Catching up with Hausfrau

Life has been nothing short of insanity here at Hausfrau Haus. I have been working on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays in Central NJ and working from home on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The project will last until December, and then I will probably take a break and start painting my bathrooms because, well, my life is exciting that way.

While the work and the money have been great, I have been left with no time to catch up on my favorite blogs. And my blog, forget about it! There are no adorable photos of the girls from Halloween. There are no posts period. It wasn't until I got an email from Andie this morning that I decided to get my ass in gear. What better way to catch up on my end than with a meme? Here goes!

Know Thyself Meme

What is/are YOUR:Easy how-to ways to beat a bad mood?
There is no such thing as an "Easy" way to beat a bad mood. That said, I don't typically stay in a bad mood for prolonged periods of time. I'm usually OK once I have exploded and then removed myself from the situation.

Never-fail lip color?
I tend to go the Kiehl's lip balm route. Their tinted stuff is pretty good. I used to wear MAC and Lancome lipsticks in brownish shades BC (Before Children).

Names of the trees in your yard?
We have a ton of trees. We have pine trees in the back yard and a couple of maples. Our township planted cherry trees in everyone's front yards about 40 years ago. No one can cut them down or trim them without township approval. It should be beautiful this spring.

Mother-in-law's favorite flower?
I have no idea. However, I know her favorite cake is pineapple upside down cake. Does that count for something?

Three people you will tag:

I will tag Stephanie, June and Kara.

I am going to work a lot harder after this weekend to write more. Hopefully there will be much to write as I will have returned from my surprise trip for Herr. We leave tomorrow. He doesn't know. Shhhhh!

So good to "see" you!! I've been wondering about you...

(I don't know my mil's favorite flower, either. And I fear I might end up making a snide comment when I do this meme per Andie's request - only because I love me some Grumppopotamus.)

Surprise trip! I can't WAIT to hear about it!!

Andie D. said...

Welcome back! Ish.

Why the surprise? What's up? Where to?

Melissa said...

So happy to hear from you again. Have fun this weekend. Where did you decide to take him?

Oooooh I love cherry trees, what a neat thing.

I hope YOU'RE driving--- no more accidents. You scared the hell out of me today. Have fun!!!

L. said...

Hope your trip was fun!

You`ve made me feel better, because I was feeling guilty that I hadn`t checked in here in a while -- so I was delighted to see you hadn`t posted, and I wasn`t missing anything! Yaaay!

wordgirl said...

Have a safe and fabulous trip. And...come back with some pictures.

Candace said...


Okay, I'm not telling. I hope you take pictures of the cherry trees in the spring. It's going to be quite lovely.

Kara said...

June, I did tell Dawnan after she was making me nervous trying to cross the street "One accident, per week, per family"

Corey was a champ even with his owies!
