If You Really Knew Me...
If you really knew me, you would know that...
I can NOT start my day without a good cup of coffee(sweet and creamy).
My favorite time of day to run is first thing in the morning.
I do NOT like to run in the dark(I'm a chicken, so I go to the Y at 5a.m. and I can't wait until it gets light early).
I LOVE chocolate and Coke(sometimes together).
I sometimes HIDE chocolate and Coke from the kids(and my dear hubby).
I met my husband while working at McDonalds 15 years ago.
I never used to yell when I had just 2 kids. Now that I have 4, I find I have to yell just to be heard over the chaos(I really try not to yell, but sometimes...).
I am my own worst enemy. I am my own toughest critic. I am guilty of having mommy guilt(from yelling at the kids of course).
I don't really like dogs(except the really tiny cute ones you can carry in your purse). It stems from childhood when I was bit by a really big dog(and my ex-stepfather said it was my fault because I was taunting it...what the?).
I HATE a dirty kitchen floor. I sweep after every meal/snack. I can't stand stepping in crumbs/sticky spots/spilled milk spots/mud-from-the-bottom-of-my-dear-hubby's-work-boots-spots. (I just got a new broom last weekend-highlight of the shopping trip, weird huh?).
My favorite T.V. show is Grey's Anatomy. My 2 favorite Christmas movies are "It's a Wonderful Life" and "National Lampoons Christmas Vacation". My favorite movie of all time is "Tommy Boy".
My biggest fear is losing one of my children.
With every mile I run, I am farther and farther away from the frumpy "plumpkin" I was in various stages of my life (when running fell to the wayside). However, if I don't run, I feel like that inner "plumpkin" is lurking around the corner, waiting for me to stop.
I HATE bananas, but I eat them anyway because they're so darn good for you.
I am NOT the perfect mom, do NOT have a perfect house, am NOT the perfect wife nor do I pretend to be. But my kids are happy (most of the time), as is my dear hubby(we're still together after 15 years-that's something right?), and as for my house-well the kitchen floor is clean!
