Monday Morning Rants

It's Monday morning! YUCK!! Leisure time is over. Fun times, over. Here are a few things that I've noticed and thought I would share:

1. My digital camera is so temperamental I swear it's a woman going through "the change."

2. My youngest son refuses to listen to me when I say "Enough junk" and then wonders why his stomach is so upset.

3. My husband is a royal bear in the morning as if I have some control over the weather.

4. Left to his own resources, my oldest son would fail English, freeze in the elements and never brush his teeth!

5. My cats are former Nascar hopefuls when they're not passed out.

6. Our police scanner is a veritable pantheon full of freaks and weirdos.

7. Dust continues to collect and gather.

8. Allergies suck.

9. I probably don't have enough Halloween candy.

10. And I'd really rather just go back to bed!

Oh my gosh, Julie, you had me laughing out loud over this one! I have one more to add from my morning: why, with a car full of crap, can I never find the windshield scraper when I'm late...
Hope the week will get beter for you!
xoxo,
Mary

Julee Ann said...

Ha Ha! This is great. I found one more thing that you and I have in common; We start Christmas music in Oct. Yay! Have a merry Monday!

Kristen said...

You are too funny! I too am pulling out the Christmas music! I think we will begin decorating soon depending on when we are moving that is.....

Terri and Bob said...

You have my permission to go back to bed and wake up again!

Rosie's Whimsy said...

Been there, Sister.....different list but the same sentiments!

As my Dad would say it time to "pull yourself up by your bootstraps and get on with it".

Sure hope the rest of the day improves :-)

Super Mom said...

Mine is too which is bad cause I'm a total morning person.

Heidi said...

My advice? Go out right away and buy some pink sunglasses to look at life through on days like this. It will get better or you could just run away. LOL! Nah! You would miss them all.

When is trick or treat at your end? I know my mother just had hers on Sunday.

Linda said...

Hi Julie..you made my day better already....your post gave me a good laugh! I always thought it was just me who had some of these issues, I fell better knowing I'm not alone:). Hope things are better when you read this. Linda

DebraK from ~the Bunnies Bungalow~ said...

Monday mornings....ugh! I agree with you on that. Just be thankful to live another day & then go back to bed!
Big hug, Debra

Melissa @ The Inspired Room said...

Yeah, today my son went through his Monday morning rant (mind you, he is only 7), 'I hate school, no one would go to school if they didn't have to, it is so long and so boring, all we get to do is work..." blah blah blah blah blah. If he only knew what is in store for the next 3,000 Mondays of his life.

I don't blame you, go back to bed!

Megan said...

my sentiments exactly!

Dana said...

Anita said...

Oh, do you know, playlist doesn't have my absolute favorite secular Christmas song... "White Christmas" by Bing Crosby... *sigh* What's a Christmas music list without it!?

Hugs to Jules!

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

LOL at you Julie, I feel the same way today. I vowed I would work on my website all day today. It's now 3 pm and I haven't done a darn thing. Just can't seem to get motivated but your post for today made me laugh and that's a good thing. Ok...now on to my website to work. Hugs to You ~ Lynn

Rosemary said...

Julie,
You are sooo funny! I hear you. I am relaxing after the wedding, by reading blogs today. I have dust and ashes at my house, and I don't know if I have enough candy either.
My daughter called to tell me they arrived safely in Rome, so all is good with the newlyweds.

Bethany Hissong said...

And that's why women get along so well! We commiserate...and Julie, I hear you!!!!!!! Oh, I wish I could crawl back in bed and let everyone go about their day without my help...but no such luck. Try to have a good week! It's so cold here now and I'm assuming in Pittsburgh too!

Kari & Kijsa said...

Have a blessed rest of the week (it's going to get better.....we just know it)!

I'm kinda glad to read your list. I was beginning to wonder if you did anything besides visit other blogs, pray for other people, and leave sweet words. =) Blessings... Polly

Oh man! You are having one rough day.
It'll get better!
Halloween is tomorrow...maybe if you pulled some pranks, you'd feel better. Do it! Do the fork thing, take pictures, and post on your blog.

justabeachkat said...

It sounds like it was one of those days where you'd like to just pull the covers back over your head and stay in bed. LOL!

Hugs!
