My Mission Statement

I write to serve, to unite, to educate. I write to share literature and flesh out ideas that may be of interest to others. I write to document an emotion, experience, or a blip in time. My mission is to write in such a way that the reader is reminded that we can find humor in all situations. It's one of the great blessings of life.

An Array of Interesting Tidbits

I've been a little out of sorts this week. Not sure why, maybe it's all the hot dishes and the ten pounds I've gained as a result. Those darn tater tots.
Anyway, I've been trying to figure out why, exactly, I've been so tired and out of it lately. So here goes:

1. As the mother of four, I'm responsible for the maintenance and inspection of 100 finger and toenails a day, including my own.
2. If everyone in my house wears one pair of socks a day (and they often wear more), then I'm washing and matching up at least 42 pairs of socks a week (84 socks!)
3. I check over approximately 32 homework assignments a week.
4. I schedule about 48 haircuts a year, deliver children to approximately 32 of them.
5. Just in the immediate family, I buy approximately 40 birthday gifts a year.
6. I prepare somewhere in the neighborhood of 1095 meals a year, approximately 91 a month.
Jeez, okay, that's enough.

I have this wierd kind of dizzy thing going on. I've been dizzy for about two days related, I think, to stopped up sinuses. Anyway, it feels like permanent bed spins, and you know how great that feels.

Okay, that's all for now. Gotta see if eating helps. djk
