The 11th blogging grandmother to be featured in the Blogging Grandmothers Series 3 is Lori.
NAME OF YOUR BLOG: LOVE MY BIG HAPPY FAMILY
WHAT MAKES YOU SMILE: My eight precocious, beautiful grandchildren!
YOUR FAV SNACK: Fresh baked chocolate chip cookies.
WHAT QUOTE APPEALS TO YOU MORE THAN ANY OTHER: “We Burn Daylight” ~ William Shakespeare.
FUNNY OR SCARY MOVIE: Funny movies! I don’t like scary movies at all. My favorite movie is Pretty Woman. I love how the main character changes from a down and out woman with no self confidence into a classy, confident woman whose dreams are coming true.
POOL, LAKE, OCEAN, OR NONE: Love them all! Water fascinates and draws me! I love to swim in pools with my grandkids and hotel pools are always a highlight of family road trips. Some of my happiest memories are of times spent at lakes with my family. Of course, nothing compares to the power, the beauty, the mystery and the majesty of the ocean!!
DO YOU MONETIZE YOUR BLOG: I try! Time constraints get in my way and I don’t have the time to devote to it that I’d like. Hopefully the near future holds success for me in this area!
HOW DID YOU MEET YOUR SPOUSE OR PARTNER: I met my spouse at church over thirty years ago. Sadly he’s always struggled with some serious personal issues and our divorce was final in January. I’ve become very strong because of the experience and returned to work, realizing my lifelong dream of becoming a fourth grade teacher.
HOW LONG DO YOU PLAN ON BLOGGING: As long as I can! I love blogging!!
FAV TYPE OF MUSIC: I love almost all kinds of music but my favorite is country. Attending an outdoor country music concert on a warm summer night is one of my all time favorite things to do.
DOGS OR CATS: Both! But my cat Cali will be mad if I don’t say I love cats just a little bit more.
IF PAST LIVES ARE REAL, WHAT WAS YOURS: I was a teacher in a one room schoolhouse in the old west!
ARE YOU AFRAID TO BE ALONE IN YOUR HOUSE: No, not at all.
DO YOU HAVE ANY RECURRING DREAMS OR NIGHTMARES: Strangely, I dream about places and vividly remember the settings. In real life I don’t remember the details of the places I go anywhere near as well as I remember the places I visit in my dreams.
YOUR EARLIEST MEMORY: Standing in the driveway of my childhood home and receiving a small doll as a gift from my sister who was visiting from college. She is almost seventeen years older than I am.
DO YOU HAVE A BUCKET LIST? IF SO, WHAT ARE THE TOP 5 THINGS ON IT: 1. Work long enough to retire from teaching, 2. Visit Europe, Hawaii and Alaska, 3. Learn to play the piano, 4. Have my blog become fairly successful, 5. Find a partner to love and share life and my family with.
IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE YOU’D LIKE TO SAY: The best things in life are the people we love, the places we’ve been and the memories we’ve made along the way.
