Thursday Thirteen

I got a mailing from Publishers Clearinghouse this week. Someone with the intials MK is a confirmed winner! So, MamaKaren, send in your winner form now!! It just might be you!!! And if you follow our script and say the inane line below, we'll give you an extra FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS!!!! So I give you...

Thirteen Things I'll do with the Big! Money! Jackpot!


1. Put an expansion on the house to... 2. expand the kitchen to a size that will allow two adults to move without bumping into each other, 3. create extra space in the basement for playrooms (one for the kids' toys, one for my yarn!) 4. and build another bathroom. One shower for five people? Not gonna work for too much longer... 5. Good-bye Payless, hello Ferragamo 6. Regular trips back to Monterey to restock our favorites from here and and here, and here, and especially here, since we can't get wine shipped to our house. 7. Hire a regular cleaning service. As God is my witness, I'll never scrub toilets again! 8. Splurge for the power doors, 6-disk CD player, flat folding rear seats and DVD player in the next minivan. (Hey, I still have to transport three kids, so a minivan makes sense!) 9. Princess wants to go to ballet camp? No problem! Hoss wants a baseball clinic? Go ahead! 10. Hey, Nic, is the blue Mustang OK, or do you want a silver one? 11. Orchestra, center, anything in the first 12 rows is fine 12. Happy hour. In Waikiki. 13. Oh, let's be real. I'd better save the whole thing to pay for 3 kids in college and two sets of aged parents.

I would definitely go with the cleaning service, too. I hate cleaning in any form. And happy hour in Waikiki sounds like heaven!

We all have those lists, don't we? I love to dream. I had already mentally spent my winnings from the Mega Millions. But alas...

Thanks for dropping by my blog.

I'd hire a personal chef, that way I never have to cook and if my hubby has any complaint about it not tasting like his mother's, then only the cook will have hurt feelings!

Great TT! Mine is up!

Who's Who

    Hubby- aka DH My husband since 1995. He is the head of the band department at a college prep school, and dabbles as a wanna-be pop star.

    The Princess- aka DD. Third grader at the local parochial school. Loves butterlies, sparkly things, the color purple and has recently developed a crush on one of the twins from "The Suite Life of Zach and Cody". Is ready for her teenage years, having already perfected her exasperated sigh and dramatic eye-roll.

    Hoss- aka DS1. Kindergartener and resident spirited child. His aunt likes to call him "the evil genius" because of his penchant for letting a lack of intellectual stimulation lead him into mischief. Likes trucks, sports, building things and burping. His current favorite word is "underwear."

    Lil Joe- aka DS2. Born in 2003. Doesn't say much we can understand, but has mastered the important stuff ("eat!", "Wash hands!", "Want chocolate ones!", "Hockey game!") Likes to push buttons, much to the consternation of whoever is trying to watch a DVD. Firmly refuses to use the potty, despite evidence that he is physically ready to be out of diapers, indicating a level of stubborn that eclipses even that of his parents and siblings.

    Me? I'm the Mama. That's all you need to know.

    Wanna contact me?
