The Dammit

Dammit #1
In certain situations, a back pocket is not a good place to carry an iPhone:
1) You’re in the park, on a swing
2) You’re going to be sitting on the tiny little kids chairs in preschool
3) You have to go to the bathroom in a hurry

Dammit #2
Speaking of iPhones: I fell asleep on mine and accidentally took a photo of my boobs.

Dammit #3
Insomnia. Today I
1) Left my credit card on the counter to pay the maid instead of cash. Er, check.
2) Tried to hang the ladder to Hannah’s bunk bed in the kitchen rather than putting it back on her bed.
3) Drove past the exit for Charlotte’s school.
4) Took the clothes from the dryer and put them in the washer.

Dammit #4
I'm kinda hungry, but eating induces nausea. I've lost 10 pounds in a month. Not REALLY complaining about the weight loss, but it can’t be good that it's happened this way. I get hungry, try to eat and then, after a few bites, feel like I’m going to be sick if I continue.

NO!! I am NOT pregnant.

Dammit #5
The Chevy Volt. 230 MPG. Really?? For how many years were we told that it would be hard to meet the 2020 deadline for 35 MPG? And now we’re supposed to believe that, seemingly overnight, they were able to manage 230 MPG?

Dammit #6
Still a little ticked that someone suggested (to put it politely) that I was PMS-ing when I wrote my Dammit re: California’s Prop 8. Especially as that “someone” was a woman. However Thomas may have been right in telling me to let it go. Still working on that.

Dammit #7
Sarah Effing P A L I N. Just that. I’ll waste more time on that later.

Perhaps I am biased because my old friend Thomas took me to a Sharks game on the night that Obama was elected, but I really like your blog. As a writer, the parent of young children, and the lucky husband of an accomplished and talented woman as well, I find your writing style very engaging and your insights interesting (and poignant/funny/etc.). I have added you to my Favorites and will continue to read. All the best.

Thanks, Scott! I like the baby name app.

I also use my iPhone as a flashlight--very handy. Just turn up the brightness :)
