1. In what ways do you indulge yourself?
I would have to say buying clothes for myself. It feels indulgent, anyway, when I buy something I like without even thinking about a budget or anything. A couple of other ways would be when I take the time to work on a quilt project. I always have something else around home that I can be doing.2. Have you ever taken a cooking class? Any interest? What type of class would you most like to try?
I have never taken one and haven't really thought about doing it. If I did, I would want to learn more tricks of the trade in cooking finer cuisine. I think I'm fairly good at cooking, but my food isn't fancy.
3. What does it mean to be a good citizen?
I think it means having a love for your country, honoring those that serve and sacrifice their lives everyday for our freedoms, showing respect to others, following the laws, and just being a kind and decent person.
4. 'Tis the season of the political advert...do these ads influence your vote?
Absolutely not. I promptly take the ones I find in my mailbox and place them in the recycle bin, and change the channel if the remote is handy.
5. What's something you see today that makes you wish you were a kid again?
Just watching my kids enjoy their sports lately makes me wish I had taken those opportunities myself. I especially love watching my girls play volleyball. I love the game, but my high school didn't have a volleyball team. I was a cheerleader and had fun doing that, however given the opportunity, I would have chosen volleyball.
6. What's your least favorite cliche?
"I don't mean to be rude, but..." Uh, yes you do.
7. What percentage of your Christmas shopping has been completed? How does that make you feel?
Maybe 5%?? I'm not stressing about that, though. It'll get done in due time.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
This morning I was all about getting dinner made by 9 am. Oh, I was proud of myself alright. I was feeling pretty great about my "Cheddar Chowder" when I left it on the stove on medium as I took care of a couple of patients down in my office. I was smelling how yummy it was until I realized I shouldn't be smelling it so well downstairs. As soon as my patient left, I bolted upstairs to find a bubbling pot with mushy vegetables swimming in a sea of burnt cheese. Awesome! Perhaps I do need a cooking class!
