Yeah yeah. I'm pretty much a day late & a dollar short. Well, at least I think so. My grandma used to say that one all the time. Now, I actually get to use it. Here's my January 27th Sunday Social thingymabobber. ;)
What is your ideal way to relax?
Ideally, my mom would take the kids to the park or whatnot while my husband and I cuddle up with some movie snacks and watch some television. Probably like Star Trek or something. Yeah, I know. Hush.
Where is your favorite place to be?
Hands down: my parent's house. I love their house. As a kid, it was easily the one and only place I ever felt like truly at home, safe and sound. As an adult, it's like a boost of energy in the form of an amazing house. My kids love it, and the big ol' lake in front. It's peaceful and amazing, and beautiful. This is a photo of them, with two of the boys in their front yard:
Who do you consider your biggest role model?
Well, it's always been a mix of role models. Like, I have always had people looking out for me, showing me right from wrong. In childhood, it was mainly my mom, even if we didn't really see eye to eye on things. She never let go. As an adult (and a mom) I still go to her for a lot of things. She's been a major consistent in my life. I'd say my sister, Misty has played a huge part in who I am too. She has taught me (by example, mainly) that it's okay to be angry, or upset, or hurt - but it really hurts no one but yourself to fly off the handle and become bitter. She's also shown me a lot in the ways of forgiveness, step-parenting, and "putting my work face on." So, my mom and my sister.
What does your life look like in 3 years?
Good question. I could line out all these plans for you all, but I'd be pissed if I came back in three years and I hadn't accomplished any of them. I'd probably be good with some general things like "down more than a few pounds," but in all actuality, nothing is set in stone. Not even location. =/ I kinda don't like that. At all.
If you could go back and change one decision what would it be?
I can't. If I change one thing in the past, my entire future would change. It wouldn't work. No matter what. All my mistakes and circumstances brought me to this day. Cheesy, but whatever.
What is your biggest accomplishment in life thus far?
Being a mom. I always wanted kids, and it's always been kind of a part of me. But having my kids with me, and doing all the mom stuff? It's my life.
