Eight Things and a Whole Lot of Taggin'

Alpha Dogma tagged me with this 8 things meme. Eight things about me. Facts or habits. Hmmm...that's a bit vague for me, but I will give it my best shot. And, being the rule follower that I am (unlike AD), I will post the rules for you now.
  1. Each player lists 8 facts or habits about themselves.

  2. The rules of the game are posted at the beginning before the list of 8.

  3. At the end of the post, the person tags 8 people, then going to comment on their blog, letting them know they've been tagged.
Eight facts or habits (habits?) about myself:
  1. I was a four sport athlete in high school (volleyball, basketball, track, softball). I'm now a chubby-sometimes-to-the-gym mom who wishes she still worked out three hours a day (NOT!). Okay, who still wishes she looks like she did when she worked out three hours a day.

  2. I make great pie. Good enough, that perhaps I could even entice AD, who claims to not like pie.

  3. I like lists. I am enjoying this one right now. I make lists when we go somewhere. Lists for groceries, meal plans, goals, to do lists, you name it. I enjoy them.

  4. My one year old is crying right now, from the TV room (gated in). I've gated him in so that the dog can eat without the one year old's "help". I have a laptop with wireless, but I sit up here on my desktop because I also don't want his "help".

  5. My husband sleeps in EVERY weekend. I know that's not about me, but the fact that he sleeps in means that I get up with the kids 7 days a week. When I point that out and suggest a trade every now and then, he smiles. But does not say yes. We have traded a total of 5 times in 4 years. That's 5 mornings out of 1460.

  6. I drive a white mini van. I didn't fight it. I like driving my white mini van. We call it Vanna White.

  7. I make a whole pot of coffee every morning and drink one cup. Some mornings two, if the first cup has gotten cold before I finished it.

  8. I don't mow the lawn. Ever.
Okay. Now the tagging. Problem being that I believe Beck tagged almost every blog I read. I will stretch here, quickly too because now the one year old is chucking stuff over the gate. He's not a happy camper.
  1. Michelle at Big Blueberry Eyes

  2. Jacque at Jacque's Place

  3. Nikki at Random Things

  4. Stacey at Fit for Florida

  5. Mimi on the Breach

  6. Swistle

  7. Brady's Mom at Brady's Bunch

  8. Julie at Busy Kids
So this was a pretty easy exercise until the tagging bit. Eight didn't seem like much until then. Now on to tagging people at their blogs. Whew! I think I'll have that second cup of coffee now! The one year old is now happily eating cereal in the high chair (in the SAME room as me, very important) and sipping his rice milk. Bee says, "Tag you're it! Ha, ha!"

Your conformity bolsters my faux-feeling of rebellion. Thank you.

What is this 'suggest' you speak of? I know not 'suggest' I know only 'threaten', 'demand', 'cajole.'

Please send me pie - I'm willing to be converted to pie-lover. Also send on any extra cups of coffee going to waste at your place.

We refer to our red minivan as our "Red Rocket" after Little Einsteins, but lately Papoosie Girl likes to call her Ruby instead.

I love lists too.

I always am the one to sleep in on weekends. Sorry.

My list is ready. I think I will save it for Monday though.

Yes - AD, I can send you 6-8 cups of coffee per day. Right now the drain enjoys the tastiness. I make all sorts of pie, you'll have to specify a flavor.

By sleep in, I mean about 9:00. Hubs gets to sleep until about 9. I'm up anywhere from 5:30-7:30 with the kiddos. So it's not crazy sleeping in. But it's still not fair!

Michelle said...

I don't think it's fair that he doesn't trade off sleeping in with you! You deserve a morning to sleep in too :)

Great list! I love what you call your van :)

and nice pic of Brenna too! LOL

I, like AD, have no idea what this "suggest" word means. Note to self: Look it up!

Although my husband does the same thing, I find that when he DOES wake up, he can tell by the look on my face that all is NOT well and usually takes over the kids (for a short, short, SHORT while) so that I can have 5 minutes (tops) of sane time.

I make him sound like such a horrible person, which is not the case. I just wish things were a little more 50/50 around here. Oh well such is life.....
