This week I have learnt a lot of things.
I have learnt (from Erin!) that the more water you drink the more your stuffed up nose will run…… down the back of your throat causing spazzaming choking coughing attacks at 3am. Causing you to vomit in the hallway.
I have learnt that said spazzaming choking coughing attacks at 3am do not wake my snoring husband. Even when I purposely do it 2 inches away from his ear.
I have learnt that said SCCA@3am causing vomit covered hallways need to be cleaned up by said vomiter. BUT only if your names starts with K and you are the mother.
I have learnt that KFC takes longer than 8 hours to digest. Ew!
I have learnt that toilet paper really is better for blowing your nose. No peeling nose for me! Thankyou near poverty for being able to afford toilet paper or tissues. Not both.
I have learnt I am easily pleased. Ecstatic actually. When DH brought home the new coffee maker yesterday by whole body shuddered with pleasure.
I have learnt that I am a much nicer person with coffee. LOTS of coffee.
I have learnt that if you stuff the Eye Toy camera in your mouth you can actually see your tonsils on the screen! Source: Watching Boo through the family room window.
I have learnt that I hate the Teletubbies. Well I have always hated the Teletubbies, but I especially hate them when 1. they are lined up on my kitchen bench while I am trying to cook, mocking me and 2. when they join their partner in crime, Boo, in scaring the bejesus out of me in the middle of the night, sneaking up on me to yell ‘Kill Kill Kill’ while I am in a SCCA.
I have learnt that I NEED coffee. Really. Oh sweet nectar of the Gods….
I have learnt that I have some wonderful caring friends both in real life and on the internet. Thankyou. You are my life line.
I have learnt that the very idea of DH going back to work gets me rather, ahem, um, excited. He starts MONDAY!!!!!!
I have learnt coffee soothes the savage mummy. (See a theme here?)
I have learnt that my workmate A is truly mad. Certifiable. And that is why I love her. She is currently putting in a tender to get a used Army tank. For her front yard. And she has a dead cat in her freezer. Apparently for DNA evidence if the police ever take her complaint seriously. Yes, mad as a cut snake, but wonderful. She took pity on me yesterday and went out and bought me a coffee.
I have learnt that my kids are wonderful. I have always known that, but I need to put something in here about ’em!
I have learnt that waking up in the morning and finding comments on my blog makes my day that little bit brighter, even if I have to go to work.
And lastly, I have learnt that shoes really do make me happy. Especially my sexy knee high red ones 🙂
