Sunday Stealing Questions and Answers



I've enjoyed participating in the Saturday 9 and the Sunday Stealing these past few weeks.  It certainly helps to get my sometimes feeble brain in gear and it gives my readers a chance to learn just a little bit more about me. ~since I know they want to~ 

What is one thing that you would change about yourself if you could?
Well, what an interesting question.........I have always wished that I had gone to college, so I'd say I wish that I were a college graduate.  I don't know if my life would have been a bit different if I had gone to college but I still wish I had.

Name three exotic countries you would like to visit:

If I could just snap my fingers and be there I'd like to visit, China, India and Greece

What do you think the secret to life is?

No doubt about it, it is knowing Jesus Christ as my personal Savior and knowing that HE is  always be with me, no matter what.  And, having the assurance of spending eternity with HIM.

Best concert:

I would have to say George Strait.  It was many years ago but he gave a first class concert and I love all of his songs.  It was a most enjoyable evening.

Song you can listen to over and over and not get tired of:

I Can Only Imagine by Mercy Me   I know every word and loved it the first time I ever heard it many years ago and now that I've seen the movie, I love it even more.

Worst movie music soundtrack or score:

I have no idea

A song you wish wouldn't get stuck in your head but always does:

I really don't get songs stuck in my head or haven't in a very long time.

Who was your FIRST date?

My husband

Do you still talk to your FIRST love?
Every day - I married him.

What was your FIRST alcoholic drink?

I am a teetotaler.  All alcoholics started with a JUST one drink.  I have seen alcohol ruin lives and families and  I made the decision a very, very long time ago that I would not drink in any shape, form or fashion. 

What was your FIRST job?
Other than babysitting (I earned 50 cents an hour back in the day) I worked at a local department store gift wrapping.

What was your FIRST car?

Oh, I didn't have a car until I was married.  I drove our family car after I got my license.  Our first car after we married was a red  Pontiac Firebird.  We were a one car family for quite some time and then Hubby went to work for a company that provided him a company car so the Firebird became "my" car.

Where did you go on your FIRST ride on an airplane?

I flew from Virginia to Louisiana to see my husband to be.  I was scared too death but that was the first of many, many flights for me.

Who was your FIRST best friend and do you still talk?

Oh, yes indeed.  It was a girl named Lynette and we became friends in the 8th grade and although for most of our friendship we have lived many miles apart, we stay in touch and visit each other when we can.  She has lived in Florida for 30+ years but she is from here in Louisiana where I live.

Whose wedding did you attend the FIRST time?

I do not recall as I started going to weddings a very long time ago.

Tell us about your FIRST roommate.

I did have a brief stent with college and my roommate and I had nothing in common.  We were just roommates and nothing more.  I wish it had been different as I really looked forward to having a roommate.  

If you had one wish, what would it be (other than more wishes)?

That my Grans would make wise and good decisions as they grow up and never have to live with consequences of bad decisions.

What is something you would learn if you had the chance?

Hummmm, just not sure.

Did you marry the FIRST person you were in love with?

Yes, I did.

What were the first lessons you ever took and why?

I started taking piano lessons when I was around 8 or 9 and took for 7-8 years.  I took because my Mom wanted me to learn to play the piano but I never had my heart in it.  I did learn but really never enjoyed it.  I regret that today.

What is the first thing you do when you get home? 

I take my rings off and put them in a little gold lidded box that sets on my key drop.  I cannot stand to wear my rings while I'm at home.  They are the first thing I put on when I leave the first thing I take off when I get home. 


See you back tomorrow for more questions with The Blended Blog Gals.

  1. Hi Lea! I do the same thing with my rings. I agree with you on the secret to life...there is no way I would make it through without Jesus.
    I do not go to many concerts, but George Strait would have been a great one!
    I also loved I Can Only Imagine, and yes the movie made it even better.
    You are not missing anything by not drinking. I did that when I was young and unsaved and I was sick all of the time. Why do people do that? I do not drink anymore and do not miss it at all.
    Have a blessed long weekend and I enjoyed all of your answers very much!

  2. I enjoyed my piano lessons; I still play music, only on the guitar. But without the piano lessons I wouldn't play as well as I do. As for college - I have three degrees and they never helped much, really. I wouldn't trade them for anything but life can be fine without them.
