Somebody Messed This Up.

I've decided to skip my run this morning.  Ballsy, I know.  But Yoga was calling my name.  Jeez, Mommy McD, your life is so filled with spontaneity!  Skipping running to do Yoga? Where do you get your spunk? 
I know, if only they could bottle it, right?

B-rox this morning so eloquently stated, I believe, an entire nation's feelings about daylight saving's time:
"Somebody messed this up".  

It was a bit of a rough start, to put it mildly.

SOOOO, on that note, I'm going to get on with answering some questions.  Bestest's little sister tagged me.  In my sleep deprived haze, I'm going to answer them.  HOLD ON TO YOUR SEAT BELTS!  Or something like that. 

1. What is your favorite piece of decor in your house?
I would have to say.... I HAVE NO IDEA.  You see, we've only really begun decorating this past year.  We painted, and lived happily with Rubik's Cube walls.  But we didn't know if we were going to be PCSing somewhere in three years.  Now that we know we're kind of here for... forever, we've begun to put a little more effort into the place.  I'm working on a couple of projects (Thank you Pinterest), and will post pictures as I complete.  

2. What TV show is a guilty pleasure for you?
OOoooh.  This is a tough one.  I am currently completely caught up on "Vampire Diaries".  (ZOMG, kill me now - I can't believe I just admitted that).  Another show, I feel completely guilty for watching is BBC's "Robin Hood".  Some aspects of that show are just ridiculous.  But, oh my, that Robin Hood is deeeee-lish-us!  

3. What is your favorite restaurant?
Another tough one.  I really love me some Moe's Southwestern Grill.  But, I think my ultimate eat out (which ends up actually being an eat in) is a little local pizza take 'n' bake place.  Scramble bread is amazing.  One of the best things I've ever tasted.  Ever. 

4. If you could live in any other state, where would you choose?
Dream state: Oregon
Second Choice: Hawaii
More likely to possibly happen than the above two: NorCal or Washington (NOT DC)

5. What kind of car do you drive?
An "Atlantis Green" Ford Fusion.
No minivans for this mom.  

6. What is the thing you do that wastes the most amount of time in your day?
Drive five miles to drop boys off at school.
Drive three miles to gym.
Drive three miles to house.
Drive five miles to pick up Kenny.
Drive five miles home.
Drive five miles to pick up B-rox.
Drive five miles home.  

Those 31 miles amount to 2.5 hours spent in the car every day.  Every. Day. 

7. What is your favorite website right now?
Uhm... I dont' know.  Facespace?  Runnersworld?  No clue.  It's like children.  I can't name a favorite. 

8. Do you have any special talents?
I sleepwalk.  Pretty cool, right?  

9. What is your favorite feature about yourself?
I'm told I'm oddly positive.  I take this to be a good thing, despite the "oddly" preceding it. 

10. How did you meet your significant other, if you have one?
He voluntold me for the swim team.  Saw him in his swim jammer, discovered I was a "legs and butt" lady.  The rest is history. 

11. What is your favorite color?
Always and forever, Orange.  Orange, Orange, Orange.  

Extras.  Just because it's Monday.  

1. What is the first materialistic thing you would buy with 1 million dollars?
Gut reaction: Pay off house and car.  Then go to Jamaica. 
What I would actually do:  Pay off house and car.  Then take WHOLE family to Jamaica. 
And uhm, shoes.  There would be A LOT of shoes. 

2. What were you doing 5 years ago?
Enjoying life with ONE baby.  ONE.  I didn't know I was pregnant again, I was just... ENJOYING LIFE WITH ONE BABY! 

3. Your last meal on Earth would be?
Lobster Mac 'n' Cheese.  

4. What is something you would change about yourself?
Erm....  Longer legs?  Unbreak my nose? Braces. Definitely Braces.   Mentally?  I'd PMS less.  

5. Is there a specific time you remember being extra mean to your siblings?
This is a trick question. I know it. 
Uhm, hello.  We were siblings.  But, if you need an actual example.  I purposely dropped my sister on her head.  Twice. 

6. If you had your own reality show, what would people's reaction be?
What I'd want them to think:  "Lady has some FINE shoes". 
What they would really think: "Whoa. There. Are. NO. Words. For. This. Mess.  Turn on the Kardashians, I can't handle this ridiculosity.  

7. What is your dream job?
Athletic trainer/nutritionist.  More specifically for pre/post-natal women.  There is NOT enough help out there for women who want to be healthy and fit during pregnancy.
Also, Nursing.  I'm currently trying to figure out how to meld the two.  

8. What genre do you pin on Pinterest the most? Why?
Food and things to do with the kiddos.  
Because I get hungry and because my kids are crazy.  Duh. 

9. If you could have dinner with anyone, dead or alive, who would it be and why?
Shel Silverstein.  Because he seemed to get life. 
Also, because he wrote a poem with my name in it.  (Even if she was a pretty naughty girl.)  

10. Who would be the other 3 members in your Wolf-Pack?
Well, now generally, I'm against going in search of strippers and cocaine.  

But if other activities are on the menu, I'd probably throw a bestest in there.  After that... I don't know.  Depends on what activities we're talking about.

I bow down to the 'PMS less' comment. I hadn't even thought of that. Maybe I should...or maybe not. :)
