So, I’ve got a bunch of blogging stuff to catch up on. It’s almost Saturday and I haven’t even posted Thursday show and tell. So here’s my meal, roasted sweet potatoes and potato-potatoes and fork-tender roast beef:
Three days out of the week, a friend delivers a hot delicious meal to my door.
I pull it out.
Dish it up.
Yum. Yum. Yum. I’m supposed to add something green, but this one already had something orange so I figured I was okay. Still taking those prenatal vitamins so I think I’m good.
Now a meme from Beth, the fabulous:
10 years ago: I was finishing my senior year of high school in the great state of Texas. I was working 20 hours a week as a geophysical technician, planning on having the oil company I was working for pay my way through college to become an engineer. A few months later I decided to study film and English instead. I was teaching piano lessons and working as a checker at a grocery store, the worst checker in recorded history. I weighed 40 lbs less. I had 2 fewer kids and much more sleep. I went to prom with Jessica’s husband.
5 years ago: I graduated from college, got a job as an Associate Librarian for a public library, supervising their Media department. A professor once joked that I was the only film graduate he knew that was working in a job in the “industry” with steady pay and benefits. I was still working freelance as a marketing person for a big Denver-based library supplier, traveling around the country talking about their digital products. I met Dan, fell in love and got married…in a very short period of time. I stopped going to prom with Jessica’s husband.
1 Year ago: I was pregnant with Magoo, feeling great, excited to be having a boy. We started “aggressively” potty-training Laylee. Hm…she’s ALLLL-most there now.
5 songs I know all the words to: I am a lyrics maniac. I know the words to a LOT of songs, songs I like, songs I abhore. It sort of freaks DYD out. I could even do a stirring rendition of Baby Got Back for no reason whatsoever. Um…eeewwww.
5 Things I’d do with a million dollars:
Sorry to be boring. I’d pay off my house and invest. That is all. With the investment revenue…that’s a whole OTHER question.
5 places I’d run away to:
-My mom’s house
-small eastern townships in Quebec
-Cape May, NJ
5 things I’d never wear:
–See-through pants. BETH, WHAT THE HECK IS WRONG WITH YOU???? 🙂
-Anything showing my midriff – Magoo was a MONSTER and Laylee loves my tiger-stripes. The rest of the world is gonna have to live without the tankini version of the Daring One.
-A onesie. I will wear nothing that buttons between the legs.
-I can’t think of a 5th. Being a mom and a married woman, there’s not much I cannot see myself wearing in some situation.
5 Favorite Toys:
-Purses and Bags – of all kinds
-Phones – Cell and Land
5 Favorite Books or TV shows:
(I’m gonna do the shows because I think I’ve talked about books on here before.)
– Little House on the Prairie
-The Cosby Show (especially the early seasons)
-The West Wing
5 Greatest Joys:
-The Spirit in my life
-My extended family on both sides
Kim asked me to do a meme that I’ve done before but it’s been morphing and so I’ll do the parts I didn’t already do. That woman amazes me. How does she have time to raise and educate all those kids and maintain a great blog too? Wow.
4 places I’ve vacationed
-Key West, Florida
-“The States” When I was little, growing up in Canada, I would always tell my friends we were planning a summer vacation to “The States.” So very cool.
4 of my favorite dishes
–Rogan Josh – Indian Lamb or Beef stew
-Any pasta dish, especially those containing sun-dried tomatoes
-My dad‘s Chili
–White Chicken Cilantro Chili
For anyone who cares…I promise to post a real-ish post sometime soon. I’ve been a bit distracted and blah about blogging lately. I’m sure it will come back, that burning need to describe my personal life in detail on the internet in a semi-interesting non-list-format sort of way.
No posts for two days and I was wondering what had happened to you. I even started to think there was something wrong with my internet connection because how could it be that DYM hasn’t updated in two days?!
Loved that! Everything about you is interesting to me. I think you are wonderful and had fun walking down memory lane with you. I’m so glad I’ve gotten to share the journey.
Hey, good to see you back! Thanks for “daring” to write again.
So you spent some time in Texas! Is that why I like you so much? 🙂
Queen Beth says
Ok we totally have to get together and do Baby Go Back together!!!
I nearly fell off my chair laughing about the see thru pants! Clarification! Sometimes some pants show panty lines more than others. SO I was referencing those kinds of pants.
But just to keep some mystique…maybe I do wear see thru pants…and maybe I don’t!!!! 🙂
so no “peg leg pete” pants for you? whats with all these feet pictures.
that onesie thing is funny. i agree. i wouldn’t ever wear one. imagine buying one, and thinking of the person that may have tried it on before without underwear on. i always wash my clothes first, cause now adays people try things on and they might be wearing dental floss instead of panties.
Hmm, you list The Office, but not My Name is Earl. I thought they were a package — you have to watch them both. Otherwise, bad Karma!
Yay for the Cosby show!
I didn’t see the ad for Ronald Reagan on my blog. 🙁 What makes you think we are Reagan fans?! 😉 I suppose if we told you our Reagan has a middle initial of “W” you’d really suspect our republican-ness!
Hello! It was recommended to me that I visit your blog. I have loved every word that I have read! When I read or hear something fabulous, I have a tendency to adopt it as my own. (In other words, steal it. But I always give proper credit!) And, I MUST steal your use of “tiger stripes.” I have always believed scars to be badges of honor, and after giving birth to 3 children (two of whom mystify me as to how they FIT through the birth canal) I have a strange sense of pride for my tummy marks…I will ALWAYS have a reminder of what my body is capable of and of what I gained in the process. (At least this is what I’m telling myself today!) So, thanks for the “tiger stripes” comment. I promise I’ll give you credit for it!!
Cool. I just went back and read the explanation of your magically appearing dinners, and I’m SO jealous. I’m going to need to ask some of my neighbors about setting up a dinner co-op. That’s brilliant!
I used to LOVE Little House on the Prairie! Or maybe I loved Pa. Yeah, I seem to remember that I had a huge crush on Pa for a very long time…
I really like the food being delivered idea.
I had to go back and read the food idea too. I’d be afraid I’d get kicked out, ’cause of my cooking. I nabed the recipe for White Chicken Cilantro Chili, it sounded fabulous! 🙂

Mr. Sparkle and I went around the Gaspe Peninsula on a 7-week vacation to Canada- it was so cool! But… we have never been to Key West and we live in FL! Go figure!
Don’t worry about the blogging- I would wait forever for you, DYM! Some time off is a good thing every now and then!
shannon from rocks in my dryer says
Kathryn, you’re always interesting, even when you’re feeling “blah”. You rock.
Yeah, I definitely need to figure out some way to get food magically to disappear on my doorstep… Time to go network in the Relief Society, I guess…
I want dinner group to hook me up!
