1. Where did you meet your spouse and did you instantly know it was love?
Our story is so sad…we met at the restaurant/bar/casino he use to work at. I was recovering from mono and I was going crazy to get out of the house…so a friend invited me down to this little place she always went after work. It was a Friday night and I wanted to do something (anything!!) so I drove 30mins to join her. Since it was her hang out, she introduced me to everyone. Of all the guys I met that night, hubby was the one that paid me the least bit of attention lol Can honestly say it wasn’t instant love. I knew I liked him, he was the first guy that caught my attention since my friend passed away (my students had tried the entire summer to set me up and it never worked). I’m surprised hubby and I are together, he forgot my name on our first “real” date, stood me up one or twice and acted like he didn’t care. Finally, I had enough. It was raining, I was still recovering and he was sick but I went to his house and told him that he could give me a minute or two of his time since he couldn’t even bother calling to tell me he wasn’t going to meet me. Right there in the rain I gave him a piece of my mind…and he said that’s when he knew he wanted to be with me.
2. What is your favorite room in your house?
The Living Room…mainly because that’s where we spend all our time together as a family.
3. Can you wiggle your ears?
let me try…..nope…lol I can’t
4. What is your evening ritual?
Hubby gets home around 4p and takes over entertaining Abby. I try to get some work done on the computer while little sweet pea grows bored with daddy and comes to “help”. At 6 she eats dinner and I watch the news, 7 is her bedtime…sometime after that hubby and I eat dinner. Once he goes to bed, I try again to work on the computer. I spend time on twitter and facebook playing in giveaways and comment games, I chat with friends and see how they are doing, and I work on my blog and try to keep up with my posts and reviews. Around 10 or 11 I call it quits, curl up with my book and glass of water and wind down. Usually manage to get in the bed around 1 or 2.
5. How many hours of sleep do you need to function?
I do really well with 4. I like to get more than that but typically during the week I get around 4 and do really well during the day. To be honest, I do better on 4 hours than on 6 or 7. Laying in bed too long makes my back hurt and if I try to catch “just a few more mins” in the mornings I’m usually more tired than when I first woke up.
