Raise Your Hand If...

(Excuse me for just one second while I rant and rave and try to get some comic relief out of it.)

Raise your hand if:

1) You wake up almost every morning dead tired mad at yourself and wondering why the h*ll you stayed up so.late.again. only to go to bed even later that same night.

2) You really want a dog, your kids all want a dog, you had a dog before and the family did perfectly fine with him but one day, shortly after you had a baby and your mind wasn't really in the right place, you let your husband talk you into letting the dog go live with your parents "just until the baby got a little older" but when she did get older, your husband refused to allow the dog to come back and the dog has since gotten so use to living in his "temporary" housing, five years later, that he doesn't mesh well with the family anymore. And you and the kids have already found the replacement dog about five or six times yet your husband refuses to let the family have a dog. Even though he's the only one that doesn't want one. And he's outvoted 4 to 1.

3) You work about six or eight jobs with only one that pays the bills.

4) You sometimes wonder if you are the only person in the house that knows where the extra toilet paper is kept.

5) You can't help but wonder if it would be easier to just cut all but an inch or two of your hair and call it a day.

6) You go to the gym but don't lose weight.

7) You eat french fries even though you spent 1.5 hours sweating the hair out that you just spent 3 hours at the salon doing.

8) You want to trade your mommy car in for a two door BMW with no back seat.

9) You will never drive a minivan but you will drive a car big enough to fit a minivan in because those are the only cars that offer all the same bells and whistles that a minivan does.

10) You really should be working instead of blogging right now or reading other blogs.

11) You wonder why you seem to be the only one who understands the homework situation in your house.

12) You don't have a nice watch but your husband does and you're at least 32 years old and should have at least one nice one by now. (Fergie, we know you're hand is up for this one).

13) You always have several loads of clean laundry around the house that seem to never get folded and put away but instead, serve as the source of clothes that end up being used throughout the week. (Hey, it's much easier to keep everyone's clothes in one crumpled pile in a basket than to fold and put away all those clothes away, right?)

14) You drink wine with dinner because you need it to make it through homework and bathtime.
HAPPY HUMP DAY EVERYONE!

I am feeling this . . . as the pile of (clean) laundry in my home continues to grow . . .

Two hands and two feet raised over here!

OMG, My hand got tired being raised. I can so relate to 8, 11, 12, & 13.

Love the post!

Kathy Sykes said...

I know many moms/women can relate to this post. I sure did and lauged out loud. The minivan comment was hilarious!

Christie-The ChatterBox said...

So um is it like really bad if you raised your hand for all of these except maybe two of them? Excuse me while i go hit the bottle...um...I mean...call my shrink! This was funny!

Christie-The ChatterBox said...

Oh and don't hate on the minivan! Once you go "minivan", you never go back...just sayin'. :)

La'Tonya Richardson said...

OMG!LMAO!!!

If I didn't know any better, I'd think that was my husband. Seriously, he will not let us have a dog! And now, I look before I sit, or just stop by the closet and get a roll of tissue even before going.

Tuesday, I permed my hair myself, and accidently with an extra strength. If it had come out, I was going to shave my head, pierce my nose and buy a funky lip gloss!

I don't have a mini van, I have the conversion van fully loaded. Roomy and good to get my brood around, but screams MOM, and is so NOT sexy!

And my drink of choice is Coca-Cola. Lately, there have been some two drink days!

Revka said...

LOL! Yes, I had to agree with you on several of these, especially the clean laundry. :D

Tara said...

Man, I had no idea you all lived inside my head!

1) You wake up almost every morning dead tired mad at yourself and wondering why the h*ll you stayed up so.late.again. only to go to bed even later that same night.

This is me EVERY SINGLE MORNING.

3) You work about six or eight jobs with only one that pays the bills.

I have too many jobs that do nothing toward keeping me and family in the lifestyle to which we are accustomed.

8) You want to trade your mommy car in for a two door BMW with no back seat.

I drool when a super sexy two-door car drives by. Then I do a deep sigh and keep driving my Mommymobile...

10) You really should be working instead of blogging right now or reading other blogs.

13) You always have several loads of clean laundry around the house that seem to never get folded and put away but instead, serve as the source of clothes that end up being used throughout the week. (Hey, it's much easier to keep everyone's clothes in one crumpled pile in a basket than to fold and put away all those clothes away, right?)

Our guest has turned into the walk in closet for everyone. Go in, shuffle through the clothes on the bed, grab an outfit and go!

Too funny.

Even I can get in on this action - hand is still raised.
