Stream of Consciousness Sunday: Annoyed

Holidays bring out the twitchy side of me, I think. I would love to write something beautiful and thought-provoking and all that jazz, but really, I’m just annoyed and feel like getting it out.

Today’s (totally optional) prompt: I’m Annoyed By…

stream of consciousness sunday

Right now, I’m watching the Auburn/Alabama game. I’m super annoyed by it all. By our coaching debacle, by the announcers who are being assholes, by the fact that I know Nick Saban’s going to run the score up to 100 if he can. By all of it.

Holidays annoy me. They’re not relaxing at all. Laundry still has to be done. Dishes are never-ending. The kid is bored and well, it just gets under my skin.

I’m annoyed, and this is stupid, that my pants are falling off of me. I just bought new ones and now the new, two sizes smaller, ones are falling off of me now. I don’t want to buy new jeans.

I’m annoyed by all the crap in the house but too unmotivated to do something about it. I’m annoyed that I hate decorating and so our house is bland and boring.

I’m annoyed that I need to change the sheets before I can go to bed. Can’t somebody else do that for me?

I’m annoyed that I’m so hard on myself all the time. I’m too critical and assume that everything is my fault. All the time.

And now I’m annoyed that my timer went off. Sometimes 5 minutes isn’t enough.

What annoys you?

  1. I am just the opposite, I love holidays, though I do agree that it’s annoying that the dishes and the laundry don’t magically do themselves during busy times. :)

  3. Yes yes and yes. Except the buying smaller jeans part. Okay and maybe not the football thing because I don’t understand sports. lol

  4. Congrats on the jeans! But yes. Spending the money and finding a new fit stinks. I hope the holiday bug bites you soon.

  5. I love the prompt for today, Jana. Thanks for giving me the incentive to be honest and get some annoyances off my chest. Have a great day!

  6. Oh Jana!
    You wrote everyhing I was thinking (except the jeans size…congrats and yay!).
    Here’s to hoping some kind of holiday cheer gets you!

  7. Congrats on the shrinkage! I’m sure it is annoying to have to keep buying new clothes.

    Almost didn’t use your prompt since I’m trying not to complain as much in my life, but went with it anyway. Good to get some things off the chest.

  8. It’s always too funny. I read your post then forget to comment. I was feeling sorry for you re Auburn then I read about your pants falling off. That’s awesome. Now come on — buying new jeans can’t be that annoying. And for the record, even in my quest to be positive this holiday season, Nick Saban does annoy me too.

  10. I could have written a 55 minute post on this subject, but I decided not to, out of respect for those are currently annoying me. Suffice it to say, I get where you’re coming from!
