There's a whole gaggle of them hanging out in the back pasture and well...never mind, this could get graphic. They make me crazy!

That can be disconcerting. It's still weird seeing Lil Sis as a college student. Fortunately she has the occasional childish meltdown to remind me she's got a bit more maturing to do.

We have to learn to laugh at those type of people, preferably in their faces. I bet if you'd called her on it she'd have done enough verbal back-pedaling to kick up foam. People, myself included, are prone to say the first thing that comes to their mind no matter how illogical or unnecessary. That's why everyone here likes me so much better than in my non-virtual life: easy access to the delete key.

Yesterday I was wearing a pair of size 14 pants to work, and I was really excited to be in a smaller size. I told my "friend" about my pant victory and she said "yeah, but they're stretchy." emoticon WTH!!!! I will admit they did have some stretch to them but they were dress pants (kind of like Dockers) not track pants and they weren't pulled skin tight just to feed my ego by fitting into a smaller size. Some people!!!!

We have squatters in my office. I don't know how women do that. And I certainly don't understand why they don't look behind them to wipe up the splatter. Those that use the seat covers aren't much better. Half the time they don't get flushed and again, if someone doesn't look behind them, the next person that tries to use the stall is greeted with a seat covered in soggy paper.

Ick!!

Don't even get me started. I'm convinced people lose thirty IQ points as soon as they step into a public bathroom.

Give you a for instance. The johns at work have receptacles in every stall, holding paper bags for used sanitary products. There is a sign on each receptacle instructing that the sealed bags be put in the garbage. Twice in the past month, I've walked into stalls, only to find toilet paper wrapped pads deposited right on top of the bin. Can you say ewwww?

You know what's dampening my tush today? Poorly callibrated automatic flushing toilets!

Something about toilet water getting splashed on me just creeps me out. As does the rush of air that comes with the flush. And something about my black skirt today has sent the toilets into a tizzy. They flush when I'm sitting but not when I stand up. I have to keep flushing the button.

ERGHHH!!!!!

That's too funny. I had a friend in middle school that would chew her gum with her lips open. Then she'd get mad when I suggested it wasn't a very attractive thing to do.

I think people get used to seeing you at a certain weight and so to be significantly smaller takes a while to catch up.

Or occasionally you get petty people who are jealous of your accomplishments and try to twist it into something negative.

Either way, if you feel good and healthy, the doc says you're healthy, and you can't tap out a tune on your ribs, other people can mind their own business =P

Current annoyance: There is room across the road from our house for people to park. People frequently pull up there in the mornings around work-commute time. It unfortunately puts them right in line with the window to the room where my treadmill is where I walk. I can't tell if they're being creepers or trying to steal wireless internet.

KiwiFish goes rawr.

That sounds totally frustrating Cincy. I hope that you have a great weekend.

Today's thing that made me crazy is people telling me I'm getting too thin. Ok seriously people I have spoken with my doctor and he said as long as I maintain between 115 and 120 lbs he is not concerned with my weight and health. My BP is good, I am no longer suffering from the after affects of my ulcer from last year and I feel GREAT! So lay off already. Today and yesterday a combined total of 6 people have mentioned how thin I am and half of them expressed a lot of concern over how "very thin" I've gotten.

Ok I'm done. For the record I am only 5'3" tall so my current weight of 117-118 lbs is well with in a healthy range.

The travel industry is making me crazy today, particularly the airlines. Our office travel messed something up and I had to change my plans so I don't get the full afternoon off because I'm afraid that my bosses travel will get messed up by the airlines and we'll have to change his meeting schedule. I can't remember the last time he simply stepped on a plane at the scheduled time, arrived at the other end, then returned on time. Every trip he's taken has had at least one flight get delayed, rescheduled, or otherwise messed up, usually due to the airlines. It's crazy that they can do this and stay in business. And my PERSONAL plans get messed up because they can't run a schedule.

And for the record, I have a great boss who did not ask me to rearrange my plans. I just can't risk the airlines messing him up and leaving my back-up to deal with the mess.

-Rant over-

I'm so ready for the weekend!

I don't have kids. I'm not going to pretend I know how to raise one. I know enough to see that it's hard. But so many parents seem to focus more on their kids feelings or their own 'me time.' At least the ones you notice in public. My hats off to those that manage to navigate between exposing their kids to appropriate public behavior while allowing them to be kids. We rarely notice the well-behaved kids.

That is a sore spot for me too. Working with small children, I have seen a shift in the family dynamic. In so many families now the kids make the decisions. The kid wants to do something or wants something and the parents give in rather than fight the fight. I'm a firm believer in picking your battles, this goes much further than that. It drives me crazy to be in a store and see a child having a tantrum and the parent buying them something to get them to stop. I just want to yell at them "Your rewarding bad behavior!". I've had kids in my class who hit their parents, are allowed to run free wherever they are, and eat whatever whenever they want. I fear for the future sometimes. emoticon

Dawn, Sorry about the disruption to your kids recital. I'm with you. I'd say parents that don't control their kids in public drive me crazy. Maybe it's because I don't have kids of my own, or maybe it's because the people I've watched kids were exceptional, but I have high expectations of how parents handle their kids in public. It's not about letting kids be kids, or excusing their behavior because they are young and energetic, it's a teaching experience. They need to learn there are certain ways to behave in certain places. Unfortunately their parents don't usually know that themselves.

