Small, Little Vent...

…what a week and its only Wednesday! I’m still exhausted from the work week last week (its where we close our building to the public and do nothing but cleaning and maintenance…tons of fun, I know, don’t be jealous!) and from my super crazy busy weekend. So Monday at work, I was busy catching up on desk work from the week before and it made the day go by fast. Monday nights, Matt has class and he called me during his break upset about his test grade. First off, let me just say this, Matt and I both have very different study habits and since he’s been back in school, this is one of the things that we get in arguments about. I feel like I’m nagging him reminding him to study and denying fun stuff for study time (I seriously feel like a mom) and he, of course, gets upset with me. So his test grade got both of us upset and when he got home, it just turned into a bad argument. It’s so hard because used to when it came to studying, it was just me pushing myself but now its Matt and I can’t do anything about studying or taking test, all I can do is encourage him and be positive. At the same time though, it is really putting a strain on our relationship but I really want him to finish-he’s only two classes away from his degree that he started 5+ years ago. I know he can do it and I know he’ll be very proud of himself when he gets it done. I keep telling him, just suck it up and finish because once you’re done with these classes then you never have to take it again. Wish us luck…

So after our Monday late night argument, I head to work and clean ALL day. Seriously, everyone at my work is VERY impressed by my clean desk. I tend to be a bit of a packrat and keep EVERYTHING! For instance, when I was cleaning yesterday, I found scrap pieces of foam that I wouldn’t throw away because we could use them again for a craft project. I just had to buckle down and get rid of the stuff I hadn’t used in forever. Now I just need to go through my house and do the same thing.

So I leave work on Tuesday and head home and find the kitchen door WIDE open!?! When the door is locked and you shut the door, sometimes it bounces open so I always double check that it shuts and locks. Well, Matt was in a hurry when he left and didn’t check so the door wasn’t like a little open but ENTIRELY open!!! To top it off, there was a package sitting beside the door so I know that someone was under our carport and saw the door open. Thank goodness the postman was an honest person! I walked in the house and into the living room where our TV, DVD, Wii, laptop hang out and luckily it was all there. We both had on our wedding rings and don’t have any other jewelry of value in the house. So after a quick walk through, I ran downstairs to let the dogs out (I figured if there was anyone in the house, the dogs would protect me). All ended up being good but still, it was pretty scary for those few minutes.

After all that, I sat down and opened the mail to see that our phone bill was messed up again, so I called Matt and told him we had to go to the store to straighten it out (I couldn’t go by myself because I’m not on the account…now I am). I was on the phone last month for 45 minutes arguing about the bill and we got this extra charge again. Every month, we’ve been charged $9.99, it’s my own fault for not looking into it-I figured it was for the extra line or voicemail, I finally called last month because there was a different charge for the upgrade on Matt’s phone and it turns out that the $9.99 was a third-party advertising. What it boils down to is that we basically were paying every month to have them advertise to us through text messages!?! I was livid!!! So after 45 minutes waiting in the Sprint store, a credit to our account and directions on how to stop it, I think it should finally be done! Whew!!!

Okay, I just had to vent to get that all out there and out of my mind so I can turn this week around. I’m really looking forward to this weekend because 1. Matt doesn’t have to work ALL weekend!!! WOOHOO!!! and 2. We’re going to the winery where we got married for a Grape Stomp. Happy Hump Day everyone!!!

This really has been a loooong week, and I'm sorry yours was crappy so far.

Here's to a fantastic weekend!

As my mother says, "if it's not one thing, it is three."

Hope your week works itself out!

I totally understand being the nagging mother to the husband that is in school. Sometimes you wonder why you agree to put this HUGE strain on your relationship and why you bother nagging him about school, but if you don't nag then 10 minutes before something is due (or at midnight when you REALLY want to sleep) he will end up asking you for help and you will help because that's what you do. Anyway, I get it, call me and vent ANYTIME! It is worth it in the end though, I promise!

Oh wow, a grape stomp! That sounds cool! Thank God no one stole anything from your house.

You guys are going to have a great time this weekend. And well deserved I might add. My hubby isn't in school, but there are times I feel like you. I have figured out that I can't do everything for him. He's going to have to fail on his own. It stinks because I don't want that to happen, but if he won't accept my help, those may be the consequences. I hope the rest of the week goes better for ya, girl!!

It will all work out. But I know babysitting husbands can get irritating! (I know!!)

We left our garage door open one day and were gone for at least 5 hours. Anyone could have just walked right in thru our kitchen door. Thank God nothing was gone!
