Questions and Answers.......



Last week I opened up my blog to questions that some of you may have about little ol' Dixie here and I waited for awhile, to see what kind of questions would be posed...I only had five takers....so, here are the questions that were asked and the answers to said questions.

I Beati asked...What were my 4th of July plans....that was answered earlier in the week.

Flat asked....If I could have an evening with a celebrity, both male and female, who would they be, where would we go and what would we do...

Hmmmm....that is a tough one....male, I would have to say Julian McMahon from Nip/Tuck....he is so totally my type and I just adore him on Nip/Tuck...he is such a wild nasty boy...he definitely makes my heart go pitter patter...

As far as where we would go, what we would do....Well, I would love for him to wine me and dine me, maybe take me to a famous Hollywood Club for a little dancing and cocktails, then back to his place for some hot monkey loving!!!!!!!!!

As far as female goes....I guess my celebrity girl crush....this may come as a surprise...but I really like Dita Von Teese....I love her "old school" look, how elegant she always is and come on, she used to be With Marilyn Manson...I am sure she really knows how to party....

Plus...just look at her..she is hot, hot, hot!!! As far as where we would go, what we would do...I really don't know..maybe some shopping, lunch...then back to her place to get ready for a girls night out clubbing....just go with the flow...whatever happens, happens.

Toni asked "How did I meet my Husband"....My hubby and I met when I was going through my nasty divorce from Ex number 2...I was an emotional basket case, because Ex Number 2 was an emotionally and physically abusive jerk, addicted to drugs, didn't work, etc..etc..(blog post for a later time)...anyway, My ex had downplayed me, degraded me, lowered my self esteem so bad, even going as far as to tell me, "Who would want you, with three kids, etc"...so, one night, home alone, feeling sorry for myself, I sat down in front of my computer, and signed up for Match.com..the first night I got like 36 responses, over a couple months, I met and dated a couple guys...one in particular turned out to be a real jerk, after leaving his place one weekend, I came home, logged on to match.com, with the intentions of deleting my profile, and there was this email (from Hubby)..again. I had never answered him, in fact had deleted two prior emails from him, but for some reason...this time...I answered him. He responded right away...said he was in my city, at that very moment for the sprint car races..we talked for an hour, agreed to meet the next day in the lounge at the Holiday Inn....I was about 10 minutes late to meet him, when I walked in I seen this really tall, dark haired, very handsome man on the pay phone in the lobby...I looked around, didn't see anyone else..we tentatively approached each other, I asked if he was Keith, he said yes...I said I am Donna...He was wearing Sunglasses, he slid them down on his nose, he looked me up, he looked me down...He said, you are gorgeous! I blushed...he took my hand, we went and sat down, and I started talking...he just listenend...I talked for almost an hour...He told me later he was instantly smitten with me.....anyway, we left and had lunch...I was so comfortable with him, he followed me back to my place, we spent another couple hours together, then he left to make the two hour drive back to Lafayette (I lived in Terre Haute at the time)....He called me as soon as he got home and said he would see me on Tuesday...he came down on that Tuesday and he never left...(He drove back and forth, from Lafayette, to Terre Haute for work, for 2 years, before I finally agreed to move to Lafayette with him). We have been together ever since, I could not have been happier. It so true in regards to that saying, "The third times the charm"...because he is truly the most wonderful man I could have ever met...I was truly blessed the day fate sent him to me.

Steph asked "What is your favorite blog post"....I am not sure...I guess the birthday posts for each of my kids.

Joey asked "How did you get through the toddler and preschool years with four boys?"
Well...that is a hard one to answer....Basically, just one day at a time....it wasn't too bad really. My boys were kind of spread out. There ages now are 18, 14, 8 and 5....so, I had time in between...with each one, it actually got a little easier...My first husband, the father of the two oldest would help me out...I struggled with the third one, because his dad, my second husband was the biggest loser, he didn't work but the first year of our marriage (we were together for five years)....it was tough. But as a Mom, you do what you have to do to make sure there needs are met and they are taken care of. The last one has been really enjoyable...because his Dad, Keith...my husband now, is an absolutely amazing father. He has pretty much taken care of him 100% since the day of his birth...this is his only child, so he has been involved from the get go..not letting me do a lot for him, he wants to do it all...and he does do a lot. They are all really good kids and there have been issues along the way, what with divorces, visitation, Aaron (8 year old) being diagnosed with ADD....but, I made it...just taking it one day at a time.

If any of you have any further questions, then Don't hesitate to ask...I am open to answer anything...so, ask away and I will post them at a later date.

Dixie...
