*A three year old rarely actually hits the toilet.
*My laundry is only caught up for 30 seconds and it starts all over again.
*Never under ANY circumstance get on the scale during your period…EVER.
*Having a baby fall asleep in your arms is still one of the most beautiful parts of life.
*Drinking my morning coffee in a pretty cup makes it taste better.
*Sometimes something can look like chocolate…and it is NOT!
*Next month is my 20th high school reunion….I sometimes still think I AM 20!
*Working out can turn my day around so quickly.
*I NEED the weekend with Kelly. When he is not here on a weekend I feel so off and tired.
*I need to eat the grilled artichokes from White Chocolate Grill at least once a week or I go into a deep withdrawal and it is the only thing I think about. Who wants to meet me right now??????

Oh wow, I would love to meet with you Jeanne, but I can’t just run over from Indiana!! Love how you keep it real! We can all so relate.
ok lets go.
10 and 15 year olds don’t hit the toilet either…just sayin’
Real encouraging Jackie…thanks a lot…I have so much to look forward to. At least tell me they will mow the lawn or something!!!
White Chocolate grill?? Yummy…take me there someday okay?:) And girl, rule #1 never to be broken, is DO NOT weigh on your period. What were you thinking;)???
Ditto on the 20th reunion thing. Mine is next month too and I’m not going!!! Just want to feel like I’ve accomplished more with my life!
I can relate totally sista!!! lol Laundry, 20 year reunion coming up, feel like I should be 20 also! Sometimes I look around at my house, 3 kids and hubby and think “where did you all come from?!?” lol ~Shelley
oh baby i am having my 30 year class reunion next month!!! i still feel 20 but my things that are drooping must not feel the same age!!! 🙂 hope you have fun at yours!
You are so funny! I don’t think I want to know about the chocolate. Never heard of White Chocolate Grill..but love artichokes. I always stop by but don’t usually leave a comment. I love how you share such deep feelings. Makes me happy to know others feel the same way I do. 🙂
Me! Let’s order two this time and not share!
You are sooo right….there will be NO sharing!!!
hi.lar.ious!! ummm…35 year old men can’t hit the toliet!! ;0)
will be right over for a girls night out!! after i clean the toliet…
the scale thing- you hit the nail on the head- so very true.
So that’s why my day started out so poorly! What was I thinking getting on the scale today?! 😉
Grilled artichokes sound divine…like I might need to try that this weekend.
Absolutely agree with you about the hub-gone-on-the-weekend-dilemma…when Dave is gone I just don’t know what to do with my weekend with the girls…he’s all FUN for the most part and apparently (this is coming from the “cheap seats”) I have trouble in this area.
Hi – great list – I want and need alot of these things too! Isn’t that a lovely thing about blogging – that you can capture a list like that, share it, face it, hold it in your hands so to speak? Lou x
What was it that you mistakingly ate?
Words to live by! The chocolate one is a bit disturbing. Another good reason to get yummy artichokes. 🙂
P.S. Laundry is so lame…and repetitive.
Enjoy your day!
I love that you did this…everything is so great…and I’d love to meet you!!
i love how you started with the potty, and ended up with artichokes
hilarious…..and if i could meet you, I so would.
I DO!!! A baby falling asleep in my arms is about the only thing that could ever keep me completely still. Completely content. and I’m doing laundry right now and yes right later too! Theresa
I adore artichokes – any way any how. My grandmother always stuffed them with parmesan cheese and bread crumb egg and olive oil stuffing and roasted them…mmmm. I kept the tradition alive with my sons. Chocolate…been there – it was my dog’s eye booger — ahhhrgrrggg! Jennifer come visit jennsthreegraces
so many things that i can relate too! there is a restaurant here that serves artichokes francese and they are fabulous! have a great day! susan
oyyy….i’m right there with you on the laundry thing. why?! why?!
and i’m betting it gets worse when they become teenagers. brace yourself jeanne!
my sister made some delicious truffles from carob powder recently since she is on her raw diet. you may need the recipe for them. they were great!
I just celebrated my 30th class reunion! This is the first summer my 2 oldest children didn’t come home from college for the summer…so I have a lot less laundry, but it seems too quiet now.
if only i could meet you right now! I could use the artichokes AND the girl time!
My laundry is never caught up. Not even for 30 seconds.
I would love to join you (wish I could)… Grilled Artichoke sounds fabulous.
About thinking you are still 20, don’t stop. I still think I’m 18. Hopefully that is what will keep us always youthful.
Have a wonderful meal.
hahah – so true about a 3 year old hitting the toilet. Oh and laundry, do get me started 😉
Hope you got your grilled artichokes 🙂
Artichokes are good? Really??? Hope you’re having a great day!
Here’s a thought someone out there somewhere has more laundry than us.
I’m with you on the scale thing….this rule should be instilled in us from our childhood. Those extra 3-4 pounds really irritate me.
As for the baby sleeping in your arms, there is nothing in the world to bring us peace.
Have a blessed day, even if you have to wipe to toilet seat a million times today.
Oh my gosh, this just makes me giggle!
I’m still waiting for laundry to be done, my “boys” to have good aim, and to “feel” my age.
Thanks for making me smile, and reminding me about the special things in my life.
Me! I used to get my own artichoke for my birthday instead of a cake. Mind you, this was in South Dakota in the 60’s. No one had ever heard of artichokes!
My 25th class reunion is in a couple weeks…I still haven’t decided for sure if I’m going. Makes me feel old!!
Agree w/ the laundry…it has always been my least fav chore 🙁
Hope you get your artichoke fix soon, they sound delish!!
Have a great weekend w/ your guy!
Where is the White Chocolate Grill? Forget the artichokes, what do do they do with White Chocolate?!?! Thanks for reading the blog. Cara / callabee
me me me! I love those… yum! And their corn salad and lava cake!!!!
LOL The chocolate one got me. Love the list! All so true.
ugh….the toilet thing–so true. but, be patient. we decided our 15 year old had to learn to mow the lawn BEFORE he learned to drive a car….so the lawn looks lovely:) and I skipped Weight Watchers this morning for the exact reason. 🙂
hmmmmm…..I live an eerily similar life day by day, except it is not a three yr old missing the toilet, it is a thrity nine yr old man….
I’d totally love to meet you – and yes, there is nothing quite like having your child sleep in your arms
game on girl!
any place named the white chocolate grill surely is a winner
ps-you are so silly
i need my husband on the weekends too.
it’s brutal without him.
miss you jeanne!
I’m there…let’s go! And I’m so with you on the laundry, pretty coffee cup and my 7 year old falling asleep on my lap as we watch tv.
I want more of those artichokes too!! We need to go there and wrestle the recipe out of that crazy waitress!!
