1. Are you excited for the holidays or are you dreading them?
Closer to dreading than excited. The older I get the less excited I am. Putting up the decorations just seems like more and more work. And I love buying presents for those I care about...but it seems to get harder every year. Mom & Dad buy everything they need when they see they need it. And my son and husband are so specialized with what they want (games & audio/visual stuff) that it's hard to surprise them. And, then, there's the friend who decided we just shouldn't "do this present thing anymore." Takes a lot of the joy out of it.
2. Do you hit the snooze button or get right up?
Neither. I wake up to the radio. I lay there in a semi-doze and listen to a few songs until the news comes on. I listen to the news and weather and then get up. It's how I ease into the day.
3. Do you still have your tonsils?
Yep. I wanted them out when my cousins had theirs out (I was about 5 or 6). There were rumors of ice cream. The doctor said I didn't need them out. In fact, he was one of the old-fashioned types who believed that God gave you those parts for a reason and they weren't coming out unless it was absolutely necessary. Then when I was about 12, I had another bout of tonsillitis (I was prone to it) and he told me that if I had one more bout then the tonsils would come out. I told him I didn't want them out now. I didn't have any more tonsil problems for a good long while after that.
4. What was the last piece of candy that you ate?
Um. Not sure. It was at work on Friday and was either a plain Hersheys or a Dove dark chocolate. Or maybe an Almond Joy. I have all of those in a basket on my desk. Left-over fun sizes from Halloween.
5. Do you shop at thrift stores?
I have--and have found some great clothes. But I haven't done so lately.
