WTF Wednesday

WTF is going on today?

Re: WTF Wednesday

    Once again my WTF is related to purchasing my condo (sorry for the continued saga).  More specifically my WTF goes out to DH's and my lender.  One of the first documents we sent her were our condo documents laying out the number units, how the condo board will be structured, etc. Our lender said everything looked peachy.... fast forward 6 months when we are getting ready to close and now she says that the condo board structure looks like a problem and is not sure if we can close.... ugh just when I thought that we only needed to get the condo inspected since it is now complete, my husband and I are praying its just a misunderstanding, but at the same time scrambling to find a new lender.  I just want to move!!!! I need peace of mind, knowing I have a place to live and I just want to decorate the nursery and get ready for baby!!!! At this point I just hope we move in by June and before LO decides to make her arrival (we were supposed to close in January) :(

    My WTF is the bump app. It's been messed up all morning. Anyone else?  Bumping on my phone is far easier than the laptop. I suppose I could be productive today... meh. That doesn't sound like fun.

    @rnyland1 sounds like my MIL, she's obsessed with cards for every occasion and gives them for every possible thing. Personally, I think cards are kind of a waste of paper and money UNLESS you are writing something really sentimental and special inside. If you just buy an insane amount if cards with weird cats on them and sign your name inside, I don't get it. She once told me that she was MAD AT ME because my husband didn't get his dad a card for his birthday (to be clear, there was a gift, just no card). Oh and not mad at him, at me, because according to her it's MY JOB to do things like that for him. HAHAHAHA you are hilarious lady. 

    Anyhow, your mom sounds even more intense than my nutty MIL, so props to you for dealing.

    @stellaluna14 my mother has told me that too! that it's my job to send cards for every little thing...uhhh let's see here, no. I never send cards to DH's side of the family. Why? Because his side of family should be HIS responsibility when it comes to cards. Also, while I appreciate a heartfelt card from my husband, or thank you notes from weddings/showers, I don't really "expect" cards at any other time....frustrating. I sent my mother her mother's card with PLENTY of time for it to arrive by Mother's day and guess what? It was still late and arrived the Monday after and my mom was so pissed off. So lame!

    WTF for the week goes to my sister, who took our maternity photos almost 3 weeks ago and has yet to say anything since. I understand editing takes times and I don't HAVE to have them for anything, but I thought I'd just ask how they're coming along. She hasn't even looked at them since!!! WTF! :neutral: She said she'd start on them later this evening. Here's to hoping they're here by the time the baby arrives! She lives about 8 hours from us, so she can't do the newborn photos. I think I should be thankful!! That job is going to a local photo friend.

    WTF to my dearest husband. I mentioned that I am going to try to finish my second labor/birthing book today,  because I already feel like I'm behind - and his response was well you'll have plenty of time to read while I'm gone (he will be out of state during 36-38w for Army stuff, non-negotiable).

    No, wonderfully naive man,  I do not think it's a good idea to wait to learn and practice labor exercises and pain coping methods until just 2-3 weeks before I'm due. Maybe a good time to re-read certain sections as a refresher,  but this is really not the kind of "test" where procrastination is acceptable.

     He's convinced I will go well past EDD and hasn't even cracked the Bradley book I asked him to read. I am already a bit anxious about the possibility of delivering without him,  but I need him to actually know what he's supposed to be doing IF he is there!

    WTF to the young gentleman at the check-in desk at the gym this morning. I've been seeing him for like 4 months maybe more, but today he says, "Ohhhhhhhhh you're pregnant!!! I was going to offer personal training sessions cause I see you all the time... and you were gaining... wasn't sure if you would go for it.  Makes so much sense now!"

    REALLY? I had to laugh because he looks like he's 18 and doesn't know better. But I really hope he doesn't get paid on commission. 
    Wow - just wow.  I wouldn't even know what to say to that. I think I might have laughed but been crying on the inside haha

    Wtf prego brain?? Set my alarm clock for 6pm instead of am yesterday (thankfully woke up around 6 am anyways to pee) and then after I switched it to the correct time last night I forgot to turn it on! Ended up waking up at 7am and was half an hour late to work. I don't have the best memory to begin with, but this is getting ridiculous!

