5 Things That Drive Me Nuts - About Myself??

This week, Nicole over at Moment That Define Life, has us listing about things that drive us nuts.  About ourselves.  Oh boy.  And I have to be open and honest about this on my blog?  Yikes.

Ok, here I go.  Diving in head first.

1).  I am not a morning person.

And even more than that, I am a person who requires a lot of sleep.  I would love to feel rested and not always be exhausted, but I don't.  And it drives me NUTS!  Because I want to be rested and energetic, ready to take on the world everyday.  And sometimes I do wake up feeling that way and make it all day long, go go go.  But more often than now, I am slow slow slow.  It is really annoying.  It drives me nuts.

Hello friend.

2).  I can't keep a room clean for more than a few days at a time...

Which is SO ANNOYING!!!  It is completely baffling to me how I can spend hours and hours picking up and cleaning a room, only to have it be a complete mess again a few days later.  How do bombs go off that quickly?

3).  I LOVE potatoes.

In any way shape or form.  French fries, baked, hashed, with cheese, without cheese, you name it.  I want it.  I would eat a potato in some form for every meal of the day!  Why can't I love something healthy, like broccoli?  I like broccoli, but I would get really sick of it all day every day.  But not a potato.  Yum.  Ok now I need to go find some french fries.....

4).   The older I get, the more easily I get overwhelmed.

I handled stress much better when I was younger.  And the sad part is, I'm not exactly old.  But, I feel like I get overwhelmed and stressed out by less the older I get.  And is so annoying!  Because I used to be able to handle 1800 bouncing balls, no problem.  And I still juggle a lot, but it's not the same.  And we haven't even thrown kids into the mix yet. Maybe this is the universe telling me to take on less, who know.  But I hate that I can't handle the world, all of the time, anymore.  It really drives me nuts.

This is what I feel like when I am overwhelmed.  

5).  I can't keep a plant alive to save my life.  Or its life.

And I've tried.  Believe me, I have tried.  I like plants. And flowers.  And would love to have them around; they are pretty, happy and cheerful.  We have a great area for hanging plants on our deck.  But I don't even try.  Because they will inevitably die.  

  Poor flowers.  This is what always happens.


  1. I too am a plant killer, but that doesn't really bother me because I'm not much of a plant lover. I am also obsessed with potatoes - this definitely annoys me when I'm trying to diet!
    My control & anxiety issues that I put on my 5 list definitely get worse as I get older, and it's SCARY!

  2. Ugh, I hear ya! Doesn't getting older suck? Acupuncture has helped me some, because I am horrible about taking care of myself. Hence the eating potatoes, needing to diet, stress cycle starting all over again! LOL

  3. One and five are totally me too. I am so glad I am not the only constantly exhausted non morning person plant killer out there!
    Stopping by from the SITS girls spring fling! This is such a cute blog!

  4. So many of these things are me too! And completely annoy myself :P The only differences are I can keep a plant alive (sometimes I am just not interested to though) and I could keep a room clean (before I had kids, now not so much!).

    Came here via Spring Fling on SITS.

  5. Thanks so much for stopping by SITS Girls! I am hoping for a quite moment soon to catch up on some Spring Fling action! Can't wait to check out your blogs!
