*See below for next week’s Fun Monday topic.
CPA Mom asked for volunteers for this Interview Meme and I said send em over!
1) What skill or hobby do you have that people would be surprised to know?
Gee, I have no idea. I am an excellent baker. I make my own candy at Christmastime. I speak enough Spanish to find a bathroom, well maybe a bit more than that. I can ride a motorcycle, I should say I used to be able to ride a motorcycle- it’s been years. I’m really just your average woman.
2) What is your favorite thing to do, if time and money were not an object?
I love to research my family history. I would love to have the time, not to mention the money to be able to do more of this. I would go to the countries my ancestors are from and do research there. I could spend my days in dusty archives (mega dosed on allergy meds, of course) looking for traces of long dead relatives. I could visit graveyards and take pictures of family headstones (yeah, yeah, I’m a freak. Be glad you aren’t my husband- I’ve actually made him do this with me.) I would have the money to have a pro search for my great grandfather who I can’t find a damn thing on!
3) Where have you traveled? Where would you like to travel?
I have been to New York, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Virginia, Florida, Washington- state and DC.
I would love to go to Ireland, England, Norway, Germany and Disney World with my kids.
4) You have one week to live. What would you do?
I would spend as much time with my family as possible. I would write letters to my girls to be opened on special occasions. I would make videotapes for them, giving them the motherly “wisdom” I have. I would actually let someone take pictures of me, with my girls. I actually worry about dying (not obsessively or anything, but the thought has crossed my mind). I worry about my kids. The Big Guy would manage. He’d miss me but the girls are different, you know? There is so much I want to tell them but you have to wait for the right time. I can’t very well talk to the four year old about college, she’s still getting used to pre-school!
5) How satisfied are you that you are living the best life you can? What would you change?
This is a tough one. I think I’ve been going through a mini midlife crisis. My 20 year high school reunion is in a few months. (That explains it, right?)
Anyway, I’ve been thinking about my life lately.
I have a good life. I have a husband I love, children I adore, a good job, a nice home and can pay the bills.
Still, I feel like my life is missing something.
What? I’m not sure.
Sometimes I think it is another child. With my medical issues, not to mention the Big Guy just turned 50 and I’m 37, there will be no more children. I suppose I could do the whole infertility thing but I don’t think that is the route for us.
Sometimes I feel like I could be doing more. More what, I have no idea. When I figure it out I’ll let you know.
6) What was your favorite book as a child (we know your favorite book as an adult!)
I loved “Where the Wild Things Are”.
I boughtSanta gave it to Ebaby and she has no interest in it whatsoever.
I also had this big hardcover book called “The Nonsense Book”. My grandmother gave it to me. I loved that book. I wonder what happened to it?
7) Cloth diapers vs. disposable. Discuss.
Disposable. I am lazy. I do not want to wash poop out of a cloth diaper.
Anyone want to be interviewed? I’ll send you some questions just let me know in the comments or an email.
