Lessons Learned

Here are a few lessons I learned in the past few weeks:

  • Always remember how much you love football season during the fall before planning anything.
  • Never let your potty trained child con you into letting her drink an entire glass of water before bed time (unless of course you like waking up in the middle of the night to change soiled bed sheets.
  • Never suggest an Adult Toy party as your next fundraiser for your mom's group unless you want them to look at you like you're some sex fiend. (God forbid if I spice things up a bit right?)
  • Never volunteer to do the mom's group newsletter. It's a lot of work with little appreciation. There's also that one person that's late for a deadline and then complains that there are things missing from the newsletter. Uh yeah...if you don't make the deadline, it doesn't make it in. These deadlines are for a reason...I have a life and I've got better things to do than sit around waiting for people to actually read the emails about deadlines.
  • If you're lactose intolerant...that smoothie drink will catch up with you eventually.
  • Make sure to warn the public if you've had a smoothie.
  • I need to get a prescription for xanax if I'm going to deal with the morons that call themselves "Customer Support" at Direct TV and AT and T.

Were you in the moms' club when they put together an adult-toy gift basket to be auctioned off at a luncheon? I think some of the members involved with that one have moved on, but there is a precedent...

Can I come to the adult toy party?

Man, I wish I was in your Mom's group! An adult toy party sounds like a lot more fun than candles or Tupperware! ;-)

Too bad we can't start a mom's group together - about the only sales parties I can stand are the adult toy ones!

I've been wanting to host want of those adult toy parties. They sound like fun.

Haha, I suggested a party like that for my SIL's bachelorette party! Cherann suggests it for a mom's group! HAHAHA. (I would TOTALLY be in your mom's group if I could!!!)

All very good lessons learned.

this made me laugh. a lot...
although, revenge is sweet and perhaps you could dig a little in, somewhere, in that newsletter project for their less than kind reaction to your toy party suggestion???
just a thought...

HAHAHAHA. Fabulous list.

I had to get up and get change Fluffy's bedsheets last night, so that one particularly resonates with me...

Oh, and can I join your women's group?
