The 18 Worst Things For Left-Handed People
did you know it’s Left-Handers Day? I didn’t until today
a few tidbits about me and this list on this day
i’m a lefty, duh
I have forever despised erasable pens because my papers always ended up just being one giant ink smear I was dragging across the page
i was convinced that the outside of my left hand would be permanently dyed with blue ink
i learned to write in notebooks and binders by turning my paper to a 90° angle (the lines running up and down, not from side-to-side like you righties are spoiled with)
i still cannot use leftie scissors, it’s just not a skill i possess
i do pretty much everything except write as a righty
wtf happened to the US going metric? wasn’t that a thing that was supposed to happen? i remember having to learn metric conversions in grade school because we were going to metric as a planet… who put the kibosh on that?
did i ever tell you about the fact that when i went into kindergarten my mom was getting reports back from school that i had a learning disability? that my motor skills were severely lacking and concerning? i couldn’t color, couldn’t cut, couldn’t do the things the other kids were doing? well my mom thought this was crazy because she watched me do all that stuff all day at home so she sat in my class one day… it wasn’t long before she realized EACH TIME I PICKED SOMETHING UP THEY WERE TAKING IT OUT OF MY LEFT HAND AND PUTTING IT INTO MY RIGHT. y’all, even in the early 80’s teachers just assumed that if kid repeatedly picked something up with their left-hand that they were just challenged… not that they were left-handed!

one of the many times i've died of his sweetness

roger:
no, she's not your friend. because she's MY friend.
me:
good, I hope you and Aunt Sandy are very good friends so that some day when you need to talk to someone and don't want to talk to me you will talk to her.
roger:
(stopping what he's doing, looking at me puzzled and with the sweetest tone) but I want to always talk to you.
<and then my heart swelled and exploded into tears down my face. dreading the day my kids roll their eyes and say "she's crying Again.">

soooo…. how fast do eyebrows grow?

my esthetician got out of the biz back in February and my brows have been a hot mess ever since. I had been going to her for 12 years, she was amazing! the first person I ever allowed to put wax on my brows, I’m very picky when it comes to such things.

since she stopped I tried threading once, it was meh, I don’t get the hype.

so I finally sucked it up and went to get my brows waxed (2nd time getting them done since Feb, you can imagine the look I was cultivating) and I’ve pretty much been crying ever since. I knew before I even looked in the mirror that she assaulted my face - first off it only took her all of 90 seconds (my lady took 15min.) secondly I could tell where she put the wax and that’s NOT where I wanted hair pulled from (plus she just slopped on the wax and pulled, my lady spent so much time carefully waxing tiny areas, tweezing, cutting, oh man do I miss her!)

so now I just need to know how long until I’m happy looking at these things again. I don’t really understand how she messed this up, I clearly said “just clean up all the little hairs growing in” so I don’t get how that became “just go ahead and make them an entirely new shape basically changing their positioning on my face”

anyway, whine whine whine, I want my brows back and am terrified that it’ll take another 33yrs to grow them again. anyone have any advice/experience with this?

this is exactly why I love Tumblr
I posted about Belly climbing out and as I read the suggestions kept thinking” c’Mon guys, do I really come across that dumb? Of course it’s on the lowest setting”
But then I was sitting in her room this afternoon and sure enough, nope. i AM that dumb. since the last time we dropped it i’ve been thinking we put it all the way down.
Hoping that just bought us a few more months!
I tend to be a Ready, Fire, Aim kinda person so i’m not at all surprised by this. Thanks for keeping me in check Tumblees!

slow your roll 15monther!
and now I need help&#8230; when Roger started this he was 18mos, we immediately turned his bed into a toddler bed and that was that. there&#8217;s such a huge difference between an 18monther and a 15monther, she&#8217;s just not ready for a toddler bed. but I&#8217;m not sure what else to do.
do we let her fall a couple of times and hope that deters her from trying again? or do we turn it into a toddler bed tout de suite so she doesn&#8217;t get hurt even though she might get hurt getting out of bed on her own during the night once she realizes the freedom?

i’m not even a Savannah fan but watching all the baby/new momma advice on The Today Show made me cry

i’m just such a crier when it comes to being a momma, it’s just the most powerful thing I’ve ever known and to think of all this person is about to experience just makes the tears pour down with happiness.

it’s so freakin amazing!
