***Yes, I tend to like to use the word "anyways"

These are all good tips to use in Life.  All that I have applied/figured out/used... TODAY!

1.  Never underestimate the power of having Good Relations with your local police department
2.  Always look behind you BEFORE throwing yard debris on a smallish child that's helping you
3.  Try and test the bathwater with your toe, not by sticking your whole foot in
4.  Thank the Inventor of Caller I.D.
5.  There is value in teaching your child what Hard Work is... and I'm not talking about Cash Value..
6.  Ice Cream really does hit the spot after a long day
7.  It's ok to skip a workout to chill out to a movie
8.  Sometimes kids can stay outside and play "until dark" instead of just 8:30pm on a summer day
9.  Even when Other Children make yours look lazy... remember they have their own issues too!
10.  The word "No" is highly under-utilized
11. There are never enough "brownie buttons" in the world when it comes to appreciating other people for doing less work than you
12.  Dirty Dishes really won't spontaeously combust if they have to sit on the counter until tomorrow
13.  There really is such thing as a "BETTER" brand of cat litter
13.5  Just because you can talk your husband into going to buy it, DOESN'T mean he will EVER voluntarily (Or un-voluntarily) change it for you
14.  I don't care how long you live with a man.  It's ALWAYS gross the way he hikes his leg to randomly fart in the house (usually right in front of you).  And that NEVER smells like roses.
15.  Growing your hair out sucks.
16.  It IS possible to have dirt get in your eyes, under both safety glasses & regular glasses!
17.  Your children WILL at Some Point use Their weaknesses against you  to Their advantage

I'm not sure if I WANT to know the story behind #'s 1, 4 and 12. Spontaneously combust Twin? Really? I think you exaggerate and you burying a kid in leaves? muahahahaha. Thanks. I needed that.

    RANTINGS
    FROM
    THE
    TIME
    OUT
    CORNER.....

    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)
