This blog is my place to vent and share resources with other parents of children of trauma. I try to be open and honest about my feelings in order to help others know they are not alone. Therapeutic parenting of adopted teenagers with RAD and other severe mental illnesses and issues (plus "neurotypical" teens) , is not easy, and there are time when I say what I feel... at the moment. We're all human!

5 Question Friday

Yes, I know it's Tuesday, but I didn't read this blog until today.

Today I am playing 5 question Friday. It is a cute little meme hosted by Mama M. Go to her blog to see who else is answering questions..Below are today's questions:

1. What's your favorite line from a movie?

I have several, guess which movies they're from and who says them.
"I'm not bad, I'm just drawn that way."
"It's good to want things." (The kids HATE this one, because I use it so much.)
"I can fix that," or "As you wish." (same idea, different movies)
And lately, because I spent 3 hours helping move 6,000 pumpkins (weighing over 45,000lbs total) out of a semi this weekend,

"Gently... ("At a time like this, that's all you can think to say. Gently?")gentleee!"

2. What "group" did you belong to in high school? Goths, jocks, preps, drama, nerds?

I moved a lot so didn't belong to a click. If I did, I guess it would have been the misfits. We didn't belong to any clubs or organizations, and had no particular hobbies. We weren't ugly or pretty/ handsome. We were smart, but not too smart. We weren't rich, nor were we poor. We didn't do drugs, but we did drink occasionally and some of us smoked (in TX there wasn't a lot else to do). We weren't goody two shoes, but we weren't bad kids either. When I went to my 20 year high school reunion, I wasn't surprised that no one knew who I was. At graduation I was standing in the line waiting to get my diploma with the 3500+ other graduating seniors, and a couple of people actually said they didn't know I was a senior.

3. If you had $1000 just for yourself what would you spend it on?

Just for myself?! Maybe some clothes that fit from a local thrift store. Pay for my prescriptions for my anti-depressant that's sitting at the pharmacy. Air conditioning for the Blazer. Probably used office furniture for the company. A trip to the Half-Price Book store to look at their clearance section. Anything left over would go toward groceries.

4. What was your favorite childhood cartoon?

Wow this brought back some memories. We watched mostly PBS so I loved Sesame street which had Spiderman cartoons. I still know all the words to the School House Rock cartoons. As I got older Smurfs, Fat Albert, Scooby Doo...

5. What kind of sleeper are you?

I'm a total insomniac/ night owl! I usually go to bed at 1-2am. Once there though I sleep like the dead until Hubby wakes me up. I'm a right side sleeper, always.
