Life's Great Mysteries

Yesterday I painted both my finger nails and my toe nails. By tomorrow, my manicure will be chipped and horrid looking, while my pedicure will last at least 2 weeks.

Belly cries some mornings when he gets to school, because he doesn't want to stay there. But if I take him in the evenings for a parent meeting, or on the weekend for the science fair, he cries because he doesn't want to leave.

I got this great idea to write a book, wrote the first half at light speed, and now it just hanging out in my subconscious. It's a funny story and I'm enjoying reading it, I think I'm just waiting for someone else to finish writing it. Strange, especially since I'm the only one who knows how it ends.

Waterproof mascara smudges when I yawn, but I can't get it off at night without a chemical solvent and a chisel.

I stall for 5 minutes because I don't want to arrive early, then wind up 30 minutes late.

Are you trying to make me think? That is sort of dangerous. But the fingernail polish? Yeah. Totally there. I don't know why I bother.

Hopped over here from Midwest Mommy....hope you don't mind!

That mascara issue has ALWAYS irked me. And I don't even paint my nails any more....well, I do my toes...in the summer time. Hands, forget it. It's not even worth the effort.

So true about the mascara. I didn't even rub my eyes today and I look like a raccoon by tonight yet when I go to wash my face it will be impossible to get off without the help of a cotton swab and some cleaner!
