Delving into the crazy world of crafts, cooking and kids…

You find that your best friend has stolen money to pay for medical treatment for a seriously ill relative. What would you do?

Hmm… I guess it depends on how much money it was, who their relative was and what I needed the money for. If they’re starving my kids to help pay for a heart transplant that will likely fail in a 94 year old grandma then I’d raise some serious hell. I also have a very low tolerance for people that steal from family and friends – that’s just super lame.

What three things you regret not learning to do?

I still, hopefully, have a lot of time left in my life to do all the things I still wish to do. I regret that I didn’t learn more things when I was younger because it would have been so much easier then.

I currently regret not learning how to become independently wealthy by 20 though. I also regret not learning how to play guitar, or speak in front of large crowds.

Manic Monday

How did you celebrate your last birthday?

We were pretty much broke, so we just hung out and did what we do when we’re broke – watch TV and dream of eating an Outback PrimeRib. {drool} I’ve never been big on doing things for my birthday. It’s so close to Xmas and really, it’s just another day.

What’s the last thing you bought yourself, just for fun?

I found the cutest fabric yesterday at WalFart for a dollar a yard. I had to have it, and knew instantly what I am going to make out of it. Or the “Spank Me, I’m Irish” button I picked up to wear at our St Paddy’s Day Bash. I buy a lot more stuff for the boys “just because” though.

What would the child you once were think of the adult you have become?

Probably that I’m fat and pretty dang boring. I always pictured myself as a tall, slim, beautiful, educated and jetsetting. While I’m no dumby the other 4 I fail horribly at. Spontaneity at 14 was wearing a Burger King crown at 1am and running through the sprinklers of a deserted golf course. Spontaneity at 25 is adding a little Louisiana Hot Sauce to your mashed potatoes. I wouldn’t change my current place in life for anything, but my 25 year old self would have some stern words with my 14 year old self.

Manic Monday for February 18th.
Manic Monday
What do you order when you eat Chinese food?
I usually stick with something tried and true like Orange Chicken, Sweet and Sour Pork or Beef with Broccoli. Absolutely nothing with seafood. I don’t trust seafood in Arizona.
How much have you controlled the course your life has taken?

Well, since I haven’t been on my own for too long I’d say not much. On occasions when I’ve tried to force the course of my life, it has completely backfired and veered 90° from where I ultimately wanted it to go. These days we just take them as they come and try to guide things in a gentle direction.

Whose opinion do you value when deciding how to vote?

Hrm… Opinions don’t matter to me so much as facts do. And who gives me the facts doesn’t matter either. I vote for who/what I think is best, not what someone else thinks.

Hop on over here to join in on the Manic Monday fun!
