Pet Peeves and Other Weird Quirks......

As I drove the kids to school this morning
I was harassed by 2 of my many pet peeves ha

~wind shield wipers that wiggle, stick or streak~
~or when Hank refuses to use his at all CRINGE~
Hank replaced mine a few weeks ago
and they wiggle and stick constantly
I called him this morning and asked
"did you buy me the wiggle and stick style so I would stop using them?"
His response
"No they are the stubborn wife training model!"

on to more pet peeves....

~when exiting the school 
in the school zone
and peeps refuse to obey the speed limit
and fly past the entrance at 40mph~
makes me want to be Gomer Pyle and do the whole citizens arrest thing!

speaking of citizens arrest....

~ when peeps don't put up their shopping carts in the parking lot~
I mean really!!!
do you not realize some worker out there has to clean up after you???
makes me crazy..
I may be the one that wants to lean her head out the window and say
"excuse me, aren't you going to take that to it's designated place...
you know.... so some overworked person does not have to do it for you??"
but I'm never brave enough
I just smolder instead...

enough of the pet peeves
now the totally weird quirks that I have
I know Hank can add many many many more!

~I cannot not swim exactly 3000 meters~
I can go over but I cannot go under
I mean really does 2 more laps matter?
apparently they must because I just can't swim less
even if I am in a hurry
weird I know

~I drink my coffee in the exact same cup
even take it with me on vacation

~makes me crazy when anyone leaves anything on my kitchen counter by the sink~
anywhere else on the counter I can work through with deep breaths
but by the sink???
can't do it
it is like my work space sanctuary or something weird like that

~oh and you can't leave cups or dishes laying around~
they will be put in the dishwasher before you turn around...
when Eric lived with us before he and Allie got married
(brave soul, Allie was still in college and he had gotten his first job)
he left a note on his plate one morning that he was not finished with it yet
still makes me laugh!!

~I don't like to talk to ANYONE first thing in the morning~
I'm still not adjusted to Janie in the early morning
that child bounces out of bed full of energy
with joy all over her 
and I have to brace myself
for the non stop talking
I know I'm pathetic
this is how I feel

if she makes it til 6:15 and I have had a cup of coffee all is good in my world haha

~I am totally weird about my kitchen and hallway floors~
have to sweep, vacuum whatever every day
the rest of the house can get cluttered with all the after school, work, mail,
packages and stuff
and I can totally ignore
but my floors can't be dirty...
trust me my house is a disaster most days
but you won't find grass and dog hair on my floor...
or dishes on the counter haha 

now some bad facts about me

~ I struggle with reading with a kindergartner~
the struggle is real
like I feel like I'm going to pull my hair out
as I try so very hard to be upbeat and kind...

~I can't stand glitter in my house~
Madeline's favorite thing ever
I have to take a deep breath and close my eyes when I give in and let her create

~I'm not a good teacher~
easier to do it myself
I am a work in progress on this one!

~I'm not good with whining~
Deep breaths....deep breaths

~I'm not patient when asked multiple questions at one time~
can frazzle me in seconds
I laughed typing that cause it is so true! 
I want to say to everyone

Let's see what Hank has to add later???
I'm a bit scared to see!!! 

I have not taken many pics lately but got this one of us this past weekend at a wedding:)

it is always nice to have a date night:)
