Why?

     What was the worst day of your life? Not going to go there. 
    Why? It's not something I want to put on a public message board. I think some of you might know what it is or what it has to do with. You can message me if you really want to know.

    The day I was born? Hey, that's when it all began!

    What was the worst day of your life?
    I have absolutely no idea. My life is definitely not perfect, but I really can't think of anything so horrible that has happened to me to make it the "worst day".

    What was the best day of your life?
    Honestly...my wedding day. :)

    What was the worst day of your life? Why?
    Maybe not THE worst, but one of the worst was when I was about 14 and I was on a student exchange trip. All the other kids from my school refused to sit with me on the bus and HID from me at the hotel later that evening. I was a big nerd and they were too cool to hang out with me. It was THE SUCK.

    Worst Day: Saying goodbye to FI when he left for Asia for 6 months.
    Best Day: The day FI and I were reunited after him being gone for 6 months. Or maybe the day I graduated from undergrad. Hard to pick just one!
    Pony: It'd be blue and I'd name him Bubbles.

    The day FI proposed.  I can't ever remember being that happy.  I'm sort of a pessimistic person...and I smiled from ear to ear that day.  I was just SO *happy*.  

    What was the worst day of your life? Why? 

    Wow...I included a tough question, huh?  June 25, 1999.  I was 11.  It's also not something I like talking about much, but if you're just itching to know, you can PM me.

    See, I haz a mysterious side.

    Oh, and if you could have a pony...what color would it be and what would you name it?

    I don't discriminate.  I love all colors of pony.  I think I'd name him Pony.

    What was the best day of your life?
    I'd say graduating from college was one of my best days.  I can just remember the awesome feeling that I had when I finally walked across that stage and afterwards when I saw people there that I didn't expect to come out and support me.

    What was the worst day of your life? Why?
    I don't know if I can pick just one.  There have been a lot of shiity days, but nothing sticks out more than anything else. Being with my ex on days that he would get drunk and flip out on me are probably at the top of the list.

    Oh, and if you could have a pony...what color would it be and what would you name it?

    Best: I never really thought about it. I would say I've had a lot of really good days, but I don't want to ever have a "Best" because then the rest of them just don't hold up. But I will say My first date with BF, law school graduation, the day I closed on my townhouse, the day I realized BF wanted to spend his life with me...I hope to have more

    Worst: Lord, I could go into that story, but I won't. Some things are better left untold. For what it's worth, I do only have 1 worst day. Thank goodness.

    I'd like to have a black pony, like black beauty. With a shiny, shiny coat.

    It's a tie between 3
    1. Having BF say yes after I asked him out on a date.
    3. Graduating from college.
    3. The day BF got accepted to his (and my!) first choice of where he wanted to go for grad school.

    What was the worst day of your life?
    My dad passing away.


    Oh, and if you could have a pony...what color would it be and what would you name it?
    A Palamino or an Appaloosa. I can't think of a name for it, though.

    What was the best day of your life?
    I really don't know.  I think it's going to be the day I become a home owner, which is still almost a month away.

    What was the worst day of your life?
    The day my uncle died after flipping a tractor.
    Or the day my other uncle died of cancer.

    Why?
     Uncle 1--It was hell.  It was a pretty hard hit to my family, and we kind of been a little broken since. 
    Uncle 2--We were still in pain from Uncle 1, even though it had been 6 years.  They were brothers, and seeing the family of 6 kids go down to 4 is devastating. 
    Oh, and if you could have a pony...what color would it be and what would you name it?
    I wouldn't have a pony.  Ponies are useless.  I'd take a horse, but I'd rather have transportation that doesn't need to be fed and watered.

    Honestly, it was Sunday, walking across the stage and getting my law degree. Knowing that my parents, who always wanted me to get my JD, got to hear my name as I walked across the stage. I am the first women on my dads side to get a post grad degree, and the first person on my moms side to get a BA, let alone a JD. It was a pretty rocking day!

    What was the worst day of your life?
    I think it was the day my Grandpa Paul passed. He was my last GP, we were close and his death was very sudden. I realized that I would never have a GP at my graduation, wedding or other big life event, and that my parents were 'next', as it were.
    Oh, and if you could have a pony...what color would it be and what would you name it?
    I would not like a pony, I would like a puppy, from the pound and I want to name it  Jake.

    What was the best day of your life? My first date with andrew was AMAZING. However- I realized that he was the one on the third date- so I would say the third date- definitely. We went to this incredible estate called Filoli (clicky). The whole date was actually a suprise, which was really thoughtful. I was so happy to be with him- it brought me to tears. (Weird, right?) Here are some pictures from the trip:

    Our first picture together:




    What was the worst day of your life? My mother had a pretty substantial surgery when I was a sophomore in college. She brought me into her room and told me all the things she wanted me to know if she didn't make it through the surgery. She then asked me to bring in my 7 year old sister, Alyssa- so she could speak to her alone, as well. I waited outside of the door. Once Alyssa stumbled out of the door, I held her in my arms and let her cry. I couldn't promise her that our mother wasn't going to die- all I could do was cry with her.

