Oprah writes a column in her magazine every month called “What I Know For Sure.” Here are the things that I realized I know for sure based on my life last week.
Oooh, maybe Oprah will read this and ask me to fill in for her when she’s on vacation! Cross your fingers.
-Sometimes I just have to give up on nap time, load my kids in the car, and waste a little gas until they zonk out. I sincerely apologize to Mother Earth (and Al Gore) that I put my sanity before our planet’s health. But I’ll do it again tomorrow if I have to.
-I don’t care that The Pilot says you’re supposed to make hot chocolate with water because there’s milk already in the powder. It tastes better if you make it with milk.
-Even at 33 years old libraries still intimidate me a little and librarians intimidate me a lot.
-Publix and Target exercise mind control when you enter their stores that causes you to buy way the hell more than you intended. You know how when you walk into the doors and that big puff of air blows your hair back? That’s the magic gas that causes you to lose self-control.
-The Christmas season brings out the best in people…except for people at the mall.
-Computer viruses suck but not as bad as stomach viruses. (Though they are more expensive.) Burtch learned this one too. He heard me say that the computer had a virus and he asked me if it threw up.
There you have it- the things I know for sure.
No pictures today. This old computer I’m using would curl up and die if I tried to upload photos. Hopefully, my computer will complete it’s course of antibiotics and I’ll be able to pick it up on Monday. When it get’s home we’re going to have to talk about using protection.
