Say What?!

March 6th, 2008 Melanie Posted in Meme Monday 9 Comments »

About a week ago Andrea “high-fived” (her word for tagged) me for this fun hoopla (her word for meme).  And since I have about a bazillion memes saved up for Meme Monday I decided to do this one today.  Because it was created by Andrea and so it deserves special recognition.

This is how it works:

1. Post these rules on your blog.
2. Just list 10 things that won’t likely ever come out of your mouth.
3. High-five (or ‘tag’) any amount of people to do the same on their blog.
4. Then come back here to Lifesong and let me know that you did it.

So, here are 10 things you will never hear me say:

1. Don’t worry about it hon, I’ll go shovel the driveway.
2. It’s too bad spring is here, I’ve really been enjoying all this snow.
3. A free trip to Disney World?  No thanks, we’re all set.
4. Chips Ahoy Chocolate Chip cookies?  Yuck.
5. Coffee?  No, I won’t be needing any of that today.
6. I can’t wait to walk on the treadmill today.
7. Why yes I do enjoy changing Hailey’s poopy diaper while she tries to climb up the wall.
8. It’s so nice to see that you’ve brought your obviously sick child to playgroup today.
9. I hope I don’t get any comments on my blog today.
10. Naahhh, I just don’t have any use for a million dollars.

I’m only going to tag two people: First, I’m tagging Regina because I know how she enjoys some good sarcasm.  And, I’m also tagging one of my newest blogging friends Kristen at We are That Family because she is hysterical and I think she’ll have a good time with this meme.  If you haven’t been by Kristen’s blog yet you should really stop by because in case I forgot to mention it- she is hysterical.

 Meme Monday

It’s time once again for Meme Monday where we save up all of our memes and awards and post them each Monday.  Then everyone comes here and signs Mr. Linky so that we can all visit each other and see what we have been tagged to do and the awards our friends have given us.

And guess what- in case you didn’t notice- we now have a Meme Monday button.  If you want to grab it and add it to your Meme Monday post you can certainly do that.  To make it easier you can click here to get the HTML code for the button.

I have a really easy week this week- I didn’t get tagged at all to do any memes.  I did receive a couple of awards this week.  First I got this one from Pam.  Thanks for thinking of me Pam!  I love my award.

I am going to pass this award onto JennieBoo, Sharon, Deb and KC

Then I received this award from Deb.  Thanks so much Deb- I think your blog is loveable too!


I want to pass this award onto KellanJennifer, Zam, and Crys.

Now if you played along this week, sign Mr. Linky so that the other participants can come and visit your Meme Monday.

Livin’ With Me!

Meme Monday

February 18th, 2008 Melanie Posted in Meme Monday 9 Comments »

It’s already Monday again and time for another round of Meme Monday where we post all of our memes and awards.  Then you come here to sign Mr. Linky so we can all visit each other and check out each others memes and awards.

I had a really easy week this week.  I had only one tag, from Liza, and it was very simple.

Your Birthdate: October 20

You are a virtual roller coaster of emotions, and most people enjoy the ride.
Your mood tends to set the tone of the room, and when you’re happy, this is a good thing.
When you get in a dark mood, watch out – it’s very hard to get you out of it.
It’s sometimes hard for you to cheer up, and your gloom can be contagious.
Your strength: Your warm heart 
Your weakness: Trouble controlling your emotions
Your power color: Black
Your power symbol: Musical note
Your power month: February

What Does Your Birth Date Mean?

So, if you’d like to play along and see what your birth date means, let me know so I can see what you get.

This week I received two awards.  This first one is from Pam.

Thank you so much Pam.  I less-than-three your blog too!  (Just in case you’re like me and have no idea what that means- and you do not have access to a teenager to ask her- the less-than-three is supposed to represent a heart).  And so, I pass this lovely award on to two of my newest blogging friends Crystal and Rachel.

The second award I received was from Memoirs of a Mommy and it seems that I make her day.  Thanks so much Crystal!  I just recently started reading Memoirs of a Mommy and she has a lovely blog that makes my day too. 

Since I just passed this award on last week to just about everyone on my blogroll, I’m not going to pass it on again.

Now if you played along this week please sign Mr. Linky so that the other participants can stop by your blog to check out your memes and awards.

Livin’ With Me!

Meme Monday #3

February 10th, 2008 Melanie Posted in Meme Monday 20 Comments »

Here we are again- another Monday and time for more memes.  Each week you can save up your memes and awards and post them on Monday.  This will help you not to fall behind.  Then come here and sign Mr. Linky so we can all go and visit the other participants.

This week I was tagged by Liza to do the meme about 6 unimportant or quirky things about me.  I actually just did this one last week, but I’m sure I can think up six more things.

1. I had braces for three years when I was younger.
2.  One time when I was about 16 and I didn’t have school my mom came home from work on her lunch break (which I did NOT expect) and found out I had a boy there.  I tried to hide him in the closet, but something about him leaving his bike out in front of our house gave away his presence.
3. I do not iron.  If something is wrinkled I put it in the dryer until the wrinkles are gone.
4. I try to avoid using public bathrooms, but if I absolutely have to use a public bathroom I try very hard not to actually touch anything.  Especially after I have washed my hands.  I use a paper towel to turn the water off and to open the door to leave the bathroom.
5. I have my spices in alphabetical order.
6. I love cereal and could probably eat it for all three meals and be perfectly happy.

And, now I’m tagging La Bellina Mammina and Makimeji


I was also tagged by Heather to do the middle name meme.

(1) You must post the rules on your post before you answer the questions.
(2) You need to list one fact about yourself using each letter of your middle name. If you don’t have a middle name use your maiden name instead.
(3) When you are finished with your answers, you tag one person for each letter of your name. 
I’ve actually done this one before here and I don’t really want to use my maiden name, so I decided to just use my first name.

M- Monopoly is not a game I like to play, it takes way too long.
E- I get so Excited when Rich cleans the kitchen up for me.
L- I hate folding Laundry.
A- I am Afraid of spiders.
N- I’m quite Nice ;)
I- I love Ice cream
E- I love to get Email

For this one I’m supposed to tag seven people because I have seven letters in my name.  So, I’m being lazy and tagging the first seven people on my friends blogroll.


And now some awards.

I got both of these awards from Andrea and from KC:

Rhonda gave me these four awards:

Finally, I received these from Shalini:

And now I am passing all of these awards onto Common Mom, Foster Me Up, La Bellina Mammina, Lifesong, Liza, Makimeji, Mary’s Writing Nook, Military Mom, Mindless ChatterMy 4 KidsO So Mo Love, On The UpsideRamblings of a Crazy Woman, Random Thoughts, Regina’s Family Seasons, Shalini’s Random Thoughts, Shortybears Place, Sit With Me While, Talk To Grams, The Laughs Will Go On, and Through The Eyes Of Me.  So, take whatever awards you don’t have that you want and enjoy them!

Now, sign Mr. Linky so we can all come and visit your blog to see your memes and awards! 

Livin’ With Me!
