So, I'm sort of not playing by the rules, but I am answering the questions. Here goes...
1. How do you cope with the yucky season where you live?
Um, if yesterday's post is any indication, not very well. I still haven't quite figured out how to embrace a winter that comes with 200+ inches of snow, very little light, and lots of cold. But I want to. In my brain I really really want to.
As a Utahan, I used to love to downhill ski, but I haven't been since before I got married because Joel doesn't enjoy it. We both want to pick up Cross Country skiing, though. It's just a matter of getting the equipment and getting started. I will definitely keep you posted about this.
Meanwhile, the sun came out today, and I'm feeling a little less black.
2. Tell me something you like about me or my blog? (I need a little self esteem boost lately)
Well, Hilary. I love you, you know that. I like your no-nonsense ways, you truly inspire me to stop making excuses about this, that, or the other and go do what needs to be done. You're a great example of that in your life, and your blog reflects that.
3. Name a movie you can quote several lines from.
So my favorite movie is Oscar, starring Sylvester Stallone. And no, it's nothing like Rambo or Rocky or any other typical Sly movie. It's a slapstick comedy set during the Depression, and Stallone plays a Chicago gangster trying to go straight. I've seen it more times than I can count and I just love it. I should go watch it now because it never fails to make me smile. And laugh. A lot.
Oh, did you need some quotes?
Dinner will be soyved at nine-thirty.
Poole was right! You are an ox AND a moron!
It's like disarming Germany.
I got it! Your daughter's not your daughter, and the cash that used to be the jewels is now your underwear!
Oh we make-a you look-a like a banker....take offa your pants.
Though, you should just watch it. It makes much more sense that way...
4. Least thing you like about mothering.
Bed time. I hate it with my entire being. I think by the end of the day I am just done. I should love it. I should happily put my children to bed and sing them lullabies and read them stories, but ugh. It never works out that way. Something to work on.
5. Favorite thing about being a wife
Having my best friend with me most of the time and knowing that he loves me no matter how fat I've gotten or how non-functional I become in January. We have a lot of fun together, and I can always count on Joel to make me laugh. He had me in stitches just tonight when we went through the McDonald's drive-thru for some hot chocolate. If you ever want to laugh, go through a drive-thru with him sometime. Love him.
6. If you could've majored in anything in college, without thought to what you'd do with it afterwards, what would it have been?
It is probably pretty boring of me to say it still would have been music, but it's the truth. I'm not practical like Hilary is, or maybe I would be a nurse too. Although, it's doubtful. Perhaps the question is what would I have majored in if I did think about what I would do with it afterwards? And, I have no idea. It had to be music.
Though I did start a minor in English Lit, but I let that go when music got a little too demanding. Then later I added a minor in linguistics, which I loved. I would have also liked to minor in art or photography. But that would have been way too many minors.
And there you have it.
Now, I am supposed to tag some other bloggers, which I don't usually bother with in these things. But then I thought about the little blogging workshop I taught in Enrichment last week, and I think I know a few bloggers who might like to try (but certainly don't feel obligated....I never do!).
