Saturday - Birthday Weekend Mood Swings

Day two of the birthday weekend. My birthday is tomorrow. Husband had to go away for business so it's just me and the kids.
I went to my neighbor's massive party and it is awesome over there, but nerve wracking for me to try to keep both little kids (girl, 6, boy 3 and a little OCD) out of trouble. Daughter enjoyed the giant inflatable waterslide, and both kids jumped around on the big bouncy jousting thing when the bigger kids weren't using it, heck I jumped around with them too, and the live band is kickass, but I could not sit and eat or drink anything due ot he need to chase the kids - there's like over 100 people there and the crowd is growing and I don't want to lose sight of my babies, so we came back home after my little boy threw a tantrum when the big kids wanted the jousting ring back, and then I went quickly back once the kids were indoors to grab some take out cotton candy & snow cones to make everyone stop crying.

Between tantrums (there's, OK, maybe mine a little too)  I've been teaching the children to appreciate  good music. The three year old can now sing the chorus to Rock the Casbah by The Clash, which is posted HERE. Then the kids started talking about the three little pigs, so I played them some of this and taught them to do the chorus:

That was fun, but they are back to being moody and I am really hoping that husband comes back soon, I even did something I rarely do if nothing is on fire and nobody's bleeding, I called him and asked him to come home, because I am getting cranky.

There is a big open field at the front of our property, and we let the neighbor's guest use it for parking every year when he does his blowout shindigs, but a little while ago someone parked on my front freaking lawn instead of in the big freaking field and that annoys me. Then they started coming to the top of my driveway and attempting to park in the back of my house - NOT COOL. I've got little kids and pets and I don't want partiers all up on top of us here. My house is about a quarter mile from the road and there is still plenty of room in the front field, these people do not need to be on my damned lawn or on top of my house!

Yesterday I was in a bad mood before I decided to post something fun, but here's what I had originally started to write last night and those feelings are back again...

I can kind of identify with the feelings expressed in this video:

I am cranky. Now don't worry, I'm not about to go mashing stuff up, but I understand what it feels like to want to.

I suffer from SDDTB - Situational Depression Due To Brokeness. Most days I can stuff it down into a dark little ball of anxiety and cram it into some little corner of my head. I also suffer from birthday related malaise due to the long chain of crappy things that tend to have happened to me on or very close to my birthday, like that thing that happened 20 years ago , nearly to the day that I wrote about HERE. These two conditions are generally temporary, one is easily remedied by momentary periods of not being broke, the other only comes once a year. Separately they are manageable, but together, well, let me just apologize in advance for any excessive crankiness if it is not directed at those who deserve it such as islamonazis and leftists for the next few days.

At least I am not alone in the first malady, Stacy McCain appears to have been dealing with a bout of SDDTB lately too. Put the two disorders together at the same time, and you get a moody, cranky Zilla. Of course there is a treatment, and that is, as Stacy says, for folks to "hit the freaking tip jar", which also happens to be a great way to wish a girl a happy Birthday and may help thwart the second condition by enabling me to buy some things, like food, or a new briefcase like the one on my wish list.

I think maybe I may also have a lil green monster in my head, there are hundreds of people parking in my front yard for somebody else's birthday party while I am home alone with the kids and they are moody too. My little girl wants to go back to the party, but I can't go back there with my son unless I have another grown up - it's just too much. Husband was surprised to hear from me, I told him that I hope he'll talk tot he neighbors because I have a problem with being seen as being a total bitch when I am not trying to be one, something to do with the Long Island Noo Yawka accent, perhaps. I did ask one person to refrain from joining the other cars on my front freaking lawn, and when somehow it slipped out that this is my birthday weekend, it was all I could do to not bawl in front of these people. Birthday's are hard, being broke is hard, the two put together and me home alone with cranky little people while depression decides to rear it's ugly head just sucks.

Thank you to all of you nice people who have wished me a happy birthday on Twitter and in my comments thread HERE, it really means a lot to me!The band is really awesome, even in my house with the windows closed & AC on, I can hear them, they are playing Led Zeppelin right now and doing a great job of it!

Zep always cheers me up, and husband will be home soon, hopefully my mood will swing back the other way soon. I'm generally a pretty stable person, but like I said, it's a double whammy of buzz kills right now. I'll be back to normal on Monday, going after the CRAPTASTICs, the jihadis and their treasonous enablers like I always do. If yo haven't already shut down your browser tab on this page in disgust, I thank you for letting me ventilate, it does help ya know. Sorry to be such a weirdo, hope ya still respect me in the morning.

