Forum: Get up! We're late.......
Hello Cnetters,

What a wonderful start to a beautiful morning. Hope all are doing well. I figured, I would jump on here and tell you about my beginning of a new day. Yep, I was startled out of bed thinking I was going to be late for church and started to get ready.

I went around the house waking my family up, telling them to get ready. To my surprise, my daughter informed me that it was only 7:30 a.m. My heightened anxiety had a crash......

So, I am sitting here ready to begin my day and thinking that I had an opportunity to sleep in, and I failed miserably. I just have to laugh at this point. Opps, I did it again........

Anyways, I was just curious of how many of you have ever done the same thing?

Have you ever woke up startled and thought you were late?

How long does it take you to adjust to the time change?

Hope everyone has a great day!

Forum: Where did you go on your very first date?
Hello Paige,

Oh my, your really gonna make me dig into the back of my brain for this. I remember my first date was a frightful one. I was so nervous. My parents actually let me go out with a boy to the movies. It was a movie called, "Men in Tights".

Okay, I really just exposed my age!

Yes, it was SEVERAL years ago.

I was five minutes late getting home and my parents took five minutes off the next day I went on. Needless to say, the first date was nothing spectacular and I didn't go on another date with that boy again.

I guess my parents were too strict and it scared him away.

Hope you have a great day and good luck this week in the elections.

Forum: Who taught you how to drive?
Hello Elisa,

Your making me have to go back into ancient time and dust off the cobwebs.

I can remember my mom trying to teach me how to drive, but her patience wore thin and my dad had to take over and give me my lessons. I dreaded getting into a 15 passenger van and drive around town. I was embarrassed to say the least.

Learning how to drive and then adding a huge boat of a vehicle was a disaster. I cut corner's because I didn't turn wide enough and it was hard to look into the mirror and know when it was safe to get over. Lot's off fun time though. My dad probably had an indention on the passenger side floor board were there was an imaginary break.

Oh, the memories.....

Have a great day.

Forum: HELLO CNETTER'S.......
Hello Cnetters,

It seems like forever since I been on here. There are so many new faces and I can't wait to share some intellectual conversation. I had taken a break from college after receiving my Bachelor's degree and have just decided this semester that I wanted to pursue my Master's. A huge decision because I didn't want any more student debt than I already had.

Complete 360 degree change and hope I made the right decision. After much thought, I changed my mind in what I wanted to do in life and have found my place in teaching. My heart is teaching children with learning disabilities and after my observation yesterday, I indeed know what I want to be when I grow up.

My questions for all of you consist of a couple of questions.

First, I would love to get to know each of you and if you could tell me a bit about yourself, that would be awesome.

Second, have you ever envisioned yourself being in a certain profession in life and then making a complete change? For example, you wanted to be a Doctor, but then decided to be a Police Office.

Look forward to reading all your responses.

Forum: Taking the Week off......
Hello Cnetters,

I will not be competing in this weeks election due to my children being very sick. I must tend to their bedside while trying to get them better. I have been losing sleep being up and down with my little man. He has now got a rash that I believe is from the infection.

However, I will be voting daily and I will be posting when I can.

Have a great week and good luck to all.

Policy Maker,

I'm gonna try this, but I'm not the brightest crayon in the box when it comes to math and probability questions especially when the question is asked in a word problem.

My answer is 4.

If I happen to get the right answer, please give the vote to the next person who responds. I would like to pay it forward.


Subject: Re: Worst/Best Moment in High School

Forum: Worst/Best Moment in High School
The best moment for me in high school was when I received a command performance for my vocal competition. I had been working so hard to get in front of the judges and sing my heart out. After three years worth of attempts, I finally nailed it my senior year.

The worst moment in high school was being bullied because I didn't wear the expensive clothes and shoes. I wore what my parents could afford and the kids were just horrible. I was made fun of and laughed at. As the years went on, I ended up getting a job and was buying some of my own clothes.

To this day, I can not stand corduroy pants.........

Hello Pike,

Wow, sounds like a great gift for your birthday. You get to knock out two birds with one stone.

I'm sure your super excited to see your brother and your favorite group.

I have seen, Reba McEntire, Garth Brooks, Toby Keith, Carrie Underwood, Sammy Hagar, Willie Nelson, Brooks and Dunn, Luke Bryan, Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, Darius Rucker, Rascal Flatts, Trisha Yearwood, Steve Miller, Vince GIll, Ryan Teedder (One Republic), and Usher..

I absolutely love concerts.

I sure hope you have a great time for your birthday. Keep us posted on how it goes.

Forum: Insect invaders at home.

I am also not a big fan of spiders. I will pick the closets shoe within my reach a squash the hack out of it. Here in Oklahoma, we have spiders that seem to be on steroids or something.

Huge creepy crawlers.....

Crickets seem to be another problem that we have in OK. They are annoying and usually my cats will get to them and play with them while tearing apart their limbs.

The only bug that I have ever put back out the door was a praying mantis. I was told when I was younger by my father, that praying mantis were good luck and they eat other bugs. I don't know this to be a fact, but I have never killed one til this day.

Hope you have a great week.

Howdy Hcyork,

I have two dogs and two cats.

A German Shepherd named Nakita and a Dachshund named Lucy. Both dogs are kennel trained and are not allowed to sleep in my bed. They do however will cuddle up with me when I'm on the couch.

My cats on the other hand, Gracey and Autumn always find their way to the end of my bed.
