Sick and Tired

Musings of A Beautiful Mess
I'm sick...and tired. I'm on day 4 of this dreaded cold and I'd like it to be banished from my body and home. It's run through everyone in this house, but of course, it's gained enough strength to kill a horse before invading my body. After days (Weeks? Months?) of taking care of everyone, I've finally succumbed to it. It sucks and it's making me a VERY crabby person. So, in order to not become bitchy to my family, who are trying very hard to take care of me, I'm going to be bitchy on my blog. If I don't get this temper tantrum (that's about to over take me) out, it won't be pretty.

I'm sick of sharing EVERYTHING that's suppose to be "mine". I don't want to share my cell phone anymore. I don't want to share my couch anymore. I don't want to share my bathroom anymore. I want to go in there and take a shower, bath, or whatever when I want too. I'm sick of going through toilet paper at an alarming rate. There are other people that live in this house (for FREE), it is possible to notice we're out of toilet paper and go buy some when you're out and about doing whatever the hell you do. And while we're on the subject of free loading, you just got a $2,000 check. Wanna kick down a few bucks for living here in my house for the last six months.....for FREE?! Getting expensive shampoo, your hair cut and your daughters' hair cut and not even offering to give us even $50 is just plain rude. I know you haven't had much money and spending some money on yourself is within your right, but you have been living her for FREE for the past six months. Lets try thinking about someone else for a change.

I don't want to spend my birthday money on house stuff. It's MY birthday money, I want to spend it on stuff for myself. Selfish? Damn right it is! If I want to spend it on laundry soap, then I'll spend it on laundry soap. But if I want to spend it on a stupid tin with pink mints in it, don't give me THAT look. You're just going to piss me off.

This computer? The one that is MINE? The very one that you bitch about because the screen is "annoying" and my chair is uncomfortable? Yeah that one. If you don't like it, stop using it! If you don't like it, then why even bother using it? Wouldn't it be a nice change if you asked to use something and DIDN'T bitch about it? I'm doing you a God damn favor by ALLOWING you to use it, act accordingly.

I'm sure being sick and feeling like I got hit by a train is what is causing me to be such a bitch about every little thing, but right now, I could care less. All I want to do is lay on the couch (move over) or my bed and either sleep or be miserable. Don't talk to me, unless it's asking me how I'm feeling. Anything else you ask, I don't have an answer for. If I do have an answer, you probably don't want to hear it.

****end rant***
Special thanks to Julies for letting me whine to her via email. Sorry I haven't been the best sounding board or email friend lately. As soon as I feel less like crap, I'll be back to my chipper self!

Wow, you have every right to complain! You are putting up with an awful lot, and I'm so sorry you're sick on top of it all! I really hope you're feeling better soon, and that your freeloading house guests get a clue (although in my experience those kinds of people NEVER get a clue). Get some rest and take care of yourself!

Damn girl, you are going through it in so many ways! Freeloaders suck and I have been there. I vowed to NEVER let anyone stay with us ever again. Just is not worth all the BS. I truly hope you get over your sickness. Good thing we all have the blog world to get all the bitching out :)

Oh, sick and hosting a freeloader. That SUCKS! Glad you gave yourself a chance to rant. Feel better soon!!!!

You definitely have every right to complain. So sorry you're sick. I'm just now starting to feel close to normal after I got hit with the sinus infection 10 days ago. It took me getting all the way through the antibiotics to feel halfway normal. All of that to say that you have my utmost sympathy for feeling sick and crabby.

Aww! I hope you feel better soon and I hope your freeloader leaves asap! You totally deserve to rant.

Feel better darlin!

It's not selfish - it is deserving!! I would be sick and tired, too.

If I were freeloading on your couch, I promise I would always leave you room and never complain about your computer!!

I hate that feeling of being sick. Hope you're feeling much better and plenty of hot lemon tea! (though my mum reckons no honey because it makes the cold worse).

And a major BOO! at freeloaders.

You deserve a break. I don't know how you handle it.

The only way to stop someone from freeloading is to get really bitchy!! Say what you want. Anyone not freeloading will listen and apologize and then, here’s the kicker- they help- they give you money- they buy supplies.

I hope you feel better, soon.

IF Optimist, then... on December 16, 2009 at 8:00 AM said...

Complain all you want! You aren't being a bitch, you're sick and grumpy and have every right to feel fed up with a person who is taking advantage of your good nature. The REAL question is this...how are you going to wean this person off and get them to take responsibility for themselves?

Think of it this way, every dollar you spend on the mooch is a dollar you don't get to put away for your own kid's savings or college money. Do you and Dirty have enough of a "rainy day fund" that can take care of 2 whole months worth of house expenses? If you don't then you are risking your own family's health and welfare.

It's fab that you are generous to help a person get on their feet when they have fallen, but if they don't have a plan to get on their own...then what?

End rant. You are fabulous. I hope you feel better soon. Thank you so much for all of your love and support.

I really wouldn't be able to take it. Even in ranting, you are way more patient than I would be! I agree with IF Optimist, if she is in ANY WAY taking away from your family, she has got to go. Don't the door hit ya...
