    Default just need to vent...

    So, my MIL watches DS while I work 3 days a week. I'm not happy about it - don't particularly like her, but whatever.

    When I'm trying to get my stuff ready in the morning, she just wants to talk and talk about people that I don't know (and don't really care about), and it distracts me from what I am doing.

    So this morning, 9am I pull my pump out at my desk and start getting everything hooked up and I find that I don't have my shields/horns/whatever you want to call them!.... ugh... Thanks a lot...

    Since I'm only working part time, I really can't go back home, so I decide to run to Babies R Us about 2 miles away. Unfortunately, they don't open until 9:30 (15 minutes), so I go to Target about a 1/2 mile from BRU.

    Thank God that I use the Large size because that was all they had.

    And when I checked out, their coupon machine gave me a coupon for formula... seriously?!?!?!

    Ugh... Not a great way to start the week...

    Thanks for listening!

    I don't really care for my MIL either. She complains that she doesn't ever see my DD, however never makes time to see her or offers to take her! Unbelievable! The one time she watched her, every time she fussed, she stuck a bottle in her mouth. Hello...trying playing with her or taking her for a walk! Sorry...been a bad day so far!

    I'm sorry! I swear it's generational. My MIL is always telling me to call up members of her congregation for random things. I'm like I don't know these people and that is awkward. And then telling a story and getting hung up on remembering someone's name "her name was....hmmm...betty...yes it was Betty. Betty, what was her last name? Smith? I think Betty Smith...or maybe it was..." just tell the story already. I don't care about people's names.

    And Target for giving you a formula coupon when you buy breast pump parts. I'm glad you found the right size horn. Our Target only has the standard size.

    Wow... it is SO nice to know I'm not alone! Sometimes a girl just needs a little support!

    We're in the middle of a massive storm right now, which kinda stinks, but once I get home, I will have a great reason to put on my PJ's and snuggle with my sweet boy!

    Thanks a bunch ladies!!
