What's Your Word Of The Year?
My word of the year is damn.
I know, I know. It's probably a ridiculous word. So many people are using words like powerful. Strong. Bold.
And I'm over here like...damn.
But it's true. I seemed to use the word damn a lot in 2016. Let me count the ways.
I said damn when....
.....my daughter acts like she's been possessed. She's a tween, so this happens often.
....at the amount of food my teenaged son shovels in his mouth. And then asks for more an hour later. And is only 102 pounds at 5'8. I want that metabolism. No fair.
....the new president was announced.
...I finished Jodi Picoult's latest book "Small Great Things." Not because it was horrible, but because it was amazing. Go read it.
....I hear anything from Adam Levine. But not a good damn. A "he's hurting my ears and how much higher is he going to go?" damn.
...I try to put things together. I hate putting things together but I can't always rely on my husband because he works. So I figure it out on my own and it doesn't always go well.
...I have to cook. I don't want to cook. I hate to cook. Can someone else cook?
...I see those Real Housewives fight on TV. It has to be fake, right? They wouldn't behave like that knowing full well their kids will see it, correct? I'd be mortified if that were real and I was their kid. But if it's fake, I'd be all, "Yeah, my mom totally pulled her weave out but hey, she got a $20,000 bonus for it which means a new Range Rover for me. Cha-ching!"
...I saw the ending of the Gilmore Girls revival. What? There has to be more! Come on, Netflix.
...my husband graduated from MTI school. He's now an official TI, which means if your family member joins the Air Force, he might very well be their instructor. He does an amazing job, and has already received a letter from an airman he helped train thanking him for all he did.
2016 was an exciting year. I am very much looking forward to 2017.
Do you have a word of the year?
