A Bathroom Saga


I wash my hands.

I go to dry my hands off.

I reach for the towel, and watch as it knocks a roll of toilet paper off the top of the toilet and head right for the waiting toilet bowl.**

Do you ever see something happening, but do nothing about it because you know that even though you are watching it happen right before your eyes, your reflexes just aren't fast enough to keep it from happening?

Welcome to my life.

**Note: luckily, roll of toilet paper hits edge of toilet seat just right and lands on floor. Phew.

I once dropped a casserole dish and caught it before it hit the ground. Being pregnant for so long has made me super clumsy, but I've also gained AMAZING reflexes to make up for it!

Of course, Brooklyn. Like every single time my brain concocts something to say and sends it down to my mouth.

I can see it happening, and I know it's going to be a disaster, but there's nothing I can do to stop it so I just don't try.

Two peas in a pod, you and I.

First of all, I'm kind of sad that the first time that I hear about this is reading it on your blog... and Second--Well done! Way to be a ninja at knocking off toilet paper rolls!
