Hubby does. I’m unemployed by choice right now. Self-employed artist and writer with no income. πŸ™‚

Hubby does, but getting close to retiring and then uh oh. I’m an unemployed, by choice, writer. Soon to be looking for a job. πŸ™‚

Question? Write down your last sent text message.

Year 2012
I delete mine all the time. I don’t really text a whole lot. Mostly the hubby and the kiddos.

I deleted it before reading this question. Usually don’t text much. No one really texts me much. πŸ™‚

Question? What are you running from at this moment?

Year 2012
Small town life for awhile. Not because I hate it, just ready for a change, maybe it is mid-life crisis time. πŸ™‚

Year 2013
How much weight I have gained since high school so therefore MIRRORS! πŸ™‚ Working at that weight issue though. πŸ™‚

Question? What is your favorite thing to do on a Saturday morning?

Year 2012
Sleep in a little. Family time. Chill. Relax.

Year 2013
Chill out of course! I like to sometimes cook a big breakfast. Watch a bit of TV with the hubby. Watch one son bowl when it is bowling season. Watch the other son play football.

Question? Did you complete your to-do list for the day?

Year 2012
Heck no, I am a procrastinator.

Year 2013
Nope. Some done though. Yay! My lists are usually really long. I guess I feel I have to be a super hero or something. πŸ™‚

I did get the emails read, the boys’ laundry done, went to the YMCA and worked out, read blogs, and wrote this blog. πŸ™‚

Yes I have lists on my phone, on paper, and all electronics…still don’t get them done. πŸ™‚

    1. I love to bowl, not currently on a team. My son Jessup (6th grader) is on a team and doing well! Love watching him. My son Adric (5th grader) and Jessup are both on a flag football team. I do like going and watching football but not a real big fan of tv watching. I did watch with hubby one night when KState was playing and then part of a Nebraska game. He is a college football fan. We don’t really watch Pro. What do you like? Do you bowl?


      1. It would be fun to have youngsters to watch bowl and play football. Our son bowled in a league for a couple of years, but mostly he was into extreme biking. I dragged him and his bike around to parks all the time … so he could crash and hurt himself. I tried to be supportive. πŸ˜‰ I bowled in leagues for almost all of my twenties. I love bowling but can’ t do it anymore because of the bad back. I like to watch golf when Tiger’s playing. I don’t have to pay such close attention, and can still write while he golfs. πŸ™‚


      2. I bet the biking was fun to watch but nerve wrecking. πŸ™‚ I hope to bowl sometime again, just conflict of schedules right now. I don’t watch golf but I did play on the high school golf team. It was more for fun and exercise. LOL. I was one of two girls that played back then. Maybe someday I will do it for fun. Hey golf is good for writing. πŸ™‚ lol
