OT...BUT DANG DH...shut up already - a vent
DH (usually Dear) is good at setting boundries, good at not taking crap from either skids or my kids. He is funny, smart, and extrovert and usually means well.
BUT DANG SHUT UP ALREADY...I'm an introvert. Due to the current COVID situation I have been with DH for a solid 6 weeks. It hasn't been too bad but he is an extrovert with ADHD. Oh lord...the man never shuts up. He talks through movies, yells at me from the other room (very annoying as I have lost 40% of my hearing.), comments on everything. The man will prattle on for hours about nothing.
Right now we have three dogs, one old boxer girl and two 1 year old boxer boys. The dogs are glued to me ALL day long. In, out, in, out, throw the ball, get the ball...bark bark bark. Due the pancreatitis, the dogs get fed 4 small meals a day. So we add 3 doggie feedings a day to my schedule. Where is DH? He is holed up in the office upstairs. Now he is working and he is on calls, I get it. But dang...I feel like I have freaking toddlers again. Things being glued to an introvert no matter how cute..= HELL ON EARTH.
We also have 4 guinea pigs...of course duing freaking pandemic 2020, one guinea pig has ulcered his eye. So in addition to the dogs, I have to put three different meds in a guinea pigs eye every 8 hours. That means I have to get up in the middle of the night to put this in the pigs eye. Do you know how hard it is to put crap in a guinea pigs eye? Its a battle and half.
Our old boxer girl has chronic pancreatitis. So last night apparently she was ralphing and rather than get up, clean up the puke from the floor, DH decides to yell and wake me. SERIOUSLY DUDE, I JUST GOT BACK TO SLEEP. My sleep schedule looks like, go to bed..sleep about 1.5 hours, get up take care of piggie, go back to bed. Sleep another two hours, wakeup to take my medicine (I have no thyroid have to thyroid meds early in the morning)..go back to sleep for 2 hours, wake up to DH feeding the dogs, go back to sleep for another hour. So when he decided to have a hissy fit and wake me up..means I have gotten maybe 3 HOURS of sleep. I'M F*CKING TIRED.
I start work at 7 a.m....and he gets up around 8...the first thing he does...STARTS TALKING. UGH.....dude..leave me be for awhile
So..I'm now tired, frustrated and sick of taking care of the dogs/piggies. I do not want to hear about Trump, covid, your words with friends or whatever else you want to prattle on about.
I blow up..because well NO SLEEP...and DH proceeds to try and give me solutions. ONCE AGAIN SHUT UP. I DIDN'T ASK FOR YOUR ADVICE, I DIDN'T ASK FOR YOU TO FIX ANYTHING......JUST SHUT UP AND LISTEN ...tell me it sucks and I will move on.
BUT FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS HOLY DH...SHUTUP.
