Thursday Thunks

1. What kind of dryer sheets do you use? Bounty

2. How many times a week do you eat out/order in? We eat out Fridays almost every week, and every now and then one day during the weekend. But, that is about it.

3. What did you do the night of your high school graduation? My best friend at the time Judy Dyson, had a party at her house and I went to that and of course that was before the 21 drinking age, so partied pretty hard, and stayed the night there, got home around 3 pm the next day.

4. So Octomom is rumored to have been offered a million bucks to do a porno. Would you do it for a million? That would be a BIG NO!! I don't care how much I would be offered.

5. If your child was born with an extra finger or toe, would you have it surgically removed? I would probably not. If they would want the surgery later on in life, by their choice I would stand behind him/her!

6. What was the last movie you saw? Mall Cop, on Valentines Day, it was really cute and funny.

7. I wanna buy you a dozen roses, what color should they be? That would be RED!! Love the color RED and love RED Roses!!

8. You are walking across the street, you are not quite half way when a speeding car comes... you have to run to get out of its way, which direction do you run? It would depend on if the car is speeding in front of me or behind me, I would go the direction that is going to be the farthest aways from the car!!

9. Tell us about a time when you were invited over somewhere and had the most awful time. Gosh, I have fun where ever I go, I just can't think of an awful time being invited anywhere.

10. You open your front door and there is a box with a puppy in it... what do you do? Oh, gosh I am such a sucker for puppies!! I would have to bring it in, and depending on how much I loved it would keep it, but would first see if it belonged to someone!! Of, course Dan would not like it.......LOL!!

1. It seems like: It's been forever since I have seen my Brother and Sister-in-Law and so looking forward to spending some relaxing time with them the end of March!!

2. Leave me a comment when you're done, please?

3. If I thought you would spend more time doing more things you want to do I'd be supportive in what ever it is you want to do! ( of course that is directed to my workaholic husband!! lol

4. Making memories is what I think of most when I think of you. (Also directed at my hubby)

5. To me, Valentine's Day means spending time with the one you love, but to me Valentine's Day should be everyday with the one you love, not just a day that you set aside to only give flowers or special love!!

6.Dan gives me strength.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to going out to eat with my family, tomorrow my plans include going out to dinner and a movie with out kids with my husband that set up a babysitter for us and Sunday, I want to chill and enjoy the day!

Thursday Thunks

1. You are driving down the road and there is a puddle in the road. A big puddle. Not one that will really wreck your car or anything, but a big puddle. There is no other cars in front of you or behind you - do you drive through the puddle or drive around it? I would drive around it, cause you never know what is in it, and most of the time my car is clean cause I am anal about that, and it would get it dirty!! lol

2. Go to Google Images, type in any word that comes to mind and post the 1st picture you see.
Guess where I want to be??

3. A college calls you up and says that you have been selected to take/get any degree that you want on their dollar.... what do you choose? I would take some thing to do with Social Work. I have wanted to be a Social Worker ever since I adopted my kids!! I know it is a hard job, and not easy, but I think I would be good at it!! Maybe some day!

4. Are you blogging on a laptop or desktop? Right now my lap top, cause my desk top has died cause of a nasty virus!! Hope to get a new one soon!

5. Which store, excluding a grocery store, do you shop at most often? Bath & Body Works, when I am out of town, love everything in the store, and get in real trouble when I am there, and in Hobbs America......well...ummmm, I guess Hobby Lobby, cause we really don't have much here.

6. My daughters tried out for the school musical last night. Were you ever in a school play/musical? Which one? Well, not a play type of musical, but was always involved in Chorus and sang in the winter and spring concerts we would put on!! Love to sing!!

