I'm a coconut? You're a coconut!!

Let's do a meme, shall we? Not only to break my posting hiatus, but to proof Elizabeth right. :)

Five Names You Go By: 1. April 2. Mommy 3. Mama 4. Tortuga (spanish for "turtle", my Girl Scout camp name) 5. Coconut (Abbie's been obsessed with coconuts later, and has taken to randomly calling me a coconut, thinking it's the most hilarious thing in the world).

Three Things You’re Wearing Right Now: 1. Purple PJ pants 2. Purple PJ top (2 sizes too big, but makes it easy to nurse in) 3. Uh-oh. Other than my unmentionables which I won't mention, that's it. I don't wear socks around the house, no jewelry at the moment. I put lipbalm on earlier, can we count that as numero tres?

Two Things You Want Very Badly At The Moment: 1. Adult conversation. (Get your mind out of the gutter. I just mean I want to talk to someone about something other than Oswald the Octopus and why we need to wipe properly.) 2. A huge bowl of ooey-gooey, made with REAL cheese, lasagna. This dairy-free thing is starting to get old.

Three People Who Will Probably Fill This Out: 1. Angie 2. rainbowmummy 3. Amy

Two Things You Ate Today: 1. Turkey bacon 2. Leftover chili and cornbread

Two People You Last Talked To On The Phone: 1. My mom, just to chit-chat 2. Isaiah's speech therapist to confirm our home visit this week

Two Things You Are Going To Do Tomorrow: 1. Make paper bag puppets with the kids. 2. Start working on a custom order for a gift set (lovey, bib and burp cloth).

Two Longest Car Rides: 1. When hubby and I drove down to New Orleans, passing through all the coastal states from here to there. 2. My mom, sister and I took a week-long roadtrip up to Canada. I forget how many miles it was total, but definitely a *lot* of driving. Abbie was only 5 months old at the time, but did really well (for the most part... some miles seemed a lot longer than others, though).

Two of Your Favourite Beverages: 1. Sweet tea 2. Root beer and cream soda (it's a tie, please don't make me chose between them)

Two Phrases You Said Today To Your Kid That You Wish You Could Take Back: 1. "Yes, you can have a fruit bar after your nap" - There were no fruit bars left. Oops. 2. "If you don't pick up your toys RIGHT now, I'm going to start putting them all in the trash!" - Bad momma moment. :(

Thanks for being so patient during my spells of infrequent blogging, as well as for your heart-warming comments. They really mean a lot to me. I hope to be able to blog more this week. It just seems either I'm trying to nurse a very wiggly babe (doesn't make for very efficient typing), or the older kids are shrieking and running around, making it very hard to even think straight. In addition, I've been very busy with sewing and working on custom orders. Plus a bunch of other personal stuff, which I won't even begin to get into.

Blah, I'm so tired, I can't think of a coherent way to end this. Nighty-night. ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ, *thud*

Hmmm I was trying to answer the questions whilst reading but went all dizzy! I am tired and had a nasty fight :0(

I am so right there with ya! My hubby doesn't see where the problem is with needing someone to talk to because he's out all day and sometimes I go a week at a time without leaving the
