I am a big whiner but….

I learned something from my husband last night.

Let me start with the whining.

This has really not been one of my better weeks. Aside from really not feeling terribly perky I am not sleeping well, and there has been some additional stress with the whole – OMG you have a giant new tumor that grew in three months to larger than your three year tumor was, and then adding in the Plague killing antibiotic. Last night I went to work out and for the FIRST TIME EVER I had to quit a workout at the halfway mark – really it was the 37 minute mark, but I’m not bragging.  Then to add insult to injury driving home from my failed workout I realized that I hadn’t eaten anything but a few mini donuts and a low-calorie boost drink all day! DUH!!! No sleep, no food, disease and drugs…you can’t work out that way. I am on an official rest till I am done with the antibiotics.

So I got home and started bitching and whining at my husband and son and then telling them that on top of that someone who barely knows me did something nice for me, 2nd time in the day that happened – more on that when I can give you pictures  – which always leaves me flustered. I never know why, I don’t mind attention, I mean for goodness sakes I have been blogging every detail of my life for the last three years. And then my husband said something to my son that explains so many things about me and my attitudes and my life. He said “Your mom hates people feeling sorry for her”. OH MY GOD! I do!! I really really do!  I had never put it in those words in my head and it just makes everything so much easier to understand!!! I love presents, unless you might be giving them to me because I think you might be feeling sorry for me. I am a LOON! Thank you to my husband for clearing up a forty year mystery for me. 🙂

That is all. Go about your day.

  1. Very insightful husband. Although, the hating people feeling sorry for you thing works to your advantage in that I think when you feel that, you work really hard to show people that you are really strong. And thereby get stronger.

    I am glad you are taking a break from working out. That whole tendon can rupture thing had me worried about you because that is all you need is another problem like that.

    I don’t think you are a loon and if you are you are a lovely loon. Are you familiar with the loon’s call? I love hearing loons but we don’t have them here. I started to listen and Leia’s ears perked up. https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Common_Loon/sounds

    And for the record, you are the least whiny person I know.

  2. Loons are a beautiful sound, especially sitting by a fire at a camp on a lake in Maine with no sound by the crackling fire, the crickets and frogs and the loons. It’s so peaceful. Early in the misty morning, out on the lake in a canoe… it’s fabulous. If you’ve never done it, I highly recommend.

  3. That’s so funny, I realized I am like that, too. Why is that – is it kind of like being uncomfortable with a compliment? I dunno, but awkward penguin (I think it’s a meme) is me. Penguins, loons ( autocorrect changes that to LIONS, by the way, which is really interesting), we’re all birds of a feather!

Don’t leave without saying something!
