1. Speaking of skating...when did you last 'skate on thin ice', 'skate over the details', 'encounter a cheapskate', or just plain skate?
I don't know about the first three choices there, but the last time that I roller skated was when the kids were, well, kids. I had taken our older kids and their cousins roller skating. It was the year that Celine Dion's song "Because You Loved Me" came out. You can listen to it here. I was in the rink when it played and it immediately made me think of David. The line "you were my eyes when I couldn't see" just hit me right in the heart. It was released in 1996, the year that my husband had to retire due to diabetic retinopathy.
2. What would you say is the biggest problem of people your age?
3. What's your favorite accessory? Is it something you wear every day, often, or only on special occasions?
The only accessories that I wear are my wedding band and a scrunchie. I almost always wear my hair in a ponytail because I can't stand it getting in my face while I'm trying to do things.
4. January 20th is National Cheese Lover's Day. Are you a lover of cheese? What's your favorite dish made with cheese? Last thing you ate that contained some kind of cheese?
I love cheese, but it doesn't love me in return. It makes it hard for me to breathe, but I generally eat it anyway and just fight my way through the extra congestion that it causes. The last time that I remember having cheese was last week when we had pizza.
5. What's something guaranteed to make you roll your eyes?
Though I know that I roll my eyes plenty, at the moment I can't think of what makes me roll them.
6. Your favorite book series?
I love the Blossom Street Series by Debbie Macomber. The first book that I read in the series was Susannah's Garden, which was actually the third book of the series. I was hooked and in tears before I finished the first chapter.
7. Why did you choose your profession?
Does motherhood count as a profession? There were several things that I wanted to do when I grew up and on the top of that list were getting married and having babies. I also wanted to be a teacher and an architect. Three out of four isn't all that bad. I chickened out of architecture due to the math. I didn't want to be responsible for a building collapsing and killing people due to my faulty design or inability to "math". Specifically why I wanted to be a wife, mother, and teacher, I don't know, but I know that I was very blessed to have those dreams come true.
The other profession, merchandising, chose me. I didn't choose it. Apparently, arranging store merchandise in a manner that increases sales is something that comes naturally to me.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
It's almost October. Mo wigi! Sorry, a family joke. I couldn't resist!
