A meme and some other stuff!!!

The sweet Michelle over at "Big Blueberry Eyes" tagged me for this one and it's been so long since I've done a meme, I am actually excited.

What's in a name?

1. You have to post these rules before you give the facts.
2. Players, you must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of your middle name. If you don’t have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had.
3. When you are tagged you need to write your own blog-post containing your own middle name game facts.
4. At the end of your blog-post, you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

For the facts:
C = Cooking fanatic
L = Love to read, anything actually, but especially if you couldn't tell LOL
A = Air Force Wife and extremely proud of it
U = Understanding and Loyal
D = Definitely a daddy's girl, must be cause I'm the only girl amongst 3 boys.
I = I'm still on the spiritual journey to a closer relationship with God
A = Always looking for ways to better myself

For the tag:
C = Crochet the Blues Away
L = Life is a Journey
A = A Good Cup of Coffee
U = Unexpected Journey
D = Denise at The Knitting Den
I = I'm an Organizing Junkie
A = Air Force Family

It's 7:30 am and I'm exhausted, yeah you read that right, I just got out of bed and I might as well not even laid down last night......Nicholas is now sick with the cold and he's cranky, running a fever and congested, so we were up all night.

Being the lazy mom that I am, I kicked hubby out of bed so he could get some good sleep (see I'm not that mean lol), brought Nicholas into bed with me and called it good.

I'm thinking the one pot of coffee I have ready will be my savior today or else I will be falling asleep on the computer, while doing laundry or in a corner of the house somewhere.

You know what I hate???? BUGS, creeply crawlies of any kind just give me the willies and unfortunately being in Arizona we're surrounded by them. I have the biggest cockroaches on earth, you could seriously ride these buggers, that's how big they are. Then the other night I went to the parent/teacher night and Curt watched the kids.....I get back and the kiddos tell me that we have a new family member......a orange and white lizard. WHAT?!?!?!?!?!?!?

They're all going about their business like nothing is wrong and I'm standing there literally grossed out and getting the shivers just thinking that I'm sharing my house with black tiny little bugs, ants, elephant sized cockroaches and now a lizard. This is NOT a wild life conservation, we may get a little out of hand at times and the kids do act like animals on certain days but COME ON........I'm just waiting for one of these bugs to look up at me and say "hello". LOL

Right now I'm making some of Barb's Breakfast Burritos, she once said that I probably make them more than her and I think she may be right. I use these not just for breakfast but for lunch or a light dinner, I just LOVE them.

Curt is working weird hours this week, he has to be up at 3:30am which is just awful for him, he doesn't get that much sleep but thankfully next week it's back to the normal hours. He's also told me that here soon he will be spending most of his saturday night's at the Phoenix Cardinal Stadium, his squadron sells beer there during the games. Funny thing is he's NOT a sports guy at all, he doesn't enjoy football or baseball or anything and I think he only watches the Soccer World Cup because I DO. LOL
So anyway that is what is going on for him right now.

Jasmine is doing great in school, she's loving the teacher and her classmates. She's disappointed because this school has NO field trips. It's sad, I mean don't we all love field trips??? But anyway being in third grade they'll be doing Science and Social Studies etc, so she's excited for the hands on science class. Me not so much just cause I know she'll be filthy by the time she gets home......but hey, it's worth it if they have fun while learning right???

Nicholas as you all know is sick and being cranky and whiny, but he cracks us up with the things he says and does, he's just at that funny age.

Anyway, I finished my English Garden Series by Lori Wick and I'm sad in a way, I was really enjoying the books. I've started the Tucker Mills Trilogy though and I have to say I'm not into it that much, but I'll keep at it and I am sure I'll start enjoying it.

I also got some movies from Netflix today, got 28 Days Later and The Illusionist, both I've been dying to see.

Oh speaking of seeing, you know what I'm completely addicted to??? Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern, I mean, it's certainly not for the faint of heart, but I find it so fascinating and I love him, there's something about the way he explains things and takes us on his travels that I really enjoy. Of course the minute he starts chugging down thousand year old eggs, worms and frog hearts that are STILL beating........that's when I close my eyes or turn away.

Well I best get back to my burrito making. You all have a wonderful friday, I'll be back tomorrow with the Five Senses Saturday.

