Old School Blogging – November

It’s another month of Old School Blogging!

Elaine with cohost Brittany, went really Old School. Way back to 2008 when this question/answer meme first appeared. Five years ago…I don’t even remember what I was doing five years ago. Seems like a lifetime.

I love doing link ups like this where I can share random life happenings. It’s also perfect for Fun Friday!

Where is your cell phone? Right next to me on the desk. Yup. I’m an addict.

Your significant other? Ron aka Babuz. We’ve been together almost 14 years, married 11. Yikes.

Your hair? Needs a cut and am thinking of a color change. I used to be one of those people who got their hair cut/colored every 6-8 weeks. Now I’m lucky if I cut it every 6 months.

Your mother? When we get together all we do is laugh.

Your father? Always busy with crazy projects.

Your favorite thing? My kids. The beach. Running. It’s hard to pick just one thing.

Your dream last night? None. I slept like a rock. All thanks getting sweaty again.

Your favorite drink? Water most of the time. This time of year it’s a Starbucks Peppermint Mocha.

Your dream/goal? To teach my kids to be compassionate human beings. To be happy. Learn to be more of a risk taker and veer off the safe path every now and then. Travel more. Ultimately, live life to it’s fullest with no regrets.

The room you are in? The office.

Your fear? Heights. Snakes. Space. Outliving my kids.

Where do you want to be in six years? Happy. With my family. Anything else is a bonus.

Where were you last night? Sleeping. Why? Were we supposed to meet?

What are you not? A daredevil. But I try sometimes.

Muffins? Sure but usually I make them for my kids and will sneak one or two.

One of your wish list items?  A new wardrobe. I’m kind of sick of my clothes.

Where you grew up? Upper Peninsula of Michigan aka The U.P.

The last thing you did? Put a load of laundry in the dryer.

What are you wearing? J.Crew jeans, LOFT sweater, wool socks. I will live in wool socks till June.

Your TV? Off. We recently got rid of cable. Much easier than I thought it would be. I don’t miss it at all.

Your pets? Chocolate lab, Cooper.

Your computer? Which one? I am married to an IT guy after all.

Your life? Not perfect but it’s mine and I like it that way.

Your mood? 99% of the time is happy.

Missing someone? My parents and brothers. Living all over the country isn’t easy to see them as much as I should.

Your Car? Volvo XC70. Wagon driver for life. You’ll never see me in a minivan.

Something you are not wearing? Makeup

Favorite store? Pre kids – J. Crew. Post kids – Target.

Your summer? Way too short. Seems like it was eons ago.

Like someone? It’s a secret but it’s all of you.

Your favorite color? Green

When was the last time you laughed? Not that long ago. It doesn’t take much for that to happen.

Last time you cried? Last week in frustration. My son is going through potty training regression. He was trained for a couple of months and then decided he didn’t want to poop on the potty anymore. So incredibly frustrating for all of us. I thought I was done with cleaning up poo!

What is one thing on your To-Do list? Buy new winter boots and snow pants for the kiddos before it actually snows. Start Christmas shopping. It’s been on my list since early October but more than likely it won’t happen till at least 2 weeks before 12/25.

Okay, now it’s YOUR turn to go Old School!

Tell me more about you!

    1. Don’t feel bad…my son was 3 yrs, 3 months when we decided to go cold turkey on the diapers. It was a rough week but he eventually got it. He was doing it all like a champ for a couple of months and then decided that he didn’t want to poop on the potty because “it splashes me!” But getting poop on you makes more sense? See why I’m frustrated?!!!??

  1. I love these posts – such a great way to learn a lot of fun info!! Summer is my favorite! I wish that I could say I slept like a rock but it’s been years since that has happened.

  2. I didn’t have cable for 2 years! I didn’t mind it at all, I watched what I wanted on line no problem… But then I was forced to get cable because, well… IT IS MY JOB! LOL!!! And… Now my TV is on, in front of me, as I type this comment 😉

    And I have to agree with you, 99% of the time I am THRILLED!!!

  3. You cracked me up with your “where were you last night” answer! And I love Target too. It probably ties with Marshall’s and T.J. Maxx as another favorite store.

    Also, sorry about the potty training thing, I know how that goes. Hope he goes back to it SOON!!

    Thanks for linking up!
