ok fine.

so i got tagged by my friend alissa (thanks sooo much). i've been procrastinating this post for a couple weeks but here it goes:

5 random/wierd things about me:

- my favorite treat is chocolate cake mix - straight out of the box. this is a result of my deprived childhood where the only treat in the house was powdered sugar. i'm not even sure why we had powdered sugar because nothing was ever made using it.
- i am an only child. i hated it growing up but now i love it - my kids will always be the favorite grandkids and justin the favorite son-in-law.
- i love talk radio
- i have to sleep with the blanket tucked under my feet because when i was three or four i swear i saw a ghost in my room that looked like brigham young and he touched my toe that was sticking out from the blanket.
- i am a closet hermit. i do my best to be social but i really really love to be by myself (which now means myself and my kids). a perfect day for me is getting up, cleaning the house, running with my kids in the jogger, taking a nap, shopping on the web (less human contact). no phones, no appointments, no contact with the outside world. is that wierd or what!

i one! this was pure torture.

happy valentines day!

this is my favorite holiday in the entire universe! i really need a sugar cookie right now. you will know i really like you if you get one of these clothespins in the next few days. no, i'm kidding. i love everyone but putting these suckers back together really hurts my fingers so i only made 8. we'll see who the lucky winners are... (hint: bring me sugar cookies and you might get one)

is there hope?

This is me - from the time my kids wake up to the time they go to bed. It doesn't matter where I am in the house or how quiet I am - my kids have this sonar that will lead them to me within seconds. And it's not like they just need to be in the same room either, they need to be touching, holding, rubbing, and generally mauling me.
Actually I kind of like it. At least I have two groupies that will scream my name and throw their clothes at me when I walk into the room.

the little nub is one!

a look back at the past year:
