You know the e-mails you get forwarded to you...the ones with a bunch of random questions you hit reply and answer for those who sent it? For some reason I always have an urge to fill those out. Maybe it is the random questions that are easy and quick to answer...gives me a feeling of accomplishment or something.
So I got one the other day from my friend Laraine (hi Laraine!) and instead of replying via e-mail, I thought I'd share all these random tidbits with you...another window into who is Bloggy Mama!
What color socks are your socks right now? barefoot (I am as much as possible in the summertime!)
What are you listening to right now? The neighbors riding their ATV's and their children screaming outside...all while I'm hoping my children are sleeping in their beds. I'm thinking probably not...
What was the last thing that you ate? A piece of my daughter's birthday cake
Can you drive a stick shift? yep, had to learn when my 1st car in high school was a manual
Last person you spoke to on the phone? My sistah Michelle!
Do you like the person who sent this to you? You Betcha!
How old are you today? According to the Birthday Calculator I found online, I am currently 12,961 days old. Now figure that one out!
What is your favorite sport to watch on TV? um...not really any - except the Olympics
What is your favorite drink ? Alcoholic? Anything fruity and sweet with no overly alcoholly taste (guessing 'alcoholly' isn't really a word...). Basically 'foo foo' drinks. Or Riesling wine. Non-alcoholic would be something simple like iced tea, lemonade or...good ole H20!
Have you ever dyed your hair? Yes, but not for a long time. And the gray (and white!) hairs are creeping in. My daughter found a white hair from my head the other day and said "Mom! Look at this! You are getting OLD! You are gonna DIE!!!" So dramatic.
Favorite food? Ice Cream...no question.
Favorite day of the year? Any day where my family is healthy, happy and connected. Sounds cheesy...but it's true.

What was your favorite toy as a child? My Little Ponies and my Cabbage Patch Dolls
What is your favorite season? SpringSummerFall (does that count as one season if I leave out the spaces?)
Cherries or Blueberries? depends, but if just to eat by the handful, for sho cherries. Love me some blueberry pancakes though!

Who is most likely not to respond? Doesn’t Count #3
When was the last time you cried? Got teary eyed? This morning in church. Actual sob? don't remember.
