35 Things You May Not Have Known

Another "Blog-Lift" courtesy of Valerie

1. Where is your mobile phone? Right beside me as always (we don't have a home phone.)
2. Relationship? Happily married. Or at least on most days, it would seem so. But isn't that they way most marriages are?
3. Your hair? Newly cut short, a warm brownish color, with fresh blonde highlights and fiery red lowlights (see pictures at Flickr.)
4. Work? Me? Hell no. I gave that all up to be a SAHM in Oct. '04 - shortly thereafter I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer.
5. Your sister(s)? I have 1 sister, she's older, married w/2boys, and lives far away in Hawaii. We were close growing up, lost ways for a while, then re-connected after our mother's death. Now we're close again, and the miles between us hurt!
6. Your favorite thing? What, like to do, possession, food? I'm confused. I love scrapbooking, my wedding ring, sweets, my family - there's too much to chose just one!
7. Your dream last night? A dream involves sleep, which I hardly got any. I'm an insomniac. So no dream last night.
8. Your favorite drink? Hmm, Mr. Pibb if you can find it. Otherwise, Vanilla Coke, or Black Cherry Vanilla Coke.
9. Your dream car? A newer Durango 4x4 model, that's fully loaded with all gadgets & goodies I have now plus many more, and I want it better for the enviroment, cheaper to fill up, and get better mileage. I also want it paid off, like mine & I want cheaper insurance rates on it! (now THAT IS A DREAM!)
10. The room you're in? Uh, the bedroom, in bed, watching Rock of Love.
11. Your shoes? Always tennis shoes.
12. Your fears? Death or return of cancer.
13. What do you want to be in 10 years? A successful, published Scrapbook Artist/Designer.
14. Who did you hang out with this weekend? My hubby & brother in law. We finally sat down and watched Smoking Aces.
15. What are you not good at? Hiding my emotions and keeping my mouth shut when angry.
16. Muffin? Banana Nut or Carrot Cake ones from Marie Callender's, yummmmmmmmmm.
17. Wish list items? Money, more money & lots of it - money can buy it all, finish remodeling, pay for the house, buy new cars, install a pool, allows us to travel the world & help care financially for family and friends.
18. Where you grew up? Fairview Heights, IL - basically hell for the 1st 17 years of my life.
19. The last thing you did? Looked for something to munch on!
20. What are you wearing? pajamas.
21. What are you not wearing? my necklace, or my bracelet - haven't put them back on since my surgery.
22. Your pet? Lexie, a 5 y/o cockapoo dog.
23. Your computer? which one? We have 4 desktops, and 4 laptops. But my laptop is what I use the most, unless I'm scrapping, then it's my desktop in my Scrap Studio.
24. Your life? Despite Breast Cancer, and multiple surgeries, our life is pretty grand.
25. Your mood? It varies quite a bit, and quite often. You could say that I am one moody bitch, but I can't help that I have no hormones!
26. Missing? My gallbladder, ovaries, uterus, cervix, 16 lymph nodes from my right armpit, and both original breast - other than that, still with the original parts, plus some plastic expanders that will soon be my new boobs :)
27. What are you thinking about? That I shouldn't have had that ice cream - so much for the diet today!
28. Your car? Dodge Durango.
29. Your kitchen? In need of having the dishes done.
30. Your summer? hot & humid - so spent mostly indoors, especially since I had surgery 7/23.
31. Your favorite color? Just about any shade of blue (darker shades & greenish-blue variations the best)
32. Last time you laughed? earlier today at something on TV, but can't recall what.
33. Last time you cried? Today - I got all emotional over some stupid thing I saw on TV.
34. School? a lot of college classes taken here and there. I thought I was done, but now I want to take some photography and photoshop classes
35. Love? My wonderful family, my furbaby, and our awesome friends. I don't know where I would be today without their love and support!

Now I tag you. So have fun!
