Things that piss me off

  • Losing this post once and having to retype it!!! Augh!!!!
  • The fact that Kirkland brand diapers (that's the Costco brand) are the EXACT SAME PRICE as Huggies. What is the point? Shouldn't they be cheaper? I read online that they were like .17 versus .22! It's a big fat lie! Aaron did the math, and they came out to the EXACT SAME PRICE.
  • Wallpaper. And the fact that I have to remove it.
  • When my VOIP works such that I can hear the person talking perfectly, but they can't hear me. (the comcast guy came yesterday and it should be fixed now)
  • Dogs that take my nice, clean pillows off the couch and put their nasty, muddy faces all over them.
  • The same dogs that negate my kitchen floor cleaning by drinking water out of the dog bowl and getting the water everywhere. Dirty dog paws + water = mud foot prints. I will admit, that me caring about the cleanliness of the floor is a new thing - usually the floor gets cleaned every two weeks. But, thanks to Hulk crawling around the kitchen floor the other day and ending up with black knees I suddenly feel the need to keep the floors a little cleaner. I got a swiffer wet jet. Loves it.
  • Signing up for a stupid picture thing on my birth board where we have to take this damn stuffed animal we are sending around the country somewhere with our babies and take pictures. Finally remember to take the fucking pictures, post them on the birth board, and NO ONE COMMENTS. What is the point!!? Can I even tell you what a pain in the ass it was to take pictures of this stupid thing without Hulk tossing it in the water or eating it?!?! GAH. I finally sent the god damn thing onto the next person so it stops mocking me from the back seat of my car.

I know this post makes me sound cranky, and maybe I am - but we did have a great weekend. I just keep thinking of these little things that are annoying me and maybe posting them will make me stop thinking about them! I swear - the costco diaper thing happened a week ago and I'm still fired up about it.

Me too.

I dislike VOIP for that exact reason.

the BJ's (like cosco) diapers are cheaper than the real brands, but they are 8lbs to 14lbs, so they are a bit too big for my 9 1/2 lb man, so i hate them right now, but we'll see in a few more weeks!

diapers are crazy expensive!

Forgot to say i put a big rig of indoor/outdoor carpet under my dog bowls, and i use an elevated bowl that seems to help keep the water off the floor some what, but with boxers i know it's a big pain!

I noticed the same thing with diapers. We do a lot of bulk shopping at Sam's and even those bigger boxes of diapers aren't always a deal. We buy Luv's for the twins. (just a thought)

I too hate the dog water! I can't have my little girl in her swing while the dogs eat cause my shepard likes to put her food in there, annoys the crap outta me!

Oh and diapers I go to Sam's club to buy bulk and they no longer have the ones I like...might have to switch. Hope you feel better now.

We love bjs diapers, but they only have stage 2 so they won't work until the twins are older. bjs does have the pampers newborn swaddlers also that we used when Willow was born. the bjs diapers are 10$ cheaper than any other variety. We get them once a month.

Also be careful with the swiffer wet jet, I don't know if they changed the formula yet, but I know it was killing dogs, because they would walk on it and lick their paws and the formula was killing them. Be careful, i know you don't need this, but it might be worth checking out. Sorry for the bummer info.

Sorry the Swiffer Wet Jet is totally fine, the warning was debunked on Nothing to worry about.

You guys kill me (I've gotten some emails on this too). The Swiffer Wet jet killing dogs thing is a internet urban legand! Check it out

If normal household cleaners are ok for dogs - why wouldn't swiffer be?
