25 Things About Me - As Seen On Facebook

I don't spend a whole lot of time on facebook, and don't like participating in "forwards" because I feel like I'm pushing things on people. Here, however, you come and read because you want to. But, by all means, I'm totally okay with you clicking away if this isn't up your alley.

  1. My husband's name is Leon, but is George on my blog when I'm being nasty or telling a story that would embarrass him.
  2. We've been married for almost 13 years, and together for darned near 17. Wow.
  3. I work in health care and am hoping that saves me in this time of economic upheaval!
  4. I have three daughters.
  5. I have a goal to weigh less than my dog before summer hits.
  6. I hate the neighbourhood we live in.
  7. I can't jump, skip rope, laugh, cough or sneeze without fear anymore.  See #4.
  8. I want to travel the world, but money and bathroom issues hold me back.
  9. I LOVE '80s music!
  10. I also secretly enjoy some of my teenage daughter's music. Some of it still REALLY sucks though!
  11. I HATE skinny jeans. We wore tight jeans way back when ... why did they not look as bad?
  12. Junior high girls scare me.
  13. I have decided that Blogstalker is a guy. But still occasionally wonder if I'm right.
  14. I finally told Leon that once a month I want to either divorce him or kill him. You understand.
  15. I have learned not to blame the dryer for my lost socks. See #4.
  16. I think that the real reason there are not more female firefighters is because firemen act like children. Women just couldn't handle that level of stupid on a daily basis. See #1.
  17. When I'm PMS-ing, I average 3-4 chocolate bars a day. This helps ease the pressure from #14.
  18. I try to be organized, but sadly, I fail miserably.
  19. I long to be a blogger with a gazillion followers and time to visit others regularly. But I just. can't. do. it.   Sigh.
  20. I went blonde, had laser eye surgery, and got a tattoo of a flowered gecko all in one week back in 2006.
  21. I did this to draw people's eyes AWAY from my ever expanding ass.
  22. I don't think it worked.
  23. I have never had a girl's weekend away. I long for it like you wouldn't believe. See #8.
  24. I sometimes wish I had a sister.
  25. I just spent $350 on portraits from a photo session.  Yes, I know I am a photographer, but sometimes it's nice to get something extra special done. And we haven't had family pictures since before Olivia was born. My Mom and Leon both think I should take my photography more seriously and make a full time gig out of it. But I lack self confidence. Oh, and money. That too.
I hope I didn't just succeed in boring you to tears!!!  Enjoy the rest of your weekend! Oh, and check out Tattooed Minivan Mom for more memes!!  (Her blog is adult only content, and it's frigging hilarious!!!)

Thats a great list Rhonda - we now know more about you. Some things are very similar. As far as your photography just keep going and see. You are talented, very. I had lasik eye surgery too - 10 years ago and it was the best thing I ever did. Family is more important than blogging but least you get to have a few sisters on here. There are tons of Canadians blogging though - maybe a weekend away at a bloggers conference. As for the bathroom issues ....yes I do know what you mean!

Betty said...

Great list! Learned some new things about you.
Nr. 23 is something I dream about too!

I tagged you in my post today!

Ronda's Rants said...

Hey...I travel and I had three just put on a diaper and go! :)
You are too funny...and you are way popular!

Fida said...

Loved your list. I just got tagged and facbook myself. Actually, Lilly has a great idea - we really could go together once - I think that would be fun - I'll be back in BC after eastern. Why don't we have a rejuvenating weekend in Radium Hot Springs, for ex? I am sure you come up with an even better idea, I am just sayin'

Oh what a great list. # 20, 21 & 22 gave me my first out-loud laugh of the day. And you forgot to add that your insane mother also spent $350 on those same pictures, and we both have scanners! Duh! Oh well, they are gorgeous!

As always, you totally entertained me. And, what's with this facebook tag? I've been tagged like a gazillo times this week. :)

Aunt Julie said...

You forgot one! Veggie Mom is having a giveaway, and you really want to enter!! PS: I agree with you on #13!!!

I love how you kept blaming number 4 for everything. Classic.

Great meme. Thanks for participating!

I think I'm the only blogger left who is not on Facebook?

Girl. It's not even a secret that I like some of my teenage daughter's music...
But we've trained her to like some of ours too...(No music education would be complete without Prince, Al Green or Marvin Gaye)
