Monday Listicles

I'll Never: 10 Things You Said You'd Never Do But Have Caught Yourself Doing.

1.   Getting up at 5am for a hockey game. (As all my friends know… I do this routinely).

2.   Gain weight.  (Cry me a river, right).  I was always "that skinny girl" in school.  Now that I am in my 40's and have had three children I have some extra 15lbs I can't seem to loose.  My friends still think I am "that skinny lady".  But I cannot stand my "muffin top" hanging over my jeans.

3.  Trade my sports car in for a Mini-van!  When Brandon was baby #3, my sports car couldn't fit all the car seats.  I had no choice… .  Now that the boys are teens, I was able to get rid of the mini van and get a GMC Acadia.  It's "sporty" and yet has the room of a minivan.  You know, to put all that hockey equipment in!

4.  Take out the trash.  That's a man's job, right?  Well, he is getting better at remembering to do this.

5.   Go to church. (Lord, Please don't strike me down).  Growing up my family was not a church going family.  When I met my husband (whose parents are both pastors) I began going to church.  Surprise, surprise… I LIKED IT!  

6.   Dread having sex.  (BWHAHAHAHA!!!!).  Call me naive, but when I first began having sex, I thought it was so great.. I didn't understand why anyone would not want to have it daily.  

7.    Have credit card debt.  Since I am an impulsive person… well, this just didn't work out too well.

8.   Be depressed like my mother.  Unfortunately some things are hereditary.  Luckily I am on medication to help with it.  

9.   Never, never, ever have a man walk all over me.  I can say that I haven't let this happen, but I did have to learn to compromise.  I am lucky to have a wonderful husband! 

10.   Drink Pepsi.  Growing up my parents bought Coke and I always thought it tasted better.  In my 20's I began working in an office for KFC.  At the time KFC was owned by Pepsico.  Since Coke obviously wasn't allowed in the building, I began drinking Pepsi.  Now I am addicted my to Diet Pepsi.

  1. Cool answers!! Don't worry, you aren't fat!!

  2. What a great list. Minivan seems to be number one never say never with moms!
    I used to give people Pepsi when we were out of Coke on board and I am still amazed how many of them could tell and complained. Guess it really tastes different. Off course we had emergency landings by Costco to fetch some more Coke for them :)

    I love the look of your blog and your photos. Do you know Jessica and her blog, she linked at #45 and she is a hockey goalie?

  3. Too funny love your answers.....not sure what mine would be I would have to really think!!

    1. Hey lady! Where have you been? I am not used to you going so long without a post.
      Miss you!

  4. What a fun post! I'm thinking about doing something similar, but haven't gotten around to it yet.

    You had 3 children and only kept 15 lbs of weight? You're good!

    You asked about Christina and the baby. She's much better, her dr. visit on Friday went fine. The baby is doing good, but likes to be held a lot...but I don't mind :) Thanks for asking.

    1. Glad to hear Christina and baby are doing well!

  5. Regarding number 2 - you are still beautiful.
    Nr. 4 - I do that, too.
    Nr. 6 - Really, dread is a rather strong word. Dontcha think?

    1. Okay. I concede! Dread is rather strong of a word choice. LOL

  6. I have to giggle at some of those. I refuse to do the minivan thing, and fortunately those three rows of seats things so I can drive carpool. And you do realize how many people would love to "only" have 15 pounds, right?

  7. GREAT list. Terrific random thoughts. Love my husband's mini van, though. So much I started driving it instead of him LOL I gave up a mustang years ago. Sigh!
