Extranjera... I've been really busy @ home with E this week, so these questions have come in so very handy. Hope you enjoy the reading. If you want me to send you 5 questions, just ask.Yay! I got 5 more questions...this time from
1. being able to run like the wind or having hubby do most of the chores?
Ohhh, this is an easy one. Run like the wind, for sure. I would love to experience the feeling of accomplishing a marathon or in the very least (and probably more likely) a half marathon and honestly, on most days I don't think I'll accomplish either. My body was just not made for running, but I'll keep trying. I'm determined right now. Oh and I already do 90% of the chores here, so give me the other 10% and please let me run like the wind.
2. In the classic 90210 which character do you identify most with and why?
Ummm...would you believe I have never ever watched a single episode of that show? Truth.
3. Three items you simply cannot live without? No matter what.
internet, of course. deodorant. my iPod touch.
4. Biggest challenge you have faced so far?
I think I'm in the midst of it right now. in combination with marriage I would have to say it was losing my job last year thru NO fault of my own (not a layoff either) and with E being only 12 wks old and me being the primary breadwinner. I've never been one to sue people or businesses, but I'm now involved in a lawsuit over the whole job situation that went down. the challenge(s) have primarily been financial as a result, but I would be the first one to confirm the fact that 90% of arguments between married people revolve around finances...of course this would be only when there aren't enough financial resources to go around. Who argues when there's too much money? LOL!!
5. Your proudest moment?
Well, there is always the standard "when my son was born" but I never understood when moms would say this...the baby has to come out somehow and what exactly made them proud? That they pushed him/her out? I dunno. I can't claim that anyway since E arrived via C-section. Very little work on my part. None, in fact. So anyway, I guess it would have to be when I returned from my year-long volunteer stint living in an orphanage in super-rural Mexico with no other English language speakers. There were countless times that I wanted to go home early, in fact, I had my mom change my flight three times. I also racked up an $800 phone bill calling home crying many rivers. Mom wasn't so happy about that one. So the fact that I finally adjusted and eventually even LIKED being there and fulfilled the entire year committment (July 23, 1995 through July 22, 1996) makes me feel quite proud. Oh and I learned to speak Spanish while I was there too, which was my own personal goal.
