Life's getting me

How can such petty things hold the center stage of life- there's not a single potato left in the kitchen, the coffeemaker is leaking gallons of water, much more than it can hold. Have to buy a new one ASAP!!

Why can't I leave the trivia behind and focus on larger issues or think about I don't know - inflation,recession,oil spills in the Gulf of Mexico, or the Mayan prediction for 2012?????

Or 180 degrees turn -at least think about making it an easier journey for those who live with me...how do they even put up with me, forever holding shields and armors in preparation for an attack!!!!

Love or tolerance or empathy?????

Sounds funny, but it isn't!!

He says,hi,whats up
Just waiting to blow up.
He says, meet at lunch?
No sir,thanks a bunch.
He says, how about a movie?
You both go,just let me be.
He says, a cup of hot coffee?
Not even if you make it for me.
He says, lets go for a walk?
If you promise not to talk.

Sara, slow down, breathe deep and take it easy. I really hope you get back to being the cheerful and affable person you are once these routine (but unavoidable) kitchen bothers stop irking you... Smile!

I so understand. We have all been there -- some days the minor things of life seem very major.

Be kind to yourself.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

It felt as if I was looking at the mirror, while reading this post. I thought I was the only one getting totally insane out there, freaking out on every and anything in the household. But I am glad, I have company :-)
Lately, I have realized to take a deep breath and think just for a moment again before reacting on petty situations. It did help me calm down.
But, the title is so true, life is getting us.
