Thanks to the fab Draz we have...

Five little questions we answer to get to know each other better and to give our blogging brains a break!  Come join us and ENJOY!

1. What’s your first reaction when you get really angry?

First of all, I very rarely get angry. I really don't even remember the last time I was truly angry...I think it was some time back in November. Which is kinda funny, because in my younger days I was total hot head and would cuss and punch you in a heartbeat. I'm not sure when it started to change...maybe when Dr. Phil got his own show and I always thought he was talking directly to me through that screen :)

If I do get angry, my reactions are totally dependent on who or what I am angry about. At work I remain very calm and really think about what happened to cause my anger. If I am at home I may still spout off a few words of profanity and if I am really, really angry I start to cry...if I am crying out of anger, it is probably best to leave me alone for a while.

2. When is the last time you cried in sadness or in joy?

Now I may not get angry much, but I can cry at the drop of a hat. I cried yesterday. The Rockstar has been caring for me....emptying my drains, changing bandages, etc. All of sudden yesterday when I saw myself in the mirror I started crying. My belly is all swollen, I have an incision from hipbone to hipbone, I have a drain coming out of my left hip that is producing some pretty nasty looking stuff, I have been wearing sweats for 11 days straight )not the same ones of course), ugly granny panties, and oversized shirts. All of sudden when I thought about all that I burst into tears feeling like my Rockstar would never think I was beautiful again, let alone sexy.

I also cry just about anytime one of my boys sends me a sweet text message out of nowhere, or gives me a card with some special handwritten note in it.

Oh, and don't even get me started on Lifetime movies...that will start the waterworks for sure.

3. If the stars aligned and everything was perfect from your partner to your job and income and everything – how many kids would you choose to have?

The stars can do whatever they want...I do NOT want any more kids. Two was good for me. I had mine 8 years apart, so I really feel like it was two separate experiences. And I really think God knew what he was doing when he gave me boys. I don't think I could have handled girls.

4. If you won the lottery – what is the first purchase you’d make?

I would pay off my mother's mortgage and any bills she has....and set her up for retirement. That counts as a purchase since it's her house...right??

5. Repeat question. Summarize your week in real life and in blog land.

In blogland, I feel like I have gotten caught up with most things since I home all day and can read at my leisure. I have noticed quite a few new blogs and I think that is great! Blogging really helped me in the beginning of my journey...I hope others have the same great experience.

Real life was filled with doctor's appointments and trying to figure out why I was feeling so bad and getting a fever. I am so appreciative of all the comments, emails, and text messages of concern. I am feeling soooooo much better today. I have another appointment this afternoon to get my belly button stitches removed and hopefully the left drain will come out. I have not had a proper shower in over a week and would really like to be able to do that without a drain hanging from my neck on a lanyard.

Hear hear for a proper shower! The first shower after being sick or having surgery is always the best feeling. :)

oh you poor is going to all clear up and you won't even be able to see the stitches or incisions and the drain balls are just disgusting...but they keep the swelling will all settle down and you will be even HOTTER than before..don't you worry....have an awesome more mirror looks for awhile!

I've said it a million times and I'll say it again - the first non-drain real shower is almost better than an orgasm. Almost. You love Dr. Phil too? lol xoxo
