Obligatory NaBloPoMo Post

So far so good, but I'm starting to feel like those girls on that air freshener commercial who agreed to write a song for the thirty days the thing kept working. Hmmm.....what can I write about next?

I got all three kids dressed and ready before the 7:45 deadline this morning, loaded them all into the car, turned the key and got nothing. That car was dead, man. There I was, dressed and hair combed, all wasted because I unloaded my mini-crew and scrapped school today. We've actually had a pretty good day. Jacob helped me clean the toy room without one complaint. He also dusted and swept the floors and folded towels. I was all patting myself on the back at how well I have taught him to help out around the house when he mentioned his real motive: Santa. Hey, if the bearded one keeps my house picked up for the next month, I'm all for it. I really have enjoyed his company today, so much so that I was imagining what it would be like if I scrapped school for the rest of the year and homeschooled him. Then Adam and Elizabeth both pooped all over everything at the exact same time and I came back to reality and realized no way, not now.

For the sake of NaBloPoMo, I am taking requests.

Anything you want to know about me, just ask. I have 18 more days to write this month and there's just so much mother-in-law bitching a person can do.

Ha, ha, I love the air freshner commercial reference. It does get hard to find things to talk about for NaBloPoMo. I'm not sure what I'll post today.

Ok, here's something I love to hear about. Tell us about pre-children Andria. What was she like? What did she do? Did she dream of a career or a family? What did she do with her free time/for fun?

i would like to know how you almost got set up with Brad Paisley once?! and by the way, what you were thinking saying NO!
and also, i'm curious as to what you think of houston. there's always a small chance my husband will get relocated there.

Mommy Daisy stole mine - I wanted to know about pre-kid Andria too! What kinds of jobs have you had? What was your wedding like? Did you go to prom? College? What do you want to do after the kids are out of the house?
