Years ago, we had some super fun neighbors that we were close with and we ADORED their children. Their youngest son felt totally and completely comfortable just walking in the front door, getting something to eat, or finding something to do. I think he might have been 3 or 4.
One day, he came in and went into the office to talk to Splenda Daddy. Next thing you know, he's asking Splenda if he likes what he (the little boy) likes while absentmindedly slipping his hand in Splenda's sleeve to touch his arm. We STILL laugh over that scene. It was so odd, out of place and it kinda surprised us both.
Now, our inside joke at home is...."Do you like what I like?"
PS - I really hate cats, even though I am called mCat. But I do think a laughing cat is funny. As long as I don't have to live with it.
And today, is our first edition on the ole blog......
My bed. Totally have the best bed of all time. Cal-king, tempurpedic, heavy blankets and comforter. Nice and tall, so much so that the dogs have to have their own stairs to get up. (yes I am one of those people) I have a hard time getting out of it once I am in. My bed freakin rocks.
A paid for home. Serio - best feeling ever. No mortgage. I can't claim any credit for this, it's all Splenda Daddy's wise and fiscal responsibility. But the feeling that if the whole economy were to collapse, I have a roof over my head is comfort indeed.
Food that I don't have to prepare. I have to be the laziest person when it comes to food. I want it fast, ready and good. I hate cooking or putting any kind of time or effort into concocting something good to eat. I enjoy a good driveup where I can yell my order through some garbled box, or a nice place where I sit down and people bring me my food. Heck, I'm even good for a spicy dog that's been on the rollers for hours at the sev! Just so I don't have to think it up, or make it. Makes it problematic when we buy groceries. Splenda wants to buy things we can make meals with (normal) and I want to just buy crap I can snack on without any kind of prep (not normal). What's really scaring me is that Splenda mentioned that perhaps we should start growing some of our own food. I have two words for that...... CA - RAP!
Shoes. I am such a girl shoe. I wish I had 15 different pair of running shoes. I wish I had 10 different pair of boots. Maybe 8 pair of different black dressy shoes. Several pair of flip flops....you get the idea. I like shoes. Mucho!
Product. In fact, you could say I'm kind of a product whore. If there is a new mascara, or shampoo, or lotion, or perfume, or fancy gadget of some kind, I am ALL OVER IT! New kind of hair goop? Check. New improved mouthwash? Check. New style of jeans or sweaters? A new fad? Check and Check!
Happy people. I just like to be around happy people. Whiners, murmurers, complainers, fault finders, I have no need for. Listen guys, people in general have enough downers in their lives, that we don't need to go adding to it. Be happy or get good at faking it. If nothing else, STOP WHINING AND COMPLAINING. 'Cause that totally helps right?
My Kindle Fire. A total surprise from Splenda Daddy and I.Am.Loving.It! I downloaded some games that Chloee can play on it. I'm kinda addicted playing around with it. It rocks. Fo shizzle.
When Jace comes to play. Totally occupies Jack and helps to release his energy. 'nuff said.
In less than 24 hours, I will be in SoCal. I like that Splenda lets me spend the money to go. I like that the kids let me stay and play with them. I like that I get to snuggle Chloee, and play barn, and hide in the closet, and play at her park. Good times. I like it!
Sunday nights. We usually get the kids for dinner and then movie night. I like tradition. I like routine when it comes to my family. I like all my lil chickens gathered together. If only 2 years and 8 months would pass by quickly. Then I have them all.
Retirement. Okay, sorta retirement since I'm working the gig at Wasatch Running. But that is part time. The rest of my days are filled with stuff I want to do. Gym, hot baths, reading, sleeping, sometimes lunch with besties......stuff I want to do with people that are genuine friends whom I love. So NOT overrated at all!
I like my diet brown bubbles. Every day. Someone asked me last week if I had a certain "drink". Not really. It just has to be diet, brown, and bubbly. If it's coke or pepsi, then I'll add some vanilla. Other than that, I am just a DBB girl.
So there's the first of hopefully many "I like ...." lists.
Do you like what I like?
