Ten Things I Never Get Tired of Doing

1. Blogging. I never would have believed how much I love it and all the bloggy friends I have made. It's a whole new world for me.

2. Drinking coffee in the morning. I love just holding the hot cup when I'm still sleepy and cold. I love the smell of it.

3. Watching TV at night with my 14-year old. Right now we're watching season two of Gilmore Girls. I get the rest of the kids off to bed, and let her stay up a little later. It's her time of the day that she "talks".

4. Saturday night date night. My husband and I don't go out a lot, so we like to eat a late dinner after the little ones are in bed. Tonight we are going to a hockey game, so we'll have to eat an early dinner.

5. Being a stay-at-home-mom. I don't know for how much longer, though. My youngest will be in preschool this year!

6. Watching a baseball game. We have a great local baseball team and get cheap or free tickets all the time. The kids love chasing the balls and fighting for flying Tshirts. I even love watching my sons play.

7. Cooking a good meal. What can I say? I love food! Tonight - barbequed ribs and oven baked steak fries.

8. Reading a book. I need to find more time for this!

9. Taking a long walk/run. I feel so good when I'm done. It gives me time to think without hearing a constant, "Mom!".

10. Shopping. Like Leslie said, it just makes me happy!

I am adding this to Amy's meme. I like how she always writes her list of what she's grateful for.

These are all wonderful things that you love to do - many of the same things I enjoy myself. We are livin' pretty darn good lives - aren't we! Take care Maria and have a good weekend - Kellan

I found myself agreeing with so many of the things you said as my favorite also. That was a fun way to get to know you better. Have a great day.

Yeah, shopping makes me happy. Especially all the deals I saw today! The outlets have great sales! And no crowds. I actually feel a lot of remorse because I should have bought a lot more. And Eric actually thought I bought too little!!! I should have stocked up.

Mary said...

yeah, I love blogging to. I'm somewhat addicted to it. My husband calls it my crack pipe. He's just jealous that's all.
Oh I can never go without my morning coffee........I get a headache and then my day just isn't right!
I love Gilmore Girls! When I was younger, before I met my husband, I use to go over my sister Amy's house to watch it!
Hope you are having a good weekend :)

I can't wait to etch TV with my kids. DO you love it? Awww... I can;t wait!

That's a great list! I have to say I agreed with everyone, well, except watching the Gilmore Girls with my daughter, I have two boys and they don't watch the Gilmore Girls! But, we do watch American Idol together and laugh! I just LURVE my morning coffee, too, and especially the aroma that wafts through the house, mmmmm!


Becky said...

Loved your list! I can identify with many...except I don't have a daughter to watch Gilmore Girls with. Nope, in our family I'm subjected to boy stuff 24/7.

Leah said...

Sounds like a very fullfillin life you lead, surrounded by plenty of people and activities to keep you sane and happy! AWESOME!

girlymom said...

It sounds like you are pretty happy with many aspects of your life! I agree with so many things too

Kila said...

Nice list. I should do more of those things. (I don't think I'll go for a walk or run for a couple more months, though! It's below zero here again.)

Coffee. I like it close enough to enjoy the aroma, but I don't care to drink it!

Anonymous said...

What a great list! I agree about the whole coffee thing...oh how I miss coffee!

Amy said...

like your list, and thanks for playing!

All your jobs at home don't go away just because your kids are all in school, do they? Don't leave the SAHM camp!

We love those minor league games, too. So cheap, and so much more kid-friendly!

you sound like a wonderful mom!
