8 Things You Really Want to Know

I've been tagged! Jane Anne from Gravity of Motion tagged me a few days ago for this fun blog meme. We've had company at our house for a few days, so it took me just a little while to sit down and complete the meme. I'm glad to be back to the blog and give things a whirl - here goes!

8 things I look forward to:
  • girls night dinners
  • sit-on-the-porch weather
  • Sunday lunch with friends
  • trying a new recipe
  • grocery store/Costco trips (weird, I know)
  • Fun Day Mondays (summer outings with some other families from our church)
  • co-op Saturdays
  • completing my whole-house reorganization project

8 things I did yesterday:
  • served two sit-down meals
  • baked a birthday cake
  • washed a LOT of dishes
  • bought new sneakers for Miss M
  • gave Miss M Benadryl for an apparent exposure to peanuts of some sort
  • was thankful for the opportunity to visit with my family
  • forgot to start the dishwasher after dinner
  • fell asleep early (10pm)

8 things I wish I could do:
  • have 'unload the dishwasher with a twitch of my nose' as my superpower
  • run a marathon
  • live closer to all of our parents - or have all of them live closer to us
  • remodel my kitchen to have more counter space
  • handle a knife like a real chef
  • catch up on all of my scrapbooking projects (and there are many)
  • be a better housekeeper
  • be more organized

8 shows I watch:
  • Bones
  • Burn Notice
  • Royal Pains (hysterical. really. in an over-the-top, are-people-really-like-this? kind of way)
  • NCIS
  • In Plain Sight
  • Tori and Dean (I know - I don't like reality tv - but it's definitely a guilty pleasure)
  • Grey's Anatomy
  • Private Practice
*those last two I could give or take, but they are still set to record on the DVR. I don't usually watch the reruns....

8 5 busy bloggers I tag:
  • H at Beyond the Belly (she's busy moving right now, but I hope she'll get to it when things settle down!)
  • Patrice at Williams Family Blog (she's busy right now, too....)
  • Georgia at Living on Campus... (she's expecting baby #2, so she's a little busy....)
  • Shannon at Blonde Ambition (she's just started a new job with a longer commute, so she's a little busy, too)
  • Susannah at Get the Big Idea (she's got three kids, and school is out for the summer - what do you bet she's busy, as well?)
Ladies, I'd love to read your 8, but you won't hurt my feelings if this doesn't make it to the top of your to-do list!

Jane Anne also asked what I was doing this time last year. Hmm... Let's take a look back thorough the blog and see.... Aha! Mister J and I were painting this (it's hiding behind behind the paper chain). I was also getting ready for a trip to California and Miss M's 2nd birthday party. I'll follow her lead and ask - what were you doing this time last year?

So much fun to read your answers! Thanks for taking time to do this. I simply love trying new recipes, too. And, I long for the day when I am organized. I constantly work on it.

Thanks for posting the picture of the calendar... it reminded me how much I love your paper chain idea.
