First off, I am not typing this instead of getting busy doing things that need to be done! Nope, I am organized and responsible.

When we were stopped behind a car at a red light and the light turned green,Ian did not say, “Let’s go, Buddy” to the driver of the car in front of us who was evidently paying less attention to the light than he was. He is not at all like me!

On a quick trip to Wal-mart, where I was going to be the only one to get out and run in and get a few things, the whole family did not get out, wander around the store, fill a basket full of items.

I am not seriously thinking about getting my nose pierced.

I did not let my kids eat Taco Bell four days in a row because they wanted to set the how many days in a row can you eat Taco Bell record.

This is amazing. I love how God gives people so much creativity.

Kseniya Simonova is a Ukrainian artist who just won Ukraine's version of "America's Got Talent." She uses a giant light box, dramatic music, imagination and "sand painting" skills to interpret Germany's invasion and occupation of Ukraine during WWII.

Encyclopedia of Me - E

Escalators- I have a severe fear of escalators. I believe it stems from the fact that I fell while getting on the escalator at JC Penney as a kid. I have to talk myself into getting on them, once I'm on I'm okay. Just that first step is terrifying.

Eggs- Eggs are just about the grossest thing you can eat.

Exclamation Points- I have a bizarre love of exclamation points!!! The more the better!!! Especially when posting on the computer, where I use them to emphasize my good humor or assumed effervescence or to show pronounced confusion (what!?!?!?!).

Eighties- I am a child of the eighties, a time of jelly bracelets, jelly shoes, Madonna vs. Cyndi Lauper (Cyndi Lauper totally won, in my opinion), Michael Jackson gloves, parachute pants, Prince and Debbie Gibson, MTV, John Hughes movies, fluorescent colors, The Cosby Show, Yuppies, Punk Rockers, "Where's the beef" commercials, synthesizers, spiked hair, leg warmers, Cabbage Patch Kids (I had 4), The Smurfs, Footloose, heavy metal, side ponytails and break dancing. I used words and expressions like "gag me with a spoon", "rad", and "what a fox". It was a time when someone would say "I have a computer", and everyone would go "woooahhh."

It's not my daughter who has decided she wants to be a criminal investigator and now watches shows like American Justice, 15 Most Shocking Acts of Violence, and numerous shows on Charles Manson. She is determined to figure out who the Zodiac Killer was. At first I was worried that it would scare her, but it doesn't. I do limit how much she watches.

It's not me who can't wait until September 9. Ian isn't kind of driving me nuts. He isn't extremely hyper and hasn't taken to not listening real well.

It's not me who wore her pajamas more than she wore clothes last week.

I did not have an extremely sick daughter and I did not spend a ton of time worrying. I mean who worries when their kid a has a fever of 105.9? We didn't make trips to the pediatrician and the ER. She was not tested for the Swine Flu, which thankfully she really didn't have. Just a severe UTI.


This is me...

And lately I have been...

...staying up way too late.

...contemplating change.

...taking pictures of myself in the bathroom mirror.

...wishing that God never invented menstrual cramps.

...changing tons and tons of diapers.

...avoiding housework.


...wearing lots of flip flops.

...trying to be careful not to chip the nail polish on my toenails since a pedicure is a rare treat for me.

...working hard at just being me.
