Ruby, over at Mumma's Place has tagged me.
I've never had my blog tagged before, but I have had a blog award that required answering questions and I kind of enjoy that. As with the awards, I'll not really pass the tag on (after all, a lot of my readers are my daughters and their friends and they are currently passing around their own tag) but I do enjoy it when people have a session where they answer questions about themselves, so if any of you feel so inclined, you may consider yourself tagged and can answer these questions on your own blog. It's kind of like a little peek into someone else's life, and we all love that.
So, without further ado:
1)Where were you born?
In central North Carolina, USA. Less than 50 miles from where we are currently living.
2)What is your favorite guilty treat?
Do I have to pick just one? Oh let's see...anything with chocolate, or maybe caramel, or better yet, something that combines those two lovely confections. Ooohh, and what about cheesecake? Or cheesecake with pralines and caramel, or.....You see - so many guilty treats, so little time.
3)Do you have a phobia?
An irrational fear? Not really. I don't like going down stairs, but since I've fallen down stairs twice (once when I was pregnant-thankfully the baby was fine, and once when Bree was a baby and I was carrying her down-I kept her from getting hurt, but I wasn't so fortunate) I wouldn't really call that irrational. It doesn't keep me from going down them, I just don't like it.
4)What is your earliest childhood memory?
A house we lived in for a short time when my parents said I would have only been about 18mos. old. I can remember the layout of the house and I have a brief memory of going into the bedroom my brother and I shared, but somone must have been carrying me because I was looking down into the cribs.
5)If you were president or prime minister for a day, what changes would you make?
I don't know. I don't really think you can make significant changes in one day. I'd love for abortion to be outlawed, and for people to quit having to make everything so "politically correct". There are a lot of things I think could be handled better, mostly if people would just try to treat other people correctly and use common sense, but you can't really govern common sense or decency.
6)You can have any pampering treatment at a classy salon. What do you choose?
I don't even know what all they do at a classy, or any other type of salon. I don't ever even have my nails done. I'm not sure I could just lay there and let people mess with me. If they offered up a service where someone would spend and hour brushing your hair I would like that. I love having my hair brushed.
7)In retirement, where would you like to travel if money was no object?
I don't know about this one either. I've always thought it would be neat to see certain places in the world, but I also REALLY like staying at home. I think Ireland, England, and Italy might make it on my list. Maybe Hawaii, and I'd kind of like to see the giant sequoia trees. If only they could invent some method of travel that could get me where I want to go that day but have me back so I could sleep in my own bed (or chair, or the sofa...For someone who can sleep all those places you wouldn't think a hotel would bother me, would you? Oh well.).
Okay. There are a few more tid-bits about me. I hope you've enjoyed this peek into my head - which kind of seems like a highly indecisive area if you go by all the "I don't know." answers. :D
