I’m just annoyed today. It actually started last night when I researched Tabitha’s sore throat that is not getting better. It seems, based on her symptoms, that the caused might be me (indirectly). Because of the heater being on so high and nearly constantly, I’ve apparently dried her out and now she’s suffering. Not only do I feel like utter crap because I’ve done this do her, but now we all have to be cold so I can get some moisture into this house. It’s raining today, so that should really help. She slept with the vaporizer on in her room last night and this morning I kept the heater turned low and she’s been downing loads of water and she does feel better today. Well enough, in fact, that she ate real food today and had a regular lunch.

I decided to get us out of the house and head to the mall because we have three returns/ exchanges to make. I grabbed bag number 1 in the house and the receipt wasn’t inside. I searched my receipt pile, didn’t find it and said “oh well” because it’s just a pair of earrings from Claire’s. We went to the car and I grabbed the other two bags, one didn’t have the receipt. I know it was there before so I don’t know where it went. I decided not to go to the mall just for one thing and so I got both kids out of the car and went back in. I was determined to find that receipt so I started again going through my pile and Mr. F shows up with his crew. Although I’m glad to have my yard worked on, it was bad timing because I was trying to do something and now it was loud as heck and then one guy knocked my mailbox down. Plus they didn’t work on what I thought they were going to and instead trimmed my big tree that didn’t really need trimming. Then someone walked up my front step and I thought it was Mr. F wanting to get paid but instead it was another damn realtor leaving a flyer. They annoy the heck out of me.

I also looked over our new curriculums that we’ve been waiting for a long time. We received a nice big box yesterday and I sat down to read it. I have to return the writing program and exchange the art program. The art program is my fault for misunderstanding and choosing the wrong level, but the writing program is not what I expected and just won’t work even a tiny bit. So that’s annoying too.

Then I played Wii and that helped un-annoy me. The Chex Mix didn’t hurt either. Oh, and the kids being cute while playing together :)

But the little things are still setting me off so I came here to vent.

    Tell me about your curriculum??? Please? Email me if you would like. I’m trying to decide what I want to do next year for my kids and I like to find out what other families are doing. I could use a little guidance I think. :)
