20 Things That Shouldn’t Be Difficult….

by Anne Paddock

Through the years, I’ve learned there is a difference between aggravations and problems. Most problems are really aggravations and most aggravations we encounter day-to-day shouldn’t be so difficult. Among them:

  1. Traveling with your pet (s)
  2. Packing light
  3. Talking to a live person on the phone
  4. Losing weight
  5. Filling out camp forms for the kids
  6. Filling out doctor forms that ask for the same information on four different forms
  7. Understanding your health insurance policy
  8. Deciphering the phone bill
  9. Predicting the weather for the next 48 hours
  10. Getting your kids to clean up their room
  11. Getting your kids and husband to hang up their coats and put their shoes away
  12. Convincing your teenager that you really do know more than her
  13. Getting old
  14. Convincing your husband to use a GPS
  15. Figuring out what to make for dinner
  16. Convincing your dog not to eat cat crap
  17. Stopping solicitors from calling on the cell or home phone
  18. Getting drivers to stop talking and texting on cell phones
  19. Convincing your kids to dress based on weather and that temperatures below 50 degrees require a coat. Rain requires a rain jacket and rain boots
  20. Convincing people to stop littering; having trash and garbage free roads and highways

There must be more but my brain is maxed out on this topic….
