I know that a bunch of you do a “what I’m loving Wednesday” post.
I am all about finding the positivity in things. I love uplifting posts that make me feel warm and fuzzy inside. And I like finding out new products that I should try and love just as much as everyone else.
However I don’t love everything. In fact, these things are absolutely driving me crazy.
I don’t love that it is 97 out with a heat index of 103, however it is FREEZING in my office.
Despite the fact that my skin wants to melt off if I step outside for longer than 3 seconds, we currently have a space heater on in our office. It’s been on every single day since we moved into the office. I look like a fool walking into work every day wearing jeans and donning a jacket. No one should have to wear jeans during the summer in Houston. And for the record, before anyone says that I live in Houston and should know it’s hot blah blah blah, it’s not the heat that bothers me. It’s that it’s so freaking cold in our office.
I don’t love Peanut Butter & Co. Cinnamon Raisin Swirl Peanut Butter.
I don’t like raisins. So why would I buy peanut butter that has raisins in it? I know, it makes no sense. I bought it because I am obsessed with cinnamon and with peanut butter and I was hoping that those two things would outweigh the raisins. I had no idea that it would come with a million and a half raisins in it.
Why am I bringing this up again, you ask? (Also, I just re-read that post, and I said almost word for word the same thing about the peanut butter, cinnamon, and raisins. If nothing else at least I am consistent). Because there is a jar of it sitting on my work desk. I tried to get myself to eat it by bringing it to work so I would have for a snack, but now I just pack a crapload of snacks so I won’t have to resort to that. #fail.
I don’t love the new season of True Blood.
I know Paula knows what I’m talking about. I have been a faithful True Blood watcher since the beginning. I tried my hardest to get involved in last season, but even then I wasn’t that enraptured with it. Then came this season.
WTF is going on!!
Aside from the fact that I will absolutely never turn down watching a show that harbors so many shirtless, good-looking men, I just can’t get into it. Considering Sean and I have been watching since the beginning, I feel like I am invested in the show and the characters. But it’s getting harder and harder for me to not gouge my eyes out during the hour that it’s on.
Except for this:
Are you kidding me!!! Gah, I die. I don’t even want to hear it if you don’t think he’s attractive, just keep that horrifying tidbit to yourself.
I don’t love that it took me TWO HOURS to get home from work yesterday.
On a bad day it takes me 45 minutes, mayyyybe an hour. Yesterday, however, there was a light out on Highway 6. I have to take Highway 6 all the way home. Anyone that lives in Houston knows what this means. It was the most brutal drive of my life. MY LIFE!! (not being overly dramatic, promisecrossmyheart.)
I came home in the WORST mood. Luckily I have a good husband who let me have a glass of wine and change the channel to watch an episode of What Not to Wear.
Then I yoga’d for 25 minutes and felt immensely better. Yoga + wine + girly TV = automatic mood booster.
And because I’m not going to make this post an entirely negative one, here is a a fantastic little yoga video on YouTube that everyone should do:
What are you not loving right now? I’d love to compare.
Also, any True Blood watchers out there? Thoughts?
