(Please note James)
I have nothing to say these days. I don't know what it is, but I just don't have it on the blog lately. I must be getting blind in the monotony that is life. Nothing wrong with that because I'm happy and life is good, just makes for a boring blog the last couple months I guess.
So what else is there to do in a time like this but find a tag and tag yourself so you have something, anything to blog about to get things going again.
I found this tag over at visible voice. She's a crack-up. I guess you just have to make jokes to get through when you live where she does! Well, I've been sneaking on her blog off and on for awhile as per Rhonda's advice. Turns out, she sneaks on me here and there too! COOL! If we all started fessing up, think of the webs we could weave!
Anyway, on to the tag. They are all the same, but different. So read on if you want to see my family pics from Rhonda dispersed throughout your in-blog entertainment.
LOOOOOONG. The longest it has ever been ever and I love it. I have the occasional dream that I get a huge chop of a haircut and it's cute, but I'm devastated inside in that dream. So I'm not ready to lose the locks yet. The last time I had a chop was 3 years ago at Christmas, right before Brooke's wedding here. I loved it there and I do sometimes miss short blond hair. But if we are keeping score, I get checked out way more when I have long hair, even in the mini van. (c'mon don't pretend you don't notice when you get checked out) and who doesn't love that once in a while?!
Where is your cell phone?
in Derek's pocket
Good, Great, Grand. I mean where would I start? We live with her, she is a saint (you too dad!)
In the mountains where she belongs! (I make fun of her for how much she goes hiking, mostly cause I'm jealous)
A genuinely good person. If he wasn't my dad and was a guy I knew I would still have the same respect I do for him.
Your Favorite Food:
Seriously, I love all food. I'm not picky. Put something in front of me and I'll most likely eat it. I'm actually trying to remedy that slightly. I don't exactly have that teenage metabolism anymore, dang it. I need boundaries. But I enjoy chocolate and bread in all forms and a good casserole....(please tell me i got a laugh at that)
Your dream from last night:
It wasn't a haircutting dream. I do dream all the time, but I don't remember, I had to share a bed with the sickie James and he is a manic in his sleep too. Kicking me all night.
Your favorite drink:
Derek makes good drinks. I like the margaritas and pina colada's, but lately I want starbucks hot chocolate. (any flavor with will do) There is this dang distance factor in the evening when I'm cold and craving one.
I should probably have some of these.
What room are you in:
Kitchen, James is sitting beside me eating an orange. errrrrrr, go to bed!
What is your hobby:
I should really get some more of these, but I'm content right now. I still like to run and workout. Also, I'm doing piano lessons and I crave to be good at it, but I'm not. That's about it.
What is your fear:
I'm not going there. I hate talking about it enough that I don't want to write about. I said it on here at one point in time and I'm just not up for right now.
Where were you last night:
Something you are not:
I'm not really passionate about anything. Sometimes I wish I was, but that's just not me I've found. I think if I didn't have kids, I would go back to school and either get my degree in nursing or do something interior designish. I would love to be smart enough to work in a real ER. Or to get all the swirlling in my head decorating ideas organized and really find my true style and DO it! But the whole kid thing is workin for me right now.
Just waiting for the bananas to over rippen!
Where did you grow up:
Here. Good ol small town Raymond. Blah boring, but I love it!
The last thing you did:
Swept the kitchen floor
What are you wearing:
Jeans and a black shirt, exciting, I know.
no thank you
the BEST! I have many. Here are a select few having a hearty laugh while the waiter played photographer. Apparently I got a real kick out of it. And how embarrasing that I'm wearing the same shirt as in the fam pics!
Not bad. Derek has a good job. We are healthy and happy. I'm really trying to focus on the little things with my kids these days. Just enjoying them. I don't want to waste time feeling guilty about the things I might not be the best at as a mother or in life. It's not fair to me or my family.
Not a good mood, not a bad. Just here, kinda lame I know.
I wasn't going to do it, but ok, I miss Jacklyn all the time. Sometimes I don't, but mostly I do. Is that pathetic? Well if it is I don't think so.
Please don't hate for this picture Jack, I love out lipstick.
The van is making a weird noise. I still reach for the clutch when I drive it. (the other car is a standard)
Your Favorite Store:
I like stores. I just like going in them, and I'm a SLOW shopper, so I usually go alone or drag the kids to make it even slower and yet less productive at the same time.
Your Favorite Color:
I don't know, Green I guess
When's the last time you laughed:
Oh laughter. It would take too much background and too long to type and then you might not even laugh, so I won't but oh James. If anyone watches SNL I'll tell you the story.
Your best friend:
The one and Only. So hot.
One place you go over and over:
One person who emails you regularly:
I'm not a regular email kinda gal, but I chat to Susie regularly.
Favorite place to eat:
This is where I am weird. I mean I like most foods, which in return means I don't have a definite place I LOVE to eat. I just like going pretty much anywhere that I don't have to cook.
Where do you want to be in six years:
Wow, 6 years. I would be happy being right where I am right now in life. (minus living at the parents, did you have a small heart attack mom?) Things are good, and I can't complain.
TAG You're IT!
I have loads more pics, but I'll spare you. I'm so happy with them!
Hope this was all as exciting for you as it was for me!
