The last couple of weeks have been filled with irritations!
Joey is gone for a month.
Usually, for safety reasons, I keep that info to myself until he gets back.
But right now no crook or con man in his right mind would come snooping around this house! I am a woman on the edge! I am in the ultimate 'don't mess with me' mode!
It's not so much being without Joe. That stinks, but we've learned to cope. It's just a month this time. We can do that in our sleep!
It's all the crap that keeps happening this time that's got me seething!
And it doesn't matter if the problem is big or small - it's cumulative. And we are fast approaching that proverbial last straw!
The dog misses Joe, so of course, he poops on one of his army bags - twice. And shatters a plate by knocking it off the counter. And tears up the mini blinds. . . Stupid dog.
As I mentioned last post, we're buying a new bed. Found the one we wanted and was told delivery would be 1 to 10 days. Now they have my money and say 4 to 6 weeks!
(Great. I guess we'll flip a coin to see which visiting family member gets to sleep on the floor this Thanksgiving!)
Ordered a new comforter, shams and curtains to go with the bed. I received one box - no shams, no curtains, and the comforter is the wrong color!
Out running errands today and went through
Mc Donald's for lunch. Girls got burgers, I got a salad. Got half way across town before our next stop, where we discovered they had neglected to put the salad in the bag.
Opened the fridge to get a drink. Water poured out onto the floor! The shelves were all wet and the crisper drawers each had about an inch of water in them.
Maddie requested chicken and dumplings for dinner the other night. Started cooking before realizing we had no chicken!
Started painting Shelby's room. Finished all but a little three foot spot. Had to stop and put everything away, go back to the store and buy another can of paint.
Thought I'd be smart about the painting thing, so while we were at the store I bought another quart of Maddie's color to make sure we'd have enough. Her room didn't even use a whole gallon! The rooms are almost the same size - what's up with that!!
The brakes are going out on my car.
Came home the other night and opened the garage door. Somehow the trash can had rolled against the inside of the door and the lip around the top got caught on the grooves of the door. Up went the door - along with the trash can. It dangled there a minute before crashing to the ground. (OK, so that one was a little funny, but still, no one likes picking up garbage.)
Missed the trash truck - twice.
XM radio, for some strange reason, deducted three payments this month! Yeah, just try getting them on the phone.
Well, that's a short list of a few things making me crazy! I'm gonna leave it there because I need a quiet moment.
And a Dr. Pepper.
And some chocolate.
And a bubble bath. . .
