There Are Three Things You Can Do To A Mommy Blogger — You Can Love Her, You Can Hate Her, Or You Can Totally Confuse The Crap Out Of Her By Tagging Her For A Meme!
Yep, I'veÂ been taggedÂ by Mom and pop CultureÂ (beeyotch!) and -- since I seem to beÂ stuckÂ with the housework from hellÂ -- it's either scream, "No mas, no mas!"Â and throw myself in front of a school a bus (or) submit to the power of three.
And since I would really like to stay around...long enough to see my children grow up...or at least until I learn who the next American Idol will be...**cough**CHRIS ROCKS!**cough**...I choose the later!
(1) Three things you'd like to SEE in your lifetime, whether or not you think it's likely.
1.Â America switching from fossil fuels to wind, wave and solar energy -- as well asÂ an all-out-push andÂ global supportÂ for further exploration of other forms of renewable energy -- in an effort toÂ promoteÂ aÂ cleaner and safer environment.Â We should all "heart" the earth a little more, rely onÂ oilÂ companies a little lessÂ and hang litterbugs by their lazy asses...YES, YOU!...who insists on flicking your butts out your car and onto my windshield...not to mentionÂ tossingÂ your trash out on my front lawn...that's just nasty!
2.Â That finding aÂ cure for cancer becomes a "national priority" andÂ is available, quicklyÂ -- not to mentionÂ within everyone's reach -- but,Â doesn't cost an arm and a leg or nearly as much (though, there is no comparison) as to what so many families haveÂ lost, already!
And I'm totally swiping Liz's third answer and re-post it as mine along with a hearty, "HUZZAH!"
3.Â The Mommy Wars will end for good -- "...women will be able to balance careers and family without a hitch, with the support of flexible workplaces, a government that recognizes the unpaid work that caretakers provide!" --Â in hopes thatÂ women will find a way to finallyÂ make peace...with each other!
(2) Three SPOTs that you have visited that are "must see".
1.Â Washington, D.C.Â -- If you love museums and American history, like I do, this is a definite destination.Â The museums (as well as the National Zoo) are very family friendly, free and -- though the food is not! -- packing a picnic lunch and hanging out at the numerous parks or by the Potomac is a must this time of year!
2.Â New York City -- There is no place (or mindset for that matter) like NYC.Â It's fast, filled with people from all walks of life (some more out-worldly than others) and there is always something to see or do...no matter what the time...and I believe that Frank Sinatra said it best...New York is truly the, "...city that never sleeps!"
3.Â Â EuropeÂ -- My parents are from Hungary, but visiting anywhere in Europe will give you a whole new perspective on life here in America. Â Budapest (Hungary) -- with it's beautiful architecture and delicious restaurants -- will take your breath away and Vienna (Austria) is a lot like NYC -- a lot of bad drivingÂ though a lot less slower paced.Â Europeans are a lot "friendlier" than most people would have you believe...the ones I've met, anyways.Â And if you're a history buff -- like me -- then, prepare yourself...to be overly stimulated...mentally and emotionally,Â as well as physically!Â
(3) Three people you'd like to see RUN for public office and why.
1.Â My husband -- He's smart...he's funny...and when it comes to work and family...he's got a great sense of balance...afterall...he is married to me.Â And that alone is enough to prove the guy deserves a medal, at least!
2.Â Â Any one of myÂ four kids -- because, I swear,Â theyÂ are the cutest littleÂ bunch of bullsh*tÂ artists -- at least onÂ this side of the Mississippi!
3.Â A mom!
