Did You Know?


A TV in your bedroom halves your sex life? No really, here’s the article. I never knew. I wonder how much a computer reduces it. We don’t have a TV in our room, and if I let my husband read the article, we never will. Which leads me to another question. How many men in the world think they get enough sex? I tried The Mighty Google but the results weren’t exactly what I was hoping for. Had to give up on that search!

Okay, shift gears.

Tonight, I was sitting at the computer, which was the first time I’d had a chance all day to be on it, my husband had a day off and was trying to burn a CD with some of his favorite songs. The stupid thing didn’t work, but he had to go to a bored, I mean, board meeting at church, so he went to that and here I am… at last. Soaking up the rays from the monitor. Which has a strange discoloration in the lower right hand corner. It looks like a spot of green haze, which I can only assume means that the computer hates my husband and is very angry with me for letting him be on it all day. Did I mention that he was on my computer ALL DAY?

Deep breaths, Shelbi, Deep Breaths.

So, anyway, my two year old comes up and says, “Maw Ma, bee beh. Bee beh, Maw Ma, bee beh.” Those were her exact words, and translated, they mean that she wants to go to bed. She actually asked to go to bed! So I, being the wonderful mother that I am, dropped what I was doing and went to change her diaper and inform the older two that it was time for them to go to bed as well.

My five year old son pumped both of his fists in the air and said, “Yessss! I was geddin’ kinda tired, for a while now.”

Oh. My. Gosh. That’s two out of three who wanted to go to bed. That NEVER happens, people.

I’m definitely playing the lottery this week, the odds are in my favor, I tell you!!

Okay, another subject change. I read last night’s post again [when I swore not to do that] and had to giggle at my repeated words.

“Wait-staff would come from all sections to see the rocking baby. She used to flip it over on it’s back and then giggle like a crazy baby. Once she kicked just right to flip it back upright.”

“The fact that she fell asleep ‘reading’ a book makes me so proud. I’m fairly certain we have pictures of all three ‘reading’ books as babies and toddlers. My seven year old is actually reading them for real now, which is really exciting for me.”

Egads! Perhaps I should let my Editor out once in a while, just for special occasions!

So, I’m going over to Nip It In The Butt, to get a few words down. I’m setting a timer and I’m gonna type as fast as I can for however long I decide and hopefully there’ll be something worth saving when I take it home to Word to edit it [after it’s finished].

Wish me luck, y’all!
