No Wonder I Never Get Anything Done

I'm having a very busy Monday. I'm conducting my own little experiment and it's taking a lot of my time to collect all the data. There are charts and graphs involved. It's very scientific, I assure you. What am I studying, you ask?

The number of times in a day I go pee.



I've had the feeling that I pee more frequently then most people for quite some time and I finally decided to take matters into my own hands (don't worry, I'm a washer.) After doing some general research on my friends (who think I'm crazy, again, but what else is new?) I discovered that I do in fact make more trips to the loo than your average bear.

The friends I surveyed revealed that they generally peed about 5-7 times in a day. A DAY. I was floored, as I have usually gone to the bathroom that many times by 10 am. I know. It's so annoying.


I know there are things that I do that contribute to the urgency of my bowels but I can't help it. Yes, I do drink a ton of water each and every day. And yes, I do enjoy an herbal green tea lemonade every morning with breakfast, which is a known diuretic. But still, STILL. I need some rest. And to buy stock in Charmin.


I think I've narrowed down my pee frequency to three things, but it's a little too late to do anything about it, and while they're cute, I feel like I spend more time in the john than I do anywhere else.


Reason #1: Spencer

Reason #2: Hannah

Reason #3: Sienna


Here it is, 2:48 pm and I have already visited the porcelain throne 12 times today. It's ridiculous and annoying and time consuming and I'm sick, sick, sick of it. Which only means one thing....time to visit everyone's favorite doc, Dr. Turner!

Stay tuned for the hilarity that will ensue....

Yeah, I've already told you this, but you pee more than ANYONE I've ever known!

Although I want you to get your urinary issues under control, I really hope that you are able to go see Dr. T a handful of times, because the experience really does make for excellent blog posts! :)

And, oh my goodness! Are YOU really quoting J.K.R.? I'm shocked beyond description.

Marilyn said...

I am definitely looking forward to those posts, because your former Dr. T posts were HILARIOUS!

Nic said...

YAY for Dr. Turner's return! So sorry about your close relationship with Charmin. I pee twice maybe three times max a day - I feel for you!

Sarah said...

I only have that problem when I'm pregnant or drink lots of pop. Hope you get some answeres soon.

Lindsay said...

I've been going to the bathroom tons lately...granted I'm 7 MONTHS PREGNANT. I'm curious to see what the final total is for a 24 hour period. Is it 24? Like 1 time an hour?

Melissa said...

Yikes! Have you ever thought that maybe YOU are the normal one and the rest of us are the ones with the problem?? Good luck at the doctors!

Kelly said...

Oh, how that must suck for you. Hopefully Doc Turner will have the answer... I think buying stock in Charmin would be a wise investment.

Heather said...

Tell Turner hi... I can't wait for the stand up routine to begin.

Michele said...

Are you peeing a lot every time or just a tinkle? 12 times a day is a lot! If you have a full ginormous glass of water every hour and pee after that, then that is probably normal. How many times do you pee at night? I'll put you in bed with me when you come over so you can be close to the potty....Yeah for bladder suspension surgery!!! Mass love

Alicia said...

Just do what I do: Don't drink at all. I pee three times a day, without fail.

Brooklet said...

WOw, that a lot of potty trips- thats more than when I am pregnant!
