Things That Make You Go GRRRRRR

1. The daughter that will never hurry when she is late to school RUNS to class when she is recovering from a cold and was told not to.

2. The good parking spots are always on the opposite side from where you are looking.

3. You find a good spot, pull up to it, and realize it is a spot with a little car in it that pulled all the way forward. (mirage spot)

4. You find another good spot, pull up to it, and there are grocery carts in the front of it.

5. You put on a shirt you have worn less than seven times and it is stained. Perhaps this is a lesser know super power, the ability to stain all my clothing. Somebody think up a good superhero name for me.

6. Just when you are getting ready to take the last child in the house to pre-school and get your precious alone time, the school nurse calls. You have to pick up your middle child.

7. How much better middle child miraculously feels when you tell her you are hauling her to the book store BECAUSE YOU HAD BEEN LOOKING FORWARD TO GOING ALL DAY!

8. Listening to middle child nag you while you try to find a book until you give up.

9. The lady in the Mercedes who ACCELERATES when your child is in the crosswalk with you. (Does Black Sharpie wash off Mercedes? I hope not.)

10. Realizing you must be PMS'ing because you are a total crab.

11. What makes you go grrrrr?

work makes me go grrrrrr...., as you can see by my blog. And a perfect name for your superheroic power of making stains appear out of thin air would be The Stain Houdini.

No - I got a Bette Hagman gluten-free gourmet cookbook, but I can't browse while I'm getting nagged.

I forgot another thing (or things) that make me go grrrrr. They are knocking over one cup of coffee, two cups of water, and the dog's water dish in one day. Grrrrrr.

The 'mirage' parking spaces!!!

Miss C running naked in and out of her grandparents house, not deciding if to go in or out of the pool...

Trying to make sure Miss C has everything and when I finally sit down to read she moans: "More milk"..grrrr

How about people in front of you at red lights who are not paying attention and stay preocccupied until 1/2 way through the green light and you miss it--again.

Or on a personal GRRR, the girl that sits next to me in my math class who chews gum louder and more gross sounding that a 4 yr old.

My Grrrrrrrrrs are as follows, and thank you for asking:

Rudeness in any form.
Parents who turn their bullies loose on playgrounds, and then leave.
Whiners. Old or Young.
Religious Zealots.
And right now, Spring Break! Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr...

How about FINALLY getting all the kids in bed after a long day, climbing into bed half asleep and then the dog starts puking. That's my life. :) I'm with you on the mirage parking spaces. That really makes me go grrr.

how about people who drive extra slow in traffic, on the way to and from work and at lunch., They seem to sense when you really need to go the speed limit and slow down accordingly. (must be a power thing)

Husbands who always seem to get home just after the "difficult" child gets put to bed.
