What I Know

I know some things and it's mostly stuff that you won't give a hoot about, but I'm sharing them anyway.

I know that I never remember kitchen conversions so I have to keep a chart posted inside one of my kitchen cabinets.

I know that I am getting stronger because my trainer made me do some things yesterday that I wouldn't have been able to do a month ago.

I know that I look like this when I'm done with Zumba:

Well hello, Miss Sweaty McStinkerton! What have you been doing?

Sorry. I know that was scary. Hope I didn't make you spit your beverage all over your computer screen.

I know that Sean's last two games were rained out--one in the 4th inning and one before it started. So I also know that even though we've only had 2 games so far this season, we will already be having make up games.

I know that my husband is flying out on business this week. I know that it will be hot where he is. I know he is not looking forward to it. (But it's a dry heat! ;) )

I know that it's going to be in the 80's here this week and that means I will finally get to plant some flowers and get my garden going.

I know that Tilly gets nervous when I do Zumba and cowers in a corner.

I know that I still watch reruns of "Friends" and it still makes me laugh.

I know that Phoebe is still my favorite.

I know that my children have no idea how to replace a lid on the toothpaste tube.

Ditto with the toilet paper.

I know that I have no idea what I'm making for supper tonight.

I know that a trip to the grocery store is in my imminent future.

I know that a trip to the pet store to buy a net for the fish my kids have is also on the list.

I know that we used to have a net.

I know that I have no idea where it went.

I know that "Parks & Recreation" makes me snort.

I know that watching "Awake" with my daughter on Thursday nights is something I look forward to all week. (Oh Mr. Malfoy! Look at you with your American accent and your blue eyes and your weird problem with whether or not your are dreaming your realities!)

I know that I have some graduation gifts to find and I know that I don't really know what to get.

I know that my daughter has already filled in my beloved on what to get me for Mother's Day.

I know that my beloved is trying to act like it's his idea.

I know that watching Mary and Sean play "Double Fine Happy Action Theater" on the Kinect is hilarious.

I know that playing "Double Fine Happy Action Theater" myself is even more fun.

I know that "Double Fine Happy Action Theater" sounds like a horrible Chinese translation.

I know that someone found my blog by using the search term "Patty Prayer doll".

I know that it makes me happy to think that someone else out there had one.

I know that the idea that someone else tortured their own "brother Jon" makes me ecstatic.

I know that my children are all (okay, not Maggie. She knows she needs her sleep and polices herself well.) staying up too late because the daylight hours are getting longer and they are outside doing stuff.

I know that I have a hard time calling them in on time because I love that they are out doing stuff.

And also because I get distracted.

I know that one of my children (*cough*Mary*cough*) is a complete grouch pouch in the mornings if she doesn't get enough sleep.

I know that she is a bit of a hypochondriac.

I know that I was a bit of a hypochondriac at the same age.

I don't know how my mother put up with me.

I know I should quit writing this ridiculous post.

I know that I should go shower.

I know that I'm having a hard time quitting because I'm on a roll with all the things I know.

I know that you are happy this post is done and I also know that you didn't come away knowing any more than you did when you got here.
