Mosquitoes Are Driving Me Crazy!

We are finally getting a break from the rain. After 2 weeks of raining the sun is starting to shine again. Now we have to deal with the mosquitoes. They are huge! I guess they were not kidding when they said everything is bigger in Texas. What is driving me nuts about them is that every time I go outside it seems like 5 or 6 of them want to be my friend. Buzzing and flying around trying to get my attention and then suck my life's blood. Stand down buggies! I don't want your friendship!

The most annoying part of mosquitoes is the buzzing sound they make. My arms instantly turn into wild monkey arms as I swing them around trying to get them away from me. My daughter reminded me that when mosquitoes make a buzzing sound they are in love and are trying to harmonize with me.

Have you ever noticed that life is like those annoying mosquitoes? Small annoying things buzzing around trying to get your attention? The kids need to go to practice, dinner needs to be made, the clothes need to be washed, the yard needs to be mowed, the list goes on and on. At times it can be overwhelming! Maybe life's little mosquitoes are just trying to be in harmony with us. Maybe they are the small reminders that we need to solve a problem, fix a relationship, or just wash some clothes.

When you are feeling overwhelmed with the everyday routine of chores, school and life how do you cope?

Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting. When life gets annoying, I usually head out to play with two German shepherds. Sitting on a swing with them at my feet and a glass of sweet tea. That's what I do.
