Annoyed ABBA

I know I go through this a lot, but here is my latest list of things that are annoying me:

  • Everything in my closet. I hate my entire wardrobe and changed clothes three times this morning before I decided I didn't look like a complete goob. I still look all schlumpy but that doesn't really matter since nobody actually ever sees me.
  • Hang nails and rough spots on my nails. What causes these?
  • The jerk that sat there, in reverse, and didn't bother to pull out of the parking place until after I had passed, even though I was sitting at a stop sign waiting for him to pull out.
  • The fact that my check engine light came on as I was driving in this morning, even though I just took my car in 2 weeks ago for a complete, factory authorized, 75K mile check up.
  • 90% of the people that I work with.
  • Letting my hair grow out. It is getting to one of those funky stages that I can't really do anything with. It is too short to pull into a barrette; just long enough to tuck behind my ears, except for the bangs; and HUGE. I have giant Texas, the bigger the hair the closer to God, hair going and it is going to be like this until it gets long enough to tame a little better.
  • The lady that I work with who asked me, in front of my whole team, if I would make a quilt for her daughter's school art auction. Did she ask the other co-worker, who paints, for a picture? No. Does she think I can just pull a quilt out of my ear? I don't even like this person, so why would I make a quilt for her daughter to cut down on her private school tuition? I will make quilts for auction for charities that I believe in and I make quilts to give to kids in the Ronald McDonald House or in a homeless shelter, but not for something like a school auction.
  • Wearing a name tag. Okay, actually a name badge, but I still hate it. The thing hangs from my neck and just seems to get in the way, so I take it off and then when I have to go to the restroom, I forget to grab it and then I get locked out of my office.

Between the hair, the clothes, the co-workers, and the badge....maybe I should just start staying home from work more.....

I was tired of complaining about my clothes that this morning I went to the dry cleaners to have things altered. I was so frustrated from being there I left without alterations.

The clothes are going straight to freecycle, and I still have nothing.

Aww I thought you looked really pretty today because the color sweater you are wearing really pops out and makes you look all bright.. thats why i called you "sunshine" when i saw you. And I thought your hair looked good. Your too critical of yourself sweetie. Thought thats annoying about someone asking you to make a quilt for a school auction.

staying home isn't all it's cracked up to be. Working a full-time job would just completely throw our home-life overboard and into a MUCH BIGGER tailspin than I'm already in, but I swear, I dream of working a 40 hour job doing anything just so that it would get me away from the mind-numbing monotony and hypertension-causing aggravation of my children.

....yeah, this month has been a bottomless pit of aggravation. I'm sure my attitude doesn't reflect that at all.

Paula - I don't think the negative attitude has been showing, much.

And I have to think that if I worked from home every day, then I would become a disgusting hermit and would lose all sense of social interaction....And I couldn't stalk the guy in my office that I have a little crush on.

HA HA HA!! you ALWAYS make me laugh!! I am in 100% FULL agreement with the clothes issue.....not only do I have NOTHING to wear but my half of the closet is a mess. I will probably address this in a 'hopeful' blog today

This may be the funniest thing I have read on the blogs all year!
