SPF: Worst Morning Ever.

Kristine wants us to utilize the things that annoy us and create them into SPF art. Well, let me tell ya sumthin. This morning has caused me to cry on two separate occasions, and it is only 11:00 a.m. I have only had 3 hours of sleep (yes, I had a soda yesterday with caffeine, I know, my own fault. But there could have been soemthing better on at 2 a.m. ya know? Help a sister out.) and upon waking up discovered my land phones do not work therefore I cannot dial into work and earn money today and make my livin'. I dropped the kids off only minutes before the bell, only to have to drive 40 minutes away to drop my van off for repair (it stopped working...yeah just like my iPOD. Only the van is still under warranty, which is the only thing I have going for me today....ahhh tangent) and have some JERK cut me off in traffic and almost cause me to wreck, while my cell phone battery goes dead and I realize I left my debit card at home AND I am almost out of gas, and then halfway home I then realize I left the GARAGE DOOR OPENER in my van at the mechanic and have no way of getting into my house.

*Deep breath*

So I call LP and I have to go downtown St. Louis to get his opener, and using a 'short cut' I get lost in Brooklyn (Jbo--remember East St. Louis is the ghetto? Yeah, Brooklyn is the ghetto's ghetto) and I completely lose it, only minutes later does the highway sign lead me back onto salvation and over the bridge. Ohmigosh.

I hadn't eaten BREAKFAST yet people. I am 7 months pregnant. AND i had to pee.

Needless to say, SPF isn't going to be imaginative today. It's going to be old pictures. But I WANT to play. I NEED to play. Having missed out on the last two weeks (which were awesome themes) I am GOING TO PLAY.

So here we go. I know you in no way needed those last paragraphs in your day, but it makes me feel a hell of a lot better to get it off my chest. My 7 month pregnant, large lactating chest. OK.

THINGS THAT ANNOY ME and will someone please give me the go ahead to have a beer even though I am pregnant? Please?:

1. No, it's not my kids. It's my in-laws. This was taken at their house, so I thought it was the least incriminating picture I had. It's funny too, because when we first got married, they were the 'nice' in-laws. I had NO inkling of the terror that would ensue in years to come. I believe they are the reason Xanax was invented in the first place.

2. My Space:

You have seen this picture before, it is my den. I LUV my den and it is here where I am forced to watch "Phil of the Future" and "That's So Raven". (okay, I admit it...I totally think Phil is cute) It is so cozy and as soon as I am done with this I am going to sack my preggo patoot right there.

3. Things that annoy me part 2:

I miss running 5ks. I miss lifting weights. I miss waking up at the butt crack of dawn to go running. I miss my stomach muscles. I miss feeling OK when I wake up. I miss sushi. I miss having a beer. A glass of wine. A shot of something. I miss seeing my feet. I miss my cute, non-swollen feet. I really miss sushi. I miss being able to brush my teeth without gagging. (I don't miss my period) I miss being able to sneeze without peeing in my pants. I miss bending down and picking up something I dropped without it being a major occasion. Okay I think that's enough for now. *Disclaimer for those who have never been pregnant: This is my third. The other two were not like this. Not even remotely. I was singing and painting rooms two days before delivery with the other two. This one not so much. But damn I miss sushi.

Umm, kay, hope I didn't just give my cloud to y'all. I'm not usually this negative. Been a long mornin! Have a great weekend everyone!

At the risk of leaving a double comment because blogger sucks today, I'm gonna attempt for a second time here.
I said:
I give you full permission to have a beer as long as you eat alot first, not on an empty stomach. Maybe have some cake when your done with that and drink lots of water. Oh boy, you'll really have to pee after then.
Good rant.

Great pix! And yes, Blogger did suck today!!

I played :)

My OB/GYN told me it was okay to have "a" glass of wine or "a" beer occasionally. I know it's controversial, but hey I have 4 healthy mean little kids. It will be over soon enough and you'll have a beautiful sweet angel in your arms and realise it was all worth it. I hope your day gets better.

Kick your feet up sip a beer and watch some TV.

I played!

...and just as you know has ended.

Aww! Poor girl! Mornings like that suck. Just so you know you're not the only one, I've left my garage door opener at the car place too. And we have these funky things that don't let me into the other doors unless you flip them off Before you leave the house. Of course, I didn't know I was going to leave the garage door opener at the mechanic's, now did I? And to make matters worse, they gave me a PT Cruiser to drive. Nuff said.

Hopefully this makes you feel better! :)

I played too :)

J Bo said...

Awww...I really feel your pain, I really do. Go and have that glass of wine, or beer, or... tequila! I wish I could say that it would be over soon enough, but my baby isn't budging being 6 days now past due. bleh. Pass the wine....

Thanks for the other day!! You are a hoot and a half!

Suzanne R said...

Wow, what a day you had! I'm glad you survived it but I feel for your pregnant self -- great entry! I also loved your SPF. My in-laws are gone now, my FIL was a dear man but my MIL was difficult.

I played.

This, my friend, is exactly what scares the bejeezus out of me about having a third.

Well, that and I'm currently hanging onto the last thread of sanity that I have already, a third kid in the mix would totally put me in the looney bin.

OldHorsetailSnake said...

Sorry, Jana, but you ain't gettin' no beer outta me. Nice try, tho.

Amy said...

Oy vey what a day! You gotta stash some granola bars in the glove compartment for emergencies, I think.

LOVE your in laws house pic. What a smooth way to get the point across without actually splashing a big ole pic of them on there with the word "Annoying" across the top.

Wow. 5K. just the fact that you miss doing them makes you a superhero in my book!
