If there are certain sounds that make me instantly irritable, clench my teeth and want to throat punch someone, it's hearing the non-stop lip smacking, licking, stomach squelching noises

The house was silent, I'm on my second cup of coffee.  I had checked emails and a couple accounts and sites I always check first thing.  I decided since the dogs were still being awesome and laying/sleeping quietly next to me in their beds and I could RELAX and just sip coffee and think, I'd open up a browser window and finally, type out a 'real' Coffee Talking post.

As I typed out the first words; "The house is quiet, Mr. Coffee is sleeping and the dog-----  that's as far as I got before my stupid ADHD dog suddenly sprung up and started her click click nail walk and slop slop mouth smacking behind me. SERIOUSLY!???

So much for being relaxed and quiet.  

Noise makes me tense up - and dog mouth smacking drives me crazy.  And since they are now 'awake' for the morning, their stomachs are now squelching (ready for breakfast soon) which is another sound I absolutely abhor!    If there are certain sounds that make me instantly irritable, clench my teeth and want to throat punch someone, it's hearing the non-stop lip smacking, licking, stomach squelching noises when I really, really want to just sit and breathe and mediate in silence over a mug of hot coffee in my hands.

The offending dog realized I was not going to jump up and start the day, and has now laid back down quietly so we'll see if I can manage to get a post out... but like usual, it's going to be random, typed quickly and NOT AT ALL like the well thought out and typed out posts I always intend when I come into the office.

No.  The moment is gone.

And now I just keep trying to 'rush' because I know they are waiting to go out, eat breakfast and start the day so I can't relax at all and am finding myself thinking 'hurry hurry!' Gah.
