The reason I've chosen this for my second posting is because I found myself using almost all of my favorite phrases today. You know - those phrases we have for different occasions, like "holy moly", "geez louise", "fu...udge".
I have quite a few, many of them quite dated. David and I taught the boys early on the all-purpose usefulness of "how cool is that!" and "is that cool or what!". Melody and Brent (the s-i-l) gave me orders (i.e. dirty looks) to not use "duh" and "whatever" around the boys, but that was a losing battle. As it was with "bla bla bla". I've been REALLY good about not using the F word, "shit" and "hell" around the boys, but in private they are still my words of choice for almost any occasion.
Anyway, this morning the day began with a huge clap of unexpected thunder, which illicited an equally huge "holy crap". Then I was trying to retrieve some stuff from my over-cluttered (not to mention tiny) laundry room and some other stuff fell off the shelf onto my head, which brought forth a "what the F-N hell!" (though, of course, I didn't use the initials), followed by "give me a f-n break", followed by "seriously?", followed by "are you f'-n kidding me" as the situation went from bad to worse in my efforts to get the fallen stuff back up on the shelf.
The good news: I found my cheese slicer in the Overflow Kitchen Utensils box. "Woohoo!"
