Yes I’m doing it again. I’m stealing a post idea from another blogger because I am in a creative rut right now. Let’s just say, brain overload. So, I’m answering Caitlin’s 10 personal questions for myself because I think it’s fun dammit!
What are you really good at? What are you really bad at?
I’m really good at responding to emails in a politically correct way (someone told me that today), being a mom, cuddling with Samson, supporting my family, being an open and loving wife, being a leader and organizing! I’m really bad at basketball, driving in reverse, controlling my competitiveness, swimming and playing pool.
Have you ever been in a car accident? What happened?
Just one major one (there were a few fender benders in there but I won’t count those). I was a Senior in high school and riding with my good friend and her boyfriend. I was sitting in the back on the passenger side. My friend’s BF was driving. I almost never sat on that side when he drove because it was harder to talk to my friend but that day I did. We were coming back from the gas station and a guy went through a red light and hit us broadside on the back driver’s side. Car was spun around and we slammed, trunk first, into a light pole. The back window shattered and caved in on me and the trunk lid flew off. I had a lap belt on and was thrown forward in to the seat in front of me. Ended up with a black eye, cuts on my face, and a split lip requiring stitches inside and out. Had I sat on the other side, like normal, I would have been killed. My guardian angel was looking out for me!
Why did you attend your college?
Because it was a small private school that was close enough to home to visit but far enough away that my parents couldn’t come up too regularly. And I got a scholarship.
Describe your morning routine today.
Woke up at 4:30 to give a crying Isabella her oobie. Woke up again at 5:15 to get her another oobie. Alarm went off at 6:30 and I hit snooze. Got up for real 7 minutes later. Woke CJ up, got Samson out of his kennel and got ready for work. Fed Samson then ate breakfast while chatting with Ceige. Went in and chatted with Isabella, brushed my teeth, kissed everyone good-bye, took a picture of the SOLD sign on our house and then left for work at about 7:45.
Have you ever snooped through someone else’s things? Did you find anything interesting?
Yes. One time I was dog sitting for someone and looked through all their pictures that were tucked in a drawer. Didn’t find anything scandalous though and I felt really guilty afterward!
What do you think happens when you die?
Part of me believes we go to heaven and are reunited with all our family and friends who’ve died already. We meet celebrities and Saints and God. Part of me thinks we’re reincarnated into another being. Who knows what really happens.
Are you superstitious?
Yes. I have an Indian pouch that I keep in every car I own. It protects me. I wear a Steelers t-shirt every game day. And I have to say the “Our Father” every night before bed. Not because I’m super religious but because I worry something bad will happen if I don’t.
Do people think you are younger or older than you actually are?
Younger. No one believes I’m 34. That’s fine by me – I don’t feel 34!
How did your parents’ relationship influence you?
It taught me what it means to be in a loving committed relationship. They’re still married after 40 years, which says a lot, and they’re still madly in love.
What were the three happiest moments of your life?
Graduating with honors from college, marrying CJ and giving birth to Isabella.
Now it’s your turn! Feel free to answer any of the questions in the comments or on your own blog!
