2008, you are officially on notice

WTF 2008? You are so far a total waste of calendar space. I mean, first you give my dad some MORE cancer, and then you won't let any doctors figure out what's wrong with me, and now you tell me that my mom needs her entire hip replaced? Seriously? It's not like we've all been enjoying superb health for years and years and you need to balance it out or some shit. I mean, jeez.

Lay off, that's all I'm saying.

Also, if you want to throw this big familial suffering bullshit at me, you could at least give us a break in the daily life crap. Like don't go giving Brett collegiate administrative red tape to jump through. He needs to be enjoying school and learning and all that good stuff, not dealing with crap that shouldn't be an issue in the first place.

Also, a raise would be nice, and maybe you could magically remove 25 pounds from my problem areas (a.k.a. belly, boobs and butt)

However, all that aside, I'd happily accept a good prognosis for dad, a successful surgery for mom, a diagnosis (with treatment options) for me, and a smooth sail for Brett.

Deal? Please.

Wow. What a crappy January. And here I thought my December was bad. My fingers are crossed for you and your family.

I feel bad bitching about how everyone had such awesome 2007s because I'm noticing a certain Downward Trend in 2008.

So sorry about your mom.

If January is a bad month, then February is sure to be a good one. I'm crossing my fingers for all of you!

Geez, 2008, you ARE big time sucky. I think you should cut Flib a break, here, dude. What's she ever done to YOU?

Hope that next-to-last paragraph of the things you'll accept is what you get.

Artemisia said...

Oh, Flib - this is crap!

I am with JMC; let's all hope for the very best of the current situations. Until then, you all are in my thoughts.

I mean, geez.

I'm so sorry about your crappy 2008 so far :( I really hope it gets better for you.

Um, that really sucks (don't you hate it when people not only state the obvious, but do it with total inadequacy?) and I hope things get better very fast. *hugs for you and your family*

Penny said...

Good luck with your own diagnoses and best wishes for your dad and mom. So sorry 2008 is a bummer so far.

Holy crap, Flib. Everything all at once?? That's just not fair.
Here's hoping it all goes away...
