Reasons to frown

Ok, so we have a smiling thread.  This thread is for all of the little dumb things that make you frown, or angry, or sad, etc., etc.

I'll start.  I had chili for lunch today.  I brought some crackers for the chili and a banana for breakfast.  THE CRACKERS ABSORBED THE BANANA FLAVOR THROUGH THE BAG, SO I HAD BANANA FLAVORED CHILI FOR LUNCH! >:(

One of my friends from school has been hospitalized due to an eating disorder. :( I'm hoping to visit him once my cold goes away. We aren't very close but I want to be supportive and see him beat this!

That's very sweet of you. I'm sure he'll be thankful that you came to see him. Knowing someone is there for you is always one of the best things to feel when you're going through a rough patch.

I'm not sure if this is frown or slanty face. I will say frown because I'm very hungry. Last night I went to a friend's house and ended up crashing there. I just got home about half an hour ago and REALLY wanted breakfast. As I entered the kitchen, my ears detected a noise. Various noises. Ryan and his girlfriend were having sex (his room is off the kitchen). Sigh. I left the kitchen without breakfast.

I woke up this morning with a horrifically sore neck for no reason at all.
I've been sitting at my desk for the last hour and a half with tears in my eyes trying as hard as I can not to cry, it hurts so freakin' bad.

I've been rebuilding my engine for the whole day "with tears in my eyes trying as hard as I can not to cry, it hurts so freakin' bad."

I am not even sure how it happened.  Woke up.... fine.  Ran 5 miles.... fine.  Then.... BAM!!  Sore neck. :-(

ooouch working on an engine with a bung neck sounds much harder/more painful that working at a computer with a bung neck.
Hope you feel better soon!

Since Friday, I've eaten enough cookie dough for 24 cookies.

I just had a phone call from my ex, G, asking what's wrong with Briggs, my cat. I tell him, then he starts reaming me about how I need to take care of them and feed them. When I tell him 'you know I take care of my cats' he replied that he didn't know and that he always would feed them because I'd ignore them while they'd cry....After G left, I was able to get them down to eating 2x's a day vs 4 - 5x's.....Same daily amount, just fewer feedings. I know he's concerned, and wants what is best for them....but GODDAMMIT!!! He should know I'm doing all in my power to take care of them!!! The last thing I need right now is to be told I'm being a bad animal parent.

I'm sooooo pissed right now!!!! The kiddo is napping. All I want to do now is cry.

I went to my chiropractor for an extra adjustment last night on the way home from work, but was still in pain/not sleeping last night, and today has been only slightly better than yesterday, by which I mean the pain level is approximately the same, but I've actually been able to restrain from crying at my desk today.

Found out yesterday that my job is definitely finishing up in a few weeks, and I'm still not getting any love from the job applications I've been sending out.

Work the last couple of days has been getting to me.  Normally I thrive on deadlines/multi tasking, but this week everyone wants their job done first/now/yesterday, and I'm suffering from major headaches because of it.

Even the thought of the upcoming visit from my brother and his girlfriend this weekend isn't cheering me up like it usually would, because I know that will mean another weekend where I don't get the sleep I need, and that means next week is going to be just as bad/worse.

While capturing a cricket in my bug catching jar, I broke off one of his legs.  I apologized to him, but I still feel really bad.

I had to borrow $500 from Shane last week so I could make rent this month. Rent is $550.
he's not really in a position to be lending out that kind of money, and he needs it paid back by the end of this month. Then, of course, I'll need to have money for November's rent, too. Oh, and then there's the $700 in credit card debt...

I have no job, and almost NO ONE is hiring. The few places that are hiring won't even acknowledge my application/resume. I'm honestly considering prostituting myself just to get out of this mess. Craigslist seems to be designed for just that purpose.

That jerk ("Sanvean") ran off with my van, after saying he'd pay me back the $2,600 I spent on it.
The tricky bastard didn't wake me up the morning he got the title, so the van is in his name alone.
I should have pressed charges at his arraignment when I had the chance (over the matter of his physically assaulting me), but I freaking blew it.

I am SO fucked.

I was totally thinking about you a bunch today CW! I was picturing you in the band uniform, and looking at the rats you drew for me. I am so sorry things aren't going well for you. It has to get better, since it really can't get any worse. Keep your head up and think positively.
I am glad you are back!  :)>>>

CW...I'm in a similar position - my bank accts combined are at -1100 due to kitty's er vet visits. I've been out of a job since March. My roommate bailed on me, so I have yet to make this month's rent. My unemployment ran out last month, food stamps renewal are on hold due to unnecessary paperwork requests (wanting pay stubs from of roommates)... They should be reinstated within 2 weeks. After MONTHS of applying for jobs, I FINALLY got a call back and have an interview for a job set up Monday. AND my car's gonna need approx $1600 of work in a month or so.

Hang in there!!

Also, look into taking the asshole to civil court where you can sue for monetary damages.

I think I've pinpointed the source of the stiffness and pain, here. Women like us tend to carry our stress in our necks and shoulders. You need some down-time, honey. Or a new job. Or both.

And definitely you need brownies.  :)>>> They don't cure anything but they sure make you feel better.

Somehow the landlord found out I was living here and now I have to go pay $50 for the application fee and have my credit checked. My credit is fine (no credit) but paying an extra $50 sucks, and the landlord scares me.
