+1 to the earplugs. My husband is also a snoring monster. :)
About my friend with her kids.... I knew there would be trouble when she got pregnant. Her reason for doing so was to have someone who would love her. Now, they don't like her cooking, they don't like the same things she likes, and she frequently calls me and tells me how much she hates them. She wants these stepford kids who smile all day and parrot everything she does. I don't know why she can't just like them for who they are. Or why she can't be interested in the things they think are fun. She's so freaking needy. And she's always been that way. Instead of enjoying her time with them she picks over everything they won't do for her.
Its the same with her husband. She married him, knowing he wasn't romantic, knowing he didn't like doing the same things she likes doing, knowing he was a heavy beer drinker. I still get hysterical phone calls because he didn't get her anything for Valentines day, he doesn't want to go out dancing and he's drinking 10 beers a night. That's all been going on for 24 years and she's still surprised. Obviously I'm tired of her. It's been too long and I've listened to it too much. I just wanna smack her all the time now. I cannot endure another 24 years of this but I've pulled away as much as I can.
Let this be a lesson to all you girls. Do NOT think you can change a guy into something you want him to be. Make sure you like who he is and you can accept who he's not.
Gosh, rant over! Lol!
Ugh, you just described one of the many types of people I can't stand. If you want someone to love you don't have a child, get a puppy. Reminds me of that couple on Dr. Phil who adopted TWO teenage girls and then wanted to give them back because they started acting out, um, they are TEENAGE GIRLS it's what they do. You can't pick and choose your kids with how they act or what they like and if she doesn't realize that SOON she will lose them and you'll get that call that her kids never visit/write/call. </mini rant>
Real Rant: So much for avoiding getting sick. Woke up today with an earache and a sore throat, tried to take a nap but my ear was hurting too much Mom checked my temperature when she got home from work (thermometer is weird, I can't get it to work :\) and it was 99* (my temp runs low so that's a fever for me).
Computer Rant: I tried working online today hoping to get the $150 I need for payout just to turn out that I am $50 short and payout is on the 15th. So that means skipping my stupid school payment this month and hoping if I have a car payment that my mother could cover for me...again. I hate being unemployed IRL and working for $.02/question on ChaCha, and surveys take too long to get qualified for. It's exceptionally hard to work online when the site messes up, you answer one question and it logs you off.
TV Rant: On top of everything I'm going through today I find myself being sucked into "Teen Mom 2" after telling myself I wouldn't watch it because I can't stand the girl, Jenelle. I ended up yelling at the TV again (not good for a sore throat, I know) and wondering why a lot of women I know can't have children but she got pregnant no problem and (SPOILER ALERT!) is on the verge of losing custody to her kid to her own mother (who if you ask me is no better since on "16 & Pregnant" they both referred to the baby as "it" even after he was born and a few months old). </rants of all kind>
Am now going to bed...or try to anyway.
