One of Those Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Days.

Just call me Alexander and please give me a few minutes to vent. I promise you'll laugh at my frustration, complete with pictures.

For starters, I have had this horrible head cold for days now. Six days to be exact. And it moves from my sinuses to my chest and back to my sinuses and I hate it. I can hardly breathe as it is, and congestion certainly isn't helping matters. It also hurts like the dickens when I first wake up in the morning and try to swallow. I might as well be trying to swallow shards of glass. I know, I know. I have this lime green paper tacked up to the bulletin board, highlighting "safe meds during pregnancy," but really? "Cool mist humidifier, Robitussin DM and Cepacol" isn't going to do a whole lot for me now. Why even bother? I have a major case of the grumpies.

Next, Sheepie is a very bad dog. Do you hear me, Sheepie? A VERY BAD DOG. Let me enter into evidence pictures number 1 and 2.

Picture Number 1:
Anybody notice anything different about any of these pierogi?

Perhaps we should take a look at Picture Number 2:

Those are Sheepie teeth marks. A Sheepie Nibble, if you will. Bad dog, Sheepie. Bad Dog.

Moving forward, I would like to enter another picture into evidence against Bad Dog Sheepie. All I want to do is lay on the couch, catch up on mindless DVR'd television and drink lot's of hot tea, however, Sheepie has other things in mind. Take for example, picture number 3:

That would be the ripped to shreds (and half eaten) order summary from the recent online shopping spree Hubs let me indugle in. I typically never need to return clothes. I've been the same size, give or take five to ten pounds (five to six beers, a few chicken wings or 2 years of heavy drinking in college) since my senior year of high school and therefore, never need to return clothes. Except when ordering maternity shirts from Old Navy. I am not a small. A small pretty much makes me look like a boat. No joke. Therefore, I need to return the six shirts to avoid looking like I'm wearing a muumuu. Thanks for destroying not only my return shipping label, but also my order summary, Sheepie. I'm sure they won't need either of those things when I try to make these returns.

I'm snowed in. I'm pregnant. Like an idiot, I attempted to shovel a bit this morning, in an effort to de-snow my car so that I could think about going into work. My street wasn't even plowed. And god forbid, I be the only house on the block that doesn't shove their 10 feet of sidewalk. I would be shunned for eternity. No jokesies. Let's just say I shoveled for approximately fifteen minutes before I became a wheezing mess, ditched the shovel somewhere in the front yard and crawled back inside.

I am so over this day.


  1. Bad dog indeed!!

    Hope your day improves!!!

    Think of the good things: you have a super cute dog, a baby growing inside you, and spring is SOO close!!

  2. I just want to say that that little doggy nibble is nothing!! My boxers would have eaten the whole tray, haha. I am wondering about your invoice...did they send you a copy to your email that you could print off when you ordered it?

  3. I have a bad dog, too! haha...sometimes hes too darn cute, though.

    as for this snow...girl...I feel you. I am NOT outside doing this at all--Declan is out there now.

    Oh and ON maternity does run a little big!

  4. Why is it that dogs always eat the things that are either irreplaceable, or super expensive
    ? Sometimes I think they are being spiteful for not getting enough attention...

  5. I can't believe he stopped at a nibble! My hound dog would have had the whole tray gone before I could have blinked! He's a pig, what can I say!

    Bummer about the return though...maybe ON will cut you some slack? I have heard their maternity clothes run HUGE which makes me hesitant to order anything from them before trying things on.

  6. Classic nibbling picture.

    As far as ordering clothes, I do maternity from Gap and Old Navy, too. Their size charts are perfect so check those out. I am a S in Old Navy and M at Gap. However, don't order pants. Try those on in person. Trust me! I hope your day gets better!

  7. Oooo Sheepie... he should be nicer to his momma when she is sick. Hope you feel better soon!

  8. Hang in there! It can only go up, right?!

  9. you poor thing. hope you feel better!

  10. Bad doggy! Hope your day got better!

  11. oh girl.. sounds like both you and the sheepie have quite the case of cabin fever! i'm sorry! but if if makes you feel better, my dogs would have eaten the whole tray.. hope your day got better!

  12. I hope things got better for you! Today is a new day!
