Saw this one floating around in the blogosphere, and I’ve been trying to really get into this blogging thing. (Yes, I’m a late adopter. I still have a dumbphone.)
What is the last thing you watched on TV? Grey’s Anatomy. I’m on season 7 on Netflix. Since we gave up cable when Alex was small, I feel like I have MORE to watch than I did back then. I can pick a show and watch ALL of it, and then by the time I’m done I’ve usually found several other shows to binge on. I watched Ghostbusters with Alex yesterday, too.
When did you last step outside? What were you doing? Took Alex to the library, which we do once a week. He goes through books like… well, like I did when I was his age. Then we went bowling with friends. He’s out there right now with Daddy while my lemon bars are baking!
What is on the walls of the room you are in?
A little bit of everything. Above the computer I’m currently using are a weekly calendar, Alex’s school cafeteria menu and monthly calendar, some photos and a framed handprint picture he made me when he was 2. On other walls are artwork by Alex, more family photos, and the Alex photo wall- pictures of him from newborn to one year.
If you became a multi-millionaire overnight, what would you buy? A house for us. That’s all I want in the world. And the lumber to build a fort for Alex.
Tell me something about you that most people don’t know. Hmmm. When I was Alex’s age I would play in our backyard and climb trees higher than our house.
Who made the last incoming call on your phone? My husband made the last call I took. The last one I missed was from the optician letting us know our glasses were in. I lead an exciting life.
If you could change something about your home, without worry about expense or mess, what would you do? Um, move out of it into a home that we own??
What was the last thing you bought? A half dozen doughnuts. What? I had a gift card. They have MINT OREO CREAM DOUGHNUTS, people.
Would you go bungee jumping or sky diving? I think I outgrew that phase of my life, sadly.
If you could eat lunch with one famous person, who would it be? Ed Robertson. (Barenaked Ladies)
Which store would you choose to max out your credit card? Target.
Is the glass half empty or half full? My glass is currently half full.
What’s the farthest-away place you’ve been? Ugh, Florida. Not very exotic. I have been to New Orleans, though, which was my favorite place to visit. What I remember of it at least.
What’s under your bed? Inexplicably, a lot of picture frames.
What is your favorite time of the day? Bedtime stories.
What Inspires you? Kids. They never cease to amaze me. Their creativity, natural kindness and imagination are truly inspiring. The Toodles inspires me every day and helps me find that little kid inside of me.
