Saturday 9: Everybody is a Star 1/30/10

This meme was begun by Crazy Sam, here are her words:

"Welcome to Saturday: 9 . What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today's meme!"

Saturday 9: Everybody is a Star

1. Did you ever think that you'd be a star? If yes, doing what? Never.. I had (and still do have) self-esteem issues.

2. Tell us about the last time you had a romantic dinner. New Year's Eve - I made my hubby his favorite meal at home and we snuggled on the couch watching a movie, until we watched tha ball drop and had champagne.

3. Tell us about your worst job interview. I've actually never had a bad interview... I'm pretty good at interviewing. I was really nervous about going on interviews after I left the job where my former boss had assaulted me (it took me 6 months to get the courage to go look for another job and I had to have my husband drive me and wait in the parking lot). After the interview, I got in the car, had hubby drive about 10 yards down the road, pull over, and then I threw up!!

4. Tell us about your stupidest date. I really didn't date much because of the restrictions my parents put on me. The first time I went out with my first husband alone (without a chaperone) was the day we got engaged. Then when Bill and I started "dating" he was 55 and I was 31, so it really wasn't dating.

5. How much in common do you think you should have with a romantic partner? Several things, but NOT everything. You need to have some differences so you have a little "spark" there. But you need to have the "biggies" in common: politics, religion, how many - if ANY - children you want to have (MOST important!!), things like that!

6. Tell us about a favorite meme that you loved but no longer posts. I haven't been blogging that long to know of any... the ones I like are still around.

7. How did you get into blogging? My hubby wanted me to enter some giveaways as a way to occupy my time while I was recovering from lumbar spine surgery as I lie on the couch. Then I started meeting WONDERFUl people, learning about memes, reviews, other peoples families, and I wanted to start posting about my life more. Now my husband says I am addicted, then I remind him it was all his fault, he just shakes his head and laughs.

8. Do you share all your fantasies with a significant other? Yes, and he shares his, it makes for some really fun conversations... :-)

9. What change in your life would you like to happen this year? Selling our current house, so we can build our dream house we have put a deposit on in the retirement community 30 minutes from here that is one-story and much easier on my spine. Plus, I want my son to come back from Afghanistan alive and in one piece, along with all the other deployed men and women.

That's it for this weeks
Saturday 9. Don't forget to link your post and visit the other participants. Have a wonderful week.

Until next time..... Lorie

Sorry about #6 that boss sounds horrible.

Good luck selling your home and I pray your son comes home soon.
