Blog Challenge #13

Three Confessions of My Choice..........

  • I've had a secret fascination with Jose Canseco since 1992.  Yes, I know he has been banned from MLB and is considered a joke in the sport.  Yes, I know he suffered serious head trauma when he was hit on the head by a fly ball in the outfield.  Yes, I know that fly ball turned into a home run for the other team.  Yes, I know he's on the juice.  Yes, I know he once boxed that red head kid from the Patridge Family.  Yes, my husband is aware.
  • I tend to not answer my cell phone when it rings unless it is a call from my husband or children.  While I may appear to be quite social, I really am just a recluse who likes to screen calls.  I prefer to text.  It keeps the conversation to the point and most of the time it keeps my mouth out of trouble.
  • I was once on a game show back in the EARLY 90's when I lived in the Los Angeles area.  It was very easy to be selected.  I lived in the area.  I seemed enthusiastic and clapped at all the right times.  I was young and energetic and full of promise (or so I thought).  My friend (who was my partner on the show) and I FAILED miserably.  I think all I won was a cheap camera that broke before I got home.  I also had to wear a yellow sweatshirt.
  • If you ask me the name of the game show, I will at least know you read this.

Blog Challenge #12

Happy Happy Sunday to you!  The weather is beautiful in the South today!  Today's challenge is simple.  Just screen shot my desk top.  My desktop is fairly empty so I decided to screen shot what I was working on.  Notice all the tabs I have open in Chrome?  This is reflective of a typical day for me.  Too many tabs open.  Should just focus on one thing and do it well rather than 7 and do them all half way.  Oh well!

Enjoy your day and smile!!

Blog Challenge #11

The question of the day for my next blog challenge.....

What is my favorite quote?

I have too many to name and some will no doubt date me, so just humor me a bit would you?  But first, my personal favorite.....

"Get over it" -- I heard this so much while growing up that I threatened to have it put on a headstone.

Now, I'll just allow you to view my TRUTH pinterest board to see words or sayings I love....

Happy Friday to you!!

Blog Challenge #10

Thought I disbanded the blog challenge didn't you?

I hope to see this thru to Challenge #30 but at the rate I am going, it might be December before I finish. That's ok thought.  Baby steps!

I don't know who thought of these questions but they've got me thinking!

Challenge #10 -- If I could only live off one food and one beverage for the rest of my years, what would it be?

Before I got off the Route 44 crack I would have immediately said Diet Coke or Sweet Tea for my beverage.  Today, my beverage of choice is water with  Arbonne Fizz Sticks or water with fresh squeezed lemon juice and Stevia.

The only food I think, that I would never get sick of... would be sushi but I probably would have mercury poisoning from so much fish.

What food/drink can you not live without?

Blog Challenge #9

Just returned from a week at the beach.  What a blessing to spend a time with family, good friends and nothing to do but sleep in, soak up the sun and just relax.  I've been home a few days and can't seem to find the motivation to get caught up on laundry or get back on task with my "summer to-do" list.

What I can do though is continue on with my blogging challenge.  

Number 9 is to list my pet peeves....

Shoppers who are too lazy to return their buggies to the holding stall.

When you are on a phone call and the person you are talking to keeps having side conversations.  Are they talking to me?  Talking to them?  I have been known to hang up when this happens.

When certain family members leave empty boxes, containers, milk jugs, whatever in the pantry or fridge.  Is it really too much work to throw the empties away?

When the kids at school, cannot take the time to remember my name and refer to me as "The Office Lady".  It's quite alright for me to call myself this, but not alright for someone else to.

I'm sure I have more but its late and my thoughts are fuzzy.

Now tell me...what is your pet peeve?

Night Night.
