I repeat myself at least a dozen times a day. My husband can attest to this. I need to come up with some new catch phrases.
On any given day, here are a few things that come flying out of my mouth before I realize what is happening...
'I can't find (fill in the blank).'
'Why would I buy that? I can totally make that.'
'Well, I tried.'
'Well, I burnt the food.'
'I am just distracted right now, that doesn't normally happen.'
'Is that what you are going for?'
'I feel like I just cleaned up in here, why is there stuff every where?!'
'PLEASE stop rough housing in here!' (said with a please, but with a tone and glare that are not so polite).
'Do NOT put anything on that table, Please.' (our dining room table is still yet to be varnished. I am very protective of it. So much so, that O asked me, 'why are you so worried about that table mom? It is just a table.'
'Hmm...I didn't really think this through.'
'The idea in my head worked a lot better.'
'I can not remember what I came in here for....Ohh what is this? I will work on that.' Proceed to pull out project #7 for the day.
'Well, the house was clean earlier today, but then we started working on ____'
'Today is not going as planned.'
