A lot of catching up to do..

So as most of you know, I've been participating in the 30 day blog challenge. Well, most of the others who participate have been keeping up. Me on the other hand, well I picked a bad month to try. We left for vacation after "Day 11" and I am just now sitting down to catch up. Instead of a bunch of separate blogs, I'll just combine them all into one.

So Day 12 is all about your biggest regret..

I'd have to say mine is not hanging out at my Aunts house just a little bit longer on July 15th, 2005. My brother had his 23rd birthday party up there and my whole family was there celebrating. Had I known this was the last day I would have seen my mom, I would have hung out a little bit longer. Instead, I left and went to her house to put the kids to bed. At least that was my excuse. The real reason I left was because I did not want to be around all the drinking that I knew was about to start. Now that I look back on it, I wish I would have hung out a little bit longer because that very next morning, she passed away. At my Aunts house. I felt so bad that I wasn't there, but everyone else was. I try to live my life with little to no regrets, but I still can't shake this one, not even 5 years later.

Day 13 talks about my ideal age.

I did not have the "best" childhood growing up. I wouldn't even say that I had good memories growing up so choosing a childhood age would not be in my personal best interest. I also had to grow up super quickly at the ripe old age of 16 because of poor decisions that I had made. I turned into a Mom on July 28th, 1997. I was only a child myself so I will not say that 16, 18 or even 21 were my best age. I've been pondering this for a few days now, because while I did not do my own blogging, I have been reading and wanted to come up with something that really worked for me. I think I will say the best age I've been so far is 28. My family completed itself at that age. I fell more and more in love with my husband and all my children at that age. I felt that my life was more settled. I can only hope that with each year that comes I will still feel this way, or even better.

Day 14 wants to know where it is I blog from.

Usually, it is from my couch, in the living room, in our "home" in Surprise, AZ. If you look back to my Mi Casa post you can see pictures of my house. This week though, I am coming to you live from Kennebunk Maine. God how I love Maine. If it were not for the snow in the winter and the humidity in the summer time, it would be the perfect place to live. Maybe I'll take pictures later and show you what my life in Kennebunk looks like.

Day 15 is all about my very own bucket list.

Have you ever seen that movie? If not, I highly recommend you watching it. One of the best movies that I have ever seen. Makes you think about life and all the things that you want to do before you pass away. I"ll keep my list fairly short, as there are a ton on it.. but here you go!

1. Kiss the Blarney Stone in Ireland
2. Drive a 69 Shelby GT500
3. Sit on the beaches of Turks and Caicos for a week, totally kid free
4. Go with my girlfriends on a cruise.
5. Pay for each of my children to go to whatever college they desire.

I know, that is not a lot, but those are the things that if I can accomplish in my life, will make me super happy!

Day 16 is a hard one for me. It is all about my worst habit. Now who exactly wants to admit their faults? I know I don't but all in good fun I guess I can share.

I think that my worst habit is picking at my face. Seriously, even if there isn't anything to pick at, I still do it. I have really fair skin so when I pick and poke it makes me all red and freaky looking. I really need to stop that.

Hmmmm... I guess that is it for this blog post. I'll post more later on how my vacation is going. I am having a really rough day and sent all 13 of my family members out to Carl's Aunts birthday dinner with out me. I think I am going to take some time to relax now. And catch up on some blogs that I have not been able to comment on.

Night all!!


  1. I kind of like it all condensed like that, I kind of like that life took over your blogging--sometimes I feel like i focus wayyyyyy too much on my blogging that I forget to live to have something to blog about!

  2. I havent seen the Bucket List but it's in my mail box at home right now.

  3. and my hubs would love to do #2. That is his favorite, well one of them, car. And we should go on a cruise, never been on one.
