Hey Brenda, you are too funny. I liked all your answers Im so plain.
Are you ready for the tour of bloggy homes? If we still do it?
Have a great evening. Oh are your kids back home yet? Im still praying for you.

Grafted Branch said...

Yay! What great answers. I read your humor coming through loud and clear.

Who knew #49 was going to be such good bait for such funny answers? Ahhhhh! Too much information! ;) JK.

Brenda said...

Kelli - I hear ya on the Fred Flintstone thing. The boxes usually fit better than the shoes.

Paulette? I'll have to post my pics early because I'm going this weekend to get my girls. Hopefully they won't resist. My 16-yr-old is adamant that she is NOT. COMING. BACK. I'll post an update on that situation in the next day or so. Thank you for praying. God is my only hope. Their dad is telling them they don't have to do anything they don't want to, and I'm not sure how to discuss it with him.

GB - I liked your answers, too, especially #49.

Diane said...

Brenda, good job with this one. I'm so tired I can't really think of anything funny to say, but your answers were hilarious. I liked #9 and #11. And #39? Cheesecake rules!! :-)

Carrie said...

Brenda-
That was absolutely hilarious! Thanks for the laughs--I needed a few right now since for some reason I CAN'T GO TO SLEEP and it's 4:00 AM!

I will be praying that things go well with the kiddos this week and I'll be watching for an update.

Blessed Beyond Measure said...

What do you eat that gives you this sense of humor????? Seriously - quick wit! Very fun. I might grab this to do next week, next week's not too late, right?

Brenda said...

Bev, next week's not too late at all.

Barb said...

Thanks for giving me something to do that DOES NOT REQUIRE A PHOTO!!! errggghhhh (blogger's free. blogger's free. blogger's a GOOD thing)

#49's attracting a lot of attention but #11 got me rolling around on the floor, migraine and all. Bungee jumping. no.way.

I hope it goes well this weekend. I know you dread the whole confrontation with the ex. But I'm praying your girls are smart enough to get past the lure of living with no rules and go home with you where they belong. xoxoxo

Barb said...

Okay. Mine's up, Brenda. But only because it didn't require a photo. errggghhhh.

Texas Gal said...

These are too funny! Now wonder we all get to know each other so well!! I am going to post mine tommorow.

Lauren said...

You're funny Brenda. Your answer to #2 caught me by surprise.

Loved all your answers.

janice said...

Melanie said...

Cute. When we lived in NC there was a children's store called "The Purple Cow!" Thanks for the comment about Arkansas and Georgia. I feel about Florida the way you do about Georgia. I am going to use your meme another day. Thanks for the idea.
