Make-A-List Monday – Things I Ought to Know By Now

August 8, 2011 at 8:27 pm 1 comment

This week’s Make-A-List Monday is a list of things I ought to know now that I’m an “adult” (I use that term loosely because most days, I still feel like a kid). I’m 27 years old and these are things I just can’t figure out.

  • How to fold a fitted sheet. I still just roll them up and put them in the cabinet. Does it really matter if they have wrinkles? Nah, they’re just sheets.
  • The appeal of reality TV. I know, it’s like I’m from the Dark Age or something. But I’d rather watch a sitcom or a movie or even a soap opera any day.
  • The difference between locusts and cicadas. Okay, so I just learned this one. I always thought they were the same thing, but FYI locusts just look like grasshoppers, and cicadas are the hideous fat flying bugs that leave their shells on trees.
  • How to change a tire. I just call my husband or my dad. I’m blessed to have helpful people in my life.
  • How to properly throw a ball. Yes, I throw like a girl. But I am a girl, so it’s okay.
  • My kids listen to what I say. And I mean really listen. Especially when I’m on the phone. TT is constantly repeating things back to me with the same inflection I use. He’s four now, and it’s scary how smart he is.
  • How to keep houseplants without killing them. Maybe I’ll be better at this when my kids are grown up, but probably not. Either I forget to water them and they dry up, or I drown them and they wilt and turn yellow.
  • Knowing when a baby is teething. You’d think by the third kid, I’d know. All of mine have chewed and slobbered for months before actually cutting a tooth, so I’m never absolutely sure till after it’s in.
  • How to start a charcoal grill. Again, I have men in my life for this task.
  • How to mow the lawn. Really. Not one time. Thanks, honey.
I’m sure there’s more. I’ll update as I think of them.
Although I have gone my whole life without knowing these things, miraculously I’ve survived, thanks to wonderful friends and family to support me. 🙂

    Never changed a tire. Never will. Don’t care, either! 🙂

    My kids always listen really close when I am on a phone call. They could probably repeat it word for word. At least Rachel could. The rest of the time, neh.