    This was taken a few years later. See? All turned out okay.


    Oh, and if you could have a pony...what color would it be and what would you name it?

    Erm,,,,Haz this instead?

    Eh.  I don't want to put that on a public board.  Feel free to PM if you really want to know.

    Does it count if I already owned a pony?  Well a horse.  He was black (dark bay) and awesome.  His name was Raven

    What was the best day of your life?
    I've had a lot of really great days. The week I spent in Florida with my best friends my junior year of high school was pretty amazing.


    This is my and my best friend at the beach. It rained the day we went but it was still a blast :)



    This is the only picture I have of all of us. We were at epcot and this is the last day we were in Florida.

    What was the worst day of your life?
    The day I found out my friend had died over the intercom at school because the principle thought it was good idea to include that during the morning announcements.

    Oh, and if you could have a pony...what color would it be and what would you name it?
    It would be white with brown spots and it's name would be apples. I'd rather have a horse than a pony. I used to take riding lessons with some family friends who lived on a farm - it was so much fun :)

    Random fact of the day: I met Roy Rogers when I was 4. We went to his museum with my grandparents while it was still in Victorville, CA. He happened to be there that day and my grandpa was so excited to get a picture with him. I was very freaked out by strangers, so I wouldn't shake his hand or talk to him.

    Best Day:
    Toss Up between Three:
    The day FI proposed :)
    The day I gradjimatated college
    The day I found out I was going to spend senior year of HS in Germany.  

    Worst:
    I feel pretty fortunate to not have had too many horrid things happen.  The day in question didn't feel like the worst day then, but it's definitely felt worse the older I've gotten.  The day my Grandpa died.  Since then, grandma has gone all crazy (as discussed in the Dementia thread)

    Why?:  Because Grandma no longer knows (or cares) who I am and what I'm doing with my life.

    Pony:  I don't care what color and I don't care what his name is.  He just needs wings.  We have a well he can get water from and a gigantic yard for him to graze.  If he can clean up his own poop, he'd be perfect.

    I don't want a pony. At GS camp, I have had to sleep in the horse stables so many nights, I hate the smell of horses now :)

    Worst - Toss up. One was the first full day of college, when I had been taken advantage of the night before in a drunken stupor. I wasn't raped, perse, but he tried, and I was too drunk to say no, or anything for that matter. The next day was awful, because I was a virgin and had no idea what it was supposed to feel like if I HAD been raped, and I was forced to go to the Urgent Care clinic for the morning after pill with a group of girls I had just met the day before that turned out to be pretty nasty. The other worst was having to call my mom and tell her over the phone that the kid she had become close to (she works in a High School and frequently befriends the unpopular kids and is nice to them) had committed suicide.

    Best - The St Patty's day parade in a city near where we live in 2009. BF and I had been talking for a few months, and due to my hesitance and some friend drama we hadn't started dating or seeing each other or anything, but we had become very close and started falling for each other. At the parade, I felt like I was on a cloud and couldn't hide how I felt about him no matter how hard I tried. It was the day I realized I was in love with him. When we talked about it later on, it turned out that the day he realized he was in love with me was the day before :)

    I think my best day is still yet to come...

    My worst day?  There have been a lot of bad days.  A lot of really awful days.  But I think the worst ones were when BF was deployed to Iraq the first time during the holidays.  I would frequently cry and yell and throw my remote at the TV when the stupid Mustang commercial (when the kid who comes back from deployment and is just soooo happy his dad gives him a Mustang) would come on.  I would spontaneously burst into tears while wrapping Christmas presents.  It was pretty bad.  The 2nd deployment wasn't so horrible, because I had been through it already.  Thinking about that now is really disheartening. 

    And, I don't want a pony.  Doggies are the only pets I want.

    I wish we had a more private way to "talk" to each other.  As much as we love each other now, I think that would grow so much more if we were able to say things we knew wouldn't be public.

    Best day???  Wow so many...  I am a mother of 5, so every day that a child was born was awesome.   The day I realized I loved my FI was amazing because I was coming out of a dark point of my life (see worst day) and didn't think I would ever be happy again.  The most recent Best day was Saturday.   When FI asked me to marry him!  

    Worst day-- The day my first husband died. 

    I don't want a pony.  Can I have a solid black cat instead?   Not sure what name I would go with it would depend on attitude and personality.
