Hump Day Q&A…


There are some changes to the We Want To Know Wednesday… A new Host!! Queso!! 

And of course, Mamarazzi… the drill is the same so link-up!


1} What would you do with an extra $1000 a month?

This actually happened… We paid the house off and Roy dropped his State health insurance when he went to work for the City. So, there is extra money each month… I know!!! Right???

And what did we do with it???

Nothin’. I know!! Right???

It just sat there. And you know what was super cool… it grew!!

I know!!!!!! Right????

Honestly I have no idea how much money is in the bank. I truly don’t. But I am getting’ new carpet and we are takin’ a cruise!!

Don’t hate me becuz I’m debt free.

{2} What category of blogger do you think you best fall under?

I am a life blogger. I will tell you stories of my life with Roy… and whatever else may pop into my head.

{3} What is your go to solution when you are having a bad hair day?

A hat and dark shades! And I had Hellmart security tailin’ me!! Seriously!! They stopped me at the door and checked my receipt!! All becuz I had a bad hair day!!

{4} If you were a Crayon, what color would you be?


{5} They say love is in the little things. What is a little thing someone does to show you love?

For years, Roy would carry his cell phone in his hand so he never missed my call while we were out shoppin’.

Let me ‘splain…

Once many years ago, durin’ the Dark Years, Roy and I were at Hellmart. He went his way and I went mine. After a few minutes, I called him to ask him if he needed shavin’ cream… no answer. HUH?

I tried again. And again it just rang and rang and went to voicemail. So I went to that horrible section of the store known as SPORTING’ GOODS… totally section foreign to me. And Roy wasn’t there, all the while I’m still callin’ him. I walked on over to AUTOMOTIVE… not my area and Roy wasn’t there either!!

He’s not answerin’ his phone and he’s not where he should be!! I abandon my cart and start searchin’ the store! All the while still callin’ him… no answer.

After a quick scan of the store… and you know how big HellMart is… it hit me like a ton of bricks!!!!


Total panic set in… and I went out to the parkin’ lot to see if the truck was gone!! And as I reached the truck, he finally answered his phone!!

He could tell by the panic in my voice and the hyperventilatin’ that I was totally freaked out!! It wasn’t 2 shakes of a dead lamb’s tail that Roy Dewayne Hightower was standin’ right there with his arms wrapped around me.

I had a full on panic attack all becuz he’s nearly deaf. And too, becuz I was a neurotic head case durin’ the Dark Years.

From that day and until the invention of downloadable LOUD ringtones, he carried his cell in his hand so that he NEVER missed my call EVER again.

The Dark Years were bad. And that’s all I got to say about that.

My husband never answers my calls. I know he can hear that damn thing....he is just too busy doing other things.

Drives me bananas!!

Lucy said...

Red, hmmm, now that is interesting! Debt free, my husband would love that he tries, I seem to be his problem LOL but he still winks at me and it is all good! It really is the little things that make it work.

VandyJ said...

My hubby would love to be debt free--or mostly debt free--but big things keep breaking. You gotta pay for somehow.

Jill said... be debt free...

I gotta admit, I giggled at the story about Hellmart security tailing you all because of a bad hair day...

allstarme said...

My husband just never keeps his pone on him, especially when he's in the house so it's always on the other end of said house. It drives me crazy but I understand, I guess.

Marisa said...

Ugh, I can't wait to be debt-free, we're getting so close. So many years of getting sick with no insurance. Just got my school loan paid off. If feels good to get it paid off. Wooo!

Lilith MacRoberts said...

McMallMart can give anyone a panic attack, especially if one gets abandoned there. Good thing you found him!

Impulsive Addict said...

YOU ARE A MESS and you make me laugh!

Men are horrible about answering their phones. Mike stays on silent ALL THE TIME. I just hope he feels his leg vibrate when I need him to answer.

I'm a little jealous that you don't have debt. Ok, I'm a LOT jealous but whatever.

Bridget said...

My husband rarely answers his phone...i'm wondering whyyyyy we pay for one for him. Makes me insane.

Red is my fav color, too!

Carol said...

RED is also my fav. color!! we rock!!!
sooo hating you right now on your debt free ass!!! :)

Megan Harmeyer said...

You're debt free? I'm totally jealous. That is awesome.

I hate being separated in WM - it's like being lost in some weird foreign country!

I'm a red, too. Just red.

Hats are essential for bad hair days! Funny that the person at WM tailed you.

Colleen said...

I would have lost it in Hellmart, too!

It drives me batty when MacGyver doesn't answer his phone. My brain always goes to bad places.

Alicia said...

oh wow!! that's an intense story! but man, what a good hubs to never miss a call again. that's huge :) loved your answers!

Megan said...

so, um, you owed me some money right? Right?!?!? JK. I actually have no debt and love it as well. I just wish we had extra money laying around!

sarajo said...

So, I'm new. Dark Years? Sounds like our dark month. Every february bad stuff happens. Not a happy month.

That's an awesome feeling being debt free. We got rid of our credit cards two years ago. It's been great!

Crazymamaof6 said...

Omg that story. I know nothing of the dark years. But wow. I'm jealous he always answers your calls. Nothing ticks me off more than the hubs not answering my calls.

Rachel said...

Newish reader here so I don't know about the "dark years" you speak of but I understand the feelings of abandonment. I freak out in stores when separated sometimes too, don't like the feeling at all. Anxiety stinks no matter why you have it!

lynn said...

Good for you for being debt free! So jealous. We try but things keep popping up. I'm not familiar with the dark years either, but wow what a story. I hope all is good for you now!

Holly Ann said...

I think it is absolutely wonderful that you are debt free!! Enjoy that extra money - you earned it! :)

That is really sweet to reassure you like that. Show us pics of the carpet when you install it!

Date Girl said...

Aww that panic story made me feel for ya. I've been in that dark place and it's no picnic. Glad you're out!!

Wow debt free? That is amazing! I don't hate you, I aspire to be like you!

Lourie said...

I crank my phone up to the loudest. I choose the noisiest most obnoxious ring and still miss calls! I am not deaf, but have age appropriate hearing loss! It's frustrating for all involved. *sigh*
