confessions of a whiner

i've been thinking...sometimes i whine...most of the time i don't need to. i have always been a loud preacher of "complaining about something doesn't help anything"...but sometimes i wish it did. and most of the time, it gosh darnit just feels good to vent...

here are some things i complain (too much?) about...

--the blasted houston heat and humidity and rain and the weather here in general
--the stupid drivers here (must be the heat)...but really, am i the only one on the road who remembers learning that changing lanes in an intersection is, in fact, ILLEGAL?!
--being hungry. i mean...you know...craving popcorn...or rice...oooor coffee, a snickers bar, a cold coke, chips and salsa...the usual...
--going to the gym. (but what i really complain about is why my sporadic, non commital, once-every-other-week work out sesh isn't showing any results...geez, give a girl a break!)
--the heat. so. hot.
--watching too many 'guy movies'. let me clarify: a 'guy movie' is...blackhawk down, transformers, star trek, angels and demons, alice in wonderland, the guardian (okay...maybe just movies i don't want to watch)
--the fruit flies that seem to have 900 lives (really--i found one alive in the fridge yesterday...and another one flew out of the coffee container this morning)...maybe this complaint really is valid...
--my husband not wanting to spend every single waking hour with me. seriously. can you believe that?! sometimes he'll even stay an extra 15 minutes at the gym while i rush home and start supper. can you imagine someone not wanting to hang out with me every possible chance?
--our bed being too comfortable. it really is a problem, especially monday mornings when the last thing i want to do is get up.

alright...you've heard enough complaints from this department. what are some things you love to whine about? i know i'm not the only one... :) can't wait to hear!

The Guy movies are just fine. Let's not be hasty.

i like to whine about cleaning the house. it's always picked up --- but it just needs a good scrub down and a good dusting... i hate that part.
