Spring Cleaning

Alright, I’ve got another random post, but several things have collected in my cleanup pile and I need to take care of them.

First and foremost – as most of you MUST know by now, 5 Minutes for Moms is hosting a Mother’s Day giveaway. I am most interested in this iPod. (as are several thousand other moms…) Maybe I’ll get lucky this Mother’s Day… so head on over and sign me… er… yourself, up!

Also, Everyday Mommy is giving away a free blog design. Her designs are some of my favorites. They are clean and neatly organized. The winner will be announced on Mother’s Day. Head over and sign up for this one too.

Finally, Barbara H tagged me for the 7 Random Facts about Me meme… I have 100 I already confessed to. But it was easy to come up with 7 more. I am nothing if not random…

  • I am a lazy perfectionist – I like things perfect. But if they can’t be I don’t really bother… one look around my home and you’ll agree…
  • I have a hard time finishing things (might have something to do with #1) I have unfinished quilts… unfinished bible studies… unfinished piles of unsorted stuff…
  • I don’t dwell on my looks much, but I’m really self consicous about my profile. I’ve never liked my jaw/neck line and nose fronm the side… blech…
  • I’m a McDonald’s addict — the worst thing they did for my diet was when they made McNuggets all white meat; before that, I loved the taste of them but HATED the dark color in it…
  • Along those lines, I hate chicken on the bone. Gag! I’ll only eat the breast, and even then, I just pull off the big chunks and that is that…
  • When I was little I hated going to sleep without all of my stuffed animals. Problem was, I had so many that we couldn’t all fit in the same bed. But we managed somehow…
  • I love love love love love love love the snow… oh my, do I love it. Did I mention I love it?

    We have a lot in common…#s 1, 2, 5 & 7! “Lazy perfectionist”…thanks for giving me a label I can live up to ;p

  2. I’m curious, Karla. Do you get a lot of snow in Tennessee? We don’t get nearly as much snow in western Colorado as we did on the other side of the mountains and there are times I miss it.

    Chicken McNuggets gag me but I’m a complete sucker for two cheeseburgers, fries and a Coke, supersized. It’s best I just stay away from McDonalds. LOL

  3. Big Mama says

    I could not agree more about the chicken on the bone. It just completely grosses me out.

  4. {Karla} says

    No Barb… unfortunately we don’t get any here… I loved our Wisconsin winters and miss them a lot.

    But I still love it here in TN!

  5. I am also a great starter and a shocking finisher. I bought this Noahs Ark cross stitch about 6yrs ago with the intention of having it finished by the time we had our first baby (I knew that gave me about 3yrs)… baby no. 3 will arrive in September and it still sits with only the sea completed! LOL

  6. Melanie says

    I will eat chicken with a bone, but I have to pick it off. I have been this way since I was a kid. I told Mama “only dogs gnaw bones.” :>) I just can’t stand the feel of it hitting my teeth. But it doesn’t stop me from eating meat. LOL

  7. Susanne says

    I love snow too and can’t imagine not having any where I live. I have a hard time finishing projects too, I just run out of steam.

  8. come visit me karla…i got enought snow to put a smile on your face ALL DAY LONG! (although its melted now…BUT it take long to return….) :)

    ps when i was with YWAM I went to Nashville once. (My leader was from Nashville) We had a blast…my biggest memories was the church we went to…AND eating at “noshville” restaurant.
    mmmmm. big ole pickles they got there.
