Widney Wednesday - You Asked. I'm Answering, Pt 1

Some great questions came in. 
If you want to ask a question, you can go HERE and post.

This was fun!! I hope more questions are posted...

Do you think the Widneys will ever move to Canada? 
No. We seriously contemplated it when J was laid off in January. But jobs in J's field are more readily available this side of the border. And I find the cost of living so high in Canada. We were spoiled with such a ridiculously low cost of living in Tulsa. It's higher in Chicago, but I'm always blown away when I visit my family.

What do you think Motor Mouth and Mini Me will be when they grow up?
Mini Me loves animals and she is smart. I would not be surprised if she were a vet. Right now, she would like to be a dinosaur.
Motor Mouth, I'm not so sure anymore. He really loves flying and wanted to be a pilot. A Blue Angels pilot. I suspect he will obtain his pilot's license but I'm not sure if that will be his profession. I could easily see Motor Mouth being an architect, based upon his drawing and lego sculpting skills. He's pretty good. Right now, he wants to be a night guard at the museum, thanks to the movie, Night at the Museum.
What made you fall in love with J (any particular event/moment)?
We were best friends in January 1995, his cousin got me really upset and I was crying. J reached up and wiped the snot away with his hand. That was it for me. But I didn't realize it for several years.

What is your worst habit?
Procrastinating. It is really bad these days. I get a lot accomplished, but there are some key things I put off, that I really should not.

What is your greatest talent?
Normally, I would say I'm resourceful. But I don't feel that way right now.
Have you ever thought about doing one of those "get paid to blog" things?
Yes. I signed up for one, but I would have had to move EVERYTHING over there, or start blogging there instead of here. That would make it my 3rd site in a year. I think I would lose readership, as I lost some with my last change to Blogger.

More importantly though, I don't have enough traffic to actually make money with advertising or traffic. On average, I get about 35-50 people/day viewing my site. It jumps to about 150 on the days when I link back from WhittakerWoman, who gets over 1,000/day. Her husband, RagamuffinSoul, gets over 4,000/day.

How/why did you start blogging?
When Motor Mouth was born, we had a website with a bunch of his pictures for family/friends to view. J created it. When Mini Me was born, the kids' godmother asked - demanded? - if I have a site for Mini Me. So, I found Multiply. This year, just before we moved, I found Blogger. I blogged every day for our move and now I do it for therapy.

What is your love story?
This response has been written and is schedule to post tomorrow morning, so please be sure to check back.

Cost of living is truly less here? Wow... I wouldn't have guessed that. But then when I'm in Canada I'm using the U.S. dollar... which helps or DID help, not sure it matters anymore.