7. I read yesterday that a school PTA group wants to try to ban white bread, cakes, brownies or any other "treat" from their lunch menus... plus make kids' lunchboxes brought from home not include any "junk food". Thoughts on that one? This is a great question!!! I have two girls in public school right now, and they have been in 4 different schools, and each one is so different on lunch menus. In Texas they were allowed to purchase an extra snack type of food to go with their meal if they had the money, other wise they got fruit! Then we moved to North West New Mexico where they went to 2 different school and got all kinds of snacks for lunch, from pudding, cake, cookies and ice cream. Then we move to Hobbs, NM and they only get fruit with their lunch, and can not purchase anything extra. I think offering them a more healthy choice at school is good, but I think they are taking things a little to far! Really if you look at the fat intake on white and regular wheat bread there is not that much difference, and what kid is going to eat whole grain wheat bread??? Unless of course they grew up with it!! As, far as not allowing them to take it in their lunch boxes......Get real, that is going a bit far!! I don't see how they can do that, people have the right to eat what they want, and unless there is a cause for a ban on certain foods at school, like for allergy reasons, I don't see how they can do it.......NO I don't agree with that!!

8. How many people can your kitchen table seat? Right now 6, but if we put both leaves in it and put some more chairs around it we can get 10 to 12 easy!!

9. What time is it right now? It is 4:30 pm.

10. Walk out the front door of your house/apartment, turn right, walk 2 blocks. What do you see? I would not be able to walk two full blocks to the right, because our street dead ends at the end of one block and then there are just houses with yards. So the answer would be someones back yard HA HA!!

Saturday 9: Time Has Come Today

1. What time of day do you usually play Saturday 9? It all depends on what time of day that I get on the computer. Most of the time it is in the evenings!!

2. At 9AM on a weekday, what are you doing? On, Monday and Wednesday I am just getting back home from taking Joey to school!! The other 3 days, I am home doing laundry, cleaning, getting Joey breakfast, or getting ready myself.

3. At 9PM on any given night, what would you most like to be doing? Watching TV with Dan, knitting and chilling. Some nights I am in bed by 9.

4. What is your most frequent activity online? Playing around in Facebook, and reading blogs!! Oh, and always looking for that knitting pattern that I just have to have, or yarn I can't live without!

5. Is there one day of the week that seems to fly by? If yes, why? Sunday, always goes by fast! I guess because I don't want the weekend to end, and enjoy being with my family and when your having fun the day just flies.

6. Do you agree that the older you get, the faster time seems to go by? Oh, good grief yes!! I really don't know what happened to 2008, and it is now already in the 2nd month of this year!! I would like time to slow down some so I have more time with my kids and husband :)

7. What is your favorite thing to do with free time? Play around on the computer, knit, read. I'm a mom of three kids though, so don't get much free time!!! But, Joey starts kindergaten next year.......ALL day kindergaten, and I will have 7 hours of free time 5 days a week, until I find a part time job I might want to do! But, it is going to have to be something I enjoy doing!! ( Maybe something to do with knitting, I have wanted for the past few years to open my own shop)

8. How much time do you spend alone? Would you like it to be more? Less? Well, like I said above I am a mom of 3 kids, and time alone is not something I have very much of!!!! I would love more, and in about 6 months I will have a lot more free time!! I am looking forward to it!

9. If you could spend one hour doing something what would it be? Reading and soaking in my spa tub!! I don't get to do that as much as I want to, and really need to take more time to do that!! I clean the thing out all the time, and never get in it!! lol

You're the energetic, ambitious type.
And only NYC is fast enough for you.
Maybe you'll set yourself up with a killer career
Or simply take in all the city has to offer.

I so love this city, and would love to go back to visit!! I loved every min. of the 9 months I lived in Manhattan and miss all the wonderful friends that I made there!!!

Manic Monday

What's the most embarrassing song on your iPod (or music collection)? Gosh, I don't think I have any embarrassing songs, have some old songs, from the 70's and 80's!! I guess that could be embarrassing cause it is telling my age a bit! LOL

How much time do you spend each day in your commute? (Or if you don't work outside the house, how much time do you spend in your car or other preferred mode of transportation?) I don't commute to work, but every Mon. and Wed. I take Joey to school, and that takes about 30 mins. round trip! I run errands and on Friday's we go out to lunch. I don't spend much time in my car unless we are going to Lubbock or Midland.

What's your favorite wardrobe item and why? My long terry cloth robe, cause it is so comfy and when it is cold I just love to put it one with my jammies and chill!!
