Tell the Truth Tuesday

1. I might have deleted our entire inbox. Twice. That's the last time Lisa asks me to do a mail merge.

2. We made dinner for Lisa's fam as an excuse to see Ben last night. The entire drive over, we discussed the importance of not overstaying our welcome and definitely not eating the food we specifically made for them. Even if they insisted (which I knew Lisa would) we would stand our ground and leave before dinner so they would have leftovers. We stayed (of course), Lydia and I ate (of course) and John lectured me the entire ride home.

3. Scheduling blog posts without Lisa's edits gives me an ulcer.

4. Sending emails without Lisa reviewing makes it double in size.

[Editorial note from Laura: I've opted not to correct the typos in Lisa's truths added via her DroidX. Somehow they're funnier this way.]

5. i was desperate for Laura to stya for dinner last night. Theres only so much you can discuscs baby poop without breaking down and begging for your macbook.

6. i'm scared of turning into a mommy blogger. theres about 10 times every day i loko at ben and want to tweet a picturoe of him. sad, but true.

7. i might have started writing in a notebook. just to keept he wheels greased.

8. imiss oyu guys. desperately. maternity leave is for suckers. or people who enjoy discussing baby poop.

9. it's taking every ounce of my willpower not to add a picture of ben to this post.

10. i'm kind of crushedthat lone star was cancelled. that guy was really hot.

I leave tomorrow for Sirens and I'm alternating between extreme excitement and total angst because I hate leaving home.

It's worse because I'm leaving my niece Walelu for the first time ever

I'm hiding in the bathroom posting this comment from my iPhone so if it's misspelled laugh and get over it

The only 'goal' I ever made in my writing was to have an agent by the time I was 30... I now have roughly 30 days in which to accomplish this feat...

Matthew Rush said...

Only 30 more to go ...

And yes, this post is much better unedited. So real.

Katie said...

Please post more pics of that adorable Ben! And Laura, you're right. The comments WITH typos is hysterical. Poor computer deprived Lisa.

And Lisa, feel free to do mommy posts occasionally - I'd love to relive my babies vicariously. So fun!

Love you guys!

Christine Fonseca said...

Ahh!! Love the typos! Good call Laura!

The magic of baby poop. Of course you can post about it and how many diapers you change. And yes, please more pictures too. There's nothing better than a baby. and poop.

Sara McClung ♥ said...

Aw, I'm all for you posting Ben pictures :)

<3

Carolyn V. said...

I love the typos too. Baby poop is okay to talk about until they hit the solid food stage. Then it's just so, so gross.

Karen Amanda Hooper said...

I'm with Sara. Ben pictures please!
*goes off to Google Lonestar guy*

Little Ms J said...

I heart the typos! Aw, darling. You will be pulling your hair out with edits in no time.

Corey Schwartz said...

Yes, we want Ben pics. Desperately. Some of us have to live vicariously through others because our husbands won't let us have another.

Nicole Zoltack said...

There's nothing wrong with posting more pictures! I'm all for baby pics.

Loretta Nyhan said...

All the more fun because I'm sure the typos are KILLING Lisa!

Shannon Whitney Messenger said...

*snert* I love that you're leaving the typos in. And I seriously think we should all take bets on when Lisa comes back in full force. I think she'll make it about 2 more weeks, max. ;)

Marsha Sigman said...

The typos make it so gritty and real...like baby poop.lol

Unfortunatley I could discuscs that for a long time.
Somethings you just can't unsee...

Lisa Potts said...

Bring on the baby pics, and poop can be funny. I remember this one time...well, come to think of it, that story is kinda gross.

Shannon O'Donnell said...

Ha ha. Typos = great fun! Lisa, Ben pics are wanted - bring 'em on! :-0

Tere Kirkland said...

Love to hear from you, Lisa, even if all you're going to talk about is baby poop. I'll put up with that as long as there are pictures of baby Benny.

Laura, you're such a good sister, eating Lisa's dinner like that! ;)

Yat-Yee said...

Seriously, you are going to talk about posting pic of your baby, twice, and you don't do it? C'mon! Get a pic here already. Nobody here is going to think less of you as a writer if you do.

Please thank your husband for hiding your laptop. Reading your typos is not only fun, but it makes me realize I'm not the only one whose typing is filled with such lovely unwords.

Elana Johnson said...

LOL! Love this truthful Tuesday. :)

Gail said...

Yes, yes, yes....we WANT baby pics!!!!

Slamdunk said...

Funny stuff.

We hope to be nearing the end of our kiddo poop days, but it is still a powerful memory.

Lori W. said...

More baby pictures = great. I love reading your posts. Always make me smile. Lisa can claim sleep deprivation for the next year and make as many typos as she wants.

Jemi Fraser said...

You can add all the baby pics you like - there's nothing better in the whole wide world :)

Dominique said...

I know what you mean about sister edits. My sister could chop anything I write in half. Why are sisters so good at seeing through things?

Writing in notebooks is awesome. I highly recommend it.

Don't call this a comeback

So it’s been a minute. Or 10. Or truthfully more like 2,102,400. At least we think that’s how many minutes there are in 3 years, but let...
