Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros - "Home"

To my dear and loving husband, father to our son:
     Thank you for introducing me to this band for I could not have said it better myself. As soon as we found out that our little Finn baby was coming you became an incredible father before he was even here. Well, after you became an amazing husband, quickly naturally. You held our hand though my gallbladder fun and my awesome migraines, then as Finn came bouncing into the world. Those first several days when I could barely raise my head, you took him to the doc twice! Just when we thought that was as rough fun as it would get, I found us some snazzy new digs in a hospital for a few months. (Hey, it was waterfront property.) It was so exciting to see you two stroll in every morning, with the whole nursery in-tow, and those days that Finn got to go home for a break and you resumed night duty with me on the 7th floor of the TSU in that window seat those plush sleeping quarters. (Guess we finally got that long honeymoon after all.)Those days spent in the Levee Run apartments following discharge are some of my fondest memories of me, you, and Finn together. I am so proud that I have my scar to look at everyday and remember, not only that it saved my life, but that it was such a miraculous time that we got to share together as a family. You have done so much since then that I hate myself for not keep a journal of all you are every day. I guess if times ever get rough, we can just look back through THESE and realize that if we made it thought all of those adventures in the first nine months of marriage we, together, can do anything.

Happy 1st Father's Day.
I love you now and forever...

A Great Big Gulp of "UGH!"

If you could go back to college would you change your major? 
If you were to go to college right now...what major would you choose?
I doubt I would change my major if I went back to college because I loved my job so much. However, since I already have that degree and certification, if I went back I would try something new. I would really like to learn all about graphic design or something web-based. 
What do you love most about your home?
When I first moved out here [into my husband's home] I was not happy AT ALL with the fact that I am now at least  15 - 20 minutes from ANY form of food, shopping, etc. I had lived the first 24 years of my life in the middle of town. (Except the first three when we lived on Fish River in Silverhill.) It is still extremely difficult knowing that I have a bit of a drive anytime I want to go anywhere other than Chevron, but on the other hand I have grown quite fond of not having next-door neighbors. If we could, we would buy the lots on either side of us so that we would have it like this forever. =)

What types of books do you like to read (if you like to read at all)?
I read pretty much anything. I am not into any  fantasy novels with the exception of Charlaine Harris. I really like how she made her vampire series The Southern Vampire Series. Most of the time I have to have something that is "can't put down," like James Patterson - which is quite embarrassing as an English teacher. I absolutely LOVE Mary Kay Andrews. I read a good bit of adolescent lit. trying to find books that my students would like: Sarah Dessen, Sharon Draper, Gary Paulsen, etc. I love Louise Rennison's Georgia Nicolson series; it totally transports me back to an awkward adolescence. I am currently determined to read some classics: Pride & Prejudice, Jane Eyre, and The Catcher in the Rye. I also reallllly want to read Gone With the Wind. 

What is the grossest thing you've ever eaten?
When I was in middle school we had driven about 30 - 45 to the beach, which when you are 11 is an eternity and I was so thirsty that I felt as if I could jump into the pool and gulp down every gallon of the chlorinated water without batting an eye. Naturally, when we arrived at the condo everyone else was outside on the beach and pier, but I didn't care. I bolted in leaving the door open behind me, zoomed up the stairs and immediately started voraciously rummaging through the kitchen for a cold drink. There it was, calling my name, as if basking in the glow of a beam from heaven: giant ice bucket of water - the perfect slush of ice and water. I don't think that I even looked for a cup. Assuming everyone was done with it, since they were back outside swimming, I cupped my hands together and took a big gulp. AHHHHH! The world's most disgustingly shocking chug of water had failed me terribly. That "ice bucket" was an ice cream maker bucket!!! …and that was the day that I learned you use rock salt to make homemade ice cream.

If you HAD to be a character on a TV show, whom would you be?
I would like to be Fiona/Fi on Burn Notice. She's intelligent and quick-witted, lives in Miami, can kick anyone's butt, use any firearm with complete confidence, and drives the finest, fastest cars. Not to mention that weight and a tan are apparently no issue for her. (I would like to keep my curves though.) Plus, she has two fab guys that always have her back. Hmmm. Now that I think about it, I wanted  to be her when I was in 2nd grade, and she played Sonora in the film Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken…weird.
