Rant One: Costco's Kirkland brand of dryer sheets - SUCK! They do absolutely nothing to reduce static cling and they don't make the clothes smell nice at all. And the best part? If you buy them, you are stuck with about NINE THOUSAND of them.
Rant Two: Why when something explodes, does it always have to be in my washing machine? Remember the diaper? Well last night it was hubby's pillow. I read the instructions carefully and washed as per. When I opened the washing machine, I at first thought "that's odd, the soap didn't rinse out?", then when I looked closer I realized that it was about a BAZILLION teeny tiny nodules of fibrefill - filling my washer to the brim! AGGHH!! So thankfully there were only a couple of articles of clothing in the machine with it that I had to fish out and shake free of little fuzzies. But there went hubby's pillow. What a disappoinment too, because they were Sears brand and not cheap.
Rant Three: My allergies have kicked in full force today. Bummer. Now it's time to haul out the antihistamines and start popping them like candy again. I hate being a slave to drugs.
Rant Four (and really, the biggie): Why, oh WHY do the movie companies think it is a good idea to put eight hundred previews and the locked security message (that you can't bypass) on children's films? I mean, do they honestly think three year olds are reading the "don't copy on pain of death" message? Do they think that the adults haven't been reading that message since the dawn of time? Do they think the previews are a good idea when you play them and your child thinks that this is the movie coming on and either gets excited or ticked because she wanted the one that it really is? (Whoa - strange sentence there). I dunno - my patience for stuff is thin these days and I don't get it. It's like when we went to the theatre to see Ice Age 2 and there was an interminable amount of previews - to the point where I thought Kestrel was going to bust a vein in her head about the movie coming on. Someone oughtta write a letter....
Boy, I'm cranky.
Just to balance this post out, though - I forgot to mention that hubby got me red roses and lilies for our anniversary yesterday (my favorites) and two really good quality pens (by my request) from my favorite store Essence du Papier. So the anniversary was nice, albeit quiet, and nothing really out of the norm. Hopefully we will take care of the dinner part on the weekend coming up!
