QUESTIONS:
Have you ever ‘dined and dashed” (i.e. eaten the meal and then run out the restaurant door without paying)?

Have you ever been in a car accident and either left the scene of the accident (providing it was a fender bender and not serious) or denied culpability for causing it when you did, (if it were minor or serious)?

(Oldie which has been asked many times before) Have you ever found a wallet or purse or some money (over $20) in the street and just taken it, thinking ‘finders keepers, losers weepers? Or would you be ‘good’ and hand it in?

What was the last thing you stole or shoplifted? If you never ever considered doing that, tell us your secret!

My answers:

No, I have never dined and dashed!!

No, I have never left the scene of an accident for any reason.

No, I once found a rolled up wad of cash at a night club where I was working for the evening and handed it to the manager. Later, My best friend and I (who was working with me; the job was a favor for her older brother) were rewarded for my honesty.

When I was a kid, I shoplifted a chocolate bar. I could not eat chocolate for a long time after that, I felt so guilty. Lesson definitely learned!! I did not even need it, just did it for the thrill of it, trust me, it’s not worth it. Your conscience will eat you from the inside out.

Thanks to Cee for sharing her questions and I borrowed from Suze so check out her answers here.

Share Your World-Better Late Than Never

I know, I know…Cee’s Share Your World was yesterday but I couldn’t get to it as I was busy with my Dad in the morning (he had his endoscopy yesterday) and then writing a story for TLL (The Last Line) which I also didn’t finish yet. Here are my late answers anyway:

What would you name your autobiography: My Life Was a Hot Mess

What do you prefer, sweet, salty, or buttery? Ugh, I have to choose? Sweet…Even if my sweet comes from Stevia these days (most of the time), I still find myself craving fat bombs or desserts over real food.

My stack of fatbombs!

What’s the finest education? Um, the school of hard knocks. I did not finish college, in fact, I barely got started before I got pregnant and decided to concentrate on family life and work. However, I had many teaching experiences over the course of my life in the military, of course in my raising, and now as a married woman with 3 kids. Aaaaand, I’m a voracious reader. My belief is that a college education costs far more than it’s worth. Experience counts more these days.

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week? Man, I just love it when my kids come to visit, I got to see all 3 boys, two of their girlfriends and one of their girlfriends sons. We enjoyed spending time in the pool and eating a meal together, even if it was brief…it’s better than not at all.

Cee’s Share Your World…

Yea! Now I have a new place to do challenges like this great one by Cee! She does this challenge every week on Mondays, (something that makes Mondays worthwhile), and I along with some other bloggy friends, love answering them.
You will see that Cee’s questions are in a bolded type…my answers will be plain Jane, sorry.

List things or events that changed your life?

  • Getting Married
  • Having kids
  • Quitting my “real” job

Getting married meant that I was not alone to face the world anymore, that was a welcome change. I mean, I had my family and friends, but having a partner who was also my best friend and getting to spend the rest of my life with him? That was a game changer!

Having my children changed my life each and every time. Each one was different and had their own special set of circumstances. My first, Sean, was born at Carswell Airforce Base, a challenge in itself. I was in labor with him for 22 hours before they declared my need of an “emergency” C-section!! I didn’t see him until sometime in the middle of the night, and when they handed him to me, I was alone in the room. I peeled back the blanket from his face and burst into tears. He looked just like me, it was uncanny, kind of how much I look like my mom. Joshua came next, I gained more weight with him than any of them, after the planned C-section, I was on a morphine pump because I was in so much pain. Before we even left the hospital, I developed the “baby blues” and cried for a solid week. They gave me some kind of pills and I slept a lot. My poor husband. Then came Chris, he was supposed to be my girl! He came out kicking and screaming, drop dead gorgeous and almost killed me. I had an allergic reaction to the drug they put in my spinal, spent a week in a dark room while my poor husband had to deal with seeing our newborn poked and prodded the whole time because he was born with a pneumothorax. (Hole in his lung) It’s a wonder I love them all so much, but I do.

Somewhere in my 22 year of working in the medical field, I had what we like to call a min-meltdown. My husband said the job was not worth my sanity and allowed me to quit. I have been trying to make up for it ever since. I have tried every MLM out there, made and sold crafts and now I’m hoping my writing is the charm that finally earns me a paycheck. Sorry guys, that was kinda long-winded!

Complete this sentence: Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No it’s…The newest thing- a car that actually flies! I saw it on Facebook and uttered that most famous line, “I gotta get me one of these!!”

What genre of music do you like? Well, hold on to your hats people, but this old lady loves to rock out! Bands like Korn, Shinedown and Volbeat really shake my tree, but honestly, I love all music. Yes, even the dreaded opera! If it’s country, I’m not as huge a fan, but I still listen…I was raised on it after all.

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week? I really appreciated my son Chris coming to hang out with his momma, of course, he played golf with his daddy first. 🙂 🙂 Then, the little toot fell asleep on me as I was in mid sentence about this movie that I saw. (I call him that even though he’s 30 now, he’ll always be my baby).
