    I know I'm stressed because:

    1.) I forgot about the turkey meant for Thanksgiving dinner which spoiled and exploded in the basement fridge. Then it took me over two weeks to clean up the mess and boy, did that smell.

    2.) We're missing most of our forks. I have no idea why.

    3.) The truck was covered in salt so I took it to the automatic car wash today and chose to ignore the sign that said "If you wash your car when it is less than 25 degrees, it will freeze." I did it anyway and it froze.

    4.) I ran out of dog treats and decided that dinner rolls would do just as well.

    5.) I couldn't figure out what to make for dinner this week so I roasted three chickens and told DH to get creative about the leftovers.

    6.) I forgot about a load of laundry that I had done four days ago, sniffed it and decided that the mold would be killed if I put the dryer on high heat.

    7.) I decided to stay on jury duty just to get out of the house.

    8.) I left a sandwich in my purse and didn't find it for a week.

    9.) I wore the same pair of pants for five days straight and got a rash on my thighs.

    and, finally,

    10.) We canceled Christmas and decided to try again next year.

    3) my husband is leaving me with all 5 kids to work from 10-9.

    You got me laughing, which is HUGE.... number 2? We're in the SAME boat! I don't know what the deal is! number 6. is probably true.. the other thing is to shove a bunch of dryer sheets in there too... kills the smell at least. NUmber 8. my DH lost a power bar (half eaten) in my car... never to be seen again... number 9. I've done it.. no rash, but a serious lack of pants that fit and don't make my butt look too big... number ten makes me kind of sad though...

    I'm pretty sure I'm stressed (or just sleep deprived) because when I lit a new fire in the woodstove today I layered it backwards. Large wood, small wood, kindling, cardboard and paper on TOP. I'm going to bed.

    What is it with FORKS????? [​IMG]

    We have TWELVE place-settings of silverware, but I can only find four forks. I think the others are in DS1's room, but I'm scared what else I might find if I go to look for them . . .

    Oh My Gah! Well, except for the car wash... I'm too cheap for those... I figure the dirt (and rust and dents) just make it less likely anyone will consider stealing our vehicles...

    2.) We're missing most of our forks. I have no idea why.

    My forks are okay... it's the knives and spoons that go missing... either my kids have seen too much Matrix or they're making too many mud pies... probably a mix of the too. *sigh*

    chickensducks&agoose :

    number ten makes me kind of sad though...

    Number ten is kind of important though because one of the reasons I'm stressed is that my MIL probably won't make it through the winter and her birthday is Dec 25. So we'll think about her and her life instead of gifts, etc.​
