OK! Here are my Honest facts about myself dedicated to Supermom for my lovely award.

1. I hate being mean to people: I SWEAR! I am a nice person...let's not confuse that with being a pussy. I am not a pussy. What I am saying is that I will not intentionally be mean to someone, just because. I mean I can be a bitch and I do NOT let people push me around, but I tend to take a more rational or tactical approach. Like for instance if a food place gets my order wrong or if their is a problem at the checkout at Wal-Mart. I am understandable. In other situations, like when you have to tell someone something they do not want to hear...I hate being that person, it feels mean. Like if they smell of B.O. or if they have food stuck in their teeth I find those situations a little uncomfortable.

2. I can get a tad wild: I never intend to embarrass or make anyone around me feel uncomfortable on purpose. Now sometimes I do this without my knowledge. I am a very free-spirited person who does not embarrass easy, so when I am with people who are more shy, I tend to embarrass them because I love to have a good time. I am not afraid to let my hair down and live it up. If there is no one on the dance floor and I LOVE the song playing...OH I am there!!! ....and if you are standing by me, I might grab you and bring you along for the ride! Sorry! Now it my more older chubbier days....wet T-shirt contests, bikini contests, best butt contests, and flashing my knockers are kinda out of the picture....BUT when I was younger BRING IT ON! I still get a bit nutty when I am free from my home, kids, chores, blah, blah, blah... you get the picture.

3. I believe in "What goes around comes around.": Say it how ever you want...Karma, the Golden Rule, still happens. So be good to one another. I believe in random acts of kindness, pay it forward, and forgiveness. I try and not hold grudges life is just too short. (except for a girl named Justine she can burn in hell) but other than that.... :-)

4. I believe in unconditional love: Not matter what my children will ever do in their life time I will always love them. I may not proud of them for something or I might hate the decisions they make, but I will ALWAYS love them. If they do something so horrible that it saddens my heart or breaks it.....I will always love them, even if they hate me in return. I will always be there for them.

5. I believe in ghosts/spirits: More than once this has been proven to me in my life. You do not have to believe me and I am not going to try and prove it to you, but it is the truth.

6. I am a seeker of truth: I hate being lied to. If I smell a lie, I will always try and find the truth especially if it effects me directly. I understand that there are little lies that we all tell, and I do believe that in some situations a little lying is for the best. Then there are those people who just lie about everything...drives me crazy. For example, politicians suck ass. I saw a preview for this show "Lie to Me" with Tim Roth, I think I would enjoy that show lol. I might have to watch a couple of the shows on the net and maybe buy the series. I love science, books, the unexplained, mysteries, and the discovery channel (Not that I ever get to watch it. No cable.) I do however get to watch Bones and Supernatural so I can't bitch too much.

7. I have a very close family: My immediate and extended family are all very close....and big. lol My mother, father, brother, and sister are the best in the world! Of course I am a little biased. I tell them everything and they are my confidants and best friends, and I am theirs. Then there is the rest of the family, the whole bajillon gazillon of them. My father is the oldest of nine and they all have families which have families.... "Family Get Togethers" are so much fun. WE just have to find a place where we can all fit. It is always so nice to see everyone.

8. I think naked men look weird: Am I alone on this one? I love seeing MOSTLY naked with a towel or a sheet wrapped around them where you can ALMOST see everything. Or they are in a bath or shower......Or Hell, even them naked but they have their back to you....but once you see that just thinks it looks wrong. Don't get me wrong here...I love penis and everything it does for me, but I just find them unattractive. I think that is why in movies you never see the penis on a always see nude women ALL the time, but full frontal on a male...rare indeed. I think it is because the movie-goers agree with me....cock and balls not sexy.