    @PootsDragon Hiring an accountant was such a good call for us because we are TERRIBLE at taxes and have complicated taxes because of working at home/freelancing. It made everything so much easier. And when NC recently sent my a letter trying to claim taxes on income we'd paid taxes on in MD, I just gave it to the accountant and they handled sending NC a letter. Life changer.

    @elenabrent@PootsDragonTotally agree about the accountant! We both work for ourselves, and it's soooo worth it for someone else to figure that shit out.

    @theshannondee This! All of this! I am used to dealing with idiots where I work... but lately it just seems like it has been 1000x worse!

    My vacuum just stopped working for no apparent reason. And because I am pregnant and tired and crazy, I proceeded to sit on the floor and cry about it for like an hour. Both our cars broke down recently, the tub was leaking, and now this? Whyyyyyy do all things hate me lately?


    Omg all the hugs.

    @PhoebeJune1984 in my house, if I'm the only one that uses something,  DH doesn't get to tell me what to do with it.  I'd be donating those old vacuums in a hot second! I bet they takes up a lot of closet space.  I don't tell him what to do with his tools,  he doesn't tell me what to do with mine. 

    My favorite vacuum is the $60 dirt devil upright you can get at Walmart.  It's lightweight,  maneuverable, and easy to take apart.  I wish it had attachments but I have a canister vac so NBD.

    We have 3 vacuums. One is the dyson my parents gifted us for Christmas that we actually use. The others live in the garage and are a wet/ dry vac that is filthy and held together with duct tape, and the other is a brand I've never heard of and is probably older than I am. MH refuses to get rid of the garage-dwellers, even though they're only taking up space. 4 if you count our roomba!!

     We also have a VHS player and a colecovision that don't work somewhere in the basement.

    What is it with guys and refusing to get rid of stuff??

    WTF CAR DEALERSHIP?! We have had the worst year for cars in our house. Both of our cars completely broke down in January so we both had to get new (used) ones at the same time. Thankfully we had savings and were able to find decent, affordable cars so it wasn't the end of the world. Fast forward to last week, my car randomly started making really loud noises on the drive home and I was really afraid the engine was doing the same thing that totaled my old car (literally the engine block cracked in half as I was going 80 on the interstate, it was scary). So I called DH and he told me to take it slow home and he took it to the shop the next day. We bought the full powertrain warranty on this car, the mechanic said it was an engine problem that has nothing to do with anything we have done, and it's going to be almost $2500 to repair. DH texted me today that our warranty claim was denied. He's going to call and try to fight it, but I am just super frustrated. I hate cars and money and underhanded people.

    This vacuum is a Dyson that I bought for myself after my husband and I got married five years ago. I've literally never had a problem with it and I vacuum like five times a week (we have a lot of pets). Luckily it's working again! Turns out my roommate was vacuuming the basement and vacuumed up a bunch of woodchips and shit that got stuck and we're blocking the suction. He fixed it so now I don't have to kill him. This time...

    (This is why I don't like people using my shit!)

    I hate grading. I don't know why the hell I assigned papers for my classes when I can't drink. It is painful and makes me ragey. Also, WTF to the school for scheduling my final for 7:45 tonight. I know one or two students will take at least 2 hours. I just want to go home and sleep, but I have to grade papers and proctor a final. Thank god after this is summer break!

    WTF to this week. I feel like I'm running around like a chicken with my head cut off. Monday/ Tues were normal but today I worked a half day so I could have a meet and greet appointment with my (and the unborn's) new family doctor. Tomorrow I go in to work late so I can make my regular OB appointment, work for a couple hours and then rush to a job interview. Friday I go in late because of a different job interview, and then next Tuesday I have a 3rd job interview. They're all the same internal type of job in my industry, but in different buildings so different competitions. They all involve taking a written test that I need a 70% or higher to pass and I'm having the hardest time studying for them. Me getting one of these jobs would be a huuuuge financial break for us so there's a lot of pressure to do well, but my pregnant brain only wants to focus on registries and the nursery. I failed the last competition I did because I made a bunch of silly mistakes, like only answering Part 1 of a 2-part question, (I blame pregnant brain) and I'm nervous I'll do the same on these. Ahhh stress!!
