Emma and I are still at my mom's, but are heading back home this afternoon. We had a really great Easter. Emma played so hard yesterday that I thought she would fall asleep really easily. Unfortunately, she was still wide awake last night at 12:25 a.m. when I realized that I had run out of the sposie dipes that we use while at my mom's. I wrapped her bum in a towel and went to the store to get diapers. I bribed my brothers to come with me with promises of milkshakes from Steak N Shake. Thankfully, she finally fell asleep in the car, and was asleep when I ran into Walgreen's and spent a bloody fortune on those dumb diapers. Ugh! I hate buying disposable diapers!

Last night I didn't feel like making the drive home, but today I am so ready to get back - back to my own bed, my own food, my own garden, and my own worms. And, of course, back to my freezer filled with cooking club meals!!

I keep forgetting to do this. Melanie tagged me!

Six Weird Qualities or Habits I Have:
1. I feed my dogs off my fork.
2. When I find an article of clothing I like, I buy it in two or three colors.
3. Sometimes I Google old friends to see if I can find out what they're doing.
4. I stockpile the $1 pregnancy tests just so I can take them for fun (even though I'm pretty sure I'm not pregnant) whenever I feel any possible pregnancy symptom.
5. I hate when people turn off their cars when their windshield wipers are still on.
6. I listen to kid's music even when the kid is asleep sometimes just because I like it.

That was hard. I asked two other people to think of some weird things I do, and both immediately said, "You have worms living in your basement!"

I think you are pretty weird.

Hee! - I do the Google thing too (and sometimes with old boyfriend's names).

Hope you are having a safe trip home. Being back home is always nice, no matter how great the visit was.

I do a few of those things myself.
Annie is like our bb so of course I feed her off the spoon too :)

You ARE weird!

Hmmm, I'm gonna have to think on it for a bit before I respond to being tagged.. I am SO normal (HA!)

I may have a weird quirk or two but thinking of letting a dog eat off my fork is making me sick! We loved having you and your family here.

I was just reading a similar meme going around the vegan knitting blogs...Thanks for tagging me, although the zest of it is taken out by having read the story of that poor dog... :(
