Sometimes It Just Helps To Bitch About It!

You know you are having a bad week in the Suburbs when:

You brag to your Doctor that headache wise, you are doing okay!  You don’t need any further medication or intervention.  Only to be brought to your knees the very next day by a migraine that was clearly intended to punish you for every evil act you have ever committed in your lifetime. Headaches suck.

You spend an hour in the Grocery Store with your SweetGirl grabbing everything you need for a successful and healthy week ahead.  One very full cart, and lengthy check out later, you discover you left your wallet at home on the kitchen counter???  Who does that?  This girl!  Not embarrassing at all. (written in sarcasm font)  FYI the grocery store will hold your giant ass cart full of groceries for you while you bust a mover back to your house and grab your over used debit card to pay for your purchases.  They don’t want to put away all your crap anymore then you do. 

You decide enough is enough and it is time to clean up your house!  Only to hurt your back lifting boxes you clearly should not have been lifting.  Hmm Perhaps that is why those boxes have ben sitting in said hallway for three weeks.  Too heavy for this Sassy Mama. 

You finally admit defeat and hire a pool guy to come and fix the dreaded pool.  One broken pump, and hot weather has left the thing a big old swampy mess that you just can’t seem to get control over.  What do you get in return?  A pool dude who works on the pool for about two hours, then just walks away?  Yep.  He threw his hands in the air too!  Left the backwash hose out on the lawn, the filters on the concrete and the vacuum right in the pool.  Pool Dude Fail.  No how am I going to get my tan swim on?

Just another fabulous week in the Suburbs.  Who’s got the wine?

      Let me tell you it was NOT funny at the time. I was tired, and just a wee bit embarassed. Now, it’s just one of those stories! LOL

  3. In my opinion, it ALWAYS helps (at least a little bit) to bitch about it. Then you can move on to better things. Hope it all gets better ASAP!

    • Stephanie says:

      Thanks Gigi, it”s better already! Thank goodness for summer vacation and to simply giving myself a break!

  4. I am going to tell you how I got rid of my headaches. You probably won’t want to do it because it is very drastic and you have to never go back.

    First I want to say, I used to get such bad headaches that I would curl in a ball and pray to die. I felt like throwing up,… light, noise… everything made them pound worse.

    Then I completely gave up sugar… well, anything with cane sugar. I now eat natural sweetners. I now only get a headache when I do a cleanse and toxins are dying off.

    So…. I told you it was drastic, but it worked for me and I will never go back to sugar. Not only because of the headaches but because of candida too.

    • Stephanie says:

      Are you kidding? I will always welcome stories from people who have conquered their evil headache monsters. Sugar has not proven to be a trigger for me (one of the few things that is not) but I will actually keep closer track of my diet for the next few weeks just to be sure. If giving up things with cane sugar would kick these headaches to the curb I would do it in a heartbeat!
      Thanks for taking the time to comment and share your story! xo

  5. I did that once with headaches……I think mine were related to hormones and thankfully they did finally go away. Sorry about your back….that is not good especially while your pool is broken and you can’t float and relax your back!

    Oh, I’m so glad I live 5 minutes from the grocery or I’d be in big trouble!

  6. I’ve got the wine over here! I live in the suburbs too, and life goes much like you describe. Except I don’t have a pool, even a broken one. 😉

    Seriously though, sorry you’re suffering from migraines. Not fun! Makes it hard to get the to-do list done, eh?

    Have a wonderful weekend!


  7. Oh no, that stuff all sucks… sorry!

  8. Mal di testa o emicrania? forse sei sensibile al glutine. fai alcuni accertamenti.
    In alternativa: Birra Ceres e questa song: Tom Waits – Walk Away
    buon weekend, Edo

  9. I can’t believe the pool guy just left?!? Who does that!

    • Stephanie says:

      LOL I know right!! We called the pool company for an explanation and were told “He was having some difficulty” Durr That’s why WE called for help! We neeed a professional because WE were having difficulty!

  10. I think you may need an inflatable pool.

  11. Headaches are the worst, I hope you feel better soon.

  12. I have had my share of headaches too…the dull, achy kind that won’t go away for a few days. Blech!

    I haven’t forgotten my money before, but I have forgotten my list and coupons. That’s just as bad for me! I’m a Dave Ramsey cash girl anyway, so I make sure I always have my ridiculously huge billfold.

    Hope you’re feeling better by now!

    • Stephanie says:

      Thanks hun!! Leaving those coupons behind does suck , so does having them in youw wallet and forgettng to use them!! LOL Done that!

  13. Victoria Ess says:

    Oh man, I can’t believe the pool guy did that! I hope you have gotten it fixed by now, so that you can enjoy your pool in this sweltering heat.

  14. Hate weeks like this but we all get them!
