Favorite things in life: ManOfTheHouse and my five kids. If you want me to pick a kid of the day - just pop a message on Twitter (@TisforTonya) chances are at least one of them is spending the day in the doghouse.
How I view this blog... it's my outlet mostly. Yes, there is the occasional review post - for things I am passionate about... I love to share things that make me happy, or at least that make me laugh!
I also have that "other" blog where I blather on about all the books I read... whatallthekidsarereading.blogspot.com - and I make an attempt to be less snarky there.
How I spend my "down time" - well, assuming "down time" means when the computer is off - that's mostly filled with reading. If I can't come up with ANYTHING else I might do the dishes and the laundry... might.
Pet Peeves: horrendous spelling, blatant self promotion, whining, kids who drag their pets into my house and think I'm evil because I usher them out with a slam of the door, and people who mispronounce the word "nuclear"... Judgmental people? nope, I kinda like them...
Where I write from. Physically,emotionally, or spiritually?
Physically I hang out in the extreme Southern edge of Utah. I can be in two different states within a matter of minutes... and yet usually I just stay here at home. Does that make me a "homebody"? I'm good with that. Emotionally? I write from the perspective of your average mom. Okay, maybe not "average"... since I have more than my fair share of snark and I'm clearly of the mind that it is healthy to admit when we're about to implode.
Spiritually? I actually DO consider myself a spiritual person. I faithfully attend church each week and love that I live in a free country where my right to worship is protected. I rarely blog about my church - because lds.org will answer any questions you have better than I can. I hope that at the end of each day I can be a good example of the kind of person God would like for me to be.
Do I really expect this "About Me" page to stay the same forever and ever? Yeah, I don't stay the same from minute to minute - doesn't give this page much hope for longevity does it? You want to know something? Just ask about it in comments... :)
