More than you wanted to know

I have been under the weather, my friends. With the epizootus. Which in our house translates to the allergy/sinus/upper respiratory triathlon that runs through my body several times a year. This time, I wasn't even over the last episode before this one hit me like a ton of bricks.

Seriously, I slept all day long yesterday. I took two kids to school, went to Target for some desperately needed groceries, slept, picked one kid up, slept, picked another kid up, slept, organized a closet, watched TV, tried to sleep.

Right now I want to crawl back in bed, but I'm trying to wait until after that first kid pick-up at 11:00. So this is an ideal time for me to finally answer the interview questions that I got from Carissa at SAHMmy Says.

Leave me a comment saying “Interview me.” I will respond by emailing you five questions. I get to pick the questions. If you don’t have a valid email address on your blog, please provide one. You will update your blog with a post containing your answers to the questions. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

1. I'm drawn to the picture of Big Daddy and you on the front page of your blog. There's a story there. Do tell.

There's a story, but it's not interesting. We were at a marriage enrichment seminar/retreat for adoptive parents. We've been blessed to be able to attend two of these events. One was in Austin at the Embassy Suites (love Embassy Suites!) and one was in Dallas at Hotel Indigo (eh...).

2. You just started at Rydell High. Who's your new best friend? Sandy, Frenchy, Rizzo, or one of the guys?

I'd be scared of Rizzo, friends with Frenchy (cause she's friends with everyone!), but want to be best friends with Marty. She's always been my favorite. Plus, I'd be friends with the guys, because for some reason, in High School guys always saw me as great "buddy" material. Thanks, guys.

3. Off with her head! Which teen idol does the Queen wish to eternally exile?

Oh goodness, I just hate that the media has gotten totally out of hand with these girls. I'm not really in touch with who the teens really like, as opposed to who gets all the press. I'd have to say, though, that Lindsay Lohan drives me crazy. And the Olsen Twins are probably actually aliens. Britney, I can't even go there. That's a train wreck of monumental proportions.

4. You're a serious bargain shopper. Anything you'll pay full price for--without flinching?

Good shoes. Red Wing Boots for Big Daddy; they last and last and last, and they professionally fit them in the store. I'd like to buy some Birkenstocks for me, but haven't been able to part with $100+ yet. But when I do, I won't flinch, because I know they're worth it.

Diet Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper.

Seriously, though, most anything I want, I try to wait until I find a discount or lower price on it.

5. What do you pray for when thinking about the future and your girls?

I want my girls to grow up feeling safe and secure. They had a rough start, and I hope we'll be able to overcome the insecurities and uncertainty that came with that. I pray that my girls won't be so desperate for love that they'll let men mistreat them. I pray that my girls will have ambition and direction when they reach the age where it's needed. And more than anything, I pray that my girls will love God with all their hearts, and seek his will for their lives.

Thanks, Carrissa! That was fun!
