I'm Stylish. Hey, stop laughing! Seriously, I can still hear you...

No she didn't.  Oh yes she did.  Racer's Mommy thought it would be the cat's meow to pass this along to me.  I think it's the first time in my life I've ever been called stylish.  My main shopping hot spots for clothes are Target, Sam's and Costco so I'm still trying to wrap my brain around that one...

Anyway, here are the rules:
  1. Thank and link back to the person who sent you the award.  Racer's Mommy, you're the best!
  2. Share seven things about yourself.
  3. Share this award with 10 other people and let them know.

Here are seven things about me:
  1. I hate other people's kids.  I love mine but despise others.  I have, however become slightly more tolerant of them.
  2. I feel like I'm 30 but really I'm 41.  There are days when I look in the mirror and scare the crap out of myself wondering who the old person is staring back.
  3. I have a ginormous sweet tooth.  It usually lands my ass on the loo.  Given the choice between sweets or the loo, I'll choose the sweets and suffer the consequences.  Every. Single. Time.
  4. I run as my outlet.  I run away from things and to things, but I always run.  Its where I find peace.  Where I try and find my own center of gravity amidst the rest of the things that are swirling in my life.  
  5. I think of my other son ever single day.  And it doesn't get any easier.  At all.  
  6. There are days when I hand my kids off to school and think, "Fuck em.  Lets see if you can do any better."  And I walk away relieved.  And I don't look back.
  7. Equally, there are days where I desperately want my kids near me.  Just because.  But I've never wanted it bad enough that I pull them from school. 
Scary, huh?  Now onto the part where I get even.  I'm going to try and honor the award and see if I can find ten unsuspecting bloggers but I don't want to piss off too many people.  Let's see how far I get.  

OK, I have six.  Did you think I was going to play by the rules?  I think not! 


  1. So you run? I'm impressed- I really should be doing some kind of excercise, but I get lazy as soon as the kids are napping...

    I'm with you on staying away from other people's kids.

  2. Love number 6!! (Glad to know when I give him to the ABA therapists and walk away I'm not alone!)

  3. I'm too fat from all the sweets to run. I walk to the couch a lot though. And BTW, you'll pay for this...this is twice in,like, a week!

  4. I'm with you on most of them. Except number 4. I don't run. I waddle a bit. But no running. Except maybe to the loo.

  5. @Connor's mom--I know! I was on the fence but decided to include you cause I love you THAT much! ;)

  6. Other people's kids are horrid. Especially the NT ones :)

  7. I don't hate you for the tag. Well maybe a little ;)

    When we were trying to figure out how to afford me being a sahm, hubs threw out the idea of me doing daycare. I threw up in my mouth a little at the idea. So yeah, my kid is fine (most of the time) others are ok in small doses. Not a huge fan of other peoples kids either. I think most people hate kids, right?

  8. Thanks tagging me!! I like your list, especially number 2.I honestly still feel like I'm in my 20's and I'm in my 40's too! Long may it continue, I say!

    xx Jazzy

  9. Other people's kids suck. That is a proven fact. I have the sweet tooth, but not the running. Not a good combination. I'm relieved to know that we won't have to be reading about your homeschooling exploits anytime soon.

  10. @Christine-All the people I know hate kids, mine included...

    @jazzygal--totally with you!

    @Lynn--no way in hell could I home school. I admire those who do, I'm just not cut out for it.

  11. I didn't know you were 41...snap so am I!
    You always make me giggle, when I read your posts.
    When I got to number 5. My thoughts and prayers are for you. You are one MIGHTY strong lady.
    Love you...Lizbeth ;)
    Lisa xxx :)

  12. As I was reading through all your points, I was thinking how similar we are! I like my kids, but don't particulartly care for anybody elses. And yes, I'm happiest when they walk out the door for school. I have a special happy dance for when they return in September after two months of summer vacay!

  13. @Lisa--love you right back, thanks.

    @Sandra--I know!!! I saw your profile and was like woa, she like to run, weight train AND likes Pulp Fiction---you're my long lost sister. You say you like ABBA and it's officially over, we're related!!!

  14. Hate kids in restaurants or public places like that...but love to see kids on the beach with their curious minds and running from sand to surf.
    But I couldnt stomach thought of having kids of my own (what did Christine say? "I threw up in my mouth at the idea" haha- thats what I did.
    PS- Love costco too- just bought my new "stylish" spring wardrobe there. ha.


Comments make me all squishy but remember to be nice. If you're not nice then what you said goes *poof.* There's your warning.
