BYOC - Bring Your Own Crazy!

BYOC – Bring Your Own Crazy – 5 questions you can copy and paste to your own blog if you so desire – in an effort to get to know your fellow bloggers better and to give your blog brain a break!


1. I have to do some MAJOR cleaning on Monday…which is prompting me to ask…what is the absolute worst thing you hate to clean or cleaning chore you hate the most? (vacuuming, dusting, laundry, toilets, floors, etc.)

It's a toss up between dusting and the bathroom floor. I guess if I didn't have about a million 'treasures' all over the walls and crammed into every shelf (Ryan loves my decorating by the way) then I probably wouldn't hate dusting.  And really, my bathroom is the size of the pooper on an airplane, so I shouldn't be bitching about that either.  I think I just plain hate cleaning. Period. Think I could talk Ryan into hiring a cleaning service?

2. Brown or Black? Fly or Drive? Hot dog or Burger? Gold or Silver?

I would say both.  I wear a lot of brown. But I like black in winter.

Fly. You can sleep on the plane. Duh.

Burger. With Jalapenos, bacon, pepperjack cheese, and ranch dressing. Yummertons!

Silver. Always.

3. Repeat question: I’m going to pick a person not knowing your relationship with them or even if a relationships exists – and you then try to describe that person in 5 short sentences/words.

Maternal Grandmother

Football helmet shaped white hairdo
A smidgen ditzy but the sweetest person
Cooked the best breakfast
Itty Bitty Tiny lady.

4. Even if you don’t have kids, how do you feel about kids in multiple sports during their school years?  Were you in MULTIPLE sports all during school?  Forced or by choice?

I played basketball, volleyball, and track....against my Junior High. To say I'm not that coordinated is a HUGE understatement. Then in High School I played Tennis only because that was the sport that you ran the least amount in (just a jog around the block in practice and you were done). I'm lazy, OK. So I'm not a huge sports person. I take that back, I love to watch football and basketball, but playing is a whole nother thing.

That being said, my husband, Mr. Coordinated Athletic Pants Ryan, played every sport he could get his hands on. Baseball when he was younger, football also, and of course basketball.  He's a slightly tall fella (6'4"....ya, I like-a my guy tall), so playing basketball was pretty much a give-in. 

We have no kids yet, but we've talked about what sports they'll play and when. If Ryan had his choice, I'm pretty sure our kid would be the All Star of every sport ever invented.  But, I think that the kid should chose what he/she wants to play.  Yes, I think they need to try sports, and will push for him/her to do that. But I will never FORCE them to play more than one year/season at a sport they don't like. And if they want to play 8 different sports at the same time, and it doesn't effect their school work, then I'll do everything in my power to make it happen.

However, I don't think I'll have that problem of making them 'try' different sports. I'm pretty sure our kids will come into this world holding a basketball/football/tennis racket/baseball glove/etc. or all of the above, and be ready to hit the field or court running.

5. Repeat question: Summarize your week in real life and in blog land.

Blogland has been freaking great! Slim Cat came back! Thank the lord. Draz has NUSSING to say really. lol. Miss Dawnya's going to be the next running queen bee! And tons of other bloggies that I've been keeping up with. Gosh, there's just so much going on!

Reallife has been semi-good. I was an iiiiitty bit hungover on Sunday and part of Monday, so that hampered my ability to function normally.  I only ran and worked out ONCE this week.  That's weak. But, life happens. 

I'm going to Fort Worth, TX this weekend to get my shopping/drinking/friend time on. We are driving down with some friends that I haven't gotten to hang with hardly at all this year so I'm pumped to catch up. 

Another big one: I'm signing up for another 5K on Monday! YIPPEE!  It's about 7 weeks away, Oct 1st to be exact.  AND!!!! They give you a beer and a brat at the end of the race!. Can you say BONUS! Training starts on Monday and I'm doing a 5K training plan listed on their website, by Sweat365. I'm excited. It requires running 3 days a week and I'm going to do Tues and Thurs along with it.  I'm also revamping (I know, I know, AGAIN) the diet, trying to eat a little cleaner and healthier. Especially while out of town and on vacation.

Oh, bummer in reallife: work sucks. Printer's broken. Again. Work SUCKS. That's all I have to say about that.

All in all, busy little unicorn here.   I'll try to post some great pics of TX this weekend!!
 Everyone have fun and don't do anything I wouldn't do! Hehehe.
