L.O.V.E.

Things I "say" I love.

1. I love it when you talk to me like that, Hannah.
2. I love it when leave all the lights on Connor.
3. I love it when I have to be asked the same question over and over again, because you think eventually I will give you the answer you want, Hannah.
4. I love it that my car is a pigsty all the time.
5. I love it that Garrin talks more for Bill than for me.
6. I love having to turn all the dirty clothes right side in, Hannah and Bill.
7. I love washing laundry that is clean and still folded but in your hamper, Hannah.
8. I love opening the dishwasher in the morning and the dishwasher hasn't been run.
9. I love dumping out mostly full bottles of water that my kids don't drink.
10. I love going to the pool and seeing that Hannah hasn't taken one sip of her Gatorade.
11. I love it when Hannah wears the same workout suit four days in a row - because that is her favorite at the moment.
12. I love it when it is quiet and Garrin is squeezing out toothpaste/lotion/face scrub/shampoo onto the carpet.
13. I love going upstairs and every stinking light is on after the kids have left for school.
14. I love when the kids clean up the downstairs toy room and park all 5 of Garrin's ride-on toys in the doorway so you can't get it.
15. I love it when I work my ass off at the gym and I gain weight.

Speaking of number 15 on the second list--where is your accountability log? Did you give up? DON'T! I haven't been on the treadmill in a week with this cold. I think I would pass out.
