This is my theme song....

I actually started this post on Sunday...and became very sick very quickly and am now laying in bed with Viral Meningitis losing my mind feeling miserable and trying to stay out of the hospital....I will be off and on the next couple days just wanted to let you know what was going on if I'm not around very much the next several days

Can you hear it? The prompt for week 12's Deck of Me challenge was "your theme song"...honestly I have no idea where Dianna is coming up with all these awesome prompts..and I so can't believe it's been 12 weeks!

I hope everyone had a really wonderful Easter. Holidays for us are usually pretty quiet, just the 4 of us... we stayed in pajamas and ate and watched movies and played Buzz and ate and slept some more... all in all a perfect day..

In between all that sleeping and eating I got done with both of the other swaps I was working on. The Heidi Swapp ATC swap here

and the tag swap here

Now I can work on our ATC swap here..that is right here where you are right now..and the card swap I'm doing here

Her other tag - So here we go!

The rules: Link to your tagger and post these 3 rules on your blog. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

I've done this a few times lately so I'm just going to list 7 things about me and I'm tagging everyone in my ATC swap so I can get to know you a little better...but since Carolyn started it...she's exempt...LOL

1. I color my hair too Carolyn! about every 3-4 weeks ..I have tons of gray have since I was about 14...I use Garnier Nutrisse Chocolate Carmel...any color named after chocolate has to be a good one...

2. I started a walking challenge with fellow bloggers right here back in January and the farthest I've walked is to my mailbox....I know...I am such a failure...I hate exercise...but I really want to start if it ever stops snowing....If you do want to walk though go check out Kylie and Robin they're both doing awesome!

3. I love to shop but not at the mall...I hate the mall.

4. Big crowded places make me very nervous...see above

5. I love riding roller coasters and have ridden most of the biggest scariest ones, except for the Millenium at Cedar Point, Sandusky, Ohio...I've been all the way up to the front of the line 3 times and every single time chickened out....I mean seriously the first hill is 310 ft high, it takes like 5 min just to get to the top's a thing now...but I have ridden every other roller coaster in that Park

6. I love to read, and I love books...all books and could kill a whole day wondering around Borders or Barnes and Noble....

7. crack a lattes....

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Gratitudes (been slacking here lately)
1. I'm happy I have viral meningitis and NOT bacterial or spinal meningitis...of course I'd rather be well, but gotta look at the bright side
2. high fevers let you get away with saying things you wouldn't normally
3. my 3 sweet men taking such good care of me
4. my laptop because I can blog from bed
5. so grateful that Heaven (SBF) is being so understanding about me missing work....
I've got to go eyes hurt

Lesli said...

Zoe said...

omg i can't believe that you have meningitis and are still blogging. you are a rock star!

Kylie in Warsaw said...

And another thing...

when I read that you tune out I was like, I TOTALLY do that. Maybe it's a mom thing. You have to be able to tune out in order to get things accomplished (not that I ever get things accomplished;).

RobinDiane said...

Oh you are so sweet..I haven't walked very much lately. I plan to really start back on Tuesday!

mamatwoboys said...
