7 gracious facts

Sarah tagged me to do this, but I am not going to comply with proper blog etiquette but I will post the facts.  my apologies…

1. My birthday is on January 1 (New years baby!)

2. My middle name is Sarah

3.  I hate IRONING.  I’d rather wash pots and pans than iron clothes. 

4. I am a perfectionist and a stickler for rules.

5. The coolest city I have ever been to is London.  I could be a tourist there for the rest of my life if someone could pay for it.  I think it is so beautiful and all. The second most beautiful city is the mother of all cities, Cape Town, and I lived there for one year.

6.I love cooking.

7. I went to boarding school when I was 9 years old and I loved it.



The host of Fun Monday is Mommywizdom.  The topic for Fun Monday for 7/28 is:

If you were ruler for a day/week/month/year (your choice on the time) you would…

ex…make coffee free to all citizens.  Or you’d abolish the penny.  You may also specify if you’re ruler of the world or just your country.  Have fun with it; be creative.

If you like to dress up, you may also choose to take pictures of yourself in your “ruler” outfit(s) and post them up with your entry.

If I was a ruler for one year, I would start self sustaining programs that would help children in Kenya (I am starting small) better their lives and become responsible citizens of the world, by providing food, free education and medical care to them. I have done it before, in a very small way, but this would give me the resources to do it in a huge way.

I would also work for peace in the world. not sure how yet…

 Please check out what other people would do if they were rulers here.


I have a funny relationship with Redbox, I am not sure whether I like them or I don’t like them.  I let them know that their new release DVD was scratched and so they sent me a promo code.  The promo code was unusually long, armed with it, I went to try again and borrow the same DVD which is no longer a new release but I wanted to see what happened at the end.  I keyed it in and it was not a valid code.  I was so mad.  Calling Redbox is like calling Comcast.  You hold on for an hour before someone gets to you, do they have that many customers and what are people calling them about? so I gave up and e-mailed them and they e-mailed me back, included a comma in the promo code and told me that those were two promo codes…duh! how was I supposed to know.  Now I have another promo code but I am not sure what which movie to rent, any suggestions? Hope you have a grande week!

 Fitness on Friday

This week has not been good, I did not see the door of the gym, I walked though…it has been a very busy week, I have slept very few hours total and I also have been indulging in some junky leftovers from Sila’s party, this is not good. I am so scared of weighing myself, well, I was on a scale on wednesday and it was not looking good (But I never trust those other scales) I had my shoes on too and those shoes weigh like 2 pounds right? I promise that I will have a better report next week. Have a good weekend.
