Please indulge me while I whine.

Here's what would help with the yelling, the nos, the loneliness, the crabbiness, the anger, and all the rest: Having my husband back.

I can get all the help and all the breaks in the world, but there's nothing anyone can do for me that is the equivalent of having a partner in this life. And while no marriage is perfect and having a partner is not all wine and roses, John is what I'm missing, and that, my friends, is the root of all of the nastiness.

Your daily whine, courtesy of snickollet. Regular programming will return tomorrow.

That's all you've got for whining? That's a very short entry for a very hugely sucky thing that you've got going on. Which is to say, go ahead and whine if you've got to, any time.

Blogs are for whining. Go to it. It makes me feel better to whine. I actually said "whine, whine, whine, complain, complain, complain" the other day. It made me feel better.

i think it's more than normal to be whining. i can't even imagine what it's like to be going through what you're dealing with... you are more than entitled to whining or complaining or crying or anything else that might release at least some of your frustration.

whine or no whine, your blog entries are still so entertaining. Do you have a flickr page of photo's of the twins that you update?
Be strong, and remember they won't be 2 for ever.

That is not whining. That is sharing and be honest - and being a Normal Human Being. You have been so strong through everything. By sharing your life with us, you help us (or at least me) be stronger in the challenges we (I) face. I think you need to be a bit easier on yourself. You are doing a great job with those kids.

Whine away, Snick, whine away. You're absolutely right.

(((hugs)))

Whine all you want. We are here to listen. I wish you weren't going through this.

lct said...

That's not whining; that's honesty and real emotion. You're entitled to that, and there's no need to apologize for expressing your feelings around such deep loss.

Cari said...

Complain all you want -- you have every right too. *hugs from a stranger*

Tiffany said...

You are SOOO strong for what you are going. I could not image being a single mom. Keep at it, it will get better - just give it time. All of our thoughts are with you.

Oh my god, that's so not really even whining. I have a two mom household (which I deem to be pretty darn equal parenting) and two year old twin girls and we yell way lots (not happy 'bout that and working on it).

Could it be a sign of you healing a little bit? What I mean, is that yelling is "normal" and not yelling would mean that you weren't feeling enough to get sideways by just having two two year olds to deal with.

You are a MF saint and can whine here any time you want.

I know, and I am sorry..

Veronica said...

(((hugs)))

Sometimes life sucks and that sucks. I am so sorry.

Julia said...

Of course it would. And of course nothing else even comes close. I am sorry.

Yankee T said...

Aw, Snick, I'm still (again?) so sorry.

Jolene said...

You go ahead and whine all you want and anytime you want. I want more than anything to bring John back to you...and I don't even know you. But you make me realize not to take my husband for granted. Thank you for that. I'm so sorry...everyday...that you have to go through this.

Momma Mary said...

You have more right to complain than the 99% or people who do it. That didn't sound like whining to me either, it sounded like the truth. It sucks being a single parent. It really truly does. Your situation pretty much sucks. I feel for you, and hope that things get just a teeny bit easier for you. (((hugs)))

OTRgirl said...

Hmm...I would have to say that's a highly valid excuse.

Sigh.

Ellen said...

The twins are 2 year olds? When did that happen? Congratulations!

django's mommy said...

I feel your pain (minus one child). It totally bites. I'm sorry.

I am thinking of you. I wish there was something I could do to make this easier but what is there? No-one can take his place. My heart aches for you

terri c said...

I am chiming in way late here, but I have to agree with the others... Ahhhh, Snick, you are so NOT whining. Whining is what you see on reality TV. You are being honest and thank you for that. It sucks that John is not there.
