I can't decided what to title this

I don't know what has been going on lately. All I know is that I can't keep up with it. I have had something going on every night for what seems like forever. And a million things going on everyday for forever. And now it is almost Christmas and I have hardly anything done for it. I keep having dreams that it is Christmas morning and I remember I still haven't gotten my kids or Dwight anything and it is majorly stressful. But, I am taking time out of my never ending schedule to do a quick post.
I gave Howie 2 quarters the other day. He put them in his pocket and said he was going to save them for the snack machine at the YMCA. Then when he went to bed, he decided he had to sleep in his clothes. He had the quarters in his pocket and he didn't want to lose them. I guess he felt that it was safest to just keep them in his pocket and sleep in his clothes. The next morning he wouldn't let me change his clothes either. He had 2 quarters in his pocket.... I was running late, and decided I didn't really care what he wore to the YMCA. When we got there, he was missing one of his quarters. All that work, and he still lost one. I gave him another and all was well. That night, at about 3 in the morning, Howie woke me up all excited. He found his other quarter and he wanted to know if we could go back to the YMCA and get some fruit snacks.
Yesterday Ella and I were out getting a couple things when she saw this:

She thought it was the funniest thing ever and was begging me to buy it for Dad. Little did she know, her dad would probably love it!

My last little thing going on is really more like a complaint. Everyone keeps using my toothbrush! Once I find out it has been in someone else mouth I am no longer able to use it. I go to brush my teeth, and I notice my toothbrush is wet, when it should be dry because it has been several hours since I used it. Ella has used it, Calvin used another one, then I caught Howie using one. I went out and bought several more and decided to hide the extras. When I got up the next morning my toothbrush was out of its spot and resting on Dwight's sink, and it was wet!! I had to break out my spare one. Then when Dwight came in I got on to him about using my toothbrush. I went on to tell him how disgusting I thought it was and how I had to get a new one out. I guess I offended him because when he came back in the bathroom he started going on about me using his sink and mirror and how sick that was and now he was going to have to have it all replaced. Am I the only one that can't share a toothbrush? Is it me with the problem? Where's Memzy?

Sharing a toothbrush is only disgusting if you have a problem picking rotten food out of someone's teeth and eating it.

PS. when my kids can't find their toothbrushes, I always tell them to use dads.

I can see not wanting to share your toothbrush with the kids, but I'm assuming you swap spit with the hubby on a regular basis... so what gives? If you share a drink with him do you have to use two straws?

Memzy said...

I'm with you on the toothbrush thing. It's the "getting gross bits of crap from someone else's teeth on your own" that really gets me. I threw up a little in my mouth just thinking about it.

Gty & I have interchangable toothbrushes. We prolly just love each other more than you gize.

Hot Pants said...

That's not love Landee, and you prolly need some penicillin.

I have toothbrushed for each of my kids, but in the assembly line we call our morning routine, only one gets broken out. (I am lazy like that.)

Also, this one is a secret, I have used Tom's toothbrush when I am mad at him. It is my silent revenge. I am sure if there is on person in the whole world that feels more strongly about someone using their toothbrush, it is Tom. Don't tell, he might kill me.

I'm with those of you who vote to keep your toothbrush out of the hands of others. And your graphic description of food bits, etc. has reconfirmed my obsession!

Markie: I don't share my drink with Gus either.

It is more than food too, gize. Don't forget about plaque. I also have a hard time sharing drinks, taking a bite of a sandwich in the same spot where the last bite was taken and never ever ever in a million years would I ever share any kind of dairy product.

Katie, the joke is on you for using Tom toothbrush because Tom's mouth is just as dirty as yours. It is like if you were to blow your nose into his underwear. Yeah he has snot all over his underwear but you still had to put your face in there.

Sam, Shel & Co said...

Ewwww. I love Sam, and yes we "swap spit" and sometimes share drinks. But, NEVER the toothbrush. Ugh!

Emily said...

Nothing says white trash like santa langerie. Ditto on the toothbrush thing. Nasty!

Casey said...

Not to Alarm you but it has been documented by the academy of periodontology that Periodontal Disease "Gum Disease" can be passed along ....... you don't want to get me started ..

Annie said...

I'm having the same problem with the toothbrush thing.

Hey I'm thinking about coming to see you after Christmas. Are you guys going to be too busy?

Hot Pants said...

We don't have any plans, come on up!

ManicMandee said...

I will not share my toothbrush with anyone!
Did you buy the nice little Santa outfit for Dwight by the way?

Memzy said...

Oh she bought it. But the question is, how many times has she used it?
