Some of the questions that went through my mind this morning while I was out running. It became very obvious I was preoccupied when I got home and realized I hadn't even noticed how many cars were parked along the side of the street!

*Why are people shopping NOW like it's the week before Christmas? Every time I go to Costco it's packed. And I'm there lots. It's almost my second home.....
*Why is every shopper at Costco about 150 years old?
*Why do they move slower than molasses in January while they shop?
*Why is it that no matter how much money I spend on groceries (plenty!), my children always gripe that "there's nothing to eat?"
*Why do I agree with them??
*Why are my days so busy?
*Why, if I am an at home mom, am I never at home?
*Why am I both glad and sad that Victoria is done with volleyball for the season?
*Why am I not looking forward to the end of Emily's season?
*Why does it feel like every time I make plans, something comes along that means those plans must change?
*Why the possibility of a long business trip now, with the state tournament for volleyball, the start of basketball and cheer, Thanksgiving, and Brent's departure for the Marines coming up? All would be missed.
*Why do we have to be in limbo waiting to know if the trip will happen or not?

And probably the biggest question of them all....

*Why don't moms get sick days???
(No, I"m not that sick. Yet. Fortunately, it's just a cold. Boy would I LOVE a day to stay in my jammies, watch movies and read, and have someone take care of me, serve me hot drinks and anything I want to eat! But moms don't have that option.)


  1. I don't know why. If you come up with any good answers, though, I'd love to hear them! I've been shocked, too, at how crowded Costco is. But at the same time, I'm actually feeling a little stressed that I haven't started my Christmas shopping... I like to get it done early! Hope things work out okay regarding the business trip. Also hope you can join us for lunch and shopping next month!

  2. Why is it no matter how much laundry I do, all my clothes are still dirty?! Why is it I only run out of milk at 8:30pm and don't have enough for Kieren's nighttime sippy? Why is it I'm the only one who is left stranded on the potty with no TP?????

    I want some answers darn it! BTW, if you lived near me, I would give you that sick day!
