An Estrogen Thing

November 18, 2009

I think most, if not all of you can relate to this one.  You know how as soon as you turn on the vacuum cleaner or the hair dryer, you hear the doorbell ringing or the phone ringing?  Now 9 times of out 10 there is nobody at the door or calling you, it’s just your brain playing cruel tricks on you.

Well I used to just chalk it up to a “mom-thing.”  We are so used to multi-tasking that I guess we imagine these noises knowing that there is no way that we can really dry our hair or vacuum un-interrupted, right?

Well tonight as I was vacuuming the playroom carpet for the 8 time in the last three days, the Big One started screaming, “I hear the doorbell!  I hear the doorbell!!  Mommy!!! The doorbell!!!!”

I was fairly confident the doorbell didn’t ring.  And since I rarely answer the door, I really didn’t care.  But it got me thinking.  It must not be a “mom-thing” rather an estrogen thing that makes up hear things.

And just in case you are wondering, OxiClean seems to be the one thing to finally get the doggie diarrhea stain off the playroom carpet.

    OxyClean rocks – it got all the blood out of my & Madi’s clothes after the incident with the cat the other day… even after it sat on them for over 24 hours. I washed them once regular & it didn’t come out, so I washed again w/OxyClean on a soak cycle and it all came out! Love that stuff!

    I’ve had that ringing when drying my hair and vacuuming. Have turned them off several times also. Always wondered why when no one calls when they aren’t on, why would they pick that time to call.LOL
    Guess I better get my hands on some Oxyclean!
