The Casting Dock

You know you’re awesome when…

1. the once tiny little ding in your windshield has methodically expanded and sprouted branches that stretch the entire length of your windshield…and you do absolutely nothing about it.

2. the contents of a surprise gift package have been sitting on your dresser for so long that by the time they actually reach their destination, the coffee will no longer be fresh.

3. you find out your jeans have a GAPING hole right on the tuckus when one of your small group girls literally sticks her finger through it and onto your bright red undies as you are bending over to pull something out of the oven.

{no picture necessary}

4. you go 24+ hours with tissues as a stand-in for toilet paper.

5. you’ve spent the last 5 days using your husband’s toothbrush because you’re too lazy to either unpack or sift through your bag from the previous weekend away to find yours.

6. you manage to down an entire family size peanut butter YOURSELF by spooning it straight from the jar.

All this and 5 posts this week…?

Please let the record show that Lisa’s toothbrush was six steps away from mine and on the very top of her bag. I don’t think she would’ve burned a single calorie with the effort it would’ve taken her to go grab it. And who, after FIVE DAYS, finally got her toothbrush from her bag? ME.

Lisa, all of the above are reason why I think we were destined to be in each others lives somehow. Jerry, great addition to this post :)

Cute picture.

My toothbrush is sacred. If my wife used it…

Unreal. ! I’m nominating you for Most Inspiring New Blog. ;)

HAHA! Love this post! You remind me so much of myself.

9 Lisa { 03.13.11 at 12:17 pm }

Thanks for the love ladies… :) If this post was in any way something that y’all could relate to, then I know I’m in good company.

(and yes, Bryan, I intentionally singled out the ladies just to get you and Jer fuming about my pro-women, anti-men, anti-family comment bias. Put THAT in your pipe and smoke it.)

I am impressed beyond words, especially since you used a spoon to eat the peanut butter instead of the index finger!

Jerry is most understanding. Luckily for you he is not a germaphobic….I love how you confess your extreme laziness(toothbrush episode) in such a way that it turns into an endearing quality….for some!
Peanut butter, hot fudge…they’re all made to eat straight from the jar.
I had a ding in my windshield that almost became a part of me before I got it fixed. The sun shone through it making it sparkle like a crystal…too pretty to fix. The apples don’t fall too far from the tree pumpkin! I loved this post.
