In which i’m impressed with myself


The other night I was having a conversation with Kevin and I thought I’d share it with you.


Me:                  You know what?

Kevin:             What?

Me:                  I’m really surprised

Kevin:             Why?

Me:                  Because I’ve been so damn nice

Kevin:             Nice? How so?

Me:                  Well, we’re about 6 weeks out post surgery and I’m still being all nice and patient and stuff with Keely

Kevin:             she’s your kid Lynn

Me:                  so? She’s your kid too Kevin!

Kevin:             Well, what about your big rage last weekend?

(It’s true folks…I was on a huge whiney and ranty rage last weekend about how unappreciated I was around here)


Me:                  Hey! I’m doing the best I can.

Kevin:             you know what? You’re doing better than expected!

Me:                  see?

Kevin:             it’s ridiculous that you’re so impressed with yourself just for being nice to your own child after surgery

Me:                  well, it’s been quite a long haul

Kevin:             I suppose

Me:                  it’s true! Remember when you got fed up and said to me “when is Keely going to stop asking for stuff and get up and get it herself?”

Kevin:             not really

Me:                  and then I told you that she was ON CRUTCHES and couldn’t carry her water glass to the sink and back

Kevin:             ummm… I have no recollection of that

Me:                  yeah … so I have to get up and down a million times to help her with stuff

Kevin:             well, I guess that maybe you should write a post about it

Me:                  what?

Kevin:             yeah … In which I’m impressed with myself

And since I ALWAYS listen to Kevin I did and here it is!


I’m really quite impressed with myself


Hahaha…in which immimpressed with myself

    You should really give yourself a pat in the back. It’s not easy to maintain composure and be all happy when you’re under pressure to keep things together. My Mom went off on me just the other day when I had a sh*t fit because my Dad was giving me hell for needing to bring our dog to the vet.

    Hmm, reflecting on your post though, I have to say, I’m quite impressed with myself for not dropping so many F bombs when I get out of bed these days. I graduated from effing hell to just crap and damn it in the last couple of weeks.

        Haha! I just dropped one cause I laughed hard.

        I should probably get name cards done and go full time since I’m about to lose my job anyway, LOL! Good one!

    Actually, I can identify very well with that. I would be proud of myself, too, if I could be unannoyed with my kid for weeks after surgery.

      I’m making up for it by being annoyed with Daniel

    There is nothing wrong with being proud of this. I sometimes pat myself on the back if I don’t run in to a car in front of me if they’re driving too slow. Or if I don’t yell at someone for walking slow in front of me on the sidewalk.

    I’m impressed my ability not to kill a specific co worker ON. A. DAILY. BASIS.
