You Asked - Round 5

There is actually going to be 6 rounds. But they should not be near as long as Round 4.

SillyHily asked:
1) Tell us about your family. Do you have children? I do not have children of my own. I will go ahead and answer a few questions that might come up here. I can't have children of my own. I have two wonderful step-sons! And I have two wonderful twin grandkids. (I just got home from seeing them and am missing them pretty bad.) I love them all like they are my own. And would do anything I could for them.

2) Any brothers, sisters? If so, are you close? I have one sister. And we aren't that close. I have tried and tried, but I guess we just won't be. Oh well.

3) Do you live near your family or are you scattered all over the country? I guess you could say our family is scattered all over the country. My sister stayed in our hometown. I moved away and now live approx. 160 miles away. My grandparents live approx. 130 miles away from me, and approx. 160 miles from my parents. And then we live 10 hours from the kids.

MJ asked even more questions. And I know she is sitting on pins and needles waiting for my lame answers. HeeHee So here goes:

1) Which one of McD's friends would you marry? You are being forced to choose someone here, non of that "I was made for McD talk," even though I know it's true. hehe Tell us who it might be and why. Hmmm! You have to know that this is a very difficult question. McD has pretty high standards for friends, so there are just a few true friends. McD said, "What about MM (Marlboro Man, Ree's husband)?" But he is married to Ree. He is a great guy, don't get me wrong. But, I really like Ree and so I just can't say that. He is a hottie though, isn't he girls! So I am going to say Mark. And why? Well, he is a really good guy, he is a nice looking man, has a great job and he calls me Beautiful! You gotta love that.
2) What is the one big regret you have in life? I caused someone I love with all my heart a lot of pain. I am pretty sure I have been forgiven by this person, but forgiving yourself is harder to do. I certainly learned from my mistake though. And, no - I won't be going any further. Don't even ask. This person reads my blog and would be hurt all over again if I wrote about it. And I won't do that.
3) On the flipside. What has been the highlight of your life? There happens to be two highlights of my life. Poohs & Punky, our Grandbabies. 'Nuff Said.
(I would have added photos, but Blogger is being
a big Butt!)

Stay tuned~ tomorrow night will be the last Round.

What the crap! I can't believe you guys are prepared to answer questions like this. It's entertaining but it must be awkward.

That one of Marnie's about who you would marry was a definite lose/lose. No way I would answer that.

Anyway, thanks for the treats.

You take so much time with your GLOBBER friends... How was Creed? Hope you had a wonderful Labor Day Weekend...except for learing about Steve Irwin, ours was nice.

You guys are so funny. Do you really think I would answer these questions if my McD would be upset. I don't know if or when Ree will see this post, she is a really busy girl, but I have told her to her face that MM is a StudMuffin. :) She knows he is. But she also knows I love my man, and my man only. And McD knows who Mark is, I know who Mark is, but there isn't anyone else reading my blog that knows who Mark is. Oh and Mark doesn't read this blog. It might not even be his real name. Hmmm! If SillyHily will answer where the wildest place she has ever had sex - I can answer these. Were they really that bad?

Swampwitch - Creede was great! It just gets harder and harder to leave each time we are there. When Poohs wrapped his arms around my neck and said, "Grandma, I don't want you to go back to Okgaoma." I almost broke down. But I managed to tell him I wanted to stay but I couldn't and would be home soon. It is amazing how much you can miss someone really, some"two" (Poohs and Punky)

And the death of Steve Irwin was a total shocker. Very sad.

Funny how a man looks at the you ask I tell (re WT comment)

I love the nicnames of your grandkids.

Julie!! That was great.

I asked that question just *knowing* you would consult McD about that. Too cute. (and yes Ree's hubby is a hottie. big time.) WT ~ it's not awkward if you get your significant other involved. It's kind of funny when they tell you who they might see you with, or the fact that no one they know would measure up. I love questions like that!! Julie you handled it like a pro.

Did McD agree that Mark is a good choice?

Ah it wasn't that bad. At least we didn't ask you about your first period.

