What the Weekend Has Taught Me

The Chinese buffet & me are on the outs. I can no longer stomach another bite of Chinese-chicken-on-a-stick or lo mein noodles. Barf. I have had enough & I have forever banned this cuisine from one more family meal. (Although, my children think that eating at a Chinese buffet is equivalent to eating at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse.)

My iphone is way more important to me than I thought. After thinking I lost it and it was gone forever, forcing me to go back to using the dreadful $40 transitional phone, I had to force back quite a bit of tears. I was just as surprised as you. It has obviously become more than just a phone to me. Thank God I found it (and the Asians who owned the newly-banned Chinese buffet for their honesty). Mmm-wah ... I love you, Mr. iphone.

I would much rather sing than talk. When you sing a song, the words are already written, but when you talk, all kinds of crazy things can come out and you may have no control over them.

We have resorted to some line-writing in our household ... something I thought I would never use as a consequence. The statement below says it all.

I have always been a good sleeper. No insomnia. No waking up in the middle of the night. And, it was always difficult for me to wake up ... until now. I'm thinking Ambien may help or maybe just lots of Nyquil. I must sleep again soon.

If you think your hips are wide just when you look in the mirror, you'll be amazed at how wide they look on camera.

K Belle has started raiding my closet. Not only do we wear the same size shoe, but now she's wearing my dresses and tops. Huh? How'd that happen?

Did I mention I need to lose about 10 pounds in the next 3 weeks? SlimFast ... ugh.

I think I would die if I lost my iphone and had to go to a "transitional" phone. I'd feel like a cavewoman. They could use me on the Geico commercials.

I love your candidness and real life honesty!

I remember the first time Katelyn started wearing my shoes . . . it wasn't very enjoyable! lol

My parents totally made me do Line writing when I was a kid.....ahhh that brings back happy memories ;) lol.
Ditto on the 10 lbs.

The line writing -- hilarious!

And your wardrobe must be pretty cool if your daughter is raiding it -- I'd take it as a compliment :)

you got this... 10 pounds is nothing!

Oh and I'm addicted to my blackberry, but I would totally be addicted to the iPhone like all cool people if I could make myself switch to AT&T

Thanks to your wisdom and insight, I will now be singing EVERYTHING. No more need for a filter. Just sing!
