So, I was wondering, am I the only woman/mom on the planet who has lists.
Really, a list for everything.
I even have a list for when I get in the shower.
Who does this?
It is totally unconscious.
I have to think what day it is, if it's a hair wash day, shave day or just quick shower day.
I don't normally remember it's just damp hair day until I step under the water and say aaahhhh!
Now I have to spend an extra 15 mins on my hair.
So I stand there in the water, thinking of all the shower things I have to do.
Now, I am not doing this in silence like my husband.
No, I am doing this amidst the sounds of children screaming at me
and then screaming at each other. Lovely!
Ok-first I have to wash my hair-since I got it wet
Scrub with very lovely, expensive shampoo.
The children have been warned, touch this shampoo, even look at this shampoo,
and their Hannah Montana shower gel is gone!!!
Now I will condition. While I am conditioning, I am washing my face. (the most important step of the day)
Then I rinse my hair.
Then I scrub my body with the "Tahitian sunrise body wash"
It claims that you will feel just like you are on a tropical oasis.
Rinse off quickly !
I have now been in the shower for 4 mins and my kids are going to die
RIGHT NOW if I don't get out.
Little do they know they are much safer while I am in the shower, then when I am out.
After the shower I start in on the drying off and dressed list.
Then onto the get pretty list. There are two of these.
Just enough to answer the door, or I have got a date and I want to look hot!
Most of the time, it's just enough to answer to door so I don't scare the ups man.
Then it's next list, the kitchen, family room, vacuum the stairs, do laundry, BATHROOMS list!
So-I get everything done. I want to die!
I still have one more thing on my list. The only thing on my list that I even wanted to do.
Decorate bathroom list.
So-what's a girl to do. You can't go to bed with an item on the list as important as decorating.
If it would have been the bathrooms, I so would have been asleep.
So-I made my hubby help me. He complained the whole time. I was prepared for this, so it didn't really affect me. I got it all done at 11:00.
This was pretty good time. I was happy with the time spent and the results.
Now, I had to go to the bed time list.
I wish sometimes I could be a man.
He doesn't have a list.
He just does what he does, helps the kids get in the shower, yells at them to go to bed and then searches online for stupid stuff.
Then, he goes into his room-takes off his pj's and gets into bed.
I am still doing my bedtime list. It is about the time that I moisturizing my face, that I step out of the bathroom,
still thinking, it would sure be nice to be a man and not care.
Then, he farts!
He laughs, rolls over and goes to sleep.
I go back in the bathroom to wash my hands and put on my yummy lotion.
Never Mind!the saying on the bathroom mirror.
