It's a new year which means a new round of confessions!
... that I HATE when people don't return their shopping carts to the cart return. And almost always, I find them RIGHT next to the cart return. I mean, really? Have we become that lazy of a society that we can't walk a couple feet to be polite and return our carts? Just the other day I saw a lady walk in the opposite direction and drop her cart in the middle of a parking space, when I'm pretty sure if she had just gone the other way, it would have been closer to return the cart to its proper destination. I always try to park close to the shopping cart return just to make sure I can return cart.
... that I've started using a potato masher to make guacamole (smash the avocado) and it works amazingly! I may never go back to using a fork again!
... that I haven't fully finished recapping our Disney cruise... from back in October. I still need to blog Days 5 and 6.
... that I bought Mason those cute Cars bandaids as a stocking stuffer last year because I thought they'd be cute if he got a boo-boo. I think I used 99% of them on myself. Oddly enough, he doesn't really ever get cuts that he needs bandaids for (knock on wood) and he doesn't seem to overly have an affection for them either (in the playing sense or in the necessity sense) so he really doesn't even care that they are cute and Cars. I wear them by choice because I think they're cute and I'm not even embarrassed to say that.
... speaking of boy mom things, like Cars bandaids, when I was doing my recap of Day 3 on our cruise, I literally did not know who the princess from Tangled was. In fact, I asked Seth what her name was and HE actually knew! He clearly would make a better girl dad then I would girl mom! Wow. I am so far removed from anything princess that I don't even know their names. Please don't give me a test, I will surely fail (unless it's a movie from my childhood!).
... that I hate that people don't get caught for breaking the rules. More specifically, but not limited to, not paying their car registration, not obeying the hands free talking on the cell phone law, and not paying for their mortgage. How do people get away with not paying for their car registration? Sure it's a $200 bill that I'd prefer not to pay either, but I assume that somehow catches up with you eventually, right? How do people think that holding their cell phone mere inches from their mouth is "hands free"? I'm not saying I'm perfect or I don't talk on the phone in the car, but I ALWAYS put it on speaker phone and put the phone on my lap when I'm driving. And also... how do people get away with not paying their mortgage? Like you can not pay for months and months and they don't kick you out of your house (I mean eventually, but it's really EVENTUALLY... later rather than sooner)? I'm pretty sure I'd get kicked out for not paying my rent on time after one month.
... that Mason fell asleep in the car on the way to the mall the other day so I had this genus idea to use the stroller. I thought that I could lift him out of his car seat and that he would fall back asleep in the stroller if we reclined it. I was wrong. But we kept him in the stroller anyway (because he loves it, even though he is WAY too big for it). I had to use the bathroom so I took Mason in with me and as the door hit the stroller and the lady behind me didn't help me at all and I struggled to get the stroller in the door, I think I solidified the fact that we will only have one kid. I DO NOT MISS USING THE STROLLER.
... that when I look at how many pictures I have on my camera roll, I get overwhelmed.
... that I'm pretty sure that I'm not fun anymore. And I'm 100% ok with it! For New Year's Eve we went over to some friends house, had dinner, had a couple drinks, and were home and in bed by 10:30pm (and that's late for us!). I'd much rather have a couple drinks with friends at home and not be hung over the next day than go out partying and feel awful the next day. After all, the wake up calls come much earlier these days than they used to back in college.
...speaking of being unfun... I can get a text at 6am and respond right away, but text me past 9:30pm and don't expect a response until the next morning. I'm almost 100% for sure asleep on the couch by then.
And one more (with a picture) to leave you on...
... that I'm embarrassed to say that I hadn't checked on Mason's extra clothes situation at school in a while. He has a cubby with a couple extra shirts, a couple extra pairs of pants, and an extra sweatshirt in case he gets dirty or whatever at school and needs to change. Well, I hadn't checked in a while, and I guess all that he had in there were size 2T pants a couple weeks ago when he needed to change. Now, don't worry, they still fit...
... in the waist but definitely not in the length!!! LOL. He looked like he was waiting for a flood! Crazy boy can fit into a size 2T pants in the waist but needs 4T pants for the length. He's going to be tall and skinny, that's for sure!!
And there you have it! Can you relate to any of my confessions?
TGIF…Really, Thank GOODNESS.
