Survey tagged by Melody

Favorite Person (outside of family)? I must live life in a bubble because I really had to think about this one! I guess I'd have to say... right now my favorite person is my friend Heather from the ol' high school days. We're mostly blog friends right now, but I sure think about her a lot.

Favorite Food? anything I don't cook!

Quirks about you? I usually get the "jimmy legs" at night. I have to jiggle them until I get all the jiggles out and then I can go to sleep. Jeremy loves it.

Any regrets in life? YES! I regret not inviting my sister-in-laws Kari and Aimee to be my bridesmaids. I was young and thought it was not ok to invite married ladies to be part of a wedding party. SHAME ON ME! I've regretted it ever since.

Favorite Charity/Cause? My Church! Our tithes and fast offerings help people all over the world. I love it!

Favorite Blog recently? My friend Susie's. She is hilarious! I love all her long narratives - it sounds just like her when she talks.

Something you can't get enough of?
Costco churros!, Pride and Prejudice A&E version, and computer time.

Worst Job you've ever had? file clerk

What job would you pay not to have? stunt person - i'm totally afraid of heights, injury and pain.

Guilty Pleasure? I am addicted to facebook, checking email and blogging. These things all take time away from my family (and housework) and I need to get it under control!

Got any confessions?
I don't dust upstairs. Now you're going to check when you come over. Oh great.

If you had $1000 dollars to spend on yourself how would you spend it?
Um... first a new outfit complete with a pair of jeans that actually fit and a cute pair of Dansko shoes. The rest I'd just spend on house stuff - new curtains for the living room, kitchen island countertop and another chair for the family room.

Favorite thing about your house?
My new blue room and matching powder room.

Least favorite thing about your house? Need more storage!

One thing you are bad at? Remembering details.

One thing you are good at? Getting dinner on the table with all the food dishes hot at the same time.

If you could change one thing about your circumstances, what would it be? To have the house paid off. Do you know how much extra money that would put in our pockets every month???

Who would you like to meet someday? Oprah, but only on her "My Favorite Things" show.

What makes you feel sexy? Hello?! Sexy? Who made these questions? I'm going to say... getting dressed up to go on a date with my hubby - it's the only time of the week I get to primp for him.

Who is your real life hero? My husband.

What is the hardest part of your job? Finding enough motivation to get everything done that needs to be done. No part of my job is hard. Just tedious, repetitive and boring at times. It's hard to WANT to fold laundry and do the stinkin' dishes that never seem to end.

When are you most relaxed? When there is no school or work the next day.

What can you not live without? Can I say my husband again? I'm going first - we've already discussed this. I would not survive without him!

Do you agree or disagree with the recent article that reported that blogs are authored by narcissists?
Um. No. I know I keep a blog because it's like a journal for our family. I can permanently record special, fun and even mundane events that occurred in our lives.

Why do you blog? See above.

Who are you tagging? Kristie M., Buffy, and Maree.

Oh no, not you too! Roger gets that whole restless legs thing at night and it DRIVES ME BONKERS! I can't stand fidgeting....especially when it messes up my blankets that I've tucked just a certain way around myself for optimal snuggleness ;)

Melody said...

I get the restless legs, too! And yes, I'm sooo checking your upstairs. ;)

This made my day! I saw it this morning when I was running out the door and it made me smile all day. I wish we lived closer! Just think back 12 years ago... what if we would tell us that our friendship would get quiet for a few years and then we would meet up on this thing called the blogosphere. :) H

You are such a doll. I am going to go upstairs by the way--with my out!

Kristen said...

I disagree on the whole remembering details...I have never met anyone who is better at birthdays and special occasions.

Elizabeth said...

If you tagged me, what does that mean? What do I do? You know how blog unsavy I am.

Susie Demke said...

Why thank you! I'm flattered. I always thought I was just offensive.
It's true- I can talk and I can write. It just takes me a long time to get my point across and my husband ignores me now so I just blog....
