(TAG) Six UN-Spectacular Things About Me . . .

I received a tag last week from Another Online Mom and I'm just now getting a chance to think about six un-spectacular things about me...I mean, do I really want to make these things public? Hee hee...

Here's the rules: Link the person who tagged you. Mention the rules on your blog. Tell about 6 unspectacular quirks of yours. Tag 6 following bloggers by linking them & leave a comment on each of the tagged blogger’s blogs letting them know they’ve been tagged.

1. I love the Bee Gees and have like 30 of their songs on my iTunes. What can I say - one can never get Too Much Heaven - You should be dancing too. Just keeps me Stayin Alive.
2. I hate pumping gas in my car. In my hometown, we had a place that had an attendant that did it for you and not until I went to college did I once pump my own gas.
3. I love having an only child and hate it when people ask me why I'm only having one. It's my choice, let it go.
4. I will argue with a wall - according to my husband. Both he, my parents and my boss think I should have been a lawyer. I don't see this as a bad thing, just evidence that I fight for what I believe.
5. I have a magazine obsession, but only have time to read them on planes or in the bathroom. :-)
6. I'm a sucker for tradition and hate change, but lately I've had to get over myself and deal with it.

Ok, Tag you're it: (I have picked you six because I love your blogs!): Jillian, Inc.; SippyCupsAreForChardonnay; ClemsonGirlandtheCoach; BarefootInThePark ; PreppyNewlyWed; Melissa Morris.

  2. Thanks for the tag. Will post soon. I have to think which of the hundreds of quirks I actually want to put in black and white! (PS - I love the Bee-Gee's, too. As a matter of fact, have then in my CD changer in my car now). I saw their "One Night, One Show" in Vegas in 1997 on my 30th birthday. By far the best concert I've ever been to.

Come On Get Happi with Happikins™

One of my girlfriends is a fabulous entrepreneur with several successful businesses under her belt. Her most recent endeavor reaches past general consumerism and takes a creative and fun approach to the impact we make on the environment.

Meet Happikins: There are 18,760 pounds of unnecessary lunchtime waste generated by the average elementary school each year. Paper napkins contribute to this waste — and they're also a drain on expenses. Did you know most kids use $200 worth of paper napkins a year?
Happikins are reusable cloth napkins designed specifically for kids. They can even be used as place mats for children who have food allergies. Happikins™ are a fun and easy way to teach your child the importance of making smart environmental choices. Oh, and wiping the crud off the corners of their mouths. You can choose from 3 sets of Happikins:
Each set of Happikins comes with five napkins and a durable pouch that makes a nice home for the napkins and fits nicely in a lunchbox. You can ev…

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…

New Years Resolutions Attention Deficit Disorder

My mind is already a confusing mess of what I want to accomplish in 2013. And it seems like every other hour, I think of something new or read someone's idea and say "Hey, I'm gonna do that in 2013."

Overachiever, not so much. But I do get excited this time of the year to start anew, symbolic as it is, and have an excuse to step back for a minute, press the hold button and think about what I want for the next 12 months.

My 2012 goals were to get a promotion (check) while maintaining good work/life balance (check), and lose thirty lbs (not checked). My blog took a bit more of a back seat in 2012 as other items came to the front and I worked on that balance, but hopefully 2013 will provide the opportunity to spend more time here growing my online friendships and sharing my stories/projects/news...

For 2013 I jump from wanting to save, save, save so I can either completely redo my house in 2014 or move to a new house ... to wanting to travel to NYC again in the Spring …
