Weekend W(h)ine

Here at Smartini, we know to be grateful for what we have. But, sometimes you just have to w(h)ine. It helps to vent, right? So let’s make a running list of complaints, Just Because. I’ll start:

  • I loathe that my sciatica has returned. Constant shooting pains from tailbone down through thigh, completely out of nowhere. Literally: a pain in the ass. It’s a hangover from pregnancy, but hello, not pregnant, haven’t been for over 2 years. It’s an unproductive pain, and completely unfair.
  • While I love my day job, I hate that most of the time when I step away to use the bathroom, 1-2 children begin wailing as though the world has come to an end. It’s! The! Bathroom! I’ll be back in just a freaking minute.
  • It kills me that my husband’s side work, which is inconsistent at best, but helpful, income-wise, sucks so much that he has to quit. That level of frustration is just not worth it. But still. Money. Ugh, I hate it. I hate the lack thereof, the constant scrambling. Such a nuisance.
  • I need a break. From work, mainly, but when I say work, I mean not just the paying stuff, but the actual 24/7 job of raising two children. I guess that’s not so much a possibility, is it. I’m just…tired.

Okay, there’s a solid list of unsolicited complaints. Now, add your own and let’s make this a party!

Boo. Sorry, Pen!

My sports teams keep losing, does that count?

Also I found out that my jury went from 10-2 in favor of acquittal (at beginning of deliberations) to Guilty verdict in 2 hours. How did I F that up?
