National Pet Peeves Week

For all those who didn't already know, this week is National Pet Peeve Week. Yesterday morning I was listening to radio while I thought about getting out of bed and I heard about for the first time. All this time I could've been celebrating but I had no idea. I had to put some deep thought into this in order to come up with a list of my pet peeves. I don't have a lot because it takes a lot to annoy me. But here it goes...

#5 Alarm Clocks
#4 When annoying little stains magically appear on my clothes.
#3 Excessive Speed Bumps.
#2 This became one more recently. Campaign advertisements where all they do is put down and blame their opponent for the problems of the world. Come on, grow up and do some real campaigning. Hmph!

and drum #1 pet peeve is...I didn't have to think to come up with this one...

When cars run red lights. Particularly when they are turning left and they keep turning after their light has turned red. And even more, when those going straight don't make it through the light because the other cars kept turning when it wasn't their turn. GRRRR

And there you have it folks. My top 5 pet peeves. Happy Pet Peeves Week!!!

"I want to be at the Cabin" Fever...

For two weeks I have been looking forward to going the "Brakey's" cabin for conference weekend. We did our shopping and had everything ready to go. Then we heard the awful words: rain, snow, mud, four wheel drive, chains.  OH MAN!!! We were advised not to go because the road getting up and down from the cabin would be hazardous due to the storm coming in. Sniff, sniff. So we had a family sleep over at my parents. And it was just like we were at the cabin...except we had electricity, cell phone reception, lap tops, WII...Yeah just like the cabin.
