Infrequently Asked Questions

So the other day, my fellow blogger over at Is there Cheese in It  tagged me to answer some really important questions! So here goes...

1. What made you decide to get into blogging?

I kept having these amazing essays write themselves while on my long runs while training for half marathons and eventually my marathon.  It may have been the lactic acid delirium, but I thought I was profound and witty so I decided to put them on paper... or at least on the web.

2. How has it impacted your life?

mmmm.... It has helped me put in some kind of record, things I would eventually want my kids to know about life, love and leggings if I were rammed by my goat tomorrow and suffered a head injury or something.  I am not as regular as I would like to be, but the reality is I know I can't force the word... they come when they come, in a rapid-don't-bother-me-I-need-to-get-this-recorded-now-despite-it's-2:30am-now form.  The comments and statements from a variety of people (ages, moms, retired people) has boosted my self confidence a bit.

3. How do you manage to work blogging into your schedule?

WHat schedule?  Ok, ok... usually somewhere between 10pm-1am.  I am a night owl thru and thru and when I get writing, the walls could be burning down and I don't care much. I need to get the words out.

4. What's your favorite non-blogging "me-time" activity?

Stepping over the big chunks on the kitchen floor, frantically searching for matching socks at 8am, and upcycling existing clothing into funky little girls clothing.

5. If you could be anything in the world, what would you be? (Could be a profession, an inanimate object, an's the limit!)

One of my spoiled rotten cats. They spend the entire winter (Which here in the great white north is like 9 months) camped in front of the fireplace.

ANd then there was another set.....

1. If you had to listen to a song on repeat all day today, which would you choose?

Oh this is tough....and I can't answer honestly... but I will say I have listened to Taylor Swifts 1989 album about 35 times in the last week and a half. Don't judge.

2. If you wrote a book on parenting (that evil genre), what would the title be?

Welcome to Chaos! Check your sanity at the door.

3. What is your spirit animal? 
 Which animal likes to eat? A lot? All day long?

4. What are three of your favorite words?

Douchebaggery, asshat, gigantor

5. Disneyland - Yay or Nay?

Hell yes!! We just took the fam there for the first time last May and it was fantastic!!



  1. Thank you for taking me up on this challenge! 

    I would totally prefer to do my reading on a sunny beach with an adult beverage as well, maybe we should plan a trip together. We can tell people it's a highly exclusive blog conference and make all our friends think we're moving up in the world. :-)

  2. Haha. Love this post. Grilled cheese sandwich would totally be an excellent spirit animal. Speaking of, I had grilled cheese sandwiches (yes, plural... I'm currently 9 months knocked up) and tomato soup for dinner last night, but I may just have to pull a repeat and have the same for lunch here in a hot minute. But with more cheese on the sandwiches this time, I tried to be reasonable with my cheese allocation last night but that was a dumb decision and I was slightly disappointed with the result.


    1. Sarah - You can never have "too much" cheese! It is one of the essential truths of the universe! Especially when you're pregnant! Enjoy your extra cheesy grilled cheeses ;)
