Grilling Goodness #2

Golden Goodness asks 8 random questions every Friday. Here are my answers...

1. What is your least favorite aspect of Election Year? All the nastiness, the ENDLESS commercials, the phone calls, and the lies.

2. What is something your spouse could do to make you feel special? He always says he loves me, kisses me goodbye or goodnight, take walks together and sometimes he does my chores.

3. Do you complain at restaurants or do you just tip less? I would complain if things were really bad, but usually we just tip less.

4. If you had it to do over again, would you choose the same wedding date you had? Yes, it was a gorgeous outdoor wedding!

5. What kind of car do you drive? A Honda CRV...(shameless husband sells them! Hondas are great! Everyone should own one, in my opinion.)

6. If you have siblings, are you close to them? I have 4 brothers and 3 sisters. There are 20 years between the oldest, Kurt, and the youngest, me! We all have different degrees of closeness with each other and this has changed over the years. I am very close to my sisters, Karen, MaryKay and Genie. Pretty close to my brothers, Mark and John and not very close to the older two boys, Kurt and Kent. I know they love me and we are very supportive of each other. We talk more on the phone then get together because we are so spread out, all over the country.

7. Do you spend the same amount of money on each child at Christmas or just buy a certain number of gifts? I don't have this issue right now. When we were little, my mother would spend the same amount of money on us. Now we choose names. It's much easier, especially when you have a large family.

8. What phrase do you find yourself saying all the time? Being a teacher, there are quite a few: "You choose the behavior you choose the consequences." "That is not acceptable." "Would you jump off a bridge if Billy did?" "Stop the chatter." "Use your time wisely." "What questions do you have?" "Does that make sense?" "Take your hands out of your Disney desks." "Show me you're ready to listen."

Stop by Golden Goodness and play along!

Aren't these fun to do? I am really enjoying them.

You are from a huge family. I did not realize that you had so many siblings. I always love witnessing large families; it makes me think of the Waltons. There is a very special bond between a family with so many members.

I liked your number 8 answers...Do you sometimes find yourself saying those things in your sleep.;) I know I do.

I finished my answers this morning, but I am going to wait and post them on Monday.

Have a great weekend, Tracey!

Great Answers!!
7. We exchange names in our family, too, just not the kids. We all buy for the kids until the graduate high school.

8. LOVE these!

You did great, thanks for playing!
