Join Us in Despair

You know when you were a kid and your diary was full of angst and woe-is-me-ness? That is what this blog is for. Lost your job, dog is sick, someone stole your parking spot, crashed your car, just generally glum? This is the place to put all that lovely grey and those long drawn out sighs.

Lists of sad songs. Depressing movie reviews. Top ten reason to stay in bed. All things not happy. Bring them here.

Are you sick, are you tired? Have you been sick & tired for a year? Share it here. Unhappy, gloomy, dismal, down in the dumps, miserable only. Did you have a bad day, a month... share. Not that tragedy and despair can't be funny, contributors are welcome to make their posts goofy, witty, laugh-out-loudable, just not happy or upbeat.

Would you like to be part of the DD&D project? Do you have a sad story, a rant, a poem of a lost love? Join us as a contributor.

Agitated with my agitator

I'm forever doing laundry in this home with four males; my husband and the three little men (oh...okay, and me too...I make dirty laundry too). So, it wasn't unusual for me to begin the day with a load of washing. What was unusual was that I noticed the agitator inside was almost as if it was trying to trick me into believing that it was getting the job done. The noise was right, it sounded like it was working properly. It was moving, too; but it wasn't completely turning.

I've noticed it slipping now and then but not like this morning, it was hardly turning at all. {SIGH} I am, sharing my devastation with you:
Yes, I am AGITATED with my agitator!

Oh, I can sooooo relate. I hate laundry with a burning passion. And for about 3 months our dryer has been barely drying. Takes three times as long as it should.

"Please Hubby, take a look, see what is wrong."

"Ok," is always his reply, and yet, my clothes are still damp.

Laura Jane!! Wow, it's your alter ego! Just stumbled across your other blog. What a treat to see that even nice people like you have their "dark" side as well....

Somehow it makes you more human.
