"You look tired."

If one more person tells me I look tired, I'm gonna punch him in the face.

How am I supposed to respond to that? "Thanks?" "Yes, I am?" "Oh, really -- how could you tell?"

I mean, seriously -- what does such a statement accomplish? Unless you are a very, very close friend or family member, you are not allowed to say such a thing to someone. It's rude.

Thing I'm thankful for: Cousins! Especially Brant and Jordann at this moment.

Ugh yes. Drives me crazy. This happened to me a few weeks ago when Elizabeth was just a few weeks old. I was well rested and wearing a cute outfit and makeup. Multiple people had told me how great I looked and that they couldn't believe I had a new baby. But then there I was in the mother's lounge with my baby and a girl in my ward walks in and immediately exclaims, "wow! You look EXHAUSTED!" What the heck?! Why would you ever think that's okay to say to someone?! Next time I'm gonna be all "you too... Have your kids been waking up a lot at night?" Seriously people, get with it.

You know I don't actually mind being told I look tired. I am usually like, "You're right! I _am_ tired!" And if it's my boss I should very much like to say, "You should let me go home and take a nap!"
