25 Random Things That Make Me Holler

Plenty of things make me wanna holler --- both good and bad. Rather than put down 25 random things on my Facebook page so it can come back to haunt me during an interview, I decided I'd be different (like every other blogger out there) and put a spin on things by listing the 25 random things that Make Me Wanna Holler:

1. My kids throw my throw pillows all over the house --- mostly on the floor.

2. Circuit City, Wal-Mart & White Castle.

3. Shopping on a Saturday afternoon with the rest of the human race.

25. No matter how many football, baseball and basketball games I go to (all of them), no matter how much I pick up the kids (all the time), no matter whether I take off work to stay home with babygirl when she's sick, no matter how understanding or how tough I am with each of my offspring, no matter how much I bust my you-know-what to be the you-know-what to my kids, the first question these two monsters ask me is always the same question: "Where's Mommy?"

Tag --- all of you are "It".
