Missing: One Frumpy Dumpy Mom

This morning I woke up earlier than usual. I was able to not only shower, but I dried my hair... with an actual hair dryer. I was able to pick out an outfit to wear... and not the usual jeans and sweatshirt. I was able to put make up on... more than just a wave or seven of mascara. I was able to curl my hair... which took so long that now I know why I stopped and I was even able to brush my teeth before lunch!

My son walked down and saw me in the kitchen making omelets and looking all supermodel-ish and he said to me...

"Who are you pretending to be for Halloween mom?"

Your worst nightmare kid... your worst nightmare~!

When I showed up at church this morning, this lady with a Halloween sweatshirt, asked me, "Where is your Halloween costume?" Me in my business attire said, "Can't you see it? I'm dressed as a christian" Now I ask you, wouldn't I look cute in a Halloween costume at the funeral home!! I don't think it would be a very good idea to wear a costume to my work place. However, King Tut at Bagels n' Beans did look handsome!
Happy Halloween everyone!

What is it with women and hair dryers? Why is a towel not good enough? A towel works great for me. They use no electricity. When you're done with one, you toss it on the floor and two or three days later, it magically re-appears in the linen closet, all clean and folded.

Sean-yes, we use hair dryers... and soap-another thing that I know men will sometimes think "Do I really need soap, I mean, I used soap yesterday, do I NEED to use soap today?" Men are a mystery to me-you crazy fellows.

Oh, and in case you were wondering... a dip in the chlorinated pool is NOT the same as taking a bath. Some men get that confused.

I'm just sayin'

Did you kick Aaron's a** for asking you that?

No Kasia... we don't promote violence in our house.

No seriously... we don't.

I promise
