Awkward/Awesome: Face Plant.

Awkward: * The amazing face plant I took while walking up some stairs. We're talking bruises, rug burn, and twisted ankle. Since I was holding Veda it was total mom ninja reflexes that allowed me to take the full hit while protecting her. Good to know my clumsiness is trumped by being a mom. *

Awkward: * Being totally ok with the kids having a fresh baked chocolate chip cookie with their breakfast. * I stopped exercising and lost 5 pounds. Wait... That should probably be an awesome.

Awkward: * A cold sore the day before an interview. Thank you boy who kissed me in kindergarten during 'boys chase girls', I so appreciate you giving me 'whore lip'.
