Have You Ever?

So, Momma over at Live. Laugh. Pull Your Hair Out (is that not the most fabulous name for a blog from a woman with a family?) has started this wonderful new thing (sorry, don't know what to call it...a blog-along?) that she pulls out every once in a while, that she calls Have You Ever....

So when I mentioned to her that I would love to play along, but was intimidated she immediately responded with "Why?" (ummm, because hers are so great I can't possibly measure up?)  So although, I'm a day late and a dollar short (as usual), I've decided to try and do it.  (Plus the boys aren't here - so maybe I can get some creative momentum going here before they get back?)

Have you ever......

Cursed your car so long and loud that people begin to look at you funny? (Because seriously?  If the car isn't paid off yet, then it has no right to just stop working properly)

Have you ever......

Wondered what in the world was going through your child's mind when he decided that it would be a great - no scratch that - an EXCELLENT idea to sign up for Latin next year? (when he barely passed Spanish for the past two and he's got another really difficult course on the books for next year? Hello?  Seriously? For the next two years those grades need to be the best they've ever been!)  

Have you ever......

Looked at your Hubby and said, "Oh my God!  He is perfect!" because he just went from cooking a wonderful dinner to (attempting) to fix your car? (which he has! Yay Hubby!! Blowing extra kisses your way!)

and then . . .

Have you ever......

Completely revised your opinion when he proudly shows off some disgusting manly trait (I'm sure you all can insert your own version here.....except for the male readers - who will undoubtedly inform me that there are NO disgusting manly traits and inform me of a few female traits that drive them crazy.....)

Have you ever......


Made a list of all the things that need to be done around the house.  And then been depressed because never in a million years will there ever be enough time or money to get it all done? (If you haven't, then I strongly recommend you don't. Too depressing.)

Have you ever......


Painted your toenails blue (nod to Momma here, as she's asked this question before)?  If not, then I recommend you do so immediately!  The un-traditional colors are not just for the kids, folks.  I say as I admire my very blue toes.....you can't help but smile when you see blue toes!

Have you ever......


Met people online and clicked instantly?  In such a way, that you wished they were your neighbors? (Seriously, y'all this could be one really cool neighborhood if y'all would just move.....)

Have you ever......


Been dealt a very big shock - and after the dust settles, realized it was most likely the best thing that could have ever happened - even though the repercussions haven't fully hit yet?

Have you ever......


Walked through the house at just the right moment, when the sun is illuminating that certain corner, and said - "OMG!  That is SO dusty!  I should do something about that."  And then went back to blogging rather than dealing with it?

If you'd like to play along, feel free.  Just be sure to pop in over at Momma's and let her know that you are joining in by adding your link.  And, just for the record.  Once you get started, it's not as hard (or as intimidating) as it first seems.....

  1. I still have three years of car payments on my car and I swear at her frequently. I think it's a healthy relationship.

  3. Uh-huh.

    Uh-huh.

    Uh-huh.

    'Specially the making of the lists...which SEEMS like a great idea, but then it's all depressing when you can't cross anything off, so you have to ADD to the list...things like "get the mail" and "put dishes in dishwasher", just so you have something to cross off.

    Or, maybe that's just me....
