The facts of life…


I’ve come to the conclusion that there are just some facts of my life that I will end up having to deal with day in and out no matter what..   Some are fixable and some are just funny to think about, and others … well are just facts of life.


It’s a fact of life that a pair of jumper cables will be a permanent fixture in the front seat of my car. 


It’s a fact of life that before each payday I will have no more than $4 in my check book.


It’s a fact of life that the crush button on my Ice maker will only work when it wants to, apparently it has an attitude.


… I will always be surprised by what my kids do next.


… when I think things are ready to slow down and even out something else will always come up


… the antique VW sitting in my driveway will probably continue sitting there only to be driven one or two days a year.  And even though we have discussed selling it… it will probably stay a permanent fixture in our life.  


… I will be sweeping and mopping my dining room and kitchen floors until the end of time.  Due to two rowdy dogs and 3 kids.


… I will always need to run to the store for something even though we just went grocery shopping.


… when hubby is away I become obsessive about checking my door and window locks and I look behind my shower curtain before I go to bed. 


… gas prices will never hit 89cent a gallon again.



While there are a hundred more things I could list, that I’ve just learned to live with… I’d like to hear of some things that you’ve learned to just… live with.

  1. Things that I’ve learned to just….live with:

    the fact that bedtime doesn’t really mean bedtime and that children will get up about 10 times before actually falling asleep;

    the irony that an ashore job isn’t really an “at home every night” kind of job;

    that I’ll never really get to scrapbooking, because the task is overwhelming and events keep happening to fill the empty pages (I just can’t keep up)…

    boy, I could go on and on.

    Neat post!

  2. that I’ll also probably never get to scrapbooking any of the bazillion photos I have either;

    that I’ll never have my car as clean as my husband would like it to be;

    that I’ll never watch all the programs on my DVR;


    I agree ….neat post…….great to hear from you Megan 🙂
