Getting to Know You

I have been following Mannland 5 for a while now and decided that today, I will join in her "Getting to Know You" weekly piece.

Here are the questions and my answers:

1 - Why did you start blogging?

I started blogging in 2003 I think. I used Caring Bridge as an outlet for my emotions during my Dad's battle (and subsequent loss) with leukemia. I've used Blogger, Wordpress, a couple of almost unknown servers and then came back to blogger. I find that my blog is so therapeutic, not just for me, but for so many others who have contacted me because of something I posted. My blog is my diary...for the world to see.

2 - Who's the one blog friend that you would want to meet most in "real life"?

I am so blessed that I have met many of my online friends in real life. Kate, Karen and Wendy to name a few. There are two bloggers that I would LOVE to meet in person, and one of them is a real possibility since she lives fairly close to me...Kia is witty, funny and so cute. She lives just a stone's throw away, so I *WILL* meet her one day. Deanna and Tony live nowhere near me, so the chances of meeting them are remote, but I would love, love LOVE to meet them. They are wonderful parents with the cutest little dolly-girl you ever did see!

3 - Why are you always concerned with losing that "extra 10 pounds" when chances are your husband/boyfriend/friends tell you that you look just fine the way you are?

I'm not. LOL.

4 - What's the one thing you wish guys could understand about you?

That Moms need breaks too. That sometimes, it would be nice if you offered to do some of the chores AND watch the kids at the same time instead of leaving everything to me. Ooops...was that out loud? Let's just say we had a bit of a rough weekend.

5 - Tattoos. How many do you have and how many are visible when you wear your "everyday" clothes?

I have two tattoos. One on my shoulder, in memory of my Dad. It's the Union Jack flag with the leukemia ribbon through it and my Dad's DOB and DOD in the ribbon. I also have a large tattoo on the bottom of my back, which started small...a butterfly with some ivy and then I added to it some large forget-me-nots and RIP Joanne in memory of my sister. It's quite big, but no one can see it unless I have a bikini on...which doesn't happen often! LOL...I love both of my tattoos and would like more.

6 - What was the best year of your life and why?

High school graduation, 1987. I was footloose and fancy free...no responsibilities, lots of friends, no stress...just loved life for that year.

7 - Name three things you would do if you were a man for one day.

Lay on the couch and ignore my wife's calls for assistance, pee standing up, drink beer with my hand in my waistband...oh wait, I do that already! LOL - Kidding.

8 - What's your alcoholic drink of choice that usually raises a few eyebrows?

White wine. It's all I really drink, except for an occasional beer or fruity drink once in a while. I don't think it raises eyebrows though...so I'm a bore! ;o)
