slob, humor, Mystery Award

Created by Okoto Enigma.

(Isn’t that marvelous, for her to create a Mystery Award, when her name is Enigma??   That’s so cool!!    Go check out her blog- that’s exactly why she named it the Mystery Award- for herself!!)

  1. If you could change one thing about our country, what would it be and why?
  2.   I would end abortion immediately, because it’s murder.
  3. Which super hero powers would you like to have, if given a chance? Why ?
  4.     I think I already AM a super hero!!    After all, I decluttered my house down to the bone!   lol
  5. What motivates you to blog (write) ?
  6.     Wanting attention!!      Having a place to pour out my thoughts.    For accountability.    To connect with the world.    Because I love words!!
  7. What is something you like to collect, if anything?  
  8.     It used to be fabric!     And anything purple.     Now, I’m going to collect feelings; feeling good about myself, and how peaceful my new home is.    (Once it’s unpacked!!)
  9. If given the chance to rename any fast food restaurant, which would it be? What would it’s new name be?   Checkers would become Cheeseys.     Does anyone ever even SEE a checker there???     Nope!!    But plenty of cheese!!
  10. Why the brown??    It’s a mystery!!

Please forgive the answers being numbered too.    I just can’t get those numbers to behave!!    Because it’s math- that’s why!!

Thank you, Anne!!

I’m so thrilled and excited!!  My 2nd Blogger Award!!

You like me, you really like me!

This is what Anne said about me:

“Purple Slob In Recovery  – Very encouraging blog which I enjoy reading daily. She describes her life as a mother, wife and grandmother. She has a very positive side to life.”

Wow, so wonderful to hear such good things about myself!!

Rules:

1. Thank and link to the blogger who nominated you.

2. Share ten random facts about yourself.

3. Nominate ten more bloggers who are fairly new to blogging.

Ten Random Facts:

1.  I’m finding out I like a clean house!  (I know! I was shocked too!)

2. Just bought my first (all by myself) home.  (A $500 trailer.  It was a steal!!)  ALERT:  New post coming soon!    (That was it, btw.)

3.  I read books under the covers , with a flashlight, ALL the time as a kid.

4.  I even read in the tub.  (No, I didn’t splash and ruin them.)

5.  I read while walking down the halls, in high school.  (I’m tall, so I held the book lower than my eyes, and never ran into anyone.  … Okay, mostly never….. Okay, hardly ever…..  Okay, once or twice)

6.  I was Sargent At Arms, in my DCT club as a junior.  I was in charge of making sure the boys wore a tie.  I once ran one down across the front lawn, and tackled him.  He put on the tie.

7.  I fell in puppy love with a guy, when I was a senior in high school, just because he was 6’7″.  He was 25, so he wouldn’t date me until I showed him my license, that I was already 18.  Smart guy!!

8.  My second husband died just 2 months after our wedding.

9.  I knew my children were girls, as soon as I found out that I was pregnant, both times.

10. I don’t miss Coke, and doughnuts as much as I thought I would.   (Update, I was only fooling myself.)
