Fun Meme & A Reminder

Kailani did this meme and it looked like a fun one! Come join in on all the fun and let's get to know one another on a deeper level...LOL!

What kind of soap is in your bathtub right now? Bath & Body Works Pink Grapefruit. Mmmmm. Makes you want to add a little sugar on me! :o)

Do you have any watermelon in your refrigerator? Sadly, no. I haven’t had any all summer long. Now I want one!

What would you change about your living room? Our fireplace doesn’t work, so I would like to get that fixed. It also needs some kind of decor out there. I have a few barn pictures up, but it’s rather bare.

Are the dishes in your dishwasher clean or dirty? Our dishwasher doesn’t work that well, so we keep our school lunch foods in there like chips, Little Debbies and pudding cups. Sad indeed.

What is in your fridge? It’s back to being empty again. I have plenty of condiments though if you wouldn’t mind bringing the meat and salad!

White or wheat bread? I’m trying to be good and eat whole wheat. But I prefer sourdough.

What is on top of your refrigerator? I try to keep it empty for the most part. I have a couple of baskets that the cats like to sleep in.

What color or design is on your shower curtain? Boring! It’s tan with a dark brown trim. Whatever!

How many plants are in your home? I am pleased to say I have two that I received when my father passed away in January. I have never ever, ever been able to keep a plant alive for more than a day so I am so happy!

Is your bed made right now? Sorta. We just put on new sheets and I folded our blankets and they are at the bottom of the bed. Doesn’t really matter because the bed is where I sit out day in and day out. For a few more weeks anyway.

Comet or Soft Scrub? Soft Scrub and a willing child to do the scrubbing!

Is your closet organized? For the most part. It’s not hard to organize jeans and t-shirts. My purses are in order and so are all my sneakers. You know, the important stuff!

Can you describe your flashlight? Who wants to know? It is actually beside my bed and is only four inches long. And you’ll never guess what color it is….blue! And boy does it shine!

Do you drink out of glass or plastic most of the time at home? I prefer glass, but I am such a klutz that my family won’t allow me to have one so I drink out of a plastic cup, preferably blue!

Do you have iced tea made in a pitcher right now? No, but that does sound nice right about now.

If you have a garage, is it cluttered? It’s full of bikes and two Mustangs and lots of car parts. I would have to say it’s an organized mess.

Curtains or blinds? Blinds, because our cats kept climbing the curtains and they destroyed them. Dumb cats!

How many pillows do you sleep with? LOL! I can’t count that high. Be right back to give an official answer……now don’t laugh, but I really do sleep with 18 pillows. They come in all shape and sizes. My therapist calls it my igloo!

Do you sleep with any lights on at night? For some reason I have started sleeping with the television on. I think it’s because I wake up all the time so I watch for a little bit and fall back asleep.

How often do you vacuum? We have several animals and some very messy kids so they sweep at least twice a week if not three times.

Standard toothbrush or electric? Just a standard one. I would probably have too much fun with an electric one!

What color is your toothbrush? BLUE of course!

Do you have a welcome mat on your front porch? Yes I do. It has Noah’s Ark on it. I guess that means you can’t come by yourself…you better bring a friend.

What is in your oven right now? A dead body! Oops, did I just type that out loud? I’ll change my answer to the oven racks.

Is there anything under your bed? My collection of dust bunnies. I probably should start naming them soon!

Chore you hate doing the most? Ironing. It’s too painful to stand right now and I get aggravated. So we’re going around wrinkly!

What retro items are in your home? I really can’t think of anything I have right now.

Do you have a separate room that you use as an office? Yes, but right now it’s too far away from the potty so I am working from my bedroom until I am a little faster. You wanted to know that, didn’t ya?

How many mirrors are in your home? Four. And my oldest daughter usually keeps them busy!

Do you have any hidden emergency money around your home? Not really, but we do have a water cooler jug that we throw all our change in and then cash it in at the end of the year. It can hold several hundreds of dollars. Might want to try it!

What color are your walls? Well, they are supposed to be off white, but with a husband who works on cars they have lots of smudge marks on them! Gotta love those eraser cleaning things! They do work peeps!

Do you keep any kind of protection weapons in your home? Just a ferocious bulldog that will lick you to death until you give her a treat!

What does your home smell like right now? Paint. My husband has been painting the front door.

Favorite candle scent? Mmmm, I love candles! I have one that I just love called pink grapefruit and I have no idea where I got it. It’s not a name brand.

What kind of pickles (if any) are in your refrigerator right now? Right now, none. I have a teenage boy who eats us out of house and home!

What color is your favorite Bible? Teal and it’s light so it’s easy to hold.

Ever been on your roof? Only when I’m pretending to be Spiderman.

Do you own a stereo? Yep and the kids usually have it going. Lately they are listening to Rascall Flatts ALL the time. I’m a little sick of it I must admit.

How many TVs do you have? Two and they are used a lot!

How many house phones? Three. And one of them is an old rotary phone. My kids asked me how to use it…LOL!

Do you have a housekeeper? I am blessed with several right now. And I am sure they can’t wait for me to take back over!

What style do you decorate in? Clearance or hand me downs! I used to be much batter, but after kids and so many pets I don’t bother. I figure once they are all gone we’ll get all brand new stuff for just us two.

Do you like solid colors in furniture or prints? I guess both, but I notice I pretty much pick solids.

Is there a smoke detector in your home? Yes, several of them!

In case of fire, what are the items in your house which you’d grab if you only could make one quick trip? Did you say quick trip? Then I would have to save myself at this point! But if I could actually walk right now I would grab my quilt I’ve slept under for years that my Grandma made just for me. And first I would grab any baby photos I have of my kids. Since they were adopted we only have a small handful and there’s no chance we could get them again. And lastly I might grab a candy bar because I would probably be hungry from all the rushing…lol!

Call me crazy, but I have to wonder about a meme that asks whether you keep money and weapons stashed in the house and then asks what color your Bible is.

Oh, my imagination runneth away with me sometimes!
