I'm STILL alive...

I'm still here... just busy.  How do you ask...?  Lots of kids, dogs that are (still) pregnant, and it's summer vacation.  I'll be back in a few days...

20 things about ME... day 10

So, my all time, FAVORITE FOOD is.... Fettuccine Alfredo. And not just any Fettuccine Alfredo... no, no, no my friend! It has to be The Olive Garden's Fettuccine Alfredo. It is DIVINE! I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! I go there, about, 2 or 3 times (on my birthday, on my Anniversary, and maybe on 1 date night) a year. And it is ALL I EVER GET! I have tried other things, but I am always disappointed with what I order. I am NEVER disappointed when I order THAT! Y-U-M-M-Y! And right now, I'm am wishing that I had the money to go and get some... maybe next month. I can't hardly wait! That's it for now...

20 things about ME... day 9

We are now on Day 9... so here goes. Some weird facts about me are that I love Mayo on corn on the cob... I slather it on really thick. It makes my husband gag and shudder when I do this. I also like a fried egg sandwich's (and the yolk has to be broken when it is cooked) with mayo and grape jelly on the bread... this is another thing that makes my husband shudder and my 10 year old son likes it too! (hehe) Again, I could also eat a whole box of KRAFT Mac and Cheese, not a very good thing to do, so I don't do it (very often, anyways)... but I could.
I know I eat other stuff that is weird, but I can't think of anything right now... maybe I'll think of something later...

20 things about ME... day 8

So, here we are on day 8... and what time is it? 11:44 p.m... yeah, that's another problem I have... I procrastinate like you wouldn't believe. I seem to wait until the very last minute to do things. And it (or rather 'I') wasn't always like this, either. It just happened over time... stuff happens, ya know? I put off doing a craft project... or 2, or 3, or 20. Yeah, you should see my craft box. Actually I think I have 2 or 3 of them floating around the house somewhere. All with bits of things in them, wood things mostly... but who has the TIME to finish all of them?! Not ME!! I tell ya, having 5 kids takes a lot of time and throw in some pets (1 bird, 2 {freaking} bunnies, and 3 dogs), a house and all of the cleaning (which I do, just not a lot of the time), dishes and laundry... sheesh! No wonder I don't have a lot of time. Add in 2 different schools to get 3 kids to, at different times, and I'm running around all morning. Then, when I pick them up, it's homework, homework, and even more homework! AARRGGHHH! I'd like a weekend (heck, even a Saturday) that I don't have to take care of anyone and just have a little craft time by myself. I actually get some time for myself, but I don't use it very often, 'cause I'm doing things for the 'other people' in the family, and I feel guilty if I have time for me, and not doing other things for the family... did ya get that or did that sound really, really odd? Yeah, I feel guilty for not being the best or the most... whatever. It's one of my faults. I don't know where it came from.. but I'm stuck with it. It's what I do and just who I am...

20 things about ME... day 7

Day #7... I have a confession... I am... a total... Pack-Rat. I save (literally) save everything. And it really pains me to throw stuff away. I have had bills in my file cabinet that were from 2002! (They have been {recently} dispatched by my husband) WHY?!... I don't know! You should really see my craft table... it has PILES OF PAPERS on it. My husband can attest to that! He HATES it! And when he try's to "fix it" or "move something", I feel like I'm going to have a 'conniption fit'. I really hate it when he moves something... because that means "I" can't find it! I know where everything is on the table, but when he gets near it... I start to hyperventilate (o.k., not really, but it feels like it sometimes). As I type this, I am starting to get 'antsy' just thinking about it. Yikes! I really should do something about it... but I'll leave that for another day.

20 things about ME... day 6

Something else to know about me is that I wear 5 clips in my hair. Why? Because I have 5 kids, of course! Doesn't everyone? And the clips that I wear... well, they reflect my children. Oh, and I also color-coordinate my kids too (it just saves on them fighting over something and my sanity). :)
Their favorite colors are as follows... The oldest (a girl) is red, the next (oldest) one in line (a boy) is blue, the middlest (another girl) is green, the next one (a boy) is yellow, and the youngest (a girl) is purple. Apparently I (or as my husband says) 'brainwashed' them into thinking that those were their favorite colors... well, I don't think so. That's just the color that looked best on them when they were baby's. And I just followed suit with keeping up the color scheme as they grew older. Well, that's it for now...

20 things about ME... day 5

Things to know about me day #5... As a kid, I remember my dad torturing me and giving me grilled onions to eat... I did NOT like them... but I did like onion rings. Go figure! So, now as an adult, I LOVE grilled onions and ONLY onion rings from Jack in the Box (but only as long as they are fresh). Why do you ask? Because they make them (at least most of the time) FRESH from the fryer. They are the most delicious when hot!!
Burger Kings has these little round rings and they don't taste all that great, Carl's Jr. makes them, but I don't care for those either... and McDonald's just doesn't even get into the game. So there you have it... torture your kids NOW with different tastes so that when they grow-up they can do the same thing to their own kids :)
