Ten Things Tuesday- Instantly

Why do some things always go together?
Sometimes both are good
sometimes it's a mix.

This week's Ten Things Tuesday is about when one thing happens, instantly something else does .

1. Payday
  You realize that as soon as you have your check, it's already spent. On bills.

2. Looking for something
   You are looking for someone's phone number. In the same instant, you realize you put it up so you would never lose it. If only you knew where that was.

3. Eating that second HUGE slice of yummy peanut butter brownie cheesecake
   Instantly you realize that you should not be eating another piece. No matter how good it tastes. You'll pay for it later. But, that's later and you eat it anyway.


 4. You get some extra money from somewhere or someone
   You realize,WOOHOO!, you can buy socks. Or something equally satisfying.

5. Painting
   Instantly you realize that you really should have put on your grubbies instead just wearing what you already have on.

6. Waking up early
   You wake up on a day where there is no school and no where to be. You just wake up, look at the clock and think " Holy crap, I'm late". Instantly awake, you drag yourself out of bed and leave the room. Once you are up, you realize you don't have to get up today.

7. Getting overtime
   Overtime sucks. You have to be at work longer. Who likes that? When it comes though, you instantly recognize extra moolah comin' your way.

8. Mealtimes
   You go in the kitchen to fix a meal for everyone, at the time knowing you have no clue what you are going to make.

9. Winner
  Does anyone really become a winner instantly of a BIG cash prize? They are always $5 or $10 tops. I know I won a sweepstakes once, but that wasn't an instant winner thing.

10. Children
     If you have children or nieces or nephews, I am sure you can agree. When another kid does something to them, like pick on or hit and you instantly dislike that kid. Completely. It can be years later and they get along fine. You still don't like him/her.

  1. Yes. Yes to all 10. You could have stopped at number 1, though. I wish just one time I'd get a paycheck and wonder what I was going to spend all that money on . . .instead of knowing exactly where each cent needs to go. boo.

    1. I know. Sometimes I wonder what would happen if I skipped the bills for just one month. Probably nothing good, so I pay them.

  2. Only instantly dislike? You mean smacking them in the back of the head is probably not a good thing to do?

    1. Society tends to frown on that. But, there is always the voodoo doll.

  3. Yep, I just won $10 today on a Bingo scratch ticket. I think I have lived thru all 10 on your list. Whenever we have extra money it goes towards work on the car. That car gets better care than I do.

    1. Why is extra money never really extra?

  4. Man, my life is the same as Belle's. I always know where the money is going before it comes in - the car! I sit around hoping to win money just to fix it - not even thinking maybe we could afford socks too! WOW! Blah... I'm also completely guilty of the painting thing and I have all the stained clothes to prove it. :/

  5. Your creative mind strikes again. Regarding #10, my nephew's good friend told him he shouldn't be outside without a jacket on. They are both 5 years old. I didn't like her bossing him around like that, and worried he'll eventually marry her, even though he did need to put a jacket on.

  6. Yes! I agree with what you said about children. This is true, and, oh, how I wish it wasn't the case.
