Virtual TAG Isn't Nearly As Fun.
Tuesday, July 29, 2008

You don't even get to hit anybody, for crying out loud! Rather, you're forced to reveal information about yourself that people otherwise wouldn't know. What fun is that?!?! And do you really even care? Well, I tried to keep it interesting for you, anyway. I have Rachel to thank for the tag. Feel free to toilet paper her house.

3 JOYS (outside of the obvious family/friends):

Running: Sometimes I think I'm in better shape now than I was before kids, especially after pushing 30lbs of stroller lugging 55lbs of child. I certainly get some type of unexplainable high from it (from running...not pushing the 85lbs), and can totally tell a difference in my mood if I go a few days without it.
Getting Away With Hiding Vegetables In Food: There's nothing more satisfying than hearing your kids "ooh" and "ahh" over mashed potatoes loaded with broccoli, cauliflower, and cheese. I take every opportunity to slip them into a meal, whether it's scrambled eggs, pancakes, mac n cheese, or muffins. I have frozen cubes of cauliflower and sweet potatoes on hand at all times. It's awesome. Mom's are the best at trickery!!!
Online Shopping: I'm not really sure there is another girl on earth that despises shopping as much as I do--the crowds, rummaging through sale racks, kids kicking and screaming as they try to escape from the stroller. That's just not for me, folks. It's totally worth it for me to pay a few extra dollars in shipping than to make a dreaded trip to the mall. And the options?!?!?! I can't tell you how many times I've gone into a store (to save that beloved few bucks in shipping) only to hear, "I'm sorry...we don't carry that in the store." Well, hells bells...that was a waste of time! I'm so much more content taking my time to search through an online catalog while the kids are napping than to rush through a mall, sweat pouring from my brow, only to walk away with nothing.

3 FEARS (Since I've started this blog, I've realized that I have a few too many irrational fears in which I need to work to resolve. I won't bore you with them yet again):

$10/gal gas: Not kidding. I'm sure it will be in our future soon enough. Those smart cars are looking more and more attractive by the day.

Hmm...can you picture a family of four in this vehicle? Perhaps the car seats attach to the roof? There is a strange and somewhat demented part of me that would be absolutely fine with that!
Losing a child: I've known mothers who've lost children and I pray on a daily basis that I'm never forced to endure such pain.
Mascots/Masks/Costumes: It's not really a fear, but I just get really creeped out by people in costume. Does this mean a Disney World family vacation is out of the question? I think it has more to do with not being able to see a person's eyes. Wearing sunglasses can kind of be lumped into this category as well. I certainly understand why people wear them, but I don't particularly like having a conversation with someone when I can't see their eyes. It's for that very reason I never wear them myself. I suppose I would rather have the sun just burn holes in eyes!


To have only one chin again: Hey...I started (after pregnancy) with three and am now down to one and a half, so I'm almost there! YIPPEE!
To run a half marathon: By this time next year, I hope to have another half marathon under my belt. If I really wanted to, I think I could do one this summer. But I don't. :-) Half marathons are great because they do require a great deal of training, but they don't kill your joints like a full marathon...and the recovery time is much shorter. I suppose I should start looking at a calendar and get my booty in gear!
To learn how to quilt: No...I'm not 85 years old. However, by the time I actually get around to learning how to do it, I just might be! I have a couple of projects in mind that I'd like to undertake someday. There isn't a big rush. I just need to be able to devote enough time to become a master quilter before I get started on them. Yeah...we're probably looking at somewhere around 85!


Eye Cream: Since I've turned 30 (only a couple of weeks ago), I've purchased three different brands of eye cream. I've diligently applied them to my almost-visible (okay...moderately visible) "laugh lines" every morning and night. I'm really not afraid of getting older, but there's certainly nothing wrong with a little intervention. And an ounce of prevention goes a long way!
Drinking Water: I have a 32-ounce jug of water that goes everywhere with me. Well not everywhere...I have received a few strange looks from people when I've been out in public. But it's at least in my car or in my house at all times. Aside from my morning coffee and occasional glass of wine in the evening, it's all I drink. I seriously can't get enough of it. You could hook me up to an IV and have water pouring through my veins, and I'm willing to bet that I'd still be thirsty for the real thing. At least it's a healthy obsession. It could be worse, I suppose.
Flossing: I have a dentist appointment tomorrow.

I tag: no one. I don't handle rejection well.

I always wondered why you didn't wear sunglasses! I guess I'll have to try to go without sunglasses next time we venture outside together. Of course, if I suffer from any eye damage caused by the sun, I'll be blaming you! haha!

You did it - yay!!! Don't worry, I won't call you out again. :)

I want to hear more about sneaking veggies into meals. Spencer is a pretty good vegetable eater, but his dad is another story. I'm with you on the water and, unfortunately, the extra chins.... I hope these kids realize what we sacrifice for them!!

My Wine Personality:
For the most part I’m a chardonnay, as I consider myself to exhibit a somewhat sunny and mellow disposition (most of the time), but because I find a tremendous amount of joy out of showering my two kids with hugs and kisses, I also possess the subtle sweetness often found in a riesling. But don’t be fooled. I love a great outdoor adventure and am willing to try anything once. This occasional display of boldness is thought to match that of a cabernet, whereas my appreciation for nature suggests that I have an earthy component to my personality—very characteristic of a merlot.
