Cindy, over Another Step Forward tagged me!

She sent me a list of questions to answer. That was 2/22/11 and I am just now getting ready to do it. I'm slow, but sure. I was just going to give her my answers, but decided to do it on my blog for her. She took time and asked me so I feel a need to answer her back correctly - respect. I'm really not all that interesting, but here are my answers - yawn - lol.

Hi Sandie! Loved reading your answers. Hope your day today is doubly blessed. Susan

Shanae Branham said...

Thank you Sandie for such a wonderful honor! Getting to know you has blessed my life. I would also only eat chocolate if I only had six months. I am also trying to forgive everyone. It's an internal journey that asks me to take steps everyday...
God Bless,
Shanae

Good answers there Chatty, and I love that final picture of the old lady puckering up!! LOL!!

Sharon Kirby said...

Oh man, I loved this list! Who knew you were so interesting? (Wait - that didn't sound right at all!)

So - I really did enjoy learning a little more about you. For one thing, I also love reading murder/suspense. I also think my ideal hours are midnight to 9 AM. You know how I feel about Marty. Also fear the process of dying.

And if you ever want a traveling buddy when you head to Europe - sign me up!!

Thanks for sharing - this was really fun!

xoxo

Hey Sandie...you crack me up...you really do. love these answers....and that pic of you at the end throwing a kiss....too cute.

tattytiara said...

Yeah, I definitely don't see the choice between loving someone or being loved by someone. It's gotta go both ways, no compromise! And the beauty of love, of course, is that it can and does.

Jane said...

I loved your post,as usual you made me smile! I liked the one about you being the first person your hubby hired. Blessings jane

Sue @ Not the Good Scissors! said...

Great minds indeed. LOL! You answered just about the way I would have answered except for the chocolate part. Maybe its because I am hungry right now but I could eat homemade mac and cheese for the next 6 months. Go figure!

That corgi :) said...

I like to read these because we always find out more about people. Why Kate? I'm with you about the chocolate too! When I was doing a weight loss clinic one time (slow learner, I managed to gain back the weight several times, LOL), I was doing the protein shake routine and I got the chocolate ones; they were so good that I didn't mind drinking them four times a day instead of eating (ate one meal a day and four protein shakes)

I agree about hating injustice; God does too

Debbie said...

Sandie, these are interesting. I love what you said about finding people who work hard with the billion dollars one. That's something I'd like to do too.

I got a grin about how you met your husband. So... he hired you and has been working for you ever since. Right?

Ha!

Have a great day today.

Granny Annie said...

Wow, that was a lot to answer. You did a good job Kate:) I would change my name to Honey.

Mevely317 said...

Oops, I'm late!

Say, how do you feel about us calling you "Chatty Kate"?
I'd love to hear more someday re. first meeting your hubby!

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

OMG, Sandie! I loved reading your answers and am honored that you passed this on to me. Please give me a few days to get 'er done though! I did notice that some of answers are the same. Thank you again! Hugs ~ Tanna
