199th Post

Okay so I'm going to steal from all the great bloggers I know (Tara, Maria, Huckdoll, etc.) and say, bring on the questions! What do you want to know about me? I don't have nearly the readership levels of those greats, so please, ask multiple questions :)

The 200th post will take a while to get up. As has been the norm lately, I don't suspect I'll have much time soon for my virtual life!

The temp didn't work out so I have to start over on Monday with a new one. The big move is scheduled for next Saturday, and there's still plenty to do. Although I do feel I am in fairly good shape with things so that's good.

I took the past few nights off, though. On Wed., my sister and I went to the Hollywood Bowl (a bday present from the folks) to see Manhattan Transfer and Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, and had a great time. Didn't make it home until almost midnight, though, and dragged my feet through most of Thursday. Tonight the girls and my parents and I went to the Disney Concert Hall for a Broadway sing-along and had a really great time. Although it wasn't in the Concert Hall, but their rehearsal hall. Sylvia got to sing on the mic for "You Can't Stop the Beat" from Hairspray. She did me proud ;)

She's been asked to join the swim team at the Boys & Girls Club and is very excited about that. I met her swim instructor today, and absolutely love her!

The bad news is that Sylvia has an eye infection. I had to take her to urgent care today. It's not too bad, so I think we caught it in time and won't be too terrible. I hope so anyway.

Riley's taking swim classes and loving it. My sister pointed out that she's looking much more grown up these days. I can no longer pick her up and carry her to her bed when she falls asleep early in the living room. (She's been awfully tired at night from all the activities at the Boys & Girls Club.) I miss it, sort of, but am proud of the young girl she's becoming.

This, it seems, has turned into an early weekend wrap-up. Although I'm not sure who is even around to read it with everyone off at BlogHer!

Bring on those questions! And thanks to all of those who are being so patient with me and my lackadaisical posting and commenting.

So.... What do you really think of George Bush? Who are you voting for?

Lol just kidding.

I'm sorry to hear the temp didn't work out. That must be a real pain. If it makes you feel any better, Mark's job today (yes, he has to work a lot of Saturdays lately) is pulling dead and decomposed pets out of a condemned apartment building so they can begin renovations. Yuck! It really makes me mad that they leave these animals in there when they evict the people. Why doesn't the city have Animal Control come in and remove them? It's horrible and inhumane.

Now, for my real question:
Do you think it would be easier to have boys, or are you feeling luckier with girls? Just curious.

Since you are such a fan of musicals, if your life story was made into a musical, what would it be called and what songs would be on the soundtrack?

Congrats on your 200th!

What jobs / professions do you THINK your girls might be good at, when they're older. (And I know - we all want them to be happy and blah, blah - just play along! :)
How do you picture your life in 15 years? (Which is lame but I like seeing the answers, anyway!)

Ummm, I think what you're doing is called "Balance"...kinda sound a tad familiar?? :) (It's a GOOD thing!)

If you were given $1 million dollars tomorrow, what would you do with it?

If you could legitimately kill your ex-husband and know you wouldn't get caught, could/would you do it? just asking, jeez! :)

Hairspray singalong? I am so totally jealous.

I'm not sure how I got here, but since you want to answer, I've got a question:

Do YOU believe in regret? Is there 1 thing that you've done that you can say you regret?

Single Mom Seeking was a very good read, but I may just blog about it later, so you can get the full review.

K, I'll stop now.

What is your favorite place/space in your home or outside of it?

If you had only one thing you could say or piece of advice you could pass on to your girls what would it be?

Name one thing that no matter how many times you see it, hear it, or feel it you laugh uncontrollably? Full belly, liquid out of the nose, can't stop laughing!

My question is...

What does a guy have to do to get into your pants?

Speaking of lackadaisical commenting... it seems I'm a little late to the party.

No questions... just saying HI.
