Serendipity for Losers
While frantically searching for (with no luck, after realizing TOO LATE that we were out of) toilet paper in the work restroom, I came across a new package of mis-placed legal pads, under the sink.
(Not recommended for future reference)
Thank goodness I stepped in the cat puke with my bare feet on the way to bed. I not only saved all of the other family members from having this complete grossness happen to them, but I also have squeaky clean floors, well sanitized feet and a whole new love for "indoor shoes".
While doing laundry rather than finding money (that’s just too predictable) I instead discover that my kids really DO like candy and better yet I can pinpoint what kind they like most.
I also have turned my family on to the lovely pastel colors their boring white T-shirts can become and finally, if the washer had not been overloaded it wouldn’t have moved so far from the wall and I would NEVER have found all those stray socks and underwear, not to mention the pound of lint I could make a neat little sweater from.
My kids feel very fortunate to learn the latest swear words from their parents when they were simply asking for the hundredth time what’s for dinner or if they have to take a shower?
After working out consistently for the last week, I am happy to announce that I do have muscles in places I never knew I had.
I have watched shows (meaning WHOLE episodes) with the following titles: Jerseylicious, Toddlers & Tiara’s, My Big Redneck Wedding, and My Super Sweet Sixteen, while waiting for another TV show to start.
I have lost my ability to spell, write in cursive, sense of direction, use of proper punctuation, how much a stamp even costs and patience, all to the discovery and my fascination with technology.
That’s my Serendipity (and yes, I had to use spell check)
