So here is my ranting post, because it's my blog and I can rant if I want to. haha.
Things That Completely Irk Me Lately
Spring Forward. I blame my need to rant mostly on this. I hate Spring Forward. I'm perfectly fine with keeping Daylight Savings Time all year around. Let's stop the madness of Spring-ing Forward and Fall-ing Back. It just makes me very grouchy in the spring.
Lingo like "totes" for totally, "cray cray" for crazy, "adorbs" for adorable, and more. You're typing on a computer or phone keyboard. It's not that much more effort to spell out the actual word. If you're not a court reporter, stop trying to use shorthand. If you think it's "cool" and "hip", remember, at one point bangs that were 4 inches high were cool and hip, and you wouldn't want to have that now, now would you?
The wind. I've gotten used to the fact that here in West Texas, it's really windy. But I'm bummed that the days I want to work outside, or go to a baseball game, it's extremely windy. Sometimes to the point of a dust storm. But even if there's not a dust storm, I can't take BB outside in that mess or he'll be wheezing terribly in no time. :( So come on wind, let us play outside a little bit.
Paying the mortgage on a house we haven't lived in in 8 months. Seriously. The house needs to sell SOON! I'd like to keep that extra money each month to do other things. Like getting out of debt. Going on an actual vacation with my husband. Fact: Joey and I have never been on a vacation or weekend getaway together. Not even a honeymoon. Fact: I have a long list of places for us to go and things for us to do . Fact: We can't do those things until that house sells.
Various pregnancy pictures on facebook. Stop. Before some of you get mad, keep reading, because some pictures are okay. But, I don't want to see your pregnancy test stick. You've pee'd on that thing. There are other ways of posting the great news. Save that picture for the scrapbook only. Also, I don't want to see your bare belly. I love pregnancy pictures, but I want you to be fully clothed. And not taking a picture of yourself in the bathroom mirror. There's also a possibility that this irks me because 1) the age and background of some of these ladies/girls and 2) I haven't been pregnant before and therefore do not understand. It's possible.
Okay, so life isn't all bad and there are some things that I'm excited about.
Things That I'm Excited About:
(catchy title huh?)
This afternoon I'll be driving to Hobbs, NM, for dinner with my friend Sharilyn! I'm pretty excited about that... it's been way too long! Also, I went to find a picture of us and there's not one. This is terrible. I will fix that tonight!
Wednesday, I'm driving to Oklahoma City for work stuff. I'll be driving all day Wednesday, working Thursday and Friday, and driving back home on Saturday. But the good news is I'll get to spend some time with these girls:
And we are (hopefully) going to The Cheesecake Factory and Anthropologie. Two places I've never been before. I'm pretty excited!!
I finally got Joey's office about 85% complete. I still need to print off new pictures for his picture frames, buy some decorations and organization stuff, and rearrange a few things. Other than those minor details, his anniversary present is practically complete. And he loves it! YAY! :)
So see... even with my rant, there are still great things to look forward to so life isn't all bad. haha... :)
Anything irk-ing you lately? Or something coming up that you're excited about?
