Things I learned today

Don't even attempt shopping without a list.

Always write your list on colored paper.

There are no shoes in size 9 1/4.

Keep your coupons in one place.

Burger King's chocolate chip cookies are fabulous.

McDonald's chocolate chip cookies are good, BK's are better.

Make your list on 8 1/2" x 11" green paper.

Never trust the road to be free of thin invisible ice.

Never attempt shopping without a list.

If you gain weight, you can fill out your bra.

Your bra gain is never noticeable because of your body gain.

Make your list on 8 1/2" x 14" sparkly hot pink paper.

Know where your coupons are.

Jeans do not come in 1/2 sizes, you must move up two points.

Body spillage pushed up by small jeans inhibits breathing.

Never attempt shopping without a list.

Know where your fricking coupons are.

After a haircut, do not lift scissors to hair.

Expect to pay more for an emergency cut.

Accept the holes, dips, and shortness of a repair cut.

Make your lists on 11" x 17" yellow reflective paper.

Buy clothes big enough to hide your body.

Vow to lose weight.

Tantrums and arm flailing are not exercise.

Below zero temperatures take your breath away.

Snow squeaks during extreme cold.

Pack your new big fat clothes that allow breathing.

Fill your Magma with small projects.

Don't forget your scissors.

Do NOT lift scissors to hair.

Pack chocolate.

Don't waste time looking for the fricking list.

Take an Ativan.

Let stitchers know that Nash's heart is on EBay here.

Say goodnight.

I am so sorry, but your list made me laugh! I agree with every single item except for the BK cookies. And the only reason for that is that there is not a BK within 30 miles of my house. My week has been horrible. My dad lives in my home and has been on Hospice for 20 months. My husband had extensive shoulder surgery on Wednesday and won't be able to help for 8-12 weeks. I'm taking care of baby goats that do not belong to me. I want to crawl in a hole and stay very quiet for a long time. Thank you for a different perspective! I will start a list... LOL

Loved your list I got a BIG chuckle out of it, Thanks!

The heart is lovely.


Mary A said...

Ok, everything on your list was helpful, except the part about the chocolate chip cookies. Please keep such dangerous information to yourself as this kind of info only leads to trouble....

Patti said...

Love your list and agree with every item. I must admit that I snorted with laughter over the tantrum and arm flailing. Good to know!
Blessings, Patti

I am crushed to hear that tantrums and arm flailing are not considered exercise. I am so very good at that....as well as eating chocolate.

Truus said...

Thanks for your list-will stay to this.. except for the chips because no BK or Mc D in the neighbourhood.
big hug

I assume you had a bad day. I hope today is better for you. I put my shopping list on my phone.


Vickie said...

I am surprised to learn that you own sparkly hot pink paper. I want some! I just ate a Dove while reading your post. ;)

Margaret said...

Love your list! I need bigger paper for my lists for sure. :D Hang in there. Almost time!

Karen said...

To Miss Angela Tucker, I wish I could help you as certainly you need rest. I have prayed The Lord would send you somebody.
To Miss Marly, I can not help you. I lose lists all the time as my purse is filled with too many to go through and they are almost always the wrong one. I too take the scissors to my hair but fortunately I have so little it doesn't seem to matter except occasionally when I cut the bangs too high. There is no fix for that.

PS: I liked this post. A lot.

Prayers for you and Carole all next week and on and on !
Thinking of you !
Hugs, Charlotte in Va.

Maggee said...

Oh how at least I needed a good laugh!! You are something else!! I was sitting here, making a list of things to do when I finally go out today (for the first time in a WEEK!!!!!)... maybe... And I have been tempted many times this week to take the scissors and fix my hair... but I didn't... Oh I will be chuckling all day! Thank you! (I know next week is the week, and have prayed and will pray) Hugs!
