this post is brought to you by the number five

Mom of 2 and Wife of 1 tagged me for a meme and her timing is fantastic because I wanted to post tonight but I'm so tired because B hasn't been sleeping so my brain is on standby.

So I'm glad I have a meme to do because I have this urge to write even though when this type of mood sets in I usually would just go visiting other blogs and commenting to my hearts delight BUT I have this total urge to talk and talk and talk and use run on sentences and OMG these words must be painful to read, especially by more grammar gifted readers (which would be all of you), so I will stop NOW.

MB gasps for air...

Aren't you glad I have a meme to respond to and not a rant or something equally as painful to read? Aren't ya?

So without further ado on with the meme!

It came with instructions!

INSTRUCTIONS: Remove the blog in the top spot from the following list and bump everyone up one place. Then add your blog to the bottom slot, like so.

1) Elizasmom
2) A Lifetime
3) The Life & Times of a First Time Stay at Home Mom
4) Mom of 2 and Wife of 1
5) MotherBumper

Next I was supposed to select five people to tag: (but it says if you don't want to, it's cool so I may update this later but I'm not doing it right now)

The blank five people to tag list:

What were you doing 10 years ago?

That would be 1997 right? From what I remember, I was working on my psych degree part-time while working full-time (with two part time jobs). I was single and I remember going camping often that year. Life was pretty good.

In 1997, I had a friend who had a beautiful boat and during the Spring, Summer, and Fall we would go out about once a month with a few dozen beers and make her husband be the responsible one. We occasionally would help with the sails or the cute little BBQ they had hanging off the back but mostly we would sing Rio at the top of our lungs and whale watch.

OMG I miss the ocean so much.

What were you doing 1 year ago?

I was slightly more insane then I am now because Bumper didn't sleep at all. At all. But I also remember this was pretty much when I was getting the handle on things. B was six months old, she was fun to play with, didn't seem as fragile, the weather was brighter and there seemed to be a light at the end of the tunnel.

And there still does.

Five snacks you enjoy:

1). Chocolate
2). Ice Cream
3). All Bran Brown Sugar snack bites
4). Cashews
5). Lays BBQ or Curry chips

Five songs that you know all the lyrics:

1). Itsy Bitsy Spider
2). Wheels of the Bus
3). Baa Baa Black Sheep (do you see a pattern here)
4). Frere Jacques
5). Da Da Da by Trio (I couldn't have it all be songs I learned at the drop-in centres)

Five things you would do if you were a millionaire:

1). Save someone close to me who is in need
2). Spoil our families
3). Buy a home
4). Take a really awesome trip
5). Would there be any left over by number five? Probably enough to stock a wicked chocolate tuck box.

Five bad habits:

1). Bad diet
2). Too much time online
3). Procastination
4). Laziness
5). Snark first, think later

Five things you like doing:

1). Being creative
2). Helping other people
3). Being with family
4). Reading great books and watching fantastic films
5). Camping

Five things you would never wear again:

1). low waisted anything
2). pink angora
3). stirrup-pants
4). Frankie Goes to Hollywood t-shirt in XXXL
5). anything neon

That entire list right there, with the exception of number 1, will come back to haunt me when I'm a senior and living in a retirement community somewhere warm. Yes, even that awesomely comfy FGH t-shirt at #4 will probably come back.

Five favorite toys:

1). My Mac
2). Digital camera
4). Wii
5). my lightweight stroller because it makes life so much easier

There I'm done!

If you want to do this meme sign up in the comments - I'll come back later and update the links to the tagged blogs.

I love meme's...they are so light and fun. #3 on Favorite Toys made me laugh out loud!

Ha ha, awesome. I'm afraid that snark first, think later will be written on my headstone.

Love the picture. Burn, baby buggy, burn.

something blue said...

Sleep. Are they supposed to sleep? There must be an off button somewhere!

Now I want a snack! And to drink beer on the ocean with Simon Le Bon.

Mmm, your 1997 sounds just about perfect to me.

Lizzy said...

I love the memes, too. I'm so behind on my memes, I feel like I've got a 4 meme backlog.
And yet, yet I still manage NOT to post. WTF?
Your 1997? Rocking. (And who doesn't sing Rio at the top of their lungs. Man, that's such a great song. I don't care how cool you think you are, you cannot deny the utter sexiness of Mr. Simon LeBon. Can. NOT!) *sigh*
