My eighth Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen Things that just drives me batty!
1…. Okay we just got our carpets cleaned, and the kids played in the mud, and now I am cleaning mud off my carpet!
2. I get really frustrated when I am in the middle of something and my husband yells he needs help...(this really seems to happen a lot....or maybe just my imagination.
3. When I am driving to a new place, and time is short, and I pass it, and have to do a U turn in bad traffic...very frustrating.
4. Very frustrating when I am driving to a new place....short on time....pass it...and the kids are screaming in the back of the car!
5. frustrating that I can't get my girls to stop sharing their sippie cups!
6. I have these old style blinds...that I hate....and when they won't go up or down when I want them to...oh so frustrated!
7. So ultimately frustrating when you have just mopped the floor, you are hot, and tired, and someone gets it dirty.
8. When I set my DVR to tape a show that I really really love, and it cuts it off at the end....and I don't get to see who won American Idol! (I do know now who won...but I had to go to the internet to find out:( )
9. My girls screaming all the time....(my boys never did it baffles me....)
10. When I go to the store, and I even bring my list....and then STILL forget something.
11. When I go to the store, and my daughter throws a tantrum to get the car cart....then insists she must walk the whole time.
12. When something I buy that is very expensive, and then doesn't work.
13. So the last thing that really drives me batty....when the bathroom door gets left open, and I find Rose playing in it...along with five rolls of toilet paper, and half the stuff under the sink.

Okay maybe I had a bad day. Tomorrow has got to be better!

OK - I feel really "batty" now! I hate the u-turn thing too (#3) & #10 - one thing I do is remember my list & then leave it in the car! I've done that more times than I would like to admit.

OMG~Sounds like our house. And yes, my girls can scream too! Must be a girl thing.LOL!

My husband does the same thing, and Lindsay loves to play in our bathroom too. The U-turn is a me thing too. I was lost a block away from somewhere and I spent the better of 20 minutes doing U-Turn after U-turn, finally I figured I'd turned down the wrong street. Very frustrating. Thank goodness we have tile, but frustrating because right after I've cleaned it someone spills something.
Love your list.
HOpe you have a good day, and don't have to clean the carpet! :)

Happy Thursday!

Wow! Certainly some very frustrating things. I hope they didn't all happen on the same day!!

I think I'm going batty just reading that - phew! But I may be able to help you with at least #6. My Grandma had the same problem, so I broke out the WD40, spray it up into the thingiemabob the string goes into and it should loosen up all the years of dry dirt built up in there and make it easier to raise and lower them.

Well, if you have time, I posted my TT13, this weeks its 13 All or Nothing Q's.

OK, this is sounding like a whole lotta frustration going on....why is life this way alot of the time? I am clueless to the answer but, would love to know. I like Friggas idea about the blinds...that could help you maybe give it a try:)
