Pissed off is way better than.....

It seems I am spending my life mildly (and not so mildly) irritated these days. This is so very not like me, but I am really getting pissed off and fed up with the pain in my neck. Unlike the rest of the pain I deal with every second of my day, this pain is really a pain. in. the. neck. Literally. This whole deal would be funny, if I had any sense of humor left in me, at all. (I lost it, and can't find it anywhere.)

Lately:

There is no life left in my coffee maker, and I have not done anything about it. I drop-kicked it accidentally a month or so ago, it has been glued back together but it leaks and irritates the bejesus out of me. The coffee no longer tastes all that great, although I suspect that is more to do with me than it. I have a nearly new percolator in the cupboard and should just use that. Yes, it takes awhile but it is almost indestrucible, although if anyone could kill it, it would be me.

The refrigerator that comes with this new place is ridiculously small. Seriously. I cannot find anything in it, it is literally jammed. It holds almost nothing, so I am in search of a used one to put in the garage. Surprisingly, those are not easy to find. I find one on CL, and by the time I contact the seller, it has already been sold. Who knew there would be a run on used fridges?

Work seems unusually difficult lately. Again, it's me, the job has not changed. I am just too pissy with my neck, and life in general to enjoy much of anything.

I am really looking forward to the second weekend in October. Our whole family (most of it..) is coming here for the weekend. Craig is flying home, oldest sister Trav will be here from Thursday to Sunday, younger sister Shell and family will be here on Saturday and Sunday, and Janelle and family and Jordy and Tegan will be here, too. I need this. I have no idea why, but seriously, I do.

I should get myself up and get to it. Another pissy day ahead of me. I want so much to feel differently---mentally I mean, although physically would clear up the mental, too.

Happy Hump Day, friends.   :)

I am a pain in the backside literally it's from having back surgery many years ago.
I enjoyed reading about the highs and lows of life, makes me feel I'm not the only one with problems.

Take care and DO have a good day,
Yvonne.

Love you Aunt Jamie! Are you enjoying the new place other than the coffee pot & fridge? Miss you guys bunches! I'm sure having everyone back will be great! It'll help! :) Big hugs!!!

I can tell you by reading other posts and my own feelings that you aren't the only one in a funk today!
I called my DIL and she came and got me out of the house for awhile (Still can't drive yet), I was grateful for that. Jamie, just use the other coffee maker. Why don't you throw the other one against something smashing it into bits? It may make you feel better.
Hope your pain subsides soon!
Love Di ♥

I'm sure you've heard the saying "it gets worse before it gets better". Hopefully, you've endured the worse and going forward it will only get better. That's my wish for you. As for the fridge, do you have a Home Depot or Lowe's nearby? I use to be an HR Manager at a Home Depot. They have appliances that are dinged up the the night crew on forklifts that they mark down considerably, if you're willing to look and ask for it. Something to consider, but it will take some driving and looking. They won't tell you about this stuff on the phone.

I am sorry you are in such pain. I know what it is to be in an unpleasant state of mind or in pain and I wouldnt wish either on anyone. I hope it gets better for you soon.

It's Friday and almost weekend. Somehow I know you got through the week and your attitude is better. I'm wishing you a peaceful few days. I'll wish you a pain-free weekend too. Why not?
