Hypocrite or Normal By Today's Standards?

I feel like such a hypocrite. I feel compelled to perform a Random Act of Kindness for someone less fortunate, but at the same time anticipate looking at to laugh at probably those same people! I'm so confused!

Astronauts and Pots and Pans

I'm beginning to agree with the folks who think the moon landings were hoaxes. After all, how is it possible that we were able to send men to the moon in the 1960s (think back to the technology of the time.... or lack of it!), yet I still have a daily battle trying to fit round pans in a square cabinet! Seriously, shouldn't we solve the small daily problems of life on this planet before we worry about life on the moon!

Why the Perfect Pump?

Why is it when we pump gas in our vehicle's tank, we try to end it with an exact dollar amount? For example, if it stops at $24.78, we keep pumping gas in until it reaches $25.00.
When I'm shopping for groceries, I don't keep adding on pieces of bubble gum until the total reaches an exact dollar amount!

2012 Mayan Calendar

I'm beginnnig to think there is something to the Mayan calendar ending with the year 2012. How else to explain the fact that none of my canned goods are dated beyond December, 2012?? Does the canning industry know more than they're letting on?? New Goal: I'll be in search of canned goods dated 2013 or beyond!

Movies and Messes!

Recently, I played the movie "Mary Poppins" (which seems to be about 4 days long!). Of course, none of the kids watched it - which brings up the question - Why did the actors in earlier Disney movies all have a (fake or not) British accent? Kids today just have no interest/attention span for that. I started this movie while some of the kids were napping so I could run out for a quick haircut. My husband watched the kids for about 20 or so minutes while I was gone.
Unfortunately, the Baby chose those few minutes to serve up a very messy diaper..... and clothes..... and baby swing.... to a guy who brags that he's never changed a diaper (and, yes, we've/I've raised three kids!)! I was welcomed home with the kids saying, "You should see what's on Baby's back!" It might not have been quite so bad if she hadn't been wearing a onesie - which has to pull over her head to get it off! ( I seriously thought about cutting it off her!) She got a warm, bubbly sink bath....

House Cleaning

While I was fixing lunch one day, I realized Addison kept going past me to the trash can. After one of her trips to the trash can, I followed her back to the toy room. Seems she'd thrown away an entire box of tissues one by one. I went back to fixing lunch, then had a thought that I should check the trash can. Under the hundred or so tissues were six little pairs of shoes and several pairs of socks!
