It’s Friday and that means it’s time for BYOC! Bring Your Own Crazy! We answer 5 questions in an effort to get to know each other better and to give our blogging brains a break. Copy to your own blog if you wish and ENJOY!
1. Name a Valentine gift you would NOT want to receive.
Hmmm…I had to think about this one. Maybe lingerie. I mean – yes – it fits the holiday BUT men (Rambo anyway) cannot visually see that my body is not – nor ever has been – extra small….and that’s the only size he’d buy.
2. What’s your vacation personality? Do you act/eat/talk/do things differently or completely opposite from when you are not on vacation?
I rarely vacation. If I do it’s usually short. I’m a homebody. There’s nowhere I’d rather be. Traveling stresses and scares me. I hate the unknown and I’m not a fan of being social so my vacation personality is sometimes quiet and withdrawn and stressed. At home, I’m loud and goofy and crazy so yah, I’m definitely different on vacation. If I’m with people I’m comfortable with then I can relax (like at the BOOBs event)…but it’s hard.
3. Describe yourself in 5 POSITIVE words.
4. Do you have any phobias or irrational fears or dislikes?
I have a GREAT fear of snakes. I hate odd numbers. I picked my wedding date based on the fact that it was even numbers.
I fear flying – though have no reason to. I hate elevators – based on being pretty claustrophobic. I hate talking on the phone….just cuz I’m crazy like that.
5. Repeat question: Summarize your week in blog land and in real life.
Real life has been so-so. I’ve gotten back into working out (Tabata recap on Monday – I’m still alive!) and am still actively working on being less stressed but my extended family is making that slightly impossible. I’m pretty sure that without Jenny and Rambo – I’d be in a straight jacket by now.
I have a wonderful group of girlfriends that have been through hell and back and it’s been a week full of sharing, heartache and support and awe in hearing about the true women they really are. I am honored to be a part of that group.
Blog life has been good because I got to blog about my little girls and their letters and notes. I’ve found a few new blogs to read and it’s always fun to get to know people.
