Another January Blog Challenge Day 4 - A list of your biggest pet peeves and why

Let's see...hmm.... 1. No talking with your mouth full!!! That just drives me nutty not to mention rude and sounds disgusting! And the thing that gets me is that my teenagers have been raise to not do that and they are pretty good about not doing that but the crazy thing is, is that a 44 year old man still can't get it through his stubborn head that its gross! 2. If you have something to say, don't talk behind my back, say it to ME!! Don't go and call someone and talk about me and what you don't like what I do or don't do etc. And don't call someone in MY home and complain and gripe to them when I'm right here in the house!! Say it to ME!! People that talk about others and behind others backs I just don't understand that..if I have something to say I would rather tell that person then go and blab to others how I don't like what they did or didn't do etc. Have some respect and tell the actual person! 3. Fake people...people that act like they ar…

NaBloPoMo Day 4 - At what time of day do you feel the most energetic and productive?

I find that I am the most energetic and productive usually later on in the day...usually in the early evening around 4-6. And at night time around 9-10. Sometimes in the morning I have energy if I have something good to eat and my caffeine..and other days I just feel blah in the mornings and it takes me awhile to get up and get going. And I find that it also depends on the temperature and how the weather is outside, like if its sunny then I'm in a better mood and more energetic and if its more cloudy and gloomy rainy etc outside then that seems to suck the energy out of me!

NaBloPoMo day 3 - What is your favorite way to recharge when you feel drained of energy?

My favorite way to recharge is either taking a drive to a park and walking around and just relaxing in the nice outdoors or like now in the winter time, I take a nice hot bubble bath. I relax in the tub with my laptop in there playing one of my many playlists I have on Spotify and just relax...don't think about anything or think about little things..clear my head and or get my head straight helps me recharge when I feel that I am drained and can't concentrate on getting things done etc.

I absolutely can't wait for my ONE whole week to Italy!!!! I am going to SO be taking a bubble bath EVERY night!!! I am going in March for my 40th birthday and I will definitely be needing to recharge my energy there as we want to see a ton of things. Starting in Rome and then going to Venice and Florence :) That is a pic of a tub in one of the hotels that I'm looking into staying at...whichever one has the hugest tub I want!! LOL...

Blog Challenge - day 3 - The inspiration behind your blog name and the reason you began blogging?

Well I first got involved in blogging because my step-daughter introduced it to me on myspace about 7 years ago..hmm might of been longer..lost track of time, will have to look it up and see.

Anyway, she got me into it because she knew that I love to write my thoughts down. The name and where it came from..since the first time that I got online which was goodness 12 years ago or a little longer my first name/id that I came up with was Lisa_2900 well after awhile I got tired of the _ in between so I decided to just do the Lisa2900 and since then its stuck with me..I had this blog as just Lisa's blog but a few years 5 years or so a friend came up with an avatar/banner for me and she called me Queen of Random and that just kind of stuck with me and only about last year or so is when I finally redid my blog completely and put Queen of Random as my title.

I love my blog and I love my blog name. I am for sure the Queen of Random in more ways then one. 

I can jump from one thing t…

January Blog Challenge day 2 - 5 blogging goals, and your plan to achieve them

For today's January Blog Challenge  for day 2, the topic is 5 blogging goals and my plan to achieve them.

Let's see....

1. Stay involved/active on my blog. Around the holidays I was MIA...I have been blogging for more then 7 years. I use to do just a personal blog but then started doing it to where I wanted to share things with others. I love my blog SO much, I have a shirt that says I heart blog or something like that .. lol I haven't worn it in awhile and forget exactly what it says..I've had it for years and have worn it out! It was on Rosie O'Donnell's site years ago and I had to have it :) I am determined to stay active no matter what I am doing and how busy or chaotic it gets around here I will stay more active. Even if that means scheduling posts...I will stay active and fresh :)

2. I absolutely am hooked on the Giveaways that are out there for the bloggers to get involved with. So another goal of mine is to keep adding more giveaways on my blog and stay ac…

NaBloPoMo-Jan 2nd - Which daily tasks take up the most of your energy?

Today for the 2nd day of the NaBloPoMo, the topic/start is which daily tasks take up most of my energy?

I would have to say cooking meals I think. Sometimes I'm in the mood for cooking and other nights I'm just not in the mood for standing in the kitchen for an hour getting dinner ready. So I think that cooking would be the one that takes out the most energy.

Other then that, the most energy out of me is when my teenagers "fuss/pout" like they were toddlers! Listening to them fuss over little stupid things takes a lot of energy out of me! Why? Because it takes energy for me to just let them fuss at each other and put on my headphones and blast music!! LOL..I'm tired of jumping in the middle of them and telling them to stop fussing like toddlers, I think one of these days they will figure it out and stop...maybe?!! They are 14, 15, 17 and 19! The 19 year old usually isn't in them but sometimes he gets involved and oh brother! I have 3 sons and one daughter...

NaBloPoMo-Tues Jan 1- Where do I draw my energy from?

I draw my energy from music. I love music. I swear I can't seem to get anything done without out. I am not that talented to be a great singer or anything but I do love singing along now and again and I love playing the singing games on the game systems with my teens..that is a good time for relaxing and being just silly and out there!

When I need to get things done I play music, if I can't find a station online that I like listening too, I start my spotify. I have several Playlist that I made up for different moods that I get in and I play them. I blast them on my laptop. I absolutely have to have music while cleaning, cooking, relaxing, taking a bath and relaxing, getting ready, working (its turned down since sometimes I answer/make calls) and doing anything else music is my energy.

I love all kinds of music, from back in the 60s and 70s classic rock and classic country to especially the 80s rock like Bon Jovi and Poison to Motley Crue and other great bands and artists, they do…
