I'd take out a very large life insurance policy (if possible) that would set my husband and kids up for a comfortable life. Every where we went I'd hold hands with my husband.

  43. What type of person angers you the most? Selfish people, stuck up people, people who think they are better than anyone else....it's just annoying

  46. Which type of intelligence do you wish you had: kinetic, visual, interpersonal, linguistic or mathematical? Seriously, I don't know what all that means. I'm guessing linguistic is language & I'd LOVE to know Spanish, French, German, or any foreign language but I'm too lazy to study & work towards this goal on a regular basis
  47. What is your biggest pet peeve? Rudeness, it wouldn't kill folks to say Hi & acknowledge folks in a general way. Saying thank you, appreciating what others do for you. I hate when I see my friends or family get taken advantage of by rude selfish people
  48. What was the one opportunity you always believed you’ve missed out on? One opportunity I'm not sad I missed out on would be having a career. I never dreamed I'd be a homemaker or enjoy it but I do LOVE it.

  50. What do you regret the most? running away when I was in the 9th grade :( 
  51. What is the most hurtful thing you’ve ever witnessed? Why did it affect you? On tv- an old man got hit by a car & all the people that saw, no one went to help him. That broke my heart. I don't guess it affected me but it was the worst thing I've ever seen. 
  52. What would you like most to be acknowledged for in your life? I would like people to say, "people wanted the same happiness & peace that came from her faith", something like that. I'm not very eloquent with words. 
  53. What is the first thought that usually crosses your mind the second you open your eyes in the morning?  Is the coffee ready?? *I set it on delay brew the night before*
  54. What is that thing about yourself you’re sick and tired of? Being sick & dad-gum-tired!! I'm so sick of my allergies but I just can't take a ton of pills all the time, I'm not comfortable with that
  55. Who really depends on you? Why? My kids. Because their kids & they're supposed to be able to depend on their Momma for so many things, food, support, love...
  56. What was the main factor that played a role in your biggest mistake? me not forgiving people that hurt me. keeping emotions bottled up & not sharing my pain. You gotta get that yucky stuff out!! Keeping it bottled up turns you nasty from the inside out.
  57. What was the main factor that played a role in your biggest success? God, he has provided for me & my family all the time!! I have two healthy boys, I am in love with my husband & he loves me too. My family is my biggest success. 
  58. What childhood memory sizzles your heart? Running Track. Something about running was very healing for me. 
  59. What was the most frustrating period in your creative life? I'm not creative, so in that aspect, it's all been frustrating LOL I'd love to be creative but what I can do is follow directions VERY well to re-create ;) 
  60. What is your future self calling for? Creating a homestead, a comfortable home, and teaching my boys old fashioned skills (I'll have to teach myself those also) 
  61. Do you love yourself? Very Much
  62. If you were your own coach, how would you guide yourself? I'd say, don't rush, be patient, PRAY!! Read your bible girl!! I'd point out who I could trust & who I should avoid. I'd encourage Yoga & jogging, healthy eating & organizing more productive days. And I'd end each effort with encouraging words :) 

Do you think it’s easy to answer such questions about yourself?
