Family is most important in your life.

Having a high focus on family indicates that you are a loving and nurturing person. You want to have a nice big family of your own, and you are very close with your siblings and parents.

I know.  I'm overdoing the quiz thing lately.  I suppose it's good that I have little news is good news, right?  I am quite ill this weekend.  I've been battling laryngitis since Wedsnesday and I now have a horrendous cough.  I went to work on Thursday unable to speak so that my afternoon little kinder wouldn't have to be without me on our field trip. (She stresses very easily and gets very upset when confronted with new sounds/places/people, etc.)  Her mom ended up going with us, so really I didn't have to be there, and now I may call in tomorrow.  My cough is really awful.  No one would want me there I'm sure of that.  All the kids were so concerned about me on Thursday.  It was really so sweet.  Hope I didn't give it to anyone.  The laryngitis seems to be making it's way around the staff.  I've been making lots of soups and drinking tea.  Cough meds are working somewhat....I'll be better soon.

With Christmas around the corner, the girls are bombarding me with the "I wants".  No matter how many days we go to church a year, the whole meaning of Christmas seems to fly right by their heads.  The DO take part in the pageant, which is a plus, I suppose.  They both still believe in Santa.  Yes, my oldest is 11.  I think she may just be going along with it so she can keep asking for all these expensive gifts....ipod, stereo, cell phone, more clothes!!

Speaking of it, she is now in the room, so I must change the subject...

M is asking for more American Girl things...that's Nana's department...thanks, mom. 

They both think it's cool to like music that I find quite inappropriate...sure, it has a cool beat.  Great, realistic issues in the lyrics...minus the sex.  Sorry, I have to draw the line.  Sex and the F word are just not  happening in this house for a few years, anyway.  At least not in THEIR rooms!!  When I was a teenager I'm quite sure I would be listening to Black Eyed Peas, Eminem, Snoop Dog, etc...and I actually DO like The Black Eyed Peas, with the exception of "My Humps".  That song makes me cringe to the point of shriveling.  Good beat.  Too much humps and lumps for my liking...yes, unbelievably, I have become a prude.  I looked up some of Eminem's lyrics online and I was appalled.  And young kids even my 8 year old's age are listening to this....this is a parent issue.  Free country, I suppose.  But why not just take them to an x rated movie?  Okay, NOT trying to step on any toes here....I love everything from Piano solos to hip hop, within reason. 

Babble, babble...trying to hurry.  Have to run. <<cough>>

Oh, I am sorry to hear you have laryngitis! I had that earlier in the year and it was difficult to teach without your voice!! When it started to come back it was gone by noon and my head hurt so bad from straining it. The best thing to do is take the day off and not talk.
It took awhile too, for me to get rid of my nasty cough. My doctor prescribed a cough medicine histussen? tussionex? something like that, but it had codeine in it and kicked my butt back into gear in a few days!

The music will probably always be an issue. I just learned recently that the Gwen Stefani song, Hollaback, girl, has some questionable lyrics too.
I can remember wanting Madonna's "Like a Virgin" album in 8th grade, but I couldn't even ask for it because of what the title implied! LOL

My daught is 20 and listens to the trashiest music.. she is not allowed to play it in my house or car.  She gave me her Christmas list and of course listed the CD's she wants... she knows how I feel about her music, and told me she listed CD's that I would approve of, but I don't have time to listen to them or check them out, so I am just buying her jewelry. I was actually happy when her car got broken into and her CD player and all her CD's were stolen..!!!

Hope you are recovered from your laryngitis.. Tis the season for colds, and sickness, and especially hard for you since you get exposed to soo much by the children.  Keep your Vit C and tea handy!!
