Mum likes reading, decorating, shopping with the girls, and Starbucks. She also feels funny writing in the 3rd person. Papa (also known as Sparky) is currently looking at me with a blank stare having asked him to add something about himself to the blog. (Now he wants to say something) The only thing he loves more in life than music and Coke is his wife and kids. (Awww...) :) Little Lotte is a genius on the computer and makes me fall over laughing every day with her quick wit. She loves computers and animals. Sweet Pea abandoned her family and moved to Phoenix for work and is now married as of 2/28/06. She is beautiful and smart and the most nurturing person I know. She gave me the greatest gift ever when she made me a grandmother. I am the proud Mum Mum to Andrew Christopher. There are no words to describe the joy of having a grandson!

7 Things

7 Things I love:


2. the word : autumnal

3. anything and everything to do with fall, especially pumpkins

4. weekends away with Sparky, doesn't matter where

5. watching my grandson grow and develop the cutest personality

6. my breaks at school - fall and spring, as well as summer

7. a good facial from Gadabout

7 Pet Peeves:

1. Doing things over again because of someone else's fault.

2. People who walk by my office and either : stand there staring, not saying a word, when I look up give me a thumbs up and a dopey smile, tell me they are just trying to make me smile (leave me alone to get my work done and then I will show you a smile!), or make weird, strange noises as they walk by my office. WHY?!! Doesn't anyone work anymore!??!

3. Cutting me off with a grocery cart and then standing there while it's obvious I am headed in that direction so now I have to stop and wait for them to pick out their cherry flavored popsicles.

4. That my cell phone rings and I can NEVER answer it before it goes to voicemail, no matter HOW FAST I am!

5. People who mumble and then when you ask them what they said, they say "Nevermind!" Argh!

6. Cars that see you are waiting to turn right and they are coming from the left and don't put on their turn signal so as to indicate that they will not be crossing your path.

7. Having to have 349 different remotes to turn on ONE TV!!!!!!

7 Things I can't do:

1. Keep the gas tank filled. I fill up the gas tank but I wait till the last possible minute EVERY SINGLE TIME.

2. Drive a stick shift.

3. Wear a bikini. (it's that gallbladder surgery scar -- yeah, that's the reason!) :-)

4. decorate well with Toile although I try, try, try!

6. Keep plants alive.

I can't even get through your lists without wanting to laugh and comment on everything, so I'm going to have to email it to you over the next few days (my comments). I only have two things to say before then.

1) Your photos of your grandson are adorable! He's a doll!

2) You can't look at fish? That is a little weird when I was a kid, grocery shopping with my mom (she wouldn't cut people off in the freezer section to get cherry popsicles), I would go over to the fish section while she was picking out me, and poke at the fish eyes through the plastic. Wanna go try it with me sometime to help that phobia? :)

Oh, on a side note, you have THE hardest word verifications to have to type in...not your's oughta try it!
