Friday NOT Favorites

Excuse my bitter moment here, but because it's a Friday the 13th and all, I thought I'd do a little twist on Friday Favorites, and share some of my not-so-favorite things at the moment! All in good fun, but a good time to air some grievances ;)

My Friday the 13th NOT-favorites! |

Endless Winter
I know everyone is saying this right now, but this winter has been a killer. There have been more snowfalls, sniffles, and frozen toes than I can count. I am so tired of being wrapped in blankets and craving comfort foods. I need sunrises and birdsong and fresh fruit and sunsets and backyard fires. Our extended forecast doesn't look any better...there's still snow in it! Winter through the end of April is definitely NOT my favorite!

I am kind of a stickler for grammar - I mean, I understand that we're all human and we all make mistakes, but there are certain words that when misused get under my skin more than others. When people say "I seen" rather than "I saw" or "I've seen"'s like nails on a chalkboard!

Tuesday Mornings
I have one day a week where my life is way more hectic than the others. It's because it's my errand-running day, and most of that requires a lot of prep work like meal planning, making shopping lists, packaging things for shipping, and getting up early enough to have time to get ready. I am late getting Jake to school almost every single week after rushing through my morning and juggling many things on my way out the door. Then I get to spend hours stopping at store after to store for groceries and household necessities, and by the time I make it back home after preschool pickup, I am DONE! I know I shouldn't complain, but it's hurried and exhausting every single week, and Tuesday is just not my favorite. (the day changes depending on schedules every school year - last year it was Wednesday)

The follow-follow-unfollow-unfollow Game
You know what I'm talking about, right? When someone follows you on Instagram just so you'll follow them back, and you do to be kind, and then the next day they unfollow you, so you unfollow them back. Every time I think...what was the point of that? Was that a good way to spend our time? lol I really hate the practice of following people just to inspire a follow back....just follow people if you want to follow them, right? Or if you're in a recip group, follow the rules and just follow each other. The end. The shady Instagram games are NOT my favorite! lol

Weak or Sour Coffee
Okay so, I've always been kind of a coffee snob. I guess that's what happens when you start drinking it in childhood! haha Now that I drink my coffee black, I notice the subtle differences in types of coffee much more easily. I've never understood weak coffee, but now I can taste a sourness in certain kinds. (When I say that, people always say something like, you mean bitter? And no, coffee is supposed to be bitter, not sour. Big difference!) Starbucks is always good!

Meal Planning
When you have three little ones, two of which are very picky, and you all eat a special diet (no gluten/corn/processed meat for all, no dairy for me), and you try to keep things healthy and organic as possible, and you're sticking to a budget......meal planning is THE WORST! It takes entirely too much time, and it's so. frustrating. Meal planning is definitely NOT my favorite!!!

Winter in April
Oh wait, we already did this one? Oops ;)

Linking up with the bloggers listed above!

Happy-almost-Weekend! :)

  1. I think the worst part of being an adult is the meal planning and all that it entails. I'm still waiting for the Willy Wonka meal pill because I absolutely will want that.

  2. Haha, I like this twist you did! I totally agree with the winter comment....bring on spring...and let it stay!

    1. Yessss, PLEASE!!! It looks like Spring might ACTUALLY join us starting tomorrow. Fingers crossed!!!
