friday's feast #144 (#16)

List 3 emotions you experienced this week.

Frustration - I've altered my diet for medical reasons and it is SO frustrating. There are so many things I used to eat that I'm really not supposed to have. I'm hoping I can get things under control and find alternate foods that are okay for me.
Joy - We joined the local YMCA and now I get to SWIM!!!! I really enjoy the water and love that I can share that with my kids.
Love - My husband and my kids have been hugging and kissing me a lot (probably because I'm so darn grouchy because of my diet changes!) - that makes me feel loved.

Name a car you'd love to have.

As much as I never thought I'd say this, I would love to have a minivan. It would make life a lot easier for me.

Describe your typical morning routine.

I have two different typical morning routines. On Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, I'm up at 7ish and I wake up my daughter for her shower. She is not so easy to wake up and I usually have to tickle her or something to get her moving. The little boy I babysit comes at 7:15 but he goes back to sleep. My daughter needs prodding after her shower to put her clothes on and get ready. She leaves at 8. Then, I usually get dressed. My son gets up after that and the day has begun! On Fridays, add to that, a baby I watch arrives at 7:30 and it gets crazy around here!
On Tuesdays and Thursdays, I work outside the home. I get up at 7:15 or so and wake up my daughter. Then I jump in the shower. When I get out, it's time to push my daughter to get her out the door on time. After she leaves, I pack my work bag, my lunch, and my son's bag. Then I wake up my son. I get dressed and then help my son get dressed. I make a waffle for my son and I blow dry my hair while he eats it. We leave around 8:30. I take him to the sitter or grandma's house and then I head to work.

Wow, that was boring. :)

Main Course
Have you ever emailed someone famous? If so, who, and what did you say to them? Did they reply?

I have never emailed someone famous. The closest thing to that would be that I sent a question to Rosie O'Donnell on her blog. It was about 1 in the morning and I couldn't sleep. I was bored. I asked her if she ever had insomnia and what she does when she has it. She answered that she plays online games at

Wow, that was boring too. :)

Do you listen to podcasts? If so, which ones?

Occassionally. When I do, I listen to New Life Live, Focus on the Family, and sometimes Family Life. I am sure there are others out there that I would enjoy. I haven't explored that yet.
