Is it a sex blog? A mommy blog? A bitch & moan blog? Um, . . . yeah. This is my place to be totally honest. In my real life, I feel like I'm always lying to somebody about something. Here, I am totally honest. Brutally so. However, no matter what bad things I say about my kids, I adore them and would never ever really, say, sell them on Ebay. The husband, often referred to as Spousehole, is another story. Oh yeah - if you are under 18 (or if you are my husband), please leave now.

TMI Tuesday



1. What do you consider as the greatest thing you've ever done for/ to yourself?

Getting a college education (and beyond). I may not be using it to earn money right now, but having that education is still a precious part of my life.

2. What/ Which part of your life you think you could have done better and why?

Almost everything! If I could do it over, I would have gotten treatment for my depression much, much earlier, I would have chosen a different professional path, and I would avoid some of the mistakes I've made in my marriage.

3. Do you have that one person whom you consider to be the wind beneath your wings?

It's two people for me - my kids. Everything I do is because of and for them. They lift me, give me a reason to keep going.

4. Tell us about your longest relationship.

Do you read this blog? That would be my marriage to Spousehole. We've been together more than 10 years and will have been married 9 years in May.

5. In a relationship, when do you get to that point of enough is enough?

Again, do you read this blog?

Bonus (as in optional):What is that one intimate moment with someone you miss so much and what are you willing to risk to have another moment of it. ;)

I miss looking into the eyes of someone I love and who loves me. That intimate connection when you really love each other and can see and feel it without either saying a word. I'm willing to give up my marriage to have that again.
You thought my answer would be something sexual, didn't you?

I'm so with you with your bonus answer! I'm quite new to your blog...so now I have to dig your archives for the other info! ;)

Happy TMI T!

Awww no, I didn't think it would be actually. You always seem soft centred to me.

Good answers and an interesting quiz. Children are important but don't live your life for/through them - find something for yourself too.

#1 - I am right there with you. My two degrees, and the time spent getting them, and maybe even growing my mind a bit in the process, is just precious to me. . . I still have occasional fantasies about going back for another one, but something about keeping my kids fed, and 25 years left on a 30-yr mortgage, keeps deferring that. . .

#3 - One for each wing, eh?

D said...

good answers to some tough questions.

Biscuit said...

I can so relate to the first part of #2. My life would have been so different if I had been treated correctly for bipolar disorder. Good lord, the wasted years.

ATLLG said...

You know I TOTALLY forgot about my blog in my answers. It is a way for me to "get some things out" that otherwise I would hold inside.

Good Answers....

Sue said...

Bunny, your bonus question answer is spot on! I'd give up everything except my kids to have that again.

The Troll said...

I wasn't expecting something sexual. Thoughtful questions, thoughtful answers. Happy TMI.

Pluff said...

Great answers! Happy TMI!

Ron Burgundy said...

Nice answers. I thought about my kids for three - and although I love them to death - I figured if it wasn't for the Mrs. there would be no kids. So she won in a close one.

Madame X said...

Your bonus answer... that's it! I completely know what you mean. I did give up my marriage for that feeling. Yes, there are days that I wonder how I could have done that but then the ex does/says something that reminds why I gave up my life with him. Go figure... they never learn!

Vixen said...

Love your answers chickie.... Bonus was touching.

*hugs* HappyTMI!

The Silent Male said...

I am totally with you about the education, that is a really big deal for me to. I didn't think about the other questions much.

Helena said...

Your bonus is what I am missing in mine, and I know I could have it if I just worked up the courage to go. I gotta check out your site more your answers made me laugh!

Big Kahuna said...

I admit I was laughing when reading your answers of "Do you read this blog?"

Tequila Girl said...

Great answers!

Happy TMI!

Sheen V said...

I like your bonus answer!

for a different kind of girl said...

Your first answer is a chord with me, too, especially as I'm now telling my oldest, who is suddenly displaying an "I hate school" attitude - that it's more important than he can possibly realize it now. Even though I, too, am not using mine, nor know if I'll go back to that area at some point, I knew I was good at it because of what I learned.

Amorous Chick said...

Dammit. I had a long comment responding to quite a bit because some of your answers struck some chords with me. I hit submit and my internet connection went out so I lost it. *Sigh* Anyway... great answers, I love your bonus despite that it saddens me a little and happy late tmi!

I Smile 2 Much said...
