Things I {don't} Love

Thursday, May 2, 2013

Good Thursday morning lovelies!
I hope you are having a great week so far. But if not, I'm sure you have a few things to complain about, and I'd love to hear all about them. Won't you join me for a little linky I like to call 

That's right. Things you don't love. Like things that annoy you, grind your gears, and make you want to rip your own hair out at the moment. It can be one thing or it could be 10 things.

Here's how it works: write up your own Things I {don't} Love post and link it up here. Please make sure to grab a button or link back to my blog in some way, then hop around the link ups and check out some other blogs. Linky parties are a great way to meet new people and find some fun new blogs to follow, so have fun and be social. I always read and try to comment on every single link up! 

Grocery shopping. I just hate it. I wish someone else could do it. I hate having the "pressure" of having to choose everything that everyone wants to eat for the week. Most times, I get no input on dinner or snack ideas, so I just go with it and get what I want. But then when I get home it's always "You didn't get _____?" or "I really wish you would start buying ______!" Yeah, that information would be helpful before I left the house. It's always a guessing game and I don't like it.

Being "the maid." I was cleaning up the kitchen one day when I noticed that a lot of dishes seemed to be missing. I decided to go room to room and track down every dish I could find, and I was disgusted and horrified at what I found. My little family has turned into pigs! I don't know what the heck is going on, but my kids & my husband left all of these in the bedrooms. Disgusting! None of these were mine either. I found them on nightstands, in windowsills, and sitting next to beds. I warned everyone that if this happens again, mom goes on a cleaning strike and they won't be happy about it. I'm a clean freak, but I'm not a freaking maid and I expect everyone else to clean up after themselves to some degree. 

Seeing kids buckled incorrectly in car seats. This happens all.the.time. A friend or acquaintance will post a picture of their kid on Facebook or Twitter and right away I notice the kid is totally buckled incorrectly- usually when the chest clip is all the way down on their stomachs. I always say something and I find it pretty crazy when people reply with a rude remark. Oh, hi. Don't mind me...just trying to save your kids' life if you ever get in a car wreck and that awful buckling job doesn't protect your baby. Read the instruction manual and let's get some common sense people. 

Now it's your turn.
Link up your own Things I {don't}Love post.
Make sure to follow me on Twitter too so we can stay connected!


  1. The grocery shopping thing drives me crazy!! David does it to me! I'll ask him SOOOOO many times what he wants to the point that he'll get frustrated that I've asked so many times & then I'll get home and he bitches.

    And yes to the car seat thing!! I'm constantly moving Owen's chest clips up! I get that they slide down, the kids wiggles, etc etc, but MOVE THEM WHERE THEY GO!!! Geez!

  2. I hate shopping too! Plus I am always debatting go to the crazy busy annoying store that's cheaper, or the nicer, cleaner, quicker store that costs more. blah! Let's just have cereal for dinner, that will make everyone happy.

  3. I hate being the maid sometimes, drives me crazy!

  4. Grocery shopping makes me nuts. I hate the lights, the noise, the screaming over the loud speakers, screaming brats running into you and the lines. I am vegetarian so lucky I can stock up on legumes beans and rice, but its still a necessity every week or so. Lucky for me , with no kids by choice I have no one to clean up after but myself and I love it.

  5. Oh dear... I so relate on the maid thing! Grr....
    And groceries... I am the lucky one that really only shops for myself since my husband works in Kansas, he isn't here 100% of the time. But when he is home, he isn't that picky with what I pick up. :) Although he gets upset when I don't pick up sticks of butter (I like the tub of margarine).


I love hearing what you have to say! Comments make me happy.
