...my little brother had this girlfriend. She was the first real girlfriend...the one who is part of the family and around for a long time. They broke up, but she babysat my oldest and was just...part of our lives. It's how things work in the country. Haven't seen her in a while but (Thank you Facebook!) now she's handy again. She sent this and it's fun because we have so much history. And today? I've got to get a kid to the doctor for a sports physical so...I can't be writing ALL day! ;)
1.What was the last thing you put in your mouth?
Cheerios. I'm going to see if they can change my life, like the commercial says ;)
2.Where was your profile picture taken?
Fourth of July, at George & Ann's pool...I'm desperately looking for a decent picture that doesn't involve alcohol but so far, no luck.
3.Can you play Guitar Hero?
Never tried...but my kids and relatives have MARATHONS.
4.Name someone who made you laugh today?
Me. Threatening the Florence City School system if they don't stop sending me a letter everytime my child misses a day of school and I don't send an excuse. I'M THE PARENT. I don't have to tell you shit.
5.How late did you stay up last night and why?
(Dawn: 11:30. Reading the Flat Belly Diet book...Let me know how that goes!..Amy)
I was in bed at 8:30...because I got up at FOUR AM and drove to Tuscaloosa and sweated through TWO overtime tennis matches (not mine) and drove back.
6.If you could move somewhere else, would you?
I would keep my house here, and live in a different place in the world two or three months out of the year.
7. Ever been kissed under fireworks?
Ummm...probably. Can't remember so...THAT must not have been too big a deal!
8. Which of your friends lives closest to you?
Let's see...Brenda and Melanie, and my mom, are in Aqua Vista. Three miles.
9. Do you believe exes can be friends?
Ex-boyfriends? Yes...I have several. Ex-husbands? I hope he's burning in hell somewhere. Preferably hell.
10. How do you feel about Dr Pepper?
When I was little, it was a special treat to go to my cousin Pam's and have a REAL one...as in, in a glass bottle. With 10, 2 & 4 on the bottle.
11. When was the last time you cried really hard?
A long time ago. I'm afraid if I ever start now, I won't stop. Catching up, I guess.
12. Who took your profile picture?
Probably one of the kids.
13. Who was the last person you took a picture of?
Pariss, playing tennis.
14. Was yesterday better than today?
Well, yesterday at 8:30 I'd already driven for four hours and was looking for coffee. Today, I'm still in my pajamas and the pot's empty! That'll do.
15. Can you live a day without TV?
16. Are you upset about anything?
Reference the attendance policy in the public school system here. And the woman with power issues THEY CAN'T FIRE because of her race. Something wrong there.
17. Do you think relationships are ever really worth it?
Of course. You may not realize it until you're oh...say, NINETY YEARS OLD...but that's really the only mark you leave.
18. Are you a bad influence?
Actually, I'd like to think I encourage people to experience things they might otherwise miss. Life's too short to be careful all the time ;)
19. Night out or night in?
In. I KNOW I should get out more but...I've done that. And I'm tired.
20. What items could you not go without during the day?
Hmmm. I miss the computer when we're out of town but, there's a laptop that I just don't hook up so I must not miss it TOO badly. Truthfully? I have to be able to see a clock at all times. There's one in every room in this house and I check the time on my phone more often than I check the phone.
21. Who was the last person you visited in the hospital?
I took AC to the emergency room a couple of weeks ago but...just visited? I guess Cousin Bill.
22. What does the last text message in your inbox say?
"How go." That would be B checking on the status of Pariss' final overtime match.
23. How do you feel about your life right now?
Time to get something done. One way or another.
24. Do you hate anyone?
No. I despise a couple of teenage girls but...they're easy to ignore.
25. If we were to look in your face book inbox, what would we find?
Mostly people asking what the HELL I was talking about. I tend to assume the world can read my mind.
26. Has anyone ever called you perfect before?
Good Lord, no.
27. What song is stuck in your head?
Something by Toby Keith about "an American man," I think. Must be on in the den.
28. Someone knocks on your window at 2:00 a.m., who do you want it to be?
I'm with Dawn...no one but Publisher's Clearinghouse better be standing there.
29.Wanna have grand kids before you’re 50?
Considering I was still having KIDS when I was 44?
30. Name something you have to do tomorrow?
TOMORROW? I haven't gotten through today.
31. Do you think too much or too little?
Too much. About stuff I can't change.
32. Do you smile a lot?
Actually, I laugh a lot. This place is a constant sideshow.
