7 random things about moi

Mindi did a 7 randoms things tag the other day. I've done this tag several times before, not to mention I'm always talking about random stuff, but I thought I'd throw it out there again... Feel free to play along.


  1. When I put the dishes away after washing them I put the clean plates under the plates that are already on the cabinet shelf. I don't want to use some plates more than others.

  2. Sei says the word "cupboard" but I call them "cabinets." I think of an old lady when I hear the word "cupboard." Old Mother Hubbard went to the cupboard...

  3. Today my ring tone on my phone is "Step by Step" by NKOTB, just FYI. Yesterday in the grocery store 1st Sei called me and it played "Always and Forever" from Napoleon. Then 5 minutes later I hear "I'm a goofy goober ROCK!" because Tristan was calling me. I may have been imagining it, but I think people looked at me funny.

  4. I taught Taj how to call 9-1-1 the other day. Now he's constantly telling me "If a bur-ga-ler breaks in and hurts you I will call 9-9-1." Let's hope if that happens he dials the right number...

  5. Livie has slept in her toddler bed all week- not her crib. And what's funny is she WILL NOT come out of her room when she wakes up. She just starts her music cd over again and lays there talking to herself. Then when I come in she says, "Can I come out??" I ♥ it!! When I went to get her this morning she was laying there with her feet in the air with my high heels on and singing. Another plus- she lays down for bed by herself. I don't have to lay in there for an hour getting her to sleep. It's so awesome.

  6. Taj learned to ride his bike without training wheels last month. I meant to tell y'all that a long time ago and just spaced it. My bad. When he was learning he would say over and over, "Focus. Focus Taj. Focus." :)

  7. Several times when people have asked how I spell Taj I've ended up seeing them write "T-H-A." I guess "T-A-J" sounds like "T-H-A." However, "Tha" does not sound even remotely close to "Taj." But whatev. Speaking of how Taj sounds, when I was pregnant with him and told my sister and BIL we were planning on the name Taj, my BIL said "It sounds like you're hocking a lugie." (Is it hawking or hocking?) Anyway... maybe he would have liked "Tha" better?? :D

And there you have it- 7 random things!! YAY!!! And to top it off- a random picture of crop circles. I asked Isabel for a random word to help me think of a random pic. She gave me the word "crops" or "horse supplies" to choose from. I chose "crops." :P

I remember the days of having to be in my kids' room while they went to sleep. I'm so glad to have most of that behind me! Except for baby B they will all eventually go to sleep on their own, although we have found that if we read scriptures to them while they are in bed, they will fall asleep REALLY fast. Hmmmm.
9-9-1! Call 9-9-1!

Too funny. I love your random thoughts. :)

JC said...

Don't knock the lugie. It's an easy way to remember how to properly pronunce his name.

Klin said...

I think it's hucking a logie, but I don't do it so I could be off.

Yay for Livie. I especially liked that she had your high heels on AND asked for permission to "get out!" LOL

I tagged you. #1 would be a repeat, but would fit in :P

I hope Mason potty trains like Taj and transitions to toddler bed like Liv!! Lucky duck.

Mindi said...

playing catch up here, and my google reader is loading at the speed of cold molasses, so i'm lumping it together:

your "soundtrack of my life" post= AWESOME!!! ice ice baby is a friggin' classic and those who dispute can rock on!

i TOTALLY do the same thing with my clean dishes! and get bent when my girls unload and don't do the same thing!! i've never met someone else who does that.

we were meant to be.

I always assumed Taj was short for something. It isn't?

Tori :) said...

Omar-
Nope. Taj is Taj. He was named after an Aussie pro surfer Taj Burrow. What's funny is Steven Tyler (Aerosmith) has a daughter named Liv (which I knew already) and then come to find out, he has a son named Taj! WEIRD.

I'm a cupboard kind of girl, too.

Physcokity said...

oooOOOOoooh pretty crop circles!. I wish I could do that with the grass that grows in my yard...

Oh wait, I don't have either of those. ;)

Hawking makes me think of the bird. I always spelled it hocking...I think it's a matter of personal choice.

Maybe Rock Of Love Tori:) is a truer statement than we realized ;)

*scratches head* did that last part even make sense?

aubrey said...

ha ha..nice crop circles. and i always thought Taj was pronounced differently..so thanks for the clarification. hooray for kids sleeping on their own!

Enjoy #5 as long as you can. Hopefully it will last a long while for you. We have the exact opposite problem here...

Cute post! I liked reading. I'm not looking forward to Noah transitioning into the toddler bed. When Bella transitioned, she ended up waking in the middle of the night and crawling in bed with us. How about a kick in the kidney or a punch in the jaw while you're sleeping?

Noah called 911 last year. He somehow found the landline I keep hidden under the couch. I didn't know he had done it until I looked out the window and there was a cop in our backyard looking in the windows. I invited him into the house so that he could see that we were ok after he told me why he was there. He stayed for quite awhile. I don't think he believed a 1.5 year old had accidentally called 911. Kids.

Help I need a user name! said...

Well, since Liv is in her toddler bed, maybe it's time to start thinking about another one...hmm? :)

Love the crop circles.

If my phone played "Always And Forever" it might just make me cool!

#5 is all about happiness and joy. YAY! :D

#7's hocking a lugie is HILARIOUS!
