This year, in honor of this holiday, typically celebrated on the last day of September, we thought it would be fun to answer some completely random questions. Lisa found a list of 100 questions and I asked my facebook followers to give me 10 random numbers. So here are my answers to the random questions selected for me by the internet!
#22: Would you ever consider living abroad?
I cannot think of any reason that I would ever be given the opportunity to live abroad, but if that somehow happened, I would definitely consider it for a short term. I love being near to my family and friends, but I think it can be so valuable to have different types of experiences, especially for the kids. My parents actually met abroad (in Afghanistan) and spent time overseas, both before and after marriage.

#36: Do you really know all the words to your National Anthem?
I sure as heck better! My high school choir teacher would be pretty mad at me if I didn't remember them! We sang it at various football games and community events while I was in high school and I've sung it in the crowd at many events since then. I even try to throw in a little alto harmony every once in a while.
#11: When did you last laugh?
My last belly laughing incident was Saturday night. The boys were in the bathtub playing and having a good time. One of them would say something and then they would both crack up. I was smiling just listening to all the fun they were having and then...
Ben: <softly> Bubby! I just peed in the bathtub!
Henry: <shouting> MOMMY! I'm ready to get out now!!
I had tears in my eyes by the time I got to the bathroom!!
#55: Have you ever had to wear a uniform to school?
I have never attended a school that required a uniform. However, in middle school and high school I was so cool that I wore jeans, a turtle neck, and a knit sweater every day in the cool weather and jean shorts and a t-shirt every day in the warmer months. It was pretty much my own personal uniform.
#83: What are your best characteristics?
I am a nice person. I am generous with my time and talents (I don't have much money to be generous with). I am friendly and tend to get along with most people.
#9: Did you dream last night?
We cleaned the garage out completely yesterday (Sunday), so as I write this on Monday, I can say with confidence that I did not dream last night. I was too exhausted. I did sleep really well, though!
#28: Type of music you dislike the most?
I like most kinds of music. Or rather, I'll listen to most types. I don't particularly enjoy hip hop or death metal, but that's mostly the lyrics and subject matter and not the actual musical qualities.
#16: What is the last film you saw?
We got a BOGO Redbox two weeks ago and so I got one movie for the kids (I honestly don't recall the name of it) and I got Mom's Night Out for me. Ken and I watched it and thought it was a pretty good movie.
#82: What are your best physical features?
Geez, I already had to say nice things about my personality, now I have to say nice things about my physical features?! I'm stumped! (And I'm not fishing for compliment!) Ken thinks I have a nice butt! :)
#10: Do you remember your dreams?
I think I usually remember my dreams. Some more vividly than others, obviously. I have a few recurring dreams that I remember better than the one hit wonders. I frequently have a dream about wandering through an empty house and looking in the closets only to discover an entrance to a hidden room or area of the house. Nothing especially interesting happens in that dream, but I wander endlessly through rooms.
Bonus question: This came in after I had already started writing, but I'll answer it anyway!
#13: What is on the walls of the room you are in?
I'm at work right now, so in front of me the upper half of the wall is mainly windows and the bottom half is cabinets and drawers. To my right, there is nothing but a white wall and some more cabinets. Behind me is a window and some shelves, as well as a display of Duke Dog through the ages from a JMU Homecoming project a few years ago. To my left, there is a window to the next room, but the blinds are always down so I can't see through it.
