BYOC on Friday

It is BYOC brought to you via Drazil.

1. Name a Valentine gift you would NOT want to receive.

I am pretty open to anything. Having had a year or two where I didn't get anything from my significant other (not my current one mind you). I can honestly say that the only thing I do not want to receive is nothing. It is after all my birthday too!! :)

Chocolate (love it)
Flowers (wonderful)
electronic things (you bet)
Wine (where?)
Household appliances (a housekeeper would be better but maybe :))
Clothes (bring it on)
Books (yep)
yarn (of course)

2. What’s your vacation personality?

I am pretty much the same. I love traveling. I do try to be more active in my vacationing now that I am on a healthier track. Where once I would have taken a car or a drive I would rather hike, rent a bike or climb stairs.

Vacationing was one of the big reasons I finally made the decision to get a lapband. I was tired of wearing out while on vacation and sitting on a bench while my husband and daughter climbed those stairs up church towers. I was tired of swollen ankles at the end of the day and I was tired of being tired on vacation. Now I don't get tired I wear my husband and daughter out. Now I climb those stairs. and although I do not eat as much food as I once did on vacation I still taste and in fact try more food than I once would have.

3. Describe yourself in 5 POSITIVE words.

Nerdy (yes I consider that a positive), Adventuresome, empathetic, Helpful, Enthusiastic.

4. Do you have any phobias or irrational fears or dislikes?

Snakes (I hate the suckers). For some reason all I have to do is catch a glimpse of one and all of the hair on my neck stands up and I go into flight mode.

I am improving with this one but I have always been afraid of the dark. I am kind of night blind and not seeing freaks me out.

5. Repeat question: Summarize your week in blog land and in real life.

Busy Busy..I buzz in for a quick check but between teaching, moving, parenting, running to the VA and taking care of my grandson Oh....and pinterist I have neglected my blog.

Snakes scare me, too! Something about them... ugh. I don't even like earthworms cuz I feel like it's just a snack with no eyes... or scales. Okay, that was a little ridiculous.

Glad you're keeping busy! :)

Nerdy is such a positive word. I love it.

How is the house coming along?

I love snakes...only because my husband is deathly afraid of them. Wife of the year...yup...that's me. LOL
