Questions and Answers...........

This is a real random post today.  I tried to think of some questions that you might ask me if you could.  Hopefully you will enjoy and guess I should do as I've seen several other bloggers do, if you have any question you would like to ask me, do so in the comment section and I'll answer in a future post.  Here ya go!

  Are you a leader?
Well, I do believe I am, in fact, I love to be in charge. ~smile~  Well, guess I should say I love to be in charge of some things and some things I wouldn't be in charge of if someone paid me.  I guess I was born with that "first child" leadership gene.  I've often thought that if my life had led me down a career path that I might possibly have ended up in a supervisory capacity. ~just sayin'~

  What are you really good at?
I am really good at being organized and I love organizing things. Both of my parents were highly organized so I got a double dose of it.  I've always felt like an organized life was a productive life, but I'm sure there would be those that would disagree.  But, for me, that's the way it is.  I'm happiest with my "ducks in a row." And, with the busyness of my life right now, nearing the completion of our new house, living in a transition sort of state, my ducks are really not in a very straight row. ~grin~

 What is your favorite makeup?
I love lipstick and blush because they are what add the color to my face.  I wear it all but when the blush and lipstick go on it seems that my face lights up and comes alive. It's really funny that I love makeup like I do because my Mom was very much a minimalist when it came to makeup. AND, I have given my Hubby and children strict orders that when I die they had better make sure that I have both blush and lipstick on. ~I'm not joking~

What is your favorite article of clothing?
I have two favorite pieces of clothing, skirts and longer jackets (and not necessarily together).  I think they are both very feminine. And, while they are a favorite of mine, I really do not wear skirts all that much.
 If you could live your life over, what would you change?
I don't spend a lot of time thinking about this but I would most definitely get a college degree.  I don't know that my life would have been any different if I had a degree, but that doesn't matter.  I've always wished that I had finished college.  And, I do know that it's not too late but at this point in my life, I don't want it badly enough to give what it would take to accomplish it.  And, I think we all have things in our lives that we would change, but, the fact is, we cannot go back.  ~so we keep trudging forth~

What are some of your favorite childhood summer memories?
A part of several of my summers as a child were spent at church camp and it was the hi-lite of my summer.  And, we stayed in cabins that were NOT air conditioned and were known to have mice, rats and snakes in them.  Yep! that's right, but at that point in my life, all I thought about was the fun I would have. 
Another hi-lite of my summers was getting to see my long distance family.  We did not live near family and the summer was about the only time we got to see them. 
What were some outside  games you played as a child?
Ring Around the Roses, Red Rover, Red Rover, Annie Over, London Bridges and Hop Scotch.  Do kids today even had a clue what these are? ~guess this really tells my age~ I'm afraid the age of electronics is causing children today to miss out on a whole lot of physical activity fun. ~what a shame~

What is something that aggravates you? 
I have absolutely spend hours since my Dad's illness 4 years ago taking him back and forth to various Drs.  I simply do not tolerate a l-o-n-g wait very well.  We have waited over 2 hours at times to see a Dr. and to me (unless it is an emergency) that is unacceptable.  And, I know that they were not tied up with an emergency.  I had a nurse tell me once that the Dr. my Dad was seeing saw between 40-50 patients from 8:00 - Noon, 4 days a week.  I thought she meant a day (and that's still a boatload) and I asked her if a morning is what she said and she said yes, every morning.  Well, that is more than ridiculous and someone needs to inform him that his patients time is just as valuable as his.  I think it is rude and unthoughtful, but what does one do?  I have to pray extra hard for patience and a good attitude.  Yep! it aggravates the daylites out of me. 

What kind of blogs do you enjoy reading?
I enjoy blogs that share a part of the writer's life, her family, her travels, her activities, her likes, her dislikes, and are inspiring.  I find this type of blog to be the most interesting and it's the type of blog that I try to achieve.  I do not enjoy blogs that are centered around one subject such as: food, exercise, spiritual topics, crafts, much.   I like a smattering of all of it. But, everyone blogs for a different purpose and we all have a different focus for our blogs. That's what makes blogging such fun. I blog for my own enjoyment and to have a type of journal of my life.  One day my kids might enjoy re-reading what I've written after I've gone to my "mansion in the sky." 

And, one last question.........Where will I be next Tuesday?
 I will be in Texas attending the graduation ceremonies of this little fella.  Do you see those cute freckles across his nose?  Could he be any cuter and the best part is that he is such a sweet little boy.  And, he's growing up..........~I feel a tear coming on~ 


Wishing you a happy weekend and again, if there is any question that you would like to ask me, ask away.  I'll be glad to answer it in an upcoming post.
