Ya know?

Ya know when you find something really cool and you want to share it but then you realize it would make an excellent gift so you just keep it to yourself but then you research more and find there are actually alot of, let's say, accessories, to the original cool gift item, thus making it even that much more cool and interesting and something you want to share but you can't because you're waiting for the next gift-giving occasion which isn't really coming up as soon as you'd like so you start to make up excuses to give a gift, which is alright if you're only going to go with your original gift because it's totally alright to give someone you love a gift "just because" but in this instance you can't give just one gift because you've already spilled the beans to said giftee that they're gonna be in for a world of awesome gifts soon so if you give even one small part of the whole package the whole package will, in essense, be given away, so to speak, because now said giftee knows what the whole deal is about?

Yeah - well, that's me. Right now. Waiting for Father's Day to hurry up and get here already so I can get all this gift-finding-and-giving-angst finally off my chest.

And also....

You know how you know your husband has his own "chores" (i.e. making the yard all nice and pretty) and you have your chores (i.e. laundry, dishes, vacuuming and, oh yeah - this weekend in particular - potty training) and you don't want to begrudge your husband from doing what does truly need to be done and, after all, he's doing it for you as he's working on a secret hidden flower garden that you know you're absolutely going to love but it sure would be nice to see him this weekend but you can't because you're stuck in the house like a prisoner, waiting for "the poop to come down, Mommy" wondering if you should just stick her back in a diaper so she'll just poop already and only concern yourself with getting the whole peeing in the potty thing down, cuz at least she's not peeing all over the place every 10 minutes like the last time you attempted this (and, gee, it sure would be nice to interact with adults), so after you're done in the yard, you go have fun at the second movie of your weekend, Hubby, (which I really don't begrudge you either because I know how much you want to see these flicks and it's a long weekend and friends and familiy members are actually finally available to go with you to see them) while Sweetie and I stay on potty patrol.

All I'm saying is - thank goodness Nana just called and invited Sweetie and me over this afternoon while Hubby goes with his parents to see The Da Vinci Code (admittedly - I absolutely LOVED this book, but I am a complete wimp when it comes to movies and I won't go see this one - too intense for me, thank you very much.)

At any rate, I feel better now. Thank you.
