I Just Can’t Stop…

  1. licking the beaters even though there are raw eggs in the batter.
  2. blowing on my kids’ food to cool it down, even though their dentist said I would pass along my germs and give them cavities. (Hasn’t happened yet!)
  3. checking on my kids at night to make sure they are still breathing. (They always are.)
  4. checking my email throughout the day, even though I know I won’t have anything but junk mail.
  5. eating a bowl of ice cream before I go to bed, even in the dead of winter. Think of all the weight I could lose!
  6. worrying about something. I can always make up something, even if there’s absolutely nothing to worry about. I drive my husband crazy.
  7. spying on my neighbors and making up stories about them. It’s more entertaining than “reality” TV.
  8. reading the comics in the newspaper. I’m addicted to Brenda Starr Reporter.

Why is it that…

  1. when you have a hairdresser’s appointment, you’re having a good hair day?
  2. you feel perfectly healthy when you are sitting in an exam room on a piece of paper lining an examination table with only a gown on, the thermostat reads fifty degrees, and just that morning you thought if you didn’t get in to see the doctor you were going to die?
  3. your children sleep late when you have to get somewhere in the morning, but they’re up at 5:30 am on Saturday?
  4. you fix your toddler’s favorite food for dinner, only to find out it was her favorite food yesterday?
  5. when you’re running late, there’s always a super, duper, ooper, slooper long freight train? (with apologies to Sid the Science Kid)
  6. when you finally get to lie down for a nap since for once your little ones are napping at the same time, the tornado siren starts blaring, forcing you to get out of bed and grab the children to go to the basement? This happened twice when Emmy was a newborn. The second time I was heading down the stairs when all of a sudden a wind shear came through and scared me to death. The electricity went out, and I later heard the winds were blowing at 80 mph. We were without electricity for 26 hours, which was nothing compared to some people who had no electricity for a week!
