Some of the comments have started me wondering about frustration level associated with various things. What are some relatively common things that frustrate you and what are some less common things you do that work very well?
For example (since I'm not sure I explained myself very well), lots of mothers love to trade babysitting. It's a great system since it's fairly simple and doesn't cost anything. However, taking care of other people's children frustrates me enough that it's not worth it for me. Sewing is another thing that frustrates me- but only by machine.
On the other hand, I love to handsew. It's relaxing and easy for me. But I can assure you that when almost anyone hears that, they think it's odd, if not downright crazy. I also put my children to bed at 7:00. Most families don't put their children in bed this early, and I'm used to people thinking we're loony (do you spell looney with or without that "e"?) for doing it.
Anyway, I hope you get what I'm asking. What frustrates you and what works well?
