Oscar the Grouch

I have avoided posting much lately because I am in a very "Oscar the Grouch" mood. Mostly because of people not following through on SIMPLE tasks. I am annoyed and frustrated and totally from Crab Apple Cove (I know that makes no sense but I had a college roommate who said that and it stuck. 12 years later and I still saying it.). I don't understand why people can't just do what they are told to do. Especially if what they are told to do is VERY SIMPLE and easy and fast and with a purpose. But instead they make me want to pull my hair out as I proceed to spend a full MONTH trying to get them to do a FIVE MINUTE PROJECT. Quit being dumb because it is only serving to annoy me. And as a result, I am going to turn around and badger you with very unpleasant phone calls and emails and in-person meetings. All over something you should have done a month ago that should have taken no more that five minutes.

See....this is why I avoided blogging. I am clearly still in a grumpy mood.

But do you know what fun thing happened today to add to my mood? Snow, that's what happened! It's not fair. I'm not expecting to wear the flip flops that JCrew has been peddling for three months now or anything wild like that. But I am tired of wearing boots and clearing off my car and messing up my hair with hats and just dealing with a white mess. I am whining at the moment and fully intend to continue said whine until the snow leaves me the heck alone.

I need to move south. I miss the sunshine and I really really miss my bestie!!

Crab Apple Cove is hilarous...I love it!

I totally understand why this situation is making you grumpy! It gets on my last nerve when people don't do simple things they are asked...I feel you pain!

We've had buckets of rain for I swear weeks. I don't remember the last time I saw the sun and Mr. Weatherman has just informed me we are getting rain all weekend. YIPPY!!!

FYI, you aren't the only Crankenstein in the Cove. I am *wallowing* in it. Waaahhh! ;-)

I think the feelings are all around. I put my 2 weeks notice in at work on Thursday and was in a foul mood all week because of it.

I call it being a "bitter banana". "A bitter banana will ruin the whole bunch", quite the JL saying.
