6 things about moi.

I was tagged! So finally here it goes:

1. I held the title of Maryland State Rabbit Judge Champion, Jr. Division
Oh yeah! I was a 4-H'er, and raised New Zealand White rabbits. I also excelled at rabbit judging...I still can remember breed standards.

2. I used to be an on-air News Anchor
I love this little clipping. I look so young and spry! Yes, I brought "complete coverage of today's events". I loved this job, and loved working in television. I went on to work at Maryland Public Television, and then got into Corporate Communications and then Agency work.

3. I have my motorcycle license.......
Although I haven't ridden in years....I did learn how to ride for a show about Harley Davidson and Sturgiss. I rode from Milwauki, Wisconsin to Sturgis South Dakota... During this trip, I encouraged many women to get off the back of some guy's bike, and get one of their own, through my example. That was the best!

4. I mashed cake at my wedding.
And I would do it again.

5.
If I was stranded on a deserted island and I could only have one food....it would be spaghetti.

6. I know how to drive cars fast, but am better at making tv shows about fast cars.....
Now off to do laundry!...If you haven't been tagged, I tag YOU! Still waiting for Scott's post.....

The "Burglar Phase"

Mommy! What was THAT noise????? Mommy! I heard the door open!!!!! Mommy! I thought I saw someone downstairs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ah yes, the burglar phase...a period of time when your otherwise very confident child turns into a paranoid security advisor.

Victor went through this...and being my first child, I went through a bunch of crazy self examination....am I giving him enough attention? Does he feel like he's responsible for his safety b/c no one else is? What can I do to make him more comfortable in our home? Is this an indicator that he doesn't feel safe in his world? Maybe I need to really monitor his PBS shows to see if that is causing it...sometimes "Arthur" can be a bit risque. HAS HE ALREADY BEEN THE VICTIM OF A CRIME THAT I DON'T KNOW ABOUT???!!!!##!

Whew.
I'm exhausted after remembering that. With lovely child #2, THANK GOD I realize this is a phase...this too shall pass, and everything is OK. I'm even tempted to ask her if she's checked her closet and looked under her bed...after all, monsters aren't stopped by locks.

I HATE when that happens!



A picture is worth a thousand (curse) words.



My solution to pollution.



Hmmm. It wasn't really her fault. She always has to pee at 3 AM...no matter what time I take her out before. She does this pee pee dance where she runs the length of my bedroom and back...over and over. Needless to say, I rolled over and put the pillow over my head.
***notice the Snickers bar wrapper tucked under her armpit.

There's a New Kid in Town



The Peters family welcomes "Putin", our new kitty!!!!! Ok, so first of all, I AM NOT responsible for the name....my husband is. I tried to tell him that in the South, Putin or "pootin'" means so much more than the Russian leader....

He's a very sweet, playful one year old. We are hoping he lives to be 100!
Canoe was happy....June is ok....Putin says, talk to the paw.

Wishing for cool weather!!!

video

I can't wait for those days with temps in the 70's...the kind where you can take a long walk and not need a respirator, CPR or ice!

BTW...do you know how hard it is to shoot and walk at the same time? We won't even talk about driving and shooting!
