BYOC Friday

BYOC is 5 little questions – some funny, some serious – that we answer to get to know each other better and it's a free blog topic for Fridays when our blog brains are fried before the weekend! Feel free to join us! Post the questions and answers in your own blog!

1. Seeing that it's a patriotic holiday of sorts I thought of this one: Where were you on September 11th?
I was in sales at the time and was calling on a customer at the Sheriff's office. His secretary ran in and said a plane hit one of the Twin Towers, so we went in to the break room to see it on the news. Right when we walked in the room, the second plane hit. I just cried and prayed and was so afraid for the future of our country. I left work early that day and picked my kids up from school. I went home and sat with them on the sofa and prayed with my boys for healing for this country. I remember as a child my mom saying she would never forget the moment she heard that President Kennedy had been shot. I feel the same way about 9-11.

2. What is your idea of fun? If given the chance to skip work/life for an entire day, what would you do? (assume you'd be by yourself)
I would clean my house, take a shower, sit in front of the TV and be in control of the remote, for a real change. Then I'd watch a chick flick, take a nap, drink a glass of wine get dressed and wait for my sweet hubby to come take me out!

3. Suggestion from a follower. Some blog questions.

How many blogs do you follow? I'm not sure, probably 120.
Do you read them all or just your faves? I don't read them all, but I read my dashboard at least. There are about 20 that I always read.
Do you comment a little, a lot, on all? I comment pretty often. I like to let people know that I'm reading, even if my comment isn't very inspiring.

Have you ever unfollowed someone because of something they said or you didn't like their blog? For some reason, blogger seams to unfollow people for me all the time. I've never stopped following because I didn't like what someone had to say.
Do you routinely unfollow and why? Not routinely, but sometimes, if they quit blogging or are very inconsistent, I'll stop to keep my dashboard under control.

4. Repeat question. Pick one day and one healthy thing you'll do for just that day next week.

I will resume my walking. I have a bobo on my foot, so I haven't walked at all this week. Next week I will walk at least 4 days…promise!

5. Repeat "Make someone a superstar" question. Whose blog or blog comment stuck with you this week and why?

There are so many, but this week, Tina was the SOB and her quote about her weightloss: "For the first time in my life, I feel normal and I want that gift for everyone!" well, it just made me cry. I felt her gratitude and understood what this process has meant to her. She's one of my favorite bloggers and I just feel like I know her. Anyway, there are so many others, but that one really struck me.

I LOL at "...sit in front of the TV and be in control of the remote, for a real change."

Just to know you are reading is enough for me. Thats all the inspiration I need.

Hope your bobo on you foot heals soon.

Happy 4th of July!!

I follow about 10 and comment when I feel the need. It is nice to know that people are reading my blog so I like to do the same with others.
If I had a day off, I would read a book, take a nap, and maybe organize something that is driving me crazy.
