i laugh too loud. i sing all the time. i cry easily. i've been told i have the oddest sense of humor. ever. yes, i'm the one in the movies laughing when no one else gets it. the only time i dance is for my kids. they love my "rubber dance!" remember in school when you use to shake your pencils til they looked all bendy and rubbery? yeah, it's like that! ha! i stay up late and wake up early. i see a therapist who helps keep me straight and making good decisions. i do not speak to my mother and think this is great! I am moody, opinionated, emotional, intelligent, and empathetic. i love all things girly but mostly shoes, and have a bizarre infatuation with the following: lady gaga, celine dion, stacy london, britney spears. (how the heck does that even make sense?!) oh yeah and i am addicted to my iPhone.

not me monday...a little bit of TMFI!...kreativ blogger award...

*le sigh* i couldn't figure out the links. so you get to get the diva version of promoting mckmama without her copy and paste introductory feature. this not me monday idea was fashioned by the baby loving mckmama over at http://www.mycharmingkids.net/. whew. that wasn't too painful was it? apparently she has these super-cuuuuuuuute buttons you can copy and paste, only every time i try i get a pop up message saying i'm not special enough for the copy and paste feature to work in giving me the button code. sweeeet.

and now, for not me monday...

  • friday night i was exhausted. so i know that i totally did not give my 5 year old a half of an extra dose of her medicine [totally natural people so...safe!!] so that she would calm down and go to sleep more quickly. i would never do that to get a few extra hours of much needed sleep because my days start at 5 am [if not sooner] and don't end until well after 11 pm because my daughter decides that she can't go to sleep if there is someone awake in the house. i most certainly did not turn off all the lights and hide in the hallway [pretending to be asleep in my bed] until i heard her steady breathing. no way. not me.
  • i did not not listen to my friend instinct early saturday morning when i awoke with a start around 4:45 am to the thought that i needed to call mandy. i couldn't get comfortable and just knew it was because i felt the need to call her, but i couldn't make myself get out of bed to do it.
  • i totally did not wake up an hour and a half later filled with a super-fat head stuffed to the brim with sinuses that pounded to the tune of "fire burning on the dance floor" and i most certainly did not wait to take my temperature because the thought of getting out of bed was causing big daddy sean kingston's crumping on my cranium even worse.
  • i did not stay in bed all day updating status messages pathetically to twitter, myspace, & facebook.
  • i did not ignore my children running around the house and certainly did not ignore the fact that lady n had stolen my umbrella, taken it into her room, and proceeded to throw cups of water around to make it "rain" while lady o shook their homemade rainmaker in unison.
  • i did not bbm kelli randomly throughout the day swearing that garden gnomes were evil and were responsible for every single dead body in dark water. no, not my random, silly, feverish self!
  • i did not ask sir g for fries & route 44 root beer so i could crunch the ice. i also did not lay there all evening and night watching ID's "wicked attraction" marathon and then did not end the night with a horribly sick, disgusting syfy movie called wrong turn 2: dead end. and no, it was no way as cheesy as it's title!
  • and finally, no way am i sitting here, eating my caramel apple from zag's booth from the fair last night as i type this. and i am totally not enjoying it immensely!

one hugely laughable "not my child monday" post that is too embarassing and hilarious for me to not share as tmfi as it may be:
  • lady n did not get into my bathroom on saturday during my feverish nap and find what she thought was a halloween decoration [okay and that tmi piece of every-woman-should-have-at-least-one-equipment was hidden inside the upper cabinet inside a velveet bag that was inside 2 bags!]
  • she most certainly did not proceed to tell each and every person we came across at the fair on sunday that she found a huge leg to scare people with for halloween in mommy's bathroom and that daddy hadn't painted the blood on it yet!
  • and i was totally not completely mortified when we were passing the "for ladies only" booth in the expo center when she did not scream in 5 year old amazement "look! there's the place where mommy and daddy got the halloween decoration! sissy! look!" and the entire booth + about 50 people around us did not bust out in peals of laughter.
no way. this did NOT happen to me.

you are such a sweetheart! thanks for thinking of me. :)

p.s. jeezum crow is basically my favorite thing to say EVER. i'm pretty sure everyone i know is about ready for me to find a new catchphrase. ;)

Hey, allergic to cleaning isn't so bad! (If it keeps you from having to clean! ha!) Seriously though - I kind of get that as I'm severely allergic to dust mites and have a horrible allergic reaction when I get into old clothes or boxes of old stuff.

So, you're a smarty huh? You could pass some of that my way. I'm smart enough - but certainly not highly intelligent. Darn.

Thank you so much for reading my blog and giving me this award. That is just so sweeeeeet! I enjoyed visiting today.

Blessings to you this week!
