Friday Confessional-It’s Been One Hell of a Week

Luke: I’m just having a bad day.
Lorelai: Zzz.
Luke: What?
Lorelai: Days. You’ve been stomping around, barking at people for days.
Luke: I have not.
Lorelai: Yes, Cujo, you have.-Gilmore Girls

I confess…

That I’m so glad it’s Friday. It’s been one hell of a week and I haven’t been sleeping much. When I don’t get enough sleep I can be a little bit snappy.

I confess…

that the house hunt is already frustrating me. I know it’s supposed to be exciting but it’s also a big giant commitment so it makes me all nervous and fretful. This could be why I haven’t been sleeping.

Then we met with our Realtor on Tuesday and she was a total biatch. It was our first meeting and she didn’t even bother to shake my hand or Match’s. She was rude and short with us and acted as if she were doing us a favor by showing us homes. She even told us she has a day job and then asked if we could schedule viewings around her schedule. I went home that night, emailed her and fired that bitch. BOOM.

I confess…

That Match isn’t making the house hunt any easier by suggesting multiple towns to look in. Finding a home in one town is hard enough, but now we’re branching our search to two…and they are in completely different places. In different counties. My head hurts.

I confess…

That after our meeting with BitchFace Realtor we went to Sassy Couple’s house where Sassy Guy got Match drunk on the drink Skinny Bitch. It’s some weird diet drink that is basically all vodka. This was actually really funny to watch. We played outdoor bean bags (sort of like horse shoes) for hours and it looked a little something like this when the boys would beat us:

It then ended with Match in the fetus position on our bathroom floor. The next morning he told me he was very grateful for my housekeeping prowess and the fact that he knew he was puking into a clean toilet. At least he can see the silver lining!

I confess…

That Thursday I got lost while running errands and spent an hour driving around wasting gas. It was one of those days I really wished I had a smartphone so I could just GPS my way out of there.

I confess…

That I called Match and told him so. He just laughed at my ability to get myself as lost as I had. “How did you end up two towns away?!” Then I hit every red light when I finally did find my way back. And all of the crazy drivers were on the road, and I almost got side swipped twice! Luckily I made it home in one piece.

I confess…

That I almost lost it in the grocery store later that day. The express lane is for FAST people Miss WhotheFStillWritesACheckTheseDays! And she had the nerve to ask for help out with her one bag of groceries. She was not elderly. She was in excellent shape, just whiney. I wanted to punch her. The girl in front of her forgot her pin number and smelled like stale cigars. At least the checker was nice!

I confess…

That the only good part about yesterday was my volunteer interview. I applied to be a volunteer at a crisis nursery. It’s a place where families in need can bring their little ones, ages 0-5 years. The family has to be in real crisis: newly homeless, domestic violence, and so on. My job as a volunteer would be to simply play with the kids and make their time enjoyable. The nursery is their happy place and it would be my job to help them forget what’s going on in their lives and just be a buddy. I cannot wait to start.

I confess…

That after this crazy week I’m SO ready for Geeky’s Bachelorette party this weekend. A little escape and a night out with the woo girls is exactly what I need!

    Yay for firing the bitch! People like that make me want to hit them…just sayin’! Lol…

    The volunteer job sounds great, I wish they had something like that in the (podunk) town that I live in lol!

    Have a great weekend!

    My husband has gotten lost while running errands. The thing is, this was recently and we’ve lived here for 12 years! Happy Friday.

    Sounds like you had an eventful week! Here’s to an even better weekend!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    You have to wonder why she’s selling real estate if her day job is so fabulous?
    Have fun on your girl’s night, they make it all seem better.

    Dude. That is one crazy week!

    I’m so glad you fired that bitch. Whew. Ok…you need to decide which county has the cheapest taxes! You’re welcome.

    How the hell did you get lost? Silly girl. Yes, all the more reason to invest in a smart phone! Or just buy a GPS.

    Match can’t hold his liquor. HAHAHAHAHAHA! I’m kidding. I’m sure he can MOST of the time! lol You’re such a good wife!

    I can’t wait for you to start your volunteering job. I think you will love it. And your heart will love it too! Great practice for your OWN baby. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Gah…sorry about the realtor from hell. You’ll find a better one – then maybe the whole house hunting thing will get more fun for you.

    My husband has been trying for years to get me to put a GPS in my truck. I get lost EVERYWHERE. Even in my hometown. But I refuse…I normally find pretty cool places while I’m lost. :o)

    Have fun at your bachelorette party! Tell Match to have those toilets sparkling for you! It’s gonna be your turn this weekend! :o)

    Jessica

    I swear, we lead parallel lives! We’re house-hunting right now, too! And my husband is driving me nuts by wanting to get out of our current town, but not offering any suggestions that make any sense! Regardless, mortgage rates are so low right now that I think it’s now or never for us. We’re going to look at a place we both like tonight (with my parents, for their feedback on the structural stuff). If all is as good as we remember, we’re going to meet with our realtor tomorrow morning to put in an offer- wish me luck!

    Rachel Murphy

    Good for you girl I would fire her too! To many good real estate agents out there who want your business to put up with that crap!

    Ah your hubs is so sweet noticing the toilet is clean while puking… to funny.

    I could get lost in a papersack… seriously so I am impressed you made it back after winding up in another couple of towns.

    enjoyed your confession

    phoebe

    are you looking to buy a house?? that is so great. lots of luck and don’t settle. find the one that when you walk in, you know it’s it.

    sounds like a heck of a week. big hugs from the east coast!

    Rachel

    You go girl for firing the bitchy real estate agent! The crisis nursery sounds like a great opportunity for volunteerism! Sad that it has to exist but wonderful that it does exist and that good people like you volunteer your time to make the little ones happy while they are there! I would love to do something like that!

    Charlotte

    Hope you had a great time at the bachelorette party this weekend! Sometimes that IS all you need ๐Ÿ™‚ And the volunteer work at the crisis nursery sounds amazing–think of how many lives you will touch.

    PS: I’m glad you found yourself another realtor. This is what they do for a living–they should never make you feel put out. I hope you find another you like a bit more.

    Seriously Shawn

    You played corn-hole. It’s a tailgating game, I love it but I suck at it!

    Ashley

    I get SO* mad when people go through the express lane and have carts full of groceries!! Ugh!!!! And a check? Are you serious? I can’t.

Your comments make my day!
