I am writing this on Thursday night after several glasses of wine. I was going to skip my post again, but I am about to murder my entire family so instead of appearing on the front page of the paper tomorrow I decided I better write a post and get my therapy.
Today I woke up with a horrible sore throat, coughing and feeling like death. Yes, I hit the wall. I am exhausted beyond belief getting ready for the showings that happened on Wednesday but now I have the big Realtor Preview Friday (today).
My phone broke and once again after only 4 months I am off to the apple store for a replacement. No wonder I have debt issues!
A few months ago I scheduled our family portrait for today since my BF, Mara was going to be in town. I also scheduled to have my hair done much lighter several weeks ago prior to this house frenzy so I could look more like myself in our family picture. So now I have a family portrait, I look like crap because I am so tired, haven’t planned any of our clothes and I am about to hurt everyone in my sight.
I got so mad at Lou for absolutely no reason tonight that I declared ” I don’t love you any more!” He looked at me and said ” You still have to love me but maybe you just don’t like me right now.”
“NO, I don’t love you or like you!” He laughed and apologized for whatever it was he did. Gotta love a man like that!
I made Trinity cry because I told her she had to eat her salad and Tabitha told me I was the craziest person she knew. “I can go in and our of appearing normal, but it doesn’t come easy to me”, according to her.
So there you have it, I am rude, mean, tired, crazy, grumpy and almost certifiable.
The quote for the day happened at 7am today. Lou woke up and walked out to the family room to see me starring in disbelief at the mess. The housekeeper had just left the day before and the house was so clean you could have eaten off the floor. Never in 11 years had our house been as clean as it was on Wednesday, June 19 at 3:00p.m. This morning it looked like normal, hideous and messy!
I felt so defeated I just stood staring at the mess. He walked up to me and said “when you care so much, it really hurts that much worse.” I shook my head and that is how my Thursday started.
And now as you read this it is Friday and I am praying that we get an offer after the preview today because I can’t physically keep the house clean much longer nor can my family endure my mood that much longer. Happy wife happy life! No happy wife here!
