Did You Hear the One about Super Scribbler That Walks Into A Therapists' Office?

I've been in need of some good blog material.  And lucky for me I got tagged.  Usually, I'm a wee bit snarky with being tagged.  I have a hard time following the rules, and I don't like being told what to do.   Go figure.

Since that hasn't changed, and I'm grateful for the tag, here goes:

Chris at Finding My Way (love that title, by the way), AND Jennifer at Crazy, Magic, Sometimes Hectic, Beautiful Life (Um, yeah, that about sums it up, eh?) both tagged me with the same one.  Love that!  I'm feeling all efficient and sh*t getting them both done!  Chris is a doll.  She has a darling little son, Jack, and is a teacher -- of that number-like thing...I think it's called Math.  So many kudos to her.  And Jennifer not only has twins, but she threw another one in there too.  Sheez.  Over-achiever!  Please stop by. 

So this is the 7 Random things tag.  I think I'm supposed to list 7 random things about myself, and tag 7 people or something... (how am I doing so far?  Still reading?).

So I'm tweaking this a bit into 7 Random Reasons Why I Need A Good Therapist:

1.  I dream about having more babies ALL. THE. TIME.  Last night I had a peach-fuzzed, blonde little girl that I kept throwing up into the air because she was asking me to.  Yup.  The baby.  I knew she was mine, but I didn't know her name.    

2.  I totally want to be past-life regressed.

3.  I hate dirty hands and feet.  I wash my hands maniacally, and when I carry baby wipes to wash my feet on flip-flop days.  

4.  I've googled all of my exes.  Heh.  

5.  My dog knows my mood better than I do.  If she's under the bed, I guess that means I should have crawled under there with her.

6.  I organize my kids' toys.  Art supplies no exception.  I actually head out shopping in search of a new "puffy ball" tin, or "googly eye bin."  Markers must be sorted by brand, size, and thickness.  EVERYthing has its place.  Fun times.  (See playroom for neurotic exhibit A.  Wish I had a shot of the "creation station.")

7.   I still think that for a short period, when I was five, I could hover.  I floated, in a doorway.  Totally.  I think I was magic.  

There you have it.  I'm taking recommendations for meds I may need to discover.  

As for the tagging part, if you dig it, please join in.

But wait, the fun is not over, I was also given a hugely generous gift from the ever-so-lovely Jason at The Jason Show.  Does it get much better than this?  I really think it must have been Jason's hunky stand-in that truly gave me this award (not to be outdone by Jason's uber-hunkiness, himself).  Because my lack of quality bogging has been rather apparent these days, okay, months...

However, since I'm not one to look a gift horse in the mouth, Jason, I accept.  Thank you my friend.  Please check him out.  The most loveable family man you may ever meet.  And by family, of course I mean, an ex-wife, a handful of children, an English-as-a-Third-Language (hunky) partner, and all the mixings for some truly fine comedic relief.  

Allow me to flaunt:

I'm passing this one along to:

Clarissa, at A Working Mom's Playground because this mother of beautiful boy/girl twins has heart and soul, creativity and drive, persistence and motivation all of which I admire and envy.  Please check her out.

We have the same kidcraft kitchen set. And white high chair. And map.

Looks just like our playroom, LOL!

Jenn @ Juggling Life said...

A place for everything and everything in its place. Sigh.

Kristen said...

How fun!!

I actually love your list, and can I just tell you that I love you even more for not being a rule follower. (So over-rated!)

Congrats on your award too. No matter how often you do or do not blog, you are still one of my faves!

i do not understand no. 6.

Burgh Baby said...

Your uber-organized playroom gets me all hot and bothered. Yes, neatness does turn me on. So what?

Kori said...

I love your #4; why is that I have never done that? Off to google....

CC said...

that's super cool about the hovering. I'm still working on that ;)

CRigg said...

Ah, thanks for the shout-out, Jamie. I have not been able to blog too much lately as well...I appreciate that when I do, someone appreciates it! :)
See you at the cookie exchange in a week!


CRigg said...

BTW, I SO love the organization of your playroom. Something for me to aspire to have.

Trish said...

Your playroom may be perfectly neat and labeled like the great teacher that you are - but the pictures on the wall are crooked.... are you running in there right now to straighten them?

And except for the googling of the exes thing which I am famous for, none of these are quirks that you inherited from me.
I'm just sayin'.

Motherhood for Dummies said...

Love you playroom.... I can't wait till we have a house where we can have one. Ohhh soo jelouse!

Anonymous said...

i wish the list would go on.
what you need: time near the Flatirons

Krystyn said...

Can you please come organize our playroom? Oh, wait, it's also our living room!

It looks fab!

Briana said...

I had to laugh about the playroom. I am EXACTLY the same way. Lately I'm trying to find a rolling bin for "large bulky mountain train thingy" and something to keep cotton balls in.

So why do you need therapy?

Lisa@verybusymomwith4 said...

I tend to be anal on organizing too--you have a label maker right--if not Santa needs to put one in your stocking :)
Congrats on the award!

chris said...

Love the twist on the 7 random things. Thanks for playing along! :)

Love your list and I was feeling all warm and fuzzy until I got to #6...and then I realized that I'm not sure that you and I can actually be friends, James...unless of course, you feel the urge to do some of that organizing over here...think about it okay? I make a mean margarita...:-D
