Because I'm Brain Dead Today

60 Things You Possibly Didn't Know About Me

1. What is in the back seat of your car right now?
Oh that I had a back seat. I actually have 11 of them and there is not room to name all the junk back there! However in the very back storage area of the van I have a Costco bag full of emergency gear, and ice scraper (used too many times since Jan 1st), paper plates and cups for church, a rolling cart full of my junk from my friend, Patty, and a stroller not colapsed, but set up because it's just easier that way and because I have the room to do so. There's also probably a renegade sock or two from the two year old that refuses to leave his socks and shoes on in the car.

2. When was the last time you threw up?
I'd like to not try and remember that!

Besides I was pretty happy with it until I had and nursed six kids. Would having surgery say that I wished I hadn't had and nursed six kids? Probably not, but I don't want her growing up thinking if she doesn't like something she can just have surgery to "fix" it.

Oh, and um, #21....didn't you go on a trip for MOPS over the summer - BY YOURSELF??? I would consider that a vacation indeed!! :)

And You have time to answer 60 questions on your email while looking after 6 kids! I barely have time to breath this morning with 5! Certainly jealous!

I'm with DeeDee on the jealousy over Krispy Kreme. I LOVE those things and we don't have one anywhere close.
That's a fun list of random questions. I may use it one day soon! :)

You kill me! You want 4 kids! You're allergic to children & cleaning! Anaphilactic shock must be a daily occurance. You made me laugh out loud in my hotel room and almost wake my napping toddler.
