1. Where did you meet your spouse and did you instantly know it was love?
We met in youth group at the school I went to. And no, I didn't believe in love back then. When I finally realized I was in love with him, which was about a year down the road, I had dreamed about the future with him. But, DEFINITELY not instantly! lol
2. What is your favorite room in your house?
Well, the room that I spend 99.99% of my time, is my living room. So, I'd have to say that the living room is my most favorite. This is where my son plays, and we interact most of the time as a family. We also go into our master bedroom & shut the door & turn the t.v. on & lay on the bed watching t.v. And sometimes my monkey will play in the room, which is why we shut the door lol, or he'll lay with us in bed... or climb all over us! lol
3. Can you wiggle your ears?
Haha!!! Yes! I remember back when my biological Father taught me how to do that. lol
In fact, I remember that whole lesson he gave me, it was so hard to do back then...but you could see he was so excited to teach me how to do it... one of the very few funny, fun times I had w/him.
4. What is your evening ritual?
Well, that depends on if I go to work or not. If I don't go to work then it's pretty simple. I just usually do what I had been doing a couple hours prior & play with monkey, teach him all the great things life has to offer & then when he grows tired put him down to sleep. Well, that might change now, since I've been doing a different routine since work has started back up. When we are working, which has been a lot lately; we get home & I take a shower & then I give monkey a wash too & then afterwards we eat dinner. Then, we play some, & then I eventually get tired. In the mix of playing, we'll just call him Daddy for now, lmao, Daddy has been making dinner & after we eat dinner he usually watches some t.v. before going in the bedroom. Around 10pm-ish, monkey will want some milk & I'll give it to him. And then, we've been rockin in my Grandma's old recliner, it rocks back & forth when it's not reclined. So, after that, Monkey snuggles right up to me & 20mins of rocking back & forth...he's out. Then, I get 'me' time & no matter how tired I am...I always seem to become wide awake by 11pm.... and I watch my shows & do my thing online at the same time...until I fall asleep...whenever that may be sometimes. lol
Lately, I've been falling asleep w/the lap top in my lap & waking up when it burns me! lol
5. How many hours of sleep do you need to function?
Most don't believe me when I tell them, but I've been able to only sleep 2-3hrs & function doing manual labor the whole next day & I'm talking 14hrs of straight labor!
Now, on the other hand,,, I can sleep however long one will let me...when the sun comes up, til the sun goes down. It's nighttime that I have the problem sleeping.
