Hello September,

Where did you come from? You just popped right up out of nowhere didn't ya. Here I was listening to complaints of a long cold winter, then fanning myself through the lengthy days of Summer... wait!

Where was Spring?

September, you sneaky month you. Where did you hide Spring? Well, you're here now. I guess I have to deal with you. Which means I have to get the kids back into a school friendly schedule of NOT being in their jammies until noon. It means that I have to look at skulls, dead bodies and ISLES of easily consumed candies every time I grocery shop. It means that Autumn is upon us.

I suppose it could also mean that I should get back to blogging more regularly. It doesn't HAVE to mean that but its my blog... so it will.

And since I am a dry well of blog fodder I would like to thank Linda @ 2nd Cup of Coffee for creating a meme for me to do.

Don't those day glow donuts look goooood?

1. When you go to Wowmart, what one thing do you get every single time, besides a funky-wheeled squeaking cart full of frustration?

Honey Nut Cheerios and Spaghettios with "meat"balls.

2. What is something that people are currently "into" that you just don't get or appreciate?

What are people into nowadays anyway?

3. What is something that really hoists your sail that other people might feel "ho-hum" about?

Spending time ALONE! Grocery shopping ALONE! And my favorite... thrift store shopping ALONE. The only other thing I think is better is spending time ALONE with My Love.

...i like to be alone.

LOL at "hoists your sail".

4. Favorite song to sing in the shower or car?

Always by Jewel, and close runner up is Always and Forever by Heatwave.

5. A really great salad must have this ingredient:

Ranch dressing. I know I'm so uncultured :-p

6. Advice in a nutshell to new bloggers (one or two sentences):

If you want to be noticed you have to notice others. Do it for fun and be true to yourself.

7. What was the alternate name that your parents almost named you? Do you wish they had chosen it instead of the one they gave you?

I think I was going to be Steven which, as a girl, would have been a little awkward... I'll stick with Becky.

8. What in your life are you waiting for?

The return of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Everything else pales in comparison.

9. You get a package in the mail. What is it, and who is it from?

Its FREE homeschool curriculum and all the exact stuff I needed/wanted. Its from my fairy homeschool mother.

10. Today--what song represents you?

I... don't ... know... What song do you think of when you think of me?

11. What is one thing that blogging has taught you about yourself?

I am not alone!!! LOL! There are other mommies who come thiiiiiiiis close ( ) to cooking and eating their children on a daily basis.

12. How are you going to (or how did you) choose the clothes you're wearing today? What do they say about you in general or specifically how you're feeling today?

I will and always do wear whatever is clean and comfy... and the clean part is negotiable. As a slightly psychotic Mommy of four kids age seven and under my clothes say... "hmmm, she must be a carzy Mom of four kids seven and under."

Lets not even talk about the hair do.

If you want to answer a Random Dozen then go ahead. Then stop by Linda's to let her know ya did.

Thanks Linda :-D

Becky! You're back! Loved your answers. "Meat" cracked me up. I have to have my alone time, too. I think this is why blogging and FB work so well for me. I can pick it up or put it down when I need to. Thanks for answering; I'm answering tomorrow.

Laura ~Peach~ said...

love the dozen and who ever cooked the kids before eating them???

R.L.Scovens said...

I have way too much darn "alone" time!LOL

a corgi said...

loved your answer to #8 :)

Wowmart; haven't heard it referred by that name before, cute name for it

love to read answers to memes; always fun to learn more about a person and to read the humor in them

I know, where did summer go? and I don't even have young ones in the household either to occupy my days

its always enjoyable to read whatever you write, whenever you have a chance to write :)


farmlady said...

I don't know how you do it. I only had two itty bitties and I sent them off to school as soon as was legally possible. My secret(until now), was and is, that I like to be alone too.
Thank you for the shared confession.

Love the new Blog header. It's just perfect!

Teresa @ Grammy Girlfriend said...

Great list....enjoyed finding your blog....Hope you will visit me and check out my new Christmas blog

The Greggs said...

LOL! #11!!! I am so there!

Deven said...

Amen, sistah-friend on the hair do in #12.

Saundra@ItalianMamaGoneCrazy said...

I enjoy my alone time too...

So glad you are back!! I've missed you!!!

Happy September!

Andi said...

You're back! A song for you? Hmmmm....I don't know the Sar Trek theme song...But that's all I've got right now, because I can't think of a single song that talks about a home-schoolin', pizza slingin' mom...Unless it's "She's a maniac, maniac on the floor..." But I don't know the real title!

Joyce said...

Loved your list...especially #2 : )

Sue said...

This is such a fun and funny post, Becky. I loved it.

(And by the way, I like my alone time, too!)


Life with Kaishon said...

I always love seeing your posts again. You blog so clever ly : ) and funny ly : ) Too bad I wasn't homeschooled so I would actually know how to write those words.... : )

Susanne said...

Your last answer cracked me right up.

Karen Deborah said...

Hey glad to see you! Talk about a blog break, wondered if you had left forever. Your certifiable B. But 4 kids and neon donuts can do that to you so your excused. Why can't the homeschooled kids be in their pajamas I think pjs are the bestest clothes. Yeah alone time is good. Going to the BATHROOM alone is right up there on the list. I don't have little kids but I do have a husband!

Son Tert said...

All I can tell you is that Spring came to South Africa - yippee - and it's about time too! :-)

Dena said...

Loved your answers. I remember when my kids were the ages of yours, I craved alone time as well. And when in the car alone, I never even had the radio on. I just enjoyed the silence. :)

Debbie in CA : ) said...

I find plenty of alone time in a day -- it's called "Doing the Dishes."

Glad to see you posting again. Saw on another blog comment that Mr. G is under the weather . . . prayers your way. We are in seclusion -- think monastery (lots of books, prayers, music, and a gate).

I'll pass on any and all neon food items. (But you already knew that, didn't you?)

What a fun meme and great answers too Becky :)
