I have just ONE five Questions for You

It's Friday AGAIN!  Wowee this week went fast.  The upcoming weekend is sure to blow (sorry, lack of a better expression).  This is my first full weekend of work in three weeks.  Jodi is gone forever :( and I'm working all weekend with The Spaz.  My only comfort is that I am the motherlovin' ONE on Sunday (that means Spaz doesn't get to boss me around) and the hope of continuing a new Saturday tradition with Jaime.  Oh and a few super cool co-workers (to balance the super NOT cool ones).

Friday is my absolute favorite day.  It still has that feeling of Friday even though I no longer work a typical week.  It's the one and only kid-free night with my love, and it's out to eat night.  It's also usually a visit to Sheila's. Annnnnnnd it's also FIVE QUESTIONS!  Yay!

1. What is the first nightmare you remember?
Ohhh I still remember it SO vividly.  Before I had the dream, my little brother had fallen at the kitchen table and banged his noggin.  Out cold.  He was literally knocked out, and was only maybe two.  Poor baby bubby.  Anyway, he was fine, but after the incident, my mom told me if anything like that ever happened that I was to run to Lance and Linda's (our next door neighbors) and tell them and get help. 

When I went to bed that night, I dreamed that a witch came to our house.  It was the "typical" kid witch, with a pointy black hat and green skin.  She got my mom and tied her to the woodpile we had under the carport.  I kept telling her to let her go, but she refused.  The witch then hinged an axe to the woodpile and CHOPPED  my  mama almost in half.  Imagine a tree that has had a chunk sawed out so it will fall.  My mama came out of the carport holding her stomach, teetering on the little skin she still had.  I went running for Lance and Linda's, but halfway there I saw my mom fall down and die.

I was scared to go to sleep for weeks.  I know, morbid.  Since then I have always had nightmares night terrors when there was (good or bad) stress or change in my life.  My brother's incident probably sparked fear and stress in my little mind and POOF.  Weird scary dream.

2. Even if you're not a sports fan, what's your favorite sport to play/watch?
But, I'm not a sports fan.  I don't enjoy sports much at all.  I will tolerate the occasional football game or basketball game, but I'd rather not watch at all usually.

I did enjoy high school basketball, both when I attended and when I taught.  It's more interesting when the players are people I know, I guess.

3. If you could pull off one piece of trendy fashion, what would you want it to be (jeggings, hats, thigh high boots, etc.)?
Skinny jeans.  Simply because that would mean my legs are skinny if I was truly "pulling it off."  But I'm not much of a trendy girl.

4. Did you make good grades in school?
Mostly.  Grades came really easily to me (except for math!).  I could be pretty lazy with studying and make an A.  I am a good test-taker and I usually got my work done in class, so I didn't work very hard.  I pulled a 3.9 through high school, but probably could've done a 4.3 if I had applied myself.  But I enjoyed school, so that's what matters, right?

5. What magazines do you subscribe to?
I don't subscribe to any.  I used to get Parents and Cosmo (one my mom never approved of he he).  At one time I also got O on a regular basis.  
As a kid I got Teen and Seventeen (another one Mommy didn't care for).


  1. You always make me laugh, Dida! I never knew you had those scary dreams! Scared me just readin' about it!

  2. Oh thanks =) I have the strangest and scariest dreams! I used to sleep walk a lot also, and I am afraid Chloe is similar. Already has nightmares and odd deep sleep habits!
