Tag Your It!

My friend Sandra at Dairy of a Stay at Home Mom tagged me Thursday (I haven't kept up with my blog reading this week). So asked....

(By the way, I'm glad you didn't ask me the same questions you answered as it might have looked like I was copying most of your answers.)

1. What is your biggest pet peeve?

Biggest????? Wow. I don't know. I have lots of small pet peeves but not a really big one. Most of them tend to be about other peoples behavior(!!). Wait -- how about people that claim racism is a thing of the past and that everyone gets made fun of. That steams me bad. And if its in my own home...its people not shutting drawers, doors, closets, etc. Cause really? What type of pig is so lazy they can't shut the napkin drawer? Or shut the cabinets after putting something away? I'm a pig and even I don't go that far.

2. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?

Wish I was naive enough to answer that. (A pressing question at the moment too..see #4.) Having traveled so much I know better. Home is where you make it -- which is what I have grown up under as did my mother. So really, anywhere that I can OWN a decent home and live comfortably on whatever income I have. And travel where ever I want to go any time I want. That is my perfect answer. Because where I live isn't as important as being able to visit all the other places I'd love to see.

3. Have you ever been searched by the cops? (LOL inquiring minds want to know)
No - I have never been caught. And these days I run with a pretty tame crowd. So I think I'm safe.

4. What is the one thing on your mind right now?

My dead husband. Don't panic. We had an appointment with our financial adviser for the first time in 4 years. Getting so close to retirement we are having to start thinking about the 1 million in benefits I will loose when he retires (should something happen to him). So I have all this research I have to do and I'm chasing my tail providing all new financial info because everything is out of date (a story in itself). One of the questions I have to answer before our next visit is WHERE would I want to go and buy a home and settle if hubs passed. Have to have the median house price and cost of living etc. I HAVE NO CLUE and its pretty much stumping me.

5. Favorite song right now.

Life is Beautiful - Sixx A.M.

But the song that has been constantly playing in my head like a family theme lately = Crazy Babies by Ozzie Osbourne

6. What talent do you wish you had?

Any talent that would make me like exercise and actually do it. Be a runner, a gymnist, whatever. This 5 pound a year weight gain has pushed me into fat momma status and I don't enjoy it.

7. Favorite drink.

Coca-Cola. With Coke and the Captain as a close second. (These are supposed to be honest answers right?)

8. In one word, how would you describe yourself.


So I'm supposed to tag 8 more people. I think I'm going top use the same questions that Sandra asked me because they are pretty interesting. So if I tag you and you do the questions leave me a comment so I can go check them out!

Have a great weekend all! Once again I'm off to camp. But this time its for "camp training" to get re-certified since Ohio doesn't consider Nebraska Girl Scout training good enough. Whatever. Its all adult girls out in the woods having fun.


(Except at night its in the 40's and we are in platform tents. Well, maybe it will make for some good blog fodder. But is that actually a good thing??)


  1. Oh, I'm definitely going to do this! Look for my responses next week...

  2. Love your answers! Thanks for thinking of me. I'll have to get to work on some answers:)

  3. Wow! I have only two things to say.
    1. I know you better than I thought. None of those answers surprised me.
    2. Thanks for not tagging me!

  4. I'll have to work on it- give me a few days. Strangely enough, I could almost quote you on #2 for my answer too. Have lived too many places already to think that one is better then the other!

  5. Just in case my email disappears into your spam folder...I wanted to let you know you are a winner!!! Oh yes you are!!

    If you have worked out what you have won, I might just hear your screams from this side of the Atlantic!


  6. *sigh* Okay, but only because it's you! *grin*

  7. LOL I loved your answers, especially the cops one lol
