Go Crazy? Don’t mind if I do!

I have somehow developed a yeast infection. It’s been around for 3 days. I think it’s in response to the antibiotic I’m taking for my ear, although it’s not listed as a side effect. I can’t figure out any other reason I would have one. I haven’t had one in…10 years? or so. Long enough that I can’t rightly remember at any rate. It’s driving me MAD! I think these things exist just to drive women abso-freaking-lutely nutso! I’m going to the store today but I might kill someone first!

On the killing front, Chuckles is still in danger. He loves to sass every last female in his life…both SIL’s, MIL, me. When we get angry he says “I’m just teasing”. He doesn’t seem to get that IT’S NOT FUNNY. At least Giggles is ok with me slapping him, which I’ve done several times. He brings out the worst in me and it’s frustrating. I have a hard enough time controlling my temper without someone intentionally provoking me just because he thinks it’s funny. He also doesn’t understand tone of voice and hasn’t learned to read behind the words. Everyone knows that women rely on these two things to communicate. The smart man will learn this lesson quickly. The stupid one listens to just the words, filters it through his man brain, and then acts. Even when I am totally NOT subtle and tell him to knock it the fuck off…he doesn’t get it. I’ve never met a more dense male in my LIFE!

Aaron had to ask MIL yet again to take her ass outside to smoke. Every time. Without fail. It’s making Giggles nauseated to be exposed to it. Of course, we told her before Giggles arrived that she needed to go outside for the health of the baby and Giggles. She agreed…but then only goes out if Giggles is in the back room. Well, the smoke is getting into the kitchen (because it’s an open area!) and making her sick. She’s asked MIL a few times to go out, and MIL will…twice…but then she’s back in. So Aaron got to be really firm with both her and FIL and told them it was making it hard for Giggles to breathe (he misunderstood, apparently) and they said they would. I doubt it…if they cared about someone’s ability to breathe, they’d go outside always already since they know I have asthma. We’ll see what happens. I don’t want to get involved because it won’t be pretty, but I will if I have to. I have no problem with ordering them to go outside or stop smoking.

School starts in 2 1/2 weeks. On one hand, it’s only 2 1/2 weeks away! I haven’t gotten 1/4 of the things done this summer that I wanted to. On the other hand, it’s still 2 1/2 weeks away! I want/need to get out of this house. Chuckles will hopefully start his job soon, but I still need out. Because of my schedule I will probably be spending a lot more time on campus this year, which means a lot less time at home. 🙂

Ok…I think I’m done with my update. Please keep Baby Blues in your prayers. She just got her BFP and is spotting and on bedrest. Also, Adrienne got her BFP, and is having some worries. Please pray for them in the coming weeks. Thanks!

  1. Ick. Hope the infection clears up!

  2. yuk! I hate yeast infections! I agree, they must be here strictly to bug us. Could very well be from the antibiotic… its a s/e of anything penicillin or amoxicillin based. I feel your pain darlin, and hope it goes away quickly!thanks for tipping me off to the blog roll. I’m thinking about it, and instead of writing you a big giant comment, I think I’ll post a blog, lol.

    “He also doesn’t understand tone of voice and hasn’t learned to read behind the words. Everyone knows that women rely on these two things to communicate. The smart man will learn this lesson quickly.” Whoa! There are women who do not do that and can not fathom women who do, and would hope to God that someday this practice of double speak dies out. If you want to be understood always be straightforward, using doublespeak invites confusion and expecting the other person to mind read. Good luck with the yeasties beasts, not fun even with the rapid treatments available these days. Not fast enough in any case!

  4. Tigger, I saw your post on Lost & Found. I’m still TTC, but I wanted to point you towards Pamela Jean at http://coming2terms.com, Irish Girl at http://lifeasididntplanit.blogspot.com, and Miss E at http://southcitysadie.typepad.com. Enjoy!
