Getting To Know You

It's that special time of the week again :) I think it's my favorite so far, just because of these questions. I need a hobby, LoL. So you know what to do, read my answers and let me know if you like or dis-like and then head over to MannLand5 and link up with her and do your own :)

1. What year did you graduate high school?
I graduated in 2004. Almost ten years ago which scares me. I don't feel 25. I haven't put an age to my yet if that makes any sense. So when I sit here and think, gosh, 6 years since I graduated, I'm ooold! It's sad...I'm not old. Old is like 75-ish. But I remember seeing people my age, when I was in high school, and thinking, oh em gee, they are o-l-d! LoL. I just found pictures of myself when I graduated high school and I'll have to scan them in, they are amazing. I'm so vain when I look at one of them. It was when I was at my thinnest ever, and I wore make-up, took care of the bush above my eyes, and had a hot color in my hair. I don't look like myself, because at first I was trying to figure out who that was. It is the only picture of myself that I love. I want it framed....

2. What part of your body do you neglect the most?
My eyebrows. Or my legs. Both. I don't shave often, especially when it is the winter. My hair grows thin and blonde which is great. But I also have a "If I don't see them, they don't exist" attitude with my legs. When I was pregnant with Hannah, I popped all sorts of nasty veins out on my legs. You can see all my veins and some even seriously pop out, it's gross. I don't wear shorts or bathing suits or anything that shows my legs. They look albino which doesn't help the situation. So I neglect them badly. And my eyebrows. They have a mind of their own and I don't like how I look with or without them so I don't get them waxed very often. I try to trim them and keep them somewhat tamed down buuuut....My days get busy and I get lazy. Simple as that.

3. Beach house or Lake house?
Lake house. When I picture a beach house, I picture a house super close to the water which scares me in case of a hurricane or tsunami. And I picture thousands of people on the beach along with their trash and loud mouths 24/7. When I picture a lake house, I see a beautiful blue lake surrounded by trees everywhere and quiet. Like in Montana. A lake where no one knows it exists so I don't have to deal with anyone nor do I have to deal with a natural disaster. And I see wildlife everywhere. Ugh...I miss Montana sometimes....


4. Mac or PC?
I don't even get that commercial or question. What is the difference?? I guess PC as that is what I use? LoL. I'm so not a tech geek...

5. Did you wear braces?
Ugh for 7 very long and very painful years I did. I put them on in the 7th grade and those bad boys didn't come off until I was a junior in high school. After I had my jaw broken, pulled forward, reset with screws and then wired shut for 8 loooong weeks. I can talk without moving my mouth, haha. Beat that ventriloquist boy! I did enjoy the color choices though and was one of those kids who color coordinated them with the holidays or school games, LoL. PS white and yellow are gross after about a week.

6. If you could be one person for a or deceased...who would you be?
I would probably choose to be...I don't know actually. A day doesn't seem long enough to make an actual impact. I was thinking like President Truman, to end the WW2 faster. But that would take more than a day to accomplish. I'd love to give in to my evil self and pick someone I have major issues with and screw their lives over BIG time but that isn't right in any sense and dropping to an idiots level just makes you the bigger idiot so scratch that one....Probably Abel. I would love to see what goes through his mind, how men think and what a day in his life would entail just so I can sympathize better and understand a little better too.

7. How many times have you moved in your life?
Honestly, too many times to count. I know I have lived in 5 states and multiple cities in each state. That's about as far as I can get I think. From what I know I can say at least, 19 times. In 25 years. A lot.
*Albuquerque, NM*North Palm Springs, CA*Palm Desert, CA*Desert Hot Springs (3 houses)*Yucca Valley, CA*Joshua Tree, CA*Twenty-Nine Palms, CA*Cathedral City, CA*La Quinta, CA*Las Vegas, NV*Troy, MT (2 houses)*Libby, MT (3 houses)* Harvey, ND (2 houses)*

8. Would you rather cook or clean?
It's a toss up. I love cooking. I hate planning the meals. If someone has the meals for me in the morning, we're golden and I look forward to it. I really do enjoy cleaning too, I just need motivation some days. Soooo....Probably cleaning.

It's just not right that you enjoy cleaning. Wish some of that could rub off on me.

Geez, 7 years with braces? I think I had mine on for only 2. Of course, because I didn't keep wearing my retainer, I have a gap in my front teeth which I hate.

Although I've always dreamed of a beach house, I think I'd prefer a lake house too. Way more critters to see!
