And now for something completely different….


I have been asked to answer some probing questions by blogging friend, AlyGatr. Now, as I have mentioned, I am home full-time with the staff this summer. Thus the inspiration behind Are You Game? Giveaway. And not only am I running out of ideas how to entertain them. (You still have till Wednesday to save me — I mean, email your entry.) I am completely at a loss, how to get everything done — including writing.

So, I have to answer my questions in installments. Also, any tips how the rest of you are able to write, craft, cook and enrich your children — are more than welcome. Here we go the clock is ticking…

What is your current obsession?

Blogging. Making it through the summer with staff without the house being condemned or the TV burning out. Hey, did I mention I was having a contest?

What are you wearing today?

Black exercise pants, gray t-shirt and baseball cap. Gym teacher chic — except I don’t exercise.

What’s for dinner?

When I finish cleaning up last night’s dinner, I’ll figure it out.

What would you eat for your last meal?

Anything I don’t have to cook myself or clean up after either.

What’s the last thing you bought?

A bubble maker, a pink jump rope and model airplane this morning while two staffers were in soccer camp. Did I mention I’m looking for things to keep them busy? I’m having this contest you see…

What are you listening to right now?

Clifford the Big Red Dog (Come on just a little TV and it’s PBS and Clifford teaches such great values — all right clock is ticking…)

What is your favorite ice-cream flavor?

Peach, but it has to have pieces of peach in it.

What do you think of the person who tagged you?

A huge fan! My muse. My inspiration. My jeweler.

If you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where would you like it to be?

A villa on the Amalfi Coast of Italy. My old boss went there, “Oh, you just haaave to go!” She gave me her travel book for when I went. I never used the book, but I looked at the pictures a lot — that was 11 years ago.

If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go?

New York and give my old Boss her book back.

Which language do you want to learn?

I’m still mastering English. My father corrected me yesterday. He said, “Whose this piece of cake for?” I said, “Me and the baby.” He said, “The baby and I.” I think I might of been right. Feel free to weigh in. I can correct him when I call him on Father’s Day.

What’s your favorite quote (for now)?

Cleaning with kids is like shoveling during a snowstorm — Phyllis Diller

OK, Clifford is over. Calliou is coming on and I draw the line at Calliou. I’ve got some shovelling to do.

An once, again tips are appreciated.

    I fully believe in spreading the love as far as these questionnaires go! In installments works :)Ah…keeping the troops entertained…I'm struggling with this one too. I'm losing points on the entertainment meter and have to pour over the family finances to find some spare dinero so I can send them to school a couple of days per week. They are so in need of stimulation outside of the home and away from me.As for how to do it all..well, I'm up at 5 am, to bed at 10 pm and running around like a crazy person in between. Luckily for me, I have two good sleepers and can get some time to do things in the mornings before they wake up.
