...that it snows every weekend we need to make a trip over the mountains, and is glorious every weekend we plan to stay home?
...that the children were throwing-up sick for practically the whole winter last year when my husband was 51/2 hours away most of the time, but this year, when I have help, everyone's well? (I am grateful that they're well, of course, though!)
...Now that we're selling a house, the inspector and the bank come up with thousands of dollars worth of exceptions (that we have to fix or compensate for), but a couple years ago, when we were buying the same house, before we made thousands of dollars worth of improvements, the inspector and the bank couldn't come up with a thing?
...that the fashionable shoes that felt so comfortable in the shoe store give me blisters, but the out-of-style shoes I picked up at a thrift store feel like clouds on my feet?
...that I can duplicate the ingredients of the salads I like to order in restaurants, but I can't make them taste anywhere near as good?
...that when we have the time, we don't have the money, and when we have the money we don't have the time for (you name it!)?
...that I can't think of a thing to tell my husband to pick up at the grocery store until right before he walks in the front door?
...the big boys can whine and complain that they never have enough clothes, but then they leave half of them here when they go back to school?
...those pencils and pens you always put on the desk or by the phone never do reappear?
...you can think of a million things to blog about if you're in the car on the way somewhere, or just drifting off to sleep, or in the middle of changing a poopy diaper, but when you sit down to write, you draw a blank?
