I am not a superstitious person, but in light of today being Friday the 13th... I thought I'd share some fun superstitious things I've found:

1.  Pirates believed that piercing the ears with such precious metals as silver and gold improved one's eyesight.
2. Some motorcycle enthusiasts hang a biker's bell from a portion of their bike to protect themselves from evil road spirits.
3. Before traveling a person should, apparently, sit on their luggage.
4.  It is bad luck to put new shoes on a bed (or a table).
5.  A bird in the house is a sign of a death
6.  A loaf of bread should never be turned upside down after a slice has been cut from it.
7.  Never take a broom along when you move. Throw it out and buy a new one.
8.  If the first butterfly you see in the year is white, you will have good luck all year.
9.  If a black cat walks towards you, it brings good fortune, but if it walks away, it takes the good luck with it.
10.  An acorn at the window will keep lightning out.
11.  A dog howling at night when someone in the house is sick is a bad omen.
12.  It’s bad luck to leave a house through a different door than the one used to come into it.
13.  A horseshoe hung in the bedroom will keep nightmares away.

And now I'm going to go turn on my night light... It's bed time! And The Boogeyman often sleeps under my bed, or in my closet.

That's because we didn't grow up believing in superstitions Twin.

    Dear Twin... sometimes words come out of my mouth before my brain has a chance to stop them... well aint that the life...

    Some people make parenting look sooo easy.  They are big fat liar pants.  Parenting is hard.  Kids can be awful.  They don't come with an Instruction Manual.  I started young and have grown up with them.  We have gone through a lot together.  And I would have never been able to do it without the wonderful family I have.  I started blogging because of Twin.  She said that it wasn't nice of me to take a Bad Day out on the Hubby or the Brats.  And so this began.... it's my Rantings From The Time Out Corner... because, let's face it - when I'm full on Cranky Pants... my hubby doesn't fail to make me go Sit One Out for the Team.  (for more see ME above)
