I have done a few other posts about myself, for example the one I so creatively titled, Who Am I?, or there is Me, Pioneer Woman?, or one of my faves, What Do I LOOK Like?. Wow, this is starting to give me a superiority complex. Today I am tired, and now, after typing this blog for the third time, I am frustrated. I decided to ask the people who really “like” me for some help. You know, my Facebook friends, all of them. Here are few of their questions and my honest answers. Yes, I promise to be honest.
From Toni: What is your favorite 4th of July memory?
Hmmm….I don’t know that I have that one memory that stands out. I would have the say that this holiday has become more enjoyable since I had kids. We go to a parade, and they get so excited for fireworks. They dig blowing stuff up.
From Tina: Favorite summer time activity that doesn’t cost and arm and a leg?
The pool. Even if it is a total body workout chasing PITA around, they have a blast and it makes for early bed times.
From Yvette: What is your dream?
I am living my dream. I wanted to be a mother and a wife. That’s it. Plus now this blogging thing is working out pretty well too. Life is good.
From Connie: What is your favorite season?
Normally I would say summer, but right now my kids are driving me bat-shit CRAZY so I am going with fall. I love the colors, the temperatures, and the smells are so exhilarating!
From Rosemary: If you could choose one moment in your life to re-live, for reasons good or bad, what would it be?
Oofta, these guys are deep thinkers in the morning. I would have to say, at the risk of sounding cheesy, my wedding day. It was such a fabulous day with all our family and friends, and even despite the ice storm that hit during the reception (it was January in Kansas), it was seriously one of the most AMAZING days of my life.
From Teresa: Have you ever been to West Virginia before?
Yes. Drove through on our way to set up shop in North Carolina. Drove a U-Haul full of our crap through the mountains. Good times, good times. (Can you sense the sarcasm there?) Really, West Virginia is beautiful.
From Melissa: We know you moved around a bit, why? Why did you settle back in Kansas?
Farmer Bob went to work for “the man” after graduating from college. It took us to NC and TX and after 7 years and 2 kids we decided that we needed to come home. We were both born and raised here and Bob wanted to work for himself. Farming really is his second true love, after me of course.
From Tonya: What is your shoe size?
I have, as my Granny once told me, a “firm foundation”. Size 10 and I’m not afraid to use them.
From Kimberly: Besides coffee, what gets you motivated?
My kids, I have no choice. 5 balls of energy that feed off each other, what else would I need?
From Karen: What did you want to be when you were a little girl?
For a long time I knew I was going to be an astronaut. Then the vision went to crap and I realized that I was completely inept at math and science and I then knew that I was meant to be a teacher and a mother. I think it was a much better choice!
From Kari: What is your favorite college ball team and what is your favorite sport?
No brainer. I proudly wear purple and cheer for my Kansas State Wildcats. I am counting the days until kickoff, life just isn’t the same without college football.
From Karen: How old are you and how many kids do you have?
I am 37 and have 5 kids. You can meet them here.
From Selena: Are you really a woman or some “guy” that has a thing for moms and are using this group to speak to us?
Last time I checked I had a fully functioning vagina, and yes, I am using this group to speak to you. It is either you or the voices in my head.
From Helen: How in the hell do you get anything done between your kids, your blog, and your Facebook page?
Good question. I do most of my blogging at night, most of Facebook via mobile, and I don’t really keep up with the house or the kids. Lets admit it, only if you have a maid, nanny, personal assistant, and a chef would that really happen. I have none of the above. Juggling, constant juggling.
From Darla: Do you fart in public and then run away so no one knew it was you?
Doesn’t everybody? No? Oops, my bad. Excuse me. I think we can all agree that farts are funny.
From Michelle: Do you have a favorite extended family member? One that visits you often that you like to drink wine with?
I do have a favorite aunt that doesn’t visit often enough. I love to drink wine with her when she does though. Downside? Her kids are a pain in the ass.
From Beth: Do you have any siblings?
One brother and we will just leave it at that.
From Ruby: What’s your take on Rush Limbaugh?
I avoid political banter like the plague. I have my beliefs, you have yours, and we will let it go from there.
From Meegan: How do you feel about pantyhose, chiropractors, and aliens?
I don’t care for any of them. Particularly pantyhose.
From my dear friend IJHM: Farmer Bob and the farm…what can we thank ya’ll for?
I LOVE this question. Wheat, corn, soybeans, sorghum, alfalfa, cows, sheep, and kids. I think that about covers it.
From Rosalind: Who is your favorite actor?
Ummm….I think someone is new here.

Here are a couple of their favorite posts and a couple of mine:
A big, HUGE thank you to my friends for helping me out with this. So many great questions and if I didn’t answer yours here, I will try to answer some on Facebook today. You guys really do bring a smile to my face each and every day. Don’t forget to join me on Twitter, Pinterest, and Google +. All the appropriate “join me” buttons are up there somewhere.
