Nap Time

My kids are taking a nap and I'd really like to be in bed reading, but I know I would probably fall asleep and just end up more tired than I am now so....blogging. Actually, I should be trying to get a gold cup in Mario Kart once and for all because when I play when Gavin is awake he walks in front of me and I take it way too seriously. I have to take a deep breath when he makes me lose and remember that it is just a video game and he is my child, therefore I cannot push him out of the way and saw naughty words.

Anyway, I'm annoyed by many things, so here is a list of no particular order, however number one is one of my BIGGEST pet peeves.

1. People who whistle. - I'm may be this person, many people do it. Particularly, there is a man who works in Meijer that whistles so loud that I can hear him no matter where we are in the store in relation to each other. When I hear him I am instantly enraged and on a mission to find him and give him a dirty look....but he is so sneaky, too! I get a glimpse of him down an aisle or something and then he's gone..but always the whistling...the whistling.

2. The parking situation at the medical office we go to...or actually parking in general. Yes, this will sound insensitive, but if you need a handicap sticker because you are just too old to walk into a shouldn't be driving. I'm not saying handicapped people shouldn't drive...if you have a disability but can still drive, more power to you. But if you are so old or physically impaired you have no business driving anyway, get someone to drop you off at the door so I don't have to cart my two screaming kids a mile to the door in the wind and snow.

3. Cell phones. Yes, cliche, everyone hates people who don't have cell phone etiquette...yet why are there so many people in the world who insist on pulling out in front of you while they drive 5 mph because they are on the phone and steering with one hand? Or what about the person in front of me returning something at Target who hands the clerk her item and receipt and thinks that all the communication needed, because she is also on a call and can't be bothered to converse with a Target employee. I heard the conversation didn't sound like an emergency or anything.

4. People at the gym. I'm a member of Lifetime Fitness, which, if you've never been there, is great but also a lot like GloboGym from Dodge Ball. Anyway, most people are cool, but some people are of the opinion that they must dress head to toe in the latest work out styles, complete with matching hat, jacket, shoes, and iPod holder...and then they must talk to their best friend running next to them on the treadmill about the latest guy they are dating...loudly. OH wait, one of them gets a phone call....better take this...loudly. At least she didn't start whistling.

I could go on and on....but I already sound a bit like a jerk. I've made it my policy not to do any cleaning when both boys are sleeping...but maybe I should break that rule since I should probably get my house in order before we head to AZ and I start work. Wait, Phineas and Ferb is on. Sweet.

Do you hate that song "I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas."? All of a sudden he busts out whistling in the middle of the song. What's up with that? It sounds so stupid.
