Pet Peeves

So, this is a topic that I think about very often. I have a lot of them, and most of them are pretty stupid, but they really annoy the heck out of me.

SOOOO, for your reading pleasure, in no particular order, here are some of my pet peeves. What are yours?

1.) When people walk down the wrong side of the hallway, bump into me, and give ME nasty looks -even though THEY'RE on the wrong side of the hall, and THEY bumped into ME. UGH!

2.) When people who have no kids try to tell you how to parent. Yes, I'm glad that you're a terrific babysitter, but babysitting is COMPLETELY different then parenting. Yes, it really is.

3.) When people on eBay send me messages asking me to leave them feedback. I HATE that. I leave my feedback in lumps, and when you email me demanding that I leave feedback for you is NOT going to make me do it any sooner. Besides, feedback is VOLUNTARY not MANDATORY.

4.) Having a really great coupon, and not being able to find stuff to use it on!

5.) The fact that my kids sleep in on days we have to be up early, and are up at the crack of dawn days we can sleep in.

6.) When the big kids at the playground hog the baby swings.

7.) When the big kids at the playground act like wild animals, and my kids think that they're cool, and try to copy what they're doing. IE -jumping off the top of the side of the slide!

8.) Missing puzzle pieces.

9.) White socks.

10.) When, instead of ASKING if they can come over and play, people just SEND their kids over to play.... As soon as I get home.... Before I've even walked in the door.

11.) Having to wait for Little Miss to take a nap, or DH to have five free minutes so that I can jump in the shower. (Of course, this is getting better now since I can take LM in the shower with me. -Thank goodness!)

12.) When the store is having a good sale, and on the first day of it they run out of product... and don't offer rain cheques.

13.) Washing my chapsticks.

14.) DRYING my chapsticks. (Not only does this ruin the chapstick, but ruins all of the clothes as well!)

15.) When DH doesn't answer his phone when I call.

16.) When DH doesn't answer his phone when I call again.

17.) When DH STILL doesn't answer his phone when I call AGAIN.

18.) Children whose soul intention in life is to be mean to my kids and make them miserable.

19.) Forgetting my list of Pet Peeves... Grrrr...

That's about all I can think of now. I know that the list was MUCH longer when I started this posting. Maybe I'll continue it tomorrow.

Feel free to add your own Pet Peeves!

Happy Friday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Old Navy Weekly! Coupon giveaway and leggie giveawa

Okay, so Old Navy Weekly is set to update shortly. This means that a whole new round of coupons are going to be made available for your coupon hunting pleasure!
However, if coupon hunting is not your thing, but you're still hoping to get your hands on a good coupon, visit Christine over at From Dates to Diapers. Old Navy was nice enough to give her a few $65 off $100 coupons to give away. Visit her blog, read the simple directions on how to enter for your chance to win, and cross your fingers! (And while you're there, read some of her great blog and leave her some love!)
Also, I'm still hosting a Jacquelynnies leggies giveaway. Enter here for directions and your chance to win two free pairs of toddler leggies. And don't fret! If you don't win the leggies they're super inexpensive, so you can still buy lots of them!
I think that's about it for now. We're having another play date today. Only one extra kiddo today. It's going well so far. Sometimes I think that having 4 extra kiddos is easier then just one extra kiddo. It makes it so everyone always has someone to play with even if two are squabbling.... Lunch is a little more difficult to prepare, but we're a bit more relaxed overall when there are more kiddos.... Maybe I should open a daycare for the summer -ha! Just kidding!
