A little meme lifted from Diane's Place.

Here's a cute meme that Diane started. Just let her know if you use it so that she can post the results on her blog and throw some linky-linx love her way. She has a sweet blog! Dive in!

1.] How come I can never find: ANYTHING in my purse except when I'm on to looking for the next item??! I suffer the same dilemma when searching for stuff in my fridge. I must streamline!

2.] I wish I'd never started: Not working. I haven't had a job in the three+ years that I have lived in Alaska. I've now become worried that I'm past the age of a "desirable hire." Hey--I hear that the governor's job is available... JK!!! ;)

3.] I wonder why: Murphy's Law is so prevalent in my life? If something can go wrong, it will. You can take that one to the bank!

4.] Mama always told me: That she only had kids in order to avoid having to do any household chores: inside or out. Not in so many words, she just let me know from her loving example.

5.] There's this one thing in my closet that I just can't seem to get rid of: The Mickey Mouse T-Shirt from my youngest daughter that she picked for me on a trip to Disneyland that the kids took with their Dad and step-family years ago.

6.] My favorite guilty pleasure is: Actually getting a whole six hours of sleep! It's usually the first three hours, then up every hour on the hour or worse; aaarrrruugh!!! No wonder I feel like a train wreck! You all thought that I'd say recipe research, right? Right?? I never feel guilty about that(although it is like food porn!)

7.] I always forget to: Check the toasting bread in the broiler. Ask my kids about "The Famous Bruchetta Incident!"

8.] I have never: Been overseas. I would loveLOVELOVE to go to Pompeii and Dublin.

9.] I'm obsessed with: Any new and awesome kitchen gadget! I just wish I could come up with the perfect one that everyone must have in order to make one. million. DOLLARS!!!! And to seem so smart that everyone would be amazed by my brilliance! Snork!

10.] One of my favorite memories is: Times that were shared with all the loved ones at Mom-Mom's house. She always made the best pot roast and about ten side dishes with four or five flavors of ice cream(because she could never make up her mind what her fav was!) Good times. Literally. =}

Okay, kiddies! Your turn. Come on; it'll be fun.

Reveal your inner most selves!

You know you want to!

Why else do we blog?

I'll link you up as soon as I get this comment posted, and thanks for participating, my friend.

Happy Hump Day! ;o)

Love and hugs,

Interrupted sleep is the worst! I swear it makes you feel less rested.
And not making up one's mind about a favorite kind of ice cream might explain why I'm always buying different kinds! I'm going to roll with that!

Space is my theme this month, with Mars coming very close to earth and all. I'm trying to decide if its Amish or Buddah pictures next month or something all together different.

Looks like I am working my show all alone this month. But I can do it!

Have a fab Thursday.
