Life Without Baby

Filling the silence in the motherhood discussion

Whiny Wednesday November 14, 2012

Some weeks Whiny Wednesday is my favorite day of the week and some weeks I have not a care in the world to whine about.

This week I have a list…and it’s long…but I’m too darn tired, crabby, and hormonal to even get started.

But don’t let me get in the way of your whine this week. It is Whiny Wednesday after all, so knock yourself out.

    Thank god whiny wednesday is here. I feel real whiny today. Everything s***s. The organisation I work for has to little money next year, I am supposed to “find” it but i feel there is so little support from the steering committee and it’s so hard to find sponsors, especially since we have a coordinating role and don’t do “good works” directly but support the people who do that. But that’s hard to sell to a sponsor. It also means I “sell” projects to sponsors but I am not sure I will get the work force necessary to then do the work even if i get more money, the money will be spent on filling the holes in the budget and who is then going to do the work. Me doing overtime, but I am just sick of that. To be honest I don’t feel like working at all, it just s***s that we have to sell a big part of the life we have to employers. I feel that my life apart from work could be great if there was just more of it but the way it is it seems just pointless and I have no idea in which direction I am going. And nobody loves me. (yeah well 🙂 to the latter but it sometimes feels like that).

    Family drama created by one sister who has a lot of issues. I’ll leave it at that.

      Maria, it’s been four blissful months since I last talked to my sister who has issues. I miss her, but not the drama.

      • Leanne Says:

        i just saw my sister…who has issues. previous to that, it had been 5 months since we spoke. i hate the distance between us, but not the drama (same as maria). oh…just to know that there are others makes me feel more normal!

      • Maria Says:

        It makes me feel better to see there are others too. Thank you for your responses.

    It is our busiest time of year at work (year end) & I am completely lacking in motivation today. The fact that this was my due date, 14 years ago, might have something to do with it. :p

    Got a fraudulent email this morning requesting that I verify my password “immediately.” I followed all the steps from my provider, forwarded the original e-mail to them. Just now I got a reply saying that their e-mail address for reporting fraud is invalid. There’s 10 minutes of my life I won’t get back, and the issue isn’t resolved. It’s the “little” things like this that add up and threaten to make me nutso!

    Mine is work related. I have been dealing with customer service for two software products I use to do my job the last couple of days. Both of them I had to call to complain about a problem I was having with their product and after talking to their customer service people about it, all I get is “oh we are sorry” and no explanation on why the problem happened in the first place…UGH! I am about ready to scream!

    My whine is about rude coworker.
    Today a coworker (30 years, chidfree) asked me: “How come Klara that you don’t have any grey hair? I have plenty!”
    It was a nice question, I didn’t mind. I just joked that it ‘s because I am not old yet 🙂

    And then another coworker (30 years, 1 child) added: “I do have lots of grey hair… I got them after giving birth.”
    Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr…..Why must people remind me that I never gave birth? As I didn’t know that too well myself…

    I’m beginning to really look forward to Whiny Wednesday’s here. Even though I don’t often post I often whine and it’s nice not to be the only one. Thanks for the venue. Today I want to whine about the difficulty of taking care of ones self. Shouldn’t that be an easy task? I think it should! Instead I find it incredibly difficult and I find that point incredibly frustrating. My goal is to think of me, not get wrapped up in being selfish but be selfish and take care of myself because right now I can’t do anything else because I feel so fed up and need some time for me! Thank you for listening. I’m going to go whine on my own blog now and try to work through this mess. 🙂

    Too many new baby photos on Facebook today:(

    It is especially hard that hubby and I know a couple who already had three kids, who just had twins, a boy and a girl. It was hard when I heard about it, they were having all sorts of problems, job problems, legal problems etc, were really not in a good place to have more babies. It just really hit me hard. It was not an accident, she wanted another baby. I was just so angry and jealous when I first heard. And it was really hard today seeing the photos. Obviously I know life is not fair, but sometimes it just hurts like hell.
