Tagged: 7 MORE things about me

Ok, here's the next batch of "things about me" per the tag from Mrs. Wibbs. I know you've all been waiting with bated breath.

1. I love Mexican food. But then again you know that if you read Braska's blog. Enchiladas, chicken fajitas, guacamole, GOOD salsa....I never get tired of it. Long live El Toro!!

2. If I have the choice between emailing someone and calling them, I'll almost always email. But my problem is that I assume that everyone is on their computers 18 hours a day like I am. And I don't understand why I don't have a response in 15 minutes!

3. I am not a fan of shopping....not for groceries or for clothes. I used to enjoy both somewhat, but now it is a hassle. I put off trips to the store for food way too often. And clothes....grrrr. That's all I have to say about that.

4. It is not unusual for me to go 3 or 4 days without leaving the house or even getting dressed. I'm great at getting out of the shower and just putting on the next pair of comfy pants and a sweatshirt that's next in the closet. PJs all day, every day. It's a blessing to work from home. I almost don't know how to act when I have to be publicly presentable.

5. I really need to do my taxes before April this year. It's kind of cumbersome with the business and all. I keep saying that I'll "have someone do it" each year, but never get it together in time. But since I always have to write a HUGE check, it makes sense that I'd put it off. Get all the interest I can before I ship it off.

6. I collect pandas, passively. Pandas have been collected for me since I was born. My collection expanded greatly when I met my husband, as it made for always an easy gift. So Braska's room is all seemed the obvious choice for a theme. I'm considering clearing out most of the collection, so if you know anyone who wants 1 or 100 pandas, let me know. I'm currently at about 60+ stuffed bears of all sizes, over 100 figurines, and various mugs, globes, glasses, puppets, toys, and even a couple of small tables.

7. I have had two good friends have babies in the last couple in Belgium (Hi Baby Carmen) and one in Missouri (Hi Baby Millie). In the next several weeks, we'll have a set of twin boys and then another little boy. That's alot of babies...but it's about time we got some boys in the mix!


  1. Do you have a Baja Fresh there? OMG they have the BEST Guacamole!!! I just had it last night YUM

  2. You know, I could have written 1 - 4! I love Mexican food! (I'm trying to convince Brian to go get some for dinner!) I always email over using the phone! Shopping? Ick! (Except Target) and now we have so many nurses, etc coming over I usually get dressed ... but not always!

    But my taxes? Always get those done the first week of February. It's a compulsion. I want my money! And sadly? TurboTax is pretty fun!

  3. #4 sounds like me, not PJ's, but sweats. Since I had Cesalie, I just can't stand to have to button!

    Stop by my blog. I gave you an award!

  4. Christina--We don't have those up here...I've actually never heard of them, but if they have great guacamole, I should put it on my list to watch for when traveling!

    Michelle--I'm so bad, my therapists all come early in the morning, 2 of them at 8 am, so there's no way I'm dressed by then. Yoga pants and comfy long-sleeved shirts are my new "work wear." How did I ever make it to a "real job" by 8 am for all those years?? And if I was not having to pay IN a ton, I might do my taxes early too. :o)

    Val--Thanks for the award. No it! I'm anti-connectors all together. If I can pull it on or over, I'm out.

  5. I was just browsing Gymboree and thought of you. Did you know they have a whole line of panda baby clothes? Which are on sale right now?

    I do applaud the idea of clearing the collection (I'm in declutter mode myself). But how cute are these panda shoes?

  6. Cate--Great tip! Just put in a little panda order. :o)
