Pin It I realize that naming this section of my site, GET OFF YOUR BUTT AND WRITE . . . has simply failed me . In fact, a few people that shall remain nameless (Berta ) have reminded me tactfully of this fact.  I think I’m grateful for a life too boring to write about!  Days back, weeks ago . . .well at least a year ago, I was tagged.  It’s genealogy people, and I dismissed it and played too busy to respond.  I’ve not been tagged since.  It’s my procrastination punishment.  This was it, genealogy that must be recorded and written down for future lineage of Jonna.  Poor souls . . .

Jonna – ology

1. I try everyday to eliminate sugar from my diet.  Every day has been a head hung failure.

2. I’m at peace when I’m home. I don’t like crowds. In fact, I’d rather not leave the house at all.

3. I’m 9 years younger than my sweet husband.  This is good – he can never call me OLD!

4. I have a nervous habit…I can’t stop wiggling and tensing my toes. I also realize how weird that must sound. By evening, I feel like I have shin splints up my legs, and NO…..this does NOT stem from my childhood. 

5. I love a clean house, and clutter makes my skin crawl. I’d rather clean toilets than do yard work.  Feel free to use my toilets, cuz they are clean.

6. I play the piano, and taught lessons for years, taught dance and I also owned a hair and nail Salon. You’d never guess that by looking at my own pathetic hair and nails.  (I must do something with my heels as well . . . crap . . . spring has sprung.

7. I own leathers, and ride on the back of a Harley! Nope, never thought I’d do that in a million years, but enjoy it. We’ve gone on many 10 day trips at a time. It’s a little hard on the backside. I hate the helmet . . . after a 10 day trip my hair has been virtually rubbed off!
8.  I’m almost fifty!  (that is half way to one hundred)  One day I will tell you the Good the bad the ugly.
9.  I’d rather buy a new lawn mower than go to Hawaii . . .sad but true.
10.  I’ve been married almost 31 years, to the same man.  He thinks he can read my mind.  He can . . . I hate that!  Love him still.

Yes – A softball size tumor from my neck when I was 6 mo. pregnant with my 2nd baby. She’s very lucky to have lived through that very long surgery.  My uterus, one ovary and four baby girls.  Not in that order! Oh yes . . . I had a mole (like Cindy Crawford’s) removed from my face. Bad Mistake, it just left a scar instead! The things you do for vanity. I should have kept it. Now I just look like I have a hair lip.
What was the last heavy item you lifted?  Six bags of water softener salt from the Walmart shelves to my cart.  Then . . . from the cart to my car, then from my car to my garage steps, then from the steps to the basement.  Six times!

Had they been big….they would be sagging by now, and they’re not . . . Nothing to sag. Take that you big boobed woman out there!  So…..I would have a little lipo on the thighs.  I certainly wouldn’t be making my lips look like a swarm of hornets attacked me.

Does the future make you more nervous or excited?   My life right now is good . . . I’m blessed, so I rarely look too far ahead.

Do you have an accent? I don’t think I do. Just a frog in my throat.  He lives there permanently.

Do  you cry easily?  Heck NO. . . my husband would tell me to Buck up!

Plans tomorrow? Maybe piloting a bailer for my husband… doesn’t that just sound like loads of fun?

    LOL! You are a hoot! Loved this!!!!

    I just about peed my pants when I read this:

    “How many pairs of flip flops do you own? 2 pair – That reminds me . . . a couple of weeks ago, the prayer giver in Sac. mtg., flip flopped her way clear up to the podium. It was flipping annoying! ”

    YAY! Someone else who thinks the same as me about the inappropriateness of flip flops at church! ; D

    Mom you are just hilarious! I loved reading that so much. Some of them I could have pinpointed, and some threw me for a loop. I love how you added humor to most of them…and then it made me emotional when it asked you what you looked forward to. I hope Grandpa is feeling better as!!! I will try and do this asap. I wish that you would do more posts like this. I love reading your answers. I just think your amazing! Maybe for your 31 anniversary, dad will let you get a new lawn mower. I think you need to do a post about the little Honda. That would be something hilarious for everyone to read! I love you mom!

  • Jonna, you have a terrific sense of humor. I try to write anything witty and I end up feeling like a big dope! 🙂 Thanks for sharing!
