Slow board poll — The Bump

Slow board poll

This is getting ridiculous, so here's a random poll to jump-start some board action:

1. What, if any, names did you have picked out for your kids when you were little?

2. If you had to move somewhere else, where would you move to?

3. If you didn't have to go back to school or get any training but had to choose a different occupation, what would it be?

4. What is one thing you hope happens today?

5. What is one thing you hope doesn't happen today?

Re: Slow board poll

  • 1. What, if any, names did you have picked out for your kids when you were little?

    I would pick out names of musicians or t.v. characters, lol.

    2. If you had to move somewhere else, where would you move to?

    Anyplace warm. If Hawaii was cheaper, definitely there. 

    3. If you didn't have to go back to school or get any training but had to choose a different occupation, what would it be?

    A forensic detective! Well, only if real life detectives had lives like those on t.v. haha.

    4. What is one thing you hope happens today?

    I hope DH is finished tearing up our old carpet before I get home from work. He took today off to do it, so lets see if he stays on task.

    5. What is one thing you hope doesn't happen today?

    I hope I don't get stuck in one position. My back is killing me from tearing up baseboards yesterday, ugh. I pride myself on being "handy", so I started our re-flooring project before DH got home.

    2. I'd strongly consider Vermont, but if I was smart I'd choose someplace warmer.

    3. If money also wasn't a consideration, I'd love to be an event planner for a non-profit.

    4. Hope I have a baby. (ok, this was a self-serving question).

    5. I hope I don't have to admit any new patients to the unit today. I am mentally checked out of work (hence my desperation to time waste on here)

  • 1. Names for kids: I liked Shane and Addison for a boy (which, haha - Addison is totally a girl's name now).  For a girl, I liked the name Emma.

    2. Move - Nashville, TN.  Actually we plan to either move there in 5 or so years or back to Carmel/Zionsville.  I'd actually prefer Indiana, but Nashville is a close second for me.  I will say the weather in E.TN is amazing for those of you who listed it - it's 72 here today and beautiful!

    3. Hmm, I'd choose to be a stylist if I could be guaranteed a job.  Or a clothing designer - maybe for kids.

    4. I hope my new laptop gets here!

    5. I hope that Jackson doesn't fight bedtime tonight like he did last night.  It made me sad because he was so upset!
