1.) What is your biggest pet peeve?
Inside-out socks. I know, I know, random. However, they have been annoying me for nearly 10 years now, with no outlook in the future for a change. Some days I think I might actually be resigned to simply accepting my fate and rolling with it. Then he brings his gym bag home, and, nope, I really hate them again! Seriously though, how hard is it to take your socks off without turning them inside out?
2.) If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
I can't pick one! I really want to see so many more places before we "retire". Isn't that suppose to be one of the joys of military life? Getting to "see the world"? I have only been to three out of the seven continents. I am not anywhere close to finished exploring yet.
However, I must admit a very strong fondness for Norway in the summer. I don't think I would survive a winter, but a Norwegian summer is unbelievable!
3.) Have you ever been searched by the cops? (inquiring minds want to know...)
Nope. I am afraid (for the sake of the interest level of this blog post) and thankful (for the sake of my sanity) that I have had a very limited and boring amount of interaction with law enforcement. I was ticketed once for not wearing my seatbelt, and another time for speeding. Another time I got a warning for speeding. That last one was about 8 years ago. I am a conservative little momma driver now.
I think this could catch me now!I did see an hilarious bumper sticker the other day "Caution, I drive like a Cullen". If you don't know what that means, you wouldn't get it anyway. It made me laugh though because she did drive with abandon, at least for the three or four seconds I could keep up!
4.) What is the one thing on your mind right now?
Pain. So many people around me have so much pain, all the time. I knew that. I did. But it is a bit more real today. I don't want to deal with it, which is why I am doing a blog like this, rather then trying to write something deep. I know we all have our own pain, but stop sometime and look around. We aren't the only ones. Every one is hurting.
I just want to grab some people up and hold them, and make the hurt go away.
But I am not doing a serious post tonight. See. I'm not.
5.) Favorite song right now?
I have been into old hymns and really old praise and worship songs from when I was a kid. Blessed Assurance by Fanny Crosby, There is a Redeemer by Keith Green, and I have often caught myself randomly breaking out into Psalty the singing songbook music lately. My past is calling to me.
6.) What talent do you wish you had?
At this moment, the ability to pack boxes neatly with the assurance nothing in them would break, and with confidence that I am sending the right things to storage and the right things to my parent's. Complicated talent, huh? Try doing all that without having the talent!
7.) Favorite Drink?
Decaf Green tea brewed with blueberry leaves for extra flavor and sweetened with Splenda.
Blueberry Raspberry Fuze comes in a close second. Are we noticing a trend here?
8.) In one word, how would you describe yourself?
Upon completion I am supposed to tag 8 more people, and ask them 8 random questions too. I am not sure that 8 people actually read this blog, but I will throw some questions out there, and some names too. We'll just see what happens.
1.) What is your favorite childhood memory?
2.) If you could have any job, what would it be, and why?
3.) What is your favorite sport?
4.) Have you ever done something "dangerous" - and how do you define that?
5.) What is your favorite holiday?
6.) When is your average bedtime?
7.) What is your favorite song (right now)?
8.) In one word, describe yourself.
As you can see, I stole a couple of her questions.
