~ I'm So Grouchy!!
My poor husband. I really feel bad about how grouchy I am. Tom is constantly getting yelled at by me for doing the wrong thing. I can't wait for him to get home so he can help me with the girls but the minute he's home I'm complaining about something he's doing (or not doing). He can be helping clean up the dishes after dinner and I'm cranky that he's not spending time with the girls, but if he's playing with the girls, I'm angry that I'm stuck in the kitchen, again, cleaning up. Poor guy, he can't win. He's not happy he has to endure several more weeks of this (ya think I am?!) and just wants his 'wife' back. I'm not sure who she is or where she went, or even if she's coming back. I don't exactly know why I have no patience and I'm just as irrational as they come. I think the only cure for this and other ailments I'm suffering from is delivering this baby. It's not an excuse, it's just the facts. I can be feeling fine one moment and then the next I'm a bundle of raging hormones that needs to yell!
TOH, I've got to tell you about this weird dream I had the other night. I haven't been particularly interested in sex lately (poor Tom again!) and Tom is forever groping me. Yuck! One night, dreamland found me admiring Tom's new breasts. He got woman-sized breast implants. They were lovely, all perky and full and he was very proud of them. His rational was that if I wasn't going to share mine, he was going to go get his own. Odd, very odd. When I told him about the dream the next day, he had a strange reaction. He almost seemed to consider the idea for a minute. lol!
This summer, we didn't have a single cold. After preschool ended, we were healthy the entire summer. Of course preschool started back last week and guess what. Both girls are sick. Maddie's a little easier now, because you can tell her to rest and if she's feeling tired, she will. Ally still doesn't quite get it yet and has lots of meltdowns. She's such a daddy's girl right now that there's not much I can do right for her. Oh, we're in for a long winter, I'm afraid. I'm hoping that Ally's ear tubes will prevent us from having the horrible bouts with ear infection after ear infection with the slightest little sniffle. Last year was h-a-r-d. I feel a little panicky thinking about approaching another cold and flu season with a newborn in the house. I haven't told the girls yet, but I'm going to get them flu shots. They won't be happy about it, but it's really important that they're protected and that the baby is protected since he won't be old enough to have the vaccine yet. I'll get the shot as well. I can't imagine being pregnant with the flu. I had a horrid stomach bug when I was 6 months pregnant with Ally that landed me in L&D for a morning. Blech!
