Drug Addicts

So, did everyone know that once who get flagged as a doctor hopper, you are pretty much screwed? This happened to Darling Husband today. He is NOT a doctor hopper or a pill popper, but has had a few different things recently that have required pain medicine. So, he calls today to get a refill and goes in to the medicine and is told, nope, sorry, no drugs for you. Awesome. Now, keep in mind, he is a deputy sheriff and is drug tested and has to stay clean for his career. But, try telling that to anybody. Or for that matter, getting anyone to help you figure this out. And now, because he has been called a dope head and liar, he is so far down in the dumps, I am worried about him. So what can we do? Probably nothing, because if we put up a stink, the DEA gets involved, which gets his department involved. Awesome again.

On the flip side of him being accused of being a drug addict, he is probably going to be a narcotics officer sometime in the near future. So, this will mean more money for our family, most nights and weekends together and way more stress for the mama. No wonder I have so many issues.

Oh well. On a happier note, the weather has been awesome this week. And I have won almost $2 to my favorite store, Mami's and Papi's! They do giveaways all the time on their Facebook page and its so much fun. Really like a family.

Alright. Time to get off here and think about picking Roo up.

Stupid husband

I am so freakin' sick of things. I am sick of having to worry all the time about money. I am sick of fighting with my husband. I am sick of him doing nothing unless I leave him a note. I am sick of being the only one to do anything around the house. I am just so damn sick of it. I wish we had more money. I wish we spent less money. I wish I could figure out a way to pay stuff off and save more. I just don't know how to do it. He gets mad at me for nagging him about eating out everyday and then says I spend so much money and its not fair. Does he realize that I might spend $20 a week, where he is spending upwards of $50? And I take clothes to consignment, sell stuff on ebay and craigslist, recycle cans. I do my best to pay for my little bit of yard saleing. He doesn't. He gets mad at me cause I tell him we are broke all the time. But he doesn't understand that maybe I want some help with this. I have all the responsibility and he just does whatever. He never has to worry about money or the baby or the house. It must be nice to have someone else take care of everything. When I do try to include him, he gets mad, saying I don't tell him, I spend like crazy. I could just scream. I am so done with this.

Sorry about the rant. Had to get this off my chest.

Sick

Ugh, so I am so sorry I haven't been on here lately. We have had the flu in the house and I have been too tired taking care of everybody to type anything extra. Baby girl and hubs were both sick. Luckily, we seem to be on the mend, I just hope I don't get it.

Other than that, its nearing the end of yard sale season. On one hand, I am sad because its so much fun. On the flip side, I am so done with getting up early on Saturday and running all over town. I did find a lot of really fun stuff and completely redid my bedroom.

I have decided to sell off all of my sized diapers and just keep the one size ones. This is in preperation for the next baby, which will hopefully be concieved soon. I have a bunch listed on Ebay, now if only they would sell. My stash is still quite large, but not nearly as out of control as it was with the sized diapers.

This was not our month for concieving. I don't know why I thought we could have it happen the first month off birth control. Maybe cause BIL and SIL were able to. We just don't have enough of a matching schedule to make it work. Hopefully next month. I am finally getting the Basal Temp thing down, so maybe we can work something out.

Alright, off for now.

Catchin' up

Wow, what a week it has been so far. This past weekend was incredibly long, and not in a good way. The drain behind my washer got clogged and flooded my kitchen. I spent most of the week fighting with it so I could avoid a call to a plumber. Thankfully, I was finally able to get it cleared Monday morning. So, then I got to catch up on laundry. First off, diapers. Turns out I have enough diapers to go more than 4 days with a toddler. Wow. I had to wash 2 seperate loads, one of covers and the other of inserts. This worked out well, though, because after sitting for almost 4 days, they stunk. I put a little bleach in with the inserts. Worked pretty good, just had to run a extra rinse.

Other than that, hubs and I are doing our best this week to make another baby. Its a little difficult due to differences in schedules, but its working out. I will let you know.

On the weight loss issue, I am down 7 pounds. Not as much as I would like, but better than nothing. And I blew it this weekend, so I don't think thats too bad. I am back on the wagon and hopefully can loose another 10 or so before we find out if all our hard work (hehe) has paid off.

Gotta run.
