Life Without Baby

Filling the silence in the motherhood discussion

Whiny Wednesday May 2, 2012

It’s Whiny Wednesday, your chance to vent if you need it.

Just for fun I thought we’d do the Three-Word Sentence Whine again. Remember that? It’s an exercise I borrowed and adapted from author Abigail Thomas and her wonderful book Thinking About Memoir (which, by the way, is a great resource if you’re considering writing down your story.)

The rules are that you can whine about anything you want, but it must be in sentences of three words. The idea is that it forces you to get to the point of what’s really on your mind, plus it’s good for the old grey cells.

Whine on, my friends!

    I am attorney. 20 years experience. Current job difficult. Politics are sickening. Get no respect. Can’t trust co-worker. Thrown under bus. Forced to defend. Given some acknowledgement. Co-worker skipped meeting. Thought in agreement. Fight begins anew. I hate people. Glad for husband. Grateful for love.
