Too many to list, mostly revolving around the fact that we're living with my parents. I've b*tched about them to you guys on a regular basis, lol.

repetitive noises....tapping on the walls...clicking of teeth...obnoxious toys.

tripping over sneakers when I walk through the door.....

my husband not cleaning out of the sink after he does the dishes

the boys seem to think that not flushing the toilet is suddenly cool all of a sudden....

the list goes on and I'm getting mad just thinking about it.

Just how cluttered everything is! Our apartment is really tiny and it just seems like everywhere I look there is crap. That and DH holds onto stuff forever and won't just donate it so that doesn't help the situation!! We need some serious organization in here!

I hate when hubby leaves dirty dishes on the counter. Why not put them in the sink?
I hate when hubby poops and pees all over the toilet. Why not clean it up?

I hate that my house is 106 years old and it seems like something is ALWAYS falling apart. The foundation is tilted, the bedrooms are tiny and we have close to no closet space. I also hate how small my yard it, I seriously wish it were bigger and that we had a fence so I could let the dog run around for longer than it takes him to go to the bathroom. I really hate that both of the large trees in my yard were dead and needed to be cut down. Oh yes, toys everywhere bother me a bit too, it's not the toys as much as it is my family members keep bringing over ancient toys that are broken or have missing parts.

My biggest pet peeve is cleaning it and my boys making a mess 10 minutes later. I like for everything to be in its place but that's impossible with DH, DS and a very active puppy! Lol

In general - I HATE repeating myself...DS is going through this phase where its in one ear and out the other and I have tell him stuff like "don't jump on the bed, don't this, don't that" over and over again. Ugh makes my eye twitch! And with DH, oi...so frustrating! He just doesn't listen sometimes and then tries to back track and says he did hear me but can't repeat what I just said. Blood boils just thinking about it! LOL

My biggest pet peeves are:
Not closing the laundry room door. The cat food and litter is in there. and if it is not closed, my dogs go in and have a hey day...
Leaving the toilet lid up, especially if kids didn't flush it.
And one sticky toilet flusher in my bathroom. Either it won't flush the first time I pull it up, or it stays stuck up and I have to push it back down, or the chain comes cocmpletely off and I have to stick my hand in the tank....

the only reason we live here is because the rent is cheap. i hate living so far away (we're out in the country so even just going grocery shopping is a 40 min drive) plus my family lives at least 35 minutes away. we don't have our own washer/dryer which sucks, esp. now having kids! it's a good size apt but now with having two kids i feel like the walls are closing in on us. im constantly rearranging/getting rid of stuff just to make room for new stuff.

My pet peeves about the house itself- it's old and barely insulated. We have one unit for heat and AC for a house that is too big. It's hot in the summer and cold in winter. The bathrooms are tiny. The joys of an old house- something is always needing to be fixed.

My pet peeves of my household- I hate the clutter. We have too much stuff

We have only one bathroom, which is just ridiculous for a family our size. It is a really old house (main part was log cabin from the 1880's, additions built in the 40's and in the 70's) so it has lots of issues for sure and often feels too small. But, we have 40 acres and get to live in the beautiful north woods.

The house itself? I hate the color of the walls and the darn carpet. I wake up every morning cursing my MIL cause the first thing I see is the ugly paint on the walls and then my feet touch this horrible carpet. I was in North Carolina when the husband bought our house and replaced the carpet and repainted and such, his mother is a realtor (a really crappy one) and she was helping clean the house and paint and stuff. Hubs and I looked over carpet and paint samples and I chose and we agreed on what color the walls were and what color and type of carpet. She was the one who went and ordered the carpet and the paint... instead of doing what we wanted, she did was she wanted because it would "re-sell" better in the future. SERIOUSLY? Even me being super clean freak, we will still have to repaint and re-floor when we sell, not to mention I wanted to put hardwood in anyways! I honestly have a festering rage when it comes to that woman.

Otherwise, it irks the CRAP out of me that the hubs puts his dirty hat and other things he carries around on the bar. It's one of the first things you see when you come into the house and I have some succulents and an Elvis pendulum clock arrange across the bar. He puts the mess there, I move it... he doesn't even use it but moves it back! I about pull my hair out because I'm seriously moving a hat, sunglasses, and one or two random items three or four times a day.

My biggest pet peeves about this house (which we'll be out of in two weeks) is that the kitchen is way too small, there's only one bathtub (in the hall bathroom), my stand up shower is TINY, and there is only one, tiny window in the living room.

Thankfully I only have to deal with it for 2 weeks and 2 days more at the very most. We are finally closing on our house on Thursday and then the seller has up to 14 days to gtfo...

We just started renting this house at the beginning of the month and, while it's a 3 bedroom, it's not exactly a big house. I think the most irritating thing is the bathroom. It's pretty narrow and being a big woman to begin with is bad enough, but now with my belly really starting to push out, it's getting harder to move in there. Also, the door to the deck is off the kitchen, and some genius put in an extra piece of counter. There's barely enough room for me to get between two pieces of counter to the door with my belly.

Otherwise, now that the SO is working and I'm not...he's not doing a freaking thing around the house. I understand, believe me. But sometimes I'd really like help with moving stuff around since there are still boxes and totes that need put away. He also refuses to put anything in the very nice attic for some stupid reason. UGH! Just because we've got three bedrooms with closet space does NOT mean the closets have to be full to the brim with crap we don't need until next winter!
