4 things that irked me today

4 things that irked me today

Irk is a funny sounding word. It means to irritate, annoy, or exasperate. These are the things that irked me today. They also annoyed me and exasperated me.

  • What are you doing? H asks this question too many times during the day. After almost three years of retirement he should realize I “do things.” “I’m sewing.” “I’m working .” “I’m writing.” I’m doing something to this hair!” Really? Do I have to give an explanation every time?
  • Waiting on H to go to the gym. I think it was almost three pm when we finally went to the gym today. If I was working on my schedule, the gym would be first on my list, and then I could come home and get the rest of my day started. It seems I’m working on his schedule now.
  • Vrrroom Vrrroom! My house is not going to fall apart if I do not vacuum every day. When I least expect it, the vacuum cleaner starts up with H behind the wheel. Up and down the hall, under my chair, and in the corners as I’m trying to concentrate. Yes, I appreciate the help, but there is plenty for you to take care of in the yard. I think he is procrastinating that yard work.
  • Having my phone calls and texts ignored. I should be used to this by now. I don’t even remember why I called or texted Andrew so it must have not been an emergency. To be honest, he did answer one text, but when I replied back saying I had tried to call him twice, I received no acknowledgement. He’s a busy, busy guy!

Now that I’ve vented I should be feeling better. Right?
