A Meme By Brian

I've been tagged in a meme by oh-so-lovely and GLOWING (she's pregnant and finally spilling the beans about it) Amy @ onesassyfamily.com.  Thanks, Am!

I always consider memes cheater posts because there's not a ton of thought or writing skill I have to put into it.  But I've found that I actually enjoy reading other people's memes and I even kind of like to do them myself.  Once in a while, mind you, not all the time.

Tonight I skipped my 8 o'clock yoga class because William is Special Person of the Week at preschool and the whole posterboard project totally slipped my mind.  Brian and I just finished cutting and pasting and taping and arranging at the kitchen table and all the while I'm thinking that I can totally see my future.  William forgetting about a project he has due the next day and me and Brian scrambling to "help" him finish it.  It's just one of many.

So now it's 8:03.  Missed my class by just a few minutes, darnit, but the kids are in bed and I have a few minutes before I totally wrap myself up in The Bachelor.  And since tomorrow will be a fun day with Brian taking a day off to attend breakfast at William's school and coming to our Early Childhood class, I doubt I'll take any 'puter time so I'm going to auto-post this.  I'm writing it Monday night but you won't see it until Tuesday.

Here's the rules:

1. Thank & Link back to the person who awarded you this. [See above.]
2. Share 7 things about yourself. [I'm changing this up.  I'm having Brian share seven things about me.]

3. Pay it forward to 5 recently discovered great bloggers.  [I'm not going to do that because I'm too lazy.  However if you want to play, let me know so I can come see what you wrote.  And consider having your significant other write it for you for a fun change.]

7 Things About Jenny written by her smokin' hot husband, Brian:

1.  I believe Jenny is a creative person.  I know she wouldn't agree.  She insists I am the creative one of the family.  But when she has to think outside the box, Jenny has some really good ideas.  She is quick-witted and smart.  That's why I keep telling her to write that blockbuster of a novel so we can go to Jamaica.

2.  When she reads, she reads aloud in her head.  I'll give you an example.  Let's say there is a character in a book by the name of Jimmy McMasterson.  I come to that name and quickly think J. Mic or Mic Master and quickly continue on.  Jenny will read and re-read that name and enunciate every syllable in her head as if she were reading out loud.  Needless to say, I read a tad faster than Jenny.

3.  Jenny did a roller blading marathon (a real marathon consisting of 26.2 miles)...with about 1-2 training sessions.  Usually people take a three to four months to work up to that marathon distance.  Not Jenny.  She tells me the race hurt.  Imagine that.

4.  She has an aversion to thermostats, air conditioners, floor heaters, and fans.  Anything to do with temperature.  Cold - put on a sweatshirt.  Hot - take it off. Makes for interesting summers (I hate being hot, let alone smokin').

5.  Jenny has the finest [Word edited it out. Brian obviously ran out of ideas so his mind wandered to where most men's go.  Use your imagination.] in the tri-state area.  She does yoga.  What more do I have to say.

6.  She enjoys her family more than anyone I've ever met.  Not that I don't, but when I have an afternoon to myself I can fill it with games, guitar, piano, movies...hog heaven.  I find a way to give Jenny free time or offer to take the kids away?  She doesn't have it.  She would much rather we spend that time together.

7.  Jenny, much like Bill and Ted, is excellent.  What do I mean by that?  When she engages in an activity or takes on a role she strives to do it to the best of her ability.  Whether that's being a mom, a wife, a project manager, a role model, she really gives all that she is.  Not out of competitiveness or compulsiveness, but just to be excellent at it.
