I don't get it...

The things that get stuck in my brain or just stuff that bugs me.

I don’t get why you don’t work on the inside? You have work done, your eye shadow gets in the room before you and where are you going in that outfit??? After years of working in the mental health field and multiple classes in psychology I can tell you a little introspective look would do you a world of good. Let the real you show.

I don’t get what happens when you drive in a parking lot?!? I know it’s not a road but come on!!! Do you really need to drive that fast and across the isle way???? Let’s think people. There are other drivers too. Show some courtesy it might make you feel good too to be nice to other drivers. Go figure.

I don’t get why I care what you think. I know we have little in common but I’ve tried to be your friend. Yet that gets me nowhere. I still get nervous around you, I still feel like you think very little of me. Yet I worry about what you think. Why? I have awesome friends. Some really kick ass friends. I don’t need your approval.

I don’t get why there is always a mess here???? I can spend the whole day cleaning and then I turn around and bam. Mess. Everywhere. Oh wait, I have 3 kids. That’s why. Will my house ever be clean????
(Don’t even want to get started on the laundry saga. It’s caught up for like 10 minutes then I‘m behind again.)

I don’t get why we are so hard on each other. Being a Mom is a hard job. Why be judgmental of how another Mom is doing her job??? Hell, for that matter, being part of the human race can be a hard job. Why are we so hard on each other? A little support goes a long way. So with that said. I commend you for getting out of bed today and facing the world. I know you are doing the best you can to get through the day and more power to ya!

However.... I don't get why you need to complain about your kid(s)??? They are good kids... just kids. Stop complaining and be thankful for what you have!

I don’t get why family is so hard to be honest with? Why can’t we just tell each other how we really feel? Why is there a double standard? Why is it Ok for you to do what works for you but when I do what works for me I should have checked with you first??? What the…? This is why they call friends the family we get to choose.

I don’t get why you reach out to me and then drop me like a hot potato? If you reach out I will be there. That’s just who I am. I will get your back. I’m a caregiver, protector, and a fighter. If you say you need me I’m there. Hey, where did ya go???? I’m still here. Are you OK???

Hey that reminds me... YOU. What the heck makes you think you can be so cruel and then out of nowhere you want to pop back in and be all nice ~ nice and I should just let you into my life. NO WAY.

I don’t get why you think yelling at your dog or you kid to be quiet is a good idea. They are not listening to you. Your dog is still barking and now I hear you yelling on top of that. Your kid is still screaming in church. And now I hear you Shhhing him too. But he’s still yelling.

I don’t get how you can walk past those socks 15 times and not see them???? PICK THEM UP!

I don’t get why it takes me so long to post something new sometimes. I get on a roll and have a post every couple of days and then where do I go??? It takes me a week or more to get something new for you to read. Thanks for hanging in there…. sorry.

Now is your chance to get it off your chest.
What don’t you get????

Go ahead let it out.

As you are the mental health professional I gather all this "venting" was ... good for you.

A bit scary to read though. I hope you are less "stressed out" now.

I too, find the petty irksome things in life accumulate until I scream and figuratively shake my fist (and literally wave my middle finger). I don't want to be that way. Is it that there are just TOO many people with too many stupid things that they do? Or the ones that somehow think they are entitled to things without having to work at all?

This is almost too heavy for a monday morning... but hey.. I care.

I don't understand any of this either, although I have to say that my friends can be just as bad as my family. I'm glad I'm moving so I can be more selective next time! ;)

I don't like those judge-y type friends either. Let's dump 'em.

Ummmmm... wow! You needed to let that out, huh? I am good at that on my blog, sometimes. Isn't funny how our heads get filled with things. Sometimes our heads tell us one thing and it may or may not me the correct thing. I am constantly fighting that.

Okay, and while I don't believe I am one of these spoken of in your post... I have my fingers crossed that I am not!

I have lots of I don't gets (I should blog them); but Z has piano and I am not as brave as you...

HA! You have me laughing. I love that there's someone else with some of the same I don't gets ...

My I don't get for the day - after driving 2+ hours on turnpikes and interstates just to go to work - Are you all really in that much of a hurry? Perhaps getting up 2 minutes earlier would have given you a little more time to not put our lives in danger ...

Thanks Girl!

Oh man the socks I hear you on that one! That and laundry, I so need to understand how come I'm the only one that can put them away!

UGH I actually stopped talking to a "friend" that sounded just like that!
