Over The Top Meme

Today we ripped this meme off a blogger named Linda at the blog Are We There Yet??. Linda changed the meme a bit and so did we. She states that Sandy of Traveling Bells passed on the meme with a blog award called the Over the Top Award. But, it was probably stolen there as well. So, of course, that will be as far as we go. Tracing back our theft's thieves might take some time. Link back to us at Sunday Stealing!

Cheers to all us thieves!
Sunday Stealing: The Over the Top Meme
Part One - Describe:

Your hair?
Getting grayer by the minute.
Your mother?
Your father?
Your favorite food?
It was the Scalloped Potatoes and Ham that I made Thursday night. My Mom's recipe. It was so delicious, so comforting, tasted exactly like my Mom made it. I made a huge tray, definitely enough for leftover lunch on Friday. Our son delivers my dinner to me (I was banned from living room because I wanted to watch Grey's Anatomy instead of the Bears game, what can I say? The Bears suck lately and I didn't want to miss my show and watch yet another bad game.) and he's eating off my plate as he brings it to me. Friday morning I go downstairs and the leftover container was on my laptop. EMPTY. I was livid. I was so looking to more of that comfort food. Anastasia said he had 3 heaping plates Thursday night. Yeah, and whatever he stole off my dinner plate. Grrrrr.
Your dream last night?
Not sure if it was last night or the night before, but my dream was me in an elevator frantically trying to get from the 7th floor to the 9th floor. I have no idea why. It was a short dream.
Your favorite drink?
Regular drink, iced tea. Alcohol, I so seldom drink. A margarita would be good, or a dirty martini.
Your dream/goal?
Staying afloat.
The room are you in?
Living room.
Your hobby?
Your fear?
The F' word. I can't even type it. As a homeowner struggling, it's my greatest fear.
Your TV?'s on. Saturday night tv sucks. We don't have cable or satellite. Just free tv and on Saturday night that means slim pickins.
Your Pets?
Hoping to adopt again soon. I really really want a kitten, but our son is really campaigning for a dog, but I will only agree to a very small breed dog.
According to our son, I have no friends. He said it again last night. Don't you love teens? Want mine?
Your life?
I'm here, I'm queer, get used to it. Oh, and by the way, I'm very cool too. Our daughter can't wait to "out" us to new people. She "outed" me to her bowling coach who thinks we're "cool".
Your mood?
Depressed. I really wish Anastasia would hear from the job she interviewed for and get the job. If she doesn't, I don't think we'll have Christmas presents.
If you're missing someone?
My parents.
Your best friend?
My partner, Anastasia.
Part Two - The Where's?
Where do you want to be in 6 years?
Still in this house, living in this great community.
Where were you last night?
um......I'm always here.
Where did you grow up?
Suburb of Milwaukee.
One place that I go to over and over?
The bathroom. Colitis. Overshare!
Your favorite place to eat out?
Gosh, anyplace that's not my kitchen and that I don't have to cook! I wish I had the $$ to go out for sushi. I love sushi.
Wish list items?
Wish list? Like for Christmas? Video games for our son. A bowling ball for our daughter. A Kindle or Sony Reader for Anastasia.
Last time you laughed?
I laugh all the time. In fact in high school a friend once told me that I laughed at everything. To prove her point she told me that she knew she could make me laugh by saying a single word. I was like, no way. The word? "Shoehorn". It wasn't the word that was funny, because "shoehorn" isn't funny...not by itself really. It was the look on her face when she said "shoehorn" that made me bust out laughing. But there you have it...I laugh at anything.
Last time you cried?
Lately...too often. Nuf said.
Part Three - The What's?
Something that you aren't?
Last thing you did?
Just got back from grocery shopping.
What are you wearing?
Blue tshirt, sweats, slippers.
Something you're not wearing?
Your favorite store?
Fashion Bug, but I never have money to shop there.

Random Tuesday Thoughts

I just have not been feeling well. Colitis is kicking my butt. Anastasia caught that weird bug again at the nursing home and is nauseous all the time. Thank goodness she still had some of the anti-nausea medication from her last hospitalization. She stayed home the last 2 nights with the dry heaves. Good times. I don't know if I'm having a weird colitis attack only, or whether she gave me the bug also because I'm nauseous too. Every time I go to eat a meal I have to stop because I'm nauseous and then have to go to the bathroom. Last night I had 3 small square slices of pizza for dinner. That was it and then I got nauseous. Great diet plan.

At bedtime last night Anastasia told me that Sunday night I was laughing in my sleep. Laughing like I was watching a sitcom or Ellen or Craig Fergusen's show. I haven't a clue what I was dreaming, although I guess it's better than screaming in my sleep...right?

No school today for our son because of Parent Teacher Conferences today. I skipped them because I wasn't feeling well and our son's IEP meeting is coming up anyway. I'll get to meet all of his teacher then, and our son will be required to attend. For some reason this morning he was refusing to go with me to his conference. Arghhh! I finally gave up after I checked his grades online and saw he brought them up and figured I'd have more time at the IEP meeting to talk to his teachers anyway, since there were alloting only 10 minutes per teacher. The aggravation though, it's driving me nuts. Whenever he spends the weekend at his dad's he comes home with attitude. Grrrr!

No school tomorrow for both kids. Hellllppp! I swear I'm going to kill Eddie Haskell. The damn kid cannot seem to understand that my cell phone number is mine and he should be calling our son's cell phone number. This morning he kept calling and calling my phone. He's been told numerous times what number he should be calling. Grrrr!

Today after dropping our son and Eddie Haskell at the movies I went to Targay to pick up prescriptions and toilet paper. When I picked up the toilet paper to put it on the check out counter something pulled from my lower back all the way down to the heel of my left foot. I was lifting frickin' toilet paper for cryin' out loud! WTH?

Our daughter is now trying out for the Girl's Bowling Team at her home school. I have yet to be told what the financial outlay is going to be. I do know that she must have her own 'equipment', so that means shoes ball and bag, but our daughter also tells me there is a jacket and uniform to be bought. WTH? It's a bowling team. What do they need a jacket for? Are they bowling outside? And a uniform? Whatever happened to team t-shirts?
