Your result for Are You a Jackie or a Marilyn? Or Someone Else? Mad Men-era Female Icon Quiz...

You Are an Audrey!


You are an Audrey -- "I am at peace"

Audreys are receptive, good-natured, and supportive. They seek union with others and the world around them.

How to Get Along with Me

  • * If you want me to do something, how you ask is important. I especially don't like expectations or pressure

  • * I like to listen and to be of service, but don't take advantage of this

  • * Listen until I finish speaking, even though I meander a bit

  • * Give me time to finish things and make decisions. It's OK to nudge me gently and nonjudgmentally

  • * Ask me questions to help me get clear

  • * Tell me when you like how I look. I'm not averse to flattery

  • * Hug me, show physical affection. It opens me up to my feelings

  • * I like a good discussion but not a confrontation

  • * Let me know you like what I've done or said

  • * Laugh with me and share in my enjoyment of life

What I Like About Being an Audrey

  • * being nonjudgmental and accepting

  • * caring for and being concerned about others

  • * being able to relax and have a good time

  • * knowing that most people enjoy my company; I'm easy to be around

  • * my ability to see many different sides of an issue and to be a good mediator and facilitator

  • * my heightened awareness of sensations, aesthetics, and the here and now

  • * being able to go with the flow and feel one with the universe

What's Hard About Being an Audrey

  • * being judged and misunderstood for being placid and/or indecisive

  • * being critical of myself for lacking initiative and discipline

  • * being too sensitive to criticism; taking every raised eyebrow and twitch of the mouth personally

  • * being confused about what I really want

  • * caring too much about what others will think of me

  • * not being listened to or taken seriously

Audreys as Children Often

  • * feel ignored and that their wants, opinions, and feelings are unimportant

  • * tune out a lot, especially when others argue

  • * are "good" children: deny anger or keep it to themselves

Audreys as Parents

  • * are supportive, kind, and warm

  • * are sometimes overly permissive or nondirective

Drew's Field Trip- picture heavy

I went with Drew on Wednesday to Green Meadow Farms in Wisconsin. I can't believe he is going to be a first grader next school year. Here are some pictures.

Here he is riding a pony named Spike with me leading him. They asked for parent volunteers and I volunteered to do everything. lol

Here is Drew petting a sheep.oh they are so soft just wanted to ask when they shear them. lol

Here is Drew taking a picture of the goats as I take a picture of

Here I am helping Drew milk a cow. Now until Wednesday I had never milked a cow. So it was and experience for me too. And again here I again volunteered to help the kids milk the cow.

The most exciteing part of the trip was what I snuck home in my sweatshirt. And yes I paid for it just had to get it past the bus driver and make sure the kids didn't see it and get way too excited.

And he is a polydactyl cat but only on 3 of the four paws.

We are thinking we will name him Jack as in Black Jack but not sure...DH wants a manly name for him. But I like the animals to choose their names.

Here is Drew holding the cat.

Big decisions and yes I'm still Alive

Sorry everyone that I have been remiss in posting recently. I am now on 3 medications that seem to be working. But some test results came back and they are concerned about my thyroid. Which makes me tired a lot and my hair is falling out. So now I have to go to a Dr. and see what can be done. Also DH and I decided that Drew will be our only child...which makes me sad a little but it is something we talked about and I've prayed about.

And look what Drew did recently.
