Old School Blogging / November

This old school comes from May of 2008.  A fun little question and answer meme to get to know each other better.  Here we go.

1.  Where is your cell phone? 
It's on the kitchen counter.
2.  Your significant other?  
My husband is the best guy around.  We have been together for 42 years (married for 40) and I couldn't love him more if I tried.  He's my everything!
3.  Your hair?  
My hair is in desperate need of color!
4.  Your mother? 
My mother is one of the most special, loving, caring, strong and giving people I have ever known.  I am truly blessed that God chose her for me.  Would you ever think she was 87?
5.  Your father?
My father was taken from us far too soon.  He was only 54 when he died.  I was only 22.  We all missed so much with him not being here.  He was one of the best men I ever knew.  He was strong, funny, giving, loving and delightful.  There isn't a day that goes by that I don't miss him.  I love him so much.
6.  Favorite thing? 
Hands down, my family.  They are the lights of my life and I wouldn't be complete without them.  They are followed closely by my camera which I harass them with on a daily basis.
7.  Last nights dream? 
That is a good question.  I don't t remember.
8.  Your favorite drink? 
Iced tea with lemon or Bacardi and diet with lime depending on the time of day.
9.  Your dream/goal? 
I would love to take the whole family, all 14 of us to Disney World for a wonderful adventure.
10.  The room you are in? 
The computer room
11.  Your fear? 
Deep water!
12.  Where do you want to be in six years? 
Exactly where I am right now.  I can't imagine being anywhere my family isn't.  
13.  Where were you last night? 
I was at my daughters house visiting our newest granddaughter.  She is two weeks old and absolutely adorable and perfect.
14.  What are you not? 
Thin, but I am working on it.  I am a work in progress.
15.  Muffins? 
Once in awhile.  Not a favorite of mine.
16.  One of your wish list items? 
I would love new clothes and shoes.  I'm tired of my stuff I have now.  I need a makeover!
17.  Where you grew up?
Chesterton, Indiana   Small Town USA and I loved it.  I still live there 58 years later. 
18.  Last thing you did?
Switched the laundry and put clean sheets on the bed.
19.  What are you wearing?
Comfy pants and a t shirt.
20.  Your tv? 
Not on!
21.  Your pets?
We had the best golden retriever ever.  When we had to have him put to sleep, it was almost like losing a child.  We just haven't been able to get a new dog since then.  I think about it now and then though lately.
22.  Your computer? 
A new Dell desktop that I love!
23.  Your life? 
It's just about as perfect as it could be.  I have a wonderful husband who is still the love of my life after all these years.  We have four wonderful daughters who have all found the loves of their lives.  They all live in the same area as we do.  The furthest one away is eight miles or so.  We have four absolutely awesome and amazing grandkids.  I have a job I love.  I could go on and on.  I am very happy with my life!
24.  Your mood?
Determined!  I have a to do list for the weekend and I will get it done.
25.  Missing someone?
My step dad.  He died a little over a month ago and I miss him so much.  You can read about him here, if you'd like.  He was my "other" dad for 32 years.  He was a good man.

26.  Your car?
A Buick Lucerne. 
27.  Something you are not wearing? 
Make up
28.  Favorite store?
29.  Your summer?
I love my summers.  I work at a school and therefore get my summers off.  It's the best job ever.
30.  Like someone?
I like lots of people.
31.  Your favorite color?
32.  When was the last time you laughed?
About an hour ago.
33.  Last time you cried?
Two weeks ago today when our granddaughter was born.
34.  What's one thing on your to do list?
To get caught up on the laundry and get it all put away.

Okay, now it's your turn to go old school.  Copy the questions into a post and use pictures, if you'd like.  Have fun and be sure to link up here and here


  1. Congrats on that beautiful new granddaughter!! You are blessed Nancy, my friend!

  2. Congratulations your new granddaughter! You certainly have a lot of blessings and it is so nice to hear from happy people. And everyone keeps saying water or coffee, so I'm glad to see someone else spiked their favorite drink like me!