9. I am a Hot-Lunch gal: In school there are two types of people; the ones who eat hot lunches and the ones who eat cold lunches. The cold lunch people are the ones who almost always brought a sack lunch from home. Then there are the Hot Lunch people who almost always ate in the cafeteria. I am a very picky eater and I have to say I that school lunches were pretty good. Of course there were a few that I did not care for but most of them were good. Crunchy Munchy Chili w/ the huge cinnamon roll...hmmmmmm. I also loved the chicken fried steak w/ mashed potatoes. :-)

10. I was a thumb-sucking, sleep-walking, bed-wetter: That's right ladies and gentlemen you read correctly! When I was younger I was a victim to all three. First off, I sucked my thumb for a VERY long time. I think I finally quit when I was in 4th grade....seriously. Now it was not from the lack of my parents trying to get me to quit....whew...some of the shit they put me They tried everything. I was just very stubborn. Then one day I decided "I was a big girl and need to quit sucking my thumb." At night when I would go to bed and shove my hand under my pillow and behind my head to keep temptation at a minimum. And that is that. I quit. (I still sleep like that to this day)

When I would sleepwalk apparently my goal was to use the restroom. According to my mother, I would get up walk to the laundry room/bathroom and squat in front of the washer and pee. From my understanding, they started closing my bedroom door to deter me from leaving the room. Then the bed wetting started. I wet my bed...a lot. I can even remember the dream I had when I did it....I am walking down the hall, go into the bathroom, lift the toilet lid (all in a hurry because I have to pee REALLY REALLY bad) I sit down on the the toilet and pee saying "Ahhhhhhhhhh" The I feel warm ALL over...then I wake up soaked in warm pee. I sit up and start crying for my mommy. Poor mom....and my sister who shared the bed with me.

Welp, that is it...hope you enjoyed it. Thank you once again to Supermom and Momma Young for making a my day just that much better!! Kisses to both of you! Congrats to all those new awards winners!! I will see all my fellow bloggers another time.

Sleepy's "T" list

So my new friend Jaime over @ Red Red Whine has opted to let me in on the fun of their little game. Yippee! Basically, it is fun with letters. You have to list your 10 favorite things that begin with the same letter that is assigned to you by the blog owner, in this case Jaime and her friend Just Jen. Jamie has assigned me the letter "T." Now I was a little surprised to find that this was harder than it sounded. lol Hence the reason it has taken me so long to write this post. I feel I have come up with the best list I could think of.

Introducing my favorite things that begin with the letter "T." They are no particular order.

1. Talking: Well this is a big surprise huh? I LOVE to My most common form of communication is talking on the phone. I am at home all day long with 3 children that barely speak. So I talk to myself A LOT. Even though......there are times when I go HOURS without talking at all, because frankly I just get sick off having a one-sided conversation with myself and my non-speaking children. When I get sick of talking to myself, I "reach out and touch someone." I call my sister probably ten times during a normal work day with absolutely nothing to say...I just wanted to hear someone else's voice. It's sooooooo sad. I have to say though she is a great sport about it lol.

2. Thursdays: I love Thursdays. This is a night where I actually PLAN on having an nice relaxing evening. I order Mr. Goodscents almost every Thursday, put my kids to bed, and sit down and watch Supernatural. (of course NOW I guess that Bones is on Thursday's as well WOOT!) Two of my favorite shows in one evening....ahhhhhh.

3. Thunderstorms: Hmmmmmm....the sound of thunder rolling throughout the sky...rain falling, lightning webbing through the sky, and the smell of the air. It's enough to get anyone horny, especially in the springtime! Now of course I do not like the whole tornado, hail, flooding,... stuff like that, but the storm rumbling and building is awesome.

4. Taco Tico: YUMMY! This has to be one of my favorite fast food joints. Crunchy tacos, taco burger, and nachos. I wish I ate here more often, but as it husband prefers Taco Bell and it is closer. Since he is the one that usually goes out to get the food; I end up with Taco Bell more often than Tico. Oh least I get anytime I want when I am with my sister!

