The 7 Meme

Steg tagged me with the 7 meme. I said I would go through with it, and it's before Yom Kippur, so I'd like to keep my word. Here goes:

7 Things I Can Do:
  • Walk miles in 5-inch heels
  • Get a whole Shabbos worth of (really delicious) food in the oven in less than an hour
  • Paint a room
  • Help 3 kids with their homework without raising my voice (most of the time)
  • Estimate fever levels to within a degree by touching my kids' foreheads
  • Put off until tomorrow what I could have done today.
  • Read a 300-page book in less than two hours - every word
7 Things I Can't Do:
  • Tinker with my template (thanks Krum, it looks great!)
  • Skip breakfast
  • Brew decent coffee
  • Keep up with old friends often enough
  • Wear anything wool, or anything I didn't cut the tags out of
  • Sit still for more than 5 minutes
  • Deal with work issues when I'm with my kids
7 Things I Hope To Do In My Life
  • Raise happy, well-adjusted children
  • Go on a fabulous vacation, with OrthoDad, without the kids
  • Succeed in never raising my voice
  • Learn to just let things go
  • Never forget to show those closest to me how much they mean to me, all the time
  • Make more time to volunteer in the community helping those less fortunate
  • Live in Israel
7 Things I Say Often:
  • Uh, (usually to make a sarcastic point)
  • It is what it is
  • A bit much (That's a bit much, she's a bit much, that outfit is a bit much, etc.)
  • Flipping (Are you flipping kidding me, no flipping way, you're too flipping much, etc.)
  • Fantastic
  • Let me be clear
  • I don't think so
People I'd like to infect with this meme:
  • Krum (one good turn deserves another, pal!)
  • DB (c'mon, you can spare one post in your jam-packed line-up)
  • RenReb (sorry hon. Feel free to chop and fry peppers with stickers on them instead)
  • GH (if you can drag yourself away from trashing kanoim and older singles long enough)
  • JPT (we haven't heard from you in a while)

Thanks for the mention Mom. Let's see how infectious you really are:

7 Things I Can Do:
-I can't walk miles in high heels. My wife won't let me out of the front door in them.
-Unless you like scrambles eggs, you're not getting shabbos food from me.
-I CAN paint a room.
-Without raising your voice?! Wow. Supermom!
-I can nver tell when the diaper is full, let alone tell fever.
-I'm very good at putting off til tomorrow.
-You name the book and I'll challenge you.

7 Things I Can't Do:
-I'm pretty much in line with you on these, except for the tags thing. Oh, I think I make a decent coffee too.

7 Things I Hope To Do:
-Ditto to all

But as you've noticed, I haven't been putting anything up there. (No particular reason other than just too busy.)

thanks for responding!

Could you get a whole two-day yontef's worth of food in my oven? :-P
"Flipping" is great... i think that might be the best taboo deformation of the F word i've heard. Not as blah as "freaking", not as harsh as "frikking", not as... edible(?)... as "fudge(ing?)", somewhat flippant (heh).

Love your blog! I had my own proud wiki moment today in English when the word Miscegenation was used and even the teacher wasn't sure what it meant. Thankfully last week I was reading about ethnic demographic in different countries and happened to follow some links to get to the definition of that very word.
