Do you ever get really bothered by certain things? You know things that really aren't a big deal but still irk you just the same? Well, lately I have and they've been building up so I've decided to use this blog as a way to clear my head and let off some steam. So with that said here I go! Things that bother me.........(in no particular order)


Pillsbury biscuits bother me.
-Every time I have to unwrap that evil cylinder and wait for it to decide when it wants to explode and pop open makes me so mad! I hate it. It is never predictable and I get all flustered and nervous every time. I feel like it controls me when shouldn't it be the other way around??? There has to be a more simple way to get those dang biscuits out of that dumb container then having it burst open like that. Why haven't they come up something? Anything? Why??? Gah.......absolutely horrible!

Leaf blowers bother me.
-It feels like everyday during Sam's nap time a sweet man turns on his leaf blower to clean up our courtyard and it ALWAYS wakes up Sam. (This leaf blower sounds like a vacuum on steroids) You would think it would only take a few minutes to blow these leaves away (leaves which don't even exist because it is March) but no it is an hour plus ordeal. It takes all my restraint not to run and lash out all my anger on this poor man. If I ever find myself alone with that leaf blower though I can't make any promises of what I will or wont do.....

My back bothers me.
-So I've had no problems with my back for years now and just when I am about to dance again for the first time it totally starts acting up again just like it did before it totally gave out on me.  I've been so excited to perform in this little show and now I feel terrified all over again. I just want to do my best and give it my all :) I hate feeling old. I hope it will hold up and all will go well!

Cold texting bothers me.
-Ok so let me explain....when I send out a text it usually looks something like this.....-Hey! Are you coming tonight? Let me know :) - Pretty upbeat and friendly right? So what am I to think when I get a response like this......-No. We are busy. - Super scary huh?!? I'm sorry but I hate periods. They just seem so cold. How hard is it to do an exclamation point instead? You are still hitting a button so you might as well hit a happy one right?!? Kevin used to be this way and now his texts are full of smiley faces and exclamation points and it is wonderful. If he can change so can you! Give it a happy! (Now I'm sure all of you are wondering if it is you that I am talking about and if you have to ask yourself that question then it definitely is not you!!! Please text me the same way you always have been! I have a feeling I'm going to get a lot of extremely happy texts now....hehe!) 

And lastly, Nightmares bother me.
-I feel like every dream I have lately is a nightmare. They are so scary and they almost always include Sam and I wish I could stop them. Some people can control their dreams. I am not one of those people. I know that I live life very cautiously and that I have a lot of......hmmm what is the right word I am looking for.........stress? Fears? Anxieties? Well anyways, I do and I guess my subconscious is pretty weak to those. Hopefully they will stop soon and I can dream about pixystix and flying and doing a million pirouettes perfectly! Oh and maybe I should stop reading The Hunger Games before I go to bed ;) Lol.

PHEW! Man do I feel better! It feels good getting that all off of my chest. Sorry for the crazy ranting....I am generally a happy and carefree person ;) It's a beautiful day outside and there are no leaf blowers within an ears reach so I guess that's something worth celebrating!!!

Uno Mas???

So you know how you have certain qualities that are a little quirky and kind of weird? Well, they don't really seem to be much of a big deal or too bothersome until you see those traits in your own child. For those of you who know me you know that I have a very addictive personality. Me and my sister have always said that it is a good thing that we don't drink or do drugs because we would be hardcore addicts. Luckily I have been addicted to pretty harmless stuff in my life. Here are some examples.......

 *From sophmore to senior year it was watching You've got mail every night before I went to bed.
 *My college years I couldn't stop eating liquorish......seriously couldn't stop.....ate it every day.
 *Every night I have to do my little pilates routine before I go to bed or I can't sleep because I feel guilty.
 *The Office....this is an on going battle....I love The Office and I re-watch all the seasons all the time.
 *And right now I'm addicted to cookies. They just sound good all the time! Gah! (I'm still on the lookout for those stinkin girl scouts!!!)

So looking at this list makes me think that I may have a little obsessive compulsive disorder in me as well as an addictive personality....??? Hmmmm......well anyways, (lets focus on one problem at a time) I think you catch my drift :) So lately Sam has a new thing that he absolutely LOVES and it is all he wants to do ALL THE TIME. We have a t.v. at the foot of our bed so Sam will crawl up and get the remote control and turn the t.v. on and wallah! What comes on?!? Something he loves even more then me............


MEGAMIND. He is obsessed! He loves the opening scene where it shows Megamind as a baby and him growing up. He wants to watch it over and over and over again. I keep thinking he will get bored of it, but it is only getting worse! Help! I'm not sure what to do....I totally understand because I do the same thing, but at the same time I can still function and don't throw tantrums if I'm not watching it. Sheesh! What am I to do? This poor boy has my weird disorder and I don't know how to help him. I guess I should go to Kevin with this problem, after all he has dealt with it for the past 5+ yrs so maybe he has a little insight ;) If anyone else has any advice it would be much appreciated!
