7) My iron gets used only for my husband’s uniforms. Since he left for deployment, the iron hasn’t seen the light of day.
6) Sometimes I’m thankful for the rain that cancels my son’s baseball practice. He loves practice and I enjoy watching him play, but it’s exhausting spending an hour and a half chasing after his sister as she tries to run onto the field to play with the big boys.
5) What do you mean plants need water?
4) I have never baked a cake. I can cook a gourmet dinner, but I can’t bake a cake.

2) I hate cleaning. With every fiber of my being.
1) I have no problem telling little white lies to my children. I see no harm in claiming the toy aisles are closed if it keeps them from throwing tantrums the second we enter Wal-Mart.
