You're it!!

Ok, I've been tagged by my buddy Christy for this 24 hour thingy. You list something significant, or not so significant that occurred at each hour at some time in your life.

12:00 (midnight)--at this hour, I'm most likely finally getting to bed and I'm usually up (for the first time, not the last) to check on which kid was doing that weird cough

1:00 --I'm usually up again. I don't think I've slept "through the night" since Madison was born.

2:00 --hmm. Hopefully I've been able to sleep maybe a full hour without the kids coughing, sneezing, making strange breathing sounds, or with Matt accosting me from the other side of the bed. . . sorry, you probably didn't want to read that, but hey, I'm here to give the facts.

3:00 --this is the hour with all of my preganacies that I was up to go to the bathroom

4:00 --this is the hour that my family usually is up 'til when we get together. We stay up all night playing games, cards, etc. Sometimes we fall asleep between turns. . .

5:00 --I've probably been up a few times in a panic that I've overslept

6:00--on February 1, 2001 Molly Sue entered the world at 6:50am. She was about 5 days late, but when it was time, she came fast and furious.

7:00--just two years and 1 day earlier, Madison Mary Jill Mar entered our world at 7:56. She was 2 weeks early and caught everyone by surprise.

8:00--I'm a dental hygienist and also a faculty member at the UNMC College of Dentistry, this is the hour that clinic begins, hmm, do I want to be a nice instructor today???

9:00 --Madison starts school at this hour. I think 8 am is WAY too early for school to begin. I'm a product of afternoon kindergarten and I like it that way.

10:00--everyday this is when my stomach starts growling. Time for a little snack.

11:00--Whitney Afton Carolyn Mar came along just this past March 14th at 11:43.

12:00 (noon) --umm, anyone want to go out to lunch??

1:00--Matt and I were married almost 11 years ago at the Salt Lake City Temple during this hour.

2:00 --time to catch up on the laundry and see what's going on in the celebrity world with EXTRA! (Ok, it's yesterday's show, so I guess I'm a day late on the news.)

3:00--the attack of the kids. Molly is done with preschool and Madison is done at 3:38 (an odd time, I know) from her day of 1st grade.

4:00--If I missed Oprah at 3pm, I can watch it again!!

5:00 --No clue what to fix for dinner. Deciding what to have is one of my least favorite things to do. . .

6:00--hopefully by now the kids have been fed something.

7:00--Ah, that blessed hour of the beginning of prime-time!!

8:00--during the school year this is the hour that hopefully my kids are headed to bed (if I'm lucky!)

9:00--on the nights that Matt works late, this is when he supposed to be heading home

10:00--many nights, this is when Matt finally gets home. This hour is usually busy since the kiddos are asleep and I can run around and get all my things done. Matt and I catch up on the day, and watch some tv.

11:00--hopefully by now I'm headed to sleep, usually one of the kids has been fussing up or by now, but hopefully is back to bed for the night.

Ugh, that made me tired. I've been tagged by Lisa for another little ditty, so I'll get around to that maybe tomorrow. Good night my blog friends.

That is like a snapshot into WendySue!!

Is the name Afton significant? I have a friend named Afton and you don't really hear it that much....

It certainly is significant. . . all of my kids have family middle names. Matt's middle names are both of his grandfathers (James and Gordon). So Madison has Mary and Jill (both of our mothers), Molly got my middle name, Sue, and Whitney has 2 of her Great-Grandmothers (Afton, my mom's mom--I was the closest to her of my Grandmothers, and Matt's mom's stepmom Carolyn). You don't run into too many Afton's, you're right. The only other one I've heard of is the child of a guy I grew up with, I think one of their grandmothers names was Afton too.

I forgot to write that we figured with a little short name like Mar, we could get a little fancy with the middle names. Except for Molly, but hers just fits her so well. Molly Sue, no fuss, no muss.

Christy said...

I got my mom's middle name and my sister got none. They figured she could just use her maiden name when she got married...and she doesn't even want to get married!!! She would make up all sorts of middle names when she was in school and fill them in on the bubble sheets for those standardized tests. In grade school she was Lisa Nicole a lot. In high school she was Lisa Lakeisha. What a nut!

Thanks for blogging! It made my day. :)

word: iompa. It just makes me happy knowing that in a few short days I'll probably have the Charlie & The Chocolate Factory DVD. If I don't get it, I have permission to go and buy it ASAP. YEAH!

Oi! I never had a middle name and always wanted one. Now I do (maiden) but I still feel cheated.

Also, it cheers me to no end that you have an Afton running around. I love that name. It's on the short list. One of my Laurels last Sunday wouldn't give up her middle name. Finally she said "Afton" and I honest to goodness squealed, "I LOVE THE NAME 'AFTON'." Then I remembered that I'm the adult (blah) in the room and got ahold of myself.


Bek said...

Wow, who knew? The Afton that I know is 28. I imagine it is a family name, but am not sure.


It is a name that is hard to place a reference to. You know how some names sound 80's or ethnic, or nerdy, etc. Afton is one that most people wouldn't have any background with, it is short and easy to say and it doesn't have an obvious cultural tie (although it sounds like a Latin name to me? Am I crazy?). Cool.
