I'm grumpy right now, so these are the 10 things I'm thinking with a grumpy mind.
1. I'm not saying that Grandma deserved to get vomited on by the baby after feeding the kids way too much candy for a couple of days. Let's just say that the universe occasionally has some great symmetry.
2. It seems like every hospital I have ever worked in has a "poo room." I understand why. Hospital bathrooms are either a bunch of stalls or they are for patients. So, that one bathroom with just the one toilet in it is too tempting to pass-up, but do hospitals add that one bathroom on purpose? Do the contractors have some rule? And how do they decide who gets the office right across the hall?
3. Why can my dog eat 40 pounds of dog food and not gain a pound while only running in the yard once? I eat one pound of food and gain 40 pounds while carrying two children up and down the stairs 40 times.
4. Holding lazy people accountable = drama. I couldn't figure out why until I realized that drama is really distracting. They must have some success distracting people from the obvious lazy.
5. How often do Potemkin Villages work? I really want to see research and statistics on that.
6. Everyone knows you are not supposed to judge a book by it's cover. I still do it all the time. I have reread the same horrible books many times because the cover was so pretty. I actually started writing a book report on every book I read in an effort to quit being taken in by the covers. It doesn't work. I just read a lousy book I have already read once again. Truly lousy book. Terrible plot. Horrendous dialogue. Really neat cover.
7. Running all the way to Costco to find out they have run out of what you came for is irritating, but it is bewildering how you still end up spending over $100. The other day, I bought one thing at Costco for $8 and actually confused the cashier. I don't think he had ever seen that before. I'm now a Costco legend.
8. Babies grow out of the good smells and into the bad ones way too fast.
9. I hate sell-by dates. I don't want to know when I shouldn't buy it. I want to know when to throw it away. I promise not to buy it after I should throw it away.
10. Having kids really changes PMS. PMS used to just mean I got bitchy. Now, it means that if I hear someone else's kid cry, I cry. Wait, maybe that's just early-onset dementia.
