No, I'm not in love yet


Here it is, day two of the year I'm going to fall in love and all I can say is I don't think I can handle the stress. Today I went out for a while but I purposely didn't wash my hair or put on makeup and I wore my baggiest sweats to the dollar store, I wasn't taking any chances. I'm pretty sure falling in love means I'll have to shave my legs and I'm just not ready for that level of commitment.

Hailey and I have a New Year's Day tradition, we go out to dinner. Ok, it's not really a tradition, we just started last year and this year I totally forgot so we went to Chili's because I was at Walmart- once again makeup less and in sweats, you never know when men will start throwing themselves at you all because you said this is the year you are going to fall in love.

While we were waiting for our food Hailey asked me if I was worried that the world was going to end this year. For a moment I had a glimmer of hope, I could fall in love and then the world will end and I won't have to shave my legs. Then Hailey said the Mayans thought people were made of corn and their religion was basically the force from Star Wars and all hope flew out the window.

Corn? Seriously? I'm pretty sure Hailey is at least 75% potatoes because that's all I ate when I was pregnant but corn? How am I supposed to take their predictions seriously  when everyone knows that Star Wars is made up, not like Harry Potter which is real and if Harry Potter said the world was going to end I would totally believe him.

Anyway, I forgot the point of this post, which is probably the point because when I quit smoking I have enough energy for twelve people and my ADD kicks in and this is what you get.

Hope everyone is enjoying the new year as much as I am. May the force be with you- whatever that means.

  2. I'm married and blissfully in love but my husband has learned to just turn the lights off when my pants come off! lol! As to the Mayans, if we don't believe any other random past ancient civilization crazy ideas (like we don't mummify people anymore and we don't sacrifice kids) then why would we decide that this one thing is legit??? If we trust that they were smart enough to calculate the end of the world, then we should be following a lot more of their beliefs.

  3. Yeah, I love my husband, but I don't shave my legs to please him. I only shave my legs when i get tired of the hair. I just turn the lights off for him so he doesn't have to see it. Thank you for your post in my blog last week. I'm thankful melynda sent you my way. Sorry I'm just now getting around to commenting back. I'm usually on top of the while commenting thing.

  4. Hey, you have NO proof that Star Wars isn't real! Harry Potter is though.
    Love, Mo (:
