My get-up-and-go has got-up-and-went due to a variety of reasons. The cold weather and the 3 ½ feet of snow we have on the ground is too deep to go sledding because it actually stops the sleds, and too much of a chore to walk in. We left the house at 6:30 yesterday morning and returning at 4:00 yesterday afternoon-we spent four hours sitting in the car and four and a half hours sitting at my daughter’s gymnastics meet. Since we haven’t had school since last Tuesday and every night feels like a Friday night, I have been staying up later and later but still getting up at the same time because my kids don’t sleep in. And I haven’t had a decent workout in a while-it’s an endless cycle because I have no energy for exercise, and because I am not exercising, I have no energy…
Now onto some of my newfound beliefs and reflections:
The dog is just like us-what goes in must come out- the coming out usually follows the going in, so someone needs to “get him out” so we don’t have any special surprises.
Why am I getting white hair only on the left side of my head? Does the left side age faster than the right if you’re right brained?
Maybe I am a little funny when it comes to bathroom etiquette, but I feel the door should be shut when you are doing your business-I also don’t want to know what you’re doing in there, so don’t ask me to “come see…”
And speaking of the bathroom, what comes up must come down, and in this case I am referring to the toilet seat!
My daughter’s resemblance to her aunt is almost uncanny-we’re talking everything from appearance to personal habits, and because this was the one sister I fought with constantly when I was younger, it’s driving me crazy because in an odd sort of way I am still fighting with her!
The living room couch is made for sitting, but why is your stuff“setting” there?
Soap and water are your friends-come let’s get reacquainted.
The dog doesn’t know the difference between your stuffed animals and his stuffed toys, so your stuffed monkey paid the ultimate sacrifice. (We can get a replacement eye in the craft store I’m sure…)
Well, that's enought sage'ness for one evening. Besides, I have to round up the kids and get them to bed. Goodnight everybody!
