In the midst of this crisis, C-Dub is talking about quitting his job.
ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME??????
Points for me, I managed to stay calm and talk him down using reason:
a: you have a baby on the way
b: your wife has no job
I should have known this was coming. C-Dub is notorious for loving a job for a few months, then deciding he hates it around month 6( he’s right on time). He’s also been making “noises” about being unsatisfied at work. But I put it off to the fact that he never got a good training, he’s never done this kind of work before, and it’s just a new situation. I understand the frustration. I was there last year when I was the only one working and hated my job. But I made sure not to quit one job without having another! And even then, I worked TWO jobs until he got one!!!!!!
He had the nerve to say that McDonald’s would be better than the job he has now.
OK: $45,000/year vs maybe $15,000??????
ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME???????
I can just feel my blood pressure going up. This on top of me not feeling well all day. I’ve been so lethargic and sleepy that I am worrying a little. And then he tried to make me feel guilty about wanting to order a pizza tonight instead of cooking because we need to save money. I KNOW this. But I am willing splurge tonight on a $15 pizza to keep us from eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches or cooking.
Can I just scream? Curse him out when he gets home? Strangle him in his sleep and get the insurance money?
I.Do.NOT. Need. This.Right.Now.
Well. There’s good news and bad news.
Tina Tuner was awesome!!!!! That woman is my SHERO!!!! I want to be just like her when I am 68. I want to be able to move just like that. Hell, I want that much energy now!
My second appointment was today, classified as the “official” initial OB workup. A lot of questions, a pap smear(yuck!) lots of blood work, I gave some pee. But NO ULTRASOUND!!! It was a big disappointment. It’s all about insurance and what they would pay for. But, she tried to hear the HR with a Doppler. We heard it very briefly at 160. She(my midwife) was happy. Hmmmmmmm. She said my uterus is measuring right on target(I guess that ‘s something). But that was kind of a let down. I am trying to be positive. I heard a heartbeat. My Baby Dub raspberry is there!
Now, the BAD.
C-Dub is being laid off!!!! They are giving him plenty of notice. His last day is 12/31. So he has 7 weeks to find another job. And I have 7 weeks to find insurance! This means that I have to go back to work full time!!! I really really didn’t want to , but I guess I have no choice now. I am trying to look at the bright side of this. We have over 6 weeks to get it together. Surely we can get it together by then?