5. Tax Returns: Money, Money, Money, Money, Money...This is my Christmas right here. Every year we get a pretty good size tax return and it is sooooo nice. This is when we pay off debts and have a little extra spending money to buy a late Christmas for my husband and I. This year might be a tad different this year as my husband may be laid-off. :-( So instead, we will be using this money to pay bills only. Everyone, please cross your fingers so that my husband does NOT get laid-off. Talk about a rough time....

6. Tough Guys: Ok what can I say....I have a soft spot. I like men who are tough, you know the type....strong, manly, athletic, confident, a bit egotistical, and they usually have a job like in the military, fire fighter, construction, police officer, or bouncer. They have a bit of a wild side and ooze sexual energy. Now, I am totally helpless when you find that they have a brain, a sensitive side, and treat women with respect. SIGH

7. Time to Myself: I LOVE THIS...but it rarely happens. I consider leaving my home without kids...or stay at home while the kids are gone... "Time to Myself." Not, my husband taking the kids to the basement while I stay upstairs and hide in my room. As a stay at home mommy, I do not get Mommy time often. So it is such a JOY when I do.

8. Touch Screen: Can I say Word Dojo? I love this game lol If you are not familiar with Touch Screen it is a game system usually found at a sports bar or a bar & grill. It has various games to play while you sit and drink, snack, watch TV, or chat with a friend. I could spend hours playing these games...and I have! One time my sister and I went and just drank soda and played for a few hours lol. They are addicting so BEWARE!...but oh so fun!

9. Traveling: Again...something I rarely get to do, but LOVE. I have so many places I want to see and visit. I have missed out on a ton of opportunities too because of my most demanding job...being a mommy. But I try. My friend Cush as been living overseas for years and has left an open invite pretty much everywhere they have lived or vacationed....sadly I have never been able to take her up on that fantastic opportunity. I am so jealous of her! Italy, London, Ireland during St. Patty's Day, Germany during Oktoberfest, Paris for Valentine's day (that is this year)...just to name a few. Anyway, my sister and I have vowed to try and travel somewhere everyone from now on...hopefully somewhere haunted! Well, see how we do.

10. T-shirts: Finally, something just simple but at the same time a necessity. I love nice comfortable clothing. I wear T-shirts all the time...usually accompanied with pajama pants...soft, cotton, comfortable, and snugly. I also love them on my husband. He looks great in T-shirts. I snuggle up against his chest and just could lay there for hours. Heaven.

Well that is it for my top "T"s. Thanks you Jamie for letting me in on the fun!

Of course I missed the blog post in which she gave it to me, due do this crazy-ass thing called "Life." As all of you can tell I haven't been on in awhile lol. I do apologize Maki for not responding sooner.

Here is my new shiny blog award:

Isn't it cute! It is the Pink Lemonade Award. Now I am suppose to nominate 10 of my favorite bloggers to give this award to. Now on this I am going to fudge just a bit. I am only going to give it to a few, because I am in the process of writing another post in which I am giving out other awards. (it will be posted soon) So without further ado, my Award choices are:

1. Supermom @ Breed 'em and Weep

2. Kendrasue @ Life in the slow lane

3. Ambersmilz @ A look into the common life of an ordinary housewife...

4. Oleander @ Purge

5. Far @ My Everyday Soap (Opera!)

6. Christine @ Now What

And of course if Maki hadn't already been chosen three times I would have given it to her again! lol

I would like to take a min and thank my 11 Public followers and those of you that follow me privately....I know you are they from you comments. :-) I am REALLY trying to get back into my habit of blogging more. I hope that I do let myself down on this lol. I have such a great time when I finally get on here. The trick is to make my ass log in! Sighs...sounds like such a simple thing doesn't it?

Now I wasn't lying...I am working on a post called "And the Award Goes To...." and these are personal awards that I created, that I want to give to many bloggers I read and love. Make sure all you followers keep your eye open for that one, you might just be on it!

Until then....or sooner, who knows? :-)
