Worst job you’ve ever had? don’t think I’ve had one…

What job would you pay NOT to have?

While we were in China, as we were riding to the country side we were on the free way & we noticed every mile or 2 we would see one person walking and picking up trash.. they would be all by themselves. Our guide told us that was their job. They would be dropped off every day early in the morning and walk “their” 1mile to 2 mile areas on both sides of the road and clean up, prun trees & flowers ..etc..etc… Then they would be by themselves all day until late that afternoon when they would be picked back up to go home.. only to start all over the next day! BORING!

If you could be a fly on the wall, where would you be? I’m getting ready to send some up-dated pics to Faith’s foster parents and I’d love to be a Chinese fly(.if that’s possible..) on the wall, so I could understand everything that they said !!

Favorite Bible verse right now? Jeremiah 29:11

Guilty Pleasure? I like to watch The Bold and the Beautiful! Ya’ll.. it’s only 30 mins long.. I can DVR it and sit down for 15 mins a day.. eating an oreo and watch it!

Got any confessions? Yup, I’m sometimes a blog lurker (in my opinion a lurker.. is one who doesn’t leave comments ..lol! ) I know.. I know.. I love for people to leave me comments! ;0)

If you HAD to spend $1,000 on YOURSELF, how would you spend it? I’d go to a spa for a day..then buy me a new outfit.. which ALWAYS makes me feel better! ;0)

Favorite thing about your house? We bought and re-modeled Matt’s grandmothers house, that was built over 50 years ago… this house has ALOT of memories.. In fact.. the same drive way that Matt learned to ride a bike on.. Broughton learned too! It’s just great!!!

Least favorite thing about your house? We live 10 miles out.. GAS prices is a killer!

One thing you are bad at? Snow skiing! UGH!! I can’t do it y’all!!

One thing you’re good at? Making homemade biscuits! Oh Yeah!! Bring on the Cane Syrup people!!! LOL!! It’s a Southern Thang!

If you could change something about your circumstances, what? We would be financially free!

Who would you like to meet someday? Beth Moore! I would love to sit down for an hour with her and just have a girl talk! I think there would be alot that I could learn from her!

What makes you feel sexy? I’ll keep that 2 myself! 😉

Who is your real life hero? A mother & father to a Severely handicap child. I applaud them! Also.. single parents… WOW.. I don’t know what I’d do without Matt! You GUYS ROCK!!!

What is the hardest part of your job? Patience.

When are you most relaxed? After the kids are down for the count.. TEE HEE!

What stresses you out? A VERY packed day.. When I was in school.. deadlines of reports and stuff.. UGH!! Probably I was stressed because I’m a procrastinator..Hey I told you I DO get’er done!

What can you not live without? My Bible & MY Sweet Jesus!

Do you agree or disagree with the recent article that reported that blogs are authored by narcissists? Okay, I have NO idea what this is… I’ll go Google it later.. LOL!!
