I’ve been tagged again, I know, like Oh. My. God. can you totally not believe it or something?
But I have.
This time by Jordan over at mamablogga. Tag taggity tag tag.
4 Life meme
at least that’s what I’m calling it.
This is another one of the sharing memes. In this one we are asked to share in 4’s. 4’s! What a refreshing change from 10, 8, 7, 6, 5. (Why don’t you ever see a 9 meme? Now that would be different)
So to start off, 4 things new to me, to my life, in the last 4 years.
My house: Though it isn’t new (nearly 80 years old) it is new to my family. 3 years ago we moved into this house and it changed our lives.
Contentment: I’ve been happy for many years now which is a great changed from the up down turn around of my younger years but contentment with myself and my family is something that has really only been with me for the last couple years. Living in this house, being back in the city, watching K as a person and settling into life with my best friend has been liberating. (ohhhh I just love him soo much smoochie smoochie why don’t you marry him I DID mwahhhahahaha) (sorry).
My Rebel: When K was really little she was so clingy. So needy. So always up in my shit. In the past 2 years she has become so much more laid back, fun and, you’ve got it, rebellious. It’s refreshing to see that spark of independence in her. And to be able to shower with the door shut.
My other Rebel: My Canon Rebel. I love my camera. It allows me to capture moments in time with my family and in my city. Most of the photos you see on this site are taken with my little pocket digital camera that never leaves my side, but when it is time for a real picture I turn to my Rebel every time.
And now 4 things to strive for in the next (you guessed it) 4 years:
No more remodels by 2011: Bathroom finished? Check. Kitchen finished? Check. Other bathroom finished? Checkaroo. Backyard done? Yes siree. Any other work on the house. ALL DONE. Okay?
School: How much school? I don’t know. Some though. My first class starts in a week or so. I am just glad I’m getting to it.
School again: There are some things Mr. Kaos wants to learn… I think he should.
School take three: There are 3 of us in this household and I think we all have some learning to do. With K starting elementary school this year I look forward to being able to help her do her best. I want her to enjoy school in a way I never did and I will do anything I can to facilitate that.
Oh and the tagging, oh the freakin tagging…
Rebel rebel… I tag no one. Though If you’d like to do this meme feel free, let me know so I can check out your memeing prowess.
Otherwise I’d love if you would each leave one thing new to you in the last 4 years (or one thing you look forward to in the next 4) in the comments section.
Unless you’d rather I turn into the mad tagger and put the smack down on all of you.

No! not the meme smackdown!new to me in the last 4 years, uhm. Jack, my off the hook crazy black cat.Coming within the next four? Getting qualified as Critical Care registered nurse. More education, more initials after my name. . .
I who swore that I would never get married – got married to the best thing that ever happened to me.
The only thing I can think of that made a big or any difference in my humdrum life in the last four was my daughter’s marriage (missed her wedding though) and being there for the birth of my grandson. It was dejavu – kind of – because I was there for the birth of my daughter! Way kool or what! :-)
I don’t have a blog, don’t plan on starting a blog, so good luck on the tagging part. Hah! But just to be a team player (cuz I do that so incredibly well) I’ll play along. But forget 4 years, mine are all within this year.New in the past year…that would have to be the new bambino, of course. And the fact that we are now trying to juggle the activities of a family of four with one car. Yes, just one car for four people, and it’s not even a SUV or minivan. It’s a Prius. So we also get to feel smug about the gas prices too :).New in the next year: I get to be a single mom for 10 freaking weeks this summer while hubby has a sabbatical in Spain. Yay. I’m so excited. You ready for a lot of visits Ms. Kaos? And get the drink blender ready while you’re at it.
Question: My Google account I’m using says I should be “LaRousse”, which would make a lot more sense for those who know me (since LaRousse would mean the redhead for those not up on their French). So why-the-heck am I showing up as “la”. I don’t really want to be “la”. Sigh.
Those were all awesomeand LaRousse: I am suddenly all excited about your hubby heading off to Spain. I’m working on a new rasberry blended drink just for us!!!
I don’t mind reading other peoples’ tags, but yes – thanks for not calling anyone out. Especially not me. :)
