Hot tip of the day

If you ever want to not get where you are going in a timely manner get behind a car with Florida plates and a handicap parking pass.

Conversations in Crazytown

Jack:  Mommy are cheeks and buttcheeks cousins?

Me:  Are what...oh.  Yes.

Next day...

Maisy:  Jack I have a question.

Jack:  What?

Maisy:  Are cheeks and buttcheeks cousins?

Jack:  Yep.

Maisy:  How do you know?

Jack:  Because Mommy said yes.

Close the door

When I was a kid in California we did not have central air.  We relied on a window unit in our kitchen.  So every time you went out a door you closed it behind you.  We didn't want to cool the whole neighborhood!  Simple.  So here is something I have noticed about my husband.  He will absolutely not close a door behind him.  And in New Jersey its not even all about the expense of cooling or heating the neighborhood.  There are bugs.  Big ones.  And one million mosquitos waiting to get in that door and feast on me.  So I keep saying close the door.  But he just keeps walking.  Maybe half closes it.  And I go and close the door.  After six years in the house its really become an issue.  Which I think is so so easy to remedy.  Close.  The door.

Recently I've realized that this little tick that he has also happens in the bedroom.  He will wake up to get ready for work at 4 am and take a shower and leave the bathroom door open.  With the bright bathroom lights shining in my eyes while I try to remember that it's not my time to wake up.  So I get up and close the door.  And lie awake angry for an hour.

Please.  I know you are a good person.  Just close the door.

TMI Tuesdays

Can you see the sheen? Having one right now.

So I'm apparently going through "the change" because I am hot flashing all over the place.  We call them the granny sweats in our house and everyone loves to play Watch Mommy Melt.  They really are a pain in the ass but if I had to pick or die five good things about hot flashes it would be:

1)  You never get that chill when you first get out of the shower
2)  People feel sorry for you
3)  Cuts your cashmere budget to practically zero
4)  When your husband steals the covers you are happy

I can only think of four.  Anyone have another positive??
