Funky 5 Meme

Yesterday I was in a funk. Like in Glee when the kids were feeling like they were going to suck at Regionals, so they broke into song and instead of being in a funk they just got funky and then all was right with the world. (I know that wasn't exactly a complete sentence, but let's pretend were just talking and I said it instead of wrote it, ok?)

Only I can't sing. So my world's not quite right yet, but a better night's sleep and then my 20 minutes with bumble bee socks girl helped. I just can't seem to get the posts rattling around in my brain down onto paper this week. They require a humor that I can't muster up at the moment. So, I'm going to do this meme that the very funky Aussie Lori from Random Ramblings of a SAHM tagged me for. And away we go:

Where were you 5 years ago?
Right here. In this same house. Doing the same thing I'm doing now. Only not blogging about it. We had more money because that was at the top of the housing market and that's the business I'm in, but my stress level was higher. I was extremely busy playing taxi driver for the kids and keeping up with my business. Money is tighter now, and in many ways the business is more stressful, but I have more time to destress, so in the end life is better now. That's a good thing.

Where would you like to be 5 years from now?
In an RV traveling the country and blogging about it. I'm still trying to convince hubby how fun and simplistic this life could be. Guess I'm a trailer park girl at heart.

5 things on your to do list today
  • Get the funk out of this funk
  • Take a shower (it's noon)
  • Do laundry
  • Start prepping the girl's bathroom for paint
  • Clean my bathroom
5 snacks you enjoy
Is this a trick question? Because there's what I enjoy and then there's what I'm settling for in the interest of dropping some weight...most days. So here's both, what I like and what I should substitute:
  • Parmesan flavored cheese nips and wine (chedder flavored rice cakes spread with roasted red pepper hummus...and wine)
  • Chips and salsa (celery and carrot sticks and salsa)
  • Doritos (there's really no substitute for these, is there?)
  • Carrot cake ( I don't know...carrots dipped in low fat vanilla frosting??? I'm reaching here...)
  • Popcorn (this one's guilt free as long as I eat the microwave "light butter" versions, which are actually pretty good)

What are 5 things you would do if you were a billionaire?
Whatever the hell I want! But I'd like to think I'd be generous and kind hearted and start charities that help homeless families get back on their feet or find homes for abandoned and abused animals or fund research to cure diseases that strike children like aids and childhood cancers. And maybe get a tummy tuck.

So here's the 5 people I'm tagging:
Karen from Muffin Fixation
Susie from A Slice of My Life
Ok, so it's only 4.

Have a Funky Day! 
(In a good fun and different...not like "don't take a shower today" funky)

As a man who watches Glee, I am a little ashamed to say that I know exactly what you are referring to.

I do want Mr. Shuster's hair though.

karen said...

I had to laugh at Cheeseboy ... but only a little ... I LOVE Glee but I don't want his hair I just want Mr Schue. Or Puck. Mmmmmmmmmmm ;)

Lori said...

I'm a Fin gal myself. Mr Shue's nice too...

Nothing like music to draw you outta that funk. Bad Funk vs. Parliment Funkadelics are a whole different thing!

BTW, my go to snack is rice cakes w/ Laughing Cow cheese.

Tracie said...

Unknown said...

Oh yeah. I'm all funked out today too.

karen said...

Stop by. Pick up a present :)

Glee is the absolute best. I'm in a funk too, but trying so hard to find my way out of it. Not so much as a funk, as a journey of self doubt. And this is what I love about the blogging world, that you can just go to someone else's blog and know, that there is someone else out there in the world, feeling it.

I saw that episode of Glee it was great deffinalty one of my favirties. The Funk I feel all the time is wanting things I cant have and know ing I have to change that way of life. Sigh. But I loved reading your post and it brought me out of a funk. If I was a billionair I would help a family with assistance with dealing with a loved one with kidney disease, 2. I would buy a house on the beach far away., I would start a motivational company to help people like me, Give alot to my church and charity. (Can't forget God!) My love and support is with you!
