Wow, Nat. I loved that! It so fun to read and think "I feel the same way". About vanilla scented stuff, yuck! It makes me nauseous. And I also HATE, HATE scary movies. I have things that sacry me, period.

Arin said...

We were so meant to be neighbors! Now I have to think of 100 things that aren't exactly the same as yours. :)

Maggi ("Magoo to you") said...

DO NOT sell your Grandmother's piano!!! It is now officially a family heirloom -- one your boys or your daughter might enjoy owning one day.

Backyard neighbors are never "enjoyed." Sorry that you didn't get "designer" genes, either (skin cancer). About smoking . . . I fumed a time or two. LOL. I give practical gifts, too. Nothing wrong with them, as they are used and appreciated. Of course, they sorda lack the sparkle and magic of my mother's gifts.

Tip for the homefront (housekeeping and making it fun for you and your kids): see

Marla is wonderful, loving, and gives out tons good and practical ideas which make home cleaning, maintenance, food prep, and even (yes) self-care fun! How can you take care of your family if you don't take care of yourself? You are so WORTH IT!

Karlenn said...

You don't wash your face at night???? What???? Okay, I officially hate you! You got all the amazing genes in the family! No pimples, skinny, hardly any health problems... grrr. But not too grrr. Because I love you. I thought I knew you better than anyone in the whole world, but I learned a few new things from this - it was fun! I'll totally do it.

Isaac said...

I have never worn a bikini or shaved my legs (Ankles once); however, I am a good seamstress.

Heidi said...

Umm... Isaac, I believe you HAVE shaved your legs, remember? You said they looked too pretty and it freaked you out?
And, hello, your speedo would totally count as a bikini. You're just topless.
(Sigh)I miss your speedo and your pretty legs. ; ) Love you!

(Isaac's wife)

Isaac said...

I didn't shave my legs. I used clippers not a razor. Almost the same look but Very different. I wore pants for the next couple of months to hide my "pretty" legs.
And that Speedo was for swimming laps at Cottonwood Reacreation Center. For everyone reading this blog; no, I didn't strut around the deck of the pool sporting a Speedo....I wore a towel around my waist when I was on deck. I wore the speedo for practicality purposes; not for the looks. Thanks Dear. I love you.

Nat, you have to love what surfaces on your blog. Oh, and I like mushrooms, olives and tomatoes.
