It’s raining. Again.

19 May

I still have this cold. It’s dug in like termites I swear. I sound like an old lady who smokes filterless camel’s. Although I would welcome a productive feeling smoker’s cough right about now.

It feels like it’s been raining forever. I know it hasn’t, but when you’re stuck at home with small children feeling like hell and needing to do some work, everyone watches too much TV, and I end up feeling like mother of the year. What did mother’s do without TV? Cause today, it’s my BESTEST friend.

I have nothing to talk about today, so it seems like the perfect time to do a hated meme as tagged by Oh the Joys.

What do I love about myself? (hahahaha someone has a sick sense of humor this week.)

  1. I make pretty kids.
  2. my ability to navigate. I AM the map queen. Unless my FIL is driving. Which is a problem unto itself.
  3. I get everything I want. Eventually. It’s kinda cool actually.
  4. I can touch my nose with my tongue.
  5. I can make really REALLY good bread. I’m a great cook actually.
  6. Within 3 listens I can sing any song word for word. (unless it’s crap, then my brain doesn’t listen)
  7. Chaos follows me. It’s a niche, if nothing else.

Who shall I tag…….

Not So Pregnant, What’s your name Mommy?, By hook or pointed stick, Magdalena’s Revenge, Me, Molly and the Moon, Sleepless in Cologne, Solo Mom. And anyone else that feels like bragging on themselves.

And a reminder. Just leave a comment to enter the Pulsate Olympics this month! That’s all! No real effort required! Really!

    My friend Deana calls me “Direction Lady” because I can navigate too.

    I’m not sure what a meme is or how the hell you pronounce such a word. I’m such a dork, and always have been.

    I do remember though, oh, well over a year ago while we were in Korea, you “tagged” me to do one about what was in my fridge and I never did it because I felt that I shouldn’t do anything I couldn’t pronounce. Plus, I wanted to clean my fridge before actually doing it and I just never got around to it… or to having the housekeeper do it. I sure do miss that woman.

    I’ve always wanted a housekeeper….just so I could make her clean UNDER my feet as I ate bon bons…

    That’s cool that you can do good bread. I can sometimes, but aside from pizza dough, it just doesn’t come out consistently good.

    You’ve got that right about the driving with the FIL being a problem unto itself. Mine has a problem with making 10 mile detours on a half mile round trip to the grocery store to show me Catholic churches.

    I can’t think of 5 things right off the top of my head that I love about myself, but I do love kicking ass at math and physics.

    I’m jealous! I’ve always wanted to be good at math & physics, but while the concepts make sense, I canNOT do the actual work….I’m the arts kid, what can I say…

    I’ll do this as soon as I get my head out of this morass (my ass?) of ‘nothing I do is enough.’ Promise.

  2. Celebrity Gossip, Celeb News And Fashion Tips : » I Love….ME! - June 6, 2007

    […] Thordora tagged me with a meme during my hiatus, and I just realized that I’ve never gotten around to it. Sorry. One of the things I most emphatically don’t love about me is the fact that I am an Olympic caliber procrastinator. I keep meaning to work on that, but I just can’t seem to get around to it. […]
