5 Things About Me…Like It Or Not!

OK, I was tagged by BetMe and because she owns a gun and is apparently very good at shooting this gun so I will play along!

Five Things Found In My Purse:

1: A pack of Marlboro Menthol Cigarettes that has this written on the outside: “February 9, 2007 I smoked my last cigarette. Only 1 missing from this pack.” Just to note, this was not my usual flavor of cigarette, I smoked regular flavored cigs. I figured if it tasted really nasty I would no longer want to smoke. So far it has worked.

2. A Bottle of Pamprin. With a 15 year old daughter this is a must carry!

3. A Wallet with no money in it. With having 2 kids cash no longer makes it into my wallet.

4. Crayons This is for my 8 year old who can not sit in a restaurant without coloring.

5. Voter Registration Card. At least I know where it is when I go to vote!

Five Things In My Bedroom:

1. A Wooden Cross that my 8 year old made out of some boards from our fence.

2. My TV. Of course the kids use it more than I do.

3. Dance Mat that is hooked up to the kids, I mean my, TV.

4. Old Nintendo 64 Game console. I bought this for myself, I mean my oldest daughter when she was 3. It still works, the kids still play with it so why upgrade?

5. Two cute wooden eggs dressed up like a Bride & Groom that my aunt gave to me as a wedding present. She used to call me Egghead when I was a child because I was Humpty Dumpty one year for Halloween.

Five Things You Are Currently Into:

1. Boating – We recently purchased a 17 foot center console Bay boat.

2. Fishing – Because we bought the boat I now enjoy fishing.

3. Cooking – Since I have started eating healthier I have found that I love to cook.

4. Riding bikes – I really enjoy my daily bike ride that I take. It is my 30 minutes a day when I have no kids or husband, just me, myself & I. I really need to work on getting me & I to get along though!

5. Reading – Having been unemployed in the real world for the past year I have discovered that I like to read again. It must have been 15 years since I read a book because I actually wanted to read it not because I needed to find out what was going to happen to me because I was pregnant!

Five Things You Have Always Wanted To Do:

1. Travel to Ireland

2. Grow plants – The only thing green I can grow is the mold in my fridge!

3. Buy a beach house

4. Go to College

5. Scuba Dive

Tag You’re It:

If you feel like doing this go for it! If ya don’t then don’t! 🙂

  1. Way cool on the smokes! I traded my crayons for pens… and I have a voter registration card too! Yeah us… 🙂

    I laughed really hard about the mold plants you are harvesting in your fridge. You’ve got to start somewhere.

  2. Great list. My son would be jealous of the boat. He is a great fisherman if you go to http://joanharvest.wordpress.com/2008/02/23/tribute-to-my-son/

    You will see a slide show of some of the fish he has caught. Fishing is his life. I feel bad for him because he is living in Buffalo, NY. There is no salt water fishing happening there and he is getting depressed because it is fishing season. But he has a girl there and I doubt she wants to travel around with him while he looks for a job as a First Mate.

    I only live two miles from the beach. I was there for a while this afternoon. It was beautiful today, the first really warm spring day here on the Cape.

    Yea, watch out for Betme and her gun. I carry a knife. My cane also makes a good weapon but I want one with a sword in it.

    I want a garden with fresh herbs for cooking. I found out I love to cook too.

    I’ll skip going to college. They would teach me something and I would walk out the door and forget it. My memory sucks.

  3. Love the Pamprin comment. I’m thinking I need to do the same thing! –eyeballs 13yr old cranky dd on the couch–

    I did this one too.
    My brand of smokes was Marlboro Menthol full flavor. I still have my last pack in the freezer, when I quit smoking Jan. 13, 2007.
    Good luck on the smoke-free lifestyle! It’s well worth it.

  5. I figure Pamprin is cheaper than Valum!

    Red – Congrats on quitting smoking! I agree it is totaly worth it!

  6. I forgot all about this post! (Shows I read too many blogs, huh!) I came over here to TAG you, too! 😀

    If you want to join in, by all means please do. But since you JUST did one, I completely understand if you’re not up for it.

  7. I know exactly what you mean about the time to yourself on the bike. I went for a bike ride this morning and savored the solitary time. I only saw 2 people this moring…the two guys on bikes who passed me!
