The one word that comes out of my mouth more times than "We're eating Fruity Pebbles for dinner again tonight!" -- and we all know how often those words exit my lips.
But I have decided that sometimes sharing is bad. Like today. Just don't tell my kids.
Today sharing and I are in a power struggle. And sharing is winning. And I'm a sore loser.
Today is Tax Day. *shudder* And I just shared a bunch of money with the U.S. government. And it has made me grouchy. I wish that I could write a long commentary here that sounded half-way educated and politically savvy about our need for the abolition of the IRS and flat-taxes....but, c'mon....we all know that I don't know any of that stuff. This is why I have my smart friends.....(Lisa...I need you to tell me how I'm supposed to feel about the IRS...email me!) All I know is that it stunk to high heaven today mailing off our "share"....and I almost threw myself on the floor of the post office and had myself a little fit. Because I don't like to share my toys.
Today is also I Feel Better, Hallelujah! Day. *grin*smile*smile* And I was actually very excited about going back to work and getting back into the swing of things around here. For the first time in a week I woke up without feeling like I was going to throw up everywhere, and I actually could watch the news without there being 6 of Katie Couric. All was well! Until Child #2 (a.k.a. Sawyer) decided to come down with the same wicked virus that I had. What?! Sharing is good....but not when it is sharing germs with your 7 year old. When I found him burning with fever in the middle of the night because I had so graciously "shared" with him....I did throw myself on the floor and had myself a little fit. Because the only thing I want to share with my babies is kisses. Germ free kisses.
Because I do know that it is nice to share....sometimes....I thought I would share a couple of things with you!
First is the random knowledge that my refrigerator now smells like boiled eggs. And every time I reach in to snag a soda, I get a whiff of egg. At least they are pretty.
And...yes...I know that is the same picture that I already posted of my pretty stripey eggs...but I didn't really think showing you the inside of my super-gross fridge would be sharing in a good way. So...you're welcome!
Second is a $5 Sonic Card! That's right, kids. A Give-Away! Because although I don't like to share my toys with the IRS, I do like to share with my friends. And I think everyone should get the chance to at least TRY a Pineapple Diet Dr. Pepper! And if I'm buying...then you can't complain! Right? All you have to do is leave me a comment, and then I'll ask one of my smart friends how to do one of those nifty random number picking things!
See....sharing is good! I feel better already.
