1. What is a hobby you would love to learn and why?
Hmmmmmmmmmm...I think I would choose gardening...for starters. The why is cuz...I can't. These ole thumbs are black. And because flowers are pretty! So if you have any pointers or favs or anything else to share...please comment below! Our backyard is 99% shadowed by mid-afternoon...so what grows well in the shade? (Besides weeds...I'm GREAT at those)
2. What do you wish you could have delivered to your house but does not deliver?
Olive Garden! But it's probably just as well they don't...as I put the finishing touches on my weightloss blog earlier today :/
3. What's your favorite snow day activity? Inside and out?
I love fall. Sweater weather, crisp breezes, beautiful foliage. I do not love winter. BUT I suppose if I have to choose, snowtubing? We did that with the kids before and it was quite fun. And cold. But fun. Inside is easy...snuggles, blankets, movies, kiddos, and couch. 'Nuff said.
4. Would you meet a stranger from an Internet dating site?
Do people still do that? Didn't I see on Dr. Phil that there's a bunch of scammers on that? Anywho, I hope I never have to find out, but honestly, I think I'd choose NO.
5. If you had to spend 35 hours in a car with 4 other people, who would you choose?
Been there, done that. My Many Men and I drove to Ohio to visit my sis a couple summers ago. I'm thinking of doing the same this year, only going further...if I don't lose my nerve and the wee bit of sanity I have remaining... So, since you've requested 4, I'll answer 4 of my 5 boys. I'm not saying that I have favorites
cuz you're not supposed to but I will say that of the 5 there's one who is my LEAST favorite on car trips. He'd like a 4 foot radius around him in the car. Hell, wouldn't we all.

I don't usually watch commercials. In fact, I'm a commercial snob. But one night, we caught the Directv Genie commercial. Record 5 shows at once? Hells to the yeah!!!
I dialed them right up, explained I'm interested in the Genie, and the operator asked, "You mean the box, not the girl, right?" HA! I told her I'm all set with the girl, but thanks for asking. My husband, however, wondered how much extra per month that would be...More than you know, honey, more than you know.
Sadly, for the
low price of $299, we could record 5 shows. Ummmm, no thanks. I'll juggle my 2 shows, recordings and glares from my family as I check that everything is set to record "just for a quick second," as they watch ANOTHER episode of Pawn Stars in a teeny box in the upper lefthand corner of the screen. Heh.
So instead of the Genie or the girl, we opted for the promo package of HBO/STARZ/SHO, etc. I was all caught up on season 2 of Homeland that night (Go Carrie!). Woot. And we're usually pretty good about grabbing movies from Redbox when they come out ($1.26, love it!), but apparently we skipped a few, cuz we have watched and enjoyed The Descendents, The Lucky One, and Battleship.
Not to mention the 1991 version of Robin Hood--with super young Kevin Costner and Christian Slater. (Yum.) And since I've already had sexual relations with Kevin, it was only right to share this movie with my many men. I couldn't help but laugh at the hair and horrible punch lines... how lucky for my family that I turned as many scenes into a musical as possible?! "Search your heart, search your soulllllllllllllllllllll!" I crooned.
They loved it. My best moment was when Kev (we're tight) went to swing on the rope but *gasp* it was on fire, so I let him know, to the tune of Alicia Keys new song: "That rope is on fiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiire!"
As I searched for the commercial above to embed it on this post, the boys heard the guy yell after the turtle bit his finger and they came running: "We want to watch the sheep video again, too, Mom!" So please excuse me while I indulge them for the 47th-ish time...
"Goats yelling like humans"
