5 Things Whenever The Heck I Want! Pt. 2

Yeah, today is just happens to be on Friday! Younger daughter has been a little sick this week, so she's still chilling in her PJ's while I do some laundry and browse around the series of tubes. This is how I noticed Jen Tucker posted her Friday 5!

1. What did you last replace batteries for?
The digital camera, because my older child takes it and records video. LOTS of video. To which I'm glad she does it on MY camera, so I can see what she's recording. Which is usually a lot of nothing. Once she had video of weird-shaped ice. ICE!

2. What have you thrown away that you probably could have had repaired?
You know, I've really thought about this, and nothing is coming to mind. I know there are many things I *want* to throw away vs. repairing, but I have a husband who will either repair said item, or throw it in our VERY BIG yard sale pile.

3. Among items in your line of sight right now, what should probably be put in the trash?
Loaded question, since I'm facing our kitchen island, which is always loaded with junk and papers and whatnot. I have fantasies of just opening the trash can on one side of the island, and just shoving everything over and into it. However, what I want to put in the trash even more than everything there, is the basket filled with coupons on the other countertop. I can't even tell you what's in that basket, because it's my husbands. Yes friends- he saves the coupons, not me!

Oh, I really should at least put these chocolate covered pretzels away. Don't have to throw them out, but they are in my line of sight (and within my finger's grasp), and really they should go.

4. When did you last use disposable cutlery while dining in your house?
Early in November when we had friends and family over to see the slide shows from our summer trip. That was really a fun evening. I love having a house full of people!

5. Whose actions cause you to waste time you otherwise wouldn’t waste?
I have no one to blame but myself really. But if I were going to blame anyone, it would be a thing, and it would be Google Reader. Ever since breaking up with Bloglines and transferring my feeds to Reader, I have been hooked. The Google has got me in it's clutches and I succumb to it happily! Gmail, Calendar, Reader... and I even put the new Twittergadget in so I can tweet from my Gmail!

But back to Reader. I can sit there for hours just going through all the news. If you are on my contact list and use reader, then you know this to be true, because I share PLENTY. If you get more emails from me now, it's because I just have to click in reader and email things out. If you don't have me as a contact on Google yet, well, I'm tsdiva so I'm easy enough to find. If you want to see the sort of things I'm sharing on reader, just click on the photo, which is a shot of my reader page!

Google Reader, I wish I knew how to quit you!

You are not the only one who's husband clips the coupons. Mine goes through the newspaper obsessively. He can also tell you which store in the area has the best price on whole, 2%, skim or soy milk (and we have all four in our fridge). He does the shopping, I do the cooking. It sort of works.

Ok that is really funny- because one of the things on the kitchen island is this weeks grocery store ads. In which hubby sits and circles all of the deals so he can plan his weekly shopping.

Isn't it GREAT?
