Birthday Story

I had a really great birthday. Rather than tell you how old I am I will tell you a little story:

This morning started out okay. I was peacefully sipping my requisite cup of coffee before taking on any kind of tasks required of a housewife/mother/dog owner. Chris was beside me doing the same. My darling daughter, who has for the past few days been a mama's girl (I don't know what happened to change her from daddy's girl to mama's girl--although I suspect it has something to do with teeth coming in, not because I am the coolest mom ever), was trying to climb into my lap. She hit my arm and my coffee spilled right into my lap. My pj's were rather thin, the coffee was warm.
"It feels like I've peed myself," I told Chris.
"That's probably going to happen a lot now that you are older," he said.

So, yeah, I had a nice birthday. Will he be having a nice birthday in June? Doubt it.

Good Timing, Carrie...I was Due for a New Blog Post

My lovely sister-in-law, Carrie, tagged me in a blog post. I'm supposed to answer all these questions about myself. Will this amuse anyone but me? Probably not. Does it matter? Probably not...

1. What is your biggest pet peeve?
Hands down, without a doubt, the answer would be smacking. Smacking food, smacking gum. I will want to hit you. Also, and this is really gross, so it should be your pet-peeve too--you know when people have a stopped up nose and they inhale and you just know all those boogers are in their mouth?...and then they don't spit it out. Go ahead, spit it out--it may be rude to spit, but I can live with it because the other alternative is that you've swallowed all those boogers and that just makes me want to gag.

2. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
By the ocean. A warm ocean where I could swim or snorkel every day. I LOVE the sea. It's so mysterious. It can kill you. For some reason that appeals to me. Which is ironic because I don't like spiders and they can kill me too. That's comparing apples and oranges and is probably ridiculous.

3. Have you ever been searched by the cops?
Searched? No. I've never done anything that would even warrant a ticket.

4. What is the one thing on your mind right now?
Why isn't my child sleeping? She's supposed to be taking a nap and instead she is talking in her crib and has been for about an hour now. She's calling Sophie (our dog) and telling her to go outside.

5. Favorite song right now.
Carrie, you're making me look bad with your Christian music favorites.
I like:
Nelly's "Just a Dream"
and anything else I can dance to.

6. What talent do you wish you had?
I wish I was crafty. Martha Stewart Crafty. I'm plenty other kind of crafty.
Creating things causes me great frustration. If it takes more than 5 minutes then it's probably already lost my interest.

7. Favorite drink.
Well, at the risk of sounding like an alcoholic I like gin and tonics, bloody mary's, and dark beer. But, not all at once.

8. In one word, how would you describe yourself.

I'm supposed to tag other people. But, last time I did one of these Q&A's the people I tagged didn't do it, so I'm going to go clean my house now.
