At peace x2

Saturday, January 14, 2006

I was tagged by Meow and typed this out this morning but am just posting it now. I went to a disastrous dinner at the in-laws tonight, and I can not even imagine putting that experience into words, so I am really glad I had this to post. I also received a lovely package from Stephanie which included an awesome cd, card and a magnet which reads:

peace.
it does not mean to be in a place
where there is no noise, trouble
or hard work. it means to be in
the midst of those things and still
be calm in your heart.
(unknown)

I would have posted photos but Blogger is not wanting me to at the moment.

#2 TAG

2 names you go by: Dr. C, Mom

2 parts of your heritage: German, Scottish

2 things that scare you: Flying, children getting hurt

2 of your everyday essentials: Coffee, Elizabeth Arden bronzer

2 things you are wearing right now: pajama top and bottoms

2 things you want in a relationship: Honesty and Compassion

2 truths: Things happen for a reason. Dreams can come true if your focus is clear and you apply yourself to fulfilling them.

2 of your favorite hobbies: Art and Crafts

2 things you want really badly: The ability for the entire family to travel whenever and wherever we please. For my sons to be the happiest, kindest and most fulfilled people that they can be.

2 places you want to go on vacation: Greece, Hawaii

2 things you want to do before you die: See my children grow up to be those people. Travel more.

2 ways that you are stereotypically a chick: I cry easily. Puppies and babies make me melt.

2 things you are thinking about now: I have to get out of my pajamas and get my son ready for swimming lessons. I really shouldn’t be blogging right now.

2 people to tag: Stephanie and Jase

I am adding this later on Saturday, because I just discovered that Scholiast had tagged me to list five of my weird habits. I had a really hard time with this one. I asked Mr.C. what my weird habits were and his exact words "You don't have any...well, other than the hair thing." So that one is number one, but the others were hard to think of, weird but true.

1. I play with my hair when I’m thinking and if I come across one that feels a little rough in texture, I pull it out. If I find a grey one, I pull that out as well.
2. I curl my toes constantly, and can not stand to wear socks. I am barefoot when I am home, even in the winter.
3. I vacuum or sweep the house every day, because I can not stand the sight of gobs of dust. In fact, I enjoy vacuuming. Instant gratification.
4. I read the obituary in the newspaper almost every day.
5. I pick out my sons’ clothes every night and set them on his bureau for the next day. When I take them out I smell them. I smell both of the boys’ clothes. All the time.

Any other weirdos can fulfill the task if you so wish :)

Good Saturday Night, Good Sun Day!

    Nice getting to know more about you :) ... The clouds in the header are nice and peaceful.

    Sorry about the bad time with the in-laws. If it makes you feel better, my MIL lives with me.

    You feel better now, don't you? ;)

  1. Blogger Cathy said:

    Thanks Tee.
    Instantly better :)

  1. Blogger Jase said:

    Thanks for tagging me!
    2 things to do before bedtime: Leave a little thank you note for my wonderful friend Cathy whom I think very fondly of and who keeps me blogging. Go out and have a beer (or 2).

  1. Blogger DayByDay4-2Day said:

    this weido will do the 5 thing when I don't have anything to post. But since my mind is full of stuff it might be awhile.

  1. Blogger Meow said:

    Great x2 list, Cathy.
    Love your weirdo list, also, although I don't find those things weird at all ... I am constantly twirling my hair, I check out the obits daily, I hate wearing socks, and I love picking out clothes for my daughter. Don't know about the vaccuuming bit, though. I can live without that ... once a week is heaps !!
    Take care,
    Meow :-)

    enjoy ...

    Greece and Hawaii....heaven :)

  1. Blogger SkyeBlue2U said:

    Ha ha, alot of those I can relate to, esp. the vacuuming, my favorite toy is the dirt devil!!! Don't pull any grey ones out, they come back in doubles.(myth maybe)

  1. Blogger Stephanie said:

    Sorry about the disastrous dinner :( The magnet made me think of you - some days it's easier than others, isn't it? Thanks for the tag, I'm nearly finished, but weirdly, the one which I can't figure out is how I'm stereotypically a chick...

  1. Blogger Chloe said:

    in laws suck.
    you hear me in laws? You suck.

    there, i said it!
    thanks! :)

  1. Blogger Corrina said:

    Delightful as always...

  1. Blogger vani said:

    nice list- i do the hair thing too! i thought i was the only weird one..haha.

  1. Blogger erikku said:

    That's a good meme, I might self-tag myself if no-one tags me.

    Barefoot in the winter!?! And you live up north?!? Burr..

  1. Blogger momyblogR said:

    Great quote!!

    I'm a big clothes sniffer too. I wonder why? I know they are clean but I do it anyway.

    Weird!

    LOL!

  1. Blogger Cathy said:

    Jase;
    Sweetie:) Have another for me:)

    DaybyDay;
    I'll await it...

    Meow;
    I guess I'm just not as weird as I thought I was.

    Wildpic;
    Welcome! Please do come back; I'd love to have a friend in India!

    Michelle;
    Have you been?!

    SkyeBlue;
    I think it's a myth; so far, anyway...

    Stephanie;
    The dinner was boring and crap. I am done with in-laws.
    The magnet is perfect; you so get me:) I'll be by to see the post!

    Chloe;
    I've sent you an e-mail.
    They do suck; IN-LAWS SUCK!

    Corrina;
    Thanks, luv:)

    Vani;
    That's three of us with the hair thing; no longer classifies as weird!

    Eric;
    TAG!

    MomyBlogR;
    The weird thing is I only sniff clean clothes, right out of the dryer is the best. I don't sniff potentially dirty ones!

  1. Blogger Heidi said:

    Phew..I'm not the only one who reads the obits..lol

    It freaks me out at times when i see the same last name as mine..Creepy.

    Sorry about your inlaws..ugh.

  1. Blogger Cathy said:

    Heidi;
    That makes two of us:)
    I feel really morbid doing this. But on the other hand, when I go, I'd like to know that some perfect strangers, as well as loved ones, are reading it!
    Happy Monday to you, blogger friend:)

  1. Blogger Marel Lecone said:

    Barefoot for me, all the way. And, vacuuming, huh? Hmmm. Instant gratification? Another hmmmm. I think that I would rather gratify instantly by . . . well, I can't think of what . . . but, for me, no vacuuming, please? hahaha :) Great lists. I'm sorry about the in-law dinner. Those should be outlawed. haha See, I'm attempting funny. Hope that you have a great week. :)
