My Boys

Important Statistics

Tag You're It...No Tag Backs

I was tagged by the fabulous Margie to list my 6 favorite unimportant things. Here goes in random order.

1. My crockpot...how do I love thee, let me count the ways. Love that I can throw food in the crockpot before work and come home and dinner is done!

2. Hummus. Hummus is the morning, hummus at noontime, hummus at suppertime...I could eat hummus at anytime!

3. My most fabulous Canon digital SLR camera with my 50mm 1.4 lens.

4. Bubble Baths. If I'm stressed or tired or cold...Calgon takes me away!

5. IKEA. Shopping at IKEA is a party for my eyes. The colors, the shapes, etc. It's such inspiration everywhere.

6. Grammar. I love it. I love correcting other people's. (I know that it's semi-rude.) There is nothing more fun than diagramming sentences.

Dear Grey's Anatomy,

Seriously, must you do this to me every single season. You leave me dangling for 4+ months and I cannot and will not take it anymore! (Okay, so maybe I will, but only because I am beyond addicted.)

An Angry Tween Ball Player

Madison is not enjoying softball this year. She doesn't like her coach (her coach actually told them that they sucked), she has a lot of new players on her team that don't really know what they're doing and she's not dealing with it well. The girl does not like to lose. In fact, she's really not used to it at all.

She would love to quit playing, but Michael and I won't let her. I don't think quitting teaches you anything. But perseverance does.

Keep at it my baby girl, I love you.

It wasn't me who forgot that Madison and Ian were cold lunchers today and didn't pack lunches. They didn't call me and remind me. I didn't have to then run to Subway and take them lunch.

I would never be so lazy with washing clothes that Madison and Ian wore softball/baseball uniforms for two games straight without them being washed. I had more than one pair of socks so at least those were clean.

I have not been a blog slacker lately and just be too lazy to think of a good post. These days it seems as if I am getting all caught up in trying to be better at photography and letting my day get away from me. So, sorry fellow bloggers for the lack of interesting posts.

I did not kick my children out of the house to go run laps outside the other day. Just because they drive me nuts in the house and are constantly running/jumping/wrestling/kicking/punching/screaming does not mean that they need to run laps.

I most certainly would never, ever have a very specific pocket in my diaperbag made just for dum dum's (you know those tiny suckers). I would never be so embarrassed by my one year old and his unnecessary screaming (you know the one? Not because he's upset, because he wants too, and everybody stares at you) that I would just give him one to make him stop.

I did not actually sit on my hands one day this week to avoid slapping my child’s face as I was being sassed. I’m perfectly in control of my kids’ emotions and attitudes, not to mention my own, don't you know!?!

Finally, I have not signed completely out of blogger and then signed back in at least five times as I have reviewed this post and decided to change something or add another did not statement. Nope. That would mean I have too much time on my hands.
