What I Meant to Say and an award

Chief at (Hiding From the Kids) is hosting What I meant to Say today.  SHe has a snazzy new button for the occasion.  See:

So play along and let us know what you really meant to say but held your tongue or bit your lip to keep from saying.
What I said:  To Turbo's teacher when she called about Turbo after his dentist appointment:  Yes he has two abcessed teeth and need four teeth pulled, no I didn't know about it before this, yes we are getting it taken care of.
What I meant to say:  Don't go all judgemental on me, until the kid started to hurt we had no idea that his teeth were this bad.  Are you a dentist?  Shut it with your "you didn't know?"  in a slightly accuatory tone.  As if you're perfect.  We are getting him fixed but it's going to be a process.  Get off your high horse, lady.

And in brighter news:
J.B. over at Purplum's Blog has given me an award.  Too cool.
And as with most of these awards it comes with rules. 
I get to share ten honest facts about myself and then pass it on to five other blogs.  So here are ten things about me:

  1. I am an avid reader.  I'll read almost anything once.  I'll even read the phone book to pass the time, if necessary.
  2. I like country music.  I think some of it sounds awfully similar to the rock and roll of the eighties (yes I am old enough to remember the eighties.)
  3. My hair style has not changed much since college.  The length has but the general style has not.
  4.  I like Scooby Doo cartoons, the old ones, the new ones, just not the ones with Scrappy or the other members of Scooby's family.
  5. I'm a champion procrastinator.  I guess I work better under pressure.
  6. I can watch television shows over and over again.  Drives Nick nuts, he wants something new all the time.
  7. I don't like going to the movies.  The theaters are always cold, my feet end up freezing and it's so expensive.  My living room is a great place to see movies.
  8. I tie knots in my hair.  Nervous habit I have had since I was a baby.  Bruiser plays with his hair too.
  9. My father commited suicide when I was three months old, so I never knew him.
  10. I love seafood, and am sad that we don't live nearer the water so it would be less expensive.  Then I could eat it more often.
Now for five blogs to pass this on to:

I love to read too! Are you on Shelfari at all? I got on there to keep track of my books because I kept trying to read the same book twice without realizing it :mommybrain:
