1.Whats your favorite day of the week?
Wednesday. I don't know why, but it has always been my favorite!

2.Are you an early bird or a night owl?
Early bird although I haven't done a good job of getting to bed as of late, so I haven't really wanted to be! Unfortunately sleeping in for me is 7 am; no matter what i am up by 7 am (usually earlier).

3.What is your favorite hobby, other than blogging?
I love scrapbooking, but I never have time to do it.  Is it a hobby if you never do it? I also enjoy planning fun things to do with my kids.

4.What is one of your healthy habits?
 I work out most weeks, and I really do try to eat fairly healthy.  Really I am not too good at the healthy stuff, and I have been blessed by a decent metabolism that keeps me from being 500 lbs.

5.What is one of your bad habits you'd like to kick?
Dependence on caffeine.  I really need to get back in the habit of drinking more water and less Pepsi.

6.Do you have a favorite season?
Summer.  I loved this past summer when it was hot and we had hardly any rain.  I love sunshine and warm weather!

7.What do you blog about?
My crazy kids and the fun things we do.  Occasionally recipes or more grown-up crafts or organizing ideas. 

8.What is your favorite childhood memory?
I don't remember much of my childhood; I blame getting hit by a van in high school for this.  It isn't a specific memory, but my kitty, Marbles, was a very important part.

9.Do you have road rage?
Usually no, but if I am in a particularly bad mood I can.

10.Do you enjoy cooking? If so whats your favorite recipe?
No.  I like food, but I don't enjoy cooking.  I do enjoy baking especially yummy, sweet things.

11.How many blog post do you get out  week?
I try for 5.  Sometimes it is more, sometimes it is less.  

11 Random things about me:

1: I may be shy, but that doesn't mean I don't have an opinion.
2: I like doing laundry.
3: I detest cold weather.
4: I eat chocolate every day!
5: I am not into fashion or makeup or other girly things.
6: Most people are convinced my camera is an appendage.
7: Being organized is hard for me, so I am constantly on a quest to become more organized.
8: I remember the names of people's pets better then those of the people.  
9: I sometimes feel like a genius if I get those captcha verification things right!
10: I love color! Lots of color!
11: I can pick things up with my toes; I call them my monkey toes.

To everyone with a little blog; you are important to someone! Keep up the good work!
