Teacher here. Love my job. I just got divorced a year ago and am back to my maiden name. Glad kids love me, remember me, and stop by my room to chat but the majority of them know me as Mrs. Married Name. I'm reminded of EXH 180 days a year. FML

My grandma has been rapidly losing weight, extra distant and looking sickly since she moved in with her BF. Never met him but I suspect something---weird? is going on. Not necessarily bad or sinister but strange.

Realized I have been calling a mom in DDs class the wrong name for 5 years. Only the end letter was off but still. Mortified! She didn't correct me until now. OMG

No matter the biggest/longest pads I use, I usually leak a bit at least once every period. Not that it's heavy, but I roll around at night, make it to the bathroom a teeny bit late so pad/tampon leaks a little---etc.

I like summer the best, but after awhile, I like the chill of fall and the foliage, then like the chill of winter and the blooms in spring. Feel weird for not having a favorite season.

NEVER during the school week do I cook my kids a hot breakfast. I have to get ready for work and not getting up super early to make pancakes or omlettes so it's cereal, toast, Eggo waffles and if DS13 wants eggs he can scramble them himself. No shame!

My husband has to steamroll over every single God damn project, no matter how small, that I try and start on my own. Like PISS OFF and let me do it! I'm not an idiot, I can manage! Why can't he just leave me be and give me a tiny bit of praise in the end?

Engaged & scared of getting married because I don’t want my children to lose Medicaid. How shitty it is to be An American and have to decide between marriage and health insurance.

I need to sleep train my preschooler. I think the only way will be to lock her in her room at bedtime... I have a lot of guilt. But mama needs to sleep! And get some lovin’!

H comes home today and tells me he's quitting his job because he can't handle the bullshit. He just started there in April. I'm at the same job 27 years and I don't think he made it to a year at a job yet. Wtf was I thinking?

No dad. I did a lot of self work in therapy and learned how to be a good partner (and also be able to recognize a good partner). H is an amazing man, husband and father. I don’t think this an accident. I worked hard to get here

I may receive a small inheritance if a loved one dies. I don’t want them to die, but I can’t stop thinking about how I could use the money. The guilt over this makes me want to avoid them and being around them makes me feel like a scumbag

Today I was an excellent version of myself. I was actually able to BE the person I always strive to be. I was a good wife, a good mother, and a good friend. I did something nice for myself and was kind to myself mentally... days like this are so rare

The thought of remaining married makes me feel emotionally exhausted. DH is trying but it may be too little too late.

Just so meh about my life. Feel like I’m of no importance to anyone - I’m invisible unless they need something. Can’t wait for it all to end. And this is me ON antidepressants, ugh.

When, in response to his frequent desire for post-50 sex, I told DH "When I talk with my friends, they tell me none of them are having sex w/their DH's any more either! You know what this means - don't you?" DH said "Yeah - you need to get new friends!"

So burnt out doing everything. Work FT at a demanding job. Do everything for kids and new puppy. All household chores and finances. Dh mows the lawn once every 3 wks and deserves an award. Eye roll.

Apparently, my hormones decided to give me two periods a month instead of one. How awesome is perimenopause? Blah.

I hate when DH buys clothes for me. He's terrible about guessing what size to get and, even if he does get the size right, his taste in women's clothes definitely runs more to the slutty side than mine.

DH is a sucker for anything "Neat!". Unfortunately, when HE finds something neat, he buys it for ME as a gift, figuring he kills 2 birds w/one stone - get the neat thing AND take care of my bday gift. More clutter rather than something I want or need.

I hate my MIL. I’m cordial but it’s so hard, she’s pure negativity. She’s narcissistic, petty, a gossiper, mean and passive aggressive. No one in H family notices, she plays the victims card well.I can honestly say if she died, I probably wouldn’t be sad.
