Oh, the crankiness

My over-reactor-inator is out of control.  So many things make me cranky.  And then I'm cranky because I don't want to be so cranky!

I can't look at Pinterest because I'm annoyed that people post things about Fall.  Because it's not Fall yet.  It was 102 degrees today.  I should still be swimming.  Fall's not so great.  It's my fourth favorite season, I think, down from third.  What's so great about it?  No swimming, the farmer is working ALL. THE. TIME, and there's no swimming!  Blah blah blah cooler weather and apples and outfits with scarves and boots and pumpkins....barf.  And since when are we decorating front porches?  I'm not even cleaning up toys or pulling weeds anymore.

I can't handle the news, or the paper, or people talking about their opinions on facebook.  Really any kind of opinion at all!  Someone could say that, I don't know, some kind of cookie is the best ever, and I would be annoyed.  Just post nice events from your life.  That's all you're allowed.  Because I'm the cranky boss of the universe.
The girls have two sets of sheets.  One of them is noisy.  I actually took a video of how noisy the sheets are to demonstrate how terribly annoying they are but for some reason it doesn't seem as compelling as it should.  They are REALLY NOISY.

On Netflix, Daniel Tiger only has 2 or 3 stars or something, when it should clearly have five stars because it is wonderful and sweet and helpful and the children love it too.  Everyone else is wrong.

But here's something that made me laugh out loud.

I really do know it's all nonsense and life is beautiful.  So just laugh at me along with me.  And please don't hold it against me if I say something crazy.

I'm cranky about several of these things too and I'm not in my third trimester. Except Fall. Fall means we're not melting our faces off. So that makes me happy.
Life is beautiful but also messy and not always rainbows and butterflies. Being cranky just means your real and alive.

Definitely just watched that QB trick play 6 times. Think Coach has that keyed up for the Auburn game? Lub lub.

Ha! I'm with you on so many of those things! (As I listen to Asher watching Daniel Tiger in the background...) Except fall. I {heart} fall. But I can totally support your reasons :)

The trick play kind of annoyed me, maybe b/c it reminds me of The Coach never being home in fall, but I am with you on Daniel Tiger for sure! Love to hear my 3 yo singing "we can be a good helper, in our fa-mi-ly" or "parents come back." I too am cranky about being cranky. :) Hang in there!
