Oh I am so excited for the weekend to finally be here!! I swear this was the longest week ever..for reals!!! So I want to first say thank you so much for all the sweet messages I was sent about Murphy being at our house. Just to update you all. I did find a very good auto shop just around the corner from our house and they couldn't have been nicer to me. The owner checked out my truck and did a few tests and let me know that it was just my battery and that if I wanted once I got the battery he would be more then happy to install it for me. What a super nice man!!! So I lucked out the local AAFES here had my battery in stock and as soon as i called Mr. M and told him he said he would put it in for me...case closed!!! Yayyyyyy for simple solutions!! As for the rest of my house falling apart that will get done next week. It much more important to me to get my truck running this week to be sure that I had a way to get my stuff done. All in all though I will say that we kicked Murphy's butt right out of our house and are doing just fine!! So thank you everyone for your kind words and as always I do appreciate each and everyone you.
Now let's get to the Friday questions so this weekend can get going already...what do you say??
1. Have you ever forgotten your child in a store or at school?
Nope. Now I have lost my child in a store before because she decided to play around in the clothe racks and I couldn't find her. I am so used to having my girls with me then when they are not with me I actually still have that feeling like I am missing something and will sometimes catch myself looking around for them. Yupp I am that crazy woman in the store that looks like she is lost because she is looking around for her invisible children!! Haha!
2. Where did you go on your very first date? (Like...first first, not first with your spouse or current significant other!
Ok well my very first date was actually quite the story. This boy who was friends with some of my friends from highschool asked me out and he ended up taking me to a party. Well of course there was drinking and all kinds of craziness going on at this party so it wasn't long before I asked to leave.I was seriously terrified about my mom finding out what was going on there and I just wanted to be somewhere safe..uh huh I was a goody goody back then!! So as we went to leave the party apparently some guy my date had had several run ins with ran up to my date and started yelling at him. The guy was drunk and holding a liquor bottle which he proceeded to smash into my dates face. As my date stood there bleeding and all I could think of was...1. I can't drive stick so how the hell do I get home now..2. my mom is going to kill me...and 3. I went on my first date with a moron!! Ughhhh
So needless to say he drove us both to the ER which was just around the corner from the house thank goodness and then one of his friends called my mom to let her know where we were. Now most of you are probably thinking that my mom showed up and beat the tar out of both of us but no she was actually very cool. She came in and asked the doctors about my date and then after finding out what had happened and that his father was out of town and not wanting him to be alone after this invited him to spend the night in the spare room. What a mom right?! Yeah whatever I was pissed at him and we didn't speak for a few days after that.
3. What's your "silly" fear? (We're not talking water and heights.)
Ok ok so I am going to admit something that I don't like to admit but sometimes have to. I have a phone phobia!! I have no idea how I got it or why but it is really hard sometimes. Every now and then I will have to call someone and it will take me forever to get the number dialed. I will half dial it and hang up and then a little more and hang up. I hate that I have this and it sucks because I would rather drive to an office then have to call someone to make an appointment. Talk about a waste of gas and time but I can't help it. I told you I had issues ya'll!!
4. Confrontation: do you cause it, deal with is as it comes, or run far far away?
OMG I HATE confrontations!! I will avoid them at all costs but if the time comes when I have to stand up for something then look out. Of all the things that I consider my qualities my words are the best of them. I can talk anyone into anything just about and if it comes down to someone getting under my skin to the point where I need to say something then that person will be leaving the room feeling like a micro midget! It is not really the best of qualities but yes I can belittle someone to the point of making them cry if I have to. There I said it..sighhhhhh I am not proud of it but sometimes my skill is needed. Almost never though so please don't think I am big fat meanie running around belittling people because I am not but I can hold my own that is for sure.
5. Wood floors or carpet?
Oh goodness!! From the time we have been in military housing and not had a choice to our very first house we bought and then sold I can tell you that I can not stand wooden floors!! I don't care how pretty and cute and nice looking they are...they suck!! You wear high heels and they scratch up and dent..you have animals just forget about them. I will take my carpet and my ceramic tiles any day over stupid stupid wooden floors!! So there!!
Ok so now that you know more about me and you are probably either intrigued or terrified of me go on over and get your questions done with Mama M. I know I have said it before but she truly is fabulous and I just love reading her blog.
Have a great weekend everyone and I will be speaking with you soon....oh and let me leave you with this I have something big next weekend going on and I will share it all with you soon!!! :)
