WTF....We are throwing some more pity parties over here!!!

I have been totally M.I.A for the last week and I'm so sorry that I've deprived you all of my profound rants and rambles.  But seriously the last 8 days have been maybe the shittiest ever!  Remember last Monday when we were having a little pity party over here at My Fantabulous Wonderful Life....well the fucking pity party isn't over...we could actually call it a bash right now....we are well beyond just a party! 

Last Monday I just started out crabby....I shouldn't have bitched because it's all gone down hill from there.  Work has been beyond stressful with events that I would rather not talk about because god knows it will probably get me in trouble....my mouth has been known to do that from time to time.  So....I've been dealing with some work drama and really reevaluating what I want to do when I grow up.  Then on Wednesday I got a text from Stacy(daycare provider) saying that her daughter was running a super high fever and was diagnosed with hand foot mouth disease.  Sweet!!!!  Poor little peanut was absolutely miserable.  Plus it's highly contagious so Justin and I decided to keep Mees home on Thursday trying to be proactive about the situation.  I went to work on Thursday and got a call from Justin about an hour later telling me that Mia was running a fever of oh...somewhere around 103.  Yeah....sweet shit huh??  Well she wasn't getting better and her fever wouldn't break so he finally brought her in...come to find out the poor girl had blisters all in the back of her throat and mouth...hand foot mouth!!  So now I have this very sick little girl on top of a really really shitty ass week....not good for my mental status lately (oh you know...the whole postpartum depression, loneliness, single mom because Justin is still working nights thing....mental status is going down the tubes). 
Mia was finally starting to feel better by Saturday but Justin and I were really lacking in the sleep department.  I woke up Sunday morning at about 2am with a migraine....worst "headache" I've ever had.  I was pretty much bed bound for the day and sick to my stomach because it hurt so bad.  Nothing I took touched it plus I couldn't eat because of how nauseous I felt....empty stomach, tylenol, ibprofin and vicodin are not a good mix.....it's a barfy mix is what it is!  Plus I was just not feeling good!
Then this morning I got a phone call at about 3:30am from my mom telling me that my Grandma (dad's mom) passed away.  She lived at the nursing home that my mom and I work at.  It was very sudden and unexpected. 
So...I was going into this Monday trying to have a better attitude and then I hear this awful news.  It sucks...sucks ass!  I'm sad and feel awful for my dad.  She was 92 and lived a good life but nonetheless death still sucks. 
In the meantime after dealing with all of this this morning I made a doctors appointment for myself to just get checked out since my headache still hadn't really gone away and I'm still feeling like shit.  So they did a strep test...came back negative.....oh but guess what.....I now got the fuckin hand foot mouth disease. Yep...blisters all in the back of my throat and mouth.  Apparently it is very uncommon for adults to get but yes....this adult right here...fuckin got it.  I feel like I am continuously swallowing needles and that my mouth is on fire ( I honestly feel so bad for little ones who get this because it aint cool...not one little bit).  Honestly....I don't really know what else to say except FUCK!!!  So now I can't go to work for the rest of the week...which wasn't all that bad since Justin and I had already taken Thursday and Friday as vacation days so we could take Mees to the water park of America and spend some family time together since we've really lacked that the last couple of months(which has now been cancelled due to my grandma's services...which is obviously more important).

So....thats why I have been a bad bloggy friend and have not posted or commented in a week.  I can only hope that things will start to look up......and I can only hope for your sake that it does or your gonna be joining in on some more pity party bashes!!!
It has to get better right???
And this wasn't supposed to be a poor me post....just felt good to write it all out!  Thanks for listening!


  1. Aww, sweetie. I am so sorry about your Grandma and I am sorry about you and Mia being sick. I've not had that but working with kids, I did catch Herp angina which is similar to Hand foot mouth...minus the foot and hand:) Crappy , shitty week for you!Did they get you some Imitrex for your migraine? Do I need to fed ex you some? You need to go somewhere and just scream your head off and get all this shit off your chest.Then come inside and get good and loaded. Then maybe some marital relations to relieve some stress. you poor baby! SUPER BIG HUGS AND PRAYERS COMING YOUR WAY!Feel better!

  2. Oh, I am so sorry. Thar just sucks. My oldest got hand, foot, and mouth and it was horrible. My husband got it too. Just sucks. Sorry. Hope you feel better.

  3. Not at all good, Nikki. And don't you hate it when you do a vent blog and then things get worse but you've sorta used up your vent... not to worry. We're all hear to listen to whatever you have to say.

  4. It will get better - you hang in there and try to get past this, one day at a time. Take your time, we'll be here.

  5. It's definitley time to break out the pity party pants and have a good wallow. it sounds like you've been under some major stress and things have just been going from bad to worse. Hang in there hun, brighter days are on the horizon.

  6. Oh, honey, I am so, so sorry for everything. My thoughts and prayers are with your Dad & your family--death does suck. It blows balls :(

    And I hope the sickness leaves y'all alone--you have had a week from hell, I think you deserve a break now.

    {{hugs}} for you honey!!

  7. Oh my gosh this is too much!!
    First of all, I'm SO sorry to hear about your grandma. It doesn't matter how old someone is...death is never an easy thing to deal with. I'm sending good thoughts and e-hugs to your whole family.

    And I'm sorry about your rando sickness. I've never even heard of it before, but I hope you kick it quickly.

    You could NEVER be a bad bloggy friend!! I hope things start getting easier for you now. I'm so so so sorry you are going through all this! *hug*

  8. I am so sorry for your shitty week...and that this week isnt going to get any better for you!
    Keep your chin up...

  9. Fuck! I thought I had it bad but you defiently took the torch on that one. My daughter had the same sickness from daycare when she was 1 yrs old and it was awful so I know what your dealing with. I'm so sorry to hear about your grandma on top of all your dealing with (bless your heart). I hope that all the bad stays far far away from you and just know we're praying for you guys during this awful time.

    Stay strong and go lick your enemy in the face to pass on the lovely HFMD. :) Muah!

  10. It sounds like you definitely have had a "when it rains it pours" week for sure. (((HUGS)))) So sorry! Will be praying for your families health (emotionally in loss & physically with this crud going through the ranks)

  11. Aww I'm sorry :( I just had hand foot and mouth myself last week, and I know how much it sucks! I will definitely be praying for you and your family.

  12. You really do understand, don't you? I think we both deserve a break now. I hope you are feeling better!

  13. I'm really sorry to hear about your grandma. And wow, what a crap week. I've had a few of those myself, especially in Q's first year of life. Yes, pity parties galore. Hope that you're feeling better now!

  14. Oh no, too much to deal with :( I'm sorry for your sick little M (sick kids are NO fun!) and I'm more sorry about your loss. Thinking you you and your family!
