Too many names

Everytime I grab my group of Kindergarteners to take them to speech, I hear the same thing:

Kindergartener #1:  Ms. Speech, Ms. Speech! Hi Ms. Speech!
Kindergartener #2:  It's not Ms. Speech.  It's Ms. Queeng.

And then when I tell them I'm really Ms. King, I get this reaction:

"But you're not the king of the world!"

Tag team

Wow this has been a popular tag lately.  I guess I'll join the crowd.

10 years ago: 
I was 15, playing volleyball and basketball in high school.  This was about the time I dropped a curling iron on my leg when I was on the region basketball trip.  We were in Price, Utah and I ended up going to the emergency room with second degree burns.  I missed the tournament.  Lame.   

5 things on my to do list today:
1.  Work.
2.  Work again.
3.  Eat cereal and toast with butter and honey for dinner.
4.  Do nothing but watch tv with my hubby all evening.
5.  Be in bed by 10:30 pm.  
Wow.  Again--LAME.

Snacks I enjoy:
Well, cereal is my favorite meal and well as my favorite snack.  But lately I also love graham crackers with cool whip and Wheat Thins with cottage cheese.  Yum.

If I were suddenly a billionare:
I would like to think I'd do something awesome like buy a thousand boats and have one on every lake in the world, so no matter where I went I could go boating.  Or that I'd take awesome trips to places like Utah so I wouldn't be left out when all my friends had a party without me (sniff).  But really-I know I'd be super boring and invest it all.  And since I know nothing about investing, I'd probably lose it all as well.  (P.S.  Josh would say that he'd spend it all on RC cars.  Blech!)

5 Places I have lived:
1.  Manila, Utah
2. Logan, Utah
3. St. George, Utah
4. Tempe, AZ
5.  Preston, ID

3 Bad habits:
1.  Leaving cupboard doors/drawers open
2.  I crunch foods like crackers and carrots really loudly.
3.  Sometimes I talk too much and really fast and really loud.  

5 jobs I've had:
1.  Waitress at Flaming George Cafe and Motel
2.  Cable TV/Satellite dish installer.  True story.  I would even go up in the bucket truck and fix the cable lines on the telephone poles.  
3.  Lunch Lady at the Hub at USU (really I was the cashier, but Josh called me the Lunch Lady)
4.  Worked on farm in Logan.  Dang I was tough!  He he.
5.  Speech therapist

5 things people don't know about me:
1.  I lose my keys in the couch almost every day. 
2.  I sometimes cry during Hallmark commercials. (but only the REALLY good ones)
3.  I have three crowns and I'm getting close to getting my fourth (yeah, I'm only 25.  Two of them are from when I knocked my teeth out on my eigth birthday, though.  Not my fault!)
4.  I have to choose my outfit for work the night before otherwise I can't get to work on time.
5.  I've been stuck on this question for about an hour now, so I'm either really boring or really open about myself.

And I tag-any of my friends who haven't done this one yet, which is like one.

And I don't eat meat, cause I'm a veterinarian....

So yesterday at work, our office manager (she's 19) told me there was a new patient I needed to evaluate.

OM: Oh, and she's a vegetarian.
Me: Um, OK...(and that relates to speech therapy because???)
OM:  You know, she's like in a coma or something.

Oh, right, that's what it is.  It would be funnier if this weren't her first blonde moment.  When she first started working, she asked me Michigan was the capitol of Utah.  Ha.

Growing up, I had a cat named Snuggles

When I was about eight, there were two things I tried to change with Snuggles: 

1.  Her name.  I wanted her to be Mariah.
2.  The direction her fur grew. 

So I would pet her fur in the opposite direction all day and call her Mariah.  All that happened was she started shedding a whole lot more and got really staticy (?).  And she didn't even acknowledge her new name.

Josh and I were laughing about this story last night, so I decided to share.    

I wish I were in Utah right now...

snowboarding with all of my friends.  I haven't even been one time this season!  I flew up last year and had pretty much the crappiest snow day of the year.  I basically ruined my board, so I decided it wasn't worth it this year.  (sniff).   And now I'm so sad...
I made No-Bake cookies for my Sunday School class today.  And all of my class said they were the best No-Bake cookied they'd ever had.   Wahoo!   I don't know why I like to be complimented on my cooking so much, but I was smiling through the rest of the church.

Josh says I can't drive anymore...

And I don't blame him at all. Today I got my fifth flat tire in less than a year. Fifth. FIFTH. Absolutely ridiculous. I survived the first eight years of my driving career with none. And now this. It's not my fault either. Am I supposed to see those nails on the freeway and swerve to avoid them? Ok, I probably should have stopped when I heard a strange sound, instead of driving five more miles on the freeway with a flat. You think I would know how to recognize a flat by now.
