I Was Interviewed!!

Denise over at Laughing with Spoons participated in an interview post. I thought it would be fun cause I love to answer random questions like these. Plus, it gets you, my bloggy friends a chance to learn a little about me. So, I wanted to participate to.

So, here are my questions:

1. What is one thing about yourself that you would like to change - and why?
Well, had this question been asked a year ago, first thing would have been my weight but since I finally conquered that daunting task (after 10+ years), now I think it would have to be my self-esteem and temper. My self-esteem isn't the greatest. It has helped out losing the weight but I still worry if my hubby finds another woman more attractive than me or when we are watching a program and there are model type girls half dressed, I get all uptight and say "uh, would you please turn this. I don't want to watch this crap!" I wish I can just be relaxed in my own skin as I'm not only hurting myself but setting a poor example for my daughter which I never wanted her to feel the way I do. As for my temper, something as little as someone giving me a dirty look will put me in a rage. People on the road, lack of manners and just rude people will get me all fired up. My heart will race and the anger will really get working in me that I won't be able to let the situation go. I have even been known to be revengeful. That was more so when I was younger. I have a daughter now. Those are definitely a couple things I would LOVE to change in me. Hopefully this doesn't change your point of view in me. I am really a bubbly, silly person, just don't piss me off is all! LOL!

2. When you are needing time alone (meaning from hubby and daughter) - how do you go about getting it and what is it you enjoy doing?
Hmm, this is a good one. The only time I usually get time alone from the hubby and my daughter is on Tuesdays and Thursdays when he's at work and she's in school. Tuesdays I spend at home puttering around the house, blogging and chatting on the phone. Thursdays after I volunteer at the school, I head straight over to one of my girlfriend's house and visit. However, some much needed ME time, I would probably have to say maybe going to the movies or watching a movie at home. I love watching movies. They relax me!

3. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Well, since five years really isn't that far away, let's get technical then. In five years, *gulp*, I will be the BIG 4-0!! AWWWWW!!! Not something I'm really looking forward to either. OK, that really depresses me now that I think about it. lol! Hmm, as long as the economy doesn't take us out, we'll more and likely still be living in this same house. I can't imagine anything really changing too much though. Perhaps my hubby will be in a better situation, employment speaking. I'm not too thrilled with what he currently has to go through and I don't wish this for him until he retires either. I want him to be respected and appreciated! If he does find a better job, perhaps it will be making more money and then allow me to stay at home which then we may consider having another abby-doo-doo. I'm still not 100% decided on this. I'm whishy-washy I guess you can say.

4. When was the last time you laughed so hard you cried...and what was it about?
I actually had to think about this one and ask the hubby and my baby girl. That's when I was reminded about last week or so when we my hubby put the sock on Ozzy's head. Click here if you missed it.

5. What is the scariest thing you ever experienced?

Wow, the scariest thing I ever experience? There are a couple things really but I'll just share one. Back in 1993, my cousin was getting married. It was about an hour to an hour an a half away from where we lived. During the reception, my dad had been drinking. It was my dad, mom, brother and myself. At the end of the night when we had decided to leave, my mom told my dad she would drive that he had too much to drink. My dad was being arrogant and refused to let her drive insisting he was fine. As we left the parking space, we had to drive down this long driveway out of the country club to get to the street. Once we got to that driveway area, my dad floored it. The three of us started screaming to slow down and that he was going to fast. As we neared the street, we barely hit a car as he was making his drastic right hand turn onto the street. My mom yelled at him to stop the car. He did and got sick in the process. She drove the rest of the way. Now that I look back at that, I can't understand WHY we would of even got into that car with him knowing how drunk he was. My dad was always the heavy in the house and what he said goes and you didn't think twice to argue with him. I was scared that night. Even getting in the car but I didn't think twice to argue with him. We were given a second chance and that will never happen again!

This was so cool. I asked her to interview me too and I will post it Monday.

I hope your self esteem gets better because from what I've seen you are AWESOME! Congratulations on the weight loss. I'm still trying to get mine under control...hince the running...I just can't stop eatting. I LOVE food. Running lets me do both but I have to be careful with only eatting one piece of cake instead of the whole cake :-)
To make you feel better I will be 40 this year :O
I'm not worried...yet
