Ten Things I Know to Be True on Tuesday

  1. The rule "rain before 7, gone by 11" does not apply to Northern Ireland.
  2. Reese's Peanut Butter cups taste even better when they're shipped over an ocean and enjoyed in a new place with friends that have never heard of them before.  And the ones that are shaped like bells really look like nipples, as one volunteer so proudly pointed out to me.
  3. This is officially the longest amount of time I have ever been out of the United States.
  4. When it is your husband's turn to get up in the morning with your early-rising kids, they will sleep in until well past 7 am.
  5. When Liam wants you to laugh at something he's laughing at he'll shout "That's silly!" in your face.  Then you have to laugh.
  6. When I'm on the computer my kids will always do something naughty, like dump glue all over the carpet or flush things down the toilet.  
  7. Although it should, this does not make me use my computer less.  It just makes me totally exasperated, placing all of the blame on their ill-mannered actions that could obviously be controlled with more television.
  8. There is no Target in Northern Ireland.  I know, I'm shocked too...and just getting over my mourning phase. 
  9. The midwest is truly beautiful.  I just didn't realize it before because I was too busy wondering what I was doing there.  There is something really cool about being able to see a mile away, and about lit-up farm houses dotting the distance at night.  I miss it.
  10. I have eaten more white potatoes this week than I did all of last year.  If you are on the South Beach, Zone, or Atkins Diets....don't even bother coming over here, because you wouldn't have anything to eat.

#1 - I can relate...
#10 - I'm on that stupid Zone diet and have gained four pounds. I'm switching to potatoes.

And, I love that we are in nearly the same time zone. :)
