What really irritates me...

Granted it doesn't take much, but I've give you the top 10.

1. In June of '08, Sass had otoplasty (ears pinned) & since then about every 6 months or so, she gets this growth on the back of her left ear.  It's some sort of inflammation, due to the fact that during her recovery she would wipe off the cream that I applied to the area.  Yes, she is a pain in the arse. From time to time, it would get hit, bleed like crazy & go away.  Then come back.  The pediatrician froze it off close to a year ago. Now it's back.  And Retro wants to take her back to the doctor that did the surgery in Atlanta.  So I'm pissed about that the fact that she didn't do right in the beginning & that the SOB won't go away for good.

2.  I'm also pissed that we have to go to Atlanta to the doctor.  For this AND Baby Girl's pediatric urologist.  We have a perfectly good hospital here, who according to their website is the 2nd largest in Georgia, but nobody does what we seem to need there.  An ENT for Bo we've got, but for the girls nothing. We are very blessed that nothing is seriously wrong with any of our children, just minor things, but I would be in a lot better mood if their doctors weren't 2 hours away.  Plus, it would be more convenient for me to worry them till my girls were fixed.

3. Doctors in general, really.  I don't know what it is, but the only ones I like are my OB/GYN + his partners & the pediatrician + MOST of his partners.  I don't even like dentists.  I don't mean personally, I have a friend who's a doctor & I like her, but I won't become a patient because I'm afraid she'll piss me off.  I guess it's the waiting or the fact that I don't have much control.  If I had a prescription pad & could do surgery I'd be happy.

4. The weather.  I don't like the cold. or the rain.  Snow I can deal with, but only for a day or two.  I like the heat, except for extreme heat, unless I'm by the pool.  maybe I should move to Florida.  or some tropical island, but they have hurricanes.

5. My satellite provider, Dish Network.  And ABC & Fox.  They're are all greedy.  Seriously, how much does it cost to shoot a freaking satellite signal into the sky.  Get it together people or we're switching.

6. The fact that Retro is totally computer illiterate.  Bo is 6 years old & has no problem at all doing all kind of stuff on the computer for hours at a time.  Retro sits down to look at some sports stuff or the Atlanta paper & 5 minutes later he's hollering for me to come fix something.  I keep telling him it's operator error, but yet he doesn't hesitate to wait till I'm settled in bed or interested in a TV show to have me push 1 button & fix it.

7. Lazy children.  I know this is my fault, but my children (especially Sassy) will make themselves a snack or something & leave all the stuff out. Bread open, fixings out of the frig, trash on the counter. Then about half the time Sassy they leave their plate or whatever on the table or in the playroom.  I'm fixing to nib this thing, so if my children start looking really skinny, it's because I've banished them from the kitchen.

8. Laundry.  Well that's pretty much self-explanatory, isn't it.  Both my washer & dryer are both large pieces of crap.  Retro so needs to invest in one of those high-tech washer/dryer combos that I saw on Let's Make a Deal.  If only the thing could iron & fold too, I'd be good to go. 

9. The interior of my SUV.  We live in that thing & it is gross.  I drive a Yukon XL Denali, so from the outside it looks good, just don't open the door.  And it's only a 2008.  I clean the thing out & less than a week later it's trashed again with toys, food, trash, dishes (cups), whatever.  Baby Girl has even written on the seat. (see #10) Saturday I was cleaning it out & all 3 of my children came out to the car, not to help clean up their mess, but to ask me to sign papers, read something & I don't know what Baby Girl wanted.  I (or 1 of the children) will be driving that thing till the wheels fall off.

10. Baby Girl refuses to stay in her carseat.  I have tried everything, short of duct-taping her in; threats, beatings, bribes (that works a little), 2 seat belts. I've even had policemen & firemen talk to her.  She is one stubborn little girl. And off the chain.  I'm thinking about having one of the local police to pull me over & take her to jail.  Think they can book a 4-year-old with a "bad badder" (bladder)?

Oh, one more thing, it's petty but does irritate me, not really when other people say it just me.  The word "kid".  If you'll notice I rarely write the word, I prefer children.  I don't know why because sometimes my children do act like little goats.

Actually I could go on & on, but I've put y'all through enough *bitching & moaning, so I stop here.  Now, where's that Xanax.

Thanks for letting me vent.  I know it's not just me, so what irritates you?

