Writer's Workshop

So, Mama Kat** hosts a Writer's Workshop each Thursday. I enjoy many of her prompts and think about writing on one of them each week. Alas, I never do. But guess what? This week I am! I am choosing Prompt #3: List ten things you are currently sick of. Hmm, a request to complain? OK, I can do that.

Ten Things That I Am Currently Sick Of
May 2009

1. My body hurting! I will be very happy when this Marathon in over. I wanted to do it. I'm glad I'm doing it. I will NEVER do it again!

2. Rain. We have had a lot of rain here in the past couple of weeks. It's been nice the past few days, but more rain is on it's way. I wish I could enjoy it like Linlee!

3. Middle School. I feel like I have been a student these last few months. I have been trying so hard to get the girls to care about and keep their grades up. I'll be happy for the summer break. Hopefully next year will be easier.

4. PTA. I love volunteering at school. I love the things I do with the PTA. I love that my friend Brenda is the president and we get to spend a lot of time together, but this end of the year crunch is overwhelming!

5. Cat boxes. And I don't mean a box full of cats, because that would be adorable!

6. Messy kids' rooms. Why can't they be more like me. I mean I'm not asking them to dust and vacuum on a daily basis, but just pick up the shit stuff all over the floor. Especially the trash! C'mon!

7. Having Braces. The pain is pretty much over. I have some really cold-sensitive teeth, but I can deal with that (especially, once I figured out I should use warm water while brushing my teeth. That only took about a week of pain to come up with. I know, I'm a genius!) The biggest complaint is I can't have tortilla chips. I miss Nachos! One day we will be together again, my love!

8. Chores. I mean I don't mind cleaning and doing laundry, but it's just when I make a list and call them chores. I can't stand doing it and then I don't.

9. Being lazy. I really am (see complaint above) Sometimes, I just lay around and do nothing all day. I usually have some kind of excuse (see complaint #1) or a headache or I just want to spend time goofing off with my sweetie!

10. Complaining. You know, unless it's me doing it!

**note: i am not obesessed with kat. although it may seem i have talked about her a lot lately, it's just because i want her to be my new best blog friend. and i wish she would read my blog everyday. and i want her to tell me how funny and pretty and smart i am. but really, it's not anything weird. if you're reading this HI KAT!**

Hi Jen, its me, Kat. You are totally smart and funny and great. Ha ha, just kidding, it's Kirsten ;-)

Jen said...

So Kirsten, you were just kidding about being Kat, but you do think I smart and funny and pretty, right?

Kirsten said...

But of course, I was totally serious about that part!

Michelle said...

If you got pregnant, then you wouldn't be able to deal with them!!!!! You should totally have a baby!!!!!

Colleen said...

#2 made me laugh. I don't think anyone enjoys the rain more than my kid!

How come you can't have nachos? I had braces (at age 12 - heh heh) and I don't remember nachos being off limits.

Jen said...

You're right Colleen! No one loves the rain like your girl! As far as the nachos go, there just too hard and crunchy. Maybe I'm just being overly cautious, but I'm not going to do ANYthing to lengthen this process!!