Anyway, here's some music, I hope you like it as much as I do:

Led Zeppelin - In my Time of Dying

Led Zeppelin - When The Levee Breaks

Led Zeppelin - The Rain Song

Yep, Zep always makes me feel better, all of you do too. Husband just got home, and then left to go to the party by himself for a little while. I was hoping he'd take daughter over, but he wants to eat, so I'll take her when he comes back, he can stay with the boy who will hopefully be going to sleep soon since he stayed up late and has been awake since 5 am (which might have something to do with my moodiness as I can't sleep when he doesn't sleep). I want to go and see the band and eat some food and pretend that the party is really for me, daughter wants to eat and enjoy the giant water slide, bouncy stuff and pool. She's good, if it's just me & her I can relax so long as she is in eye-shot.  Since I began this post, the people have moved off my damned front lawn. Now if the kids would stop their whining, it'll all be gravy! Have a great night, y'all, thanks for stopping by.

Rant on girl. I`ll listen to every word.

Thanks, SPG! Yesterday was rough, but eventually I got to take my daughter back to the party and was able to relax & eat and everybody loved how cute and friendly she is. She's the type of kid you want to take with you to social events, quite the little schmoozer, she. With the males left at home, we could enjoy ourselves a bit, she swam, I ate. Then when we got back the boys were sleeping so I did my mom chores and daughter was a good girl about getting ready for bed and then my big furry cat who usually sleeps with husband decided to be MY cuddle buddy (I still have a hard time sleeping without my Tippy and still leave tears on my pillow often) so the day ended well. But my empty tip jar is still mocking me with its cobwebs. Oh well. Times are tough all over. Freaking Obama, he sucks so bad and is making everyone suffer for  his piss poor performance, even as he enjoys luxuries beyond what most of us can even imagine.

I am delighted with all the great stuff your snails sent, I can 't thank you enough!

Forget it all and get out and have a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Zilla of the Resistance said...

Thanks, mRed! But with no money, no car & no baby sitter, I'll be home and online all day, most likely. My 3 year old saw a picture of a cake that somebody posted on my facebook wall and said, "Happy Birthday!" which made me smile. That's likely the only cake I'll be seeing today. Aside from the kids (daughter made cards to give me) and my mom, nobody out here in real life cares about my birthday. I should be used to it, but depression is a bitch. At least I have my friends in my computer though! Thank God for you guys!

(((huggles))) I'm glad your day got better... I hope today is wonderful in it's own way...

Zilla of the Resistance said...

Thanks, Tammy, I don't want to get my hopes up. If I get through the day without a nervous breakdown then it will be a good day.

Zilla! As I write this, Mrs Webworker is packing gifts for my cousin, as it's her birthday, too, yeah, gonna have a good time. We're about to head down to my 91yo Mom's for a swim, and take the edge off this 100-every-day, won't-go-below-80 weather. Jul 17, the only day of the year that my calendar has 4 relatives'-or-in-laws' birthdays, 2 on her side, 2 on mine. (No room in the little box to add yours, so be sure to remind us again next year.) Have a Slappy Flappy Snappy Cra... uh.. Happy Birthday! And enjoy the moods. You've earned every one of 'em! :Don

Thank you, AMW! It sounds like you've got a full plate of family fun in front of you!

My neighbor and I were talking in his driveway one day when half of the couple who rented his garage apartment got home from work. We talked for a few minutes, laughing and enjoying the moment when her boyfriend arrived. He immediately went into griping about his day, lots of stuff off the wall, but nothing to her. She apparently had had enough of his regular failure to greet her properly and told him so ! I immediately decided to demonstrate for him and went, "Hey Honey, how was your day ?" It got a good snicker. To this day, 13ish yrs later, anytime, anywhere I see her, I greet with a loud, "Hey Honey, how was your day !" I like her smile and the puzzled looks on other`s faces. Little stuff ! ;-)

If memory serves me correctly, my last birthday cake wasn`t actually a cake, but it was a delicious concoction made by my last girlfriend, in `94. She was a fabulous cook !

My Sister sometimes remembers to send me a card and my ins. agent gives me a coupon for a free soft drink at a local sammich shoppe. That`s about as good as it gets.

Your BD is in my ph. calendar and maybe my Christmas snails will bring you what I was really looking for for your Birfday. You are not alone or forgotten and things will get better....count on it !

When is your birthday?


SignPainterGuy said...

First, it`s St. Patty`s Day, then mine and 2 days later SPRING !! 1:05 or 7:05am, the Doc. was careless writing the time on the BC, which BTW, is on record for anyone to see in my county seat. The next day was the coldest day of that winter and since Dad couldn`t leave work, the town baker, close family friend, brought Mom and me home. (He told me that at my Dad`s funeral when I asked if he remembered me !) He looked for the world like Col. Sanders ! Maybe a "little" rounder ! ;-)

Wednesday (who`s child is full of woe), 1953.

Zilla of the Resistance said...

Dually noted. I don't drink so this half mick won't be too hungover to wish you a happy birthday!

SignPainterGuy said...

Kay ! I`ll hold you to it ! ;-)
