Coworkers / Re: There's this thing called cologne
« on: October 11, 2019, 06:38:53 AM »
Ohh I would be horrified if I were this officemate! She would probably feel the same if she knew that people in the office were talking about her and how she smells. If it were me I would like to be told about this, and I sure as hell would do something about it. She probably will, too.

What I think you can do is talk to someone she is really close too, and have that person tell her. If she has a good sense of humor, then maybe someone can tell her in a joking manner. Or maybe someone needs to type her an anonymous letter. But please, let her know. It's her right to know that something is not okay with her. It's not a big issue, it's not something that affects office productivity, but it's something that speaks a lot about her, hygiene-wise.

She might feel embarrassed, but anyone in her place will feel the same. It will pass. But maybe never talk to her about it again, if she's sensitive? But let her know. It would be worse if she hears from other people in the office and not the people she works most closely with.

Confessions / I Hate My Life Sometimes
« on: September 24, 2019, 01:06:57 AM »
Pardon me if this isn't coherent. I just want to ramble about how sucky my life feels right now. I am very bored but can't do anything but type with the fingers on my left hand because my one-year-old is suckling at my breast and if I do so much as move my right arm he would wake up and be cranky because he has only been asleep for 15 minutes.

My tooth hurts.  I went to the dentist a week ago to have this tooth filled after its old filling fell off and she didn't give me what I wanted. Instead she gave me a temporary filling saying I give my tooth a month and if it doesn't hurt she will give me a permanent filling. Said that if the tooth hurts then I either get a root canal or have the tooth pulled. Now it hurts and I'm wondering why the eff didn't I have it pulled when I first went to her. Now I have to spend additional money for the extraction. The root canal treatment isn't an option because it is so effing expensive and I am trying to make ends meet because my eldest is having her bday son (turning 7) and we are planning a small party for her, something she never had from birthdays 2-6. I still don't have any gift wrapped for her and I wonder where the hell I am going to get the money and I don't want to give her small trinkets like what she has received in her previous birthdays because I want this to be a little more special.

MY youngest is still on the boob and it's getting really annoying how he grates his teeth on my nipple.

My goddamn tooth still hurts.

My eldest us growing and I feel like I don't give her enough hugs. She is always seeking for attention and sometimes behaving badly. I'm not sure if she's doing it on purpose so I would pay her attention or if she's just being a kid. I hate that I don't see her as my kid but an annoying brat who's out to ruin my day, every single day.

My hubby is planning to work in Australia and I have ambivalent thoughts about it. It would greatly help with the expenses, sure, but I do not want him missing out on the kids growing up.

I hate that I am ranting when I know I have to be thankful because I have a roof over my head and I have enough food for the whole family and all that but today I just don't feel so thankful. I feel lazy and unmotivated and kind of sad that things are the way they are. I hope my mood picks up soon. I don't want to spend the entire day wallowing.

My little one has moved to the left boob. The right one does not hurt anymore, but this sure does.

Confessions / Re: THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY
« on: September 17, 2019, 01:09:15 AM »
I remember my TOTGA. I still think about him sometimes, but I am happy and content with my family now. I get wistful thinking about him, and I still get the old high schoolish feeling that makes me blush and giggly all over. But isn't that what young love is about? The highs. But I'm not young anymore, and what I have now - a commitment, maturity, a family - is not something I would trade for something that feels good but only lasts for a fleeting moment. Maybe you should get some perspective, m4Riii. What would contacting him do? Would you say hi and hello and maybe meet up for coffee? Reminisce and before you know it you will be kissing and saying you belong to each other? I don't think so, but maybe that's just me. Good luck with whatever you end up doing.

Work / Re: Yes, I hate my job!
« on: September 16, 2019, 11:57:49 PM »
Wow, you people make me feel like I'm lucky I do not have to work. Not to brag, but my husband makes enough for our family. Still, I miss earning my own money. I miss dealing with people on a daily basis. Sure I have interactions with humans - my kids, moms of my eldest's classmates, the cashiers in the supermarket, my husband - but not the kind I used to have before I had kids. It gets lonely sometimes, I miss being the me I was before I birthed these kids. I miss negotiating without using sugary treats or my teats as bribes, haha. I miss tidying up loose ends at work and feeling the satisfaction and fulfillment of a job well done. Now the tidying up I do involves toys, books, clothes, dirty dishes, et al. And I get satisfaction, alright - but it all lasts about two minutes and then I have to do it again. I guess my work at home does not differ so much from what I used to do. I get no monetary compensation, but what the heck. I get more hugs and kisses than I ever imagined getting for the entirety of my life.

I don't hate my job. It isn't as glorified as my office job, but it is a lot more fulfilling. It is not all roses and unicorns (more like germs and mess and endless arguments) but at least there's no politics to speak of. It's not all beautiful,  but I guess as a mother, I have learned to accept (though not love, there's a difference) even the ugly sides of it.

Gratitude / Re: Life and family
« on: September 16, 2019, 11:33:35 PM »
I'm grateful for my family too. I have two kids aged 7 and 1 and they are a handful, but I'm glad to have them. My husband too. I am a stay-at-home mom, and have been since a little before my firstborn came out into the world. I miss working in an office and going out with friends for dinner or coffee after work, but there is nothing like being at home and seeing to my kids' needs and being home to welcome my husband when he arrives from work. Sometimes I want to scream my head off out of boredom from the routine - wake up in the morning, get eldest ready for school, make husband breakfast, play when the baby wakes, blah blah blah, but I have resigned myself to the fact that this is my life now. I guess it's just  a matter of perspective. I'm so glad I found this site - by accident, if I may add - I have some place to rant on. The baby's sleeping now, so I think I have some time to go through the other posts and leave comments. So I think right now I'm saying I'm grateful for my family and for this site, LOL.

Relationships / Re: Wife Addicted to Phone
« on: September 16, 2019, 11:22:34 PM »
Have you tried talking to your wife? You have kids, so maybe your wife has just had it. She's probably done with everything and just wants to stop caring. She's zoning off because she probably needs a break. I don't know. I wish I could do the same, but my kids are little - 7 and 1, so I can't.

Maybe you need to give her a break, like a day or two so she could enjoy time on her own. And then maybe when she gets back from her little holiday she'll be back to her old self. You know, women have needs too. maybe you need to have a dialogue with her, find out what she really wants and needs. For all you know she could be depressed and stuff. And she's escaping through her phone - have you ever even thought about that?
