Thanks for all the compassionate messages to my posting earlier…my blue moments come and go, I’ll try hard not to post all of them but thanks for understanding when I do!!
Tonight we are having twenty teenagers come over to celebrate Julia and her best friend Tor Olav’s 14th birthday. Yes, our house was chosen as the place to be for this “specatacular” event! I’m going to make the best of it..but while I wait for seven o’clock and everything to break loose I decided to interview my two gorgeous daughters just for the fun of it…they are sitting here and I have no idea what to blog about tonight, so they get to be my guinea pigs..hahaha
Just so you know who we are talking with- these are my beautiful, intelligent, and funny girls…two of my dearest and bestest friends ever…
Sarah on the left and Julia on the right…
Amy: Where do you see yourselves in five years..
Sarah: Vegas! No, just kidding I’m not going to be in Vegas…
Julia: I’ll have a job and a boyfriend!
Sarah: What kind of job Julia?
Julia: I dunno…I could think to be a dyrlege (vet) but you’re going to be that (points at Sarah).
Sarah: Mommy would probably love to have two vets in the family…she could save even more money on vet bills…
Sarah: Next question…
Amy: You guys haven’t completely answered the first question!
Sarah: Ok, I’ll be a star student at Texas A&M or in Oslo…maybe…probably be in America..probably be so bored with Norway by then I’ll want to be in America.
Amy: If you could get to do three things you’re not allowed to do right now, what would they be?
Sarah: I’ll have to go with B….hahahahaha….(just lots of laughing….)
Julia: I’d steal my parents car and go for a joyride….drink….get so drunk so I couldn’t remember anything and do crazy stuff….
Amy: please don’t say you’d have sex…my dad reads this blog…
Julia: (laughing) no no….(knocking herself on the head like she is thinking hard)
Sarah: you’re writing that Julia is hitting herself on the head like she is thinking aren’t you? (laughing hard now)
Sarah: I’d have a party where I could stay out all night long and then I’d drink to see how much I can drink before I’m drunk. Or get so drunk that I’d never want to drink again- hahahaha…teach myself a lesson…
Amy: You guys have only said two things…what’s the third thing?
Julia: I said it already!!! I’d kill my brother!!!!!
Sarah: I’d steal your credit cards to buy really hot clothing…
Julia: Oh yeah I’d love to do that too, but I’d buy a car also…
Amy: hmmmm…ok….What is the best part of me being your mother and the worst thing?
Both laugh very smart alec like…
Sarah: Oh I’ll say something deep….because you’re not only my mother but my best friend….(Bats her eyelashes at me)
Julia: You’re a great chef that’s one thing….
Sarah: the worst thing?? Can we just mention one?
Julia: Did you write that you’re the best cook?
Julia: You aren’t a strict parent…you are actually kinda cool….
Sarah: you’re fan freakin-tastic at giving us guilt …that is the worst thing..
Amy: What about daddy?
Both cackle again….
Thinking hard both of them….
Julia: I know the best part…you can tell Daddy something bad that you’ve done and he doesn’t yell…
Sarah: Sorry you can’t claim that one mom…
Julia: Yeah well, we need someone to yell….
Sarah: He always has an answer for everything you can learn stuff from him…
Sarah: the worst part is you can’t get contact with him unless you’re talking about an engine or something like that..
Julia: When we go on walks, he can’t walk slowly, he’s always stressed….
Stig walks in and Sarah says…and there is he….
Stig air lifting weights in front of us to show us his machoness..
Amy: ok, back to the questions….what makes a happy life?
Julia: Ice cream
Amy: what were your answers again? Julia you said Ice cream?
Julia: no no, not just ice cream…it’s gotta be….beer…no just kidding…(stig is heading out the door to the store and Julia loses concentration)
Amy: Julia!! What is your answer??
Julia: (running out the door) I said ICE CREAM!!!!!
And with that folks….I wish you lots of ice cream, (beer), and laughter!!!
Have a great night and we’ll see ya again real soon..
