I can't stand it when I make simple stupid mistakes. Like this morning for instance. I was so proud of myself for getting us out the door on time (we had a two hour drive to see my sister and get our hair done), but then...I was happy, singing and all of a sudden driving… Continue reading Mistakes
It is always the same, but asked in different ways. ~ How are you? ~ How's it going? ~ How do you do? ~ How's your day? ~ Why do people ask questions like this? The majority of the time they don't care or want an honest answer. Most people are just asking to be… Continue reading That damn question.
All I want for Christmas is time with those I love without the pressure and obligation of gifts. Holidays. Business. Marketing. Things. Expectations. Pressure. Don't get me wrong, I love giving people gifts. It makes me feel good to see them smile. However, when it is expected all of the joy of giving is lost.… Continue reading Tis the Season for Stress
I am so sick and tired of hearing people 'yell' at their dog by saying their name. Their name does not mean No, Stop, Knock It Off or anything else. It is simply their name.

Today I have been overcome by irritation. I am annoyed. This person is someone who values appearance and perception more than honesty and integrity. While spending the afternoon with at a gathering this person continued to talk over people, interrupt and correct them. It has always been this way, but some days I have a… Continue reading Not My Choice via Samsung Galaxy
Scarier than the Sixth-Sense... Why is it that parents are needed ONLY at the most inopportune times? My husband and I can easily be doing nothing or at least nothing of importance. However, the second either one of us needs to cook, take a call or use the restroom - BOOM - it happens. Out… Continue reading The Kid-Sense
Punctuality is important - IMPORTANT! It is a sign of respect. It shows others that you value their time. It is something that I don't think a lot of people recognize as being more than "on time." I cannot stand when people make me wait for more than 5 or 10 minutes. Tardiness is not… Continue reading Punctuality Pet Peeves
I hate it when you smack a mosquito that has landed on you and is nibbling on your skin. Then SPLAT you have blood all over your hand! Damn Bloodsuckers...
