Bah Humbug....

Forgive me if I sound like a scrooge, but this week is dragging and I wish it would hurry up and be over with already. I hate to say it, but I have been in a funk the past few days and I can't seem to shake it. I am stressed about work, life, my marriage, whether to move or not and being here with no support system really gets to me sometimes. Work has been a nightmare, and I can't help but be bummed about spending my first Christmas in my entire life away from my whole family. Also the fact that my hubby has duty on Christmas day has really got me down in the dumps. :( I'm gonna try to visit him on the ship but it just won't be the same as having him here and spending the day together in our home, making an amazing dinner and just enjoying our time together. Of course it isn't bad enough that he'll be deployed next year for Christmas but they have to make him have duty this year too.

Sometimes I really hate this lifestyle... I know that I am blessed that my husband has a steady job when so many others don't but its times like these when it feels like things just keep getting worse and worse that I feel like I can't handle this for much longer. I'm definitely not looking forward to the next 3 years of this bull crap! I just want this week to end so I can put Christmas out of my mind, especially since theres no need to celebrate being alone all day.  I can't wait to enjoy a weekend away from the bank, and hopefully having some time to relax will help me cheer up. Customers have been extra cranky and rude all week and they are getting on my last nerve! They all swear that the whole world is out to get them and the old people are the worst!!! I thought customers in retail were rude, but banking is much worse.

So remember when you are out shopping this week, or banking for that matter... BE NICE! A little kindness goes a long way, and there's no sense in being rude and ugly to someone who is helping you, especially when the situation is out of their control. OK, now that I've gotten all that off my chest, I need some ideas for cheering myself up...were pretty broke thanks to Christmas so whatever I decide needs to be cheap, lol! Maybe a mani pedi or a lil trip to the movies with my hubby will do the trick. Either way, I need to figure something out because lately I feel like a big fat Ebeniezier!!! :[



  1. I work in a bank also and I will agree, the customer's can be the worst! I try to look back on all my crazy mean customers with a smile. Like the giant scary dude that cussed me out one time...That was fun =) Just remember, all the crazy stuff that happens to you there makes for great stories and great advice for what not to do. Like having a customer lick their fingers before counting (and during counting) their money and then giving it to you. Oh great! As if money wasn't disgusting enough, please put your saliva on there!

    I am sorry your hubs has to work on Christmas. Maybe you guys can make Christmas Eve big. That's what my hubs and I are doing.

    Good luck with all that is going on. I know that the decisions that you are making and the curve balls life is throwing you are HARD, but just take it one step at a time and everything will fall into place.

  2. i'm not really in the christmas spirit either :(

  3. I'm sorry he has duty on Christmas, they should have assigned one of the guys that were single for that day. We usually celebrate on Christmas eve so maybe you can do it then? I think every military wife feels the same as you from time to time and yes, he has a steady job but you are also sacrificing a lot for him to have that job (like spending time with him and such) but hopefully things will work out and just enjoy the time you do have with him! Try to stay positive =)

  4. That stinks that he has to work on Christmas. I hope you can make the most of it. Turn that frown upside down sunshine.

  5. I can relate. My hubby has duty Christmas day too, he's had it all week, and doesn't turn it over until Monday.

    I completely agree though, people need to be nicer in general. :)

    My husband and I also make Christmas Eve our big tradition time, and Christmas day is fairly uneventful since something always seems to come up (work usually for one or both of us).

  6. My hubs got stuck with duty on Christmas as well. I hope it makes you feel a little better that I will be sitting here in NC, without my family, being a scrooge as well :)

  7. I'm sorry you're having such a rough time this year. I'd be sad if I wasn't spending Christmas with my family too, especially since your hubby has to work (super lame)!

    You should go all out and make Christmas Eve a big thing. Then after you visit him on Christmas day you should curl up on the couch with hot chocolate and watch movies all day.

    I hope you start feeling better about everything soon lady!
