Old School Blogging

Two days in a row????  The world really must be coming to an end!  Is it the sign of a trend?  I don't know about that. I do know that all day Wednesday I was gone, and when I was at home all I wanted to do was sit.  However, if I sit too long I fall asleep.  Does anyone else have this problem?  I digress, let's get on with why we are really here!  I was tagged by Shell, of Things I Can't Say, this time.  I felt really bad about this one, because I didn't even know.  How bad am I?  I really need to get back into the blogging thing.  It's all about working it into the schedule.



What were you doing ten years ago?

Ten years ago, we were living in Fort Belvoir, VA.  Ryan wasn't even born yet.  Rich had just made Chief, and it looked like we were moving to Alaska.  Luckily, that never happened and we stayed in VA until Rich retired in 07.

What are 5 things on your to do list?

1.  Homework...meaning me.
2.  Laundry, but that is a given am I right?
3.  Sweep the kitchen floor
4.  I really should do some housekeeping with my phone.  It keeps telling me there's not enough storage.
5.  Hmmm maybe I will take a nap.  HA!

Name some things you would do if you were a millionaire.

Assuming all my debts have been paid, I would buy my dream car and have my house redecorated by a pro.  I would make sure money was set aside for colleges, retirement, and weddings.  I would donate to the Drama department at the high school simply because I never have been able to.  I would put the other two in some sort of sport or other activity that they wanted.  How did I make my millions?  Did I finally sell my book?  Star in a movie?  Invent the next best thing?  I want to know that money will keep coming in.

Name some places you have lived.

1. Huntington Beach, CA
2.  Novato, CA
3.  Fort Belvoir, VA

Just to name a few.

Name some bad habits you have

I have a real bad habit of telling a story the real long way around.  I get you there, but you just have to go on all the side streets first.

I am very disorganized.

I stay up late...which I mentioned yesterday.

Name those you are tagging for Old School Blogging

Involuntary Smiles

Yes, I am only tagging one person today.  I have been away so long it is literally like starting over.

I Got Tagged....TWICE






I was tagged old school by my bestie, Emmy.  I was tagged, and she had the nerve to call me a PUNK!! She called me a punk simply because I haven't blogged for a few days.  All right, a few MONTHS!  I really do miss this community of fabulous women, and in some cases men, I have met.  So I am glad she tagged me and called me a PUNK!  

The directions are as follows:



  • Display the award logo on your blog: Check!
  • Link back to the person(s) who nominated you:
  • Nominate 15 bloggers for this award: yea I am doing 7
  • State 7 things about yourself.
  • Notify those bloggers of the nomination by linking to one of their specific posts so that they get notified by pingback. (huh?)  I haven't learned that trick!  I bet it's cool though!






  • 1.  I hate confrontation, but if I am pushed to my limit I will go bat crap crazy.

    2.   I have a new addiction to Plants vs. Zombies

    3.  I also have a guilty pleasure of watching The Golden Girls.  Not sure who my favorite one is.  They are great in their own right.

    4.  I am not sure I can come up with 7...I am boring.

    5.  I am the youngest of three children, my husband is the oldest of three children and together we have three children.  

    6.   I stay up late every night even though I know I should go to bed early.  

    7.   I want a pixie haircut...you know...think Emma Watson but I am not gutsy enough plus I just don't believe I could pull it off.


    Now it's time for me to tag people....it's been a long time...here goes....
    Wow...ummm....it's a been a while and I have two tags...so I am doing 3 here....

    3.  Nicole

    Does this mean I am back?  I want to be.  I just need to manage my time better!  I miss this place. Now believe it or not...I will be back tomorrow.  I did say I got tagged twice!!!  Come back tomorrow to see who else tagged me!
