1. When you go to Wal-mart, what one thing do you get every single time?
It used to be a Twix bar.  I love Twix.  I haven’t been there lately because we are mainly buying fresh fruits and vegetables, and I don’t buy those at Wal-mart.  I do always get cash back at the register.  Then I don’t have to go to the ATM.
2. What is something that people are currently "into" that you just don't get or appreciate?
I don’t get the giant funky jewelry.  The giant beads on the watch bands and bracelets.  How do they get anything done with those weighing their arms down?
3. What is something that really hoists your sail that other people might feel "ho-hum" about?
I love blogging.  I have always written in my journal, but I am writing things on my blog that I haven’t written in my journal.  For instance, my post on how much I love office supplies.  I have always felt that way, but I never wrote about it.  So it’s been fun to document more about myself.  And my blog is more about me than my kids.  I feel bad sometimes because my husband won’t read it.  But I have to remember that I am blogging for me, not him.
4. Favorite song to sing in the shower?
“Hum Your Favorite Hymn”
“If on occasion you have found, your language is in question,
And ugly thoughts are in your mind, then here’s a good suggestion:
Just hum your favorite hymn, sing out with vigor and vim,
And you will find it clears your mind,Hum your favorite hymn.
Before you say an angry word, remember you’ll regret it.
For once it’s said, the harm is done, and some folks won’t forget it.
Just hum your favorite hymn, sing out with vigor and vim,
And you will find it clears your mind, Hum your favorite hymn.”
5. A really great salad must have this ingredient:
Chopped hard-boiled eggs.  I love them on salads!
6. Advice in a nutshell to new bloggers (one or two sentences):
Be yourself.  This is your blog.  Don’t write for anyone else but you. 
7. What was the alternate name that your parents almost named you? Do you wish they had chosen it instead of the one they gave you?
I don’t think they had any alternates.  I have never asked. 
8. What in your life are you waiting for?
I am trying not to wait for things, to just enjoy the moment.  However, I am waiting for June so we can go to Disneyland!
9. You get a package in the mail. What is it, and who is it from?
My new camcorder that I ordered from Amazon.com!
10. Today--what song represents you?
I couldn’t think of a song, so I asked my hubby.  He suggested “The Climb” which is sung by Miley Cyrus.  I cannot stand her, and I have switched the radio channel every time this song comes on.  He told me to read the lyrics and I started crying.  This is exactly how I am feeling right now.
I can almost see it
That dream I am dreaming
But there's a voice inside my head saying
"You'll never reach it"
Every step I'm taking
Every move I make feels
Lost with no direction
My faith is shaking
But I gotta keep trying
Gotta keep my head held high
There's always gonna be another mountain
I'm always gonna wanna make it move
Always gonna be a uphill battle
Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose
Ain't about how fast I get there
Ain't about what's waiting on the other side
It's the climb
The struggles I'm facing
The chances I'm taking
Sometimes might knock me down
But no, I'm not breaking
I may not know it
But these are the moments that
I'm gonna remember most, yeah
Just gotta keep going
And I, I got to be strong
Just keep pushing on
'Cause there's always gonna be another mountain
I'm always gonna wanna make it move
Always gonna be a uphill battle
Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose
Ain't about how fast I get there
Ain't about what's waiting on the other side
It's the climb, yeah!
There's always gonna be another mountain
I'm always gonna wanna make it move
Always gonna be an uphill battle
Somebody's gonna have to lose
Ain't about how fast I get there
Ain't about what's waiting on the other side
It's the climb, yeah!
Keep on moving, keep climbing
Keep the faith, baby
It's all about, it's all about the climb
Keep the faith, keep your faith, whoa
11. What is one thing that blogging has taught you about yourself?
That I am pretty funny, and I write pretty well.  I have always enjoyed writing, just not for a grade.
12. How are you going to (or how did you) choose the clothes you're wearing today? What do they say about you in general or specifically how you're feeling today?
I bought some new shirts last week that are a smaller size.  I put one on today, and I feel so skinny in it, because it doesn’t feel (or look) like a tent.  And of course it’s pink!  I love wearing pink.  I feel so feminine in it.

I have to say that I'm now going to have to listen to "Climb" I haven't heard that one of hers.
Oh and of course I'm going to probably borrow this meme. ;)
