Life is Good
Gee, thanks for this Jess.
Q1. If you blog anonymously, are you happy doing this? If you aren't anonymous, do you wish you started out anonymously so that you could be anonymous now?
I think this is a semi anonymous blog. My family and friends know who I am, and I use pseudonyms for myself and my hubby. I try to be cautious about posting pictures that include our address, school name, and streets around here.
Q2. Describe an incident that shows your inner stubborn side.
I don't think the stubborn side of me is "inner" at all.
Q3. What do you really see when you look at yourself in the mirror?
Someone who is aging... honestly. I still feel 15 most of the time, but that is not the girl/woman I see when I look in the mirror. I am happier than I was at 15 though.
Q4. What is your favorite summer cold drink?
Fresh, real lemonade or ice water with lemon or cucumber in it and iced tea (non-sweetened.)
Q5. When you take time for yourself, what do you do?
I read in the bath, or have a girls' night out with friends. Reading in general whenever and wherever I am.
Q6. Is there something you still want to accomplish in your life?
The birth of this baby? My kids graduating from college? Um, figuring out what I want to be, possibly a lactation consultant, but really I don't know.
Q7. When you attended school, were you the class clown, the class overachiever, the shy person, or always ditching?
My senior year I was voted most creative (I think its been a little while)... but I didn't see myself that way. I was none of the stereotypes, and all of them. I was a band nerd for sure, until my senior year.
Q8. If you close your eyes and want to visualize a very poignant moment in your life, what would you see?
The birth of my second child. Doing it, at home, without drugs. I think because I am 31 weeks pregnant right now this is foremost in my head whenever I close my eyes. I am merely months away from doing it all over again... yikes.
Q9. Is it easy for you to share your true self in your blog, or are you more comfortable writing posts about other people or events?
I share my "true self" easily in my blog. In real life I am quiet and reserved, shy even. In this blog, I am in charge and can write about ME ME ME and I don't worry about the repercussions (for the most part). However this is easy simply because I have written about myself in personal journals since kindergarten (my mom started my first journal, a notebook with Carebears on it then.)
Q10. If you had the choice to sit down and read a book or talk on the phone, which would you do and why?
Read, which I love to do.
I hate hate hate hate hate talking on the phone. I'll email back and forth with you, and gladly write you a letter, but I will try to get off the phone as soon as I answer it. This was a pain when Will was in Iraq, neither of us like to talk on the phone.
