Thursday Thunks

1. Did you play any April Fools jokes on anyone or have a joke played on you? Nope!

2. If you could be on any non-reality TV show as a guest star or star, which one would it be and why? I would love to be on Lost. Hanging with the crowd that I have watched for the past 5 years would be a trip. Maybe I wouldn't be so damn lost.

3. Do you crack your knuckles? Not as often as I used to.

4. If you remember your first day of kindergarten, were you scared or excited? If you have kids or grandkids, were they scared or excited? My kids aren't in Kindergarten yet. I don't remember by own first day. I have pictures of my first day, waiting at the bus stop with my white Barbie lunchbox, dressed in 70's plaid. I look scared but don't remember. I remember moments of Kindergarten; playing in a sandbox in the middle of the class room and the first parent/teacher meeting. I was so excited to show my work to my parents.

5. If you are in the shower, hear the fire alarm going off and smell smoke/see flames, will you just run out of the house with a towel on or grab some clothes & dress as you run out? I would grab a towel and run Forest run!

6. Last week the Thursday Thunkers asked about your Daddy (twice), so this week tell us a little about your Mom. My mom, Diane was 34 when she learned that she had cancer. Cancer that was progressive and would take her away from her children. Cancer that would kill her in a few months. I can't even imagine what she was thinking during that time. I have a few posts about my mom here, here and here.

7. Which search engine do you use most often? Google

8. Did you participate in Earth Hour? Nope!

9. What was the last new-to-you movie you watched? Was it in the theater or on DVD? Was it good? Gran Torino with Clint Eastwood. It was awesome. My girl Clarissa loaned it to me and I watched in my living room with my husband.

10. If you do something embarrassing, do you laugh it off, or sit & worry about it? It totally depends on how embarrassing and who it was in front of. The more embarrassing, the more I laugh it off.

11. Where is your favorite spot in your home to sit & relax? My daughter's room! I love being in there. The walls sooth me.


  1. Your Mom was so young. Very sad.

    Thanks for playing. :)

  2. I saw Gran Turino last weekend as well and it was SO good! Clint Eastwood is awesome.

    I'm so sorry about your mom. I can't even imagine.

  3. Sorry about your mom, I can't even imagine what she went through especially as a mom myself.

  4. Kimber, I don't I will always be older and this is really odd.

    Tanya, It was an awesome movie. Thanks for the thoughts.

    Ria, Me too! I think about it all the time. Leaving 3 girls and wondering if they will be ok must have caused quite a bit of guilt and fear.


I love comments. Please feel free to leave a comment. I would love to talk to you further
