A Week Of Me...Me

Thanks to blogexplosion I've been seeing these meme things all over the place lately so I figured I would do a post of them. There's no way I'm going to do a weekly post or a daily post of these things so here in one post you get a whole week's worth and probably more knowledge about me than you ever wanted. Enjoy. :)

Monday- Couldn't find any for Monday that didn't suck. Next...

Tuesday Twosome:
1. Do you care what other people think? Explain: Not really. Why? Because life is too short to care what other people think and you will never be able to please everyone. It's much easier to just be yourself and the hell with everyone else.

2. What two things do you sense you're supposed to do before your life is over? Get a college degree and whether I'm "suppose" to or not I'm damned and determined to see my children become adults. This is a hard one when you don't know if you have 5 years or 15 years. I also think I'm suppose to write a book that will be published. Maybe that's just wishful thinking. LOL

3. Is your family life the way you imagined it would be? If not, what can you do to change it? Oh hell no! I once imagined a perfect life with a perfect husband and perfect kids. I also was NOT suppose to get cancer at any point during that little dream and most definately my kids weren't suppose to get it! If my husband would just quit being such a butt so often things would be pretty good. Oh and if he'd quit spending money like it's water that would help too. ;)

4. If you can go back to your childhood for one day. What day and age will you choose? None, my childhood was an honest hell filled with abuse and pain.

5. What are two skills you've wanted but don't have? Better writing skills (so I can get a job or write a book and buy my villa in Tuscany...hehe) and be able to paint beautifully

Wednesday: Wednesdays obviously suck for memes too unless you want to play one with scriptures. NEXT!!...

Thursday Thirteen: Thirteen things about me.
1- I'm 6' tall and have been since I was 17
2- I hate my height and jokes about it
3- I had my first child and first marriage both at 16
4- I've been divorced twice and married three times. Two of those times were just really stupid choices on my part and I've always wished I could have just been married once and that's it.
5- The huge U-shaped scar on my neck from my last cancer surgery makes me feel very very ugly but I try to pretend it doesn't.
6- The thought of not being around long enough for my youngest child to remember me scares me and makes me cry sometimes
7- I honestly love homeschooling and wish I had more energy to do really fun things with my kids.
8- The scene in Armageddon where Bruce Willis is telling Liv Taylor goodbye makes me cry like a baby everytime
9- I openly and honestly hate my mother. She's the most ignorant, selfish, and hateful person I've every known in my life. If she's reading this I hope she remembers that and quits internet stalking me.
10- I am not very tolerant of religiously hateful people (my mother is one). Hating a person because they don't believe the same things as you is ignorance plain and simple.
11- I think homophobes, racists, pedophiles, moms who kill their children, and abusers are the most disgusting people on the planet.
12- I am pro-choice but not pro-abortion and yes, anyone with any intelligence knows there is a difference!
13- I will finally be going back to college either this summer or fall to pursue my degree. I plan on Majoring in Philosophy with a double Minor in Religious Studies and Creative Writing. All three are passions of mine.

T.G.I.Friday: Most of these sucked too but this one wasn't bad
1. If you could "unknow" just one thing, what would you want it to be? That the world is so full of hate and ignorance

2. What truth about yourself do you wish wasn't so? I let other people rule my life for so long that I ended up screwing my kids out of a better life.

3. What truth about the world do you wish wasn't so? Again, that it wasn't so full of hate and ignorance.

4. If you could banish the existence of one famous person, who would it be? George W. Bush, he honestly makes me sick just looking at him

5. Who is the one person you know that you wish you've never met? Just one? Wow, hmmmm I honestly can't pick just one. The three though would be my first two exes (relationships) and my hubby's ex. All need a swift kick to the head.

The best idea I found was the Thursday Thirteen. Do they have ones like this for the other days of the week? Am I going to have to be the one that starts some of these stupid things just so I don't have to go searching for disappointment?

I might do the Thursday one again just because it was kind of fun. I'm not a big "meme" person though and everytime I think of the word "meme" I picture the chic from the Drew Carey Show. LMAO.

If you'd like to do this on your blog be sure to leave me a link so I can come read yours too.

What the heck is blog explosion?:-)

I am not big on "memes," but I enjoy reading them ... I am glad I go the opportunity to know you better. I hope and pray you'll go back to college soon. Philosophy ... religious studies ...and creative writing - WOW! :-)

By the way, I also have a "hot button" about intolerance.

Steph, just go to and read about it. It's cool if you're wanting to surf for new blogs to read or get more traffic to your blog. Beyond that, I have no clue what the other stuff is for. LMAO
