My life can be broken down pretty simply:
O.C.D. moments - I don't have enough Obsessive Compulsive Disorder moments when cleaning my house. These are the moments in life when perfect just isn't good enough. They usually segue quickly into PMHOAC (pulling my hair out and crying) moments.
T.M.I. moments - Over-sharing, or Too Much Information causes these. You know, those moments that make you wish there was a scrubbing bubbles for the brain? I'd say about 1/3 of high school fits in there... MANY conversations... and yes, probably a few of your blog posts... and mine.
N.M.P. moments - Things I can't do anything about - or Not My Problem moments. It's not always as snarky as it sounds (though it sometimes is JUST what it sounds like)... it's the times when I have to just admit that I'm not all powerful. I can do nothing when the power goes out... even if it's in the middle of my son's hard fought attempt to finally beat the boss on the latest video game. Sometimes these moments are frustrating for those around me, but I've found it very helpful to know when it's time to allow a higher power to deal with something I can't.
W.T.H. moments - What the Heck moments are sometimes confused with TMI moments - but they are not the same thing at all! WTH moments can include being amazed at the tenderness of a child or admiring beautiful scenery... Generally these are good appreciating the world around me moments.
S.O.S.O. moments - Same Old Same Old Moments - the rest of it... the "haven't I done this a million times already" moments. Laundry, Dishes, Arguing with my 10 year old about his school work... It would be nice to have fewer of these, but they seem to be a necessary evil.
