Question Tag

One of the fabulous perks of #NaBloPoMo is meeting new bloggers. There is lots of sharing and tagging going on and I love it. This is exactly how I met the lovely Denise of Jayhawk Mommy. I am not even sure if we've gotten around to discussing the fact that I was a Kansan for several years before moving to the land of milk and potatoes. I came THIS close to going to KU for college!! 

1.What do you like most about blogging?
**Connections. Reading life stories. The amazing writers. The people that make me laugh, and cry and nod my head and think "hell, yes!! Me too!"
2. What is your favorite book, and why is it your favorite?
**This is like asking me to choose my favorite child. I love them ALL! I do suck at remembering my favorite books though. This could be because I read so MUCH! I started a renegade book club and I have to wait until the week before the meeting to read the book or I will forget it all. I love books that make me laugh and cry. Some of my favorites: 
3. What was the last thing you ate?
**Nutella on toast
4. The best vacation you ever had!
**Honeymoon when we spent a few weeks traveling on the East Coast or our month long family road trip across eleven states.
5. The place you want to visit most in the world.
6. Do you have any pets?
**3 kids and a husband. Oh and two red eared slider turtles. I REALLY, REALLY want a puppy.
7. What is your favorite pizza topping(s)?
I LOVE pizza!! I LIVE for pizza Fridays. I survived my pregnancies on pizza. There were weeks at a time where pizza was the only food I could keep down. Me and pizza are tight.
Favorites include:
pepperoni and bacon
bacon and artichoke hearts
sundried tomatoes, spinach and artichoke hearts
pepperoni and black olives
Now it's my turn to ask some questions! Ya'll are tagged!!!
1. What is the kindest thing someone has done for you?
2. What smells remind your of your childhood?
3. When was the last time you cried? Why?
4. Who was your least favorite teacher and why?
5. Where do you want to retire?
6. What is your can't live without appliance?
7. Why do you blog?

Reasons I Skipped

Did you happen to notice that I took a #NaBloPoMo break? I skipped the weekend. At first it wasn't intentional and I probably could have scrambled to slap up a photo or a quote or something simple. But I didn't want to be disingenuous so I said screw it! Here are some reasons I failed to post:

1. I am not a plan a header.

2. I spent Saturday volunteering at a local social service agency. I interviewed families for holiday assistance...talk about putting life in to perspective.

3. I was recovering from a visit of the state evaluation team for our program. 

4. I went on a date with Big Yankee which is an extremely rare event due to our opposite scheduled, kids, responsibilities, life.

5. I was finishing a final project for Classroom Management and fantasizing about the term ending.

Status Update

I do not have the skills to take a screen shot but today I give you my FaceBook status-thanks to the comedic timing of the seven year old.

Wyatt wisdom "So Mom I've been thinking and you are basically a bat. You stay up really late and when you are awake you are always taking care of everybody and you never really go outside. Well only for like the 4 or 9 seconds it takes you to get in the car to get us or to go to see one of your clients or when you go to your meetings. And you'd like to sleep all day if you could (he is annoyed I sleep till 9 on weekends). So yeah, you're pretty much a bat."
