    -Why my students claim to understand the material...then the day the test comes...they complain that they are so confused....

    -Why I can't find the square jolly rancher candy in the bubble packets...

    -Why I continue to stay at this ridiculous 2nd job...

    -Why I procrastinate...

    -Why before dinner my boyfriend will say that we can't get married right now b/c there are still issues we need to clear up...then after dinner tells me I need to start looking for daycare for our future kid...WTF?!?!?!


    you?

    *Why can't I get a teaching job when I hear so many other success stories...

    *Why can't I make more money so we could afford to move out while paying off bills...

    ...other than that, I have no more "why's"!

    Why do I get a cold once a month?

    Why are the kids in my class so hyper this year?

    Why does it keep raining after it snows?

    WHY don't profs tell you what they want instead of grading you on your mind-reading abilities?
    WHY does it take so long to get answers to graduate school applications?
    WHY does everything important, big, and pressurizing all have to be done within the same week?!

    Why does every crisis with the kids happen while I'm using the bathroom???

    For instance...MOOOOOOMMMMMMMMMMMMMM, HURRY THERE"S BLOOD...only to find out that there's a two inch gash in a child's face., or....

    MOMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM, THERE"S BLOOOOOODDDDDDD...and a quarter inch of missing upper lip.

    How, bout <crash> MOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM, I THINK I HURT SOMETHING........gee, the orthepedic surgeon says that it should only require two operations to reset the bones and reattatch the tendons in your wrist.

    Oh, and my personal favorite....MOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMMMMM, *name of child* IS IN THE KITCHEN!!!!.....and said child, who doesn't yet walk is on top of the refrigerator (I still haven't figured out how he did that).

    -why my son blames me for for not raising him right - when I know he never listened to a thing I tried to teach him

    -why there is a sink full of dishes, yet nobody in the house admits to eating anything for the last 3 days

    Why american family fitness won't answer their phone or why there's never anyone there to answer future membership questions.

    Why are so many of the students on my team insane?

    Why can't I find the time to go Christmas shopping?

    Why are we only getting "precipitation" when it's 50 degrees and above and NOTHING when it was 40 degrees and below? (Seriously, we'd have over a foot of snow if it was snow instead of rain TODAY alone...not counting the rain from last night!)

    and a how....

    How am I going to loose 47 lbs between now and the end of June?????

    My insurance won't pay for a reduction until I'm 27% BMI because they think the boobies will go away with the weight (they won't, but I don't have a choice but to loose it if I want the back/neck pain gone).
    ETA: and I want it done over the summer so I have all summer to recoup instead of having to go back to work right after or take the time off.

    Oh that is a good reason to start losing weight than. Don't you hate insurance's rules. I lost ten pounds by replacing my gartorade I used to drink with water.

    As for the rain in Florida - it rains here almost everyday, and often windy - we take the kids out every day unless there are gale force winds! Tell the kids to bring jackets and hats and send them out to play in the rain! I promise it won't hurt them or give them colds.

    Why - why is it every single time we sit down to dinner the phone rings?

    Why has my ATT service suddenly said they don't have my correct address?? What? After 7 years?

    Why is it the weight you lose - 100 lbs. - then regain - 30. lbs - does not have the decency to go back where it came from, but all of it heads to the equator?? Not fair.

    Why do little boys make rocket ships our of grapes at snack time?

    Why is it the more tired a child is, the less he can sit still????
