Here are the questions we're chatting up this week.....
Stephanie asks, "What kind of competitions do you prefer to watch? Dancing, singing, or cooking?I love to watch singing competitions - and by that, I mean shows like American Idol or The Voice. I find myself holding my breath and hoping people hit the notes! I feel so badly when they don't. Occasionally, I will watch Dancing with the Stars, but I'd much rather listen to people sing!
My Kid's Mom asks, "Do you work? Are you retired? Are you a stay at home mom?
I stayed at home for 12 years when my kids were little, but I have never worked harder in my life that when I was a stay-at-home mom. I have worked outside the home most of the time since my youngest started 4th grade. I am a Realtor and my hours are somewhat flexible - it works perfectly for me!
Empty Nester asks, "What's your favorite thing about winter?
Well, honestly, Winter is my least favorite season. But, I do still get excited when the snow falls; and I love wearing warm sweaters and boots....and I have a couple of fringed shawls that I am rocking this year!
Homeschool on the Croft asks, "What do you love most about where you live?"
I love that all of my family lives nearby, here in the same town - all three of my grown children, my two grandkids and both of my parents. Plus, I love that I live in the same neighborhood where I grew up - only 4 blocks from my childhood home. What I love specifically about the house we I live is the wonderful natural light we get here....lots of southern exposure!
Did you or your children(grandchildren too) ever have a dollhouse?I had a wonderful doll house when I was a child. It was a pressed tin model with the decor and fixtures painted on. It had two levels and a lovely little "flagstone" rooftop patio out to one side; the style was very colonial. It looked just like this one that I found on Ebay....don't even ask how much they go for now......
My sister and I spent countless hours moving the little plastic furniture around inside; maybe this is where my love of rearranging furniture started! Ya think?!?!?
