Things I’ve Learned This Week

** It should totally count as a workout if you run around like crazy all day (especially if you’re dressed in full workout gear).

** I could come home with a purple mohawk, and no one in my family would even notice.

** Some people evidently like to shop in their nightgowns.  Who knew?

** My daughter equates me brushing her hair with Chinese water torture.

** I wish somebody would send ME to an “undisclosed location for rest and relaxation.” Just sayin’.

** Lemonade stands are a serious pain in my ass.

** It’s awesome when my husband’s ridiculously loud alarm clock wakes up everyone in the house EXCEPT my husband.

** I suppose these kids really do expect me to feed them every day.

** Watching a hawk stalk a chipmunk is pretty freaking cool, especially if you’re not a big fan of chipmunks.

** Pop-up ads can suck it.

** It’s yet another reminder of the sad, sick world we live in when your third grader tells you about the lock down they practiced at school in case of a “shooter.”

** “Taking a shower” seems to be way too low on the list of “Things To Do” lately.

** I feel so loved when my kids tell me they think they’re allergic to me.

** Despite what I might think, God does not give me more than I can handle.

    Yeah, my kid had a lockdown drill this week too. I think. The days are all running together. When my oldest had his first lockdown drill, he was in kindy. And because it was Colorado and didn’t want to scare the youngest kids, they called it a Bear Drill. What to do in case a freaking bear moseys into the school. ::headdesk:: Kid was convinced that a bear would terrorize the school. Oy.

    Omg you are hiliarious! Found your blog from link on parenting by dummies. Love it!
    And I can totally relate to the husbands alarm and the bed collapsing for no reason. I would not have minded so much had there been a reason. I felt cheated somehow. 🙂
