Well, I started up my Keurig, turned away for a couple of minutes to put some stuff in the fridge and when I looked back at the machine...there was coffee everywhere. It took a couple of seconds to register that I had neglected to put a coffee cup on to catch the coffee.

That was fun.

1. If we go near Carousel Center (now Destiny USA) we will get a fire a call. We can DAYS without an alarm, but no fail every mall trip. In 2001 that turned out to be a benefit. As John turned around to go on the call, and then we went to the mall after. Where we parked we went in by the resturant, and all of a sudden I hear a Squeel and a girl I hadn't seen since I graduated came flying out of Pizzaria Uno's. ALthough usually I am standing in line at Starbucks when we get a call. 

2. If I strip Carly's been on a Thursday to wash it. With the thinking that I have until Sunday to get it done, her Mom will call that they can't take her (today is no different). I did it today because I couldn't remember teh last time I washed her bedding and her's is the I usually wash weekly.

hold on I have more.... lol

My kids and I rarely get sick.  Almost never.  We're very lucky.  But the only times they do get sick is when my dh is traveling out of town for work.  It never fails.  I swear the germs know that I'm going to be the only adult in the  house for several days and wait to invade my children's bodies.  It's become a joke in the house when Kevin has an upcoming business trip...like I wonder what illness they'll get in March when he has to go to Rhode Island for a week?

Mine is if I have no evening plans my kids and husband are all asleep by 8. When I make plans and would be easier to have them all asleep when I leave around 8, they are all wide awake and cranky. Which makes for a cranky husband as he hates when I go outN which is why I always say never before 8!

do I know the feeling. 
The kids had stomach virus while John was on overnights. They staggered it so that no one was sick when he was home, but once be went back two nights later the next one had gone down.