My kids irritate the crap out of me! They are out of school today, right, while I am at work. So I go home at lunch to check on them and ask them if they have eaten. Of course they have eaten some nasty Spaghetti 0's for lunch(I am not much of a cook,either)and left the bowl and spoon in the sink. Never crossed their feeble minds to actually rinse out the bowl or even put an ounce of water in the d!@# thing to let it soak. So, I have got that stinky Chef Boyardee smell and spoons STUCK to the stupid bowls. uuggghhh!!! I proceed to bitch and start cleaning the kitchen, wash a load of clothes, fold a load of clothes, and put a load of clothes in the dryer, clean the toilet from where someone (Scooter) pees on the lid and doesn't bother to wipe it off, make coffee for tomorrow (because my husband acts like it is freakin rocket science) and feed the dogs. My kids are following me around on my freaking "lunch break" and tattling and bitching amongst themselves because I am ignoring them. Then one of the says, "Wow Mom, is this what you do everyday on your lunch break?" and I said "Well yes, I don't know who in the hell ya'll think does it while you are gone to school and your dad to work! This is my lunch everyday!" And my youngest Luke says, "I always thought it was my Magic Elf, Hampton!" That little SOB gets credit for everything! :-)
Love your blog and thanks for letting me vent! Kelly Murphy

Everything irritates me today b/c my boys are out of school. We had enough time off last week, thank you very much.

You always make me laugh- I don't know a mom in the world with a clean car unless she never lets her children in the car. I call mine kiddos most of the time.

I just noticed you have my blog button up...now I feel all warm and cozy inside ahhh...like I just drank a scotch at 3 in the afternoon, though it is officially cocktail hour now...hmmmm
known what pisses me off? my hubs decided that when Brooke needed tubes in her ears the only place that could do it was the place she had open heart surgery...2 1/2 hours away. Yes, they're the best, but it's not a heart now, it's tubes...freakin tubes! And who gets to do all the driving? Me! For a 5 minute surgery and then we have to go for 20 minute office visits...yes all that driving for 20 minutes. Shoot me...then he wonders why I turn him down after a day of that drive? hmmm...

I would hate driving 2 hours for a doctor. I feel you on the mess in your car! My friends leave trash in my car all the time too. It was really bad in high school but is better now that we're all in college and I guess we're actually thinking of stuff now! Hope you had a good week!

My one and only little man can be the biggest pain in my side sometimes and it always involves legos and dinner time or both...He will do homework, clean his room, clean up after himself except picking up the legos and he thinks the kitchen is lego land... He also has food issues ... I believe he is only skinny because he has spit as much food out as he has eaten in his life...
Good luck getting them to pick up that is my super irritation so I started buggy out as soon as he could walk

My spawn (better than the 'k' word?) don't even make their own snacks. The only thing they make is messes and more work for me.

My car, oh how my car irritates me. It's a lost cause... so dirty and it doesn't even look nice on the outside. Currently, one window is kept up with duct tape... people who look at my car, probably think we live like slobs, but my house is actually quite nice.

I know what you mean about the cost of satellite. It's outrageous and frankly, I feel like cable is yanking us around too.

I hope things get resolved quickly for Sass. :(

Laura said...

You crack me up! I bet Baby Girl really would pee her pants if a cop took her to jail! Ha!!

I enjoyed your rantastical rant! Not because you are bothered but just because.

High Heeled Life said...

Hmm... Retro and Mr. G. having something in common with the computer. ~ I loved your post, because I think at some point or other we all can relate to each point. Even those of us without children .. hubby's can be just as guilty of leaving things out on the counter ...and lets not get started on the dishes left in the sink. I hope your day was better and that tomorrow will be much brighter!!xo HHL

Dysfunctional Mom said...

OMG, what doesn't irritate me?
When I get up and everyone else has been up for hours and the dogs have NO water. The kids will ask me at 3pm "what's for breakfast?" when they are old enough to have made something for themselves! I swear I am not making this up. What else....when John shaves and doesn't rinse the sink. The best is when this all happens on the same day!!

Ashlee said...

where do i start? first off, everyone around here (and you know how many people live in my house) thinks clothes magically disappear off the floor, trash magically sweeps itself off the counter, and that the sink is a habitat for dishes. we have a dishwasher -- and I run and empty it regularly! my husband can't get it through his head that i'm a full time student which equates to a job (or more), and i need help around here! my nursing school... ugh. i'm ready to be done. the ENT center. they tick me off regularly. today they canceled B's appt about 45 mins before the scheduled time -- after we were already in perry (that's an hour from our house, and we had no other reason to go) and after we had planned our entire day around that appt. i'll stop there before i lose sleep over all this stuff!

Jessica @ Atl Mom Guide said...

sounds an awful lot like my kids, and my car, and my house...are you me??

Jennifer said...

#9 YES! My car always looks horrible. I'm not even sure how it happens. I throw the garbage away, but it is like it grows on its own or something. And it drives me nuts.

Kate Lewis said...

The static electricity in my hair. That's what irritated me today.

Caution Flag said...

I am highly irritated today with peri-menopause -- and this cluttered house, and my children's schedules, and my paycheck, and ...
