Moaning on Monday


I was inspired by Jodi’s venting and decided to have a slightly different version of Five on Friday. One that I have decided to call Moaning on Monday. Instead of the things I’m liking this week, this is the stuff that is bumming me out.

1.) Jon & Kate + 8. Tonight’s season premiere of Jon & Kate + 8 season 5 was sooo sad! For those of you that don’t know, rumors have been flying that the couple is separated, that Jon is cheating, etc., etc. For the longest time, I simply dismissed all of these rumors. I always try to think the best of people, and always believe that things will turn out alright in the end. After tonight’s show, I’m sad to say my optimism is gone. The two of them already talk like they are divorced and neither of them really seem like they are even willing to fight for their marriage. The two are clearly separated, and it doesn’t seem like that is going to change any time soon. It broke my heart tonight when little Alexis was talking to her daddy, and telling him she missed him, and said, “Daddy, I don’t want you to go away any more.” I know it is a reality TV show, and maybe I shouldn’t care so much, but it just kills me to see two people who once seemed so happy and so in love, to show such indifference for one another now. I’m praying that they can work things out!

2.) Movies these days. It’s like they don’t even make good movies anymore; even the few recent ones that were decent had horrible endings. In the last two movies I watched, either the main character or the main character’s love interest dies. Please don’t spend two hours making me feel attached to this character and then just kill him/her off. I’m not for this she grew as a person, and should be glad she had the experience crap. Whatever happened to happily-ever-after???

3.) Kroger’s Slimfast bars. Our local Kroger’s has been out of my Slimfast bar boxes for week’s now. How long does it take to realize you are out of stock? Wal-mart would never let something like this happen! Even if they don’t have a fancy barcode system like Wal-mart, how has no one noticed the big hole in the Slimfast section where the cookie dough bars belong?

4.) Allergies. I have lived with allergies for most of my life. I took shots for several years (which did me no good), I have prescription pills, nose sprays, and eye drops. I’m not really sure if it is because I have been running outside so much or if it is just something about the weather right now, but I have been pretty miserable for the last couple of days. My eyes just burn and itch all the time and no amount of eye drops or medicine seem to help.
