The one where I get tagged...

So I don't know if every one's blogger is acting all wonky or if its just mine. It will let me read blogs but every time I go to comment it takes me to blogger's sign in page and even after I sign in it continues to say "anonymous" on my comment and won't post it anyway. So I give up. I have tons of comments for every one's blog but blogger is eating them. I don't know if it will even let anyone comment on this blog but I'm going to write it anyway. So take that Blogger! In your face!

I. Got. Tagged.  I guess that makes me "It". Thank you to Lisa Hollar over at Jezri's Nightmares for tagging me. Being tagged makes me feel loved. I don't care if you think that's silly, it does. If you haven't checked out Lisa's blog, you definitely should. You especially should if you like short horror stories and poems that she's nice enough to post for free. And if you like those, you can purchase her short stories and poetry collections on Smashwords or Amazon. Or you can win her Sunday contest, where you have to write a story in 55 words or less, like I did, and she'll give you one of her ebooks for free and let you judge next week's contest. I'm warning you, its hard and there's some good competition.

So I have to answer the questions and then tag some other peeps. Here are the questions:

If you could go back in time and relive one moment, what would it be?
This one is really really hard. One moment would be right after our wedding ceremony, when Mike & I were standing alone in the vestibule of the church and my sister (maid of honor) & my cousin (best man) were walking back down the aisle. The photographer (Mike's aunt) snapped a photo of us and I have never seen two people look more happy. Ever.

But I often wish I could go back and relive certain days. The birth of each of my children. Although those were physically painful, the moment you look at each new baby is priceless. Or even just a regular day when my kids were little. I'd just like to look at their sweet pudgy faces and snuggle their toddler selves again.
If you could go back in time and change one thing, what would it be?
 I often think I'd like to go back and change things I've said or actions I'm not very proud of having taken. But I firmly believe everything happens for a reason and every single thing that I've done or had happen to me has made me who I am. And I wouldn't change any of that. I like who I am and I love the people who are my family. I'm going to quote the group Hinder here (Luke, stop groaning!)

"If I could go back in time,
wouldn't change a damn thing in my life.
I love the dumb things we do when we're young.
But the best is yet to come."
What movie/TV character do you most resemble in personality?
 This one's a hard one. I had a friend who used to say I was Grace from Will & Grace. I like to think I'm slightly more mature now. So I don't really know. But I'd like to grow up to be the totally cool mother on Parenthood. Bonnie Bedelia's character. She's artsy and creative, but wise.
If you could push one person off a cliff and get away with it, who would it be?
 I wouldn't for two reasons. The first- if I dislike someone enough to want to push them off a cliff, then that's just to quick of a way to go. I want them to suffer some. The second reason is because I believe in Karma. And it's a whopping number of bad Karma points to kill someone. I don't need that kind of negative luck!
Name one habit you want to change in yourself.
 My inability to say "no". If someone asks me to help them, I invariably say "yes" regardless of whether I really wanted to or not. As a result I end up with too many things on my plate at one time. 
Describe yourself in one word.
Talkative. Its what my school report cards always said. And not in a good way.
Describe the person who named you in this meme in one word.
Why do you blog? (In one sentence):
To keep myself sane. All these thoughts have to go somewhere, right?
And the people I'm blog tagging are:
Elly at Bugginword (because pregnant women love to play games)
Peggy at Square Peg in a Round Hole (because she's one of my favorite people)
Yvonne Bishop at The Angelic (one of my new bosses)
Heather Welch at Welch Happenings (she needs a break from crocheting)
Claudia Lefeve at Claudia Lefeve's Blog (because I want to know!)

Now you all are it! Nanny nanny boo boo!


  1. Blogger's been a bit of a beotch for the past couple of days ... not sure what's up - but sometimes it lets me comment and other times it will not.

    I guess we'll see momentarily if it lets me this time :)

  2. I'm testing too as I haven't been able to post.
    Oh and I'm totally with you on the not change one thing in the past. We are the sum of our parts, good and bad!!

  3. Oh dear, dear Spot. I have been remiss in commenting (but I HAVE been reading, really check your stats. How many Swiss readers do you have anyways?)) and I really do love these posts where you fully reveal that fabulous person I see hiding behind the brilliance and humour of her children!
    BTW, your comment on my post turned out just fine...blogger's having 'one of those days' I suspect.

  4. Awww.... you are so sweet! Thanks so much! I am flattered. You like me... you really REALLY like me! Do I sound like Sally Field yet? Seriously, thank you so much. I am honored.

  5. Okay, your reason for not pushing someone off a cliff cracked me up.

  6. Its going to be a challenge to work the word vagina into each of those answers, but I'm gonna try anyway. Tnks pookie!
