That's because it's all about ME.

1. What is your current obsession?

I would have to say that blogging is my current fascination, though I, personally, wouldn't call it an obsession. I mean, an obsession would mean that I think about it all the time, and dream about it and talk about it and constantly thinking about what I'm going to blog about and take pictures JUST for my blog. No, it's not an obsession, it's just a fun hobby that I really enjoy taking the time for...and I don't really take a LOT of time, per se, more like a little bit of extra time in the morning, and some in the mid-morning, and then a little more in the early afternoon, and then some more in the afternoon and again in the late afternoon. But I stop in the early evening until it's the evening and then again in the late evening and before bed. But I mean, it becomes an obsession when you get up in the middle of the night to blog, which I DO NOT do.

2. What’s a good coffee place?

Let's ask Kati: "Coffee? Mom's cafe."
Um? Okay? This coming from the girl who BEGS every time we go out to eat to please let us stop at Starbucks. NO, she doesn't drink coffee.
My answer is Starbucks. Is there any other?

3. Who was the last person that you hugged?

Wow, I'll have to think back really far, to when I was a child. No, kidding, kidding. I hugged Millicent this morning after she finished eating breakfast.

4. Do you nap a lot?

Well ya, I'm taking one right now.

5. Tonight, what’s for dinner?

Fish. Jeff caught some fish the other day, cut them all up and asked if I'd cook them. YES, he ASKED. And of course, I'm going to cook them. I've NEVER, ever, EVER cooked fish, much less fresh fish, but I'm going to cook them. And Jeff will LIKE them. No seriously, he will. He never complains about food that I make. Even when it's gross.

6. What was the last thing that you bought?
Vegetables from Walmart because they have the organics. Some onion bread for sandwiches. Well you asked. No, you didn't?

7. What is your favorite weather?

Is Spring a weather?
8. Tell us something about one blogger who you think will play this week?

Yara, cause she LOVES me, she will play. She has three beautiful children. She has a new baby boy who seriously looks like a grown man in a tiny body, and I mean that in a good way because he is darling! And her daughters have long gorgeous brown hair. And she wears them and cloth diapers them. And oh yea, she MAKES cloth diapers and they are some of my favorite.
And I can tell you who won't, Hannah, cause she's hateful. But she's pretty amazing too. She is the BEST photographer. She loves my children. She's smart...just got a 30 on her ACT. She sings beautifully. She can also play the drums. Who knew?
9. If you were given a free house that was fully furnished, where in the world would you like it to be?

Fully furnished AND my husband has a good job? Hawaii, Florida, Australia, and/or Africa.

10. Name three things that you could not live without.

TV, internet and food. (I didn't want to say Jesus because everyone knows how much I love Him, but not everyone knows how much I love TV.)

11. What would you like in your hands right now?

Who thought up this one? UM, I think I'll go a different route with this, chocolate. MMMM!
12. What’s one of your guilty pleasures?

Wearing a diaper at night when I'm watching TV and eating so I don't have to get up. What?

13. What would you change or eliminate about yourself?

I would change my clothes. Seriously, put on clean ones. But, well, I'm still in my diaper. NO, seriously, if I could change one thing about myself physically...oh never mind, there are too many. But if I could change something else about me, well, I would have more patience.
14. As a child, what type of career did you want?

I always wanted to be a teacher. TADA! I'm a teacher. God is so good! You knew that right?
15. What are you missing right now?

I'm missing my daughter Ashlea more than words will ever express.
16. What are you currently reading?

For you losers, and Yara, she's not a loser, who tried to guess what I was reading a few weeks ago:
Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King....and HELLO...do you even look at the sidebars??? You see that little square thing over there on the left (<<<<<) where it says Books I've Read in 2009? Yeah, you could have looked at that and seen that I had read the first two and that I was probably on the third. (And don't forget to click on those links...seriously. I mean it. I'll do the same for you. I always look for links to click and affiliates to buy through.)

But, I am also reading Just Shy of Harmony. (Should these books be in italics or something?) Again, reading that (<<<<<<) Books thingy might have helped you guess that.

17. What do you fear the most?

I can't even think of a funny for this one. I seriously don't fear anything. I don't have any fears. I'm fearless. I'm like Superman.
18. What’s the best movie that you’ve seen recently?

I have NOT seen ANY movies lately. Since we got Direct TV we watch Dog the Bounty Hunter every night. Got any recommendations? And anyone know how On Demand works?
19. What’s your favorite book from the past year?

So many good ones. I really liked Stolen Innocence. Of course, Lord of the Rings was fabulous and once I started I couldn't put it down. Oops. Those are from this year. Last year was a long time ago.
20. Is there a comfort food from your childhood that you still enjoy?

My Nanny used to make roast beef and chocolate pie and those are my favorite foods. Now do you want to know what my comfort food from my adulthood is? (Which by the way, is fifty bazillion times better than my childhood.) My mom-in-law's potato salad. Always cheers me right up.