On the other end of the spectrum, old folks can be a problem too. We took my great aunt to a piano recital, thinking that as a musician she might enjoy it. She put her hands over her ears and starting whining about how awful it was and it was hurting her ears. Mom had to take her out to the car. I felt so bad for the little kid who was playing at the time.

People who don't control their children at recitals (youngest one had choir tonight and I was not happy) especially when at the beginning it is asked that if your child can't sit still or is loud to take them out in the hallway. The poor video guy is going to have a hell of a time editing the two nights into one DVD.

That certain people in my house can't find anything. They just ask where it is and then expect me to go get it. Even if I tell them exactly where it is, they can't find it. I think they are just lazy and don't want to look.

The body's capacity for retaining weight, be it in the form of food or water, never ceases to amaze me. That's why I always tell myself it doesn't matter what the scale says today. It's about what it says today in relation to what it said yesterday and last week.

Hang in there Casusk. It's most likely a lot of water weight and a few days of cardio and salads will chase it away.

That answer didn't even come from an official Spark coach. The official comment was 'we'll pass on your concerns' which is all I expected. I don't know why someone else decided to jump in and tell me Spark is losing money so I should deal with it.

And where the heck would someone get the idea the site is losing money? With the exponential increase in ads over the year since I joined, and the book and the food and clothing tie-ins, if the site is losing money then they need a better business model.

Advertising. Ads drive me nuts and are currently poisoning my Spark experience. It's one thing to have the normal sidebar ads. It's an entirely different thing to advertise unhealthy foods to me IN MY FOOD TRACKER. I vented on the site message board, saying I'd rather pay than deal with that type of advertising, and some random person essentially tells me to suck it up because the site is losing money.

What really erks me is that although I avoid ads on every other site I've ever visited, I've actually clicked on a few here, just to support the site. I even bought something after one of those click-throughs. Granted, it was on my list anyway, but I wanted Spark to get the credit. But I'm rewarded by nasty, invasive ads for foods I'm supposed to be avoiding, and those ads are in the middle of my food tracker, which is a mess to begin with.

This is the dark side of my dorky personality. I get WAY bent out of shape over these kinds of things. The saddest part is if it gets worse, I'm giving up Spark. It will eat away at me too much to have to see those type of ads all over the place.

I cannot make myself be thin today, but I CAN be healthier by making a few smart choices. I focus on what needs to be done today and tomorrow takes care of itself.

That drives me nuts too Casusk.

It drives me crazy when other people in the house can see a blanket that belongs folded on the couch is on the floor or stuffed under the couch.

people who say "I bet you love it when he grills, you don't have to cook." Do they not see that even though my husband is grilling meat I still have to fix all the sides and prepare the table? That's like saying he put a new roll of toilet paper in the bathroom so I don't have to clean it. emoticon

I agree Dawn TMI (too much information) is not appreciated. It's ok to share some stuff with your besties, but I don't need to hear about my employers weekend escapades. emoticon

I hate that too my co-worker likes to "share" his weekend adventures (he is recently seperated and acts like a college boy when he is 30 so you can guess what most of his weekend consists of and it really isn't anything I need to know).

I also hate when my kids get argumentative over what they are supposed to be doing (like dishes).

ARRRRGGGHHH I hate that to Pru. And when people won't let you finish a sentence because they want to change the subject to something about them. I'm all about sharing your thoughts and experiences but why be so insecure that they have to have all the conversations be about them? One of my "friends" does this so much me and my other friends almost dread girls night with her.

having to lose weight that I've already lost once. I'm kind of mad that all of my weight loss last month was just losing what I had gained back at Christmas. I could have been even smaller now if I hadn't have went nuts over the holidays. I'm using this for motivation now. I don't want to lose the same 20 pounds over and over!

I think she is a loser! I have a person like that at work. Any time I say anything about weight, she goes into the fact that she has lost so much weight that her clothes are falling off of her, only thing is that they are all so tight you don't notice that they are falling down. I have another on at work that tells you that she never eats, yet can ride a an exercise bike for 90 mins everyday!!!! So yeah the world is full of stupid people!

The people that can't be nice. I have a "friend" who even though everyone has noticed I'm losing weight, insists I need her hand me down clothes. Not the ones that are too small for her, the big ones. Oh did I mention she was 3 sizes bigger than me before I started losing weight and hasn't gotten any smaller? I don't know why she does this. It's not just weight issues either. She constantly makes snide comments about the type of work I'm doing even though we work at the same place and have the same title. WTH? emoticon

I may have to start employing that method of correction when my girls start in with the name calling and such. You are right nothing brings the point across like them losing money.

Thanks guys, today was better with them. I've started charging them a dime everytime I hear them say Shut up or Stupid. I've made 30 cents so far. Nothing brings the point home for them like losing money.

I know we talked about bad drivers earlier, but today the sister wars are driving me crazy. The words "shut up" and "stupid" are not my favorite words, I don't really like to use them at all. So why do these girls insist on driving me so crazy that I have to use them both in one sentence? "Shut up, you are both acting so stupid!" Needless to say we are all having a time out. emoticon
