Ho, ho ho!

Are you having festive fun or are you in holiday H-E-double-hockey-sticks? Hopefully you’re tossing another log on the fire, spiking your eggnog, and settling in for a cozy holiday. If not, now’s your last chance of the year to get it all off your chest.

Happy Whiny Wednesday, one and all!

  1. No running water, no Christmas lights, no gifts, no family, no TV or music, no groceries, no oven, no car. My children – the dogs – are fine. I have a bed and a fridge from rentacenter and the $40 payment is due today. No money. Depressed at the thought of no “everything” and no bed tonight. I hope this isnt too much whine for you. You can help here

    Merry Freakin’ Christmas

    No whine today. It’s been a good day so far, filled with fun and merriment. It’s Occupy the Town I work in Day and Ugly Christmas Sweater Day! The Town I work for is loaded with the 1%, so one of the locals decided to have an OWS style protest here. Right now, there are more cops and members of the media than there are protesters. Kind of funny! And it’s Ugly Christmas Sweater Day at work. I think we have more participants in that than at the Occupy event! All in all, I’ve been rather amused all morning. No whines.

    Three small whines. I’m visiting my mother, and she is definitely losing her memory. Some of her memory loss is normal – it’s the kind of thing I do or my sisters do. But she does have definite short term memory loss. It’s worrying.
    Second whine. My sister is incapable of seeing things from my mother’s point of view, and sees slights where there are none, and doesn’t believe her memory loss. Empathy has always been lacking, and the two of them constantly misunderstand each other, and I’m stuck in the middle. Argh.
    Where is summer? It’s still not that warm, and so it just doesn’t feel like Christmas yet. But on the bright side, we’re off to have lunch today at a winery restaurant, and will explore the area of my childhood, our old farm, our beach etc. So that should be farm.

    Lisa, I want to wish you a wonderful holiday season and a fantastic New Year and 2012. I’ve loved being part of your community here this past year.

    I’m enjoying these days this year. No whine from me. I get to just be a wife…spend time being lazy…doing whatever I want. I’m learning to enjoy THIS life I’ve been given 🙂 Merry Christmas to all of you and may you all find the happiness and joy in this season as well!

    Thanks for letting me whine…..
    Have to do Christmas Eve and Morning with the in-laws….tons of happy couples and bouncing babies along with my bf who is 6 months pregnant and I just cant be happy for her. Feels like my marriage is falling apart. No one seems to understand how difficult this Christmas is for me since coming to the realization that we will never have a child.
    I am sad and frustrated but am hopeful that this too shall pass!
    Merry Christmas to everyone and thank you for letting me whine….

    While whining this time of year doesn’t seem right, I do have a few…the most annoyiing is still the family conflicts within my in law family. They just don’t see my Dh and I as a family. So any plans that are made are done without any input from us and we’re only told once they’re settled with the sibling that has step children. And if we can’t conform to their plans, we’re just left out. Already they have changed the family Christmas date 3 seperate times just to accomodate them – never for us. Ugh. Has been a hard year…being delibrately left out of “family trips”, in-law feuds throughout the year, my misscarriage and depression from that, and now Christmas feuds just to get the date perfect for everyone but us. Trying so hard NOT to let it steal my joy and knowing that Jesus is the Reason for the Season!!! God Bless us all.

    I just can’t believe the year is nearly over and next year i will turn 40. I’ve been on this earth for FOURTY years. What the heck have i done with them? What is to come?? It feels like I’ve been waiting to grow up for the last 40 years and now that I’m there, it means I’m old. I’m really panicking here.

    • just me Says:

      I said the exact same thing!! Nice to know I’m not the only one thinking that.

      Only, it didn’t hit me that hard until I turned 41. Then it was like “holy cow, I’m IN my 40’s now…”

    Ok, I know it’s not wednesday today but I need to whine…
    I got a new years sms from a “friend” with a picture of her kid and her kid “talking” to me (that I’ve only met once and she can’t even talk) and wishing me a happy new year (I’m sorry do I even know you?)
    And I’m thinking (silly me) that this year I want to be honest and I write back that she has changed (she claimes she hasn’t) and that perhaps she should be more carefull what she sent to childless people because it could be very hurtfull. I wished her and her family well and told her I am gratefull to have met her and that I’m here for her if she ever needs me. I also told her I don’t expect any support in my grief.
    She sent such a hurtfull message back, asking what’s wrong with me, calling me things, telling me to take some more pills and that if I can’t have kids it’s because I’m immature. She also sent me one more picture of her child and wrote “WE EXIST”. As if I’d told her to dissapear.
    My husband exists too but I didn’t send pictures of him to her when she was single and alone!!!
    She also said that of course she has changed. But SHE is the one claiming she hasn’ att the first place. I never expected anything! I only want to be left alone to grieve!!
    I’m so sick of moms BRAGING about their children, loosing their identity and DEMANDING that we woship them and their kids even though they don’t give a shit about anyone else.
    Happy new year…. 😦
