Waitin' for the green...

I am sitting in the truck today, kids crying, contemplating the the pros and cons of being deaf...waiting FOREVER for the green light.

I wait, and wait some more.

I really am about go nuts with impatience because this STUPID light wont turn green already!!! The anxiety and stress continue to build. Kids are crying even louder now! Help!!!!!!!

I grip the steering wheel even tighter and beads of sweat begin to form, my chest is tight with stress...this is when I realize stop signs never turn green.


(Side note: This is not the first time I have done this either.)

10 Annoying Things About Me...

1.I use way too many exclaimation points when I write!!
2. !!!! (see! I can't stop!!)
3. I hate to change lanes when I am driving. Seriously. If I know that I need to turn right off of a street or highway, I will totally stay in the right-hand lane the entire time. It drives people nuts who ride with me.
4. I watch the news religously. Except, my "news" is E! celebrity gossip. I hang my head with shame as I type this...sigh...
5. If I can make it through the day with out someone wiping their nose on my shirt, using it a handiwipe, something quick to stop the bloody nose, or an a shield to protect the carpet from the fluids that project out of my better believe I am wearing that shirt again tomorrow. And proudly!!
6. When I don't know what to say next, I have a terrible habit of saying, "sooo...anyway"
7. I have an odd obsession with buying certain items when I go to the store. Even if I know I have some at the house, I still buy it! Mascara, baby wipes...tubs of butter. Gross, I know.
8. I make stirfry every single Monday. No one in my family even likes stirfry. I just make it. And have a ton of left overs.
9. Okay, so this one is more of a confession more than anything else. I, (whew...starting to sweat and shake as I type this one!) I have sent my kids into childcare knowing they have a poopy diaper. Ohhh...I know this is so bad!!!!!!!!!!!!!! On the few (I promise, just a FEW times) I have done this horrible disservice to humanity, it has been out of dire need of a break. I have a had kids in diapers for the past 8 years, which 5 of them (collectivly) I have been by myself. A girl needs a break, OKAY?!?!?
10. Sooo...anyway...
