You wanna know something?

Well I'm being all copy catty to my friend Terri over at (sorry too lazy to do a proper link) and doing this short question and answer.  I NEVER do these things...but the kids are napping, I'm not getting the pedi that I really want and I don't feel like being truly creative, so here it goes.  So thanks Terri, muchly appreciated.

1. What is the most common question that you are asked (in life) that is none of the questioner's business?

"Where is Jere?"  Seriously....I can NOT go anywhere without being asked that. I know people like me (and I'm the REAL friend) but HE is who everyone LOVES to see.  He is the life of a party, so when he's not there, he's missed.  People that don't REALLY know us, I'm sure most of the time can NOT figure out how we're together. Oh wait, people who do know us must think that too.  But, my point is.  He's this super loud, friendly, lovey, funny guy.  Talks to everyone, laughs loudly, while  I am content to just be quiet int he corner.  And since i have the cursed face that looks mad even when it's not,  People think I'm mean.  So yeah, I truly get asked that EVERY SINGLE DAY.

2. Who makes you happiest right now?

Fine, in the spirit of total honesty....MAX.  He is just so stinkin HAPPY and nice and sweet.  He brings my mood up every time.  I just can't help but smile when his sweet little face is near me.

3. Would you consider yourself to be spoiled?

That depends on what you're gonna consider spoiled.  If you mean...I have an amazing family, adorable kids, a loving husband, a roof over our head, food on the table, GREAT friends.  Then yes, YES I am very spoiled.
If you mean traditionally speaking...No, never have been spoiled. That just isn't possible when you're 1 of 7 kids, and your parents are practical and don't believe in entitlement.  We were given opportunities, but not spoiled.

4. Do you want to be famous one day?

Ummm NO.  I don't need that to fell fulfilled.  Would I like to have some more validation for my performance ability...yes.  But I don't want to be famous.  That would be Jere.  HE MUST be famous or die.

5. Could you handle being in the military?

NEVER.  But I am thankful for those that can.

6. Do you believe in Karma?


7. What’s the stupidest thing you ever did with your cell phone?

Let my kids play with it at all.  But really, I've been pretty lucky with my phones.  No big mishaps.

8. Who knows a secret or two about you?

My sisters.  They are my best friends and they pretty much know everything there is to know.  Then again, you all are getting the inside scoop on a few of my secrets too.

9. Who is the most experimental person you know?

I am gonna go with my brother Eric.  Dude will do/try anything.  Oh wait, he has done everything.  But I would also say Jere, in his previous (pre me) life.  He did A LOT of experimenting. 
Let it be know....I am the LEAST experimental person there is.

10. Last thing you did that ticked off your S/O (or if not in a relationship) most recent S/O?

Told him he couldn't have the money he wanted.  Oh wait, ANY time money is mentioned there is usually irritation or hurt feelings.  DAMN money.  I hate it.

11. Have you ever purposely been irritating to someone? If yes, explain.

OF COURSE!  I did it to my siblings ALL the time.  And fine, I won't lie..there have definitely been times that I just said something to irritate Jere.  I'm a jerk that way.

12. What's crazy to you?

Let's see, what is crazy?  Sky diving, bungee jumping...just pure insanity.  The very thought gives me hives.

13. Who (other than the three of us TT writers) writes the most interesting blog?

Well this isn't a loaded question....NOPE, not at all.
I read all different blogs for different reasons.  I read some simply for family updates.  Others for their view on life.  Others to just make me laugh.  But, if I REALLY had to choose a couple/or few  blogs that I find truly interesting/entertaining and can't NOT read...

DentonSanatorium (just found her...I'm in love)
Pulsipherpredilections (funniest blog EVER)
Maile (will break your heart and make you think EVERY time)

Ok, so there you have it.  That wasn't so painful now was it?  Feel free to copy and paste and do it yourself.

Just so you know...I will be heading out of town until Monday night.  Gonna kick it with the young women of the church at girls camp.  I get to be on the "fun committe", so that means last night I taught 20 middle aged women a dance to "Holding Out for  a Hero" as we'll be lip synching it on the first inght.  Also means we came up with skit ideas, and just the fun.  I'm looking forward to this little get away, even if it does mean lots of bugs, dirty and sleeping on a crappy bed with no air. Jere however is traumatized to be watching the kids ALL BY HIMSELF (which isn't true, since Julie will be here).  he's never had run of things.  Wish us him luck.  What I'm trying to say is...I won't be here to update.  And memory Monday will not happen.  Joyce, just take a deep breath. It will ALL be ok.  I will post it on Tuesday.  Not that 8th grade was all that anyway.

With that said...I must be off!

Memes and No no's

Our husbands are the complete opposite. My husband is so quiet and introverted. We are going to a bloggy BBQ tomorrow night, and I told him he didn't have to come, but if he did, he can't hide in the corner reading a book.

And thanks for the shout out!

I hope you're having a fun time! That certainly beats hanging around the house all weekend, binging on Red Vines and gummy bears, like me :)

My favorite part was question you are asked that is none of the questioner's business. Answer "Where is Jere."

The question makes me think of questions like,
Are you going to have more kids?
How much do you make?

I love the question"Are you going to try for a girl?" A very innocent question that suggests I might not be capable of complete happiness if I don't get one.

Heck, we all have questions like this every day that are none of our business but we are just curious or bored. So why not ask?
