Answers, get your red hot answers

First off, I love these questions. You people are way more entertaining than I ever could be. Seriously. Thank you for humoring me and helping me to have something to write about. I needed it. Obviously I'm going to be gone for the weekend, but hopefully I will have much too write about when I get back. Five days with my step-mom tends to do that too me. Secondly, I love you all for what you said to anonymous. I can't tell you what it means to me, to have such amazing friends. I have decided to answer the asshat. Not because I think I should, but because I have something to say to it. Yes, all asshats are hereby, it's. They don't have a name, they don't get treated with respect.

So here we go:

Kirsten: Name your favorite thing about each of your kids. I love that Morgan is so inquisitive and independent. I adore the way she yearns for knowledge and I absolutely love her sense of humor. Bailey is about the sweetest person anyone could ever hope to meet. She is loving and kind and giving. I love snuggling with her on the couch for hours. She knows no stranger and the world is her friend. She's also old for her years, she understands more about people than some adults do. Harrison, god i adore everything about him. He is a serious little dude and that is kinda fun. I love trying to make him smile, even though it can take hours. I also love how easy going he is.

How did your husband propose? Um...he didn't, I did. I asked him if he'd marry me. We were in Santa Monica, it was like 2am and we were swinging on the swings. I asked him. He said yes and the we went and bought rings the next day. Sweet, simple, easy.

What did you have for dinner last night? A egg, bacon and cheese sandwich. With some fruit salad. We are big on breakfast for dinner around here. (I answered this on Wednesday of last week. Sorry, it's been a rough couple of days in my world. Last night, I had dinner with Maura and there was cake.)

Instamom: Knowing that you just got back from Hawaii, what I want to know is where in the world you would most like to visit and what you would like to do there. I'd love to go to Italy and see it all. Spend months there or even a year. I'd love to rent a villa in Tuscany and learn Italian. I'd love to visit every art museum in Rome and ride gondolas every day for weeks in Florence. I adore Italy; the country, the people, the food.

Kari: What song could you listen to over and over and over, and.... This is a hard one, because I always have a CD full of songs that I can listen to over and over to in the moment. But always? Um anything ever sung by James Taylor. Or the Dixie Chicks. Or Dreamland by Mary Chapin Carpenter, which is what I sing to my babies at night.

J from Ireland: What would you do if you won the lottery? Move to Italy for a year? Buy a house in Malibu on the beach, a condo in Hawaii and maybe an apartment in New York. I'd pay off my dad's house and buy my siblings each a house and a car. Then, I'd donate a ton of it and save the rest.

Anonymous: are you on meds? Yes, in fact I am. I have a lot to say to you anonymous, but I know it would all go over your head. After the weekend that I've had, I just can't address this like I had planned. But please hear this: medications are not a magic pill. I still have the propensity to get depressed, maybe just not as often or as bad. When I needed them the most, I was thrilled to have them. It made it where I could get outta bed, take care of my children, shop at the grocery store. My depression was a symptom of my life in the moment, but that doesn't mean it magically went away with the meds. Meds do not take away all of your symptoms, just makes them more manageable. If I am too depressing too you; not entertaining enough, please just go away. This is my blog about my crazy world. I don't need your attitude or harshness.

Anymommy: What movie(s) have you watched more than twice? Why? If I love a movie, I can watch it all the time. Favorites include: 13 Going on 30, Mary Poppins, Oceans 11, The Incredibles, Transformers and National Treasure. Why? Because I am a creature of habit. I can enjoy it as much the first time as I do after 25 times.

Jaden: If you could teach yourself something, what would it be? Italian. I have always wanted to learn Italian. I find it to be the most beautiful language. But I am horrible at languages. Flunked out of Spanish and was kicked out of French in High School.

If you could go on a vacation- any vacation- and take one person- BUT it couldn't be your hubby or kids, who would you take and where would you go? I would love to go on a girls trip with some of my lovely bloggy friends. If I win the lottery one day, I will make this happen.

And last... If you were a candy, what would you be and why? Sour jelly beans. Because they are sweet and sour and you are never quite sure which it's going to be.

Maura: If you were a tree, what kind of tree would you be? A maple. I find them to be gorgeous and always changing. They are my absolute favorite tree. They are big and strong and they are survivors.

Great answers - all of them. I'm sorry you had to deal with the anon nonsense, but I love your strong, honest response.

I have watched Mary Poppins and The Sound of Music way too many times to count.

Jaden Paige said...

LOL, I love all your answers... but my favorite is the candy one! Ahh- we can all be a bit sweet and sour at times, huh?

Kari said...

That was great! I love Mary Chapin Carpenter too! My husband and I totally fell in love to the song, "Asking us to Dance". Thanks for the memory of that...

Italy is my favorite place on earth (so far)...we should rent the villa together..

This is an awesome post. I'm so sorry I missed the call for questions! Maybe we can do an interview post. :) What do you think?

Hang in there, kid. You have plenty of interesting things to say, and I always love talking to you. Hope to hear from you soon!
