I didn't even know I was playing

...but apparently I've been tagged! Jesi has now nominated me for the (wait while I check what it is called) The Super Awesome Hot Mama Blogger or some s*** (SAHMBOSS) meme/award. I don't know where the name came from, but somewhere along the way it has picked up that title.

It's my first time with one of these survey things (I usually avoid them) so hang in there.

A. Attached or single? 100% attached and glad of it. I don't know what I would do around here without the help and company of Josh.

B. Best friend? Well, honestly, that would be Josh. What? Husbands don't count? Okay then, my sisters and, when we get together, still Coraly.

C. Cake or pie? Probably pie, but that would depend on the pie. Any pie my aunt sue makes would be chosen over cake anyday.

D. Day of choice? Saturday...on the right day (unless Josh is working or otherwise with something) Fridays are nice too. (Am I cheating too much?)

E. Essential item? Camera. Needless to say, it was not fun to see it laying in the dirt parking lot at the blueberry patch from a distance and wondering if it had survived the passing cars. Thankfully, it had. (it fell out the night before while we were loading kids into the car.)

F. Favorite color? I hate this question because it totally depends on the item being colored. If I have to pick one, it would probably be red.

G. Gummy bears or worms? Gummy bears. They bring back such wonderful memories of grandma's house. I was always a fan growing up and she insisted (even after I was married) that I take a bag. I tired of them and kept untouched baggies around the house for years, but oh what I would do for a bag now that she is gone.

H. Hometown? Corvallis, OR (or rather, Adair Village)

I. Indulgence? coffee creamer. Don't take it away from me!

J. January or July? July...Jake's birthday and always a fun time of year. I look forward to it every year for some reason.

K. Kids? Four boys. Jake: 5, Max 3, Noah 7mo and Oliver 5mo. Yes, I have my hands full (as seems to be the only thing I hear these days.)

L. Life isn't complete without? relationships

M. Marriage date? June 20th, 2002 (official) and August 2nd, 2002 (ceremonial).
*we had to get legally married so I could apply for my visa to go live in Hungary.

N. Number of brothers and sisters? One brother and two sisters. I often tell myself how blessed I am to have such wonderful people as my siblings.

O. Oranges or apples? Apples. Never have been a big fan of the other; although if I were on a job interview I would have to say "Oranges, because I like the challenge of getting them open" ha ha

P. Phobias? Deer. Don't ask. I thought I was over it until I had to go outside at night at my sisters house (where deer run wild and free) and found myself hurrying to get back in the house...looking over my shoulder for the infested vermin.

Q. Quotes? "Mom...you might want to come see what Max is doing!"

R. Reasons to smile? An indian, a pirate and a kid driving a police car with a dinosaur secured to the top (and other such playmobil creations I happen to walk by during the day)

S. Season of choice? Summer or fall - I loved fall until I had children and realized that park days are few and far between.

T. Tag seven peeps! (see below)

U. Unknown fact about me? I would love to go back to school.

V. Vegetable? right now: the tomatos (I know... they are a fruit) that are hanging on our plant.

W. Worst habits? worrying. I'm getting better though!

X. X-ray or ultrasound? Ultrasound - although for me they have only meant peeking at my unborn baby. They probably wouldn't be as exciting otherwise.

Y. Your favorite food? Usually anything Janine makes. Honestly, I am always amazed. I do love chinese though.

Janine (sister)
Joy (sister)

I don't get it. This is a 'woman thing' isn't it?

Men don't fill these out do they? Other than metrosexuals?

:-)

I see that I am going to be tagged. Great. Yeah Jon, I think it's a woman thing. But I dare you to play.

You notice that I didn't tag you, Jon. But the dare IS there.

Perhaps we could come up with a philosophical/religious/social commentary one. Now THAT could be interesting
