Eight is Enough!

Marmabug at My Life as “Momma” and Flea tagged me for a meme. Obviously they are very patient women since I have become very forgetful about all these obligations sitting in my drafts.

Eight Things For Which I Have A Passion For: (in no particular order)
1. Justin
2. my kids
3. my family
4. being a very useful engine…yes, I like to be busy and useful at work, makes the time go quicker
5. reading, though you’d never tell since I barely have time to read anymore
6. blogging, though maybe it should really say “commenting” because I’m much better at that
7. watching TV, sad but true
8. good wine

Eight Things I’d Like to do Before I Die:
1. go to Europe with Justin and stay in the nicest prettiest areas, drinking local wines
2. see my kids get married to wonderful people
3. rock my grandbabies to sleep
4. see my kids graduate college and get good, fulfilling jobs
5. meet Queen Elizabeth…and hopefully Prince William (joking honey!…sorta)
6. breed and raise Boston Terriers
7. learn to play cello
8. move back to either Chicago or Indy

About the Author


This is a blog where I will share my adventures and mundane tasks as a work-out-of-home-mom. I now have 2 kids and my wonderful husband, so the juggling has gotten a little bit more tricky (man-on-man defense). We also have 2 dogs and 3 cats (we used to have 4) so as you can imagine, our household is pretty busy. Since I never feel like I'm being listened to, I figured I'll just start talking at the general Internet community and see what happens.


Tranny Head

Ok – one of your passionate things should have been “reading the tranny’s blog.” You clearly forgot to mention me. *snort*

Also – I love Dogma. LOVE LOVE LOVE Dogma.


II didn’t even think about there needing to be 8 things. You’re right.

Okay – “being a very useful engine” Do you find yourself, throughout the day, saying, “I think I can. I think I can. I think I can”?

I listed kids flicks because I’ve seen them so MANY FREAKIN’ TIMES. And I don’t tend to watch movies over and over otherwise.


You really give away a lot in your “right” book selections 🙂

Burgh Baby

You know what, you really are a good commenter. One of the best, in fact. I, however, have been SLACKING lately. I suck.


There really should be 8 questions. What’s up with that?

Very interesting peek into the woman behind the blog…


I’m a much better commenter, though I’ve been sorta stinking myself . . .

so glad I’m not the only one saying dude to my own kid . . .
