I've been tagged . . .

Okay, so the long weekend of fun is over and I'm sitting here in my SERIOUSLY hot house, listening to the AC guy tinker with our compressor. While I'm tempted to feel deep compassion for this poor man in the heat, it's tempered by the fact that this is the THIRD repair call we've placed in less than three weeks. Thank goodness the Johnsons are so laid back and easy going. We spent about 10 hours pool-side on Saturday, ate all our meals there and let the kids swim till well after dark to cool everyone down. They left early Sunday a.m. in their nicely air-conditioned van and we hung out pool-side again till bed time. HUGE thanks to my sis and fam for letting us crash with them over night to stay cool.

So, while I'm waiting on the AC guy to decide if this call is when they take my firstborn son as payment for parts they don't have in stock and repairs they can't make till said parts arrive (I know, I'm such a skeptic! Heat has addled my brain.), I figured I'd respond to my tag. Thanks Krazy Klingers, and oH mY wORD! for including me in the fun :)

8 Random Things About Me
  1. I think I want to write a children's book someday. I have a main character in my head, and some themes and ideas that I jotted down once. Somewhere.
  2. I've been a Weight Watcher for 3 years now. I'm only half way to my goal - still. . .
  3. I seriously hate loose teeth, newly lost teeth, and the gross socket left behind. NASTY!
  4. My favorite wild animal is the polar bear. I have a pic of one on the screen saver of my phone.
  5. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE being a stay-at-home mommy. In case I haven't said it lately, THANK YOU, Boss Man, for working so hard to allow me to be home! LOVE YOU, BABE!
  6. My kitty's name is Maggie, because when I got her I was unsure if I'd ever have a daughter and I just "needed" to use the name.
  7. I got my first real teddy bear when I was a senior in high school. I'm still friends with the boy who gave it to me.
  8. In addition to my coffee addiction (referenced here), I have very little self-control when faced with chocolate and peanut butter paired up. In fact, I rarely even buy my favorite ice cream, I can't handle the awesome responsibility of properly parenting my children and modeling the act of sharing it with my kids. I can't.
So, now I'm tagging my gal Jess over at The Asbury Trio! to join the fun. And Jess, get your sisters and friends in on the good times!

I enjoyed reading your 8 things. I think that it is hysterical that you do not like the whole loose tooth thing...considering how many times that you will be going through that with your kids! :)

I think that you will do an excellent job with book writing and keep it up with the weight watchers! When I am through this pregnancy, I am really determined to loose all of the weight that I gain - last time, I did not lose 10 of the pounds that I gained before I got prego again, and that cannot happen again!!!

The ice cream thing made me laugh - you are such a great example to your kids!

I can't control myself when it comes to chocolate or peanut butter. Then when you put the two together, OH MY GOODNESS! In my book, they should have their own food group.

I heard that the brand "Blue Bunny" makes an awesome chocolate/peanut butter ice cream. I don't know what it is called, but I am going to check it out.

Sorry, I know this doesn't help the whole weight watchers thing.
