I've been debating whether or not to start participating in memes, but one where I can go on a rant seems like a great place to start!
Complaint #1: Finally officially diagnosed as underactive thyroid a few weeks ago and started on Synthroid (artificial thyroid hormones). Felt GREAT for the first week or so, but it's like my body has reset the thermostat and stopped producing it's own. So I'm back to feelin' crappy!!! So body, WAKEY WAKEY!
Complaint #2: Dear kids - Please go to bed and a reasonable hour and stay asleep in bed until a reasonable hour. Staying up with mommy until midnight because your stomach mysteriously hurts cannot become a habit, nor can waking up and expecting mommy to be functional before 7 AM (see complaint #1 for why mommy extra can't handle the lack of sleep).
Complaint #3: I don't know about other schools, but to the parents of children who's kids attend public school and are NOT the class moms: Please contribute lots of money when the hat is being passed in the beginning of the year. The other class mom and I easily spent twice what the other parents gave us, and many gave NOTHING. But, we're still expected to throw three class parties on this budget, not including the end of the year party which was essentially on our own dime. It sounds from friends like we just got a sucky set of parents, but yeesh!
That's enough for today -- How about you???
