Okay, I’m not sure what’s going on today. Maybe it’s a full moon? Or the stars are in some sort of strange formation? Or maybe, just maybe, everyone is crazy and I want to punch them all!
Today I decided to ask Facebook about some help with a home improvement project we are doing. I asked about where they got their product and who installed it. Simple, right? Well, it was. It was going great. Lots of good information. Then my mother saw the post. It was about putting laminate in our living room and kitchen. “Laminate is bad for your feet.” “You could slip!” “Wood laminate won’t look good in your kitchen”
AAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!! It’s OUR house and we want laminate!
So, then I’m trying to calm down and relax a little, and I get a Facebook notification from my sister telling me that I’m going to hate laminate. Thanks, again, for telling us what we want/like/need. Then she said I better get some no slip socks. Because apparently I’ve never walked on laminate before in my life….. even though we already have it in our kitchen…..
So, then I get on gmail to chat with my husband, to tell him that my head is about to explode, and a friend of mine messages me. I told him I was about to stroke out so I was trying to relax. He said “you shouldn’t get stressed out. You should get some exercise though.” What the hell? What does that have to do with anything? AND… I ALREADY KNOW THAT!! I AM NOT AN IDIOT!!! Holy cow! I told him that was exactly the type of thing that is stressing me out today… so he goes on and on about how basically I should accept the advice because he has experience, and experience is better than just reading.
Okay, I’m not saying that some advice isn’t good. Like, “buy this type of towel instead of this type, because this type is more absorbent.” Hey! Thanks! But if you start telling me that “breastfeeding is better than formula feeding,” I am going to hunt you down and punch you in the face.
Is this going to continue the entire pregnancy and beyond?? How do I avoid my family and annoying friends for the next 5.5 months? Is everyone experiencing this? I think I need some ice cream…..
Did you know that calcium is good for you while you’re pregnant?
