Pinch-hitting: Uncomfortable truths by Katie Free

Today's pinch-hitter is my friend Katie, who is a loyal blog reader and also a real-life friend. I met Katie through our friend Melanie years ago. (That's Mel on the left and Katie on the right in the picture below.) Katie is a mom of three and was kind enough to agree to share some of her own Uncomfortable Truths with all of us today. (Hers are NOT BAD. Not anywhere near as bad as my own that I regularly post. You guys don't dig deep enough, is all I have to say.)

1. I have to drink a minimum of 64 ounces of water every day. I can tell you my water-consumed status at any point during the day. If I'm falling short of my quota at the end of the day, you can find me in the kitchen chugging water until I reach 64 ounces. And then you will find me in the bathroom for the rest of the night.

2. I loathe the smell of commercial hand soap. I carry hand sanitizer in my purse for this reason. However, if I am in a public restroom with another random person, I always use the hand soap to make sure that person knows that I did wash my hands. Otherwise, I am just sure that random person would identify me by my shoes as the person spreading strep and stomach virus to the entire world. I use hand sanitizer afterwards to get rid of the soap smell.

3. My husband had "the surgery" after our third child was born three years ago. According to his urologist, it was successful. I still worry every single month that I am pregnant. I even have a few tests on standby just in case.

4. I am a new coffee drinker. I have no idea how to order coffee at Starbucks, so I avoid it like the plague. There should be a seminar on this.

5. If my husband is out of town, I spend an obscene amount of time thinking of worst-case scenarios in which I must evacuate with the children. I leave lights on all over the house, the TV on, and keep my phone, shoes, flashlight, purse and keys by the bed. When my husband is home, I don't worry about any of this.
