Since I'm Not Watching the Super Bowl

...and Michelle tagged me, I'll share with you my

Motherhood/Homemaker Quirk Confessions

  • If you ask me, I'll tell you that I keep chocolate chips in the apartment for baking convenience. A bit closer to the truth would be that I keep them for emergency chocolate fixes, which usually occur on a daily basis and at regular intervals throughout the day.
  • I will inhale lightweight fiction (Sophie Kinsella, et al.) while drying my hair, preparing Chloe's lunch for school, playing Uno with the kids (I can multi-task with the best of them). However, it takes me a good month to read through non-fiction books (which explains why Total Truth has been on my sidebar for so long. It's not from lack of blogging updates, I'll tell you that much).
  • I play with the kids' silly putty while I watch TV at night.
  • I will fill my sink with dirty dishes and hot, sudsy water, then I'll walk away. I hope that somehow the dishes will wash themselves while I am busy doing more important things, like blogging. They never do. But sometimes Steve comes home in the interim and is baffled by the abandoned sink, so he does them. Which is just as good.
  • Grapes are $4.49/lb at my local grocery store. I know that's not a motherhood confession, but someone should be confessing to something related to that, because it is just wrong.

Consider my tag obligations complete...

Holy cow on the grapes! I'm with you on the chocolate and dishes. Not so much on the silly putty! LOL

Chelle,
that is the local grocer...if I go two blocks farther south I can find them for $3.29/lb.

I do the dishes thing all the time too . . . only I get stuck having to stick my hand in that disgusting, dirty, cold water the next morning and refill the sink with hot, soapy water . . . and actually DO them this time.

I share your love for chocolate chips.

My son inhales grapes, so that would be a very bad thing.

Chocolate chips are much better surrounded by a little dough - baked or not. I believe these words came out of Kevin's mouth the other night: "How many cookies have you eaten today?" I blame the excessive cookie/cookie dough eating on cabin fever!

Oh yes and that is way too much to pay for grapes. Next time they are on sale at Meijer I'll overnight some to you - it'll still be cheaper. : )

I used to yell at Nathan for eating my chocolate chips until I discovered how yummy they are without the cookie! I think this almost calls for a survey. Women of america...........how many of you will admit an adiction to CHOCOLATE CHIPS.
