If salsa can't fix it....a good cry...deep breath...and hugs from your hubs and kids will.

    You can do this. I know you can.

    Ok wait I am confused. Is "salsa" dancing or are you talking mexican dip?

    I do hope either way you enjoy yourself.

    And if you do meet a Mexican and dance with him, maybe you can be the Mexican dip? ok so its late here and I am delirious!

    you are all so lovely, i feel very supported, i certainly need life simplified. its the dancing kind of salsa i'll miss as its the day of surgery, but i'll miss the eating kind too :) a few drinks may help (there was certainly a patern in the advice here)and you never know, those 4 pounds may come off if i can't eat!!! every cloud....

    love you all xxxxxxxx

    Dearest Sal,
    Well, not just is it a pile of poo it seems to be a pretty HUGE pile at that!! I was going to ring you tonight to see how life was and your blog pretty well summed it up !!!Lost your results ,oh for goodness sake !!!!!! Think I am going to have a builders beware medal made for you too,being plaqued with their crass inefficiency at home and at D'S school too!
    One thing is for sure I bet you hammered that salsa floor tonight girl .Sorry to hear re D's bladder probs and your tooth too,I reckon you are allergic to jury service and it caused the tooth trouble.You probably spent a lot of time breathing in deeply ,trying not to commit homicide on letchy jurors and that caused the problem.
    I booked Wimbledon for a surprise for mum it was an offer in The Guardian for a night in a hotel and centre court with the mens finals or so I thought!!!! Until ,our mutual friend Michelle ,loads younger than me and in possession of a working brain(unlike mine!!) pointed out I had booked not on centre court but no 1 court and it wasn't the mens finals it was the veterans so probably Borg will come on and throw a zimmer frame around the court!!!!Bloody hell how stupid can I get??At least its the last day of Wimbledon so I think I will take my shopping trolley and take home any surplus strawberries !!
    Really,really hope all that poo disappears down a drain this week and shall be thinking of you all.
    Big hugs !!!
    Much love Wendy x and Bert (woof)
