Meme's Galore

Another school week is over which means I only have 9.5 days of school left. Yay! And I feel the love, peeps, I feel it! My stat counter went over 5,000 hits this week. Of course, 4,892 of those were me checking my blog to see if anybody had commented yet (anybody else check their blog obsessively for comments?), but thank you for checking out this humble work of mine. I love having readers and commenters and YOU! Yes you - the one reading right now - thanks for stopping by. It means much to me (mainly because I am an attention hog seeking validation).

I tweaked my blog name a bit this week because I noticed A LOT of blogs have the word "ramblings" in the title. And it doesn't seem to fit so much anymore. So now I am just Teacher-Mom going mad. Like? Dislike? Give me your feedback - comments, suggestions, or offers of free money and gifts.

Ok, now on to the real post of the day! I've been tagged. First by
Stephanie and then by Maine Mom. *use your best announcer voice* And now, for your reading pleasure, I bring you - Rachelle a la meme!

I don't know why but blogger thinks I can't comment for the past week on your blog! Sheesh.

I feel better thank you. But I love that part were your hubby is 6'8". My husband is 6'7" and all his brothers are taller than him. When we first started dating, I couldn't figure out why I had such a crick in the neck all the time. LOL

Mama Darlin' said...

By the way...I like the new name!

Valarie said...

I like the change anf I check obsessively, but have replies sent to my email, which I already check 30 times a day. Also, if you're using stat counter, you can block it from counting you.

Gabriela said...

I like your new name! It will fit better on the ole blog roll!

Yes, I too, obsessively check for comments.

Rasberries are the best!

ABC Momma said...

It's nice to get to know you. I want to hear more about that cement job. I bet you had a good tan.

Nikkie said...

Thanks for the Tag! I've done the 4 one before, but not the 2 one!

I also check all the time for comments!

Jettara said...

WOW it must be great to have a DH who sounds like a wonderful cook. I can't get mine into the kitchen much and when he does he just complains the whole time. But he is a wonderful cook. I like reading peoples tags. I get to learn so much about other people.

beth said...

Ooohh. Fun tags, both to read and I think to write - thank you. I just got done posting that I was so crazed that I can't focus on anything to write about. These will be great to work on in the midst of everything going on here (we're moving Tuesday). So I'll get them up soon, probably not simultaneously though. Impressive.

Stephanie said...

Oh, when Jay (nickname) is winning at games in mixed company, I always say "Oh, no sex for you"...he gets embarrased too.

I am an "attention hog seeking validation" needing person too. You are not alone.

Thanks for playing! You're awesome!

P.S. If you are in Vernal. My dad was born and raised in the "land of piles-of-crap", as my mom calls it. I am SO sorry.

Dawnyel said...

I like the new name...short, sweet, and to the point.
Since I know where your hometown hubby has been asking me where you went to school....He wants to know if you went to the same school. Anyway...If you don't want to keep communicating thru comments (which doesn't bother me) I have now allowed my email to be on my you could email me! :)
I, too, am a member of the constantly checking my blog for that one of the signs of a blogaholic?? :)

coolbeans said...

I'm always glad for the absence of "rambling" and "random" in blog titles. Even though my first, brief blog home used one of those words in the url.

I think I'm here via Very Mom originally. Hello.

I'm taking your spouse meme. And WOW. He is tall.

Maine Mom said...
