Truthful Tuesday: EFF YOU Tuesday, I heart you!

by Deborah Cruz

I am not a passive person, so when life is holding my happiness hostage and  hurling lemons at my head …I rant , rave and buck crazy. Today is one of those days and I really need to work through this frustration so I am going to list all of my grievances here, to get them off my shoulders ( so my head doesn’t explode)! If you don’t go for that sort of thing..stop now. Look away! I don’t want a post full of rage and anger so I am going to substitute the word “heart” for “hate” all throughout this post. You know in the spirit of turning my God damn (sorry but its just that frigging serious) frown upside down and all that shit! So be prepared, and feel free to expunge yourself here after I have finished my tirade! Happy Mothering my fellow POW’s!

  • I heart my husband being gone and me being alone!
  • I heart that my kids are acting like complete uncontrollable maniacs!
  • I heart that I am losing my cool and can’t handle it all.
  • I heart stupid ass people.
  • I heart waiting on others,for example, the people who interviewed my husband about a new job. I can not stand placing my forever in someone else’s power (its the impatient control freak in me).
  • I heart feeling fat.
  • I heart exercise, even more!
  • I heart never getting to see my friends.
  • I heart that we moved and moved back with not much say in it.
  • I heart that I got to see how my life could be only to have it taken away!
  • I heart that that bothers me so much.
  • I heart feeling envious of anyone.
  • I heart that bad things happen to good people; for example, good people dying young or little babies getting cancer.
  • I heart complainers; so I am hearting myself right now, a little bit!
  • I heart people who don’t know me at all pushing their unsolicited opinions on how I am suppose to feel (I’m referring to people in real life who don’t know me, have never read me, and don’t care about who I am or how I feel not y’all. You people get me!).Thanks..I  really need other people to tell me what I am supposed to feel when they have never taken 1 step in my shoes.
  • I heart perpetual cleaning! Seriously, is it impossible for a house with children in it to stay the least bit lean?
  • I heart all the dog shit in my backyard…Dog, can you please stop shitting so much? Don’t I have enough asses to wipe inside the house?
  • I heart being broke! It’s fabulous and I wouldn’t trade it for the world. It’s so awesome having to decide what to do with that extra $10 in your account..I’m voting for cheap wine!
  • I heart finally knowing what I want out of life and having to depend on others  to achieve it.
  • I heart feeling old on days like this.
  • I heart feeling like such a shitty Mom, and not having enough hours in the day to do better!
  • Mostly, I heart that I just broke down in front of all of you. Now that I’ve shattered your image of calm, cool, collected me, please feel welcome to share what you heart today!

Well I LOVE you! I think it's great that you vented, and…is it wrong that I'm sorely tempted to steal your idea and do the same thing on my blog? Love the way you substituted "hate" with "heart." I would have used the word "hate" and a few expletives to boot, but then the calm, lovely people wouldn't like me very much.
Oh, and I'm sorry your dog shits so much. I feel for ya sista, shitty asses all around suck!
Take care, feel better, and post more 'cause we don't "heart" your blog, we damn right LOVE IT!

I second the cheap wine. Go to Trader Joe's and you can stretch that $10 to two bottles. Then I vote for putting the kids to bed (sure it's only 4 p.m., what the heck. They can't tell time, can they?) and getting into the bath with your glass of wine and a good book, and remembering that you are fantastic mom, wife, writer and friend, and you deserve to take a little you time! Big hugs. You are my hero.

Hi! I'm your newest follower from FMBT!!! 🙂 I'm enjoying your blog and especially appreciate your openness in this post. I have 6 kids and sure do know what it's like to feel like I'm never doing a good enough job. Trying to keep a clean house with kids in it is like trying to shovel snow during a snowstorm. I probably hate exercising more than you. I would get rid of the dog. 🙂

Hope you'll come visit me soon and follow back.
Lisa xoxo
