I've been Tagged!

Remember playing tag back in grade school? I was such an introverted, geeky kid that I always despised being "it" and I was usually the last one tagged, which suited me just fine. But now I'm (semi) grown-up and it's been (never mind how many) years since I've been subjected to that kind of school yard humiliation. And fortunately I haven't been too traumatized by those childish games to reject participating in a nice, friendly, sitting-down-at-my-computer tag right now. In fact, I have to say I rather like this civilized version of the game.

I've been tagged by Tracy of The Daily Mom Diaries and instead of getting that old familiar feeling of being somehow contaminated, I'm proud to accept my tag & seek out a fellow blogger to spread the love around.

The only conditions of my tagging are that I list a few things that make me grumpy, which believe me, is not a difficult task for me. I will, however, cap it off at 5, and spare you all my irritable grumblings. So, here's my top 5 pet peeves (for today, anyway):

  1.  Cranky people. I know, it's supposed to be things that make me cranky, but there's nothing that bothers me more than when I wake up in a decent mood, only to be surrounded by moody, sullen folks. It ruins what could have been a perfectly good day, and therefore makes me just as cranky.
  2. Leaving my son in hubby's care for an hour or two and returning home to find my just-cleaned house in a shambles. 
  3. Not enough sleep. I love to sleep. I used to be able to sleep anytime, anyplace. Not so now. Last night I got about 4 hours. *Sigh*.
  4. Stupid drivers. In the city that I live in, there seem to be many. I have terrible road rage that I need to get under control. 
  5. Crappy music. One thing I love about my job is I can listen to my fave tunes on my headphones pretty much all day. I'm very particular about what I listen to and have zero tolerance for bad music. I guess you could say I'm a music snob.
So, there you have the top 5 things that turn me into a Grumpy Gus. And now it's time to turn things over and tag a fellow blogger - Stefanie at The Blue Zoo - you're it!

    Why, why, WHY is it tht husbands lack the innate ability to put anything away? Kind if ruins the help of you watching the kid for an hour when it creates three hours of cleaning (and baby watching) for me.
