Its funny how an ordinary week can teach you so much. Here is what I learned in the last seven days

1) Nothing hurts quite as much as watching a child hurt themselves
2) Nothing makes your heart pump harder than the pride a mom feels
when her child accomplishes something everyone told him he couldnt and
not only do you know but he also knows YOU are the reason he was able
to do it
3) Husbands say really stupid things and the worst part is they actually
believe some of the shit they say
4) Daughters are more like their mothers than they realize
5) No matter the distance, a true friend is always with you
6) If God doesnt make junk then He must have been really tired when He
made stupid people
7) Raccoons can get as big as small dogs and its creepy when one takes
up residence in your back yard
8) Summer vacation is nothing more than a punishment for mom
9) Just when you think you have dealt with the loss of your dad the
anniversary of his death comes around and kicks you in the gut again
10) Teenage girls are convinced that NOTHING is their fault
11) Teenage boys dont understand the words "I dont have the money for that"
12) The government doesnt like to part with money, even YOURS and they get
really angry when you try to make them
13) Money wont magically appear out of your ass no matter how hard you push
14) Certain computer programs are evil. Spawned straight from satan and a porn
15) When they make something sugar free it costs twice as much even though
its minus an ingredient or two

wow I could have written that ..   i am sorry about your dad .  i am feel the same way . Sometimes  when a car drives by and cast a shadow on the wall  or one the  kids  balloons moves  I think my dad is just in the other room . then BAM  the realization hits me again that hes gone.

And i really think that husbands need to fill out a form " Do i really need to say this "  and submit it  before they are allowed to say it 4 days in advance.

Not sure how I missed this...ok, well I CAN think of a few reasons why, first being blonde in my previous life!

Acute and painful observation, but totally true...reality is the shits.  I would love to throw a few more in there for the mix.  

Great words woman
