In American football, a fumble occurs when the player carrying the ball drops it, often resulting in a great advantage for the other team. What have you recently fumbled in your own life? Ahhh...the old fumble question. No actually I never heard it put quite this way but I fumble all the time. Especially when I deal with my son or my husband. With my son I get into verbal disputes with him all the time. Instead of just cutting the argument short and following through with discipline I debate him.

In American football, you have thrown an interception when someone from the other team catches the ball you meant for your teammate. Who’s often an interceptor of something you intend for someone else? These days my kids are the interceptor. My husband and I have always spoken to each other through others. Instead of confronting each other with things like, "who left these dishes in the sink?" We ask someone else. First it was our pets and now it is our kids.

One of the severest penalties in American football is for unsportsmanlike conduct, when a player doesn’t play according to the spirit of fair play. In what situations are you most likely to be a perpetrator of unsportsmanlike conduct? It takes a lot to get me ruffled, however that being husband probably causes my attitude like no one else. Instead of telling him something that bothers me such as coffee stains on the counter after I have already cleaned it or a dish in the sink or food in the drain after I scrubbed it makes me crazy. Do I tell him? No, I slam doors and throw silverware in the drawer.

In American football, the concept of running low-risk plays that consistently gain a few yards at a time is called “moving the chains,” while the concept of going after huge gains with higher-risk plays is called the “vertical game.” In your personal life, are you more of a moving-the-chains player or a vertical-game player? I am totally a moving the chains kinda girl. I don't believe in creating unnecessary waves and will take a back seat to whatever is going on unless it comes to my kids.

Sometimes in American football, the quarterback will, at the last moment, change his or her mind about the intended play, either to prevent what is likely to be a failure or to take advantage of a vulnerability in the other team. The method used in this play-change is often “calling an audible.” In what way have you recently called an audible in your life? Oh I call "audible" every single day. As I said, I don't make waves. I feel out the situation before approaching and usually just take a back seat to my husbands mood of the day.


  1. That bubble bath sounds wonderful! Sleep past 7AM - what's that LOL?
