another week has gone by and I have only blogged one time. I hang my head in bloggy shame and as that you forgive me. Again.
hang on--gotta take care of (read: clean up after) the diva.....
Thank you. Currently girlie and I are outside enjoying this lovely Indian summer weather and cursing the coming winter. Ok. Maybe not the whole cursingthecomingwinter thing, but nonetheless.
So. Here's what has happened since last we met:
Thursday: I really, really wished that it was Friday.
Friday: I was really, really glad it was Friday.
Saturday: Went to Annapolis with my good friend Freddie. Ate fro-yo at Menchie's. Enjoyed the lovely weather. Bought some big-girl make-up.
Sunday: Discovered DuPont Circle. aaaannnnndddd a new yarn store. And because I am a yarn ho, bought some more yarn. Hey--the first step is admitting your addiction, right? Cursed the Cowboys because they SUCK OUT LOUD ALL DAY LONG this season. Ok. Again with the whole...
hang on. gotta find the diva. think she is flirting with the boyfriend. her boyfriend, not mine. you know, because i don't have one.
no cursing thing because I really don't. Usually.
Monday: Paid a visit to Manworld, aka Lowe's (or Home Depot) if you prefer. The area in front of my house (under the lovely bay windows of my kitchen) is a mosquito breeding area. The water does not drain off well so I needed to get some rocks to help with the process. Grossly underestimated the number of bags of rocks I needed and will have to go back and get some more this weekend. Also bought large bag of mulch, some edging brick thingies, and a lovely purple mum. Came home and worked in the yard for a little over an hour. See:
There. Now you are all caught up to speed and I get on with more important things like these questions that I need to answer because I was tagged by Erin. I can't even begin to tell you how much of a big-girl blogger being tagged makes me feel. (Holy awkward sentence, Batman!)
Here are my 8 questions and there (mostly) truthful answers:
1. What has been the most surprising aspect of motherhood in your experience? If you're not a mom, what is it like to go to the bathroom in privacy?
Going potty in private is a wonderful experience that I highly recommend. Wait. Does it count if the dog sits outside the bathroom and watches?
2. How often do you shave your legs in the winter?
Honestly, I can't stand having hairy legs. I shave 2-3x a week regardless of the season.
3. What's your favorite thing to do online? If shopping, what site?
Obviously my favorite thing to do is blog because I am so faithful at it. Ahem. I like Facebook and reading other people's blogs. I don't do a huge amount of shopping online but when I do I generally hit Amazon first.
4. If you already possessed the necessary education and experience level what would you choose for your dream job?
I would absolutely love to open a bakery/coffee/craft shop with my BFF.
5. Share a "last-minute" dinner recipe. No pancake balls, please.
I'm single, so naturally that means that I am a gourmet cook. Or not. Hmmmmm....I am a big fan of soup or breakfast at night if I can't think of anything else to make for dinner or if I didn't plan ahead of time. Which is most of the time...However, now that I know about pancake balls.....
6. Do you speed or drive the speed limit?
Depends on who's behind me. ;)
7. If you could live anywhere, where would you choose?
Texas. Or you know, somewhere with a beach and cute, available, single men.
8. What kind of new vacuum should I buy?
One that sucks. I have a Dirt Devil. On the rare occasions that it finds it's way out of it's home in the spare room closet, it works wonderfully. It sucks.
Now I am supposed to tag 8 people and have them answer my very own made-up 8 questions. The problem is I don't know 8 people to tag. So instead I will post 8 questions in the hope that someone (or more than one someone) will feel a burning desire to answer the questions in my comments:
1. What is your favorite go-to dessert? Posting the actual recipe gets you bonus points.
4. Who was your favorite teacher in grade school? Why?
5. What do you think your best friend would say is your best quality?
6. Law & Order or CSI:? Or do you care?
