Hodgepodge Chili...(sounds like a recipe, eh?)

1. Do you like chili? Red or white? Beans or no beans? Spice or no spice? Toppings?
Yes, yes....YES!!! spice is often a bit rough to choke down but I'd try!

2. Red~Orange~Gold...your favorite fall color?
I love red trees...and I always think if the temperatures are just right I might get a red one in my yard...but alas it never happens.  There is one on the street over that is blindingly spectacularly red...I LOVE IT!

3. Who did you idolize when you were growing up?
That sort of thing was really encouraged in my posters, etc.  I guess if I had to pick a person...probably my Dad...I'm still a Daddy's girl.

4. When was the last time you did something 'arts and craftsy'? Share please.
I have small we are often playing playdoh, painting pictures or some such thing.  I recently moved and reorganized my craft cabinets...and sewing stuffs.  Now that I know where everything is...I've sparked some creative thoughts and plans.

5. What's a place that makes you really nervous?
I'm not naturally a nervous this took some thought.  I think I'm most uptight and nervous in downtown, inner city traffic...all those one ways, etc.  YIKES!

6. Horse back riding...yay or nay (neigh?)
I think most girls go through a horse loving phase.  I sure did...I took riding lessons and rode whenever I could.  I still enjoy having the skill.

7. What is your favorite cliche?
Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home.

I think I use these a lot.  Yesterday I used "apples to apples" and "a thing of beauty is a joy forever"...and that was only one blog's worth.

8. Insert your own random thought here.
I think I'm doomed to never sleep a full night through again.  And please don't say I have to wait until they go to college...cuz that's just not nice.  My kid's are taking turns not sleeping...(I think Lubby has an ear infection or something...He's going to the Dr.)...The dog got sick and was up hurling and whining in the night.  Of course, that same night....neither kid got up.  Argh!  And then...I just don't sleep well with my Loverbrains.  *Sigh*  I'm weird without sleep.  I admit it.

This may depress you but-I think parents have a small window of getting enough sleep. It happens in those elementary years, the later ones normally...before that babies/toddlers are up for a variety of reasons. Once they hit the teen/college years they're out and about and driving. Kids driving is not sleep inducing! And once you're thru that stage your hormones go nuts and interfere with your sleep patterns. Maybe grades 2-5? : )

I'm sorry to say that even with an empty nest, there are nights when I don't sleep well.

Though red isn't one of my favorite colors generally, I love seeing a brilliantly red tree.

I've been wanting to organize my craft things. I keep not getting to it.

I don't like driving in downtown inner city areas, either with usually narrow roads and one way streets. One town where we used to live had a really nice downtown to walk through once you found a place to park.
