Because you need to know more about me part 7

Okay today was actually a really nice day and went to the beach but I am sick today so I am going to post about it tomorrow hopefully because I got alot of really good pictures and even though I wasn't feeling well I had fun. I have already decided to take the day off because at the moment I have no voice so obviously cannot do my job very well! so I am going to post my last list of 5 questions.

Todays questions come from Ellie at The Cedar Chest .

1. If you never married and had children what is one thing you would have liked to do with your life?

Honestly Ellie, I have no clue. From the time I was a little girl I wanted to get married and have babies. I know sounds weird doesn't it? Before I married Kelly and had Izzak I wanted to be a Nannie. I'm just a kid person I guess. Thats one of the reasons I hate working so much I just want to be with my kids and be a mom

2. Name a moment that stands out in your mind that defines who you are today.

I don't know if there was any one moment. Although when Izzak was born he was born with a birth defect that required surgery before he turned a year. We had to be more cautious with him as he was more prone to infections. Growing up us kids were all pretty normal no health issues no surgeries, nothing. I had in my perfect little world not thought things would be any different for me and my family. I was very wrong. I beleive from the moment we were told something was wrong with him we grew up a lot quicker (we were only 19). I became a different mother then I had planned as my parenting view did not involve frequent drs visits and specialists. It wasn't a huge thing in the grand scheme of things but it kind of prepared me for what all we have faced with our kids. I learned that my perfect little boy/girl didn't have to be what everyone else deems as "perfect".

3. Favorite comfort food is?

Baked potatoes with lots of cheese and bacon!

4. Do you have a special talent you wish you could use, but there is no time for it right now, if so, what is it and if you had the time, how would you use that special talent?

I don't know if I have a special talent.. I scrapbook and like to put things together and my mother and friends say I am talented there. But honestly I can't put my creativity into use anywhere else. My house definetly is not creative!

5. Country or City Life? Tell me why or why not.

I imagine a country life. Only because at this point I just want some peace in our lives. We have had so many problems with neighbors that I would love to live somewhere I didn't have to see anyone when I walk out my front door.

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

Delightful insight through the questions and answers and so impressed with both you and your hubby's strengths and determination against those (whose tongue - is ill equipped for speech).

I hope you are feeling better today, and I guess I am coming out in sympathy too - cos I got a cold.

So luv the Madison video (on Frannie's site) a wonderful song and how sweet to see McKenzie offer her little sister encouragement too.

Take Care

Hope the kids are looking after you?

Hi Terri,

Great answers. I like the comfort food one. Potatoes are my kind of food too. These "interview questions" have been really insightful. I liked doing them, but it does take time to think what to ask, hence, I am not a reporter/talk show host person. :)

Hope you are feeling better soon.

I like the new look too. I need something new, every other site I go on has the exact same template I have, however, I have no idea what I am doing and so it is just the same old boring blog....
