Catching Up...

Sorry for the delay today...it's been a crazy weekend and a crazy morning at work. There are a bunch of this I need to get updated, so here we go!

1. The lovely Tiffany at Tall Tales from a Small Town passed on this blog award to me. Hooray!! When you have a second go check out her blog! It’s a sweet, funny, well-written break in my day.

So the rules are that I have to make up…I mean tell you…10 interesting things about myself, and then pass the award along to other great bloggers. The 10 things is going to be hard…but here they are…
  • I lived in an honestly, truly haunted house for a few years in college. The ghosts, my roommate and I all became quite friendly. I converted many a non-believer (Middle Sister) in that house.
  • I have lived in the south for most of my life, but still consider myself a Yankee. I just can’t make the switch.
  • I am one of 4 children, but grew up like an only child. My siblings are all a good age gap older, so while I was growing up they were all basically out of the house already.
  • My parents are the coolest people ever. Seriously…the coolest.
  • I’m near-sighted in one eye and far-sighted in the other. Needless to say, that makes for some interesting depth perception issues.
  • I’m insanely uncoordinated. I can fall down on completely flat ground, standing still, and frequently do.
  • I played the flute for two years. I quit because at the end of those two years, I could only play Happy Birthday and Hot Cross Buns. There’s the coordination issue again.
  • I sang with a travelling choir. We preformed in a bunch of places in the US, as well as Europe. I have stood on the alter at Notre Dame Cathedral and sung for the parishioners. That was cool.
  • I have a borderline eidetic memory. Too bad I can only seem to use it for the recall of complete nonsense, mostly movies and tv shows.
  • I’d be completely fine with Husband having another wife to help with the cooking, cleaning, paying of bills. But if she ever touched him…I’d cut a bitch.

Wow…I didn’t even have to make any of those up. Who knew I was so interesting? Alright…now to the passing along part.

2. I posted my short story for anyone interested...it's over in the right sidebar.

3. We spent the day at Middle Sister's pool yesterday and little Pie had a blast this time. She loved her float (since I actually remembered it this time!) Lots of splashing, and lots of sleeping. The sun and water wore her out!

Nikki said...

I completely love that you said "cut a bitch" one of the best sayings ever!!! And I think it's fascinating that you lived in a haunted house. I'm intrigued yet freaked by those kind of things!

Love the pics of the little one....totally adorable!!!

I love your 10 things! :) What a fun award- and I feel honored you chose me (plus it gives me something to blog about!).

sara said...

NIkki - I'll have to do a post about the house sometime. I was a complete non-believer until I lived there...now I don't doubt it for a second!!!

sara said...

Thanks Cindy! I love the awards...they're so simple, but they make me feel very Sally Fields, "You like me, you really like me" :)

sara said...

Absolutely Her Momma! I've really been enjoying your blog, it doesn't hurt that your little one is GORGEOUS! I bet a lot of people recognize that PnP...it's the least expensive one they sell at Babies R Us...hehehe!

I talk, then you talk, and sometimes I talk back again. It's a conversation! And we can all pretend we're not internet shut-ins who never talk to anyone. Hooray!
