32 Flavors – Part II

Standard

 

You’re still here! I knew that cliff-hanger would get you. It wasn’t a cliff-hanger. Thanks for coming back for more ME. I promise, it’s almost over.

Hm. How do you suppose I make the number lister start at 17? Let’s just pretend, mkay?

  1. The comments I hear most when out with my three children are: “THREE girls??” and “Poor daddy (with the optional tag of ‘I’ll bet he wanted a boy’ or ‘boy, is he outnumbered!)” and “Where’s the red hair?” and “You’ve sure got your hands full!”/”You must be busy!”
  2. My favorite book to read to my babies is Guess How Much I Love You.  I guarantee by the time I get to the end I have a lump in my throat when I read the line “I love you to the moon and back.”
  3. I love to sing. A lot. At home, in the car, in front of people – I don’t really care.
  4. I feel like Pinterest is the best thing that’s happened to the internet since the internet. It has my heart.
  5. In high school I had over 75 pairs of shoes. A couple of guys in my Physics class started to call me Shoes. Which I hated with a white hot fury. Had they chosen “Imelda” or something with some creativity, I don’t think I would have cared a bit.
  6. Yes. I read the Twilight books. And I may or may not be reading them again in preparation for Breaking Dawn Part I. What of it?
  7. I have always wanted to live in a river town.
  8. My favorite ice cream topping at home is hot cocoa powder.
  9. When I was in 5th grade we had to draw a picture of our favorite place, and I drew a picture of a mall. Southdale, in Edina, MN to be exact.
  10. I am the kind of geek who went to French camp. Twice. Almost three times (darn you, Mononucleosis!!). And I loved it.
  11. When I went to French camp, Chelsea Clinton had just finished camp at the German camp down the road that weekend.
  12. I knew the Husband (Captain America? Oh I don’t know. I DON’T KNOW.) had the engagement ring before he proposed. I went through several dates being So Sure This Was IT! When he did propose, I had no clue. He managed to completely surprise me.
  13. I am also the kind of geek who really loves to visit historical places.
  14. I am currently reading the Bible in 90 days. Roughly. I’ve never read the entire thing, and felt like I wanted to do it all in order and in less than a year (too easy to quit). The Old Testament was rough for me. But I have to say, I have a much better appreciation for the need for Jesus. Some crazy, crazy things went down in the Old Testament.
  15. Since my family owned a newspaper, I have been a Mac girl my whole life. I have never owned a PC.
  16. I don’t camp. Roughing it is a Super 8. But I sort of wish I camped so our girls would grow up with some camping memories. But again, that would require camping.

There you have it – 32 random things about me (since I’ve been helping Ella with homework I’m reasonably sure 16+16 is 32 – but now she’s into scalene triangles and I think that’s where she’ll lose me). It’s been therapeutic just to write again, and I’m looking forward to more of it. So much so, I’d even take requests.

  1. You started your blog on a weekend? Bygones. I enjoyed learning 2 new things about you. I will not tell you which two they were.

  2. Stumbled upon your blog at mommywhateverlogues. So glad you are going to continue to write. I love the 32 things about you. Very entertaining, and aside for your dislike of Diet Pepsi, we have much in common!! lol. I’ll come back and read more!

  3. I LOVE the new blog! Though, I have to say, The Mommylogues was my FAVORITE blog name ever. Copywrite infringement – poo. Please continue to call him Captain America. I have always loved that. I can’t get through Guess How Much I Love You without SOBBING. And yes, I too cry when children sing. I just made pumpkin bread (tracked down some of that elusive pumpkin). Just thought I’d make you jealous. Happy, happy that you’re back to blogging again.
