A Meme. A What?!

And now for a meme . . . {what's a meme?} I found this on a blog to the left, Mrs. B I think, and I'm a sucker for these things ~ but why is it called a meme?!

Four things I did today:
1. Left my cute little car at the fix-it-please shop, then had my Sweet Man drop me off so I could help a friend at her boutique for 8 hours.
2. Sweet Man and two of our grandsons picked me up at 6 pm and we went to Applebee's for dinner, where one ate all the cheese sticks and the other ate whatever he could reach. For dessert, we shared a Triple Chocolate Meltdown, where two of us ate only ice cream while the other two ate the cake and the leftovers on the table.
3. Came home, put a load of clothes on to wash, built a small city with kiddie blocks; read several kiddie books, several times; watched too many kiddie shows; cleaned up a toy strewn room; rocked one to sleep while watching another kiddie show ~ so much for adult conversation, but oh, the snuggling time. {okay I KNOW this is more than one. so sue me.}
4. Finally wrested the computer away from my Sweet Man and got him busy watching kiddie shows and laughing with the grandson still up and awake; and did several blogs!

Four things on my to do list:
1. Go out for breakfast in the morning, since I haven't had time to buy groceries for four this week.
2. Go eat lunch at a new place with some old friends and a few new ones.
3. Watch more kiddie shows, build more little cities, read more books several times, maybe go to the pool, and hope a little one takes a nap.
4. Clean up and arrange guest room. It's been a collect-all room way too long! and my weekends are much too short.

Four of my guilty pleasures:
1. Magazines!!! I would never admit to how many I buy in a months time. Shoot! A week's time!
2. Reality shows ~ The Batchelor and Batchelorette, Design Star, Top Chef, Project Runway, Jon & Kate + Eight, Little People Big World, etc etc
3. Eating out. I love it. Simple as that. And I don't mind eating out alone. Just me, good food, a great waiter to keep the tea glass filled and iced, and a book. Or a magazine. And a corner booth.
4. Blogging. Journals. It's all pretty much the same.

Four random facts about me:
1. I have a stupid looking pair of glasses. They are old, old, old, and one arm broke off, AFTER I gorilla glued it back on - so now there's a glob of gorilla glue on one corner of the frame. They sit crooked on my face, so I have to tilt my head to watch TV, but for the life of me I cannot remember to call and make an appointment to get a new pair. No, I will not take a picture so you can laugh and feel better. Just use your imagination, and know that my family laughs until they weep every time I put them on.
2. I love drinking cold cold whole white milk from the jug. So don't visit and ask for milk.
3. Driving on an open road with great music to sing to gives me such a rush. Driving north to Gatlinburg, TN with great music and packed suitcases puts me in a total state of relaxation. And yes, I love to be the one behind the wheel!
4. Although I have no regrets, because it's the past that has brought me to where I am today, and I know all things happen for a reason, even if I have no idea why, a part of my heart will always belong to my high school love, and another piece to the father of my child.

Four bloggers I'm tagging:
1. Haley at Holding Hands and Making Memories
2. Jennifer at Marks Madness
3. Leigh at Graham Shenanigans
4. anyone else that feels so inclined! Leave me a note so I can visit your site and learn about you!

I always wondered why they were called memes too. I'm so happy to know that I'm not the only one that doesn't know. Could it be that it supposed to be a me me, since it's usually a post talking about yourself? That's my best guess.
It was nice to learn a little about you from your meme.
Have a great weekend.
