Michelle tagged me with the ten things that bug me tag. Most of the things on her list would also be on mine, but I told her I'd try to come up with some other ones. Or at least a different way of saying the same thing ;) So here goes!
1.) Cleaning up the same mess ten times in one day. (Emma likes to pull all the kid games off the game shelf and eat the Candy Land cards.)
2.) Stupid people. I don't think there is really anything that bugs me more than stupid people. And by stupid people I mean people who are a.) actually dumb, b.) have no understanding of morals whatsoever, or c.) are in charge of government programs. In some cases, all three of these fit the same stupid people at the same time.
3.) Hollywood and the media. I may be cheating with this because they fall under #2's b, but I guess I am just being a little more specific.
4.) Not getting enough sleep at night. I haven't had a full night's sleep since before I got pregnant with Megan in 2004. That's kind of a long time in my opinion.
5.) Having an eye twitch almost constantly for more than a week (possibly longer, I've lost count of how many days it's been going on). (See #4)
6.) Doing part-time work for a friend who speaks English as a second language and having absolutely no idea what he wants in his website content. Not getting credit for said content, having to sign my emails to his superiors in his name, getting money before I've actually earned it (because it makes me feel like he owns my free time), and being told to find other people who want to help. Um, it's not my website, find your own dang people. And while you're at it, what do you want me to write?
7.) Having people (constantly) tell me a.) I have my hands full and/or b.) look tired, and/or c.) smile. Yes, I have three kids and guess what, I want two more. And guess what else. I'll probably have those two in the next four years. Leave me alone over the number of kids I have. Yes, I look tired, again see #4 and #5. Megan and Jeremy both have night terrors and I have an infant who doesn't yet sleep through the night. Do you think bringing it up will suddenly give me time to sleep, help me sleep better, or help my kids sleep through the night without screaming and crying for half and hour at 3 AM? I didn't think so. And please don't tell me to smile. My face just isn't one of those faces that naturally is in a constant smile. I smile if something makes me laugh, but other than that these lips pretty much stay in the resting position. Don't mention it, m'kay?
8.) People who work in customer service, but have no idea what customer service is.
9.) Fighting kids. (As in kids who are fighting with each other.)
10.) Those stupid cat pictures that say crap like, "I can haz cheezburger?" I hate those.
