Things I've Learned This Week

( I apologize for posting fluff on September 11th, but if you are like me, you need a little light and fluffy on this day).

1. If I go into a public restroom in which everything is motion sensor activated, I will inevitably...
a. Get my bum sprayed with water when the darn thing flushes before I'm done.
b. Say "Damn it!" out loud, instead of in my head, which is what I meant to do, causing people in other stalls to laugh.
c. Put my hand under the soap dispenser. Wonder what is wrong with it. Move my hand, and squirt soap all over the counter.
d. Wave my hands under the faucet several times before I get the water to actually hit my hands.
e. Wave my hands under the paper towel dispenser several times. Nothing comes out. Remark to the lady behind me that the
thing isn't working. Watch as the next sheet comes out the minute she puts her hands under it.
f. Leave the bathroom feeling like an idiot.

2. Two hours of ME time goes remarkably fast. There is a definite difference in ME time and regular time, and I need to have a word with the man in charge about that.

3. Waiting until you are 2 years behind on your kid's digital scrapbooks and also managing to time it during PMS, looking at pictures like these...

is a very bad idea.

4. Taking a week off (which for me is only 2 days) makes your week a heck of a lot more fun, but your bank balance a heck of a lot sadder.

The worst for me was standing in line for two sinks. My turn. Waving and waving and waving and never getting the darn thing to turn on. How long do you try? When do you give up? And do you get back in line? Oooo that was a frustrating moment.

I love the brown shirt pic. He went from toddler to little kid this year, huh?

No. No. Bad girl. No looking at baby photos while PMSing. It's a hard lesson to learn, but all us mothers learn it at some point.

Trust me.

(In other's happened to me too!)

I hate those motion detector things. SOmetimes I feel like I might really be dead and that is why it won't work for me. *sigh* Too many of those "she died but didn't know it" movies, I suppose.

No apologies for fluff - I, for one, needed it. I am glad you got a couple of days off and some 'Me' time - when you find the guy that makes those things move at the speed of light, kick him in the nads for me.

We need to join forces to abolish auto flushers from restrooms everywhere. Alexis would rather die of a urinary tract infection than go near one of those things. So. much. fun.
