You’re Not Alone (VIII)

I’m not saying these are all about me. I’m just saying if you feel the same, or you have done it too, you’re not alone.

You’re not alone if…

1. When you try to use your DVD or TV, you have to say the steps OUT LOUD because there is a lot to do and it is very confusing.

2. You stop in the middle of exercising to get a snack.

3. You don’t comment on someone’s social media post, not because you don’t have something to say, but because you don’t want to get a full day of notifications that have nothing to do with you.

4. When you go on vacation, it doesn’t matter if it’s for 3 days or 10, you don’t poop the entire time.

5. You love the Neon Trees song Sleeping With a Friend—or you actually ARE sleeping with a friend. 9Yay for you! Unless he’s married, or you are, then I don’t know, that’s probably not so good.)

6. You have like 2 minutes to talk and you call your friend and her kid answers, but then you have to waste valuable time making nice to the kid when really want you want to say is: “Hey, kid! I didn’t call for you!!”

7. You really and truly don’t hate anyone in the world except for the guy who just pulled out in front of you and is going 10 miles under the speed limit.

8. You considered getting a job washing dishes just so you can actually get paid for it.

9. You know “It broke, Mommy!!” is kid-code for “I broke it.”

10. You love that overalls are back in style except for when you go to the bathroom and the strap falls in the toilet.

11. You have days where you think everyone is a stupid idiot.

12. You sometimes need to be reminded of the last time you bathed your kid, and sometimes it’s your kid that reminds you.

13. Your favorite song becomes your LEAST favorite song 3 days after it becomes your ring tone.

14. You don’t buy anything red because you know how things will turn out when you wash it.

15. Sometimes when your kid says “Mommy???” you quickly reply “NO” because it really doesn’t matter what they’re asking for, that’s the answer.

16. You get a little stressed by all the coupons attached to the bottom of your drug store receipt. They give you 3 days to come back for the awesome 10.00 off, but you just bought everything you need so WTH???

    I don’t have anything clever to add, I just wanted to share that I laughed out loud at some of these. Thank you for sharing, it was good to laugh!
