Hoo Are You Tuesday?

1. Did you make any New Year’s Revolutions?

Yes.  My standard resolution is try harder, but this year I have added declutter the first floor, establish routines, and save money.
2. What are some goals you have for 2011?

My goals for 2011 are in line with my resolutions. I hope to declutter my kitchen, living room, dining room, and office to feel more comfortable inviting people over.  I hope to establish better routines to keep my house clean and my life running more smoothly.  My husband and I would both like to budget better and save money to pay down our debt.

3. What is something that you got for Christmas?

I told my husband I wanted something I wasn’t expecting.  So he went on my Amazon wishlist and got me a new camera.  It is water, dust and shock proof.  I am also hoping it is toddler and klutz proof.

4. Did you see any good movies over the holiday season?

Movies? Who can watch movies?  No actually, we did watch several holiday themed movies, both kid-friendly and adult themed.  But on New Year’s Eve we watched Wild Hogs.  I had never seen it and thought it would be kind of dumb, but I really liked it.

5. Do you do your own taxes or have someone do them for you?

I don’t do our taxes, but my husband does.  We are hoping for a refund this year, but I doubt it.


I thought this was such a funny quiz I had to try it for myself! Thanks Toddled Dredge!

My husband and friends will agree it is totally accurate!  And?  I actually use dashes in my speech and writing, so that is too funny!  Although, I hate public speaking!

You Are An Exclamation Point

You are a bundle of… well, something.
You’re often a bundle of joy, passion, or drama.You’re loud, brash, and outgoing. If you think it, you say it.

Definitely not the quiet type, you really don’t keep a lot to yourself.

You’re lively and inspiring. People love to be around your energy.

(But they do secretly worry that you’ll spill their secrets without even realizing it.)

You excel in: Public speaking

You get along best with: the Dash

March Movie Madness 2008 Round 1

m3-comedies.jpgThe first round has been decided. We did not do as well as I hoped. Sadly, it is because some of the movies I wanted won, but we went with the Lord’s pick.

We got 21 out of 32, I think. We also have a potential loss of at least 5 picks in the next round.

Best Lady found a big screw up!  I have Wanda vs Ferris with Young Frankenstein winning.  Duh.  I emailed Jeff and I hope he will let me change it.  If so, I will post a new version of the brackets.

This may be the only tree I put up
