10 Things You Need To Know About Jane

10. You may not have a need to know these things but these are 10 things about me that I feel are share-worthy.

9.   I’m good at wasting list-space by rambling about things that probably don’t need an explanation.

8.   Currently, I am sporting an adorable chipped tooth look. The front one. Yep. Adorable. (I wonder if there are any Beverly Hillbilly sequel auditions nearby?)

7.   I have that annoying habit of providing way too much information when you ask me a simple question. You know the type. Giving much more background info than is necessary. I even annoy myself.

6.   My parents gave me the delightful nicknames of “Chatterbox” and “Dumbo” while I was growing up. Yes, I talk too much and yes, my ears stuck out. (I wouldn’t know because now I hide them behind my hair.) Isn’t that sweet? (No wonder I have such self-esteem issues.)

5.   I am a Mama-Bear to the nth degree. At least, that’s what my husband says.

4.   I used to have champagne tastes on a beer budget. Now, I have champagne tastes on a decent bottle of wine budget. Do you think that when I catch up to the champagne budget my tastes will morph into a glass of  1997 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti? It goes for about $1500 a bottle. A bottle! I don’t know about you, but I’d be sick to my stomach after drinking a house payment.

3.   Who am I kidding? I’d be sick to my stomach after drinking an entire bottle of wine. Of any variety. I am a lightweight. One and a half glasses is my limit.

2. But give me a 32oz. tub of coke and I’ll polish it off like nobody’s business. Maybe I do need Mayor Bloomberg looking over my shoulder.

1. If you ask me, point blank, if you’ve offended me? No matter how non-confrontational I am, I will tell you the truth. I will. That’s just how I am. And how much I value my friendships. And there’s not much that truly offends me since I love a great debate and seeing things differently and having my values agitated a little. So, lighten up. Relax. I won’t bite.

!!! Is All About The Blog

This week is the anniversary of my blogging days and I’m all about celebrating. (Don’t forget about tomorrow, people!) I still wanted to participate in Bad Mommy Moments and Momalom’s Intentional Happiness !!! project. And then I remembered…

My handy, dandy little notebook where (when I remember it’s in my purse) I jot down post ideas or phrases my kids have said or husband witticisms…

And then there’s the funny, fun doodles by my kids that surprise me when I open up my handy, dandy notebook that always give me a giggle or at least a smile…

I love my Mickey Mouse pen…

I have a lot of Mickey Mouse pens. I have no idea how many I have. I just know they bring me !!! Here are a couple more I found at the bottom of my purse….

I even have my boys hooked on Disney…

Blogging. Right. Back to blogging. My Coca Cola mouse pad brings a smile and makes me thirsty for my favorite drink (never diet). Classic Coke. Elixir of the gods…

Even my old dinosaur of a computer brings me !!! Especially when I’m sitting here, crafting posts for all of my blogging friends…

And then my eye is drawn to my dear pal, Mickey Mouse, hanging out on the futon. Have I mentioned that I love Walt Disney and all of his creations?…

Focus, Jane, focus. We’re talking blogging here, not Walt Disney World. (Sorry, peeps. But I have a secret trip planned for my kids and I am having a heck of a time keeping it a secret. It’s been Disney on the brain ever since I figured out a way to go.) Maybe if I move him over here, closer to the computer, I can concentrate better. There. That’s perfect….

(Sigh. I’m so excited. I can’t wait to go.)

For more !!! go to Momalom or Bad Mommy Moments.

Don’t forget! Write your post about blogging to help me celebrate my one year in Blog World. We’ll all meet back here tomorrow (August 13) !!! to link, learn and maybe have a few laughs!
