This and That X 4

Thanks Painted Maypole for the tag on this meme'!



4 Jobs I have had:


  • a pounce-on-customers-as-they-walk-in person at Gymboree (yeah, a bit scary)

  • Nanny

  • Infant teacher

  • Preschool teacher

4 Movies I love to watch over and over:



  • Erin Brockovich

  • Sound of Music

  • The Story of Us (from this movie I adopted a tradition at the dinner table with my kids each evening called High/Low, in which we talk about the best and worst parts of our day...very fun!

  • Parenthood--because it is just SO like that.

4 Places I have lived



  • Memphis, TN

  • Iowa

  • Rudolstadt, Deutschland

  • Maggie Valley. NC

4 TV Shows I enjoy watching. I despise comedy shows and I am not much for drama shows, so here are my choices when I watch TV.



  • The Closer

  • The First 48 Hours

  • John & Kate +8 ( show on Discovery channel about a family with a set of twins and a set of sextuplets--gives me strength to see them go through their daily life as it is with that many kids and know that i have nothing in the world to complain about!

  • Little People Big World ( Great family reality show)

4 places I have been:

  • Paris
  • Venice
  • San Francisco
  • Disney World

4 websites I visit daily ( a tough one for me b/c I am not a web-browser, I do not have enough patience)

  • my email
  • blogs I enjoy reading
  • weather.com
  • Rawstory.com

4 Favorite foods

  • Hashbrowns
  • Romaine salad with sunflower seeds and Ranch dressing
  • Bagels
  • Anything 'soup-like'/ crockpot creations ( I love soups and stews)

4 Places I would rather be ( this one is a bit challenging b/c I am truly happy right where i am right now, but that is probably because the kids aren't fighting!)

  • a beach
  • a cruise
  • on a mountain top
  • can't think of any others!

Ok, so now comes the time to tag and since I am so far behind with this meme' these might have already been tagged!

1)Mitzh,

2)Slouching Mom,

3)Amy's World,

4)Christine

I love rawstory too. I didn't think I knew anyone else who read it (though I don't look at it every single day). Once I started getting news from the internet, I was amazed to see how much is left out of the newspapers.

I liked Parenthood -- especially that toddler who walked around with a pail on his head, bumping into walls, furniture, etc. And no one noticed, LOL!

I'll do it, but it may be a little while. Thanks for thinking of me!

Amy York said...

I'll do it too ~ any excuse to talk about myself :D

Story of Us will be on my list too!!

Oh shucks! I will do this one, but it may take a while. Hope it's OK with you.

Your's really cool! Thank you for including me on your choices!

We do the high/low thing at the dinner table too, although for me it's usually a last resort I pull out of my hat when the kids can't stop bickering. I haven't seen the movie I don't think.

All your jobs were kid related. I am sensing a theme. :)

thanks for playing along - loved learning more about you. and "pounce-on-customers-as-they-walk-in person at Gymboree" is about the most honest job description I think I have ever read. :)

Mmmm, hashbrowns. Even the McDonald's kind (especially those).
