For my Hilary ...

Hilary (who is HILARIOUS, by the by. Really. I love reading her blog. Or joking with her on Facebook.) tagged me in a little meme.


And I wouldn't want to disappoint her ... so here it is!

1. Four shows that you watch:
  • Glee
  • Firefly
  • Castle (we're a season behind, since we borrow the DVDs from my mom. But we love it!)
  • Big Bang Theory (we're two seasons behind. At least. Since we check it out from the library. And it's POPULAR. )

2. Four things you are passionate about:
  • Learning
  • My family
  • Sleeping
  • Reading

3. Four words/phrases you say a lot:
  • Blast it!!
  • Crap!!
  • What the heck?!?
  • Gorammit!! (When I'm REALLY frustrated.)

4. Four things you have learned from the past:
  • I obviously am who I am. People always remark on how I haven't changed (personality-wise).
  • Having children (twins, even) isn't as scary as I worried it was.
    (Heck, if I can keep two kids alive and healthy, ANYONE can.)
  • I really do lack patience. And sometimes tact. Which galls me something fierce.
  • That I wish I were a better letter-writer. Then I wouldn't have lost touch (and contact info) with some of my friends. :(

5. Four Places you would like to go:
  • Disneyland (with the kiddos)
  • Great Britain
  • Alaska
  • Australia

6. Four things you did yesterday
  • Vacuumed
  • Swept the front porch/walkway. And gave myself a blood blister putting the broom back together. *rolls eyes*
  • Was reminded of stuff that I NEEDED to do for YW and HAD FORGOTTEN COMPLETELY ABOUT. (Oops.) But I got my proverbial buns in gear. Things are moving again. Phew!
  • Woke up to drag my screaming-and-gagging-in-her-sleep daughter out of her brother's bunk and to the bathtub in time for her to PUKE the STANKIEST vomit ever. (Srsly, Michael and I were nearly retching. So gross.) And I did that half-asleep.
    Yeah, I'm so hardcore.
7. Four things you are looking forward to:
  • Michael passing his Engineering test and receiving his license. (Prayers please? The test's in April.)
  • Having no mortgage or car loan (or school loan) payments.
  • Going on a family vacation ... someday ... maybe to Disneyland?
  • Getting another pedicure sometime.

8. Four things you love about winter:
  • Christmas
  • Thanksgiving (yes, technically it's in the Fall. But who cares? It's the HOLIDAY SEASON. So, yeah. Whatever. ... This is MY meme, so MY rules. *nods*)
  • Snow ... when we get it.
  • I get to wear scarves and sweaters and cute gloves. 

9. Tag four people to play along:
  • Aubri
  • Katie
  • Jenny
  • Robin
    (But no pressure. I'm not going to force you to do it. And, if I didn't tag you and you want to do it? Totally go right ahead! And let me know! I'll read it!!)

Robin said...

...you tagged Robin....I don't know how many Robin's you know so I don't want to assume it's me, is it me?!

Allanna said...

Yes, Robin, I mean you. ^_^

You're the only Robin that comments on my blog. (Though, yes, I do know a few others. I always describe you as "The Robin with the awesome eye makeup," just so you know. ^_^)

Robin said...

yay! and thank you! now I feel the need to work on making my eye makeup cool again and not mom-ish...

Counting ...