God Bless,


  1. Thanks for the update! Have a wonderful weekend.

  2. Hope the sick child recovers quickly and Mom can get rest!

    I also hope you'll enjoy 'The Illusionist.' We did.

    'The English Garden' series... I'll have to look that up. It sounds delicious. :-)


  3. i hope Nicholas feels better real soon!

    And I hope you get some better rest tonight!
    Have a Wonderful weekend !

  4. Sick little boys are never fun for anyone involved! What weird hours your husband is working! Military life is never dull or predictable - I never quite know what Daniel is going to come home and tell he has to do next. I think that whoever hands this stuff down sometimes forgets that there are families involved.

    The bugs....I can't handle bugs. We don't co-exist.

    Hope you have a nice weekend and your little man gets better quick.


  5. Poor Nicholas! I hope he gets feeling better asap. Just so ya know your not the only lazy mommy. I do the exact same thing when the kids are sick LOL! I'm with ya on the bugs. I hate them. I mean really hate them!!!
    Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Enjoy it!

  6. Sorry to hear that Nicholas is sick. It is hard on a Mom, both physically and mentally when your kids aren't feeling themselves!
    I copied the breakfast burrito recipe and plan to try it to. Sounds great!

  7. Yum, now I'm craving breakfast burrito's.

    3:30 a.m.? That should just not even be allowed. Yuck. I don't know how he does it, Sandra. My body clock would be so out of whack I wouldn't know whether I was coming or going. Hats off to him.

    Hope your boy is feeling better soon!

  8. Well you had more comments than me today...LOL! I love those breakfast burritos too es during the holidays...very easy and her dinner ones are just as good....have a good weekend friend!

  9. Well now we know your middle name! LOL And you did a great job with this meme. I'm lucky if I ever do this one. My middle name is Ann. SHORT! LOL

    Bugs. Oh my word, I can stand anything but cockroaches. I know the ones you're talking about - I grew up with them in SE Texas and they are completely gross. I used to just cringe when my Dad would stomp one because you might as well stomp a small dog or something, they're so big.

    I deal with some very different bugs. We have hornets out here in western Colorado so bad they're almost a plague. Those I hate and I kill. Normally, I don't kill bugs but just gently relocate them. Hornets, I go after with a vengeance because the very thought of one of them stinging Cameron almost stops my heart.

    We also have praying mantises and those big green bugs that look exactly like a leaf. I don't know what they're called. And rolly pollies. So bugwise, I'm lucky, compared to you. :-)

    I love this post - just a great catch-up post. Hope you have a really nice weekend and I really hope your little boy gets better soon. Those nights don't sound like much fun, at all.

  10. Thanks for playing along! You had some great answers too!

    I hate bugs too - and we get those big cockroaches here in NM as well; can't stand them!

  11. Thanks for your burger tips. I could eat a new burger everyday for weeks!

    I hope everyone gets some rest soon in your family!

  12. These tag is funy.I never saw one like that.
    About your husband and sports: it's so hard to find a man that doesn't like it. I was amazed that your doesn't like. Mine either but I thought he was the only one - he was the only one I knew, now there are two.

  13. Great job on the meme!! It was fun to read!!

    So sorry your son is sick, I sure hope he gets better soon and everyone else stays healthy.... and I hope you can get rid of the pests. I don't know if I could stand it!!!!

  14. I hope your son is better so soon. I stumbled upon your blog and I love it :-)

  15. Hey Sandra! Thank you for the meme tag. I've posted mine, so check it out when you get a chance. I enjoyed reading yours.

    That's terrible that Nicholas is sick. I'll be praying that he gets better and that the rest of you don't get what he has.

    Yuck! I hate bugs in my house. I don't mind them in a display at a museum or zoo, but not in my house.

    I'm sure we'll be experiencing those weird work hours once Steve is done with school. Hope Curt gets some sleep. Steve is not much into watching sports, but he does watch the Soccer World Cup with me too, because I love it!

    That's great that Jasmine is doing great in school and liking her teachers as well. Too bad there are no field trips though.

    Hope you start enjoying your new trilogy. Did I tell you I received the book you sent me? It's great so far.

    I haven't seen 28 Days Later, but I have seen The Illusionist and I liked it!

    Enjoy those burritos!


  16. Hi Sandra,
    I just saw you tagged me for this one. Very cute, I'll try to do it although my middle name is really short with only 4 letters!
