Friday Freeforall!


Its finally Friday folks!  I’ve never been so ready for a weekend.  My feet are fried, my brain is battered, and my hair is frizzy.  Its just been that kind of a week.

As a result, I am in no condition to blog today.  Unless you want to hear me complain about the very rude landscape man who wouldn’t stop blowing leaves on the sidewalk long enough to let me pass this morning and so I came to work with leaves and sticks in my hair…  No?  Not interested in that story?  Then you are going to have to provide me with more material for a posting cause that’s as good as I get today.

Occasionally, I am sent questions either through emails or in the comments section of my postings.  I try to answer what I can, but let’s be honest.  I’m lazy most of the time.  I’m also pretty crappy at following up on stories I write.  I tell about things that are about to happen or problems I’m having and then never tell how they worked out.  Apparently this irks a lot of people because I get emails about that a LOT.  “How could you leave me hanging?”  “I’m waiting on pins and needles to find out how that ended…”  “I haven’t bathed in a week because I keep hitting refresh on my computer to see if you’ll finish your story….”

Okay, so people aren’t really THAT interested.  But still.  Now is your time.  If you have questions for me – about my pregnancy, about my marriage, about my family, about my house, about my aversion to laundry, about my new budget system, about my love affair with all things Target – fire away!  Post your questions in the comments section and I’ll answer as many as possible (or until I get bored) on Monday’s post.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!  Pictures of the non-baby shower will be posted next Tuesday for all those out there holding your breath or not bathing until you know how that works out.  (P.S.  You should be holding your breath for these pictures – they’re gonna be awesome…)

    We also want to hear outlandish things that have been said to you about/during your pregnancy (or worst advice given to you). Also second the Valentine’s Day report request. Also want to hear the nicest things people have done for you/said to you while pregnant. Last, we’d like to hear about your plan for world domination via Marriage Confessions :). J/K!

    I like the idea someone else had about having Chris do a post from his perspective. I also agree that you should post more about the baby preperations! And another belly cast soon too

    As for questions… what you most excited/nervous about as far life after the baby is born?

    How are you avoiding Target? I gave it up for Lent and now I’m regretting that I did. I do not, can not do the whole Walmart thing!

    Will you post pictures of your favourite room (rooms) in your house? I’m always so intrigued by other people’s houses, and I especially like the colour green you used for the walls in some of your pictures.

    What are the staples you ALWAYS have in your fridge?

    What’s one gadget you can’t (or would hate to) live without?

    Of course that’s ready for the weekend…see what did I tell you. Not a good week, at all. On the other hand, it ended with me finding the perfect place for the real baby shower. 🙂

    Sounds like your week has been like mine. I was so read for the weekend. I wish I was going to be at the non-baby shower. I know it will be perfect. I’ll be working on the real baby shower. I can’t wait for that either.

    How are you doing at avoiding Target? I gave it up for Lent. I refuse to do the whole Walmart thing because when ever I enter one it makes me sick.

    Imagine you are being interviewed by James Lipton on “Inside the Actor’s Studio.” Answer the following questions:

    What is your favorite word?
    What is your least favorite word?
    What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally?
    What turns you off creatively, spiritually or emotionally?
    What sound or noise do you love?
    What sound or noise do you hate?
    What is your favorite curse word?
    What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
    What profession would you not like to do?
    If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?

    I am hopelessly addicted to “Inside the Actor’s Studio” and sometimes daydream I am on the show.

    Who is your idol? (Besides Laura Casey)
    What is your favorite childhood memory?
    When you go to sleep at night, what’s the last thing you usually think about?
    How’s your exercise routine coming (HAHAHAHA)?

  10. Ginny

    If you had to pick between all your siblings — which one is your favorite?

    Oh, wait… you only have me. HA – I win!

      Tell me more about how you’ve avoided going to Target. I can’t go to Target without spending $100+, would love to give it up like you have, but where do you buy things like deodorant and toothpaste? I refuse to shop at Wal-Mart on principle. I’m so glad I don’t have to do diaper runs anymore, because it has cut back on my spending, but eventually I’m gonna need more conditioner…

    Perhaps you could put some time into the picture-posting options you’ll need when you lose that bet of ours. . .

    What did Chris do for Valentines day and was it the WHOLE SHABANG? (did it involve diamonds?)

  13. Sarah

    I like posts of your favorite things… where you post the photos of things that make you smile or things you got for the baby, or whatever… (not too much text required for those.)

    And I think you should make Chris post a “daddy’s perspective” piece.

  14. Lori

    Have you gotten any outlandish comments regarding your pregnancy or belly? Two of my favorites have been:

    “Ahhhh…its huge!” from an ex-boyfriend commenting on my 28 week belly photo (thanks, jerkface.)

    And “You don’t even look pregnant” from my aunt who saw me at Christmas, 20 weeks and clearly pregnant. That just made me feel fat.

  15. Catherine

    I wouldn’t mind hearing more about all the ups and downs of picking baby paraphernalia and the other ways you’re getting ready for the big day.

  16. Since this year marks a milestone year, what’s one story that is your favorite that can sum up the last ten years?
