List your goals for the next 30 days.

1. To hit my step goal every day (which I've already failed at today lol).

2. To cook more at home and eat out less. I've already been trying to do this but it's hard. Sometimes it's just easier to pick up Wendy's than it is to make an entire meal that at least three people won't eat.

3. To remember to blog at least three days a week.

4. Start vlogging. I've been saying I want to do this for years and I just always chicken out. I don't like how I sound on camera so the thought of recording myself and putting that on the internet, scares the crap out of me.

5. Lose more weight than I gain...

10 people living or dead you would invite to dinner, include the menu.

1. Marilyn Monroe. Isn't she on everyones list? She lead such a fascinating life and was faced with so many troubles in her short life. I'd love to have the chance to meet her.

A problem you have or have had in the past.

I can't really say that I actually have too many problems these days. Sure we get a little drama here and there, but it's usually nothing serious and tends to blow over pretty quick. Mainly because I just don't care to dwell on it anymore. Which is different for me because drama used to be a part of my every day life. It was insane. Not so much anymore. I feel like a large part of that is attributed to D. He gave me the back bone to stand up and say if you're going to pull into your miserable life, I want nothing to do with you

If you had $1,000,000 how would you spend it?

Why is this always a question? *Sigh*

Lets just get the boring stuff out of the way first OK?

The first thing I would do is pay off my house a
nd finish the repairs and upgrades we want to do it. I'd also get all new appliances.

Then I would put $20,000 in accounts for each of my kids.

Then, I'd take my kids to Disney World! We'd do all the VIP stuff! Then we'd go to Universal and do all the Harry Potter stuff lol.

So there you have it.

I know there's a theme for today, but really, no one fascinates me enough for me to make a whole blog post about them. So I thought I'd just talk about a couple things that have pissed me off in the last week instead.

Favorite movie and why?

This is like asking me who my favorite kid is! I love movies so much. When D and I fist started dating we would go to a movie, go get something to eat, and go see another one. I could watch movies all day long (and have before). So asking me to name my favorite is almost impossible. But I can name three that I can watch over and over without getting tired of them. I'm going to warn you right now though, they aren't going to be recent ones. I find recent movies to be boring and predictable. So here we go!

How have you changed over the last few years? (share pictures)



The last few years I feel like I've changed quite a bit. Not just physically, but mentally. I have always been one to just sort of sit back and let the chips fall where they may, but in recent years I've taken a more I don't need your BS approach to most things. I don't want drama in my bubble. I don't want people who are using me in my bubble. I've done a pretty good job, especially the last three years, of ditching all of that crap. I'm a better person for it.

How Important Do You Think Education Is?

To be honest I have always thought that education was important depending on your area of interest past high school.

I think that other than Geography (which I suck at so maybe I should have payed more attention in that one), Math, and Reading/Writing your classes should be electives. Interested in science? Take that science class. Want to be a writer? Take that composition class (which was my favorite in high school by the way). Do you dream of being an accountant? Take those math classes. I wasn't interested in much of anything that I had to learn in high school. In fact, because of that I barely graduated.

I do think education is important, but I don't think all these classes need to be forced on kids.

Then again, I also don't think school needs to start at 8am and at 3pm. Not when I could have Gaige do all his school work in a few hours.

So there you have that.

Favorite TV Shows and Why?

Oh lord almighty. I watch a lot of TV. I always have. So I have several shows that I watch all the time.

What are your biggest regrets?

The first thing that comes to mind is my grandpa. I didn't visit as much as I should have. I saw my grandma all the time but because my grandpa was always working I didn't see him as much as I would have liked to. And near the end I knew it was coming and I still didn't go down there enough. Then again, when I look back, what's enough exactly? Every day? Moving in? I couldn't have spent enough time with him to make it feel like I was OK with losing him. I could have spent every single second of every single day with him and it wouldn't have been enough.

On that same note, not having D go back to the house that night he passed and get Gaige, I regret that more than anything. He should have been there. Close. Because he was on my grandpa's mind. I hate that I thought it'd be OK and there was no reason to go anywhere. I hate that I took that from Gaige and from my grandpa.

Speaking of Gaige, if I could go back to when I found out I was pregnant with him, I don't think I would have told his sperm donor I was even pregnant. I could have easily quit my job, stopped coming around, and no one would have known anything about it. We didn't run with the same people and I didn't come to that town for hardly anything. I could have saved us all the trouble ya know? But I didn't. Because I thought he'd change when he had a kid on the way. I was wrong.

