I have hated rules all my life....
Yes, I hate rules and I will buck them anytime I get the opportunity (this does not include laws of which I follow). And, this is probably why life is sometimes hard for me because I scoff at rules, rule making, and rulers. And if you put my Irish temper and my free spirit attitude together, well…no wonder I’m a mess. My mom needs an award for raising a child like me. She will not confirm this because she is nice, but I was a willful child or at least I felt like it. I don’t mention my dad who also raised me (getting the award) because I’m pretty positive I get these character building (uh huh) traits probably from him. He and I walk to the beat of our own drummers. There is nothing wrong with marching to our own beat, except the world is all about rules. The good thing is, I still have my family (minus one husband), friends, and (currently) a job--in spite of my rebel like mindset.
An award was bestowed upon me by Jules at Trying to Get Over the Rainbow. You have to visit her blog. She is hysterical. (I’m not sure she knows how funny she is.) When she starts talking her "Just so you know..." stuff, I know I'm going to laugh. I haven’t received an award in awhile so this is quite the treat.
Just so YOU know. Jules needs prayers for her dad who had a (small) heart attack. It may be a blessing he found out this way that something is wrong.
Now, here are the questions I must answer to receive my award. I will reserve the right to pass it on at a later date.
What is your signature color? My signature is always in black. Is that what this means? Actually, I love blue and yellow.
What is your most embarrassing moment? I have none that I wish to talk about because they are…embarrassing.
Would you ever get anything pierced other than your ears. If so, what? Does a sewing machine needle through the tip of my finger count? Well it didn’t go completely through. NO, I will not pierce anything other than my lobes. I’m having enough trouble keeping my ear lobes from sagging with my big ole hoop earrings. I don’t want anymore trouble. Ok?
Are you a social butterfly or a homebody? I am a social butterfly unless I want to go home. True story.
Are you done having babies or do you want more? I always want more babies, says she who has an empty nest. But, having them could be a challenge.
Are you loyal to your hairstylist or do you try every salon in town? I'm not a cheater. Or at least I would go out of town to cheat.
How many times have you moved in your life? Not many. It would be easier to tell you, I've lived in Illinois and Missouri and hoping for Hawaii as soon as I become that trophy wife.
If you could plan your vacation with just you and your love where would it be? First of all, I would need to find my love. He seems to be lost. I have the bloodhounds looking, though. But let’s just say, I found my love and we went on vacation. I would like to go um...anywhere.
My parents celebrated a wedding anniversary Friday. We had a great time at their house. I'm late, but Happy Anniversary, Mom and Dad. Last year, I blogged about them and bought them a gift. I barely got them a card this year and...they still love me or so they say. And well, I choose to believe them. Yes, I do.
I am very blessed to have them as my parents.
What are your random thoughts this Monday?
