Brought To You By The Letter "Z"

Thank you for the great questions...this was loads of F.U.N.!

Gigi asked "What state do you live in?"

Gigi, I can not disclose the state I live in. My Dr. Hubby has severe WWW phobia and when I started blogging I promised not to disclose our names or location. Unfortunately through photos I have given away most of our names...except Dr. Hubby's.

Sue asked, "Does your hubby read your blog?"

Dr. Hubby does read my blog, but mostly when he thinks I am upset with him. He knows I am an open book kind of gal and can safely figure out how I am feeling from my post that day. Also if he has not been home alot he will check out my blog to see what has been going on. He loves to see pics of the kids and the funny things they do.

Dana asked, "Does your MIL ever read your blog and does it cause family tensions?"

No, she does not have a computer.

M-Cat asked, "If you could change one thing about your life right now what would it be?"

It would definitely be my weight. I am unhealthy AND a bad role model for my kiddos. It tears my heart out.

Ocean Dreams asked, "Would you ever consider an etsy shop for your creations?"

Maybe. I have thought about doing some cards.

Ocean Dreams asked, "What were you doing when you were 20 years old?"

I turned 20 in November 1994...I worked at Petland...I got pregnant with Manga Dork in January...got hired as a file clerk at an Otolaryngology office...graduated with an associate degree in Office technology specializing in medical and vacationed in FL in May...quit my job in June...gave birth to Manga Dork in September...and for my 21st bday I was given my first and only SURPRISE party.

Pam asked, "How long have you lived in your current state?"

We moved to the farm in December of 2005...so almost 5 years!

Creative Mish asked, "How are you liking Twitter after only a few days?"

I love love love it! It is feeding my celebrity obsession. I now obnoxiously talk about the celebs I follow like we are best friends. Just another fun way to annoy my family...heehee.

Creative Mish asked, "Do you have any family fun planned this summer? and Where is your next trip?"

I will be hosting our Farm Summer Reading Club for my kids and their cousins. We are going to be having "Sundaes on Mondays" on the farm. We will end the summer with our annual Back to School Fashion Show. Our next trip will be a family vacation in Oak Island, NC.

Corps of Discovery asked, "Why did you choose TOPS over other weight loss groups?"

After years of dieting I feel like an "expert" on knowing how to lose weight. I just need to put those things into action. I use the group for support, motivation, and accountability {weigh in}. TOPS is only $26 yearly and 50 cents dues per week {these may be different in other chapters}. This is alot more economical than Weight Watchers. I have belonged to Weight Watchers and I think they have a GREAT diet plan.

Corps of Discovery asked, "You write alot about your one room schoolhouse. Do you homeschool or is that your craft room."

We have a one room schoolhouse on our farm. When we bought the farm it was an apartment with a very hateful old woman renting it. She used to stand on her porch and yell, "You are all idiots!" at us. We evicted her and I turned the living room/kitchen area into my scraproom and the bedroom into a playroom. It also has a bathroom. You can see the outside HERE.

Tammy asked, "If you could say one thing to your MIL without any repurcussions, what would it be?"

I would say, "Stop lying. Stop trying to smooth things over between people by telling lies. None of us fall for it. We all know what you are doing." AND "You totally make a difference between your grandkids. Please stop insisting and proclaiming that you DO NOT! I wish we could be close, but every time I let my guard down I get hurt."

Tammy asked, "Where's one place you would like to travel?"

Egypt is my #1...I still have lots of dream vacations in mind though!

Leslie asked, "How do you deal with your inlaws without telling them to take a hike?"

I stay up "on the hill." They live at the bottom of my hill on our farm. I plan things with other people. I don't call them...they call me. I limit the information I give them about things that are going on with me. I don't plan any fun events for that side of the family. I guess I just had to "control" our relationship as much as possible.

Shanda asked, "What is the one thing that made you laugh like you have never laughed before?"

A certain person {with way too many degrees to say something like this} brought an "Xylophone" home and offered it as something Wild Child could take to preschool. I told him that he had already brought home an Xray and we didn't need it. He said, "Yes, but she is going to need someting for Z day! I nearly fell over laughing...I still crack up retelling it...and yes, I retell it every chance I get. I must say he can't be blamed too much. His hillbilly momma still "warshes" dishes in her "zink." Seriously.

So cute! What a fun way to get to know you better. We really need to meet sometime...of course that would creep out the doc wouldn't it?
I love your school house! I had never seen it before. Looks like a perfect place.
Have a great day.

Tauna, I have met Cadence in person before and he was fine with it. He is slowly coming around. I think he trusts me in who I trust to meet. He just doesn't like the idea of just any crazy being able to read my blog and see the info.

M-Cat said...

LOVE these get to know you games! Didn't realize Dr hubby was www shy. But I totally understand...

gigi said...

Okay, sorry I asked about your state. You just seem to be more southern than anything else. I maybe totally wrong.

Okay here's one for ya, do you eat grits or okra??

Scrappy Girl said...

No problem Gigi...the southern thing comes from growing up in southern WV...if you read my blog with the same accent as Jeff Foxworthy but in a female tone you have it about right...lol.

I do not like grits and I am the only one in my family that does not like okra...it is a texture thing for me...don't like the insides.

gigi said...

See I think that they are both totally southern and you almost have to be southern to like them. Thanks for answering my "?"

I loved reading this and learning more about you! Love how you enjoy your life and say what you think! Come say hi :D

tammy said...

The xylophone totally made me laugh!! These were fun. Maybe I should try it one day. I'm always afraid of what I'll get asked!

Scrappy Girl said...

Tammy...you should totally do it!

Pam said...

That is so funny. I love reading these get to know you posts.

Shanda said...

This was fun reading. You are brave to accept questions.

Sue said...

I love the inner workings of a person.. fun to get to know you better.

Those in-laws are something else..I try so hard to be a good MIL.. I really don't get that involved, or would ever dare say what I was thinking.. so far so good.
