Yes, it’s time again for the great Answer Me This linkup courtesy of Catholic All Year.
1. How long have you lived in your current home?
It will be four years in September. Our house burned down on September 5, 2011. We were homeless for not quite three weeks, with Emily at college, the big boys living with school friends, the dog with my one sister and the rest of us with the other sister. On September 24, we were able to fill up an empty rental house with donations given by family and friends–an enormous moving van full. We are still here.
2. How do you find out about news and current events?
Generally I’ll see something pop up on Facebook and then I’ll check Twitter to find out what is really going on. I find the newspaper to be a joke, breathlessly announcing things I’ve known about for two days.
I make it a point to look at articles about current events, particularly controversial ones, from a number of different sites to make sure I am getting real news and not some slanted thing someone made up to support an agenda.
3. Would you be able to make change for a twenty right now? For a dollar?
I can practically never make change for a twenty. I can make change for a dollar at the moment because no one has stolen my change recently–but most of would be pennies.
4. What’s the craziest food you’ve ever eaten?
I’m not big on eating crazy food. And I guess what’s crazy is a matter of perspective anyway, right? I’ve tasted sushi (not a fan), alligator (tastes like chicken), squid (rubbery). I’m a big fan of Korean food, particularly kimchi (fermented cabbage). Is that crazy?
5. Which of the commonly removed parts have you had removed? (tonsils, wisdom teeth, appendix, etc.)
I was born without wisdom teeth (but have still managed to acquire wisdom, I assure you). My surgical removals have included my gall bladder (and good riddance to it) and my first three children.
6. What’s your favorite sport to watch on TV?
The only sport I watch is football, and for the most part I only watch the UT Volunteers. Occasionally if my son or my husband has another game on I might sit down and watch if it looks like a good game.

I am so sorry that your house burned down. That must have been difficult.
Hahaha “and my first three children”, love that, didn’t even think about c-sections as having something removed but it kind of is!
