I got some catching up to do.

First thing:
I've decided that my family and I deserve a vacation, and I am going to do whatever I can to make that happen. It's been about 5 years since we have been anywhere! I have been totally inspired by Stacies Madness trip to Florida that I have decided that it's time to get down there.

For what reasons?
1. I need a vacation.
2. before I am too old to do some of the things i want to do with my kids.
3. Because I want to!!!!!!

When am I going?
Good question....I already put my time off request for April 11th thru April 19th off at work. Spring Break BABY!!! If I have my way I will be celebrating Easter Sunday on some kind of Florida Theme park!! wooohooo! Wish me Luck that nothing comes between our vacation from now until then!

Secondly:
As you know that in some of my free time I enjoy me some Bingo! I have been going on and off for 20 years now and never have won any major money....until....now! On Monday I won a jackpot worth $500.00! I tell ya...as fast as I won it, it was gone! I paid back my loan shark (mom) what I owed her for the computer monitor that blew up. Then with the rest I paid my car payment so that I won't be stressed out towards the end of the month. I was so excited I yelled bingo so loud that the whole strip mall could of heard me! I had to sign a piece of paper and I could barely write! I guess it will be another 20 years before I feel that kind of excitement again.

Thirdly:

I asked to participate in a Q&A from Liz from My Blog Doesn't Suck! I just recieved my questions, they are interesting to say the least..and I thought I was getting 5 but got 7....so here it goes:

1. How much wood could a wood chuck chuck if a wood chuck could chuck would?

Well Liz, I think that would all depend on how hungry that wood chuck was. It could be anything from a twig size to the size of a whole tree, what kind of tree you may ask...maybe a redwood.

2. Why do you have a blog?

I have a blog because my mother started one, I thought it would be a good idea to have a place like a diary, or a place to vent when I needed one.. Blog therapy 101!

3. If pears could talk, what would they say?

I think they would say "give me a contract" a talking pear? I would pay to see that!

4. To bang or not to bang? (I don't mean Ricky Martin bangin')

I would bang Ricky Martin...LMAO! Not too....I have 2 kids..i don't see the point anymore..lol

5. Describe yourself in 10 words of less.

1. sweet 2. mother 3. wife 4. tired 5. overweight 6. overworked 7. hardworking 8. caring 9. curious 10. daughter.

I realize this is probably not what you had in mind...but it's my question and I will answer it the way i want..lol

6. What is a one-eyed one-horn flying purple people eater, and why is he a good friend of mine?

It is something you conjure up after a bad acid trip..lol and he is a good friend because that means your f***ed up...lol

7. Pickles. Explain.

Not sure about this question at all.
Do I like pickles? Sure.....To explain why i like pickles, I would have to explain why I like to eat at all! I just do..lol

Anyone wishing to participate must follow the directions below.

1. Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me."
2. I will respond by emailing you five questions. I get to pick the questions.
3. You will update your blog with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

That wasn't so bad and I actually had fun doing it. Thanks Liz!

Well, I think I am all caught up now...Goodnight

Yes - take a deserved vacation! Especially now that your kids are getting older because soon they will be out of the house - and those days of "family vacations" will be over. (not to get all pessimistic or gloomy, but its the truth).

And yes - Interview me (i've seen this a few times and need some blogging fodder)
