Sanity or Patience: choose one.

Do you ever have one of those moments where you think, "HA! I am sane!" Then you step in dog poo with your bare feet and remember it was your idea to get the puppy...?

More than you care to know about me

First of all, before I get all into myself (like normal) I want to send a HUGE Happy Birthday out to my brother, affectionately referred to as Oscar in my posts. I won't say his age, but that's only because I don't remember. Which is because I'm forgetting my own age. I'm sure he's older than me by now...
** I am not even trying to fix the weird thing blogger did to my numbers below**
I've been awarded this cute bling by A Cheap Chick. She has an amazing knack for finding free stuff, so visit her to find out what's up for grabs right now in cyber land. Thanks, A Cheap Chick!
(I can't get the award photo to come up, but I'm not making it up, I promise.)

The rules of "Cute's Blogger Award" are to list 10 things about yourself, so in an effort to not bore you all to pieces with bits of me, I'm going to mash this together with...

And EIGHT tag from Funny in my mind. Read all about the escapades she endures as a restaurant owner, mother and wife at In My Mind It's Always Funny. Here are some things (feel free to skim):


8 Things I'm looking forward to:



  1. Seeing the beach again... any beach.


  2. Visiting Oscar again, totally not just for the pizza.


  3. Being finished with my yoga class. I like it, but there are tests. I don't care for tests.


  4. Completing an actual story. As in I don't have to rewrite it ever again.


  5. Tomorrow morning, just like every morning, I get to wake up looking into grass-green eyes and hear, "Is it morning, Mommy?"


  6. Being a famous movie star. That's right, I said it. It's from my list of "to-do's" when I was 13. I should have 4 academy awards by now, too.


  7. Watching the giant sunflowers grow with Monsoon... the ones we planted last week.


  8. A Derby party at my grandma's this weekend. It should be fun.

8 Things I wish I could do:




  1. A real push-up.


  2. Give Monsoon a sibling.


  3. Give tons of money to my favorite charities.


  4. Move south... and take my family.


  5. Take great photos.


  6. Run a marathon.


  7. Walk up stairs without hearing firecracker sounds coming from my knees.


  8. Get a boob-lift.

8 Shows I watch (alternately titled: 8 things I Tivo and forget about):




  1. Housewives


  2. New Adventures of Old Christine.


  3. Grey's


  4. WEEDS (well, back when we had cable)


  5. Big Bang Theory


  6. How I Met Your Mother


  7. Ugly Betty


  8. Two and a Half Men

And a SUPER award from Jen at Following the Footsteps, a blog designing, Nascar watching, Flip-flop gaming blogger who actually titled one post "Hodgepodge." I love that word. Thanks Jen! Miss Environment, or Carrie as you may know her from Life In the Carpool Lane lavished me with a fabulous Earth Friendly award. Visit Carrie for TONS of ideas (many even from her readers) for being green AND to grab this button for your blog.

Funny in my mind said...

How funny that you combined 2 tags! Thanks for playing.
You can borrow all 3 seasons of Weeds from me, we don't have cable in this house so I bought them to see season 3.
I agree with the beach, most of your other shows, and the creaky knees!

You got lots of lovin' this week! And tests in Yoga class? Way to be unstressful, yoga class. That's gotta be, like, a paradox of some sort.
