In The Interest of Full Disclosure

When I put away Brian's laundry, I hang his shirts in the closet by color.  Can you say organizational freak?  I eat my M&Ms the same way.  I always eat the brown ones first and then whatever color has the least amount until I'm left with the color with the largest amount.  Tonight it was orange. 

I've had the same library card for 23 years.  I don't mean the same account.  I mean the same plastic card. 

I met my friend, Jamie, 24 years ago when we were in the first grade. We still keep in touch (though not nearly enough).  I also keep in contact with my penpal, Lauren.  We started writing 16 years ago! 

I shave my legs every day, summer and winter.

Even though it goes against "expert" advice, I've nursed every one of  my babies to sleep.  And neither of my children has consistently slept through the night until at least 18 months old.  They've all slept in my bed, too.  Some mornings I wake up and think, "I wish I had slept a little better last night," and there are mornings when I grumble, "I can't wait until I can sleep for more than 4 ( or even 2) hours without someone needing me," but I know it won't last.  I have an 8-year-old who doesn't want to hold my hand to cross the street anymore and I miss that.

As much as I love this new house, I am having a hard time adjusting to a new place and a new routine.  Instead of a dryer in the middle of my kitchen, we have a separate laundry room now  and I keep forgetting to fold the laundry.  I don't feel myself yet because I don't even know where to find everything I need.  Where did I put those tweezers? I cried when I unloaded the dishwasher and half of the dishes were still dirty.  I'll feel better once everything is put away and we establish a new normal. 

I still love my life.

  1. I love posts like this...that make me feel like my abnormal life is a little more...normal :)

    Thanks for being real!

    By the way, I used to eat my Peanut M&Ms the same exact way. Now days it seems like I just eat them as quickly as possible before someone can catch me.
