There was a blog floating around Pinterest where a list of questions were compiled so that you and your husband (significant other) could get to know each other a little better. Like the author of this blog, I thought it would be neat to answer them so that my children could get a little insight about their momma! So that is what I have done. It was originally 30 questions, but I have pared it down for myself. I hope you enjoy following along with me
This is part two of four
-Describe a legitimate fear you have and explain how it became a fear.
I have a fear of anything fiberglass that has not been sealed. When I was about 4 years old, my dad had a model airplane in our living room. He was building it for a friend. The finished product would have about a 9 foot wingspan. The cowling of this airplane was unfinished fiberglass. Dad had epoxied lead weights into the nose of it. The weights looked cool and I wanted to touch it. When I reached in, I got static shocked. Bad. Like, I still have a scar from a minor burn that occurred from that shock 21 years ago.
-Describe your relationship with your parents.
My Mom and Dad. Without them I would not have a clear idea of how to live life. They have been a wonderful example of parents and spouses. They are always teaching me about the love of Jesus. My parents will do anything for me as well as my new family. They help to provide for us when we are struggling and can’t make it on our own.
-List 10 things you would tell your 16 year-old self, if you could.
*Just wait. You don’t need a boyfriend. The two you have this year won’t amount to anything in the future. One even gets arrested later for child porn issues.
*You really don’t need to be in a hurry to have your driver license, either. You don’t get your own car till you are 21 anyway and you’ll be fighting with Mom and Dad for the car keys more often than what’s needed.
*Speaking of Mom and Dad just shut up and listen. They know what they’re talking about after all.
*Your little brother dies in a car accident Oct. 2008. Be nicer to him. And push him to get his DL more than a month before leaving for school. Maybe more driving practice won’t get him killed. Tell him you love him more often.
*You have a strong Faith. Remember this when Kyle does pass. Don’t go as long as I did without church.
*You have two beautiful daughters with a wonderful guy. The first one is out of wedlock, but don’t let it bother you too much. Your whole family life falls into place after this. And Mom and Dad do eventually come around. Just do as they say and eventually Matt will charm the socks off them, anyway! Oh, tell your Dad’s family about Riley BEFORE you go into labor. Whatever Dad tells you about Granddaddy Ted, don’t believe it. Everyone will be THRILLED to have a baby in the family again.
*Marriage is tough. 110% tough. But you have it easier than most. Work hard together and you’ll make it!
*College is long for you. Buckle down early and don’t goof off your first year. In fact, dump that Goober you’ve dated forever and don’t pick classes that he’s taking. That will just hinder you in the long run. Keep your grades up and you will go far. You can do EC’s, just don’t go out of town EVERY week with the cow show team. This, too, will hinder you. Just focus on school!
*Handle your money better. You never learn to save until it’s almost too late. You and Matt tend to miss out on a lot of fun because you’re so broke all the time. You do start a great craft business that brings in your own money, but sales are far and few between and the money seems to come when you need it most!
*RED LIGHT CAMERAS! Avoid the intersection in town by the old
HEB. You and Matt get 4 tickets there in 2012
-What are the 5 things that make you most happy right now?
*Working out six days a week. I’ve never felt better since leaving marching band behind with high school. My joints don’t hurt near as bad and I actually have energy!
*My craft business. I love that I have a business doing something that I actually ENJOY!
*I am happy that my girls are at the ages where they will play happily with each other. Sometimes that is not the case, but for the most part, I love hearing them squeal in delight when they are playing in their room together.
*Driving alone in my truck makes me happy. It’s rare, but when it happens, the windows are down and the tunes are up!
*Date nights make me happy. They are also far and few between.
