to answer random get-to-know-you questions.
I thought it would be fun to do this
since I'm having a blogger's block today.
1. Do you manage your own money or do you have a financial planner who helps in some way? I do a horrible job of taking care of the money because there never is enough to go around and I must confess sometimes I rob from Peter to pay Paul when I go to see my children. That's been alot lately.
3. What is one thing you'd like to learn right now, this very week if you could? As for life -lessons to learn, I'd like to learn to be content. As for the how-to lessons, I'd also like to take a photography class.
4. How concerned are you about the recent health related news concerning Ebola? How about Enterovirus D68? I'm more concerned with the state of our nations and our relationship with Israel. I'm more concerned about terorrist attacks and the future of our country spiritually, economically, and with international affairs.
5. Garfield, Nemo, or Tigger-your favorite orange cartoon character? I'm a hyperactive Tigger, and I'd like to adventure out like Nemo, but I let fear hold me back.
6. I'm going to see Gone Girl with my neighborhood book club this week. So often books made into film are disappointing. What's a book turned film you thought was well done, in that the casting was 'like you pictured' when you read the book, and the film plot remained mostly true to the book plot? The Notebook by Nicolas Sparks. Both the book and the movie were heart-wrenching. One of those good-cry writes.
7. What is one story your family always tells about you? The time I got tickled during family prayer time and peed in my pants. My daddy was praying and passed gas and kept right on praying. Me and mama got tickled and puddled the floor. Seriously!
8. Insert your own random thought here. Blogging has become my favorite hobby. Since my parents death, I find it hard to connect with "real" people, but I'm finding that the friends I've made here are more real than the people I meet on a daily basis or that I've known forever. Sad, but true. I'm so tired of the pretense.
