Pity party, table for one

April 14, 2009

Feel free and welcome to ignore this post – I just needed to whine a bit (or whinge a bit, if you prefer).

  • My baby is dead
  • My thyroid is tired
  • My eyes are not only amazingly myopic but are also itchy from crying
  • I miss Teddy
  • My cat wouldn’t let me sleep past 5:40 this morning; she scratched at the bed until I got up
  • When I tried to go back to sleep she scratched on the bed again
  • I’ve been cutting back on coffee and today I can’t seem to wake up
  • I miss Teddy
  • My home is leaky
  • I’m killing myself to pay off my debts at a time when big banks are using bailout money for raises and bonuses
  • I don’t fit into my cute spring clothes
  • I miss Teddy
  • My workplace is tense because of impending budget cuts
  • N’s job is in danger because of impending budget cuts
  • I didn’t have time to take a shower this morning
  • I miss Teddy
  • I came home from work yesterday (my late shift) and realized I was expected to cook
  • We’re out of dish soap, so I have a sink full of dirty dishes at home
  • I miss Teddy
  • I tried to fax a request for Teddy’s medical records to the hospital in Portland and their fax number has been busy all day
  • I have to go back and try to fax the request again
  • I miss Teddy
  • I’m tired of all of the paperwork that comes with my dead baby.  If your baby dies, someone else should take care of that for you. For free.
  • Today, I just feel so lost in what’s become my life
  • I miss Teddy
  • I hate looking for new places to live and it’s likely we won’t find anything with a yard for my birdfeeders and rose bushes
  • I had to skip yoga today to set up for an employees’ luncheon
  • I miss Teddy
  • I had to clean up after the luncheon, too
  • I have more cleaning up to do in a couple of hours
  • I miss Teddy
  • Because of the employee’s luncheon, I’ve lost most of my workday
  • I miss Teddy
  • I’m still tired from my long day yesterday
  • I miss Teddy
  • I cried all over a coworker today and realized that this is now what I consider a healthy and welcome conversation
  • I miss Teddy
  • The weather is gray
  • I miss Teddy
