I found this interview thing rather fun......I just may be interviewing you soon ;)
First....how are we related? What would you call us? I'm not sure if there is a term for how we are related. Your husband's mother is the sister to my sister-in-law. Since I don't think there is a term for that relation...I just consider us sisters.
You've known G for a long time.....what is your earliest memory of him? Probably of him running around in this outfit that made him look like that Angus guy from the group AC/DC! He would wear these long shorts and a button down shirt with suspenders! I am not kidding. And I'm pretty sure his bangs were cut straight across. Now, remember, he was probably about 6 years old!
You were married before, how long have you been a single mom? I was married before? Oh yeah, I forgot. I have been a single mom for 18 years!
What is one thing you wish married moms would not say to single moms? That they "can't wait until their husband gets home so that he can take over"!
We are different in so many ways.....you are like the Ethel to my Lucy, or the Frog to my Toad, or the Sonny to my Cher.....we are super close, but butt heads to...why is that? Because we are individuals who don't feel the need to brown nose each other. We are so secure in our friendship that we don't have to check up on each other or worry about who the other is hanging around with. When you hang out with or talk about Laurie or Mindy or whomever, I don't care, it doesn't bother me, I don't get jealous...because I know that you and I don't have that same kind of relationship that you have with them. Does that make sense? Probably not, but you know what I mean. By the way, I think I'm Lucy....because I'm funnier.
You have always been my grammar police....have you always been knowledgeable about grammar? Was english your best subject? I have only become "good" at grammar since homeschooling and because grammar is about the ONLY thing I can teach, I have to make sure that everyone around me talks properly!
You have left some interesting comments on my blog.....I know it's just YOU being YOU.....do you feel that you are often misunderstood? Oh my goodness YES!!! When I leave those posts, I would never have EVER thought that someone would actually sit there and take the time to even think about them being rude or whatever. If I ever thought or wanted to say something rude to someone, I would keep it to myself because I don't feel the need to hurt people. What kind of person would I be? I just always figured that you know me, that you know I have a very dry sense of humor and those posts that I wrote were meant for you only, not for someone to think too much about....now that sounds harsh but it's not meant to be. If I am one thing, I am truthful!
What is 1 of your biggest pet peeves? Only one? Probably arrogance...or people who think they are better than me because they have more money than me, a better horse than me, a better house than me, a husband, or money....I could go on...the funniest thing about that is....there will always be people who have more money, a better house, a better husband than THEY do!!! No sense in trying to keep up with the Jonses. We all need to be content with what we have and to get on our knees every day thanking Jesus for what He has given us.
You are known for "calling the manager".......do you still do that? I have to still be like that. I definately believe in standing up for myself...in a kind and gracious way...I believe that even more because I have a daughter who has severe learning disabilities and some people have walked all over her and have treated her very poorly....I cannot allow that to happen to her and if I don't teach my girls to stand up for themselves, then who will?
What do you want to be when you grow up? I want to be a strong, loving, kind, caring, selfless Christian mom, daughter and friend. You know what? Although I'm 48 years old and getting old, fat and gray, I still feel like a 25 year old and I still believe that I'm a pretty cool mom. Like I say to my girls...what friend of yours mom would do half the stuff I do with you guys? You know Mimi, even though I don't have a husband, or alot of money or a house with enough bedrooms so my girls can have their own rooms....I am so very thankful and grateful for everything that we do have and I wouldn't change anything.
Will I ever be able to get the visual of G as Angus out of my head??? Funny thing.....he remembers that as well.....even the exact clothes he was wearing. Too funny.
