:: i became an adult this year. i like coffee. a lot. and i don’t even have to add a pack of hot chocolate mix to it to enjoy it anymore. i’m always cold and it makes me warmmmmmmm.
:: but if i do add hot chocolate to coffee, i also add kahlua. its called a hot chahlua. you should try it.
:: but maybe don’t try it in the morning, as tempting as it may be. it probably better as an afternoon drink ;)
:: along with becoming an adult, my head became an old lady. bajillions of grey hairs. i’ve had a box since october to highlight my hair myself because i’m on the cheap bus, but i’m so afraid i’ll make things even worse.
:: so i just complain and gasp every morning. like its the first time i ever noticed it.
:: i did this so much that i finally bit the bullet and went back to getting it professionally done. and i love it!
:: i have an 8 year old. eight! well, actually 8 7/8, but who’s counting, besides her? and she is so growing up in such a little person kind of way. she laughs at my jokes, rolls her eyes, and her favorite thing to do is “hang out downtown with our family”. i’m in love with her. she’s pretty fabulous. even when she drives me nuts.
:: after 8 years (8 7/8 years) of parenting, i still have no idea what i’m doing.
:: i get annoyed when people don’t use their turn signals.
:: i feel like i’m going to fall out of the car if i don’t have my seatbelt on. like the door is going to fly open at any moment and out i’ll go.
:: i’m wearing a sweatshirt right now that i stole from my husband before he was my husband.
:: lily has been waking up 3-4 times a week with growing pains. bawling hysterically. tylenol, massage, warm cloths… nothing works. except prayer. tried that and she was knocked out in 10 seconds. no joke. why did i take so long to do the sensible thing?!
:: silas told me a joke last night: “mama, what did the bunny say to cross the road?” me: “what?” si: “ribbit ribbit!!!” me, laughing: “why did a bunny say ribbit?” silas: “because its a joke, mama!” i was dying! toddler jokes are quite possibly the funniest jokes ever, being so nonsensical and all.
:: when i make to-do lists and i’m checking things off, and i do something extra thats not on my list, i’ll write it down and cross it off, just to make myself feel better!
:: since doing wiww posts for so long now, i feel guilty on the days that i stay in my jammies or sweats all day!
:: if i ask my kids to do their chores, here are their reactions: one will drop to the floor and whine (as if said child doesn’t get asked to do those chores every.single.day.). the other will cheerfully agree to do them, but quickly get distracted by… anything that crosses her path. and the 3rd child, she will have already done most of her chores before i even ask her to (big fat puffy heart this!).
:: i went for a run today. and no one was chasing me! my motivation? i saw some cute running pants at forever 21 for $8 and thought they’d motivate me to run again. it worked. sean said he’ll buy me a new pair of running pants everyday to keep me motivated ;)
:: i don’t suggest watching private practice in the middle of the day (especially not if you have kids around – sheesh!). i did it today while cutting fabric and i was choking back the tears!
:: when i’m getting into bed, i can’t stand too near the bedskirt and have to kinda jump into bed. if i didn’t, the boney creepy hand from under my bed will grab my ankle, right? or am i the only crazy one?
:: i decided a month or so ago to repaint my guest bath. after 2 bad yellows, i’m deciding on my 3rd choice. the bathroom looks like sunshine and mustard threw up on the walls. yellow is hard to get right! and i’m still searching for a good rug in there…
:: tomorrow marks 5 years of blogging for me! if i didn’t fear a revolt of wiww participators, i’d think of something special to do. at least thats my easy excuse for coming up with nothing creative yet!
