Sunday Stealing

The guys at Sunday Stealing go about the blogosphere finding memes to steal from other blogs. I like to participate so here we go!

1. The phone rings; who don't you want it to be? A telemarketer. I hate being rude but I hate that they call. I know they have a job to do but I don't like to waste my time with their stupid surveys or telling them "no" however many times it takes to get them off the phone. It pains me to be rude to someone but I loathe telemarketers' jobs.

2. When shopping at the grocery store, do you return your cart? If I have my kiddos, usually. Josh loves to take them back. I honestly make a conscious effort to park NEAR a return bin so that it's easy for me TO return my cart. If it's just Ben and I... depends on the time of day, traffic, heat, etc. But, honestly, I do my very best to return my cart.

3. In a social setting, are you more of a talker or a listener? Talker, definitely.

4. What was the last compliment that someone gave you? Andy hugged me yesterday and said that I was such a wonderful mother. After all the sacrifices he makes for me and Drew and Josh and Ben... I think HE is the wonderful one.

5. Do you play the lottery? Not a chance.

6. If abandoned alone in the wilderness, who would you want with you? Bear Grylls. :) He can get you out of anything!

7. Do you like to ride horses? Absolutely! I'd love to have one or two some day.

8. Did you ever go to camp as a kid? I don't recall ever going to a summer camp of any sort. My mom was a single mom for a while... we didn't have a lot of money to do such things. My summers were spent with my grandmother a lot of the time, working.

9. What is your favorite party game? I love games! I love Outburst, Life, Monopoly, Liverpool Rummy, Pictionary! I LOVE GAMES! Not playing favorites!

10. If a sexy person was pursuing you, but you knew he/she was married, would you go for it? Not only no, but HELL NO.

11. When was the last time that you lied? On the last answer. JUST KIDDING! Hmmm... I don't know. I try to be very transparent. No one can live in a web of lies for too long without getting caught.

12. Could you date someone with different religious beliefs than you? I don't know. Religious views really translate to how people live their lives, value other people/animals, other's place in the world. I couldn't be with someone who didn't hold women as an equal to a man or that held animals as sacred or something. People that didn't listen to music or dance... that spoke in tongues...that's all weird. I guess I'd have to say... no then, huh? LOL

13. If you have a S/O, who pursued who? If not, do you like to pursue or be pursued? He pursued me. I don't like to be pursued or to pursue. I like things to just happen if they're meant to be. I won't chase anyone.

14. Use six words to describe yourself. Honest. Loyal. Hardworking. Mother. Dependable. Creative.

15. Name a song that could make you cry? Angels Among Us by Alabama. Reminds me of my grandmother.

16. Are you pleased with your education? Not so much. I'm always eager to learn more and go back to school.

17. How do you feel about gun control? I think guns should be legal. People need to be able to defend themselves. The "bad guys" will always be able to get guns so if you take them from the good, law-abiding citizens, you're leaving them as sitting ducks. How fair is that?

18. If your house was on fire, what thing would be the first thing you grabbed? My children.

19. How often do you have a romantic weekend? Never. Pathetic, isn't it?

20. Do you think more about the past, present or future? I'd say the present and the future. The past is gone and there's nothing you can do about it. The present is a gift and the future is something to plan for NOW in the present.

21. What was the last adult magazine that you have read? What is an "adult" magazine? Does that mean like Playboy or some other smut? Or like, Newsweek or Time or something. I don't read them. I read Family Circle and Family Fun and Taste of Home. :)

22. What are you told about your eyes? They're beautiful (and very blue). I'm told I have long eyelashes.

23. How tall is just right? For me or for someone else? I'd love to be about 5'7" Then I'd actually have a waist instead of boobs and then hips. I hate not having a torso.

24. Where is your dream house located? In my dreams, DUH! :) Estes Park, Colorado. But it's only a dream home if my family is there with me.

25. Do you have a secret fetish? IF I told you it wouldn't be a secret anymore, now would it? LOL...

26. Have you tried bourbon? If yes, what type? I don't think so. I mean, I've had Jack Daniel's and Coke. I'm not a drinker, however, so I'm not one to experiment with different types.

27. Have you ever seen a male or female stripper? In the movies, yes. In person, no. Oh wait, I take that back. I was at a dance club once and they brought a girl out on the floor and a guy stripped for her there (down to a thong) but I didn't care to watch. I think it's gross. I went to the bar with my friend and sat until it was over. I've never stepped foot inside a strip club. They just repulse me. The stupidity of the men shoving money down the girl's thongs... the girls that "ho" themselves out for money...

28. When was the last time you were at TGI Fridays? When my dad was in the hospital having knee surgery I ate lunch at a TGI Friday's in Arlington while I was waiting for him to come out of recovery.

29. When was the last time you were at Church? ...a couple of weeks ago.

30. Where was the furthest place you traveled today? ?Today? To the kitchen. LOL

31. What was your favorite job? Being a mom... hands down.

32. What condiments do you like at your BBQ? I think it's weird how people call it a BBQ when you're actually just grilling something. If it's truly a BBQ, then you have bar-be-que sauce! That's the only condiment necessary at a BBQ.

33. Bud is hosting Thursday Thunks this week. Will you play? No, because I don't know what it is. :) Sorry, Bud.

34. Do you look like your mom or dad? I've been told I look like my dad.

35. Who was the last person that you showered with (it's okay to leave out the name)? Drew. He was overly tired but dirty and stinky. He needed a quick wash off and to go to bed so I made him get in the shower with me... 30 seconds later, he was out and getting ready for bed.
