Thirteen Things I've Broken

1. My tooth at about the age of 2. Probably looked alot like this... BIG SMILE.

2. A pair of sunglasses. I just can't keep them...

3. Contact with friends. So many when you've moved as much as I have... Still in contact with my first best friend, Lisa. Wish I could say the same for Emily. We hung out together from 1st grade through...hmmm, 6th and then on and off until 10th when I moved out of state.

4. My skin. I was my parent's held breath. I dove off rocking chairs, fell out of strollers [although, really, was that my fault? :D Just an oversight, perhaps?], stepped on a garbage bag with broken glass at the bottom of it...ouch, that hurt and needed stitches in my pinky toe, too.

5. Another pair of sunglasses. Seriously, I think I'm cursed.

6. ...oh rules. I've broken a few rules in my day. *cough*

7. Hearts? I don't think so, although my mom says yes. *shaking head* Doesn't sound right to me. I'm not a heartbreaker I don't think...

8. Bronchioles and Alvioli. I'm sure of it. Smoking will do that. Thank God I'm a quitter. LOL

9. A Toyota Tercel. Mine was white, four door, standard [I'd love a standard now... sorry kiddo, I can't dig through the diaper bag just to get you your Thomas the Tank engine toy. I'm driving. See mommy driving?]

10. Blood vessels. Not exactly the same as skin but close. Actually, funny story. My lastest bruise came from trying to grab a book with my legs. I was *cough* reading in the bathroom...come on, I'm a mom. I'm up right now at 1am and sometimes, my only free time is the 30seconds to 3 min I get in there everyday... Well, the book got bumped off the counter and I didn't want it to fall on the floor. So, I'm standing in front of the sink with wet hands and I go for it with my legs. My right calf catches that cover at just the right angle and my left knee snaps my legs together and whammo! the bookcover completely breaks in half...oh good one.

11. Book covers. Ouch, that was way more painful than expected.

12. Promises. Not seemingly, really important ones, but the important hidden promises I break by using the term maybe. For example, will you read this book to me, Mom?
"Maybe later, okay?"

13. Did I mention sunglasses? I bought a pair several weeks ago from the dollar store. I thought, they never last anyway, just go cheap. Well, those things never even made it home. Grrr.

  1. There's no shame in reading in the bathroom; I bring the laptop when I take a bath sometimes. (One of these days I'm gonna electrocute myself, I just know it.)
    And yeah, I got plenty of bruises from catching books or balancing them precariously.

    The skin one, well, that sounds awfully painful.

  2. Woman, stay away from my sunglasses! I need them. They're prescription ones. LOL!

  3. Oh man I am SO with you. My youngest gets reamed by everyone for breaking stuff and secretly I think "He comes by it honestly". Poor kid.
    And I can't keep sunglasses either. Hence, the reason I go with cheap ones or (like now) glasses that change with the light.
    Great TT, Morgan.

  4. I have never broken any bones but when it comes to other stuff that's a

  5. LOL, I break sunglasses all the time. I just can't help it. Why do they make them so breakable?
    Great list :)

  6. great list . . .

    I could add . . out in a sweat when a deadline approached =)

  7. My hubby loses sunglasses. I've convinced him to buy cheap ones.

    Doesn't seem like that's helping you, honey!

  8. That's quite a list!


    My TT is at

  9. I laugh at how you say you broke your tercel!! Hahahaha

    I've broken many cars or put trhem in the way of those who break them. We better not drive together. I also have no complete set of sunglasses.

  10. I've broken more pairs of sunglasses than I can count. It's always the cool ones I like too! I broke my nose and my arm -- probably a couple of toes by now too.

    How about the plate glass top to a coffee table because I was too lazy to walk around it? File that one under, DOH!

    Great list, Morgan!

  11. That's so cool about the friend thing. I still exchange Christmas and birthday cards with a friend of mine from 1st grade too, but I can't count the amount of friends who've come and gone in between.

  12. I know, tara... it was a sad moment too. My first car. I wasn't even 20 yet. Didn't own a car after that until I got married. *rzzz*

    It's nice isn't it, samantha?

  13. Sounds like we had a similiar childhood. I broke everything. I kept thinking I could fly LOL

  14. Oooh you and I would get along fine. We could be the BROKEN gals. I've broken so many things too... including many bones. Ouch. Great T13! Thanks for visiting mine, too!

  15. My family calls the bathroom "Mom's reading room."

  16. I don't break sunglasses, I lose sunglasses. Who knows where they go...just like socks.;)
    Anyway, sounds like you might need to get into full body armor the minute you get out of bed, haha:)
    Great list!

  17. That was a fun list. Happy TT..

  18. I'm with you on the sunglasses. I just can't seem to keep a pair in useable condition.

    Happy TT!

  19. Thanks for visiting my "13 Favourite Romance Novels" list, Morgan!

    I don't think I've ever broken any sunglasses -- but I've rubbed off the surface coating of my old pair. So they're as good as broken, too ...

    Happy TT13 & best wishes from Germany!

  20. I broke a sweat reading about these in sympathy of the pain!!!

    ...and yeah, either stay away from sunglasses or buy 'em by the shipping container. :)

  21. While I've never broken a book, I've certainly gained many paper cuts and bruises trying to prevent one (or more!) from falling. Ouch!

  22. I just don't even bother with sunglasses anymore! I lose them before I have a chance to break them!

    And I'm super guilty of breaking those 'maybe' promises!

  23. I had a Toyota Tercel too! Standards were great...though if we can break up a fight in the back seat, get a toy and dig out the snacks while on the cell phone surely we could do it while shifting into third.

  24. Broken (sun)glasses? Tell mes omething! I nearly drove my mom crazy when I was a child, by either breaking or losing my glasses in a monthly ritual.

    If you ever read this: SORRY MOM!

  25. You've broken book covers? For shame!
