Don't Be Trying To Stir My Koolade When You Don't Even Know The Flavor.

Dear Friday,

Thank you for coming.  I feel like you were a little late and I would like to discuss the lack of commitment you show throughout the week-because, well, let's face it, you just aren't showing up...If I only showed up to do my job once a week I would be fired...consider this your warning, I do not want to have to fire you...

Ugh this week has been a mess for me.  Hans is sick (still has a quite nasty cough-of which she shared with MY FACE for approximately 20 minutes this morning-and then went back to sleep...she's a giver that one), Hubs is on nights so he hasn't really been home (which I hate) work is C-R-A-Z-Y, my little brother was just deployed, when I went to sleep last night gas was $3018/gallon, and when I woke up it was $3.32...WTH?  I needed Friday to get here much sooner than it did...
Now on to....

1. Have you ever forgotten your child in a store or at school?

Egads!  No!  I believe Hans is still too loud fresh & new for me to do that...She doesn't even let me leave the kitchen without her, I would never make it out of a store full of strangers without her!  Hubs on the other hand...
Also-Hubs and my mom are the ones who drop Hans off at school and then pick her up because I am already at work by the time her school starts and I am still at work when school is over...(before you judge, I would LOVE to be able to be the one to drop her off and pick her up but if I don't work we can't afford to send her to school then there is no need to pick her up because we will be living in a van down by the river...and I do make every effort to attend her school functions-parties awards ceremonies etc.)

2. Where did you go on your very first date? (Like...first first, not first with your spouse or current significant other!)
very first date?  I mean does that mean the first time I went somewhere with a boyfriend-or the first time I went somewhere with a boyfriend and he paid-because those are 2 separate instances. So here we go.  The first time I ever went somewhere with a boyfriend (where he did not pay for me) was in Middletown Rhode Island-and we went to see some quite bad random garage bands perform...but I guess when it is a battle of the "garage bands" you get what you pay for...subsequently, this was also the date and location of my first kiss...worst experience of my life, and if I based what I thought every kiss was going to be like after that one, I would have NEVER kissed another boy again...ever...ew...I will spare you the details, but I didn't want to do it in the first place, and I did a pretty good job dodging the advances for a good while...but then it happened...ew...and I excused myself from the folding table we were sitting on (quite romantic) and went to the bathroom and got a paper towel and scrubbed my tongue with it...awful...

Now on to the first date where a boyfriend paid.  I believe this was also in Rhode Island but we went downtown Newport (I know it sounds like it is so far from Middletown, but a) if you have been there or b)if you have ever seen a map of Rhode Island, you know that it is only about a 10-20 minute distance between the 2 locations....Anyhow.  I was grounded at the time, so it was a huge deal that my mom & dad let me even go out (I firmly believe that if it had not of been my birthday this story would not have happened).  It was my 13th birthday, and my boyfriend at the time, Chris, wanted to take me out to a movie (I want to say there might have been some type of meal involved but I honestly don't remember) so his mom dropped us off at the theater and we went to see Phenomenon.  I believe I asked him about 100 questions during the movie (like I tend to do) and he got frustrated that I was asking so many questions that we left early and just walked around downtown. 

I watched this movie not too long ago and I actually liked it...I think it was just too far over my head at the time we went to see it...

3. What's your "silly" fear? (We're not talking water and heights.)

Oh here we go...I really don't want you to think that I am crazy...but you probably will.  I have a few "silly" fears.  I am afraid that when I am swimming in the ocean (or water I cannot see through) that I will be attacked by an alligator and a shark...potentially at the same time...Hubs was watching some show on the history or travel channel (riveting stuff) and there was documentary about if 2 animals were to get in a fight which one would win-and they simulate the fight and in this instance it was an Alligator/Crocodile (not sure which one and don't care because to me they are all the same-awful) v/s a shark-(the shark won for those of you wondering because it held the alligator underwater and upside down so it drowned) and then the narrator said that this scenario could actually happen because these 2 water monsters can actually live in the same water!  OMG!  At that moment I knew I could not swim in water that wasn't clear...ew...

I also fear that I will forget that I brought Hans somewhere and leave her (thank you question #1 for bringing that back to my attention.  When I go to the gym on Saturdays that Hubs works, I drop Hans off in the Children's area-and I always think in the back of my mind that I will forget that I brought her and leave...I would feel terrible about it...

I am also a rather ungraceful person-so I have a fear that I am going to fall down the stairs-any stairs at any time-anywhere-no specific stairs...and then hit my teeth on the ground...(thank you Patriot X for traumatizing me for life)  I am sure there are more silly fears...but those are the main ones.
4. Confrontation: do you cause it, deal with is as it comes, or run far far away?

2 of 3  I don't like to be caught up in drama, but sometimes it is necessary to have a confrontation so the situation doesn't get out of hand.  When a situation does arise, that I did not cause, I definitely don't run from stated previously, you never want a situation to get out of hand, so running from your problems really doesn't help anyone.  I don't like when people get in my business without knowing all of the facts -don't be trying to stir my koolade when you don't even know the flavor.
5. Wood floors or carpet?

I need clarification-do you mean do I have wood floors or carpet or do you mean do i prefer wood floors or carpet?  I have carpet-which is completely destroyed, compliments of my 2 year old and her two 4 legged friends...I would prefer wood floors, but the layout of our current house doesn't really make suit wood we will probably just replace the carpet we have and move on with life.  I do enjoy not having to walk on a cold floor due to having the carpet though...I hate cold feet and mine are cold approximately 90% of the time...seriously ask Hubs
This would be me in the morning when I get out of my warm bed

And this would definitely be how I handle the winter months
