Worst trouble you ever got into as a teenager?

Are you a morning person or a night person?

Are you a one-handed or a two-handed Texter?

Democrat, Republican, or Independent..or maybe even Green Party (whatever that is).

Are you a pet person?


1. Worst trouble you ever got into as a teenager?
I can ditto Mama M with the whole unplanned pregnancy at 18 thing. But that's another story .. . and the BEST LIFE BLESSING EVER . . . for another post :)

For being an overall responsible kid, I did do some dumb stuff--well, actually, I had a friend in high school who did dumb stuff and I tagged along like a spineless puppy (ew, weird anology, but you get the gist). We never really got into trouble though. The first time I ever had a drink I was 15 and my friend and I went to a hous
eparty with some people we worked with (from a restaurant) and they were older people--like kinda creepy older people--and the cops came and they made us hide in this closet . . . it was TERRIBLE! I didn't get more than tipsy and luckily the cops didn't look in the closet and we ended up getting out of there alive and unharmed . . .but looking back how STUPID WERE WE?!?!?!

2. Are you a morning person or a night person?
Well, mostly I'm a morning person--I think better in the morning and if I'm working on something challenging I'll go to bed early (like 9:30) so I can get up at 4:00am refreshed and ready to tackle the challenge. I'm crazy like that. However, if I"m not working, I love to sleep in . . . mmmmm . . .. sleep . . . I *heart* waking up around 7am and being sleepy and realizing I can go back to sleep for as long as I want . . .

But, yep, overall I'm braindead by about 8 or 9pm and could solve all the world's problems around 5 am. wierd, I know.

3. Are you a one-handed or a two-handed Texter?
One handed, which may be the reason I'm getting carpel tunnels in my right hand. I can't seem to get the two handed thing down--I'm faster with one hand.
That's what she said! Oh I'm so sorry--hope there are Office fans out there who think that's funny :)

4. Democrat, Republican, or Independent..or maybe even Green Party (whatever that is).
Was a hardcore Dem for years and years; but the last two years have mellowed--being a small business owner and now a Saved Christian--I gotta say I can't claim either side but am decidedly Moderate . . . I guess that makes me Independent :)

5. Are you a pet person?
Not really--and yet we have had several pets over the years (fish, snails, snakes, frogs, rat, and a guinnea pig). The thing is, I'm not great at taking care of any being--animal or human--who can't communicate and tell me what they need. I kill plants and fish with lethal speed. However, kids usually tell you when they need something--so I'm good with those. Oh yeah, this is about pets. We have a Golden Retriever named Drake who is a gift from God! Such a good boy! He's mellow and pretty quiet and a great companion. AND, he lets me know when he needs food/water/to go outside/love :) We do love him :) I think more specifically, we are DOG people. (Drake has Lyme's Disease but seems to be recovering really well for those of you who read my "My Two Sons" post :)

  1. awww I had a golden retriever! she was the best dog ever.. she lived for 16 yrs (when i was a kiddo). I bet drake is just as wonderful as she was!!

    Wierd analogy about the spineless puppy but totally got it! I was the same way

    Have a great weekend :)

  2. 7am blows. It's awful...I can't imagine 5 am. You're weird, girl...but, I still love ya!!!

  3. That's what she said. - hahaha you're too awesome! As far as doing anything functional that early in the am, HOLY MOLY!! I am trying to work out at 5:30am and I swear I almost fall off the treadmill everyday!

    I kill most living things too, well except the kids. :)

  4. Gotta love those Goldens! And I like your "spineless puppy" in number one. I relate ... I may have to borrow that some time!!! ;-)

  5. Now that I've been getting up early to workout for a few months I'm realizing I can get a TON done in the morning!

  6. Love your reference to the Office!! My favorite Michael Scott saying was when he was in the deposition with Jan regarding her dismissal from the company, and was talking about her boobs, and he said "they hang from m'lady's chest"!!! TOO FUNNY...

    Okay, that's enough...

    Great answers by the way! Have an awesome weekend!
