12. Whose behaviour made you appalled and depressed? Well, in general, there is a lot of people out in soceity that make me sick, but in the last few days here on the homefront, there is more and more that have made me feel ill.
13. Where does most of your money go?The grocery store!!
14. What do you get really, really, really excited about? You know I really get excited about a lot...when I get new ideas for crafting, when I get new crafting, when we get to see and spend time with fun people.

25. What has been your greatest musical discovery? Besides George Strait? Just joking...I guess knowing that when I sing I am not making others deaf! LOL...
26. What are your scrapbooking goals? Mainly, I would like to stay caught up. I would like to be able to keep up to date and make sure they all the important things are noted. I wouldn't mind getting some of my pages published, but as long as my kids leave home with their pallet load of scrapbooks, I'll be OK.
27. What is something that leaves you scratching your head within scrapbooking? Why people will go back and REDO pages they did 10 years ago b/c their style has changed. What in the World are you thinking!!!!

30. What is your favorite all time embellishment? Ribbon.
31. How would you describe your personal fashion concepts? Well, I am a total cheap-o when it comes to shopping for clothes. The stores here are such a rip off and so I usually shop at WalMart or ShopKo, although now that there is a Ross in GF I plan to shop there. I like jeans, I love Aura jeans, and a comfy top. I always said I would never leave my house in sweats...and I never do!! Although I don't like to be gussied up....comfy...thats me!!
32. What keeps you sane? God.
33. Which celebrity/public figure do you fancy the most? Didn't I already mention George? It's no secret I fancy Vin Diesel either. And Josh Gracin. Those three are about it.
34. What political issue stirred you the most? Besides the war, maybe the whole stupid idea of no child left behind. That is dumb!
35. Who did you miss? The family who has passed and those who aren't near us anymore.
36. Who is the best new person you met? Hmmm..that's a toughie. I met a gal from Havre on SCS and she invited me to her stamp club. That's about as new as it gets. I've met alot of cool people online. But it's hard to meet new poeple here! LOL...
37. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned. Stop reaching so far ahead. Live your life in the here and now...make the most of it, b/c it may all be over tomorrow.
38. Quote a song lyric that sums up your life. Me Vida Loca
39. What did you want to be when you were little? Teacher
40. What is something that surprises you? You know, I think nothing really surprises me anymore. You just never know so you have to be expecting it all. That sounds dumb huh. OK, how about how people are so afraid to be honest with themselves and everyone else. Why do you worry so much about what poeple think? If you can be yourself around your friends, then why are you trying so hard to be friends with them? You really should try harder to be kind to those who really matter and will always be there for you.
