Checking in From Day 2

Okay, I'm not going to go into details. People don't really enjoy reading about a random toddler's adventure into learning to use a potty.

All I will say is, it has been overwhelmingly positive around here. It's Day 2 and she had zero accidents today, with the exception of one major one right before bed. And it was the worst kind of accident if you know what I mean. But otherwise, she's a rock star and she's my favorite and I'm just mega proud of her.

But enough about that.....

I've been trapped here for 2 days now and I've been pretty bored. So I'm asking you to entertain me. I'm asking questions. I want answers. Seriously, answer my questions. Whether it's in the comments section or on Facebook... entertain me so I have something to read tomorrow while I'm trapped here on Day 3. Please. I beg you.

1. What did you have for lunch today?

2. When do you put on pajamas? After dinner? Or right before you go to bed?

3. What was the first concert you went to?

4. If you were going to just totally own a karaoke performance, what song would you sing? (For the record, mine is and always will be "It's All Coming Back to Me Now" by Celine Dion. There are moments of gold. There are flashes of light.)

5. Coke or Pepsi? And if your answer is Pepsi, why do you choose awful things?

THANK YOU FOR YOUR KINDNESS. Now I can read something tomorrow while I'm under house arrest for Day 3. As a thank you, here's a funny:

Now go answer my questions. Thank ya. :)


  1. 1. Subway Spicy Italian while sitting at a table in a crowded lunch room with Caleb and his 10 friends at the "boy table".
    2. Right after I get home from dropping Caleb off at school in the morning. I'm all for homeschooling in pjs.
    3. Growing up in Houston it had to be the rodeo. I am sure it was probably the Oak Ridge Boys or Charlie Pride.
    4. yeah, I don't sing. LOL
    5. Water is my drink of choice. I haven't had a coke in years.

  2. 1. Def had a prego lunch today: 10 bagel bites and cheddar sour cream baked lays! It was amazing!
    2. Right before bed!
    3. DC talk- Jesus Freak!! And audio adrenaline
    4. Hmm.. Killing me softly
    5. Pepsi all the way!!! It tastes so much better way sweeter!

    Love you!!! So happy day 2 was so good!!!

  3. 1. Since it's 6AM, I'll tell you what I had yesterday. I sat at my deal at work and ate my father-in-law's leftover jambalaya.

    2. It depends on how I feel when I get home. Sometimes it's as soon as I walk in the door, other times it's after I've finished all my mommy chores and I'm ready to relax.

    3. Weezer & Dashboard Confessional sophomore or junior year of high school. If rodeo counts as a concert, then it was Randy Travis in 3rd grade.

    4. My voice is terrible. There is no song that could help me own a performance.

    5. For regular soda, I prefer Coca Cola over Pepsi, but as far as diet sodas go, Diet Pepsi dominates.

  4. 1. A smoothie and a meal replacement drink. Stupid detox.
    2. It depends on what's going on for the night. Last night, it was soon as I walked in the door.
    3. At a theme park, Lee Greenwood. My first real concert was Lynyrd Skynyrd. That is so random.
    4. Introvert here. Never, ever would I do karaoke. I lip sync in church if that's any indication of my vocal talent.
    5. Pepsi only b/c I love Mt. Dew SO much.

  5. 1. Red beans and rice with turkey for lunch today... that is the plan anyways!
    2. I put my PJ's on right after I get out of the shower. It is normally right before bed, but it depends on the day.
    3. First concert was Christina Aguilera if we aren't counting the rodeo.
    4. Big Butts by Sir Mix Alot. I am terrible at singing and you don't really have to sing in this song. My go-to every time for sure!
    5.COKE!! Through and through!

  6. 1) What I plan to have today for lunch are tacos. I have been dreaming about them since I woke up. Not joking at all.
    2) Normally, I change into PJs about 10 minutes after I walk in the house from work. Ain't no shame.
    3) My first *legitimate* concert was Weezer, and it was the summer before my senior year of high school. (I was a "late adopter" in the concert world.) But after Weezer, I went to a dozen concerts within the next year, including Maroon 5's first concert in Houston and Dashboard Confessional. Haha, I am dating myself.
    4) Always, always, always "Candy" by Mandy Moore. It was MY JAM in middle school, so I still have all the words memorized. Plus, I go ALL OUT when I sing it karaoke-style, and I love the look on people's faces, because many of them can't tell if I'm being silly or serious.
    5) If I want the real deal, I do Pepsi. If I want diet, it's Diet Coke. But, 99 percent of the time I ditch both for Dr. Pepper!

    Good luck on Day 3, Jenny!

  7. Gah. This is my third time to attempt to comment. If it doesn't work, you will just have to wonder about how amazing my answers would have been. (This is not Tim, by the way.)

    1. I didn't eat lunch today. (I KNOW.) I made up for it by making - and eating - chocolate cookies with mint chips. And maybe peanut butter cookies too. The devil made me do it.

    2. I appreciate that you assume I wait until after dinner to put on my PJs. I usually have them on immediately after I walk in the door - if I haven't worked from home (and thus not changed out of them). It's super casual around Casa Crane.

    3. My first concert was Crystal Gayle. For real. There could be no better evidence that I grew up in Texas, I'm pretty sure.

    4. I don't do karaoke. Like, ever. You know those dreams where you're at school naked or whatever? Karaoke is my equivalent nightmare. (This might be a subject to bring up in therapy...)

    5. I don't often drink soda, but when I do, I drink . . . Nope. I don't really drink soda. I DO drink lots of wine, though. Because, that's why.
