Answer Me This: Volume 1

I've been writing a lot of really deep, heavy stuff recently. Or perhaps...the entire time I've had this I thought I'd lighten the mood a bit and get involved in a fun series from Kendra at Catholic All Year! This will be a weekly post on Sundays. I'll answer the questions about myself, and then you can answer them about you in the comments section below! And don't worry, I'll still be doing my normal ranting about life issues. This will just be a nice break in between those posts!

1. What’s the scariest thing that’s ever been in your yard?

These were the good ol' days when she only
weighed as much as a small child

I'll try to answer this question without being gross. Let's just say that I have a 100 lb dog, and she will eat practically anything. ANYTHING. Including socks, underwear, rags, and other things that are not...ahem...usually digested well. So, when we walk in our yard or mow the yard, we often find these items. But they are in a quite different...uh...state than their original because they through Cocoa's...system....yeah....

2. Beards. Thumbs up or thumbs down?

Thumbs down. I have never liked facial hair, and as luck would have it, Trent can't grow a beard! So yay! I find that it's really easy to cross the line between "clean looking" and "unkempt mountain man." I also think that some men can pull it off, but a lot can't. I have never kissed a man with a beard but I would imagine that it is very scratchy and uncomfortable. So no beard for me, thanks!

3. If stuff breaks, can you fix it?

Well...depends on what it is. Anything to do with mechanical, electrical, car, plumbing, yard equipment, furniture, clothing, or any other household appliance? The answer is no. I have absolutely no patience for that sort of thing. I either ask someone to fix it for me or pay someone to do it. So what can I fix? Uh....Elizabeth's boo-boos? Maybe I should just answer this as "no."

4. What was your first car?

1998 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme! My parents were kind enough to get me a car when I turned 16. Partly because I had so many after school activities that I'm sure they needed a break from being my taxi service. I was kids will not be so lucky I'm sure.

5. How often do you eat out?

Normally, I'd say one or two times per week. This month, it's been wayyyyy too much. We try really hard to keep with our budget but sometimes during really busy times when I don't have energy to plan meals as much as I should, we eat out more. We really do love cooking at home, though, so we try to do that as often as possible.

6. Why is your hair like that?

A blog post is coming soon about my hair, actually. Sounds fascinating doesn't it? All I'll say at the moment is I'm trying something new with it. But I've never colored or dyed it...not because I'm against that, but because I'm chicken, I'm lazy, and I'm cheap. I once cut it very short and regretted it so much (it greatly resembled a giant fro, since I have curly hair) that I've been afraid to cut it short ever since then.

Hope you enjoyed the weekly installment of "Answer Me This!" Feel free to answer the questions about yourself in the comments below!


  1. I've never dyed my hair either! I feel like that's a really rare thing these days.

    1. I agree! I figure I'm okay with my hair color so why mess with it? Plus I'm terrified I would hate it! I'm such a chicken when it comes to hair :-)


Feel free to comment! Disagreements are fine, but please be nice :-)
