Good Morning Everyone!
I knew it would be inevitable that I would be sent a meme… it seems like every blog has to have at least one ;). I woke up to this one sitting in my Graceful Agony email account this morning…. so I thought I would give it a go while having my morning coffee…
I am supposed to tag 3 people – but I wouldn’t be so cruel 😉 So feel free to tag yourselves and answer these questions on your own site if you wish… and if you don’t want to, then don’t!
The layers of me
current location: Canada – Beside the beautiful Rockies
eye color: Green
hair color: Right now? LOL! Brunette.. after being BLONDE for many many years
righty or lefty: I am left-handed
zodiac sign: Cancer
your heritage: I am adopted, so hard to tell… I believe my birth mother had a last name of Swiss origin. But my Mom and Dad are from England and Wales, and I relate to those traditions.
the shoes you wore today: No shoes…. and I plan on keeping that way as long as I can… I have nerve pain in my feet!
your weakness: Isn’t that the worst question to answer! Like in a job interview, you are supposed to make your ‘weakness’ sound like a strength! LOL! I’d say chocolate is a HUGE weakness…
your fears: I fear that I will live a life with pain and not find relief and I fear losing people I love.
your perfect pizza: My perfect pizza is ANY pizza that I get to share with BOTH of my boys.
your most overused phrase(s) on AIM: I don’t use AIM… but I do use Blackberry Messenger everyday, and my most used phrase would have to be “I love you honey”
your first waking thoughts: are usually… Ouch… yikes… and Aaahhhh….
your best physical feature: This is a HARD question to answer… probably my eyes…
your most missed memory: This is a general question that could be read different ways… But I miss being able to speak to my brother.
pepsi or coke: Coke
mcdonald’s or burger king: McDonald’s.. only because my son loves it there, and I like to make him happy!
single or group dates: Both… But I honestly feel like every day is a date with my honey… even hanging at home doing laundry and vacuuming feels like a date with him… I am SOOO lucky!
adidas or nike: Neither…. I hate wearing sneakers!
lipton ice tea or nestea: Either, it doesn’t matter to me. I don’t drink iced tea very often.
cappuccino or coffee: BOTH!!!
cuss: Yes… I cuss probably more than I should.
sing: I love to sing, and do it often when we are driving in the car… my honey has been known to roll his eyes and laugh at me!
do you think you’ve been in love: I absolutely KNOW I have been in love… with my Dad, my honey, and my son…
want to go to college: This is my biggest regret! I never completed college, and given the opportunity (and the $$) I would LOVE to be a student again!
want to get married: YES, one day!
believe in yourself: Yes I believe in myself… I didn’t before chronic pain, but I sure do now.
get motion sickness: I get horrible motion sickness at times… and I get vertigo EVERY time I fly…
think you’re attractive: That is a hard question for me to answer, I don’t think of myself in those terms… I am more concerned with how attractive I am on the inside.
think you’re a health freak: Not a textbook health freak, but I am in some ways.. I have to be, I am the only one who can advocate for myself as far as my illnesses are concerned.
get along with your parents: Absolutely!! I LOVE MY MOM AND DAD!!
like thunderstorms: After you have had an indirect lightning strike, you tend NOT to enjoy thunderstorms… I am not kidding… I had my head burned by lightning!
play an instrument: I have 3 guitars and I am trying to learn.
in the past month…
drank alcohol: Yes
done a drug: That is a funny question to ask a chronic pain patient… LOL! Define ‘drug’!
made out: Absolutely! 🙂
gone on a date: Absolutely 🙂
gone to the mall: Yep!
eaten an entire box of oreos: In one sitting? NO! In a week? YES
eaten sushi:I love SUSHI!! I just had it last week!
been on stage: No… and I am not a big fan of being on any stage… makes me too nervous!
been dumped: Absolutely NOT!
gone skating: Ha ha…. Some days I have a hard time walking even!
made homemade cookies: Not in the last month, but I LOVE to bake!
gone skinny dipping: I skinny dip in my big jetted bath tub daily 😉
dyed your hair: YES!
stolen anything: NO! Except maybe my honey’s heart;) Cheesy I know…
Remember this is only in the past month
played a game that required removal of clothing: The only ‘game’ I play that requires removing my clothing is the “health care” game at my Doctor’s office every couple of weeks, does that count? I know, aren’t I a crazy girl?!?
if so, was it mixed company: umm…. no
been trashed or extremely intoxicated: Absolutely NOT
been caught “doing something”: What does that mean?!? I get “caught” doing the laundry, I get “caught” watching TV when I should be vacuuming… I am a housewife…. 🙂
changed who you were to fit in: I am PERFECTLY me, take it or leave it… I am way past the point in my life that I change for anyone.
age you hope to be married: Been and gone.. Married once.. Divorced once… 😉 Not many “young’ marriages work out these days…
numbers and names of children: I have 1 amazing boy… I thought I would have at least 2 or 3 children, but I may not be given that opportunity… so I try to concentrate on the one miracle I already have in my life..
describe your dream wedding: Anywhere, Anytime, Any place with the love of my life… I don’t think I would have a traditional wedding again… It isn’t about the wedding day – it is about integrity, respect, and love in a marriage that counts.
what do you want to be when you grow up: I don’t want to ever grow up 😉 Seriously, I would like to work in psychology, addictions counselling, or in the chronic pain world.
what country would you most like to visit: I would love to go back to the South Pacific!
number of cds that i own: HUNDREDS
number of piercings: I have 7 ear piercings… and none anywhere else.
number of tattoos: I don’t have one YET – my I keep thinking about getting one.
number of scars on my body: I have a few.. a heart surgery scar, scars on my face from being mauled by a dog, scars on my belly from surgery… gosh… I have quite a few actually…
number of things in my past that i regret: I try not to concentrate on regrets… Every ‘regret’ I have ever had I have learned something that by far surpasses the regret in the first place… The only thing I wish I had learned earlier in life was to stand up for myself… Had I learned that when I was much younger, I probably could have prevented a lot of pain.
