random ramblings

My mind is nothing if it is not random these days, so I had to jump on this opportunity:

What color are your socks right now? White with green toes and heels. Mostly hidden though in my gym shoes.

What are you listening to right now? the whoosh of the air conditioner, and random household noises -- opening and closing doors, murmurings of conversation, and I think I hear a baby stirring, so I better hurry.

What was the last thing you ate? Teriyaki chicken and potatoes

Can you drive a stick? Yes! I learned on stick, and have one story that I wish to forget from those days (involving my first and only accident, albeit a small one).

Last person you spoke to on the phone? A fellow Chicago area homeschooler, one I have been friends with since our college days.

How old are you today? 37 (it sounds older each time I say it)

What is your favorite sport to watch on TV? Any that my husband or son are watching. I don't like watching for the sake of watching, but just for the time spent on something that interests them.

What is your favorite drink? Water. I hardly ever drink anything else, but I do like a good vanilla cream soda now and then.

Have you ever dyed your hair? Oh yes, once upon a time. I played the role of Anne of Green Gables in a high school project and had red hair for the occasion.

Favorite food? Just about anything ethnically interesting

What is the last movie you watched? Tooth Fairy. Not the best movie I've seen, but not the worst either.

Favorite day of the year? Christmas, and all the days leading up to it.

How do you vent anger? Breathe, breathe . . . and quoting Scripture -- a soft answer turns away wrath.

What was your favorite toy as a child? A little people tree house that popped open and shut and was oh so cool.

Favorite Season? Definitely fall. I love the beauty of the season and the cooling off after an often too hot summer.

Cherries or Blueberries? Cherries as long as they are fresh. If they are canned, frozen, or in a pie I'll take blueberries definitely.

Living situation? Hmm, full? Right now we have our six younguns and my MIL and FIL living with us. Enjoying the extra family time this affords.

When was the last time you cried? Toy Story 3, any one else? I could not believe I was bawling over a kid's movie!

What is on the floor of your closet right now? well, I don't have a closet, so I guess nothing.

What are you most afraid of? small animals and rodents, even dead ones for some reason

Plain, cheese, or spicy hamburgers? Swiss cheese, and mushrooms and onions if they are available

Favorite dog breed? I should say yellow lab since that's what we have, but more honestly I would have to say none. I am an animal tolerator.

Favorite day of the week? Thursday. We get a jump start on the weekend with pizza and a movie.

How many states have you lived in? just one -- Illinois. I have also lived in the Bahamas, but when I have been stateside, Illinois is always home

Diamonds or pearls?Pearls. I'm not big on diamonds. Even my engagement ring is a sapphire.

What is your favorite flower? Just about any. I love bold colors in flowers and love the smell of roses.

Did you get an H1N1 vaccine? No.

I saw this on Amy's blog who got it from Marsha, who got it from Meredith, who got it from Melissa... will you be the next?

Let me know if you join the fun!

Amy, Glad you are catching up. :-) I cried a few times in Toy Story 3, all related to Andy growing up and going away to college. I know we have a few years yet, but the movie played out a vivid reminder of how quickly time goes.

My 13 year old was just a little guy when we first met Woody and Buzz, now he's talking about high school and the "future." It goes too fast.
