Zander's Mom from Zander and Me was interviewed by one of her fellow blogger friends and I thought it would be fun to be interviewed. I interview people all day long and get tired of asking the questions....so this could be fun!!
1. On your very first post you said your life could be a movie on Lifetime. What would you call the movie and who would you want to play you?
That is a good one. I would probably call the movie. "Wow...you did what?" and the actress I would want to play "yours truly" would be....Cameron Diaz....just because I love her! lol She would have to be able to portray a confused alot of the time, at once time deceiving and ashamed, trying to turn her life around, awesome mom and ultimately a good girl! I think she could do all of those things!!
2. Congratulations on your house. How is he decorating going? Do you have more pictures to share?
Funny you should ask... my family member that read my blog will get a kick out of this for sure!! I have probably moved enough times to fill up several picture albums!! Fun? NO! Would I like to stay in one place....SURE!! I thought this house would be it for awhile...i know i say that everytime...but...it smells like shit all the time! I am talking real sewage...no pun intended. I can't stand it. The owners have been down and told us that there is not a problem...ok, when you have to smell crap all the time there is a problem! BUT, my youngest daughter needs to change school districts for the next school year....so we need to move anyway...so how about I get back to you on this one? lol (no smart comments from my family please... :))
3. I notice that you talk a lot about how wonderful your parents are and how great your childhood was - another thing you and I have in common. What is one of your favorite memories from childhood?
wow...that is a tough one. I remember so much of my childhood and so much of it is good. As far as my immediate family, mom, dad etc i would have to say our summer vacations to Myrtle Beach. We went there alot, so much so that when i go there I know my way around and how to get to certain places without asking. Every time we went there my dad would ALWAYS get lost in the same spot on the way there, it wasn't funny at the time because he would get mad since he was irritable anyway from driving all night...but now we can laugh about it.
Another great memory is my grandparents...they were so much a part of our lives in everything we did. The closeness that my family had (has) was irreplaceable...and when they passed on alot of things changed. Not a day goes by that I don't think of and miss them. They were definitely the "rock" of our family!
4. Are you and the kids planning on any trips this year? If you are choosing to stay close to home, like Zander and me, what things do you all do for fun in the summer?
I would love to take my kids to the ocean....but I am not sure that is feasible this year for obvious economic reasons and I am not the "best" saver of money...again...no comments from the peanut gallery....so, we will probably do a Zoo day, amusement park day, things close to home. But if anyone would like to donate to the Ocean Fund feel free to email me!! :)
5. We’re both awesome single moms, obviously! I see a lot of myself in Zander in the things he says and in his actions – some good, some not so good. Your girls are older than Zander so I’m wondering if the things they say and do remind you a lot of you at their age? If so, what are they?
OMG...my oldest is just as stubborn and hard headed as I am. Always has to have the last word and will argue until the cows come home....she is alot like me...I sucked my thumb and she did too, (i still catch her with it in her mouth while she is sleeping sometimes), she is very nosey and likes gossip...like me. Always wants to be in on the conversation and doesn't want to miss a thing!
The youngest on the other hand is very independent, very high strung, which are not qualities that I have...but she is also very loving, and helpful which I would like to think that she gets from me. She is a picker like myself, if something needs picked i will pick at it until it is gone. She eats like I do...pretty much anything! lol
So that wraps up my interview....that was fun!! Nice to be asked the questions once instead of me asking them all the time. If you would like to be interviewed just leave me a comment stating so and I will email you your questions. I will try to get them to you today but can't make any promises.....I need to get some work done here sometime!!
