pushing rope


one of my favorite phrases for that feeling like you just can't get anything accomplished is "pushing rope." it comes from my internship suprvisor's husband.

some of my other favorite phrases for those times when things feel futile:

goat roping
cat herding

goat roping comes from hubby. typically the statement follows an episode of particular frustration and goes somethin' like this: "what a goat rodeo!"

i'm not sure about cat herding, except that i've owned cats and they are impossible to corral.

God's peace y'all

I have picked up Goat Rodeo from the Tom Cat. It's a great phrase ~ especially when my other favorite "cluster f***" is inappropriate (like now.) :)

Wow. I must really love you. Have I *ever* censored that word when a small child wasn't involved?

OMG ~ My word verification is pphuk. I kid you not. I'm even trying to be good, here!

When it's truly useless, I've heard the term "yelling at grass" use. Please feel free to adopt it!

"and vivian followed."
