Writer's Workshop: Ten Things I Get Angry About

This is inspired by Mama Kats Writing Workshop~ See Link on Side!!! 

 Well there are so many things…but these are the ones that just popped into my head this morning!!!! 


1. people are selfish. 

2. people don't spend time with their animals and just keep them in the back yard. Of course the abuse 
    animals endure makes me mad too. 

3. people have all these babies than don't parent them. As a teacher this is my number one gripe.
    I see so many parents that are tired of parenting by time their kids gets to HS and they have 
    done a terrible job so far so their kid is a mess and they are at a loss of what to do…so they 
   do nothing and I have to handle it on my own. I could go on and on. ( BTW MOST parents 
   do a GREAT job!! It's the slackers I get upset about)    

4. people  don't take care of this financial or personal business and then ask for money. 

5. people don't take pride or take care of their homes or vehicles and leave them trashed and unkept. 
    They are so unappreciative. 

6.  people sit back and let the world happen to them and then wonder why they are the way they are.

7. people dwell in self-pity. 

8.  no one truly understands what it's like to do my job except other HS English teachers. 

9. I think of the way I've neglected my body for so long. 

10. people are ungrateful!!

I've completed almost a week of being back on Weight Watchers. It's been great because I'm not having any internal guilt. Only lots of hunger! Hunger for me means I'm loosing weight. I'm back to under 190 which is good. I feel I can continue this way again. Just getting past the first couple of weeks is hard. I'm wanting to bump up my workouts. Riding the bike once a week or so isn't near enough. This week my biggest battle was the weather. When I rode on Thursday, the temps were hovering between 95-100. It just seems to zap my strength, however I did it. Lots of people were out there, so I'm not letting heat stop me anymore. Just need to get past the nausea I tend feel when it's that hot. Lots going on today…will write about it later….
