Let it Rayne

I got this from Rayne:

tag your it...please re~post


 

1. Are you a child of the 70s, 80s, or 90s?

I was born in 1961..child of the 70's


2. Where were you born?

Illinois

3. What kind of home did you grow up in?

I grew up in a cute little neighborhood on the south side of San Antonio.  All the neighbors were close and watched out for each others children....one reason I was always caught if I even thought about doing something wrong. It was a three bedroom house with two bathrooms.  One for the parents and one for us girls. I shared a room my whole childhood.  Mostly with my little sister Christi.


4. Did you enjoy your childhood?

Yes!!  My parents were the coolest.  They wet boundarys for us and always made the holidays special. We didn't have too much or too little, just enough.

5. When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

I wanted to be a missionary who worked in the circus and be one of those flying trapeze artists. I later as a teen wanted to be a writer or a child psychologist. I am a cashier now so I guess I have all these jobs combined in one.


6. What do you want to be now?

a child psychologist still

7. What was your first best friend's name?

Susan Martin

8. Is she still your friend?

Yes and she even lives in the same small town I do now.  I caught up with her on April 1st this year.  Her two boys wait by the phone each year for my prank. 
9. Can you name all the schools you ever attended?

yes not sure of the preschool one though

Methodist church San Antonio

Bellaire Elementary San Antonio

Harlandale Middle School- sixth grade only

Terrell Wells Middle School -7th and 8th grade

McCollum High School San Antonio
10. Were you closer to your mom or dad as a kid?

I loved them equally the same.  I must say at this point that my parents were both loving and kind.  I never once saw my parents fight or have words.


11. What was the first record, tape or CD you remember buying?

Cher Half Breed Donnie Osmond and David Cassidy  I also liked Barry Manilow and David Meese and Amy Grant

12. best age to be a parent

i think in your 20's you have enough energy and are able to still enjoy your adult hood when the kids are grown up
13. Are you scared of anything?

working in the gas station at work....yes they are pressuring me to learn again....

14. What was your favorite class in elementary school?

2nd grade.  Spelling

15. Did you buy school lunch or bring your own?

i would bring it in elem and in middle i would buy it I ate pizza and star crunch almost every day for an entire year 

16. Broken any bones or had any freaky accidents as a kid?

only as an adult

17. Were you a mean kid?

no.  I was the kid who befriended those picked on by bullies when the bullys weren't picking on me. 

18. Favorite board game of all time?

monopoly

19. Did you play house or pretend to be a super hero?

we played house, school, and army

20. Seriously, are you still just a kid at heart?

I don't want to ever grow up. I am a Toys R Us kid. I love children and I love being a kid.

love the cat eye glasses. Great pics. I wish my durn scanner would work.  I think I scanned maybe 3 pictures with it. It's one of those printer, copier, scanner, faxes. I think we've reinstalled the software a dozen times. The printer doesn't work. NONE of it does. GRRRRR. Brand new and never worked right. of course the warranty ran out before I was convinced it would never work. So I'm stuck with it. I have a million photots that I would like to get scanned.  
Have a good Easter. Hugs, Barb

Great answers, Barbara.  I have read most of your entries now, but don't have time to comment on each one.  Just know I came by to catch up.  Sorry I have been away so long.  Life can be so busy and throw us so many curves, eh?

Hugs and prayers,
