Life is Good. So Damn Good!

I just recently started up my blog again (yeah me) after a year plus long hiatus. So I was thrilled when I read my friend Alicia's blog and saw that she bestowed a lovely blogging award my way (insert overly dramatic stage bow here).

I must now complete three tasks:

1. Thank you so much Alicia! WOOT, WOOT!
2. Answer some questions about moi (and boy do I love to talk about myself).
3. Pass it on (I'll do what I can).

Away we go:

Q1. If you blog anonymously, are you happy doing this? If you aren't anonymous, do you wish you started out anonymously so that you could be anonymous now?
There are times that I wish I was anonymous. You know the times when I would just love to go on a long rant about certain dumb ass people in my life, but I'm happy to be blogging out in the open.

Q2. Describe an incident that shows your inner stubborn side.
Pretty much my day-to-day life is an example of how stubborn I am. I can't come up with one specific example and I refuse to.

Q3. What do you really see when you look at yourself in the mirror?
Giant dark circles that no amount of makeup can conceal.

Q4. What is your favorite summer cold drink?
Do you even have to ask? White wine of course! Although recently I have expanded my palate and have discovered I actually enjoy beer. So I think I'll be dabbling in beer a little more often.

Q5. When you take time for yourself, what do you do?
Time for myself, what the hell is that?

Q6. Is there something you still want to accomplish in your life?
I would like to survive this life with my sanity still intact. If that happens then I think that will be a damn good accomplishment.

Q7. When you attended school, were you the class clown, the class overachiever, the shy person, or always ditching
Oh, I was the shy nerd for sure.

Q8. If you close your eyes and want to visualize a very poignant moment in your life, what would you see?
I would have to say when my mother-in-law passed away. I still miss her so much and think about her often. I get really pissed off when I think of all the things she's missed out on. Watching Dylan and Justin and all her other future grandchildren grow up. Michael & Julie's wedding (and now they are going to be parents). Amanda working her butt off and putting herself through college and growing into such a beautiful woman. Chris moving across country and not being afraid to try life on his own. For a 21 year old "kid" he's also the most loving uncle (I totally mean that in a non-creppy way Chris). Bryan being an amazing husband and the best father I could of ever asked for. I know she would be so proud to see what amazing people her kids turned out to be.

Q9. Is it easy for you to share your true self in your blog, or are you more comfortable writing posts about other people or events?

I enjoy sharing about myself, it's very therapeutic.

Q10. If you had the choice to sit down and read a book or talk on the phone, which would you do and why?

Reading hands down. I hate talking on the phone. If it wasn't for text messaging I probably would never talk to anybody.

Passing the torch:

Cathy at Two Monkeys

Everybody else I stalk was already tagged. Guess that's what happens when you're late to the party.

You're so cute! Your writing is very funny and witty! I'm very glad you started writing again! (did I use enough !!!'s?)

I feel the say way about my grandparents' passing. They pretty much raised me, and now they've missed so many wonderful things. They never got to meet my child, and that makes me sad.

I for one am super ridiculously jazzed (yes jazzed) that you are blogging. I plan to stalk your blog creepily.

ps.... Q8 made me cry like a baby. I feel the same way about my dad. It's hard to explain the empty feeling when you think of them missing all the wonder that they helped to create.
