Honesty, Smonesty

I got tagged!!! The loverly Sassy got me. Go over and give her some love at

I am pathetic, can someone PLEASE show me some cool tricks on here?

As with all memes, there are of course rules. I'll just copy and paste here
The rules:
1. Link to the person who tagged you.
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Write six random things about yourself.
4. Tag six people at the end of your post and link to them.
5. Let each person know they’ve been tagged and leave a comment on their blog.
6. Let the tagger know when your entry is up.

Ick…..6 Things about me…..Ick again…

1. I self sabotage pretty much everything I try to do. Example: I will say “Self, we are going to get back on this health food wagon”. Then, I go straight to McDonald's and order a 2 cheeseburger combo – LARGE with fries and a LARGE Sweet tea with lemon and I EAT.IT.ALL. Another example – I will say “Self, we had a good month with the bills, so let’s put some money in the saving account”. Then, I go to my local Wal-Mart and but a bunch of stupid shit I had no business buying in the first place. Self sabotage – I know I do it, but I cannot stop.

2. Sometimes when I read other Mommy blogs and hear about how they are able to stay home with their kids all day and I get to hear about all things they did all day (things my daycare mom is doing with my kids – but not me) then I get jealous. My Dood is self-employed and makes some good money, but not enough where I would be able to stay home. Even if he did, I don’t think I have the patience to be there ALL DAY, with the kids ALL DAY. Work is my escape and I feel like shit now that I wrote that down.

3. I am obsessed with Perez Hilton.

4. I have NO interest in Twilight or Harry Potter or Anything Sci-Fi. I gag thinking about it. Hate me if you will, but I am being honest.

5. I fully believe in NOT sheltering your child from everyday life. I do not want my kids to grow up in a bubble or LaLa Land thinking bad things never happen, ect. This is a hard one articulate but I am going to try. I want my kids to have common sense, I want them to NOT get culture shock when they head out into the real world. Parents can try all they want by not cussing, or no TV at home or whatever, but, when you get in your car and go down the road, the person in the vehicle next to you may have a porno on in their DVD player, or when you go to the grocery store someone may be in there throwing the word FUCK around like it’s nobody’s business. You cannot control that and I want my kids to be prepared for REAL LIFE.

6. You know that website about overused punctuations? I should be their poster child. Yes cyberpeeps, I know I use !!!! or …… or ?!?!?!?!?! WAYYYYYY too much. But I LIKE IT!!!

Alrighty then, now that I feel like worst mother of the year, I am going to tag some of my peeps. Here they go: – this is one FUNNY beotch, go visit her if you already haven’t. – wonderful blogger and sweet as pecan pie – this is a woman who is talented (more than she realizes) and has some FANTASTIC craft projects she has been doing. – she was my first blogger friend and she inspires me with her upbeat personality, and the Pollyanna/Breanna thing we have going….. – Ms. M. she does beautiful photography and beautiful quilts and is honest in her writing. – I thought I pissed her off right before summer because she disappeared for a while, only to return with a vengeance.

Thanks again to Sass for tagging me. Now, go visit her and all the other loverly people I tagged.

Love it.

And don't feel guilty about the kid thing. I didn't like being home, until all three went to school. ;)

I've done it both ways...full time job and also full time at home. There's pros and cons to both, and there's no way that one is right.

Now, about helping you with those links. When you're in compose mode, type the blog name, and highlight it. Then, you'll see a little green thing on your editing bar that as a chain link on it. Click that, and you'll be able to link to people.

Clear as mud? ;)

That was an awesome post! I'm so glad you stopped by my place today so I could find yours!

Don't feel bad about not staying home. I'm sure you're a better mother for taking the time and space you need to do your own thing during the day.

I think Perez Hilton rocks too and TMZ is my favorite celeb show (they just took it off the air here though and I'm ticked off about it.)

And, punctuation is only fun to use when it's overused!

@blueviolet - thanks for stopping by! Also, thanks for the imput.

I wish Perez wasn't blocked at work, at least I have TMZ to keep me going though. I just completed the meme on my blog ;o)

Nej said...

I'm with you on the punctuation disease...I use far too much of it!! But darn it, I can't help it. :-)

Average Girl In Average World said...

@nej - I'm an addict !!!!!!!

Smart A$$ Mom said...

AH!!! AG, I haven't been here in FOREVER!! I am terribly sorry! But what a great meme.

I also, HUGE fan of Perez. And staying at home-overrated.

Now, lets talk about Twilight.....harry potter can suck it, but this has some greatness to it.

Again, a trillion and one apologies for not being by. I will knock that off now.
