I got this survey from Kim http://journals.aol.com/demandnlilchit/Ishavedmylegsforthis/
Part 1: The Birth of You
Were you a planned baby?: Yes, but no more after me...LOL!
Were you the first?: Nope, I'm da baby.
Who was present at your birth?: Probably just mom and the hospital staff. This was the "olden days".
Were your parents married when you were born?: Yes.
What is your birthdate? May 7, 1965
Part 2: The Family
Are you parents married or divorced? Married for 45 years!
An only child?: No, but it wouldn't have hurt to have a few more sibs.
If you have siblings are you oldest, middle, or youngest?: The baby. The annoying little sister, in love with all my brothers friends. *sigh*
What are your sibling's names?: Jim III (we still call him Jimmy, but he wants to be called Jim)
Which parent do you get along with best?: I refuse to answer on the grounds that it may incriminate me!! Let's just say my mom is like me and my dad is a peacemaker at heart.
What do you fight about? silly things. usually when I feel someone is<FONTFACE="COMIC MS? Sans> trying to run my life...
Do you have step parents?: No
Part 3: The Friends
Do you have more than one best friend? Yes
What do you like to do when you are together? Unfortunately, all my good friends are long distance...We move waaaay too much and this is a touchy subject for me
Do you share the same interests?: Some
Which friend can you tell anything to?: I have a group of cyber friends, it's a private group, but not really anyone IRL - I tell my mom a lot
Part 4: Your Personality
How high/low is your self esteem?: I esteem myself well in general, except when it comes to looks particularly
Do you get depressed about things easily?: No.
Are you an extrovert (outgoing) or an introvert (reserved)?: I'm an introvert - an open book if you know me, but it's hard to break through that invisible barrier into intimacy
Are you happy?: Extremely!
Do you live life to the fullest?: On occassion - so that would be a no.
Part 5: Appearance
Are you comfortable with the way you look?: Yes and No. If I were to have something fixed, I wouldn't be able to choose just one thing. So it's a real kick in the rear to have to have my boobs worked on - I was relatively satisfied with them. But yes because I really don't think about my appearance beyond the initial getting ready in the a.m. - just as long as it's okay.
Describe your hair? Not thick enough, naturally curly, meaning straight in back, wavy in parts, frizzy at the temples and curly elsewhere. Mousy brown with lots of gray (and I must mention the gray has a mind of it's own, kinda wiry and sticking out at odd angles), and a gray streak in front, which I like.
How do you dress? casual-comfortable - but in Hawaii, I dress in shorts and t-shirts
Part 6: The Past
Were you a strange child?: No. Not according to me. :-)
What did you used to love that you no longer do? Pintos (the car), Tom Cruise - but otherwise, I'm pretty faithful
Do you have the same friends?: I still keep in touch with some of my high school friends. The last reunion firmed that up, and having them on my bc prayer team firmed that up too.
Was there anything in your past that was traumatizing? No. The ideal Leave-It-To-Beaver childhood. I've been very blessed.
Part 7: The Future
What is your ambition? To be the mom that my kids need, and to always be willing and eager to do what God wants me to do.
Are you scared of growing old?: no
Do you want to get married?: I am married!
Part 8: The Outdoors
Do you prefer indoors or outdoors?: I'm an indoor body, but I do love that we can eat every single meal outdoors! And I love *weather*! I just don't want to be hot or cold!
Favorite Season: Fall - relief from the heat and anticipating the holidays
Do you like walking in the rain?: I hope so - I've been caught in the rain at least 4 days in the past week and a half. As long as I have a hat and don't have to worry about my hair frizzing.
Part 9: Food
Are you a vegetarian?: Absolutely not. Me like me some meat. But I am cutting back on the red meats and portions.
What is your favorite food?: I'm on a guacamole kick, and fresh pineapple kick - I love brownies and addictive spicy hot foods - like Mexican.
What food makes you want to gag? eggplant, liver
What is your favorite dessert?: Fudge, well, it's my favorite sweet
What is your favorite restaurant?: I like me some Bojangles! I have favorites in every town we've lived - except here...
Are you a fussy eater? Not in my opinion, but in my mom's opinion.
Part 10: Relationships and Love
Are you single or taken?: Taken
If taken who is the lucky guy/girl?: Gary
Do you think love is the best feeling in the world?: Hmmm.... I guess so, never thought about it. (obviously I take it for granted)
Do you believe in love at first sight?: maybe for others. Sure, why not?
Part 11: Experiences
What was one of your greatest experiences?: I've had several really great experiences, but that ultrasound telling me that we had twins ("did I tell you two or three?") and that pregnancy was great.
What was one of the worst? miscarrying just a couple of days after getting a positive pg from my IVF.
Have you ever done drugs? No
Have you ever thought you were going to die?: No, even though I've faced death a couple of times now.
So now you have learned a lil more about me....if you do this in your own blog send me back a link please!
I want to amend the "love at first sight" answer. I absolutely fell in love at the first sight of my babies. Of course, I loved them already, but my goodness, I was head over heels! As far as my DH is concerned, I absolutely was smitten, he is good looking, but what got my heart was I met him initially at the college orientation dance and he memorized my address and wrote me a 4 page letter just a few days later. And he wrote me all summer. Then we started dating/hanging out when school started. Letters. That's what snagged me.
