I mentioned something to my lovely husband a few days ago, and he said it would make a great blog entry. I honestly don't think it will, but I'll give it a try anyway.
I am really hoping several things around our house will break. Why? Because then I have a reason to get new ones. I'm way too practical to just buy something new for the heck of it. So instead I'm hexing what I've got.
Here's my far-from-complete list of what I'm waiting on to break. I just KNOW I'm jinxing myself, and all of this stuff will break at the same exact time.
Refrigerator: This goes waaaaay back. My lovely husband was in charge of measuring how wide the fridge space was when we bought the house. He told me a measurement. At the time we had wanted a side-by-side fridge, so I had to find a side-by-side that fit. It turns out Someone Who Shall Remain Nameless mis-measured, and we ended up with this extremely narrow side-by-side in this huge space. While I never cease to forget to remind S of the mismeasurement, my main beef with the fridge is that I really don't like side-by-sides. The fridge is narrow, the freezer is narrow. Whenever either is open, Julia's poking her little head in to look at the food she won't eat. You can't fit a pizza into the fridge OR the freezer. It's just stupid. The ice maker is also crappy. Now I want a french door fridge with the freezer on the bottom. Seems much more practical since you can actually fit things more than 12 inches wide into either the fridge or the freezer.
Furnace: I want A/C in the house. It's reasonably cheap to add A/C if you're already replacing the furnace anyway.
Washer & dryer: I want the front loading kind. Seems like you can wash more in one load. And who doesn't want to see my torn undies going through the spin cycle?? Now that's a sight for sore eyes!
Bed: Can the bed just fall apart one day? I want a king size bed.
I want, I want, I want. Sheesh. And I was going to do a money saving blog. How in the heck is that going to happen when I'm in the mood to spend on all these big ticket items? Needless consumerism. I chastise myself at the exact time I lust after a new fridge, bed, furnace and washer & dryer.
Onesies have their place. Summer, namely. It is socially acceptable to put a baby in a onesie on a hot day. Or if the baby is a newborn. Newborns just belong in onesies.
Now that Julia is older and hot days are hopefully coming to an end, I'm getting more and more fed up with onesies. I DON'T LIKE THEM, Sam I am. Why does everyone make onesies? Julia has so very few shirts. Most of the shirts she has used to be dresses. I like non-onesie shirts on Julia. I'm not sure I understand the allure of the snap crotch for the over 6 month old - 2 year old set.
Is the sole intention of onesies to curb shirts from riding up? Is that the origin of this ongoing onesie phenomenon? Julia's shirts don't really ride up. Occasionally she'll pull up her shirt to push on her belly button, but that's kind of cute.
I do love that the dresses can become shirts. That helps immensely.
I think I'm 16. "Summer Love" by JT is my ring tone for my husband.
