Things I Rant About 📂

As my husband can attest to, I am prone to ranting.
  1. The amount of STUFF in our house
    Lots of it kid-related (toys, stuffed animals). I didn't expect "stuff manager" to be one of the hats I wear as a parent, yet here we are.
  2. The additional amount of stuff my mother-in-law brings to our house every time she comes over
    Despite me repeatedly asking her for years to please stop.
  3. Consumerism in general and the accompanying waste
    Where does all this cheap plastic shit go? Being in Costco makes me feel panicky, and I can't even think too hard about Target, as much as I love it.
  4. The fact that some people still don't recycle even though it's not that hard.
