I won't go into all the details, as there are countless things and I don't want everyone to know what I'm getting mad about (super embarrassing). Even the things I used to let go... are driving me nuts!
I was exercising at the gym last week enjoying the feeling of my muscles ache when a woman sat down on the machine next to me. Before starting to lift weights she said to me, "You really need to be wiping down the machines after you use them." Now let me add, she said that is a condescending way with a look of "you're an idiot" on her face. Am I exaggerating? Ok, maybe a little but that's exactly how I heard and saw it, and she really was rude about it. I looked at her and didn't say a word but instead thought of what a moron she was. After finishing with my machine I got up and started using another one without wiping it down. I'm not sure why I did that (feeling a little defiant I suppose), but I did and once she realized I hadn't wiped that machine down either, she about had a heart attack and practically yelled over to me, "Um you didn't wipe that machine off either lady! You better wipe your machine off now." To avoid making a scene, I left my weights and cleaned off both machines. From that moment on it PAINED me to wipe off each machine I used. I felt as if she had won and no one likes to be a loser. NOTE: I never wipe down the machines because I truly believe it is a waste of time. PS lady, you're at the gym. People sweat here and it smells. Go home and take a shower.
Each time I thought of this small incident throughout the day, I fumed. I kept telling myself I did the right thing (minus not cleaning the machine down the first time she asked), but I couldn't help thinking of all the nasty things I should have said to her. Why did I let that bother me so much? Because I'm pregnant. I'm sure had I not been pregnant I would have apologized profusely and cleaned down whatever she wanted.
This is only one example of many in my life lately. Nothing serious but that doesn't seem to matter to me. I wish I could stop things from bugging me, but it seems impossible. Last night I tossed and turned over something that had been on my mind that shouldn't have been a big deal, but felt like a huge obstacle.
Please tell me I'm not the only one! Am I going crazy or is the semi normal? I don't remember it being this bad with my last pregnancy. I'd love to hear your crazy pregnancy stories if you have any to share!
Seriously, please tell me.
