While browsing Barnes and Noble I found this interesting book in the Self Help section called "You Are Good At Things a Checklist" by Andy Selsberg. It caught my eye and made me laugh a little.. The book is a series of things to check off to make you feel better about yourself. Here's some of that I thought I could check off..
- Noticing new haircuts
- making it to the hotel pool before it closes
- Sensing how many sheets the stapler can handle
- Inserting swear words into regular words
- wearing pants
- Estimating if a crowded elevator is overweight
- Applying reverse psychology
- Applying double reverse psychology
- Making dismissive gestures
- Announcing you could make a salad at home for cheaper
- Tying shoes and ties on someone else's body
Having very specific ideas about how you like your tea
- Laughing at yourself
- Signing documents on other peoples backs
- Pulling a Fast one
- Assuming it will all be online
- Living the dream
Some of the one's I haven't done… but thought were funny:
- Getting out of bone marrow donation requests
- Telling Professional Coaches what to do (I had quite a few old boyfriends that could do this)
- Knowing just how high you can toss a baby before it gets dangerous.
- Being fearless about trying other people's prescriptions
- Straddling the line between appropriate and inappropriate butt patting
- Scrubbing away shame in the shower
- Wiping that smirk off your face
- Knowing the appropriate level of participation and enthusiasm when at a worship service not of your religion.
- Following through with threats to write a children's book.
- Announcing whenever you're keeping it real
- Catching drifts
- Keeping the line moving
This is a cute and funny book.. It will make you laugh.
The Man and #6
Today – tonight's To Do list is gonna be a strange one… We are currently "rooming" in with #6 for the evening. The hospital here would like to see if the Man and I still "got it"… and by 'IT" I mean our parenting skills.
You'd think that the parents of 5 children.. would have learned SOMETHING in the last few years.. but maybe not. Some people would think we don't learn too fast since we are STILL having children…
Tonight #6's nurse said to me; "I'd like to watch you change his diaper and take his temp." I looked around the room and waited for Ashton Kutcher to jump out and say: "You've been PUNK'd!" but he didn't.. Did I mention that the nurse was the same age as #1…. ON TO the list..
- 11:00pm Take temp, change diaper, feed #6
- 2:00am Take temp, change diaper, feed #6 watch nurse draw blood (I won't be watching..)
- 5:00am Take temp, change diaper, feed #6
- 8:00am Take temp, change diaper, feed #6
- Wait the rest of the day for them to test and approve me as a parent…
- Remind #1 to remove all animals and sanitize the house
- #2 should arrive sometime in the early am to ride home with #6 in the backseat.
- Have #2 run into Target and buy the industrial size bottle of hand sanitizer.. the nurses have scared the poo out of me about germs and babies.
- Before bringing #6 in the house rub hand sanitizer on everything.
