Whatever Wednesday

Random rants:

~ I have a cold. I am coughing so much and so hard that I'm driving all of my co-workers crazy. I feel bad, but don't you think I'd do something about it? I mean, I took some cold meds this morning and I've been sucking on cough drops like it's my job. Also, I've been drinking hot tea and water all day. Am I missing something? I hate coughing.

~ Yesterday someone in another department (she's really strange and not so tactful) Pointed at me and said "PREGNANT!" and I said "No, you're thinking of N (another person in my dept). She had her baby a month ago." She then proceeded to follow me to where I was walking asking me a bunch of questions about if I have kids and if I want kids and if I plan on having them. I tried walking faster to lose her, but it didn't work. Finally she realized that she was hungry and walked away.

~ Another lady in another department looked at my pictures of my neices and, upon hearing that they were just my neices, asked me if I had kids. I said "no." She said "well you better get on that!"

~ I've only talked to each of these women a total of twice. Obviously they weren't taught manners.

~ I have a pile of work to do, and I REALLY am unmotivated to get it done. I'm blaming it on my cold.

I'm sorry that you're not feeling well and are seemingly inundated with twits in your workplace. Keep getting plenty of fluids and try to rest.

Hey my new friend,

I have enjoyed reading your blog today. Your posts really show your heart.

I know your heart. Trust me, I do. I have PCOS and have expereinced infertiltiy for 9 years. I have a beautiful little girl, though. And she is a story in herself. Adoption is a wonderful thing.

Would you please go to my blog and look at my post from June 26th (I think). It might make you cry. But hopefully it will also make you feel less alone.

I'm thinking of you tonight.

Ugh! Your post is so true and frustrating with IF. Manners are so lacking with people.

My coughing remedy, from my former secretary, hot tea, 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar (ACV), and enough honey to kill the taste of ACV and sweeten it back up.

Hope you're feeling better, hun!

Yeah, some people are just so annoying! Annoys the shit out of me when people just get too nosey!

People are dorks.. doesn't make us feel better, but sometimes- when I get emotions under control, I do laugh at them. :)

As for teh coughing- drink hot lemonade with honey, suck on lemon drops. My choir teacher always had us doing it- and I swear it works!!!

I am sorry you were feeling bad. Hopefully you are feeling better now.

People can be very insensitive and rude. It constantly amazes me.

Arrggghhh - would people feel looking at them and commenting on how they look, or offering unsolicited opinions on their choice of hairdo etc ok?? but noooooo kids you're allowed to just blurt out whatever you think. I actually gave up being neutral and used to say 'yes, we're having kids - if IVF works for us' That shut 'em up. Tossers. Hope you feel better soon
