Gotta get the house clean. Company's coming !!!

1. Have you ever testified in court? For what?

No I almost had to do it but I had to work so I couldn't. I do watch all the court cases on T.V. though and always giving my opinion while watching them. Love the Case File shows too.

2. Do you still have your wedding dress?

Yes I do. Have had it for years and don't know why because no one is going to ever wear it. Have tried thinking of something I can make out of it but haven't had the heart to cut it up. Or thought I would give it away to someone who can't afford one. I only paid 100 dollars for it so thought maybe I could make some pillows for my bed out of it.

3. Is there a special place you like to go when you're happy, sad, stressed, etc.?

Yes to all three... I love to go stroll thru antique stores when all of those emotions are going on. I love to window shop when I am sad or stressed. It brings my blood pressure way down when I am just taking my time and browsing. Then when I am HAPPY I love to go and browse so I can actually buy something.

4. If you have kids, do they sleep with you? If you don't have kids...will you let your kids sleep with you when/if you have them?

I let my 8 yr. old Granddaughter sleep with me when ever she wants to. I know it isn't going to always be that way so I go for it. lol

5. Do you watch late night TV?

I record it and then watch it when I have time with skipping all the commercials.

Thank God it's FRIDAY

1. Do you know what your REAL hair color is?
Yeppers, that would be black and I take pride in keeping it that way. LOL
Washing the grey out when I find the time.

2. Do you plan ahead for summer, or fly by the seat of your pants?
Plan some and then go with the flow. My BFF and I go to Leavenworth a little town in the mountains for the weekend every year in our own same ol' room we love. My sister is moving back home after many many many years living far away from all of us and I am so excited because we have so much catching up to do and many things planned. Like getting our scrapbooks started finally and making craft things together.

3. What is your favorite meal to cook?
Breaded pork chops with mashed potatoes and gravy and peas.

4. Do you get offended by not receiving thank yous?
Not really. I think so many people appreciate what you've done or bought them but don't always make the time to say Thank you and then when they have the time it probably seems to late to give one so they don't. I guess I realize how time flies and that people get busy in their lives. So My answers no I don't.

5. How did you meet your best friend?
I met her at a back care program that we both had to go to after our surgeries. We had to do classes on how to walk and bend and exercise together everyday. Some times we would get to go swimming down the road. It was the most painful thing each one of us has ever went through but we say to this day we would of never met if we never got sent there. So that makes us HAPPPYYYY...
