Would you like some cheese with that whine?

I feel a bit like complaining today. So you my most wonderful friends get to read about it. I didn't wake up in a complaining mood. I really didn't I woke up in a happy mood. But you know how sometimes you think maybe you should have just stayed in bed? Well that would be today.

My allergies are acting up and my nose is running like crazy. So the natural result of that is that I had to blow my nose. What isn't normal about the situation? I just blew my nose in a coffee filter.  That is right you heard me. I was desperate I tell you, absolutely desperate. So how did this absolute craziness come about?

Let me ask you a question. Do you have kids in your house? If so, do you go through a TON of toilet paper?  If so, do they tell you when they grab the last roll? Because mine don't.  So let me back up and start with climbing out of bed.

I get out of bed and first thing I do is head to the bathroom. Thank you God I noticed before I sat down there was no TP. So I go to the laundry closet where I keep it. I know I just bought a new pack a few days ago. I am mumbling to myself about how no one ever replaces the roll when it is empty and how rude that is. I open the closet door and right were the TP should be is an empty Charmin wrapper. Not only did who ever took the last roll not tell me but they left the packaging behind and didn't even bother to throw it away.  Okay I am annoyed but I know I have tissues so it isn't the end of the world.  So I go grab the tissues. 3. I count them 1. 2. 3. Three tissues left in the box. *Sigh* Okay I do what I need to and now there are 2. The general store doesn't open till 8 am so I have an hour until I can go buy tissues and TP. Surely we can make it an hour I mean the kids are still asleep right now.

So I go in the kitchen to make coffee. I get everything out. I start the coffee. And as I start to put the coffee and filters away I have a sneezing fit. And then I need a tissue. 2. There are two left. I don't want to use them what if someone needs them before 8. My nose is running. I turn around and reach for a paper towel. None. Who used the last of the paper towels? And left the paper towel roller instead of throwing it away I might ad. But anyway I go to the pantry (nose running) to get another roll of paper towels. No paper towels.

So I do the only thing I can do. I grab a coffee filter and blow. So now I am sitting here waiting for 8 am so I can go get TP, tissues, and paper towels. But here is the my complaint. I was at Walmart last night! I could have  bought all of this last night! If only, if only people would tell me when we are ALMOST out of shampoo, toothpaste, deodorant, TP, tissues, paper towels, water filters, water softener salt,  and about 100 other consumables around here I wouldn't have to make 40 trips to the store each week and blast it all I wouldn't have to blow my nose on coffee filters just in case someone wakes up to go potty before the store opens at 8.



  1. ERRRRR...the empty wrapper. I find those all the time under the sink. Drives me nuts. May you get your TP and tissues, quickly!

  2. Yikes! I was at Wal-Mart last night, too, and missed you. We must be on the same shopping schedule (read here at Wal-Mart way too often) :-)
