Hey y'all! Link up here if you're playing along today, too!
1. What is the meaning of your blog’s name?
2. Why did you start your blogging?
Given that we had family all around the country and since we'd moved around the world and back, I figured blogging would be one good way to keep all that far-flung family and of course our friends in touch. For the most part, my audience consisted of my mama-in-law and... not much else. And now that my MIL has passed away recently, well, I have a few followers but... not much else! haha!
3. What’s your usual bedtime?
If it's before midnight, I'm still up. Unless we're out of any form of caffeine. And then I may not wake up at all.
4. Are you lazy?
5. Do you miss anyone right now?
I'm missing my son.
6. How would you describe your fashion sense?
So pretty much, if I'm comfortable, I wear it. I should get a full-length mirror.
7. What are your nicknames?
Ummm... Smellyann. Unless you count Mom. But that's pretty ubiquitous.
8. Are you a patient person?
I'm lazy and impatient, generally. It's a weird, ungodly combination. My husband, on the other hand, has the patience and work ethic of a saint. I love the guy, and not just for those reasons.
9. Are you tight-fisted or frivolous?
I'm a combination of both. Are we buying more hex wrenches or more yarn?
10. What magazines do you read?
I literally get about 60 free subscriptions of all different kinds. The only kind I don't get is porn, basically.
11. Are you stubborn?
Potentially. What is this, the Paint a Crappy Portrait of Melanie Meme? ;P
12. When is your birthday?
No, I am not kidding.
13. What book are you currently reading?
I've been "reading" this book for several weeks. I haven't really gotten past the Introduction. I'm just feeling hopeful that maybe I'll find it this week, let alone continue reading past the Intro. I mean, we didn't even bring more than a carload with us to Idaho, and yet it's missing. How does this happen?!
14. What phone do you have?
I have a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, and I hated it until I figured out how to turn the Edge function off. That was a pain in my anus. Oh, and I'm on the second one. Can you say, "fragile"?? Bad. Idea.
15. Do you have any pets?
We aren't quite this pet-full, but we do have our menagerie.
16. Do you have siblings?
Stacey, on this page, is my older sister - by 17 months. I also have an older half-sister, Pamela, whom I've never met. I used to have two older step-sisters, too. Which makes me the annoying baby of the family, yes. Hubs is also the baby of his family.
17. Any children or grandchildren?
These are my kiddos about 8 or 10 years ago... missing is Jack's twin brother, our wee angel babe.
18. What do you order at Starbucks?
We used to have a bit of a Starbucks habit, but that only lasted until they changed the way their rewards program is set up. Now I go maybe once or twice a year, but when I do, I order a grande or venti Java Chip Frappuccino for me, and a Mocha Frap for the hubs. Or even just a hot coffee for him. He doesn't like it all doctored up and fancy. Drinks it black many days, even. The weird, it's strong with that one.
19. What did you do for your last birthday?
Having a surprise birthday party has been on my Bucket List before I knew what a Bucket List was. I turned 40 last September. We didn't do anything memorable. Boo, hiss.
20. What’s your occupation?
I'm a stay-at-homeschooling mum of two teens and a tween. Before I became too ill to do so, I also mystery shopped for more than 10 years, but I'm thinking of picking it back up again. I do the odd job here and there, too, but mostly Mum is my gig.
21. Do you live in the country or the city?
We just moved from the 'burbs of Miami to the city of Boise, Idaho. It's been 16 days of joy, every last one of them. Even today, when we got home from church and Jack let the dogs out of their kennels, and Tapi immediately farted splattery poop all over him. Well, maybe not so joyous for Jack... ;)
Thanks for stopping by!
