Works for Me Wednesday

This weeks edition is a little different.  I’m supposed to share what Doesn’t work for me.  I’m feeling lousy right now, so my list might include some whining.  My apologies. 

What doesn’t work for me..
1.  My homemade pizza dough never rises.  Could it be that I am just too impatient to wait for it to rise?  Maybe.  Or maybe I just like trying to stretch it to enormous lengths without making holes in it! 

2.  My husband going out of town for business and leaving me to single parent our 3 kids.  Why does he get to have great dinners out while we eat cereal and frozen chicken nuggets? 

3.  Transferring my photos from my digital camera card to the computer.  It’s not hard at all, but I just can’t seem to stay on top of it.

4.  Overcommitting myself.  It doesn’t work for me to say yes to so many things at the same time.

5.  Jason Castro’s hair.

6.  Much to my dismay, clipping coupons does not work for me.  I have a stack waiting to be clipped right now. 

7.  Relying on my kids to pick up after themselves.  Is it really too much to ask? 

8.  Losing weight and exercising.  I’m personally not comfortable with my weight, but I think my body is.  It keeps going back to it’s comfortable weight.  Could it be the chocolate addiction? 

9.  Not having a meal plan doesn’t work for me.  If I don’t have one, I’ll start thinking about what’s for dinner around 5 pm, or when someone asks me that question…” what’s for dinner”? 

10.  This ear infection doesn’t work for me.  The ringing is driving me crazy and I can’t even think.

If you’ve made it this far, Thanks!  For more insightful ideas, please visit Rocks In My Dryer.


  1. Oh, I can relate to so many things on your list. I hope you are feeling better soon and your husband arrives home earlier than expected!
