Assignment given by MamaKat

The Prompts:
1.) Describe your latest obsession.
2.) Ask a loved one to use 6 descriptive words to describe you and report your findings. How well do they know you?
3.) Who was your first bloggy friend? How did you find each other? Do you still correspond?
4.) Tell us about your pet! If you have a weird infatuation with your dog or cat we want to hear about it (or if they just plain drive you crazy)...but please don't compare them to children. It's just not the same.
It would be easy for me to do all of these because it is hard for me to shut up when writing. Odd because I am a very quiet, shy person in real life. Just ask my hubby.
I did. I asked him to describe me in 6 words and he complied. Good husband.
I thought about asking my children but I was afraid of what they would say considering I hear "I hate you" and "You're mean" about 10 times a day and I couldnt promise that I would not change their answers just to make myself look like a saint.
So here are my hubby's words and I promise that I did not pay him, promise him any favours or bribe him. Really.
1. Selfless
2. Beautiful
3. Caring

4. Shy
5. Nurturing
6. Stubborn as Hell
Gosh, he knows me so well. He has known me since 1982....grade 3.......I was the new kid in class.........so I cannot really argue with his "findings".
Except the last one.
My latest obsession.
This is a tough one because I have so many. Once I like something, I cannot get enough of it.
Magazines. A.Real.Problem in the eyes of my husband although I catch him reading them quite often. The way I think of it is magazines are my drug of choice. I don't drink. I don't smoke. I read trashy gossip magazines about rich celebrities. Who am I hurting???
Chocolate. A.Real.Problem in my eyes because my butt isnt getting any smaller. I love it and would trade a gossip magazine for a chocolate bar anyday. Even better......reading a gossip magazine while eating chocolate. There is nothing better.
Blistex. There is one in my bathroom, one in my purse, one in my kitchen, one in my vehicle and one in my makeup bag. Enough said.
Lucky Charms cereal. A new obsession thanks to middle child. He HAD to have them when we went to the grocery store the other day and only wanted to eat the marshmallows. I thought I would eat them the way they are meant to be eaten so he would realize they are yummy and do the same. I have had them every day since. I had them for breakfast this morning and will probably have them for lunch. No, I am not 5.....I am almost 34 thank you very much........
Nibs. You know...the licorice. Not the twisty kind. The solid rope kind. The softer the better.
There seems to be a food theme going here........

You must have written this right before lunch. And no, no, no to soft licorice.

If it makes you feel better I hear "I hate you" and "I wish you were dead" from my middle son. I feel your pain. That is probably why I didn't ask my kids, especially the middle one.

I couldn't get my husband to give me any descriptive words........:) I like the stubborn one!

Don't feel bad, I have had Lucky Charms for breakfast the past several mornings and I love 'em. The 2 year-old just eats the marshmallows so the dogs end up with the rest.

Wait until the teenage years - then you get to hear the real good ones.

At least your hubby was responsive.
