Our Weekly Thread, ladies!
I am sorry I have been missing in action, unable to spread my Tressy Joy, but I just haven't been feeling like Tressy and my joy has left me at the moment. I have been suffering debilitating joint and muscle pain. I get my results back this Thursday to see if I have Lupus, rheumatoid arthritis or psoriatic arthritis. That will bring me some comfort knowing what is wrong with me. My husband has a beautiful daughter that I am trying to create a bond with, but no matter what I do, seems I get my feelings hurt. Yesterday I took her and my nieces to see Elmo. My sister paid for all the tickets. I got her a new outfit for the show, she wanted this 20 dollar toy at the show so I got it and took her to dinner. Once we returned home, she rolled her eyes at me and told me to get away from her. She said her mother doesn't want me touching her. I finally had a heart to heart talk with the mother last week about the things her daughter says to me and she said she is working on correcting it, but I don't really believe it and even if she is, the damage is done. She has that child so screwed up in the head regarding me. . .I am tired of the emotional roller coaster and angry that I can not have my own child. I know if I had my own child, this would not affect me the way it does. It is made worse when everyone is telling me to be the bigger person and that it is not her fault, it is the mother's. As true as this may be, I have been the bigger person, but I have feelings! This is my personal and private hell because it seems no one understands, including my DH. I pray I find some peace and solace dealing with all of this.
Hope all of you have a great week!
@Tressy: I'm so so sorry you are going through all this stress and that you're not feeling good. I hope that you get your results soon in order to know what's going on. And that then you will get the necessary care/medecine to feel better very soon! Regarding DHs daughter, this is a tough one and I would be the same. I totally understand that you are emotional about it, it's natural. I really hope that her mother gets through to her with this issue and that she will change her behavior regarding you. And always remember, you're doing everything right and I know you're the sweetest person <3! What is DH saying about her behavior? Sending you lots of thoughts and good vibes!
As for me, I'm doing good this week. Finally I told my boss and my best colleagues at work that I'm expecting, as we got the results of the bloodwork last week. My boss was very happy for me and I was relieved that I finally could tell him.
Apart from that, no news from my side.
Have a great week everyone!
@Tressy, I hope you get feeling better soon. I imagine it is very, very annoying. I truly hope things improve with your stepdaughter. I cannot imagine how that must make you feel, it isn't right at all. Hopefully, since speaking with the Mother she will start to improve. There is likely nothing you can do, but I do wish that somebody gets through to her and she starts to see how lucky she is to have you.
@Olivia, How exciting to finally be able to tell everyone! How far along are you now? I've forgotten.
We have a pretty breezy week planned. Today is our anniversary!! So excited. We aren't doing anything to really celebrate this evening. I'm making dinner at home, we have been on the go since last Thursday and I haven't cooked once! Friday, we are heading out of town to celebrate. Since a trip to Key West was out of the cards this year, we are heading to Columbus (2 hrs away approx.) to spend the night at the hotel we got engaged at. I'm excited!
And to add to the excitement, the doctor called yesterday and DH's vasectomy will be 3/27 and then we can officially begin TTC!
Hope everyone has a GREAT week!!!
Tressy, I can't even begin to imagine what you're going through with everything. Just be glad you have such a positive energy about yourself because anybody else would have caved in early. Hope the tests come back so you can get help with your pain-and I really really hope the step-daughter situation gets better. So so sorry!!!
Olivia, how exciting you get to tell people the news now!! That is awesome :)
Jess, ahh happy anniversary!!! Hope you have a great weekend!! And then onto the TTC journey for you guys!
DH will actually be out of town this weekend visiting a friend (my ex bf actually! lol) and they are going snowboarding up in Oregon somewhere. I am having a girls craft day on Saturday I'm so excited!!!
As far as DH's job, he was supposed to hear back about it by Friday of last week and no word. He called them to follow up (this was after his THIRD interview) for the last time and we still haven't heard from the guy. The only reason this is really weird is because the guy had been really good about replying to Trent so for him just to not call is weird, but I've given hope on that job and I want Trent to start applying elsewhere. It has only been a week since he has not worked but I don't like it already. lol. I don't get anything done in the morning before work because he is home and we either cuddle or watch tv -which is nice- but then nothing gets done whatsoever and I usually do my reading for class in the mornings, but I haven't done that this week and I feel like he better get a job soon!!! Then I don't get home until 7pm or later, and I don't want to do housework then. We usually eat dinner and hang out before going back to bed. ahh! This should go in the vent vault! We might have to have the talk soon about him doing things more around the house if I'm going to be the one working, kwim? Not that he doesn't help at all, but you get it. Ok I'm done now. :D
Edit* I got a text from DH that he heard through the grapevine that the guy who was supposed to call him back is out on vacation until tomorrow. That would have been nice to know beforehand!! I'm still unsure, but hopefully he calls DH back either way when he returns :)
@Tressy - I'm so very sorry that you have been having a difficult time these past few weeks. I am most definitely going to be keeping you in my prayers that everything gets worked out asap!!! If you ever need to vent, you can always get in touch with me. (((hugs)))
@Olivia - Yay for being able to tell your work about the new baby!! I hope your week went well!!!
@Jess - I hope that even though you had a busy week, you got a few minutes to rest and catch a breath. That's awesome news about hubby and being able to start TTC!!!
@Elise - I hope your crafts day was fun!!! I hope that Trent gets his call about the job on Monday. I can completely understand what you are saying about not being able to get much done before you leave for work. Eric's schedule has changed a few times and apparently, its going to be changing to 1:30 to 10 p.m. soon, so that means he will be home most of the morning and while I work at home, usually now I do all my errands in the morning after 9 a.m. so I am back at noon/1 p.m. to start my jobs.
As for me...things this week have been a little hectic - I'm still trying to get back on schedule from the weekend before last when Eric was out of town for 2 days and then this past week he had Monday off, so our "routine" was a little upended. I think that on Monday, I should have gotten most of the routine back on track, so I won't feel like I'm always trying to catch up. LOL.
Other than that, things are looking MUCH better for this year. We are so close to paying off Eric's car and then we will work on sending mine a little bit extra, and after June, we should be able to get back to doing some reno projects. : )
Becca, that is awesome you guys will pay off his car! What a great feeling!!!
And how exciting when you can start renovating again. Can't wait for pics!
