It’s Willow’s Fault!! :-D

Ok.. this is all amommasview‘s fault!! She wanted me to answer some more questions… so I said I would! Here ya go!! But in reality it all started out as Willow’s Fault!! LOL!!!

  1. Does jet-lag affect you?
    Yes it does, but it’s been a while since I have flown far enough to see how bad it’s going to be this time around. I guess I will find out in a couple of weeks!
  2. Are you afraid to walk alone at night?
    Not really. But I usually not walk around in the night on my own anymore. I try to be as alert as possible if I have to. ( I like this answer so I’m keepin it!) 😉
  3. How did it make you feel the first time you ever held a baby in your arms — yours or someone else’s?
    It was awesome! The first baby I held was my brother! I was 11 years old… he is still awesome!
  4. Do you fold your undergarments and socks?
    I fold my undies, but I turn my sox inside one another.
  5. Is there a specific place where you go to think? where is it and why there?
    Outside in my swing with a cup of coffee..
  6. How many houseplants do you have? How are they faring? 
    I have 11 and they are all doing well. I have a knack for keeping them alive. Several of them are very old… like 20+ years.
  7. Do you have a garden — flower or vegetable? 
    No. I wish I could but I have too much shade and not enough time.
  8. How many hats do you own? Do you wear them all?
    I own about 4 and I never wear any of them. They are all commemorative.
  9. Does your best friend call you their best friend?
    Yes.. I have 2 BFFs and they both consider me one of their BFFs!
  10. Do you struggle to finish a bad book or do you set it aside forever? 
    Can you believe that I almost threw “The Gone Girl” out? (amommasview answer) OMG! Right???? I didn’t read the book but I saw the movie and I HATED IT!!!! *steps off soapbox* Anyhoo… I will not finish a bad book. I will put it down and find something else!
  11. Have you ever been in a food fight?
    Nope.. no fight. I love peace all the way baby!
  12. Have you ever brought a stray animal home?
    Yep, I rescue dogs in my area all the time. Bring them home and find the owner or a good home. I’m a sap that way…
  13. Can a well-written book make you care about their characters enough to cry for them?
    Most definitely yes…
  14. Have you seen Karma at work in your life?
    ALL the time!!! What goes around comes around baby!
  15. How do you deliver bad news?
    Fortunately I haven’t had to do this too many times. But I can. I am kind and soft spoken and I try to make sure there is plenty of tissues and support from others if they nee it.
  16. In general, how do you feel when you come home from a long vacation?
    Happy, full of memories and tired…Again… I agree, so I left this one!
  17. Are book covers important in getting you to read a book?
    Nope… I rarely look at book covers. I mostly listen to audible books anyway, so I pay no attention to them.

    I have about 20 pairs of shoes. No orphans..
  19. How would you describe your housekeeping strategy?
    Invite people over when it’s time to clean… then I will make sure it gets done!! LOL!
  20. If you could be a superhero, would you take that chance?
    Probably not… I don’t want the responsibility of any more than I already have!
  21. If you had the wherewithal to invent something, anything, what would it be?
    And see this is it! If I would know what I would invent if I could, I would invent it… I would have done it a long time ago… AMEN SISTER!
  22. If you had to live for a month on what’s in your refrigerator, would you make it?
    No.. there isn’t enough food. I only buy what I need a week at a time.. if that.
  23. Name something that seemed inconsequential but had a huge influence on your life (for example, a commercial, a postcard, or something you might have overheard).
    I overheard my mother tell someone I had an “Unteachable spirit” and that I was so much harder to deal with than anyone else knew…….. she doesn’t know I heard her say that, but I have spent the last 30 years of my life doing everything in my power to prove her wrong 😦
  24. How do you feel about the idea of Artificial Intelligence? Or robots in general?
    I think it can be good for some things, but I would never want it to replace humans.

    More stars:-). Beautiful, sparkling stars…
  27. What are the most common lies your peer group tells?

  34. Are there habits other people have that you find suspicious?

    I don’t know.. I have been 10,000 feet in the air with a parachute? Does that count??
  49. Is there something that you do now, but wouldn’t do if it weren’t for the law (for example carry car insurance or wear your seat belt).

Yes.. that’s a good way to end this!  Y’all come back now.. ya hear! 🙂

  1. Hey, I heard that “The Gone Girl” movie is actually so bad compared to the book… And, heck, #23 must have stung… actually reminded me of something my Dad once said… funny how this only pops up now… he was such a lovely great dad but that night he said that both, me and my brother, will never get anywhere without him helping us network… well, I guess at least in my case I proved him wrong… looking at what my brother does now… well… I guess he was right…

    • I know.. right? Well… I don’t have a relationship with my mother. She is bi-polar or something. She is coo coo for Cocoa Puffs. O_o I tried for years but she blames me for all of her problems. One of those people who DO NOTHING WRONG… you know, EVER? I haven’t talked to her in over a year. My brother, on the other hand, is the golden child who can do no wrong. She actually wanted HIM.. unlike me. MY father (we have different dads) told her he couldn’t get her pregnant. She never wanted kids (until she wanted to get pregnant with my brother) … It’s been 53 years and she has never forgiven him or let me forget it. Whatever. I have moved on. My brother really is awesome and I love him dearly, but she has tried to destroy our relationship on more than one occasion. She thinks I have tried to turn him against her! So…… *steps off soapbox* sorry :-/

      • Hey, don’t be sorry. I will not start on my issues with my mom… not sure if we are good at this very moment, but you know it changes constantly and whenever I think we are good she lashes out again… Made me sad for a while but I learned that toxic people can also be members of your family and that it is best to shut them out as well. I learned that you can love someone but at the same time not like them at all. She can’t hurt me anymore. I managed to become a “duck” and let it just drip off…

      • That is exactly what I have had to do. I had to get to a point where I didn’t let her close enough to hurt me anymore. She has accused me of the most god awful things that don’t even make sense! It’s sad. Just when I think everything is ok, she pulls a new one out of the blue. I’m so done.. but my daughter still has somewhat of a relationship with her. Although they aren’t speaking right now because my mother did something that really hurt her. I’m not going to tell her to stay away but I try to encourage her not to let my mom get close enough. She is learning the hard way, but it’s difficult since my mom is her only living grandmother.. :-/
