Anxious? Who, me?

Almost Monday - time to write a Listicle!  Ally from Two Normal Moms suggested we come up with a list of ten things we'd like to see happen before we die.  This is a great topic, and I will answer that question one of these days, but having just attended a funeral on Saturday, I don't think I am quite up for this one right now - it's all just a little too raw.  So, instead I will go with Ally's alternative topic, ten things that give you anxiety.

1.  Tossing and turning and staring at the clock when I should be sleeping.

2.  Sticky messes.

3.  The persistent, hungry cry of a newborn.

4.  Drycleaning chemicals.

5.  Lilah's eating habits and table manners.

6. Cooking. Especially on a timeline.

7.  Inadvertently offending someone.

8.  Writer's block.

9.  Social situations in which I know absolutely no one and am forced to make awkward small talk.

10.  Imagining Lilah as a teenager.



For more Monday Listicles fun, go vist the Listmaster!

    1. Which is why we all did so great and were so pleasantly surprise at how much fun the #MotherOfAllTweetups was! ;)

  2. #9 and #10 are ones that do it for me--most especially #9! I forgot just how much I've come to rely upon Ba.D.'s social skills and connections until the last party we attended together . . . where the one person I knew was one person more than Ba.D. knew. Gah!

    1. My other half is also the more social of the two of us. I have learned a few things from him, though!

  3. Let's get together and be anxious together about 7,8, 9 and 10. Only for 10 change Lilah's name to Sarah. Writer's block has been haunting me lately.

    1. You have yourself a date, lady! (Except maybe we avoid these topics and do some deep breathing exercises instead...?) ;)

  4. #5 YES, me too, everyday! Not Lilah's off course, but my son's... Hope #1 doesn't happen too often. Hugs xo

  7. The table manners and other kinds of etiquette gets me anxious too. My kids are probably sick of me talking about manners.....but I still say they are important life lessons.

  8. #1 makes me anxious too. I'm in denial that my boys will ever be teenagers just to avoid the anxiety. Great list!

  9. Great list! #10 is one of the biggies for me, I think being a mom of a teenaged girl might be what does me in. Yikes!

    1. We better get on our bucket lists before #10 becomes a reality! ;)

  10. I feel anxious now because I've sort of given up hoping for better table manners! (-:

  11. Your list gave me anxiety just reading it! I totally feel the same about so many of these.

  12. It is weird, but at "The persistent, hungry cry of a newborn" I found myself so in control. In fact, there were times I laugh in front of her tiny face because it was so cute.

    On the other hand, it makes me a little on edge or underpressure if the toddler is crying or fussy. And there is more loud people around. I guess, i feel less in control.

  13. Great list. And I'm with you on #10 ~~ my oldest just turned 13. Not sure how that happened.

  14. Oh #10- not only does that give me anxiety but heartburn and makes me teary as well!

  15. Ahh, someone familiar with that staring at the clock. I have many many nights that I don't go to sleep AT ALL...it does make me anxious...last week two nights in a row so I was up for like 62 hours...talk about anxiety. I love cooking, which is a good thing since I have a foodie site but I do talk about the "on a timeline" thing in my post too hahaha....

  16. I hate #1, 7 is almost a given, I'm no where near as clever or funny as I think and 9 drives me to drink which leads to 7 which leads to 1.
