Tag Tag and a Confirmation

About two weeks ago I got tagged by Ladies of the House who asked us to share a bit about our wheels. Well, I seem to be unable to catch a photo of myself in my minkidhauler so a pic of My Love in his wheels will have to suffice.

Everyday when Daddy gets home from work the kids run (literally) screaming (literally) and jump (literally) into the back of his tired old compact pickup and go for a wild ride around the property. I asked My Love if he minded coming home every day to a screaming mob of hooligans... and this is so sweet... He said, "It will be a sad day, years from now, when the house is empty and I come home from work and no one runs out to greet me." I didn't want My Love to be sad so I volunteered, "Aww, I'll run out and climb in the back of your truck, baby."

After a moment of laughter he replies, "Now THAT... I would like to see."

I hope he knows that I meant I would do it WITH MY CLOTHES ON!

Sicko ;-)


Just the other day my friend at Fresh Fixins tagged me with this one:

Tag of 7s

• Link to the person who tagged you and post the rules in your post.
• Share seven random/weird facts about yourself.
• Tag seven random people and link to their blogs.
• Let each person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment in their blog.

  • Whenever I am put on the spot to find random interesting/weird things about myself I suddenly become a huge bore AND completely normal. Go figure.
  • I love the way my cats smell. Their fur, their breath... I don't know why... call me weird.
  • Every night I MUST read my comics from the newspaper in a certain order as I fall asleep. I love comics. :-0
  • Long nails totally gross me out! Especially on feet... oh sick :-p
  • I would rather spend time with My Love then any other person. ( I think that is kind of weird in this day and age).
  • I never liked kids, even when I was one. I did the whole babysitting thing (for the $) and I was good at it, but whenever someone would ask if I wanted kids I would always say NOOOOOooooooo! LOL, now I have four of my own and I love them more than I ever thought I could and I couldn't imagine my life without them.
  • I am actually an incredibly lazy person. If I were alone and independently wealthy, I WOULD NEVER GET OUT OF BED. Seriously. Remote in one hand, beef jerky in the other, and a computer in my lap. All I would need is for someone to bring me the comics.

And as if all that wasn't bad enough I found this at 2nd Cup of Coffee. You can find out where your blog stands... if you dare. Here is what it said about me.

blog readability test

That just confirms what I knew all along. I stopped maturing in Junior High. Well... mentally anyway. Which may explain why I make myself feel awkward.

Oh the humanity!

Thanks for the morning laugh!! I needed one after this long week!! I love the picture!! I am so with you on being rich and lazy....I could completley be the same way!

"Just Me - NC Beth" said...

You are just too funny!!

And you know what? I would be the same "lazy" type person!

Andi said...

Very funny, Becky...

I'd be lazy too...but I'd need a pile of books, not a remote, and an endless supply of chocolate...or would it be chips and salsa?....maybe I'd need a personal servant to hand me whatever snack I was hankering for!

Would I say "hankering" if I were rich? Prob'ly...You just can't take the red out of some necks!

LOL, I about spit my coffee all over my puter when I did my rating. lol
I don't know that I'd stay in bed, but I probably wouldn't leave my house. ;-)

Debbie in CA : ) said...

LOL!!! I'm "Genius" according to your little bloggy rating thingy. Gary informed me it was a random assignment process. I disagreed, but conceded that even if that be the case . . . I'll take a random "Genius" and RUN!!! : D

LazyCrazyMama said...

LOL!! One of my blogs is also a Jr High level! :) And I have an MA degree!! ;) talk about insulting.
LOL - I am also that lazy!!!

Tabi said...

I just wish I already had my degree!!! I was hoping it would put me close to college level seeing as I am considering being a high school english teacher!! Whoo, glad I passed that test and my three kids haven't fried my brain too bad YET....we do still have many teen years to come!!!

Life with Kaishon said...

Junior High level? Well that must be why I like it so much : ).

That and the GREAT header with 4 booted feet... the amazing music...and the sweet person behind the writings.

Hope your weekend is filled with wonderfulness : ). Let us know if you do ride in the back of the pick up naked. That might move your blog up to high school reading level!

Gotta love a man in a pickup truck : )

Karen Deborah said...

Isn't it great to be in love? clothes off sounds like more fun for the hubby. Did I SAY that? NOT!!
You are cute and not boring and I am IN bed with my laptop and tea. I highly recommend it for empty nesting, or nesting with large penguin adolescents. It's a lovely way to rest.
