50 things (actually 49 because there is no 17)

1. My roommate and I once: Does Tim count as my roommate? Once we went camping in Chiefland Florida. There was NOTHING to do there, so we sat on the floor of the SuperWalmart and played with the Leapfrog Explorer toys. It was so hot and Walmart had ac.

2.Never in my life have I: wanted to go skydiving, bungie jumping, or anything that requires jumping out of something way high up.

3. The one person who can drive me nuts, but then can always manage to make me smile is: Sebastian

4. High school was: mostly wonderful - I met Tim and had great friends

5. When I'm nervous: I pull my hair by my nose... goes back to when I was a kid and sucked my thumb with my hair by my nose.

6. The last time I cried was: This is hard. I get teary eyed all the time - could be a news story or a message board post or I am missing Debi. The last real all out cry was after reading a poem my niece wrote a few weeks ago.

7. If I were to get married right now, my bridesmaids would be: I think the same as when I got married the first time, only now my kids would be in the wedding. The first time my maid of honor was Tricia (Patty), Jorgena, and my sister Michelle.

8. Would you rather run naked through a crowded place or have someone e-mail your deepest secret to all your friends? If I could remember my deepest secret, then I guess it would be easier to decide if I really would die if anyone found out. But, I can't seem to remember what my deepest secret is... so I guess I would choose to have that emailed.

9. My hair: is long and stringy and in desperate need of a perm.

10. When I was 5: My best friend was Tricia (Patty) and we played in their shed all the time. It was our very special playhouse with lots of odds and ends from garage sales. We had a play kitchen and a seventies looking fold up table with mushrooms on it. I loved my life when I was five.

11. Last Christmas: we decorated the tree with Happy Meal toys and Beanie Babies because Sebastian would have destroyed real ornaments.

12. When I turn my head left: I see the tv flickering on my couch.

13. I should be: doing exactly what I am doing... relaxing since the kids are finally asleep... I think...

14. When I look down I see: my laptop

15. The craziest recent event was: Where do I start? Let's keep this a happy place!

16. If I were a character on "Friends": I'd be Monica. I am a control freak. I like things to be my way and I like things to have a plan, but I do have a good heart (most of the time).

18. My favorite aunt is: Tusie Karen (We call our aunts Tusie - means aunt in Romanian)

19. I have a hard time understanding: Sebastian's eating habits or should I say LACK of Eating habits

20. One time at a family gathering: My dad threw up in his plate during a family dinner at Denny's. I thought Tim was going to pass out and my mom just casually placed a napkin over the plate and took it to the kitchen. It was hysterical!

21. You know I like you if: I make my famous Hershey's brownies for you. P.S. you can get the huge box of mix from Sam's Club.

22. If I won an award, the first person I'd thank: Probably my husband, Tim.

23. Take my advice: Life is short, look for the blessings in everyday, do the things you want now and don't take it for granted.


24. My ideal breakfast is: I don't really eat breakfast, but when I do - I like the Denny's Original Grand Slam - pancakes, over easy eggs, homefries, and bacon.

25. If you visit my home town: you will find it to be a really boring and depressing place.

26. Sometime soon I plan to visit: Williamsburg

27. If you spend the night at my house: you will notice that we are all nightowls and as my mom says - the house comes alive after 11pm.

28. I'd stop my wedding if: I didn't love my groom? I don't know, that is an odd question.

29. The world could do without: Screaming Car Dealership Radio Ads

30. I'd rather lick the belly of a cockroach than: ever go on Splash Mountain again

31. The most recent thing I've bought myself is: OH... I know this one! A vellum adhesive thingy for scrapbooking. It goes on clear to attach vellum paper.

32. The most recent thing someone else bought for me is: I think it was the chocolate Tim bought me that was a subject of a recent blog post.

33. My favorite red head is: I believe the only redhead I know is my sister-in-law, Jennifer, but even if I knew somebody else, I would still say Jennifer is my favorite.

34. My favorite brunette is: I can't pick one... all of my kids and Tim are brunettes.

35. My car must have a sign on it that reads: Please slam your car door into mine and leave a ding... I think I have like 5 tiny dents!

36. The last time I was drunk: I was in St. John last year (not this trip)and had a great evening at home with my hubby!

37. The animals I would like to see flying besides birds: Somebody else said it, but I like it... Pigs - so I could really mean "WHEN PIGS FLY".

38. I shouldn't have been: speeding past Hardeeville SC. It was wrong and dangerous and that ticket has stuck with me for the last 7 years. I have learned to use cruise control and not speed like that.

39. I should have: told my Dad I loved him the last time I talked to him before he died and I should have homeschooled Timmy from the very beginning.

40. Last night I: stayed up too late like usual and I watched the season ending of Windfall on my dvr.

41. There's this girl I know who: just got engaged, bought the most beautiful wedding dress, and will be a gorgeous bride.

42: I don't know: what the future holds....but I know it will all work out the way God has planned....

43. A better name for me would be: MOM... it IS what I hear all day long afterall.

44. If I ever go back to school I'll: probably be crabby because I can't remember anything for more than 2 seconds.

45. How many days until my birthday? A lot? My birthday is April 14th... figure it out.

46. One dead celebrity I wish I'd met is: Elvis popped into my head. I don't think I really would want to meet him, but I would enjoy seeing him perform.

47. I've lived at my current address since: MY SON says I have to put it this way... I lived in THIS HOUSE from October 1990 until December 1996. Then we moved a few blocks away to our first official home. Then we bought this house from my parents in July 1999. My son says this is his one and only home.

48. I've been told I look like: My Tusie Karen.

49. If I could have any car, it would be: I don't know... I like my car. It isn't fancy, but I like it. It is a Hyundai Sonata with all the bells and whistles.

50. If I got a new cat tomorrow, I would name it: I WOULD NOT GET A CAT TOMORROW! Sorry, I am done with pets. We have a dog and she will stay, but then I think I am done with anything that sheds, pees, pukes or does anything else to my floor.

I have to say I laughed out loud at your comment by number 50. I have the same thoughts. As soon as my 3 cats depart from this world I will be done with indoor pets that can ruin my house. We are supposed to be spending this holiday weekend ripping up some carpet so that the house will not smell or look like cat anymore. GRRRRRRRRRR sick of the animals.
You also have the same birthday as my 3 year old son.
Also 29 resonated with me. I hate those ads. I always flip the station which is not easy because there are so few stations I want to listen to in my car full of kids. LOL.
Oh yeah and we live in FL also. We are a ways away from you though up in the Northeast.
