60 Things

I saw this on someone else's blog, and decided to share. Go ahead and copy/paste if you want - I'd enjoy reading it on yours, too!

60 Things You Possibly Didn't Know About Me

1. What is in the back seat of your car right now? A stroller, a bag of plastic bags that needs to be recycled at the grocery store, some crayons, a few books, lots of crumbs, a few cheerios, a few goldfish, a few M+M's, and if I looked hard enough, probably a rock-hard french fry or two.

2. When was the last time you threw up? You've got to be kidding.

3. What's your favorite curse word? My Sicilian grandmother used to teach me a few. I won't share - in case one day you're listening....

4. Name 3 people who made you smile today? My husband, Jonathan and Matthew

5. What were you doing at 8 am this morning? Listening to one of Jonathan's monologues about highway exit numbers while pulling an incredibly cute and warm 19 month old in fuzzy, footed pajamas out of his crib.

6. What were you doing 30 minutes ago? Reading blogs with my first cup of coffee, enjoying the silence of sleeping children!

7. What will you be doing 3 hours from now? Probably the grocery store and take the kiddos out to lunch - we need to get OUT!

8. Have you ever been to a strip club? Not to my knowledge!

9. What is the last thing you said aloud? Wait your turn. (Jonathan wanted to get on the computer and play

11. What was the last thing you had to drink? C-C-C-Coffeeeeeeeeee

12. What are you wearing right now? Pajamas, robe and slippers - it's COLD this morning!

13. What was the last thing you ate? An orange - last night when we were watching a movie before going to bed. I'll be getting breakfast soon!

21. Farthest place you've been? From home? Alaska, I guess.

22. Dream/Favorite Car? I always wanted a Jeep Wrangler - but settled for a Cherokee out of college. And now the Wrangler is impractical for "families". Maybe I'll plant the seed in Jonathan's or Matthew's head and when they get one, I can drive it!

36. Do you have a dog? Regretfully, at times, YES.

53. Do you eat healthy? We eat home at least 18 meals a week - how do I know this? We limit going out to eat to 3 times a week or less. And we never, never, never eat out of boxes. Except for cereal. So this translates to: yes, we eat disgustingly healthy. Except for when I make gooey desserts.

54. What do you usually do during the day? If you're a mom, you already know this. If you're not, you don't want to know.
