Kath's Friday Question Fun

1. If you had $1,000 to donate to a charity, which would you choose?

I have two sites I have been watching on T.V. that I always tell myself that If I had money I would give to and its St. Jude's Children's research Hospital and the other one is the one on T.V. that they have children with their lips messed up and they operate and fix them like new. I think it's called Project Smile. It pulls at my heart every time I see it on T.V.

2. Snow days: Do you welcome them happily or are they a pain in your butt?

If I have lots to do in the house, I think they are a pain. If I have things caught up then it can be fun. LOL

3. What talent did you wish you had and why?

I always wanted to be able to sing well. I have always envied the people in church standing on stage singing so beautifully and I would love to do that. But, when I was a teenager I wanted to play the drums. I wanted to be a girl drummer. I never ever got them for Christmas when I asked and the faze went away in 3 years.

4. Are you a news, politics or celebrity gossip junkie?

Celebrity junkie. But, not the enquirer paper type junky. I do like the news as well.

5. What is your favorite "cocktail"? (Are you a beer person, a kiddie cocktail junkie, or perhaps your more the "Cosmo" kind?! Anything flies...doesn't hafta be alcoholic!)

I rarely drink at all but, when I do its always the same White Russian which is vodka and Kahlua with half and half and lots of ice. I used to love Pina Colada's when I was younger. When I am stressed out I do always say the remark " I need a drink ? even though I don't act on it. I like the meaning behind it. LOL

1. Where did you meet your spouse and did you instantly know it was love?

We met in Portland Oregon. We knew we had lots of the same values on life and that's what attracted us to each other I think. We were friends for awhile before getting together . We have been together for 17 years this year. Whoo Hoo
2. What is your favorite room in your house?

Oh that's a hard one. I love my bedroom and my Granddaughters bedroom. I have made my Granddaughter room Shabby and Chic looking, with a whole lotta vintage things in it. So I love coming in here and this is where my computer is so I am in here a lot. But, I am working on my room now and think I am going to love looking at the things in there as well. lol
3. Can you wiggle your ears?
No I can not wiggle my ears or my nose, or lift my eyebrows. Those are 3 things I have always wanted to do when I see someone do them. It's Amazing I think that they can do it..
4. What is your evening ritual?

After dinner and picking up the kitchen, I help my Granddaughter with her reading , spelling words, and math. Then we usually look for something on T.V. that's funny or fun to watch and we laugh a lot. I then figure out what she is wearing the next day to school and then go hunting the house for her shoes so they are ready with her outfit so we aren't looking the next day. Our dog Scooter takes off with them every evening and hides them so its a nightly ritual to find them.
5. How many hours of sleep do you need to function?

The older I get the less hours I need and for the last few years I sleep around 4 hours a night. But, for me to really function well and feel rested I like to have 5 hours. That's my favorite amount of time and I do get it once in awhile.
