Do you get irritable over the smallest things?

I know I do. Been that way since I was a child and it is one fault I would like to get over.

Like when I go into the kitchen and find my husband has left drawers open – again. Does it take too much effort to simply shut the drawer. Maybe it does and I do not realize it. 

I am also really pissed at my baseball team. No one can help Adam Dunn out of his hitting slump? None of the coaches can reach this guy? Big bucks were paid for a bat that is not hitting!!!!!! Is his contract breakable or does he need a stint in Triple A as a little reminder? Does he need an old-fashioned “mom” guilt trip?

Another thing that gets my gourd which is not really a big deal? That WordPress changes something every week. Just when I am comfortable “subscribe” is now called “follow” or the bars on the graph change.

Worse of all, seems to be my lack of ability to leave messages on other people’s posts. I cannot write anything more than a sentence or it never gets there. If I want to leave anything more than “Great post, lovely sentiments” it disappears after all of that hard work.

I realize that might indicate I need to upgrade. But upgrading means a $100 expenditure I simply do not have right now. So if WordPress would kindly fork over the money so I can get the latest windows upgrade and have all of the various search engines go to nth degree fast, I will take it.

By the way, has the word “collusion” occurred to anyone in this season of multiple updates?

I am really irritated by the heat we are experiencing this summer. Enough is enough, already. It was 8:00 at night and I was sopping wet. While this has been great for my continued weight loss, it is terrible for my ability to get anything done.

However, rain is due on Wednesday and is expected to get the temperature and humidity down a bit. And you know, that is just in time for our county fair.

Lastly, I am not sure if this is irritating but it is certainly sad. I was cleaning up the mess in the paperwork basket when I saw my college alumni bulletin. So I am checking it out and saw an old boyfriend had died at the age of 49. He was a nice guy, married a woman with three boys, they had one of their own and ended up with a few grandchildren.

There was nothing in the note to say what he died of and his obituary online did not report it either. But the notes left on the online memorial and Facebook indicated that he was missed after suffering through illness.

Not my former boyfriend but something I would imagine he would do, picture by reim 11.

When I think about his wife, I think that no one should be a widow in their 40s. It makes all of my irritations seem trivial and small. She might wish he was still there to leave drawers open and to hang with their grandkids.

It is something that makes you think and be grateful for what you do have.

Although, it would be nice if the husband would shut a drawer every now and again to surprise me.

Anything irritating you this week?
