    ha ha ha! uh ..there isn’t a number high enough for me to answer this. Somebody in the house has to be in control right? I stepped up to the plate and took over. I think when thrown into it we do what we gotta do..if it were left to anybody else around her JS would get done and that’s not acceptable to me.
    Same thing out and about…if we sit and think about something for more than 5 minutes..I’m going to start handing out assigments…that’s the manager part in me coming out. Delegation is one of my favorite words. 🙂

    btw..yes I know that assignments is missing an “n”.. I hate these no edit post things 😦 why can’t these blogger things come up with an edit? OHH see…that means I’m not in control and I dont’ like it..don’t like it a bit!

    Depends on what’s being controlled. About raising my kids? 9 or higher. About keeping the household in order? About 5 nowadays (used to be a lot higher, it’s inching down as I get older.) About what I’m gonna do today? 9 or higher. About what anyone else is gonna do today? 1 or lower.

  4. Tosha says:

    Probably a 9.. I tend to fight others for control over things. I come across as pushy but its my inability to let go of control..

    10 on the kids and for the Mrs. … about a 4 (but it’s more of a manipulation thing than control). 😉

    I would have to say it depends on who I am around at the time. Others have touched on that. I think we get in control when we feel WE “need” to be in control, because no one else is stepping up to it when you need someone to be. Does that make sense? Well, I know what I mean! HaHa It depends on what “hat” you are wearing at the time. You could be “mom”….”manager”….”big sister”…or whatevert”title” you are carrying. I’ll shut up now! Have a great day!

    Depends on the situation and the person, a balanced 5?

  8. Joy says:

    I’m really not very controlling. I’d just as soon let someone else make decisions. I am very nosy though.

  9. Morocco says:

    I’ve relaxed a bit over the years, so I’d say about a 6 or 7. The older I get I find that some things just don’t matter. There is a greater prize to be focused on (living) and worrying about and trying to control everything just isn’t it.

    I think I also realized that what I have control of, in all actuality of is VERY little. Plus I had to decide if I wanted peace or perfection.

    I used to be a 20+ but as I have gotten older I have mellowed out some. I am probably about a 7 or 8 now.

    My favorite phrase, which my youngest daughter said to me this Christmas while we were making a Gingebread house together, is: “It doesn’t have to be perfect, it just has to be fun!” I made her write it down on a piece of paper and i put it with a picture of her with the Gingerbread House and I framed it and hung it in my kitchen!

  11. Joy says:

    That’s awesome Just A Mom.

    Eh probably like a 2! I’m not really interested in being in charge or having control over something. I see it this way…if it gets screwed up it’s not MY fault!!!! I try to stay in control of how clean my house it, but I live with a bunch of boys so yea I’m a 2!

  13. Gary says:

    I used to be about a 9 but over the years I have relaxed a bit and would say I’m about a 5 now. This number depends of course on the situation but for the most part a 5.

    thats hard to answer.I like to be in control of my life,I dont like men controlling me,they have all my life(thats a book in itself).Ha ha!! I do what I can in a day,without stress is a good day,being in control is hard and not my thing.I do what has to be done in my life,but friends and family come first.I do control who I allow to enter my personnel space.If they are too negative,I do control how they affect me as a person,and if I need them in it.If i am controling,i dont think so.I think asking a close person to me would be a better bet.