(I only thought about posting that for an instant. The thought passed. You are safe.)

heheheh! Don't worry. My question askin' days are over.

Dang woman! You do answer the hard ones don't ya? hehe

I love getting to know more about ya....

MJ - HA! It is so funny that you asked if McD agreed that Mark was a good choice. Here is what happened. LOL
I wrote the post and published it and then said you will never guess who I put that I would marry. I asked him if he wanted me to tell him or if he wanted to wait and read it for himself. He said he wanted to wait. Here is the email I received this morning.
"I didn’t even think of Mark. That’s probably a good choice."

There ya go.

Cheeky - umm, your turn! How was the dentist?

Girl....go to photobucket.com. It beats the crap out of blogger for posting pics. It's quick and easy. Let me know if you need help...er instructions on posting it in your blog posts. The only thing I would recommend is reducing the size of your pics once in your post or it could displace your sidebar. It's easy. Click on the photo once it's in your post and drag the corner down to the size you'd like.
I don't have any kids and never will. I also don't have any step kids much to my sadness.
P.S. *giggling* wv was 'iummm'

Answer those questions. Share those things. It's the best part about blogging. The trick is to not dump the info but put it artfully, something I'm still learning to do.
I love your quote of the day series. Why'd ya stop? I send out a thought for the day or TFTD Monday thru Friday to a select bunch of folks. It's inspirational, not funny, although sometimes it's humorous.
And I just posted something about Ree's husband in her comments today.

I meant to tell you that I was looking through some of your pics the other day and those twins are WAY too cute. I love their hair. You really have some fabulous pics of them. Two of my favs are of you sliding down the slide with one of them and then the one with one of them sitting on McD's shoulders. LOVE THEM!
I also meant to tell you that you are totally and completely a-freakin-dorable! I lurve your hair cut short. Gorgeous!

And I've now realized that if WT has ever been to my blog during my Q&A rounds, he thinks I'm a total nut.
I don't think your questions are crazy at all. They're fun. WT, welcome to the world of girl gossip and what we 'really' talk about when it's just the girls. :-)

I'm left feeling VERY dissatisfied after reading your post.

First, I'll never know if you WOULD have picked M.M. if you hadn't been all concerned about my reaction, which you shouldn't be, by the way. You sort of teased me with it, like, "There's always M.M. BUT I really like Ree..." but you never actually said, "I WOULD pick M.M. if not for the fact that I really like Ree." So now I'll never know. Unless you clarify. And I'm not a freak. I won't punch you. I'm the one plastering him all over the internet for all to see...

And for what it's worth, I think McDreamy is dreamy. He's handsome, yes, but he's so quiet and smoldering. (Is that an approrpriate way to describe one's banker?)

Okay, the next unfinished business. I'm asking. What happened? What pain did you cause? I know you won't tell us but I'm speaking for everyone here when I say that left me feeling VERY hungry for more. We won't tell...promise.

Can you tell it's been a quiet day here on the ranch? I need action!

Blogger Julie said...

Okay, it must be a really quiet day on the ranch because Ree, you have way too much time on your hands. :)

And since you called me on the carpet I WOULD have chosen M.M. But then if I had, I would have to look him in those gorgeous blue eyes and know that he knows. Of course, it isn't just his looks. M.M. is the strong, silent type and you know that is my type. Oh and if you want a steak - this is man you need around. They are awesome!

So now you know Ree! I WOULD marry your man! Now, come November I think we should get a couple of drinks and sit back and look at our guys after the Ranch Rodeo. :)

Well done, Julie!!

These kinda questions I could actually answer. My McD would help me choose, too. I KNOW how he feels about me, so I'm in a very secure place (in other words, I could pick out who HE'D choose if it wasn't me, too, with no worries).

You know what? One of my two life regrets is the same thing you wrote...hurting someone you love (and losing a friendship over it). It changed me. And I agree, forgiving yourself is so stinkin' hard! The difference is, I'm not sure I've been forgiven....

Love the way you look at life, Julie. You'll like the first post I wrote today (one of three b/c I was nuts--at least they're just pics), it's all about attitude :).
