    Frustrating Friday - daily post may contain TRIGGERS

    Weather: Humid and expecting rain

    Sleep: So so. Was up at 4:30 to deal with S's work day. Napping after this.

    Mood: Depressed and aggravated

    Plans: Took S to work clear across town. Take MIL to her Dr appt...AGAIN. It's never ending with her. Return the printer I bought because it does not scan which it's taken me almost a month to figure out. Thank goodness for Walmart (don't hear that often) since they take back anything barcoded in their store. I spent 2 hours on the phone with Canon's Customer Service yesterday with someone who barely spoke English with me installing, deleting, reinstalling drivers. Couldn't seem to get them to comprehend it was NOT the driver or else it wouldn't print either. Idiots.

    That all reminds me..... Foamy the Squirrel. Does anyone else know about him? He's foul. Not politically correct. And he has a hilarious series of customer service rants. I'm part 1 part 2 part 3 part 4 part 5

    And for a more inappropriate view on weight loss and are bottoms:

    Morning all,

    Weather: chilly up to 70's partly sunny today

    Sleep: good

    Mood: irritable and anxious.

    Plans: phone calls to make and emails to be sent out as well. Searching for a 2nd job so I can build up my savings acct to offset the cost of the move once a job comes open up north. At the same time I will be looking for housing and get applications. I told dad about my plans and he's not happy about it. I told him I am not happy living here its too inaccessible. I feel like I lost that independence which frustrates me. I guess he'll have just accept it.

    uuuugggghhhh another day.

    Hello my dahlings

    Weather: uuugggghhhh

    Sleep: ok

    Mood: up-down-up-down

    Plans: First let me say that I look HORRIBLE!!! My hair has thinned out, I have a cold sore, I've gained weight and my face has broken out and thats all with in this last hour. This menopause thing SUCKS!!!! I'm too tired to do anything, I look too horrible to go any where and I cant fit into any of my clothes so I would have to go naked anyways.

    Do you guys know where I can buy size C clothes? C= cow
    I think this outfit would look good on me.

    Have a great day dahlings. muahs

    Afternoon. tgif

    weather: grey and rainy

    Sleep: so so

    Plans: not much of anything! Took youngest son to a concert last night and that was fun...almost didn't happen. Car is in the garage and will go pick that up at some point, costing us an arm and a leg.

    Melly, hope you got a nice nap in.

    Beej, you have to do what is best for you. I admire you for making your plans and doing what you know is right.

    Cookie, I am right there with you sweets. Weight gain, thin hair, etc. I am really trying with my weight. It is frustrating.

    Hope everyone has a good day!

    Weather - low 70's

    Sleep - pretty good last nigh for a change

    Mood - feeling better than this morning

    Plans - I've been extremely tired lately in the mornings (some days) yesterday and today being one of those times, so I lterally can't keep my eyes open. I think that I finally got enough sleep this morning part of afternoon that I'm waking up. My guess is this tiredness has to do with the low blood that I've had and that I'm seeing a specialist for. I was given poly iron and after I take it for about a month, my doctor will order the 3rd blood test to see if my blood is still low or if the iron has helped. If it's still low and the results of my capsule endoscopy doesn't show internal bleeding, then I will be seeing a hemotolgist to figure out what the problem is. In the meantime, anyone have any speed to keep me awake? lol Just kidding, of course.

    Plans for the rrest of the day is to go for a walk, go groceyr shopping, fill out a DVR form -I have an apt at DVR oct 10, so I can take my time with the form, but it's a long one, so I want to get started. Get some house cleaning done and later call my sister.

    Have a great day everyone!

    Good evening everyone;

    Weather: sunny and warm

    Sleep: I am sleeping too much, but I feel too tired to stay up and focus on anything else.

    Mood: Depressed and anxious

    Plans: Like I said, I slept too much today. I am trying to do homework right now, but I can't focus and I still feel tired. I managed to get clothes out of the basement. I am too depressed to care about doing anything.
