You Got Twenty Questions?



I've seen this played on quite a few blogs and I've always wanted to do it, but honestly I haven't done it mostly because of two reasons:


a) I've always assumed no one would ask anything.

b) I've always assumed I'd get tons of questions (many I'd be afraid to answer).


After pondering it for a few weeks, I have decided that I'll go ahead and play. There are some rules, though! I know. Bummer. Sorry. But would life be like without rules, huh? I promise. They're easy ones.

1) There must be at least 20 questions for me to write a post answering them.

2) You can ask anything you want, about any topic. I will answer to the best of my ability each question.


3) If the question is from an "Anonymous" reader, then I reserve the right not to answer, therefore not counting it as "a question". That said, of course, I welcome questions from Anonymous readers.
(Was that confusing?)

4)
Play nice! :)

So are you ready to play? I look forward to reading your questions.

Have fun!

Right now I'm off to take AJ to the doctor to see what she can do about his croupy, icky, cough that just won't go away!

But before I sign off, I wanted to say thank you and give a shout out to my new friend, Kristin, who lives in Corpus Christi, Texas, for coming out of lurkdom and saying hello! You rock, girl! I am so glad to meet you.

MY QUESTION IS SIMPLE. ARE YOU STILL SIDEWALK COUNELING? IF SO, HOW DO YOU KEEP FROM GETTING TOO PERSONALLY INVOLVED OR DO YOU STILL GET A LITTLE TOO INVOLVED?

Timmy's Girl said...

Hmm...I will have to think about this for a second...

I know, it was the first question I thought of when I first visited your blog:

I have never heard your name before...what is its origin? Where you named after someone? I was so curious and now I might get my answer!

Whoopie!

2. Have you been through really hard financial times, enough to have checks bounce; and if so, how did you handle the emotions?

6. Do you watch soap operas?

7. Are you guilty of going out in your pj's when you're feeling lazy?

My question is simple- Would you come visit my blog and check out my "P's?"

Holly said...

Ohilda-
You know Stefanie from Ni Hao Ya'll personally?! Ya'll traveled home from China together? Wow!! What a small world and a great BIG GOD!!!!
Here's my question:
What's it like being a Mom to grown kids and to toddlers at the same time? How is parenting the "2nd time around" different than the first time? What have you learned that you didn't know the first go-round?
Since one of your commenters already asked 20 questions herself, I think we are safe...the answers will come.
Oh I have another very important question to add:
What's so great about Keifer? Isn't that the 24 guy you love? Do tell! ;+)

Patricia/NYC said...

Wow...there are some great questions here! lol! Since one of mine was already asked, I'll ask this one:
If you could meet anyone for the first time (dead or alive) who would it be & why?

Oh! Just posted my letter "R"...this was quite the challenge! ;)

a corgi said...

wow so many good questions already!!

looking forward to reading your answers

my question: Have you ever been to California?

betty

Your Husband@ said...

Good morning, sweety! Ok since you have to be truthful.... did you really love my Black Velvet Cake??? HA! HA!

Oh! Here's another one: Right now, how many pairs of shoes do you have lying around the house?

Last but not least: Can I give a shout out to all your " peeps?? " GOOD MORNING PEEPS!!!!

Angie said...

This is not a question about you, but one that you of all people will most surely know the answer to...we didn't quite get the kids to bed on time Monday and missed the first 10 minutes of 24! But it's okay. We will recover from that if YOU help us. So, here's the question: How did the lady from the FBI get out of that ditch and how on earth did that bad guy get Jack in a head lock? Inquiring minds want to know! :o)

day by day said...

go take a peek at my blog. : )

Kimber said...

Thanks for stopping by yesterday. I love your blog and hope that your little one is getting better.

Leslie Jackson said...

I know that you have plenty of questions on here already, but since I am a relatively new reader of yours, could you introduce us to your family a bit? (NO! You don't have to give real names if you don't want to!!)

Like... the ages of your children?
Favorite things to do as a family?
Favorite things to do as a couple (you and hubby)?
Favorite foods?
Favorite colors?

You know... things in general.

Thanks!
