60th post... You ask, I'll answer

I haven’t posted in a while. I still have extra kiddos in my house. With teenage and preteen girls that like computer time, I have not been online much. There is a lot going on in my life right now. Trying to figure out what is going to happen in the next chapters of my life. My youngest will start preschool so I am strongly considering going back to work. This is stressful to me as well as the thoughts of no more babies. I am in a bit of a funk and also facing some depression. My son’s birthday party added extra stress and conflict to my already busy life. As I type this I am currently not speaking to some of my family. And they are also not speaking to me. (dad, sister) This is a post for another time.

I want to get back into the grove of blogging. So I decided to open it up to my readers. This is your chance to ask me any question… Within reason. You ask I’ll answer! I will be back online more often next week and if I have not commented on you blog for a while I apologize. So get busy and ask away.

Happy 60th! I am sorry you are in a funk right now. Seems to be a trend. I hope your family situation resolves itself soon. Those are so hard.

I am running out the door but I will think of a question and pop back in to ask:)

I got some!

(1) Do you think you'll be blogging 5 years from now?

(2) What actor makes you swoon?

Inquiring minds want to know.

I hope things will get better for you soon.:)
So you'll be working as an RN, I assume? How long did you do that before? Do you like it? That would be nice to have the extra $$, huh.
My question is what's the best money you've ever spent?

What are you considering doing when you go back to work? I'm assuming nursing...but what area. I can't remember what you've told me.

What is your favorite book? Why?

What smells make you happy?

What is your favorite moment with your children?

Happy 60th. I'm sorry you are in a funk.......I was in one,'s been a LONG summer. :)

Kim said...

I'm sorry about the funk. I get like that sometimes too. I hope you work things out with your dad and sis too.
My question is what would you do if you had the entire day to yourself?
Take it easy!

Sarah said...

I'm feeling you on the funkiness... must be the weather, or something... I hope it gets much better very soon.

So... questions.
1. What's your favorite personal item to splurge on?
2. What's your favorite money-saving trick (if you have one)?
3. Who would you want to play you in a movie of your life?

I think that's all the questions I have for now... but I'll let you know if I think of more.

Happy 60th post! Sorry for the late reply - we have been out of town staying with Wayne's parents.

Sorry to hear you haven't been happy. I hope everything has blown over with your family.

I've been a bit funk like as well but mine is definately weather related - it's rained here for 2 weeks pretty much!

What would a perfect day look like for you?

If money was no object and you could buy only one thing what would it be?

and finally

From Snow White and the 7 dwarf's who is your favorite dwarf?

Genny said...

I'm so sorry to hear things are hard right now! I hope everything works out soon. Sounds like you have a lot on your plate.
A question? How about what is the most spontaneous thing you've done with your kids? (Can you tell I'm looking for some ideas? LOL. I feel like I'm always so "scheduled" and we have one week of summer left!)

Hey Laurie and Family,

I am in a stage where I'm doing a once a week blog update- don't ever worry about updating/not updating as regularly... the beauty of a blog is for you to be able to get your story out to lots of people.

Frankly, with newborn twins and Jeni and I beginning to transition to "back to school," free time = more time with the girls and less time with the compy.

I've been delinquent on reading up on blogs recently, but wanted to stop by, wish you well, and let you know that, as predicted, Manny killed the Brewers this weekend.

That brings me to my question. Who is your favorite character in the movie, "Major League" and why?

Cheers and take care,
Will & Family
