Pet Peeves

Ahh, it's venting time. I love to talk about my pet peeves; I'm not sure why. So if anyone else needs someone to listen while they unload their little irks, bring it. I'd love to hear the silly things that drive you nuts! So here goes!

I'd like to start with PILES of laundry just waiting to be put away.

Those days when I feel like my hair looks like an 80's flashback. It happens.

Wanting so bad to scrapbook...! And yet receiving no inspiration thus leaving my floor covered in supplies while I wait for my muse to guide me.

Music that I can't play no matter how hard I try.

Ugh! The empty roll is like 3 inches away! And get this... I do this to MYSELF. I'm pretty sure it's a true sign of insanity when you are the one driving yourself nuts.

This is a product of wanting hard boiled eggs and only having one clean pot left in the house... the biggest pot ever. (Don't worry mom, the dishes have been done since then)

Walking out to the mailbox only to find... Nuthin'.

Aahh I could go on forever. But I won't otherwise I would probably end up on your list of peeves. So my final pet peeve for today. ;)

This blog's automatic formatting system/all electronic devices at one point or another. GRRR!


  1. I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who runs out of pots... or the only one who drives myself nutso. :) It's like we're related!

  2. You are sp funny! I can honestly say I relate to every one of those peeves, well except for the hard boiled egg one!
    Also, bathroom towels on the floor, directly below the towel rack...

  3. ok, so here's one for you... someone got the cup out of the big cat food dish to pour into the cats eating dish... um, yeah, he sat it right by the eating dish, didn't even pour it in.

  4. My biggest pet peeve is when I call for my husband, he doesn't respond, I call again, no response...even a third time. Then he responds "WHAT?!" And I say, "if you'd just have answered me the first time you wouldn't be bugged that I asked repeatedly and I wouldn't be bugged that I had to ask repeatedly to get your attention." Does this happen to anyone else?

  5. mergans, yes; it's called selective hearing. If you don't think he's heard you he might get out of whatever it is you need him for.

    Instead of calling out to him and waiting, you call, state your need, when you need it done by, and what his reward will be if he is successful.

    I think there's a book out there somewhere... "The proper care and TRAINING of a husband". J/K, haven't actually seen the book. But the selective hearing is very real.

  6. The phrase "I need to tell you something" preceeded by "mom, mom, mom, mom, mom, mom, mom, mom......"

  7. I hear you on the scrapbook thing. Oodles and oodles of supplies and no inspiration when I have some free time.

    Pet peeve for me is finding soda cans left all over the house. Even the one that is sitting right on the counter ABOVE the trash can.

    Oh and a wet towel on my bed. Eewww.

  8. Okay. I'm with you on the wet towel on the bed. Thankfully that doesn't happen to often.

    And how difficult is it to get shoes into the closet? You don't even have to carry them. Just walk them over, open the door, and kick 'em in.
