Talent- organizing and rallying the troops. Put me on a committe and I die. Put me in charge and I'll get'er done for ya! I could organize an army, no problem!

Hubby and blogging: Hubby reads a post or two from my blog once a week or so-- I write too much for him to keep up with. And I read the best bits of other people's blogs to him. (He knows all about you, HOLYMAMA!) Yesterday-- get this-- he told me I was as funny as Finslippy. If that isn't love, I don't know what is....

Chocolate. Duh.

Eyes- hazel

Satisfaction--at least a 9.9. I am so blessed.

Mary, mom to many

1. Secret talent? Hmmmmmmm........I play a mean
paper and comb, LOL.
2. Does my spouse read my blog? Nope, no interest
in it whatsoever, but he does have opportunity.
3. Fruit or chocolate? Fruit almost every time.
The chocolate gene skipped over me.
4. Eye color? Hazel-green, blue and brown.

a lot more accomplished around the house, and I
could always be doing more for my Lord.

1. Offending people. But, I think it's hard to keep that one a secret.;) Actually it would have to be that I can pick up anything with my toes. Like the cat, laundry, whatever. I am monkey like.

2. Yes. And pouts when I don't read his.

3. Fruit. I hate chocolate. ...Stop the booing! Stop throwing tomatoes...oh, wait those are a fruit. Go ahead - I can take it.

4. Brown. Green blue? Show off.;)

Faith Said:

1. I can also tell M&M's apart. My fav. is red so I concentrate on that. I eat them one at a time.

Addie Said:

1. Well my daughter told me twice tonight that I have skills that could be used in the circus. :P They were 1. grabbing the car door and closing it with my foot because arms and hands were full and 2. feeding myself while feeding the baby. So I guess I got skillz!

2. Yes. He has his own blog but it's mostly serious-y man-y type stuff, so he enjoys reading my blog and the comments on it, more than his own. He even likes to go to the blogs I read to see if I commented. I'm sure he's lurked here. :)

3. Chocolate unless like Jeana said it's fruit dipped in chocolate!

4. brown

5. I'd say 8.5 There's definitely room for improvement but it's pretty dang great right now!

2. Yes, my hubby reads my blogs -- and several ones on my blogroll, too.

Theresa Said:

I. I know a little bit about cars - I know scary...I have changed brake pads, calipers, tires...I can use jumper cables correctly and I can start a stick shift by popping the clutch.

2. A couple of times a week. But, we also enjoy having the same blogs on our bloglines and discussing them (especially yours!)

3. Chocolate (as if)

4. "Baby blue" (I was feeling left out with all the fancy descriptions of the eyes!) LOL

2. My husband reads my blog only if I ask him to.
3. Chocolate. I am addicted.

5. I agree with the one that said "roller coaster," and currently I'm plummeting to the bottom at I'd say a 5. However, I am looking to rise to the top just any day. Ask me tomorrow, I might have a 10. Just learning to live on faith folks.

Christy Said:

1. Secret talent: I can make up songs with pretty much any words at any time. I'm constantly doing it with the kids. I'll get a phrase stuck in my head (i.e. "Henry's got a big poop") and I'll create an entire song around it.
2. My hubby sometimes reads my blog. He'll usually go a month without reading it & then catch up.
3. Chocolate. Milk chocolate.
4. Dark brown
5. I would say 7.5. If I lost about 60# and got my house/parenting in order, it would be a 10.

Geekwif Said:

1. I have a crazy good memory for numbers. I still remember my phone number from when I was 7 years old.

2. No. He could. He knows how to find it, but I think it's too much girl talk for him.

3. Without question, fruit! I am very picky about my fruit though. Chocolate? Forget it. I can't stand the stuff.

4. Green and yellow striped – seriously.

5. Today? 6 Ask me tomorrow though, and I'm sure it will go up to about an 8.

Heather Said:

1. I'm reading all of your talents and thinking, "Waahhh...I don't have any secret talents." But my husband says I can fix a great pot of pinto beans.

2. He says he likes to "keep up" with what I'm writing, but "you write too much for me to read it all." OK, so basically, he skims it.

3. I like both. But when I'm stressed, I definitely head for the M&Ms and Reeses.

4. Blue

5. Honestly? 8. It will move up to 9 once my toddler is potty-trained 100%. It's a 10 when we're on vacation.

Suzi Said:

1. Secret Talent: making up songs to original tunes, make them rhyme and fit into whatever tune I choose.
2. Husband reads blog?: He reads every so often...mostly to make sure that I am not saying "bad" things about him :-)
3. Chocolate or fruit?: Chocolate all the way...fruit is way overrated!
4. Color of eyes: Hazel...green and/or blue
5. Life satisfaction: 8...live with chronic pain, but life is still good and God is great!

Nancy Said:

1. Secret talent - I always seem to give gifts to people that are absolutely perfect. I don't know how I do it, but my daughter says I'm really good at buying gifts.

2. My husband knows I have a blog, but I don't think he's ever read it. Oh, maybe once.

3. Chocolate, but I love most fruit, too.

4. blue eyes

5. Life satisfaction? You mean not counting a moody teenager daughter and a non-potty trained son?? Actually, I have the best job and the best husband in the world. I get to stay home with my kids and still write books. I love my life - definitely a 9.
