Call it Laziness

This has been all over the blogging community so I don't know who to originally attribute it to so I'm not gonna.

What kind of soap is in your shower right now? I have some sort of flavor from Bath and Body Works but I don't remember what it's called at the moment. I also have a little bar from the Palomar Mountain Soap Company that Jennifer got me for my birthday and I LOVE and I need to order more of because that's my last bar.

Do you have any watermelon in your refrigerator? Nope. No watermelon but I have apples and oranges.

What would you change about your living room? I would change a lot because this is a rental. First off, I'd put in real hardwood flooring instead of the laminate that's in there now. I'd take down the painted paneling and paint the actual walls something other than off-white. I'd take out the fake electric fireplace and put in a real wood burning one. I'd replace the old, single-paned, wood framed windows and put in energy efficient double-paned, vinyl windows.

Are the dishes in your dishwasher clean or dirty? There is one dirty fork in my dishwasher.

What is in your fridge? We just went to the commissary today. My fridge is packed.

White or wheat bread? Either.

What is on top of your refrigerator? My turkey plate, the ice catcher thing for the freezer, and cereal.

What color or design is on your shower curtain? It has blues and greens and it has a flower or leaf print. I don't really remember, lol.

How many plants are in your home? None. I kill indoor plants.

Is your bed made right now? Not really. It's straightened but none of the accent pillows are on it.

Comet or Soft Scrub? Neither. I use 409 for most everything.

Is your closet organized? HA!! Funny. My closet is a huge disaster because the Mister has all of his Marine gear stored in it. If my house was ever under attack, I'd be ready with a Kevlar helmet and gas mask.

Can you describe your flashlight? Yeah. We have two. One is a red Maglite and the other is a gray military issue type.

Do you drink out of glass or plastic most of the time at home? I drink out of glasses when I need a glass otherwise I drink out of the can or the bottle the drink came in.

Do you have iced tea made in a pitcher right now? Regular tea? UGH, YUCK, and ICK. I have Lipton green tea in bottles though.

If you have a garage, is it cluttered? No garage. The last time we had a garage, it was so cluttered a car couldn't dream of fitting.

Curtains or blinds? Mostly window blinds. In all the windows in my house, only three have curtains.

How many pillows do you sleep with? Two.

Do you sleep with any lights on at night? Nope.

How often do you vacuum? It greatly varies. Sometimes, I vacuum 1-2 times a day and sometimes it's once or twice a week. It just depends on how messy everyone's decided to be at any given time or what Hannah has chewed up that week.

Standard toothbrush or electric?Electric.

What color is your toothbrush?It's white.

Do you have a welcome mat on your front porch? We have a mat, but I don't think it says welcome. It was here when we moved into this house.

What is in your oven right now? The oven racks.

Is there anything under your bed? Off the top of my head: We have luggage. I think my hubby's sword is under there too.

Chore you hate doing the most? The laundry. I don't mind washing and drying it but I hate folding it and putting it away. HATE IT!

What retro items are in your home? Nothing that I can think of.

Do you have a separate room that you use as an office? Sort of. The front room, or living room, is basically used as office space. It also has our nasty sectional sofa in it that wouldn't fit in the living room. We're going to be replacing it with two recliners and a couple book shelves in the next month or two. YAY!!

How many mirrors are in your home? Let's see. There's one in both of the bathrooms and the one that's over my dresser. I think that's it.

What color are your walls? Off-white with tan trim. Nice and creative, right?

What does your home smell like right now? Vanilla candle that I burned earlier this evening.

Favorite candle scent? I have lots that I like. I really like apple cinnamon and I don't think that it's Christmas-y. I also like Illuminations' Pound cake, Napa Valley, and Bamboo scents.

What kind of pickles (if any) are in your refrigerator right now? None unless you count relish.

What color is your favorite Bible? Funny question.

Ever been on your roof? Nope.

Do you own a stereo? Yes, but it's one of those home entertainment deals.

How many TVs do you have? Three. We have one in the living room, one in our bedroom, and one in the youngest child's room.

How many house phones? None. We have cell phones only. I don't see the point in paying for both.

Do you have a housekeeper? Yeah, right.

What style do you decorate in? Mismatched?

Do you like solid colors or prints in furniture? Solid colors.

Is there a smoke detector in your home? Yes. In Vermont, when you rent out a house, it's the law that you include a smoke detector and carbon monoxide detector. I'm not sure if that's the case here in N.C. too, but the house came with a smoke detector.

In case of fire, what are the items in your house which you’d grab if you only could make one quick trip? People and animals go without saying. Other things would be photos. Since the '03 fires, I keep all of our photos in one place so that I can get them all quickly. If I had enough time, I'd grab my CPU because it has a lot of pictures on it too.


  1. Umm... about that soap... I think she burned down in the fires. (She sent me an e-mail right after.) I just went to her website and it wouldn't let me purchase. :(

  2. OMG!! That is so sad. I'm really sorry to hear that. I assume since she emailed you, that she made it out safely...

  3. She did. I think it was just her business she lost and not her house. Still sad though.

  4. I think I did this one awhile back.

    I'm with you on the folding laundry. I had a basket full sitting in my den this past week because I didn't want to deal with it. I keep raiding it to get items of clothing.


I love comments. Leave me one. Now.
