Foul Mood (yah THINK?)

I am at that point where I want to reach into my belly button and rip out my uterus. Right now, I hate that thing. Oh sure, it served me well, carried 4 fine children to healthy full term and all, but now, it decides to cramp, to make these awful messes at the most inconvenient times. Well, I’ve had enough of it, thank you.

You know what? I never even HAD a cramp until after I turned 40. Now it seems to be making up for lost time. Pisses me off, I’ll tell you what.

And on top of that, 2 of the dogs have developed this compulsive LICKING that is driving me NUTS…just *slurp slurp slurp* all the time. GOOD GRIEF is there anything more IRRITATING (other than cramps, of course)?

And I’m HUNGRY…I want fried chicken and mashed potatoes and green beans with a knob of smoked pork, but will I get that? NO! I’m going to have YET ANOTHER flamin’ green salad for lunch ,because that’s what I have in the fridge. Supper tonight will be a fish thing, because that’s what I have. you know what? I HATE fish, unless it’s battered in a spicy coating and rolled in panko crumbs, then fried. But my doctor says my triglycerides are too high, so no fried food.

PLUS there’s like $350 a month of hospital bills to be paid, because of Terry’s broken arm and #4’s double gut bug (giardia PLUS salmonella) which means NO EATING OUT until it’s paid off sometime mid 2010.

Hey, you know another thing my doctor told me? My sodium is too low. I asked how I would know it was TOO too low, he said I’d have convulsions and maybe die. But, I replied, I am on an anticonvulsant medication. Well, he replied, then you’ll just die without the convulsions. Farkin’ great. Pass me the pretzels BECAUSE I CAN’T HAVE CHIPS BECAUSE MY TRIGLYC….well, you know.

There, perhaps it ‘s out of my system now, and I can be sparkly and cheerful again.

happy housewife

    Everything is less tolerable when you have cramps, especially licking dogs and hospital bills. I’m right there with you about the hospital bills. I set them up online to pay automatically. That way I don’t have to think about it as much.

    • rootietoot says:

      I spent some time today setting them up, but the woman at the hospital warned me that if I had automatic draft, sometimes the hospital messes up and drafts it twice, so I might want to do it another way. At least she warned me.

    Re: Hospital Bills: beg them to go on a payment plan. It’s mind-boggling that you have to pay that much for so long. Tell them you don’t have any money, and cry and gnash your teeth on the phone, and they may be able to 1) cut them down or 2) stretch them out into smaller payments.

    Gah, I’m with you on being nonplussed about why I’m suddenly getting cramps with them since I’ve been over 40. Weird thing is that the thing that seems to help is actually exercise, which is hard because it’s the last thing you feel like doing when you’ve got heavier flows than you ever did in your youth either. (Also Naprogesic – Naproxin – works better for me than whatever the other one is that the gyno prescribed. And I’m far less likely to be in a bad mood if I’m not hurting.) Stuff this peri-menopausal business.

    No, no, no! Garnished doesn’t mean fired! And puh-leeze. In order for them to Garnish the wages, they’d have to 1) sue you; 2) default you; 3) Get a judgment against you; 4) Record the Judgment; 5) Do post-Judgment discovery; 6) Get a Writ of Garnishment…

    And even the Writ of Garnishment isn’t a fireable offense…

    It’s not that easy, M’dear; nor is it quick or anything else : )

    Try to re-negotiate. : P

      Ok! It’s just that, when he was hired, as a salaried individual, he was told a garnishment would mean getting fired. As a non-union management, they can fire him because they don’t like his haircut. He has employees who get garnished all the time, but because they’re hourly, they can’t be fired for that. The whole legal thing is for…well..Not Me. All they have to do is threaten something and I go *poof*

      • SuperBee says:

        Fair enough. : ) I just don’t want you getting bullied around, thinking that the law is a self-executing creature — it’s not. Much to my joy, it’s a long, and arduous process to get even the easiest thing done.
