Unwanted visitor and a fun tag!

All craft organization has been put on hold for the present time due to a much unwanted visitor, at the way too early hour of 5:00 am, while I was just sleeping away and dreaming of how organized I was going to be!

I woke up to a strange noise that I first thought was the alarm clock and then realized it was the cat in the corner of the bedroom. I quickly retreated to the bathroom, closed the door and said to my husband "I think the cat has something". I stayed out of my husband's way, in the bathroom, while he took care of our unwanted visitor and sent it out the front door. My husband thought maybe the unwanted visitor hitchhiked a ride into the house in my tool storage case which had previously been in the garage. It's on the porch now and I think I'll wait until my husband checks it out and/or finds out how this unwanted visitor really got in the house!

Now, on to more fun thoughts, Amy at Keeping Up With The Schultz Family tagged me for a cute 8 question game. It's always fun to get to know other bloggers.

What was the last thing you ate? Aaahhh, I knew I should have done this before I finished lunch! The last thing I ate was 4 chocolate chip cookies with a cup of coffee-after I had my wrap and some chips.

What is one of your best childhood memories? Playing hide and seek in our neighborhood with all the kids. We had 5 families that lived next to or across the street from each other and base was the telephone pole in the corner of our front yard-fun times!

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you were older? Something to do with fashion. Course if you saw how I looked most days, you'd never guess that!

Do you paint your toenails in the winter? No, not usually. I'm lucky if they get painted in the summer.

Do you watch any reality television? If so, what show is your favorite? Yes, my daughter loves Survivor and Dancing With the Stars so I watch those with her. We also watched Master Chef over the summer. I used to love The Apprentice but haven't watched the new one yet.

What were some of the "trends" when you were a kid? Definitely preppy-that was big when I was in high school-oxfords, fair isle sweaters, penny loafers. I used to have one of those pocketbooks with the wooden handles and you buttoned on different covers to match what you were wearing.

What is your favorite time of the year? Why? Spring-you know summer's coming but it's still not too hot out.
Do you have any hobbies? Sewing, reading, coaching, blogging.

If you'd like to play along, I'd love to see the answers to your questions!

Oh last year when I got my Christmas bins out there was a dead visitor there. I just found out there were two in the garage but my husband did not tell me about them. Gross.. Yeah to your cat for doing it's job. I also wanted to say Thanks for doing the tag.. Great trends and shows..

Things like your unwanted visitor make me really wish I had a man in the house!

Eek, we've had unwanted visitors in the house as well (yes, that's plural). We don't have a cat but we seen one scurrying across the floor one day, and when we set out traps we caught more then one! :o Yuck, I hope they're all gone now!!!
