Why does everything seem to go wrong ALL AT ONCE??

Why does everything seem to go wrong ALL AT ONCE?? SunnyFlower: I feel like screaming SOOOO LOUD right now. It;s not that something really huge and bad happened...it's just a bunch of little things and sometimes they are harder to handle in my opinion. I won't go on and on...but, for example:

I work night shift to be able to care for my two year old son during the day. My son stays with his father (my stbx) on the nights that i work. Stbx calls me at work 45 minutes before my shift is over to tell me that my son didn't sleep all night because he is sick. Because of tyhis, our son also kept my stbx up all night as well....so, stbx decides to tell me that because he didn't sleep all night he is taking the day off from work. (He works day shift so that one of us is always available for our boy.) Meanwhile, I have been fighting off a sinus infection and a fever for the last week and STILL have been staying up all day to care for my boy and up all night to go to work...NO DAYS OFF. I said to my stbx "Yes, well...I haven't slept all night, either, and am sick, too..." and he says "What does that have to do with me??" I am sorry, people...maybe it's just me, but if the shoe were on the other foot I'd be more than happy to volunteer my time if I took the day off from work and let my son's other parent sleep for a couple of hours so that when it WAS finally his time to go with that parent, that parent would at least be a tiny bit rested. I can't believe how selfish and obtuse his statement was...it must be nice to know that you can just drop your kid off with his mom, call out of work and take the day off from being a parent as well as from work just because you know that your son's mom will always be there to be the responsible one...sick or not....tired or not...sleep or no sleep. I HATE that he always takes advantage of me like this, and i wouldn't be so upset, but this isn't the first time he's done something like this. I get no respect for being the good mom that i am. WELL, MAYBE I WANT A DAY OFF, TOO???!!! >:( Then to make matters worse, I went to the doctor this morning for a prescription only to find out this new prescription plan only offers a DISCOUNT on certain meds, and the anibiotic I was prescribed is NOT one of them......and my son is EXTRA cranky because he is sick and i am just so literally SICK AND TIRED OF ALL THE BULLSH*T little things that can really screw up your day....

Okay...I really do feel better now...WOW!! I must admit that i also feel a little selfish for wanting the day off, too. :) I am sure i am not the only mom out there who has felt this way?? (I HOPE??!!) :o
Re:Why does everything seem to go wrong ALL AT ONCE?? Safetykc: I am not a mom so I don't know how you feel, but I do understand that wanting to scream OUT LOUD because of the STBX's....It is always worse when you are physically feeling down..It make you emotionally down. I had the worst flu bug I had ever had in my life a month back and my STBX called at the wrong time. I was so down and wore out I ended up ranting at her pretty badly.

Anyway, It would be nice if your X was more considerate...but then would he be your STBX if he was? Sorry you are dealing with this.

Hang in there Sunny and I hope you feel better and your son too. Sorry your STBX is being such a Sleestak...

Here's your theme song Sunny....Feel better soon...

There's a dark & a troubled side of life
There's a bright, there's a sunny side, too
Tho' we meet with the darkness and strife
The sunny side we also may view

Keep on the sunny side, always on the sunny side,
Keep on the sunny side of life
It will help us ev'ry day, it will brighten all the way
If we'll keep on the sunny side of life

The storm and its fury broke today,
Crushing hopes that we cherish so dear;
Clouds and storms will, in time, pass away
The sun again will shine bright and clear.
Let us greet with the song of hope each day
Tho' the moment be cloudy or fair
Let us trust in our Saviour away
Who keepeth everyone in His care

Keep on the sunny side, always on the sunny side,
Keep on the sunny side of life
It will help us ev'ry day, it will brighten all the way
If we'll keep on the sunny side of life


Big Hugs!!!

Safety

If the shoe was on the other foot, I'd kick him in the ass. ;D Mean people suck, and inconsiderate people ain't much better.

Look at the bright side - every time something like this happens, it reminds you why you're better off without him in your life.
