Out of the Norm

I don't usually post twice in one day, and I don't usually do tagged questionaires. However, I happen to have tonight off, my kids happen to be outside tearing up the neighborhood, and The Man happens to be MIA due to college football, so....

One of my newer followers, Beemii, happens to be a newer blogger and she participates weekly in Post-It Note Tuesday, so I thought I would oblige her by answering her 8 Questions in the meme she tagged me in...

1.What is the one thing you complain about constantly?
The constant state of disarray in which I find my house.
2. What do you love about being a Mom?
I love watching my kids be successful at something, I love to hear them laugh, I love when they get along, I love when they snuggle with me, and I love when they're not causing me to be frustrated.
3. Do you have any animals? How many?
I have 5 animals.
I have 3 cats - Toby, Fat Louie, and Sasha.
I have a 3-legged dingo... Actually, she's an Australian Shepherd/Blue Heeler cross.  Her name is Neesa.
AND, I have by beloved Great Dane, Natty.
4. Where are you from?
I was raised in a suburb of Minneapolis.  I currently live in another Minneapolis suburb.
5. Favorite Movie of all time?
I always say that my all-time favorite movie is Wayne's World, because it it AMAZING...
But really, I love Love Actually and Secondhand Lions the most!
6. Favorite Book of all time?
My all time favorite book is The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.
7. What do you not like about being a mom?
This is a toughie.  While I wouldn't trade my monsters for anything, I am often really overwhelmed by them.  It has been just me and them for almost 10 years.  Between their sibling rivalry and The Girl's special needs, I often long for a bit of time to myself.  There is something to be said for peeing in peace, showering without interruption, and not waking in the middle of the night with a knee in my back.
8. Favorite Song of all time?
Tupelo Honey by Van Morrison
Greatest. Song. Ever.
I want to thank Beemii for thinking of me.  I encourage you to hop over and check her out.
I am not going to tag 8 people in this post, but I am going to ask that if you have an extra minute or two, you click HERE and answer a quick demographic survey I have put together to learn more about YOU!

Picking just one movie would be tough for me. Like seriously I don't think I could do it.

Books...same thing. TOUGH!

But...there is definitely something to be said for peeing alone! I don't think I will have that luxury for at least another 18 years. Do you realize that is 36 years without peaceful bathroom privileges? THAT. IS. NOT. RIGHT!
