Monday Manifest: Things I Wish I Didn’t Know
Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend and that you have something fun in store for today. It’s a rainy, dreary day here and I wish I was in bed, curled up with a good book. Today is Mo’s unbirthday (you gotta do things like that when you have twins), so it’s going to be a crazy, fun-filled night. We have been celebrating unbirthdays at our house for a couple of years now… I wanted the kids to have a day that was all about them, rather than having to always share a birthday. We don’t go crazy… the unbirthday kid gets to choose where we eat out (or if they want their favorite foods at home) and they get to pick out one gift within a budgeted amount… usually $20. So, a big shout out to Mo– Happy Unbirthday!
Since it is Monday, it’s time for Monday Manifest. Today’s list is of 10 Things I Wish I Didn’t Know. What is something that would be on YOUR list? Share in the comments.
10 Things I Wish I Didn’t Know
- What it feels like to have one of the two babies in your belly turn over at 8-1/2 months. Painful. Excruciating. Like an alien coming out of your belly. Imagine the worst pain you have ever had…. and multiply THAT by 20.
- What a tornado looks like across the river from your hotel. And, having your dad say he wished he was on the top floor so he could see it closer…
- What it feels like to lose your brakes going down the drag strip at 100 MPH. Hmmmm…. about as fun as #1.
- How big the needle is that they use for a c-section spinal. Trust me… when they tell you not to look. Don’t.
- What an open incision looks like after colon surgery.
- How many feet your colon is. About 5 feet… in case you wanted to know.
- What it feels like to walk into a hospital room and seeing your husband having serious difficulties breathing.
- How much it hurts to have the weight of a car trailer shift onto your foot. This one is a toss up between being the most painful when compared to #1.
- Algebra. You know, because I use it EVERY DAY. Not.
- What it feels like to watch a tow truck pull your race car out of the river after the transmission fails. Positively heartbreaking, my readers.
