New Ride

Well, Gene and I have been arguing about this for a month, and I finally lost the fight!
It's shiny...
It's loud...
It goes really fast...

And, I hate it!

Please say a little prayer that my husband stays safe on this thing!

Julia's Questions:
  1. Your house is on fire. All your family and pets are safe. What do you save? My camera and iPhone....not sure how I could live without them!
  2. What is your first memory? I'm not sure what my first memory would be, but I have a lot of memories with my granddad who passed away when I was 7.
  3. What can you never say no to? Wine
  4. What's the one thing you would change about yourself? I hold grudges...over silly things.
  5. What's the one thing about yourself you wish more people possessed? The ability to pretend like I like someone, even when I don't. I hate confrontation!
  6. Money aside, what's your dream job? Working in a hospital nursery!
  7. What is your favorite thing to cook? Breakfast, but only on the weekends.
  8. Other than money, time and sleep, what do you want more of? More wishes? Just kidding, I wish we had another kid or two :)
  9. What are the things you do for your kids that, prior to motherhood you'd never consider? Giving up my social life! I never thought that it would be so hard to find time with friends. I have found that I have my few best friends of course, and a lot of friends that are James' friends parents. I guess that is natural, I just didn't realize how little time I actually spend doing what I want to do :)
  10. How do you want to be remembered? As someone who would do anything for anybody. I always try to put everyone's needs above my own.
  11. What else do you want us all to know about yourself? I think I portray myself as snotty sometimes, but really I'm just super shy! If I'm sitting in a room with a stranger, I'm ok with the awkward silence. I'm not good at just getting up and starting a conversation.
