Deep thoughts





Ok, I'm lying to you. No deep thoughts at all. Heck, not even sure I have a thought process anymore, it is gone, in a black hole.


I worked 101 hours this week, yes in one week, yes it is possible. Not possible to keep your sanity though. I haven't read but maybe two post this week, all I had time for. I only checked my email every 3 days and then didn't check much of it.

I had staffing issues and health issues come up at work, which affected how much I had to work. I slept very little. I'm getting ready to do a shift that starts at 1030pm and will end sometime tomorrow evening.

My kids are with my parents (I love my parents) and my husband is NOW at work, though he was home ALL week and didn't do one dish. I worked my butt off and he couldn't do a lousy dish. Cause he didn't feel like it. I'm almost at a 100 post, should I have a giveaway involving Child Husband?? Would any of you comment if I did? Or would you be afraid to win him.


Now off to do a WEEKS worth of dishes and will also be leaving a note for my child husband to tell him that Santa ain't leaving him any gifts this year!

That is an insane amount of work to do in one week, and by work, I mean paid employment outside the home. I am not referring to the week's worth of dishes or any other household things that you are left to handle now. For that, by the way, I believe the term is "justifiable homicide" .... just sayin' ;) !

Hang in there - I hope your schedule eases up sometime before Christmas. Aw heck, Thanksgiving even!

I hate you've had to work that much. 7 x 24=168. I think you've worked waaaayyyy over your limit!! Maybe as you are having to wash the dishes you can pretend with each dunk that you are "taking care" of said Child Husband. That may be better than jail time for actually hurting him..........

MamaPoRuski said...

Wow, I was wondering what happened to you, thought you had an eighties hangover LOL! (We are watching Breakfast Club this weekend, didn't get enough flashback memories-just wanted to see if it's still profound twenty years later...)
I find leaving lists is best. That and phone calls. Better yet-Paper plates!

Hot Tub Lizzy said...

That's. Crazy.

All of it.

Can I get Child Husbands e=mail or text# cause I need to chew his butt....

Cristin said...

You are insane...

I don't know what I'd do with Child Husband... I might need someone to help me hide the body though....

;)

Oh my gosh that it toally INSANE. Are you ok? I hope they are paying you loads to recompense you in some way. And I am so glad you have your parents there for support. Please look after yourself!!

Yaya said...

Please please please tell me you're joking about 101 hours?!?!?!?!?!?

My name is Sarah said...

This is Joyce. Yes by all means send Child Husband over here. I love to whip lazy a** men into shape. Better yet send him up to Alaska - let "first dude" teach him a thing or two. I bet Sarah Palin doesn't have a load of dishes in her sink right now because Todd knows she'll kick his butt. LOL. You poor thing - I can't imagine being clocked in for that many hours. Take a deep breath at least.

I'm not sure how I have gotten over to your blog...but I LOVE it. So true to life. The 80's post made me laugh then cry. Now I am so sorry I ate at Taco Bell LOL.
Sometimes I'd like to give my hubby away too. See #3 on my post What Makes A Great Sister. If I lived near by I'd come help ya with those dishes..Missy

You need a day at the spa!!!!

Child husband needs a time-out! Then I would make him clean up his mess!!!

At least you have a quiet house to meditate in for a while.

HiHoOhio said...

I am sorry for you but deep thoughts would never be expected. Miss you online but totally understand. Hope it gets better soon. And the husband comment on my blog is priceless!

Michele said...

Ah, you poor thing! You must be exhausted. Hope things look better for you soon.

heathersister said...

God luv ya! Hope it will all be over soon and you will get a few days off.

Would love to celebrate your 100th post with you coming up, but you can keep Child Husband, must of us have our own, thankyouverymuch.

Try and have a good week.

Mrs4444 said...

That stinks. My sister divorced her child husband; she liked waiting on him until they had two kids and she suddenly found herself a single mother of three.

Glad you still have your sense of humor!

linda said...

Please take it easy before you get sick, sick, sick! You're wearing yourself out!

As far as your giveaway, one hubby is enough...and believe me, I'd like to giveaway mine sometimes too!

Missy said...

Oh. My. Lord. I would kick his ass. And I thought our little town raised em' better! (: But that wouldn't explain my husband, who thinks the empty cream of wheat packages belong on the counter. Once I left them there for 2 wks until the cat thought it was a good litter box and peed on it! ha! Guess who didn't clean that up?
Being in your field of work is so challenging, because folks still need care, even when staffing or health issues come up. You might be a saint. Really.

Casey's trio said...

Ugghh..what a week! Did you sleep at all? Hope this one is better.

Heather said...

What gets me is that regular staff can't work much over 60 hours a week due to burn out but let's use those HC's...okay, rant over. :)

And you can keep Child Husband. Mine might be almost 41 but he's still just about as good as a piece of used chewing gum.

Take care of yourself!!!!!!!

mine, by magpie said...

omg, he's so fired!!!! you shouldn't have done them, there should have been a guy doing dishing with a taser up to his back! good lord! ihope your week this week is much smoother :)

Skifeet71 said...

I did not know you had any Dishes?
I can not even find 'ONE CUP'for coffee when I'm there!

Michelle said...

I'd take him, but I'm really trying to down size.

Woman.....you need a vacation!!!

Leiann said...

Sounds like you had a "FUN" time. That's definately a load of work. Insane, as most people have commented. And no thanks on the Child Husband. I'm still training mine and don't need another ;)

Diamond said...

Wow! I commend your strength, physical and mental. Isn't it amazing how, as women, we naturally take control and do what needs to be done without a thought? Take it easy, as soon as you can. You're in my thoughts.

JennyH said...

I know- what is with men (and kids- but really those are 2 of the same)- they can't lift a finger to help out at all!??

Well, I'm sure you had fun scrubbing and cleaning and working a job as well!

You are a busy lady!

Melodie said...

Your children weren't home all week, and your husband couldn't even clean up after himself? WTF?! Yeah, I wouldn't enter that contest. My husband has enough lazy people around here to clean up after already. ;)

christie said...

Oh man. I think I would literally go insane if I worked that many hours. You need happy pills and a husband who actually does dishes.
I wish I could help.

Kristi Smith said...

Ha! The comments are funny.

I don't want your child husband.

My adult husband does dishes while I watch TV. ;)

The Boss Lady said...

I always say I'm raising three boys...and the urge to smother the oldest one is getting stronger...just breathe.

Heather said...

Yep, been there, done that. Wasn't 'til I threatened to withhold s&x that he even took notice of my extreme irritation with his lack of help around the house. Of course, with you working a bojillion hours, I'm sure there's not a lot of that business goin' on anyway.

Hmmm, you gotta come up with something that'll work. I'll get back to you...

Oh, i love the bleach in the water remark.... might have to remember that one for my own nondomesticated adult in the house
