* First of all...I'm aware of how shallow this post is going to sound. I realize that the world is in turmoil and our economy is in crisis. There are people dealing with illnesses and issues that are serious and I am not going to pretend that my life is difficult or that the things that I am writing about are that big of a deal. I just need to vent for a minute.
I am annoyed....and this is why:
My hair is ridiculous and my hair dresser won't call me back to schedule an appointment. So I have resorted to "baby ponies" as Eden calls them. I know my hair has gotten a lot of attention lately, clearly I'm having issues with it.
I have the most annoying cough EVER! Seriously, it is a dry constant tickle in the back of my throat. It is there during the day but really gets bad at night. I have resorted to vicks on the feet, which totally works for my kids and Aric but not me. I had to sleep in the guest room so Aric could get some sleep.
This is what I see when I look out the window:
That is rain. That is gray skies and no sun. That means I can't run outside. That means I have to run on the treadmill at the gym which I HATE.
Yes I just said hate, and I said it in a very strong way. My kids aren't allowed to say that word but sometimes there is no other word to describe how much you dislike something.
Speaking of the gym I have to cancel my membership because they raised their prices and the instructor that I love is moving and I don't like the classes they are putting in which is very annoying. So I only have thirty days left to go to the gym.
We switched laundry detergent and I am not happy about it. You see I am a Tide girl....original scent, powder, with bleach to be exact. I follow up a good Tide washing with a Downey clean breeze scent dryer sheet. Well Aric saw that Costco had a coupon for Gain original scent...liquid.
It was definitely the better deal so we went for it. And I don't like it one little bit. I hate how the liquid drips...notice the towel underneath it. And it doesn't fit nicely in my cupboard.
Please don't be offended if you use Gain. It's just not my smell. I don't care if other people smell like Gain, I just want to smell like Tide. The first load I did with our new detergent was a load of whites which included under garments....so everyday I get a big whiff of Gain when I get dressed. So until my giant Costco sized Gain is gone I will be annoyed every time I get dressed.
Okay so I know it's spring break but did almost all my friends have to leave or make plans! Don't they know I need their kids for play dates....I need them for play dates! Did they really have to go to California and St. George where it is nice and warm? My friends who didn't leave are extra busy with their lives...except poor Amy so she has to listen to me vent. Sorry Amy.
Could my life be anymore disorganized right now? My house needs a desperate dose of attention that I am not able to give.
Even my purse is a wreck! That is the stuff I dug out this morning while trying to find a coupon for Aric...needless to say it wasn't in there.
Oh and my shoulder blade/back has some major issue going on. My range of motion is limited and it has been that way for a good week now. Aric massages it every night and I have found that a racket ball put in the right place helps too. But I am so tired of that pain that shoots up to my head. I really should get it checked out but I hate how one visit turns into twenty and I really don't need that expense right now.
Let's see is there anything else?....Oh yes, we are still dealing with adoption issues. We aren't any closer to finalizing the adoption than the day we left Charleston. I have spent hours on the phone, on line emailing, faxing, filling out forms, writing letters, etc...and I have nothing to show for it! It's impossible to express how it feels to go to bed every night with this adoption hanging over my head. I know with all my heart that Camden is my son but in the laws eyes he could be taken away at any moment. Enough about that, that is more depressing than annoying...
So that is why I'm annoyed. Stay tuned for a more uplifting post in day or two...
