Toe Tagged and Quick Reboot Update

Quick update:  Down 26 pounds and feeling good!  Missing food but it's not bad most of the time.  Today is day 6.  4 more to go! 

(Too funny!  A toe tag picture and an update on the Reboot.  I'm so easily amused.)

Cyn over at Misadventures of a Chunky Goddess tagged me.  Toe tagged me as a matter of fact.  Cyn is absolutely fantastic.  She’s inspirational and tells it like it is.  Just the kind of person I like.   I know, these things are dumb but I dig them. 

Here are the rules:
1. Post these rules.
2. You must post 11 random things yourself.
3. Answer the ques­tions the tag­ger set for you in their post.
4. Cre­ate 11 new ques­tions for the peo­ple you tag to answer.
5. Go to their blog and tell them that you've tagged them.
6. No stuff in the tag­ging sec­tion about ‘you are tagged if you are read­ing this.’ blah blah blah, you legit­i­mately have to tag 11 peeps!

random things about me:
1.  I’m the baby.  Yep, the 3rd child.  Most of my personality is 1st child personality though, except for my need to be taken care of.  I can take care of me, but I want someone else to do it! lol
2.  My doctor uses the phrase “random weirdness” when he can’t explain why something is happening to me.  For instance, my toe lost all feeling for no medical reason for about 2 months.
3.  I will start the laundry and fold the laundry but don’t ask me to switch it or put it away.
4.  I dream of Sven.  Sven is a Swedish masseuse who is mute and ripped.  Yep, sexist as hell, isn’t it?
5.  I’m a Scorpio on the cusp of Libra.  I’ve only been able to maintain a friendship with one Libra my whole life. 
6.  My grandmother, mother, aunt, and I are all writers.  Only my grandmother has been published. 
7.  I am a control freak.
8.  I am also a germophobe.  Yep, one of those crazy people who asks people who are sick to go away (or I go away myself).  Germs post
9.  I get annoyed when people follow my blog just to get me to follow theirs.  If you don’t like what I have to say, don’t follow.  Also irritating is the comment “I am now following you, please follow me”.  I’d rather have 10 people that actually read my blog than 100 followers who don’t.
10. I worship my sleep.  I get very upset when people interrupt it for no reason.  Grrrrrrr.
11.  My favorite holiday is Samhain.

The 11 folks I’m going to make think are:
1.   Christina from Simply Christina
2.   Steph from Good Girl Gone Green
3.   KerrieLynn from KL's Cupboard
4.   Rachel from Because I Have To
5.   Sarah from Spinach Leaves and Sugar Snap Peas
6.   Jennie from Snapdragon Diaries
7.   Angela from The Pagan Mom Blog
8.   Olivia from This 'N That With Olivia
9.   Mom of the Fab 4 from Life With Four Crazy Kids
10. Jenn from Misadventures In Motherhood
11. Julie from A Day In The Wife

11 Questions from Cyn:
1.   what is your middle name & the story behind it?
My middle name is Amanda.  My name was supposed to be Amanda Susan but my dad put his hand over my mom’s mouth and said “Susan Amanda” when asked for the name for the birth certificate.  Thank you Daddy!

2.   what is the best concert/show you have ever been to?
Hands down, Savatage’s Dead Winter Dead Tour in New England.  It was fantastic!

  1. Down 26 pounds, eh? Of course, you know that means we're walking around the corner or across Alderwood, tomorrow...right? Of course, you should not let me push you if it's not time. I trust you to tell me to "shove it where the sun don't shine" if necessary, and I'll still love you.

  2. thank you so much for playing along! i smiled the whole time i was reading!!! love it & i love that your butter is melted by bob!!!

    26 lbs is just amazing -- you are rockin' it sweets!

    keep being you & doing what you do!!!!

  3. Morgan,
    Damn right we're walking across Alderwood! lol Sometimes I need a push because I tend to be (wait for it and try not to laugh) timid about stuff like this. All right, pick yourself up, it wasn't that funny! LOL Just being a goof. See you tonight in the wonderful cold snow :)

    How can ones butter not be melted by Bob? ;)

  4. Hehe... thanks for the tag! I must apologize for the fact that I'm probably not going to have the chance to do all the lovely facts and stuff and pass on the tags... as fun as all that is. I recently photographed an engineering conference and am neck-deep in pictures of dorky guys with bad skin and glasses (don't take that the wrong way--I married one of them, so I mean that in the nicest way possible).

    I think I still have another 400 pics to edit *sigh*.

    But I SO appreciate your kind words and thanks for the tag! I'm following via GFC! Have a great week!

    Smiles, Jenn @Misadventures in Motherhood

  5. I love swimming too. I don't do it often enough. Thanks for tagging me!

  6. Thank you for visiting my blog and I really appreciated the comment!!! Your blog layout is great! Love the pics you add to make a post!!!
