Because you need to know more about me part 4

I offered to take questions from a lot of people it seems to be getting me a lot to post about. I have more to do but I am trying to do them in order of when I received them. Surprisingly though with all the questions I've gotten no one has asked the same questions! So it is still fun for me to answer.

This particular set of questions came from Beccy at Peppermint Tea.

Here are your questions, hope you like them!

1) What is the first thing you are planning to do when you arrive in Alaska?

Let's see the first thing? Sleep! haha. It will take us about 4 days to get there in two vehicles on pulling another vehicle and the other pulling a trailer. We will also have all 4 kids with us 2 cats and a hamster. We are still trying to figure out what to do with the cats and the fact they will need to use the bathroom at some point in time on the way up or they will be some uncomfortable kitties!

After that? Hmm I don't really know. I think we will be pretty busy moving things in. Getting the kids ready for school, finding new doctors because as you know we see several different ones and certain parts of the family can't go long without seeing a doctor to get procedures in place such as my iron transfusions.

I also want to figure in some time to look around and see the scenery before the winter sets in and it gets dark all the time and we get snowed in!

2) You have 24 hours where money is no object, describe your day.

Hmm I'd probably start looking for a house if money was no object! Besides that we would take the kids and buy a lot of clothes. Cause we are going to need stuff in Alaska. I am boring I guess when it comes to this one. I don't really know of any places I would want to go with only 24 hours although we may also decide to use money to fly the kids up to Alaska with the cats instead of driving with them all! Honestly I like to shop though. Usually not for myself though. I can see a lot of spoiling going on!

3) What is the most embarrassing thing you have ever done?

Honestly my life is an embarrasment! I do things on a daily basis leaving other people in tears! The most emabarrasing one that I can think of right now was the day I took all the kids to the mall during Christmas when they were little and lost Joshua twice! It was not fun to have the same security gaurd to bring him back and have this child security guard telling me how to watch my child better. If only Joshua would have paid attention it would have been much better. I don't want to tell you how many times that boy has been lost! He is so distracted by things he wants to see that all I had to do when he was little was reach down to grab something for one of the other kids and he was gone. hmm I'm sure if I thought really hard I could think of something better but people keep reminding me of that one....It was awhile before I took all the kids to the mall by myself again. Especially during the holidays.

4) Do you think you spend too much time in the blogging world?

Yes definetly. When I first started this thing it wasn't so bad. I posted occasionally but did really have any other readers besides Becci at miraclebabyb. I looked at some of her other readers sometimes but didn't always have the nerve to comment. I finally did on a couple and pretty soon I had others commenting on my blog, I would comment back and it just went up from there. Now I spend so much time on blogs reading others and posting much, much more on my own. Its a lot more fun to post blogs when I know some one else appreciates them!

Problem is now I tend to read at work whenever I'm not to busy and I get a little to distracted. I can sometimes stay up to late at night writing my own posts and reading yes I spend to much time!

5) Where do you see yourself in 40 years?

40 years? I don't want to think about it....Really.
I do still see myself with Kelly maybe sitting in our rocking chairs enjoying watching our great grandchildren playing.

I don't know if we will still be in Alaska that all really depends on how our health is and if our children stay in Alaska. I always have had this hope my children stay close enough so we can watch their families grown up.

If you wanna play, here’s what you do.

1. Leave me a comment saying, “Interview me.” If I don’t have your email address, leave it for me in the comments.

2. I will respond by emailing you five questions. I get to pick the questions.

3. You will update your blog with the answers to the questions.

4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.

5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

Hi Terri
this looks like fun... you had some interesting questions asked of you... I have no idea what I'd do with the $$ for 24 hours!! That's a tough one! cuz i'd wanna give it all away... If I shopped I think I'd get someone else to do it though... it would be utterly exhausting...Anyway... If you want to .... interview me.... but be nice!!!

I'm always nice. I just like to ask questions that make people think. Anyway I don't think nailgirl is upset.

Beccy said...

Great answers Terri. I'm fascinated with your move to Alaska.

I'm also trying to curb my hours online because I have a life here as well!

Terri, your answers always give one a great deal of thought, and they have so much emotion - evident in your luv for you children.

*** I so luv your answer to 40 years from now - may have you converted to smoking a pipe ***

Enjoy the day and don't leave the blogging world - we all need your input!!
