A sweet reader named Sarah B. emailed me a questionnaire and I thought it'd be fun to play along.  So, here it goes.

 When were you happiest?

When I'm with my family.

What is your earliest memory? 

I vividly remember the chaos surrounding me when my brother Corey was born.  I remember who was watching me, visiting him in the hospital - the whole thing. I even remember what I was wearing; a pink and white striped shirt and Mrs. Potato Head earrings (the gold ones) on my ears.

What was your most embarrassing moment? 

Probably when I was serving at a restaurant and was pretending to ice skate on the freshly mopped floor. A white mini skirt and an attempt at a twirl on slippery floors is an absolute recipe for disaster.  I ended up on my hands and knees with my skirt up over my back side.  So humiliating. 

Where would you like to live? 

Somewhere that's quiet with some open land.

What is your most unappealing habit? 

There are so many.  Biting the skin around my nails is pretty disgusting.  And, eating peanut butter straight from the jar can be pretty unappealing.

What is your favorite smell? 

Maja's smell.

What is your favorite word? 


What is the worst thing anyone's said to you? 

"You're a waste of space" I know that doesn't sound that awful and, I'm sure that people have said much worse of me.  I think it was said to me about 15 years ago and has always stuck with me.

Cat or dog? 


What makes you unhappy? 

Illness; for me or any of my loved ones.

What do you owe your parents? 


Which words or phrases do you most overuse? 

Basically any curse word. It's such an awful habit; I just can't help myself.

What is the worst job you've done? 

A wedding 5 days postpartum, while M was in the NICU.  The bride was HORRIBLE to me.  It was the absolute worst day and job ever. 

When did you last cry, and why? 

I honestly can't remember.  I want to say it was after reading a book but, I really can't be certain.  I think I'm in need of a good cry!

What is the closest you've come to death? 

I bailed on going out, in high school, and less than a minute after not getting into someone's car, they got in a horrible accident.  I can't say that I was close to death, but that's the closest thing I've come to a what-if situation.

What single thing would improve the quality of your life? 

An assistant or helper. (for work stuff)

What song would you like played at your funeral? 

I'll be seeing you by Billie Holiday

How would you like to be remembered? 

As a kind person. Though, once I'm gone, it doesn't really matter.

What is the most important lesson life has taught you? 

That everything changes. "This too shall pass" Keep on moving forward.

Where would you most like to be right now? 

Right now, I'm happy where I am.
