#27 Unappreciated


I don't normally complain. I accept things to be as they are. Today I feel that I can not do that. It is Easter Sunday. I was expecting to have a glorious day because I got my son and Husband a great gift. There was talk around town for the past 2 weeks about Big Foot the monster truck coming to our town. My hubby and son wanted to go but because we live from payday to payday it makes it hard to afford the little extras.

They wanted to go so bad and I hated seeing that they couldn't go. I hide money here and cut corners there but I got them V.I.P. tickets. I was expecting them to come home def Saturday night because they were only twelve rows away. I got no thank you, I got no Happy Easter Honey or Happy Easter Mom. All I heard were complaints about how it was not what they expected and they wished it would have lasted longer.

I made Chicken-n-noodles and mashed potatoes for dinner tonight, one of their favorites, I thought it would make a good Easter Dinner. I got no, dinner was good or thanks for cooking. All I wanted was just 1 single carnation. I had left hints all week that I wanted one. I didn't even get that.

Maybe I am just complaining because my feelings were hurt and I am starting to feel taken for granted. Then I think maybe I should get mad and stick my foot in their hind quarters. Anyone one who knows me, knows I will not do that, so I will sit here and cry and feel unwanted. I will be Happy again tomorrow because that is just how I am.

In order to be able to achieve and maintain happiness we need to, actively, be able to do two things:
1. Complain and then let go (Dump the baggage, the roadblocks to happiness.)
2. Express Gratitude (The open expression of gratitude promotes happiness.)

^Wise words by Mel

The first site is:

Comlpain,Complain, Complain
This site gives you someplace to go to complain and get things off your chest. I did it and it felt good.

I was feeling upset Sunday so I decided to visit his complaint site and leave a complaint. I am complaint # 27 Unappreciated.

The second site is:

Are You Grateful?
This site gives you someplace to go to talk about all the things in your life that you are grateful for.

*Start Copy*
After all everyone has something to be grateful for and/or something to complain about. If you would like to share, please follow the appropriate link and do so: "Are You Grateful?", "Complain Complain Complain."

Hi Sindi,

I appreciate the plugs, but this post should be about you, with my sites as an afterthought. You should post your actual complaint between the picture and information about my sites. I am looking at my sites as a catalyst to express complaints or gratitude, not the focus.

I will have to agree with power.
It's kind of rude of them not to think of you. but then again I under stand were your coming from by feeling unappreciated because I made a good breakfest and dinner and did not get a thank you from anyone.

Sorry to hear about this, Sindi. Maybe you should let your hubby and son know about this? You can ask them that it'll make you feel appreciated to hear a word of thank you every now and then?

HUGS!!!!!
