Today I discovered...

  1. It's so much fun to drive in the rain with your windows down.  The kids love it!  Car may get a little wet, but it's just water...right?  Oh, and driving the car in circles in the cul-de-sac, 20 times, will make the kids laugh with glee, but it will also make everyone in the car super dizzy.  Including the driver.
  2. If you're stuck in the pick up lane at school for a ridiculous amount of time, listen to the Cure, Pearl Jam and Eddie Vedder, and sing at the top of your lungs.  Makes time go by faster.  People may look at you oddly because the music is blaring and the windows are down in the pouring rain, but I think it's 'cause they are jealous.
  3. Your kids will first look at you crazy when you strip off your clothes and run out the door to play in the rain and jump in the puddles, but then they will join you.  Then the neighbors will look at you crazy.
  4. Studying at Starbucks is hard when you are eavesdropping on a couple trying to define their relationship.
  5. If you want to be depressed, you should watch back-to-back episodes of Hoarders.
  6. If you want to laugh hysterically you should look up Seinfeld & Scrub quotes.  Those shows crack me up!
  7. Picking my kids up from school in my pajama's embarrasses them.
  8. If I don't go to the gym I have a lot more time on my hands to get things done.  But somehow I seem to get less done. 
  9. If you eat nothing but cheesecake and corn bread all day, by 8:12pm you want to throw up.
  10. Life goes on and normal can be redefined.  SO thankful!

Fun list! I'm trying to figure out what you mean by "strip off your clothes and run out the door," but I'll leave that up to my own imagination:) I rarely pick my kids up from school in my pajamas, but I ALWAYS take them to school in my pajamas. It means I never have to walk them in and I can go back to sleep when I get home.

You sound happy today, and I'm so very glad!

LOL! I, too, was thinking "your neighbors *should* look at you crazy because you just stripped off your clothes and ran out the door". ;-)

Cheesecake and cornbread...seriously? You *have* been missing those carbs. ;-)

I agree with E, you do sound happy...and that's so wonderful to hear.

Y'all will be relieved to hear that I didn't completely strip down!

You sound like the fun mom. I am trying to say 'Yes" more to my boys. I can't believe how often 'No" jumps to my lips before I even think it through! I love the look of surprise on their faces when I simply say 'yes'.
