The evolution of irritation
Why?

Why
-is the baby still awake?
-does the baby need so much care?
-does the baby sleep better in our bed?
-can't I have a moment alone?

Why
-doesn't my husband understand I'm tired?
-can't he see I'm busy?
-doesn't he understand I don't feel sexy?
-can't I have a moment alone?

Why
-does the 2 year old like those silly tv shows?
-is he always under my feet?
-does he watch everything I do and say?
-can't I have a moment alone?

Why
-do I have to spend my day driving my 8 year old around?
-do I have to keep up with everything he needs?
-does he want me to play basketball when I'm tired?
-can't I have a moment alone?

Why
-do I have to take my 15 year old shopping?
-do I have to constantly feed him?
-do I have to endager myself to teach him to drive?
-can't I have a moment alone?

Why
-does is he coming home with dirty laudry?
-do I have to pay his tuition?
-do I have to file his taxes?
-can't I have a moment alone?

Why
-does he live so far away?
-doesn't he ever call?
-doesn't he know I want to see the grandkids?
-has he left me alone?

Why
-is my husband so sick?
-is he alway so tired?
-are his tests getting worse?
-did he leave me alone?

Why
-am I alone for dinner?
-is there never anything on tv?
-is the bed so big?
-am I alone?
