What's the best advice anyone ever gave you?
I'm not sure if this counts as advice or not, but when I was pregnant for the first time I was telling my grandma things that other people were telling me about the process. They were upsetting me with horror stories about it being the most awful pain in the world, etc. Grandma told me "it isn't a day at the beach, but it isn't anything to get all worked up over either". She was my calming force. I could trust her and she was right. My obstetrician had initially been unsure if I'd be able to deliver our baby without a c-section. He had the crash cart ready. Dr. Hearne told my husband after I had our son that I was the best Lamaze patient he'd ever had. I credit Grandma for that. Had it not been for her, those other people (and one in particular) would have had me so terrified that a c-section would indeed have been necessary.
Do you have houseplants?
Do dead ones count? I've got lots of those!
Do mosquitoes bother you or leave you alone?
They think that I'm a smorgasbord, 24-hr, all-you-can-eat dining and the mosquitoes around here apparently love garlic!
What's your favorite charity? If you have one.
I would have to say that Braden's Hope is at the top of the list. There are others, but this one is very close to my heart. Please visit the site to read about the work that they are doing.
Do you like mint? Which variety is your favorite?
I like mint okay, but I can't eat a lot of it at a time. I like the kind that is in choco-mint cookies. I can only eat a couple at one time, though. If I eat more than that, my tummy starts to feel really icky. I haven't had any of these cookies in forever.
PS Patrice! David says to let Wendell know that he has some carrots for him over at his website, too!
