The Hypocrite List

Otherwise entititled:  10 things I said I’d never do

Otherwise entitled: Famous Last Words

Otherwise entitled: I know it isn’t Monday… shut up

And now: list of ten, never say never edition… topic  by Not Enough Patience and Never Enough Jewelry

Make a list, check it twice, link it up. Read others. Have fun!

1. I was only going to have two children… I now have three. But really, there will be no more. The oven has been removed.

2. I was NEVER going to have a cell phone for more than emergencies… yeah, my smartphone is attached to my hip.

3. Along the same vein, I was NEVER going to text in the middle of a conversation with someone IRL…. erm, yeah… sometimes it is important, dammit!

4. I would NEVER get a tattoo. I now have two. And thinking seriously about what to do for number three.

5. I would NEVER get an eReader, not going to move away from real books… yup, got a Nook in November. I am not giving up on books completely, tho. Really, I’m not!

6. I complained for a month about the ugly purple ornaments on our work Christmas trees, cuz purple is NOT a Christmas color (they were only purple)… and then I wore a purple sweater to our Christmas potluck lunch. (this is more of a hypocritical moment, but I thought it fit nicely)

7. I said I was NEVER going to get into Twitter… yeah, I have over 7000 tweets.

8.  I was NEVER going to cuss in front of my kids. Did I tell you about the time that I had to meet with the principal because my Kindergartener had shouted “shit” in the hallway outside her office? Yeah, I told her that it was very likely that it was my fault.

9. I was going to have a really clean house… or, I guess I should say I was NEVER going to have a messy house. But guys, priorities! And seriously, don’t judge me… cuz I hate judgmental people

10. I really think I once said that I was NEVER going to have a blog… no, really, I am not just putting that here to finish my list. REALLY!

    That had me laughing from start to finish!! And re: the cell phone stuff…yah, me too. Except, well, there are some really important people in my phone. Okay, one person. And I have things to SAY! I think I could nod along to all of these, except I still have the ‘oven’ and I was pretty sure I was only going to have ONE child.
