NOT a Meme

I copied this from Ginger Bee, and I must say that this is not a Meme. The idea is not to list what you like or dislike, but what answer best describe you (optional: and why). You can see that I’ve opted to include why I chose each to describe me.

  • If you were a car what car would you be: Volvo Chrysler 300C with a Hemi (family car appearance with a powerful engine)
  • Book: Where the Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein (entertaining and makes you think)
  • Movie: Ever After starring Drew Barrymore (beautiful, but she’s no wilting flower!)
  • Weather: Sunny with a 30% chances of Thunderstorms (I’m happy, but there’s always a chance I’ll get ticked off)
  • Drink: Hot coffee – black (If you need to ‘doctor’ me to suit your taste, you don’t love me)
  • Ice Cream Flavor: Blue Bunny Chocolate Bunny Tracks (you can see the chocolate pieces, but are surprised when you bite one, there’s sweet caramel filling)
  • Song or Genre of Music: Gypsy Kings (adventurous beat in a language you may not understand)
  • Shoe: Red, High-heeled Boots ( noticeable, sexy, can be used as a weapon)
  • Website: My own blog!
  • Food: Meatballs and Gravy (Americans call it spaghetti sauce, but my grandma was Italian. It’s a comfort food and an indulgence)

What are eyebrows for anyway?

As was routine after a good feeding with my newborn daughter, I put her on my shoulder and patted her on the back (read: whacked her repeatedly for several minutes) until she produced a resounding belch. Of course, DH and I cheered her accomplishment. A moment after that, it struck me as strange, so I asked my husband, “At what age do we stop congratulating her on expelling gas?”My fresh-out-of-college Prince Charming replied, “What do you mean?” Seven years later, we have three daughters that laugh hysterically before they announce : ‘Excuse Me’ for a burp, or ‘Pardon Me’ for gas. My seven year old feels it’s her duty to comment on the odiferous qualities of each one. She was once heard to say to her five year old sister, “That was a good one! Do I still have eyebrows?!” Ahh. My girls are actually boys in floral prints. What’s nice is that I can now use the statement I heard my mother say repeatedly when I was young:
My life may be many things, but never boring.

Long ago, and far away…

If you want to see what I looked like as a nine year old, give this a click!


Read: I have all three girls at home with me today and DH works until 4PM. No reinforcements. Have I done this before? Sure, but today they had Cocoa Puffs for breakfast. Why doesn’t the ad say, “Sugar-coated, sugar-fortified, chocolate-flavored balls of sugar!” My girls are already bouncing off the walls, and it’s not even 7:30AM. Did I mention that it’s raining? Since about 2AM. I woke up with the blurred vision that precedes a migraine. Oh boy. Please pray for me. And for my daughters. I’ve posted about Stinker’s speech progress on my other blog.

***UPDATE*** The girls are working on ‘projects’ – lots of markers, glue, scissors are involved. Don’t know exactly what each is creating, but they are happy and being quite pleasant. I look forward to seeing their handiwork later in the day. Stinker is snuggling with me quietly on the couch, between her routine inspections of her sisters’ crafts. We have a movie to watch: ‘Valiant‘.

Men’s Rejection

DH read the list of top rejection statements that women give to men asking for a date. Number One was: “It’s my week to pick up donuts for my Singles with STDs meeting.”

Check it out!

I’ve posted today’s Stinker story on the blog about my three daughters, called ‘Hat Trick’.

My Temperment

You Have a Sanguine Temperament

You are an optimistic person who is easily content.
You enjoy casual, light tasks – never wanting to delve too deep into anything.
A bit fickle, it’s easy for you to change plans or paths when presented with something better.

You enjoy all of the great things life has to offer – food, friends, and fun.
A great talker, you can keep the conversation going for hours.
You are optimistic and sure of your success. If you fail, you don’t worry about it too much.

At your worst, you are vain. You are obsessed with your own attractiveness.
A horrible flirt, you tend to jump into love affairs and relationship drama easily.
You’re very jealous – which just magnifies the craziness around you.

What Temperment Are You?
I am NOT jealous. Okay, I have a husband who goes out of his way to avoid making me jealous.
