On my mind

For Mama Kats writers workshop

A list of ten things on my mind this week (in no particular order)

1. If the neighborhood security guard will ever stop laughing at me since they had to come and show me how to turn off our smoke alarm. You mess up flat iron steak ONE time....

2. If I will be considered the old parent when my kids are in high school since I am almost 32 and still don't have kids yet.

3. How much I miss my nieces and nephews

4. How many seconds would I last before Gordon Ramsey made me cry

5. Do people REALLY think Punxsutawny Phil will predict the weather.

6. Does Ang still want to change her name to Punxsutawny Phil?

7. My grandparents

8. Is it possible I should really be turning 62? I just started a quilting class. No joke

9. When a recipe calls for 1/2C nuts, chopped do you measure then chop, or chop then measure? Things that make you go hmmmmmmmmmm? (for the record, I chop then measure)

10. What makes Sonic Cherry Limeade so addicting?

My mom didn't have me till she was 32 and my brother till she was 34. My ex's mom had him at 42---so you still got time girl :)!

With nuts, I chop then measure.

And Sonic puts crack in all their drinks. That's why!

Glad I got to be the first one here this time :)!

You are a cutie!
And 32 is totally young for having kids these days. It's just us Mormons typically start off once we hit puberty basically.
I'd chop first too.
Loved your list.

MMMM Cherry Limeade! I going to get one right now!
Loved your list. I always wondered about the nuts too.

I think people are having kids way later than they used to. I'm 28 and have a toddler, but everyone in my daughter's class at daycare has parents older than me. At least in their thirties. So you'll be fine.

Visiting from MamaKat's Writers Workshop...

#4: I think Gordon Ramsey would make me cry in about 4.5 seconds.

#5 and 6: How hard was it to type "Punxsutawny" twice?

#9: Got nothing for you there.

#10: Sugar, sugar and more sugar. I love the grape ones -- even though they cause non-stop brain freezes. Thank God I don't have a Sonic near me!

Well, I still love the name, but I'm afraid it would be to hard to spell out on everything. I don't even know how to spell it. Did you have to look it up?? Miss you!

I'm just going to be honest, you will be the 'old' mom. My 10 year old thinks I'm the 'old' mom and I'm only 20 years older than him.

p.s. how about sending some of your warm weather my way?!!!!?

I love Gordon Ramsey (he would still make me cry too) and you chop and then measure :)

I loved your list!! Made me smile. Thanks for stopping by the blog. I love to hear from new people. This is a great way to meet people. i'm not much of a cook (rather I don't really like to cook) so I'm not going to tell you either way about the nuts. But I do know that my sister had her first baby at 32 and another at 34. And I agree with the other Heather your kids will think you are old at some point no matter what. Sad but true. Maybe this will brighten your day My boys saw a picture of me when I was in 5th grade and I had really short hair and they looked at me in surprise and said "MOM YOU USED TO BE A BOY?" Oh the joys of motherhood!:) Makes me laught everytime!!!:) Nice to meet you. Heather

Angie said...

Happy early birthday Carrie!! I miss you and love you!

You've got plenty of time. In fact, if you want I can have a baby and just send it to be raised by you?? In fact I have three that would be great candidates...plus a room full of daycare kids??

Sorry I was bad about getting around last week!!
