It is the little things that drive me crazy, ya know?
Take the following things I have complained about (at least in my heart) within the last few weeks:
-The sun is so bright and I forgot my sunglasses on the table at home. Squinting is so annoying and will probably give me a headache and more wrinkles, that skin around my eyes is so unforgiving.
-My internet has not been streaming videos quickly and occasionally stops to buffer. *GASP*
-Macy’s didn’t have my size in the exact boot I wanted, I will either have to go to another store, order it online, settle for another pair of boots or skip new boots altogether.
-Our automatic door on our minivan is not working properly, again.
-Walmart stopped carrying my favorite brand of hummus, the only brand they carried with 100% olive oil. Huge bummer.
A few weeks back I was talking to Jon on the phone and was telling him my predicament-that I didn’t have quite the right “genre” of shoes for my outfit. He laughed and said, “Ames, this sounds like a first world issue”. Humph. Sigh. Long pause…should I be mad? I sat there for another three seconds and then I laughed too.
Since then, God has brought these words to my head often as I find myself getting worked up and bugged and I must say, it has been good for me and my contentment level!
While in Phoenix, Seth showed us this youtube clip that I thought was GENIUS and kind of sad as the irony hits.
