And that is always an awesome thing. Hubby looks so dubiously at me sometimes while I’m cooking that it’s nice to produce something not only edible but delectable. ðŸ˜‰ It was lasagna. You may be thinking, “It’s impossible to screw up lasagna.” But if you think that, you do not realize how terrible of a cook I am. In fact, before I got married I determined to not learn how to cook. I avoided it completely. After all, I was an emancipated woman. *sigh* Annnd here I am…a stay-at-home mommy (SAHM) and wife. At least I can always hold to the fact that I’m a decent shot with a grenade launcher. I’m fairly certain the majority of SAHMs can’t say that. Can you feel the awesomeness I ooze?
Yeah, that’s me…being AWESOME. Yeah, that’s not a grenade launcher.
Okay, time to be serious. *snort* Anyone else out there addicted to Words with Friends? When I first started playing, I must’ve been having beginner’s luck, because I was trouncing people, but lately…not so much. I blame it on Mr. Stinky Pants. When I started teaching high school, I got stupider. My flawless English syntax and etymological skill disappeared within a few months. The longer I taught, the worse it got. For example, I didn’t used to use the word “got” all the time. It’s a terrible word! Ugh! And then I got pregnant. And then my brain got even dumber. Now I have to use the dictionary to look up the spellings of even simple words. I thought my intelligence would return after I gave birth, but it’s not happening.
Also, Mr. Stinky Pants gave me gray hairs.
Am I alone here? Who’s with me???
Totally with you there on mommy brain. I splice words together all the time now and lose my train of thought halfway through a sentence. Oh, and I use the word “like” all the time now, which makes me sound like some dippy teenager from 1994. It’s annoying, but then the baby smiles at me and the toddler gives me random hugs and tells me she loves me, and that more than makes up for it :).
I am also afflicted with similar symptoms, which I would attribute to the fact that I am typically speaking on a first or second grader level, so that my students can understand me. That or else I just switch into Chinese…
The sad thing is that I USED to be smart. Now? Not so much. So I am yeong to play more brain games. It’s worth a try, right? ðŸ™‚
Hey, speaking Chinese means you’re very smart! I have to try to learn some Spanish this year, and I’m not sure how well it’s going to go :/