Book you could read over and over again. 

Hmm...

Well, I've read 50 Shades of Grey (the trilogy and Grey) a few times. I don't ever get tired of it even though I know what happens.

Your highs & lows of the past year.

Lord almighty, I couldn't even come up with this list lol.

Lows:

To be honest I don't think I've had any lows so far in 2016. There's been no real drama (outside the norm) and no one has broken anything lol. So we're all good.

Highs:

 
There is not a single thing that could make the year better than it has been already!

15 Facts About Yourself.

I hate trying to come up with these things. But I'll try my best!

1. I over think everything. This is definitely something I need to work on. Sometimes I get myself all worked up because I go through every possible scenario in my head. I think we can all agree that that is an awful idea. You either get your hopes up way too high or you imagine the worst possible outcome and make yourself worry to death over nothing. It doesn't ever end up working out the way you really think it will.

Your Earliest Memory.

I don't remember how old I was. Probably pretty young because my grandpa Dwight (moms dad) still lived in the house they grew up in.

I can't get to specific, I don't remember it vividly or anything. I just remember it happening.

Anyway, it was summer time, all of us were running around his front yard and in and out of the garage.

He was sitting there talking with my uncles I guess, but they were also making ice cream! In old ice cream maker not one of those new fangled ones you can pick up at Target today. It was big and kind of loud.

I remember the ice cream tasting amazing.

Where Would You Like to Visit/Live One Day?

I really want to visit a lot of places. Greece, Italy, Florida lol. I doubt I'll get to go to any of the foreign places I have on my bucket list, but I am going to Florida in December so go me!

As for living somewhere else? Well, I live in Illinois, which has got to be one of the worst effing states in the country. D and I have talked many many times about moving south.

We are thinking somewhere like Tennessee or maybe Missouri. We aren't totally sure yet.

To be honest we probably won't ever leave IL on a permanent basis. I could never leave my family. As much as some of them make me crazy, I know they have my back (for the most part). I know for a fact I could not leave my sister. I would probably die and she would be come to visit me all the time lol.

Maybe when the kids are grown? I don't know.

Guilty Pleasures.

Hmm... I don't think I have too many. But I can think up a couple.

The Kardashians. I know I know! How could I possibly sit through their BS? I can't help it though. I like to watch their show. If only to have something on as background noise while I do my nails. They're so superficial and into themselves that it's insane. I've never seen someone be that way in real life (apart from some certain females).

If you could have any job in the world, what would it be?

Are you kidding me right now? lol I have been wondering what I wanted to be when I grew up since I was five. And I'm still trying to figure it out.

But I guess I'd say, if I could choose any job, a writer. I love to write (obviously I blog right?) and I love to read.

{I Just Need to Bitch}

I love my children. I love my children. I love my children. Take a deep breath Kristin. If you were going to get rid of them you should have signed them over in the hospital. Please lord give me the strength I need to survive the next ten years without ending up in prison.

{30 Day Blogging Challenge: Day 8}

A day when you felt most satisfied with your life.

Lordy. This one is kind of hard. I don't think there has been a certain day that I could just write about.

But I am pretty satisfied with how my life turned out. I have a great husband, who is a great father. We own our home and don't have to deal with idiot landlord who refuse to fix shit. I have some good kids who make me crazy on a daily basis. We are comfortable with where we are in life right now.

I'm not sure what else to say about it. I'm happy. I'm satisfied. I'm good with everything happening right now.

Favorite Childhood Toys.

I was a child of the 80's and 90's.

In my opinion those were the years that toys were toys. They let you use your imagination and learn something all at the same time.

Does your zodiac sign fit your personality?

I'm a Taurus. The bull.

I don't really follow astrology so I had to look up the traits of female Taurus to see if I'm anything like one or not.

What are your favorite comfort foods and why?

I love food. Which is probably why I'm as big as I am right now. Blah. Lets not dwell.

Usually when I'm looking to drown my sorrows I reach for the nearest bag of chips. I prefer Lay's Classic. I think I inherited this from my dad. I can sit down with a bag of chips and some french onion dip and eat the entire thing. Not something to be proud of I am fully aware. But I love them.

Top five pet peeves.

Oh good lord I just have to pick five? It seems like the older I get the more annoyed random stuff makes me.

Loud Eaters. So gross. Stop smacking your lips. Stop chewing with your mouth open. There is absolutely no damn reason for you to make noise when you eat. It's not only disgusting it's rude.
