A Little Pre-Turkey Day Survey

I plan to post something in the next couple of days that somewhat resembles an actual post.  In the meantime, here's a meme (I just learned what that is during this ICLW) that I ran across.  I thought it might be interesting.

1. If you could build a house anywhere, where would it be? Right where my current house is!

2.What is your favorite article of clothing? Hoodies.  Lounge pants.

3. Last C.D. you bought? I don't recall.  I usually download on iTunes, so if that counts, it was the New Moon soundtrack.

4. Where is your favorite place to be? Home with my boys.

5. Least favorite place to be? Dentist.  Ugh...I go on Monday.  Pray for me.  I hate it with every fiber of my being!

6. Are you strongest in mind or body? Hmmm...depends on the day.

7. What time do you wake up? Either around 7:30am, 12:15pm, or 4pm, depending on the work schedule.

8. Favorite kitchen appliance? My new range! Oh yeah, baby!  (Pics below...)

9. What instrument would you like to play? Violin.  Or guitar.

10. Favorite color? Either purple or green, depending on the day.  Today, I answered purple to another quiz I took.

11. Sports car of SUV? SUV.  I'd love to have a Honda Pilot with the 3rd row!

12. Favorite children’s book? I like Goodnight Moon and Half a Moon and One Whole Star

13. Favorite season? Fall.

14. Least favorite chore? Most of them.  Dishes is close to the top.  Luckily, my awesome husband does those, usually!

15. Favorite day? Any day that I'm off work and so is Nick.

16. Favorite food? I like most foods.

17. Favorite drink? GOOD coffee (I'm a coffee snob) and Diet Dr.Pepper

18. Favorite word? Recently, I've been using "chillax" a lot. 

19. Favorite inspirational book? The Bible

20. Who would you like to play you in the movie of you life? Kate Winslet.

Here's some pics to enjoy while you wait (on the edge of your seat and with bated breath, I'm sure) for a post of substance.

Latte on my old range (Keep your cats-on-counters comments to yourself!)

Latte on my new Range!  (I was SO stinking happy to see that other one go!)

Asher killing time while waiting to be diagnosed with yet another ear infection!

My super sexy and hilarious husband trying to maker Asher laugh.

She called me "super sexy!"

LOL ! Latte seems to really enjoy your range (I call it an oven and I don't know if there's a difference). It looks like mine !

My cat probably goes there too when we're not around. He's not allowed on the counters and table but he still tries !

Funny pictures.

I love the pics of your cat on your range (we call it a stove here in South Africa)

Great pics. I also hate to do the dishes, I would rather clean toilets than wash a dish.

Thanks for stopping by. ICLW

Your pictures of Latte on the Range remind me of a Mark twain quote:

"We should be careful to get out of an experience only the wisdom that is in it - and stop there; lest we be like the cat that sits down on a hot stove lid. She will never sit on a hot stove lid again - and that is well; but also she will never sit down on a cold one anymore."

Happy Thanksgiving!

OMG I love the picture of Latte on the stove (and his name? How cool is that!). I gave up on not letting my cats on the counters.

Thanks for your comment on my blog!

I will totally be taking you up on bombarding you with a bazillion questions once we (hopefully) get our foster kids!!

I'm following you too!!

Happy ICLW!!

I've seen cats in many places, but never on a range! LOL!

Hi Krystal! Thanks for leaving such a fun comment on my blog!

You and Nick and Asher & Lily & Mia & Latte are an adorable family ....tell Nick I love his "hat"!

What IS a meme?? I posted about my dear aunt Meme (say mee-mee) recently and now I'm afraid I must have confused everybody! I've only been blogging a little over a month now--and I keep discovering what a newbie I am every day!!

One of my cats loves it sit on the stove. It worries me that I have to stand guard over it when I cook. Your family is so cute! Hello from IComLeavWe

I wish I had a new range... Ours is a cantankerous old thing that's probably been there since the place was built.
