1. Have you ever forgotten your child in a store or at school?

I have never forgotten them anywhere but once I was late to pick CC up from kindergarten. She was the second to last person to leave for the day. She was so scared and nervous and I remember it was the day before they left for the Thanksgiving holiday. She brought home this little tiny jar with homemade cranberry in it with a little poem attached to it saying how she know I love her and she is thankful for me... I felt like the absolute WORST mother in the world that day. I was never, never late even once after that and still up to today!
2. Where did you go on your very first date? (Like...first first, not first with your spouse or current significant other!)

My husband was my first date. We went to the Pig Stand. A very popular restaurant here in town. I was so nervous. I didn't eat a thing, only had a glass of water. He munched down though. I remember being hungry but too nervous to eat. He had a nice hamburger and fries.

3. What's your "silly" fear? (We're not talking water and heights.)

Bees, wasps, hornets. I get so scared I can't breathe. I feel all shaky and nervous. I start sweating and my heart pounds. It's really bad. One summer we were all in the car with my mom and had the windows down. I was driving over an over pass when a bee flew in the car. I let go of the wheel and started flipping out. Mom had to grab the wheel to get us safely over. It was terrible but it is something I am working on.

4. Confrontation: do you cause it, deal with is as it comes, or run far far away?
I usually deal with it as it comes. I try to avoid it as much as possible by approaching problems as they arise so as to avoid a confrontation. However, it has happened a couple of times where I had to confront the person, but I knew I was in the right and I was being honest and true and I let the person know. Please don't think just because I am nice I will sit quietly to the side while you talk about me and lie about me. Especially when I know what the truth behind the matter is. I stated my case once. No need to go on and on about it. Then I walked away. Things straightened out very soon after.

5. Wood floors or carpet?
Wood!!! When we bought this house there was carpet everywhere!! Even in the bathrooms. Ugh!! So, we took all the carpet out and replaced it with wood. Carpet causes so many allergies. There are enough here in south Texas, I don't need to add to it with carpeting. I don't miss carpet, I don't like carpet and I hope I never have to have carpet anywhere again. My mother in law is moving in with us in September and we will have to move to a bigger house. I'm starting to look around and if I see a house with carpet I immediately add on the cost to have it ripped out and wood flooring installed. I just can't do carpet!
